Puredistance

I felt like the luckiest gal in the world when I found out that I had won in a random drawing a sample of Puredistance perfume.

They asked the winners thoughts about the perfume in a survey.

Short and sweet I wrote this:

I think Puredistance is an extremely sensual and confident perfume. The notes whisper an epic love poem exclusively composed for the wearer.  It's fragrance challenges you to be as beautiful. 
Intimate reaction aside, when I first sampled Puredistance it's top notes seem to play hide and seek.  I usually do not enjoy a headier and powdery heart but was hypnotized how it wore on me.   With all the reviews touting the freshness of the top notes it made me wonder if I had received the same perfume.
It's staying power is incredible.  Days after wearing it I want to cuddle up to my clothing that had been adorned with it's scent.
Puredistance makes you feel embellished but perhaps also a shade insecure of it's grandeur.

Soap sets

My friend Rachel enjoys citrus and cucumber. I gave the citrus a flowery twist with the neroli.
Lemon and lime didn't seem to mare as well (gave it a cleaning product smell)with the grapefruit so I left it out though she also likes lemon and lime. L cuba may have worked but it is deadly strong.

I wanted to make other soaps that the men might enjoy as well hence the Patchouli and Frankincense .
The cucumber was the only soap I used a perfume base as it is near impossible to find a natural oil.

 These are made with an oatmeal soap base.

1. neroli, grapefruit, mandarin

2. pachouli, geranium, cinnamon

3. Cucumber

4. frankincense, black pepper, cardamom , nutmeg
