Pink MahogHany Fragrances


Pink MahogHany Fragrance is a niche luxury perfume line that’s phthalate-free for sensitive noses. Each batch is handmade in small batches with the best ingredients.

The Pink MahogHany line currently consists of 4 fragrances. Here’s what perfumista and creator, Chavalia, says about her beautiful works of art.

Sunrise – For the sassy woman who’s so over traditional citrus orange scents. Fresh. Invigorating. Soft. Feminine. Sultry. Warm.

Ethereal Transluscence – With aromatic notes of rosemary and crisp lemon, this shared fragrance is powerful enough for a guy but not so overwhelming that a woman with style can’t pull off comfortably.

SignaTure – Signature shared fragrance with hints of mint, citruses and “green” notes

French Cuffs – For the dapper man who fancies himself a trip to France – in a bottle. Think fedora and cuff-links. For the man with class, style and has somewhere important to be. Smoky and sweet – yet dry, woody and handsome.

Here’s my thoughts after testing each scent a few times.

Sunrise – starts as a sharp and pungent citrus that’s also somewhat green smelling. Warms to a resinous sweet and fruity scent that strikes me as calming and soothing. This is my favorite fragrance of the bunch, and the one that smells most feminine to me.

Ethereal Translucence – opens herbal and zesty, with a hint of woods. This becomes a fuzzy soft skin scent, and I get a hint of lavender or something herbal. After dry down this scent becomes cedary and warm. I LOVE this for hubby!

SignaTure – wet, it gives off a blast of mint and green and woody. The scent remains strong and has the best throw off the four scents. I like this, but it feels a bit masculine for my taste.

French Cuffs – This is definitely a masculine scent in my opinion. I get a strong dirt (dry soil almost) note, which sweetens quickly into a scent that’s watery and smooth. This is a great scent on my hubby!

I love trying unique niche fragrances, because I always am able to find something new and different. It’s a completely different experience than department store fragrances. If you are sensitive to fragrance, and want to try something unique and natural, I would highly recommend ordering some samples from Pink MahogHany! You can find them on Facebook and Twitter.

Pure Natural Diva, Elegant Organic and Botanical Perfumes

Founder of Pure Natural Diva, Tania Ruben has made it her mission to craft a luxurious alternative to chemical fragrances. She offers an elegant organic perfume alternative to lab created fragrances, using only botanical ingredients. PND botanical perfumes are hand crafted in micro batches. Tania relies only on naturally sourced ingredients such as essential oils, absolutes, tinctures and minerals. PND products are perfect for the 30-40% of Americans that are allergic to mainstream scents. The majority are able to enjoy Tania’s perfumes without any adverse reactions.

 The Pure Natural Diva Scents

The Pure Natural Diva line of organic perfumes consists of 4 scents, Pure, Natural, Diva, and Elixir.

Pure is sensually uplifting, like sunny day in a mixed field of lemongrass and Lavender. Notes include uplifting cassie, soothing chamomile, lemon, lime and an Egyptian neroli.
Natural is fresh and inviting: Imagine a picnic in a rose-bordered citrus grove. Notes include a hint of clary sage, exalting pink grapefruit, Moroccan rose, and soothing ylang ylang.
Diva is full of soul—sultry and mysterious. Notes include natural musk derived from Ambrette, sinfully smooth New Caledonian Sandalwood, blended together in a lusciously robust Vanilla.
Elixir wakens the senses, like a lingering morning with an ocean view. Notes include aphrodisiacal vanilla, a hint of oakmoss, exquisite osmanthus, married with rejuvenating pink grapefruit and red mandarin.

I love each scent, and think Pure Natural Diva offers a scent for every occasion. My favorites, are Diva which smells deliciously divine, a spicy and rich vanilla scent that feels slightly gourmand. Elixir is somehow soothing and enlightening at the same time. It’s scent is zesty and fresh, juicy and bright. A perfect scent for spring!!

As far as wear time, Diva lasts the longest on my skin, as I am able to smell it all day without a retouch. Elixir and Natural follow, lasting a solid 6 hours. Pure starts out robust, but settles into a soft and barely there calming scent.

Pure, Natural and Diva are available in a 5ml to go spray for $40 or $100 for a 50ml signature bottle.  Elixir is $45 for 5ml and $150 for the 50ml bottle. Alternatively, you can purchase sample vials of the four scents for $16.

Pure Natural Diva also offers soap, body and room spray, organic hand and body wash, organic lotion, Whipped organic body butter, bath soak and Polished organic sugar scrub. I have been using the Whipped Body Butter, scented with Diva. I can’t even possibly begin to relate how amazing this coconut oil and shea butter cream is through words. I wish you could smell it! If you love a rich body butter, but don’t like the heaviness, you will LOVE this! It’s lightweight and fast absorbing but it’s a super nourishing cream!

The Whipped Body Butters are available in all four PND scents, and are vegan and cruelty free. A four oz glass jar is $30, with the exception of Elixir being $35. I can’t recommend Pure Natural Diva enough, whether you are looking for a less chemical/toxic scent or if you just love to try fragrances of all kinds. If you are looking for a unique and super special pampering Mother’s Day gift, consider a few goodies from Pure Natural Diva!

Review and Rave – Lisa Hoffman Beauty

I recently had the pleasure of receiving some samples from
Lisa Hoffman Beauty

First and foremost, I have to rave about the customer service! I truly think
it’s so important to have great customer service! I dealt with Amy, who was
professional, friendly and very quick to respond. She sent me some samples to test
right away.

My favorite is Tuscan Fig. The description from the Lisa Hoffman Beauty website:

Surrounded by vanilla bean, honeysuckle, coconut wood, and gardenia, Tuscan Fig entices you with its warm essence. Like your own secret treasure, this fragrance transports you to the most enchanting valleys, vineyards, and fruit groves of Tuscany.

Other scents offered are; Japanese Agarwood, Madagascar Orchid (my second fave!),
Tunisian Neroli, and French Clary Sage.

The website offers a variety of perfume, body lotions and wash, candles and
absolutely gorgeous and unique fragrance jewlery.
