During all of my travels over the years with Lillians from the East Coast to the West Coast, I have found these certain little secret places that carry products not found in the Midwest. And they have changed my life. Gals, stop spending boo-coo bucks on women’s fragrances. Start investing in oils! OMG (I say that a lot) the oils are one-fourth the cost of great fragrances and last just as long. And here is the real kicker…..they contain ZERO alcohol or water. (hello!!!) Here is your proof: Go (right now!) and read the label on your expensive bottle of fragrance. Water?? Alcohol?? Ripped off?? You got it!
I promised myself that I would never share this secret, but changing women’s lives is what I do, so here goes! I have attached the photo of what is in my handbag, in every bathroom at home, and in my car. It is everywhere I am – at all times! You never know when you need just a “roll.” I wear Patchouli and no matter where I go, I get asked by women AND men….”what are you wearing?” When I tell them it is patchouli oil, they are intrigued. One woman said, “hey that is what the hippies wore!” It sure is! But let’s fast forward to 2012.
Patchouli scents have come a long way since then and so have the blends of real oils. The brand of my patchouli is by Lakshmi. (his most AWESOME brand ever!) For example, to achieve notes of “musk” in their oils, they do not use real musk, as it comes from animals and they use ZERO animal products. I have attached the photo of my patchouli. It is this compact roll-on that lasts for months and months. I could sell these things out of my handbag because women are CRAZY about how it smells. You better sit now – it’s time to reveal the price. $28.00!! RING THE BELLS!!! Who does that?
In trade for my little secret, you have to promise to buy it directly from Scent Elate. Scent Elate is a specialty boutique located in the heart of New York City, Mid Town Manhattan. The owners name is Mo. When I first went inside, he looked at me as I was laughing hysterically with my sister about something and he said, “you need to wear patchouli!” It is the goddess of abundance and embodies love, grace and charm! Mo had me pegged the moment I met him and I have bought my patchouli from him for almost seven years. It is the best known secret on the “fragrance” planet!
