Vanilla

I love the fragrance of vanilla; it is one of my favorite scents in the world. I love it in every thing...ice cream, cookies, coffee, and of course perfume.  I'm not sure why I love the scent of vanilla so much; it's such a comforting scent to me. When I first began blending fragrances, I knew I wanted a vanilla scent, but wanted to stay clear of the overly sweet vanillas out there. I wanted the type of vanilla that would feel feel like you were wrapped up in your favorite blanket on a snowy day; warm, cozy and comforting....


Spring Memories

Spring Memories

Spring is my second favorite time of year; fall is my first. I love all the blooming flowers and having the windows; being able to run out of the house without 72 sweaters, a coat that make you look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters and the gloves and/or hat you will loose the minute you step outside. I wear the same fragrances throughout the year; I will wear anything with vanilla even if it's a thousand degrees out. However, I do have scent that is my spring scent, lilac. Lilacs are my favorite flower; they make me smile...

How I make my favorite scent last longer

I thought this week I would share one of my favorite ways to make your scent last  longer; I am going to say, though, no matter what, some fragrances just don't work with certain chemistry. My skin hates citrus scents; I swear they disappear the second I apply them. I am pretty sure I could bathe in a tub of citrus perfume, use citrus scented lotion after and finally, apply a gallon of citrus based perfume and you would never know it! My favorite tip is to use unscented lotion ( or a lotion scented with your favorite scent) before...


Why can't I smell my fragrance anymore?

Why can't I smell my fragrance anymore?

This week I thought I would talk to about the dilemma every fragrance lover faces...why doesn't my fragrance last. There are many reasons for this, the first is you're used to it! If you wear the same fragrance every day, you become used to it. There is no reason to go overboard with spraying more and making everyone around you hate your favorite scent! I would suggest either continuing wearing the same amount or switch to a new scent for a while. If you wear the same fragrance every day, you become used to it. There is no reason to go...
