To Be Tantalizing

I love the idea of what perfume represents. The juxtaposed combinations of earth’s natural gems formulating the perfect elixir to the skin. The science behind combinations of citrus, fleurs, balsam, and oils interacting with one’s body chemistry to evoke just that...a spark from those who stroll by.

Fragrance is your escape to display pure attitude without equivocal conversation, not just an air of confidence, but carte blanche to be the pouty, flirty, or saucy vixen until it’s scent fades...and the magical spell is broken. A signature potion can slow the world’s turn and draw others into your intimate space. How do you define it? By season, mood, activity, seduction? Each pulsing heartbeat sends a surge into the atmosphere of those within the depths of your reach.

“Under her reign, perfume ruled Egypt. Banquet halls were perfumed. Sweets were perfumed. Baths were perfumed. Incense smoke filled the streets. And Cleopatra had the sails of her barge soaked with perfume when setting off to seduce Mark Antony.” -Encyclopedia of the Exquisite by Jessica Kerwin Jenkins

What signature scent do you display on your vanity?
In search of inspiration, journey to the isle of Capri to create your own concoction at Carthusia.

That’s right ladies, with St. Valentine’s on his way; spritz a little extra liquid allure.

Happy Valentine’s Day
