Fragrance Profile: Vanilla

 

Vanilla, inci name Vanilla Planifolia, is found primarily in Mexico but can also be found in places like Madagascar, Indonesia and the southwestern Indian Ocean. Vanilla is a dark, resinous substance extracted from vanilla bean that is best known for it’s versatility in sweets, desserts, and perfume. In addition to being tasty it is also used as a remarkably versatile perfume ingredient. It’s distinctly sweet, warm, soothing and creamy aroma is well liked and has some very good health benefits too.

Afrodisiac: Vanilla stimulates hormones that bring about sexual arousal and desire. It has an effect on erectile dysfunction, frigidity and loss of libido.

Antioxidant: A powerful antioxidant all rounder, Vanilla protects the body from wear and tear and infections.

Antidepressant: Works well to combat the feelings of stress and anxiety and uplift.

Relaxing: Vanilla Essential Oil provides a calming influence on the brain and relief from feelings of anxiety, stress and restlessness.

Vanilla is used frequently in perfumery to add sweetness and warmth to perfume creations. It blends well with almost all florals, particularly Jasmine and works well with woods and citrus oils also.

The Secret Scent Societe’s Ylang Ylang and Vanilla Aromatherapy Soy Candle embodies all that is great about Vanilla: It’s effortless ability to provide a sultry, smooth sweetness, and blend with the exotic flower Ylang Ylang to create a delicate and feminine ambience.

Pomp & Circumstance the show stealer!

Pomp & Circumstance the show stealer!

Hi!

I hope you had a great Bank Holiday weekend. The weather certainly could have been better!
I’m desperate for some sun and am counting down the days until I go to Las Vegas. Just under a week to go now!

Last week I had my showcase at Publicis in Central London. They invited me down to use there space to sell and promote my products to there staff. I was only there over the lunchtime period so considering I was only there for a mere 2 hours it went very well! I had alot of very good feedback, the men in particular seemed impressed with my products – it’s usually very hard to impress men with fragrant products but they asked alot of questions and complimented my packaging so I was quite flattered. Pomp & Circumstance, my Limited Edition Bulgarian Rose & Jasmine Soy Candle stole the show. It has such a depth and character to it, and it is almost impossible to pick out the individual notes as it has such complexity. Pomp & Circumstance is a very luxurious fragrance. It’s a shame I can’t upgrade this candle to part of my standard range, but my supplier of Bulgarian Rose doesn’t always have it so it has to remain Limited Edition for now. Nonetheless, Cloud Nine remained a firm favourite, I love playing the game with my clients of “guess the fragrance”, and there was one guy in particular who was brilliant at it! He could recognise some of the components, which is quite hard to do as I usually have quite a few notes and accords in my fragrances. Creme’ De La Creme’, Ambrosial Peach and Indian Mistress of the Night still seem to be a winner with both sexes. I was told that The Caspian Sea was very true to the brief: A subtle, fresh, light, aquatic scent. Lavender, With Love, I knew would be a favourite as it’s a white candle and women love Lavender!
Anniversary, the candle and the reed diffuser was hands down the most sought after fragrance of all. I anticipated that it might be so that was handy.

Publicis do regular marketing events like this at there offices for small creative businesses like mine, so hopefully I’ll get invited back in the future. I am planning to introduce a few new products to my range like body cream’s and souffle’s, salt and sugar scrubs, perfumes, bath oils and I may have an attempt at making Cold Process Soap. It’s a little more technical then M&P soap which I already make, and it takes longer to cure. I’m not so certain I have the patience to wait but we’ll see! ūüôā

New Solid Lotion Bars!

New Solid Lotion Bars!

Solid Lotion Bar 6
I’m¬†particularly excited about this new creation because it’s something that I’ve been wanting to¬†make for¬†awhile. I’ve¬†tried out¬†a few different variations¬†and I’ve finally found one that has the kind of consistency I was looking for!

Solid Lotion is made with a combination of luxury butters, oils and waxes and then set to form a solid bar. They can be made scented or unscented (of course if I’m making them then they¬†will always be scented!;) and¬†come¬†in solid form so that they can just be picked up and used as a moisturiser for the hands, feet and body. They are primarily made up of natural butters¬†which¬†do absolute wonders for the skin and leave the skin soft and supple, without being sticky or greasy.

They do need to be kept away from direct sunlight as they have a tendancy to melt or sweat if left exposed in humid temperatures.

My new Fleur De Lis solid lotion bars have been made with the finest butters, beeswax, sweet almond oil or argan oil and essential oils. They¬†are available¬†in a choice of 2 beautiful fragrances: Vanilla & Ylang Ylang¬†or Rose Absolute and Lavender and come in a white heart shaped tin that is as small as a Vaseline tin so can be kept on your person, in your handbag or even in your clutchbag for when you’re out on the town and your skin¬†need a little moisturising (genius!)
