Because of my smell problem, I can't wear perfumes. But even though they induce a strange sensory reaction for me, that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the beautiful aromas of flowers, herbs, spices and such.
Thus, you can imagine my overjoyed reaction at discovering Twinkle Apothecary's homemade, essential oil based natural perfume blends. My friend Amy Jo Garner recommended them, and upon visiting their Facebook page I immediately placed my order for what I felt was a very reasonably priced roll-on vial of what they have aptly named "Luscious."
Well, let me tell you, this non-chemical wearer was overjoyed at the deliciousness of this perfectly blended scent. Top notes of jasmine and ginger with enduring vanilla for depth and complexity, and vetiver as the base, make this a subtle, warm, and intoxicating scent to wear for an evening out, or really, any time at all.
I have rubbed it on my pulse points for the second time today, and am delightedly sniffing myself up as I type this. Because there are no chemicals to add that cling that most perfumes have, you should carry some around with you for reapplication as necessary. In addition to perfumes, Twinkle Apothecary offers things like body butter, shampoo, deodorant, bath oils and more.
It's also worth mentioning that their products are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.
Mostly, what I love about this and other essential oil blends is that they tend to respect the boundaries of personal space. Meaning, if I swish by you in a crowded lobby, you might get the slightest whiff of jasmine and vanilla that dissipates quickly on the air. But my personal scent is not going to hover and cling and impart its odor in an obtrusive manner, should someone else fail to appreciate these scents as I do.
Basically, as a chemical-smell avoider who loves essential oils and aromatherapy, my review of Twinkle Apothecary is that they're awesome. If you know of a crunchy, earthy gal like me, their naturally scented products would make a welcome stocking stuffer. I plan to order more from them for certain!
