When I was 7 years old, I was given a well-known seasonal catalog to pick out a Christmas gift for my sister and for myself. I selected a perfume package for blending your own scents. When the Christmas morning arrived in England, my home perfume laboratory waiting for me, I was pretty sure I would be able to make the world-class famous scents .. or at least neighbors-recognized perfume scents that they would come to beg me to be their friends..
Well, looking back, that was the beginning.. As a teenager, I eager to try new scents. I still remember with great pleasure a scent called Gardenia by COCO Chanel. As I grew older, I settled on the idea of starting a business concentrating on scents. I personally believe that fragrance does enhance your living space and the person ‘you.’
Of all our senses, smell brings back, triggering our oldest memories. Take an example, the smell of strawberry cake and coffee may take you back to a fun time you had in one of the fancy cafes in London, or in Tokyo. The scent of orange or lavender may remind you of your father, talking to you about his fiancé whom he was madly in love with when he was young – your mother. Using the smell which brings back nice thoughts for you, you may be able to re-create them within your own sensational environment. Would you love that..?
As I am writing this, I decided to add to this post one simple facial splash that anyone could create for herself or himself…(believe me, there are many men who do what we women want to do.) It’s called my version of Neroli and Orange Splash. Neroli in the form of essential oil is very expensive, while Orange essential oil is distilled from orange peels, Neroli is distilled only from flowers of oranges.
