I often forget to wear perfume, but when I remember, someone always compliments me. I wonder if this means I smell exceptionally bad on all the days I forget to put it on? All that said, I jumped at the opportunity to review my friend’s perfume line as a chance to get some free perfume (but this may be more of a gift for everyone else standing around me).
My friends JK and Kyle Delapp started The Rising Phoenix Perfumery in 2011 with a focus on creating perfume from natural products. Remember my #AllNaturalStyleSecrets post about Seventh Generation firming serum? I love finding natural products and sharing them with my readers! I was sent these sampes: Preda, Green Velvet, More Beauty Than Beast, Phoenix Fougere and Poisoned Fig.
I favored Preda the most for its softer aroma which is based in patchouli, and Green Velvet is my second choice for its woody and earthiness.
All the perfumes have an organic feel and scent, which is perfect for an inner hippie like myself. They even offer sample sizes if you don’t want to invest in the full-sized bottles!
