Ever wonder what comic book icon Stan Lee smells like? It's a mix of bergamot, ginger, white pepper, basil, violet, and finished off with cedar, vetiver and musk. The creator of popular Marvel Comics characters such as the X-Men and the Hulk teamed with the Lutherville-based JADS International to create his namesake scent, Stan Lee Signature Cologne. The company describes the cologne as a "fresh and sophisticated fragrance for the adventurous. " Andrew Levine, 48, chief executive officer of JADS International, said the collaboration is the result of meeting Lee at a Comic-Con event in Philadelphia last year.

Two weeks after Violet Ripken was abducted at gunpoint, she said it was "too soon to share any thoughts" about the ordeal as she took in a game Wednesday night at the Aberdeen stadium named for her famous baseball family. Ripken, the 74-year-old mother of Orioles "Ironman" Cal Ripken Jr. and widow of former Orioles manager Cal Ripken Sr., came out of Conrad's Crabs restaurant at Ripken Stadium shortly after the start of the Aberdeen IronBirds game and smiled as she chatted with an usher, her hand on his arm. Approached by a reporter, she spoke briefly before being escorted away by the usher.

I've never been one for flowers. I don't want to smell like them, don't want to receive them, don't even want to take care of them. But leave it to Pazo in Harbor East to make me want to drink them. The Blue Velvet is the stylish restaurant's standout violet-infused cocktail. Crème de violette, a brandy liqueur made from the actual flower, is the sweet star of the show. "It's unlike anything you've ever had," said bartender Carmen Motto. She's right. Though the Blue Velvet consists of only three ingredients, its creamy blue tint and intoxicating, floral aroma is entirely unique.

The most distinctive piece of the National, an indie-rock quintet from Brooklyn, N.Y.-via-Cincinnati, is lead singer Matt Berninger's slurred baritone. It's a smooth, low purr that, when combined with the band's circular guitars and Bryan Devendorf's expert drumming, lulls listeners into a trance. This combination has led to great success, including 2010's High Violet, a gold record that debuted No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and won Q magazine's best album of the year. Tuesday, the National will be at Merriweather Post Pavilion . Bassist Scott Devendorf took time from the band's European festival run to talk about High Violet's success, tour-mates Wye Oak and the group's support of President Obama.

The windows of the Westons' house, located 60 miles northwest of Tulsa, are covered with dark paper year-round. The inhabitants "don't differentiate between night and day." They're content to be trapped in a long, dim tunnel of memories, some suppressed and others obsessed over, until one family member chooses to escape the hard way. Ramifications of that decision provide abundant fuel for the three-hour-plus running time of "August: Osage County," the 2008 Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning roller-coaster of a play by Tracy Letts that is now at the Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theater.

In its second play of the season, Colonial Players delivers Richard Greenberg's "The Violet Hour," riveting, reflective theater that takes the audience into nostalgic and challenging territory. It is to my knowledge the first work performed in the area of the acclaimed contemporary playwright. He has written 27 plays, receiving numerous awards, including the Tony and Drama Desk, and is revered for his intellect and unpredictability. Set in 1919, "The Violet Hour" tells the story of a Princeton University-educated independent publisher launching his business and trying to decide which of two authors' books to publish - a friend's over-written work containing some brilliant writing, or that of his current love interest, a seductive African-American singer's honest autobiography.
