So Much More Than Scents: Natural Perfumes Spotlight
Like words and images, smells can tell stories. Which is why choosing the right fragrance – one that really suits you – is no small feat. A significant, extremely personal decision, your signature scent should speak to your own unique blend of beauty.
We’ve put together this post because as you’ve mentioned and we well know, shopping for perfume online can be a little challenging. These more thorough descriptions combined with an account of our own experience wearing them are sure to help.
This product came to fruition in a lovely way. Manhattan’s elite (including beauty editors with extremely high standards) were perpetually encouraging Vered, a top-tier aesthetician, to bottle the signature scent she uses in her facials. To appease her pleading clients and share the goodness with everyday people, she took their advice.
Made up of a proprietary blend of certified organic, ethically sourced therapeutic-grade essential oils, we just can’t get enough of this sensual mix of vanilla, rose absolute, jasmine and orange blossom, blended with hints of patchouli and geranium bourbon. Handcrafted in small batches in New York City, it leaves us feeling alert and empowered in a calm, cool and collected sort of way. Given that orange blossom oil is known to refresh, increase inspiration and relax the nervous system and vanilla has been used for centuries to enhance cognitive ability, this effect it makes sense.
Lotus Wei Joy Juice Perfume (spray)
Katie Hess, the founder of this one-of-a-kind line, traveled the world in search of a way to help people experience a greater sense of happiness and wellbeing. On her journey, she discovered flower essences. Amazed at how quickly and effectively they worked through clients’ acupuncture meridians to revitalize and bring balance, she’s been using them ever since.
Our “go to” for when we’re feeling anxious, stressed or a little bit down, her “Joy Juice” concoction helps lighten our mood and get us back on track. Sweet Orange, Blood Orange and Rosewood essential oils contain antidepressant and aphrodisiac properties and create a pleasant, citrusy scent. The perfume’s hand-collected flower essences (including Pink Spirea, Birdsfoot Lotus and Chocolate Flower) help to calm, fill the heart with happiness and balance the chakras. Feel free to spray on body, hair, pillows … even in your home and around kids.
Dedicated to creating sustainable health and beauty care using the highest quality ingredients, Roots Rose Radish was founded on the premise that people shouldn’t sacrifice their bodies for beauty. Each unique formula is created by Christian Toscano – an avid cultivator, wildcrafter and herbalist – out of the company’s headquarters in Los Angeles.
We love this scent because it’s a little different than most. Designed for “salt of the earth people,” we apply it on days when we’re overwhelmed by the chaos and fast pace of urban living, and want to feel grounded. Its rich resin base of frankincense and patchouli reminds us of the forest and helps to heighten our sense of spiritual connection. The perfect accompaniment, rose otto oil is considered the premier oil for allowing heart centered contact and outlook for good reason.
