News from the Nose: Mother's Day Specials and More!

Dear Fragrant Friends,

In this newsletter:

Gigi: Grand Gardenia sans the Drama

Gigi is the newest adition to the Ayala Moriel's Language of Flowers
soliflore collection. It is a gardenia soliflore that is lighthearted and at
the same time voluptuous. The rare smoothness of Mysore sandalwood lays the
foundation for a gardenia illusion - where sambac, jonquille, tuberose,
kewda and cardamom dance in unity to create the warm, creamy-spicy
sensuality of white petals.

Top notes: Kewda, Cardamom, Rosewod, Yellow Mandarin
Heart notes: Jasmine Sambac, Jonquille, Tuberose
Base notes: Mysore Sandalwood, Vanilla, Myrrh

Perfume Oils - New Sizes and new Fragrances!!!

Due to the popular demand for alcohol-free and oil based perfumes, we are
now offering our entire line (except for 3 scents) in a jojoba oil base.
Resembling the skin's natural sebum, jojoba is an excellent solution if you
have a dry skin: it will help prolong the scent's life on the skin and
linger longer. This is also a more concentrated form of perfume, with 30%
parfum essence, making it rich, soft and luxurious.
Now available in two sizes - a frosted 10ml roll-on bottle, and a cute 5ml purse roll-on that can be sneaked into one's pocket when
traveling far or near, for only $65.
