Pirates, Mermaids & Zombies- OH MY!

Ahoy, Sweets! I have been ever-so zealously awaiting the arrival of the newest Pirates of the Caribbean movie: On Stranger Tides starring Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz. In part because I wanted to draw inspiration for a few more pirate/ocean/mermaid scents for my perfumes and in part because I can always use a 2 hour tropical get-away. Be ye fore warned: Go ye not into the theater expecting a great-grand story line that will keep you on the edge of yer seat matey. But if you want to get lost for a couple hours in whimsical costumes while brushing upon your pirate lingo and admiring a great deal of pirate (Johnny Depp) booty I say- full speed ahead ye landlubbers!

This 4th instalment had a {not-so-scary} zombie crew members, sword fights, prison breaks, perilous cliff dives, a mutiny, {super-model} mermaids, a search for the fountain of youth & even Black Beard himself. A good portion of the movie revolves around trying to catch a mermaid {sounds simple enough, right?}. Disney's newest shining star, Astrid Berges-Frisbey plays Syrena, the enchanting mermaid who just happens to be part of a coven of vampire-like-mermaids {words simply can't describe the bloody-horror}. Go watch fer yer self unless yer chicken- Yo-Ho-Ho!
