scent from heaven…

I love fragrances! I love perfume, I love soap and detergent with scents, I adore scented candles…I even love a certain floor cleaner that rhymes with “sniffer”. However, as I mentioned in an earlier post this week, as an online retailer, it’s a tough sell ’cause scent is very subjective and you just can’t sniff the computer screen. That doesn’t mean I can’t recommend some of my favorite scents for you to check out locally, if you can find them.

In the home fragrance category, I’d have to recommend these three: Fruits & Passion, Lollia and Beautea.


Spray this fresh scent in your kitchen…blissful! My favorite is the “Coriander & Olive Tree”, but they carry a range of gorgeous scents. They also have wonderful body lotions, soaps and home cleaning products. Click on the image to go to their website.

I don’t know how they do it, but Lollia makes the most amazing candles, soaps and perfumes. My absolute favorite is “1,000 Flowers”. Don’t go through life without smelling some Lollia. Even when the candle isn’t lit, the scent wafts my way when I’m sitting near it. Love, love, love it!

I carried this line of products, but I’m thinking of discontinuing it ’cause it’s a hard sell if people can’t actually smell it (I only carry the body lotion right now). I really love the line, so if it’s available locally, definitely check it out–particularly the candles!!!! They’re organic soy and the scents combine exotic floral and tea blends.

In the perfume category, I’ve got two favorites: Chanel’s Coco and Jo Malone’s Lime Basil Mandarin.

So there are my favorite picks. What do you like? Any recommendations that I should try?

  2. Hi Katherine…how’s the blog coming along? Can’t wait to see it. I’ll definitely check out the Editions De Parfums. Any excuse and I’ll take it to go to Holt’s

  3. Perfume: Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir right now is my fav, I sometimes mix with orange blossom. I also have Lotus Blossum…. I am going to be returning the nectarine – on me, by the afternoon it has a weird scent. Not re-acting very well with me. Another fav of mine is Larua Mercier Eau De Lune.

    Cleaning products: Really anything with lavender – Method and Meyers

    So happy to have found your blog!

    • Hi Paula…I’m so glad you found the blog too! I’m going to hit Nordstrom’s in Seattle next weekend and do some sniffing–I’ll look for the ones you recommend!!! Thanks for the tips.
