CONGRATS TO BREANNE T!
To me, perfume is the finishing touch of getting ready, the icing on the cake, the period at the end of the sentence. I love deciding which scent from my collection I'll wear each day and I love finding new scents. The only downside I have with my perfumes is that they seem to wear off around the middle of the day. A trick I learned years ago was to not spray perfume on dry skin. Instead, massage in a dab of lotion and then spray the perfume where you've rubbed in the lotion. The scent sticks around much longer!
The wonderful people at Cream Perfume Company have figured out a way to skip that extra step! Their perfume is already in the cream form so you just swipe it on to your "hot spots" and away you go! But the upsides to their product over others doesn't stop there, their cream perfumes were developed as a commercially more affordable and healthier alternative to predominantly high-priced fragrances that are packaged in elaborate, environmentally unfriendly materials and incorporate ethanol, petroleum carriers and other undesirable fillers.
By eliminating the bulk of ethanol and water, they use significantly less expensive, alternative and eco-friendly container materials such as wood, and incorporate natural carriers like beeswax and sweet almond oil as was the original practice in perfumery for many thousands of years. Their cream perfumes represent unusual, simple and elegant delivery of world-class French fragrances. They are travel-friendly, longer-lasting, lightly moisturizing and can be purchased at a great price.
The Cream Perfume Company's body lotions contain pure and naturally derived oils and extracts from nature combined with their premium French fragrance oils to combat dehydrated, sore, inflamed and damaged skin.
Their Natural Line of lotions cater to sensitive skin and only use 100% certified organic essential oils while their Spa Line is a thicker luxurious lotion well suited for massages and everyday wear. Their lotions are uniquely fragrant, sooth your skin, delight your senses and layer well with their cream perfumes.
They are proud members of the Natural Products Association and always contribute a minimum of 10% of their profits to families in need.
I was sent over the Apricot Cream Perfume, the Ylang Ylang Cream Perfume & the Spa Line Mandarin Body Lotion 8oz Tube.
I love the little wooden pots they come in, applying the cream perfume is easy, just swirl your finger over the creme to help melt it and then apply where you would normally spray perfume. You always want to apply perfume to your pulse spots, namely, the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, in the cleavage, behind knees, and the inner elbows. As you wear your perfume throughout the day, it will react with your body heat and continue to emit scent.
With this perfume being cream, it's much easier to get to many of those pulse spots without over spraying. I was surprised with how much I enjoyed the apricot scent, I thought it would be my least favorite. But it's such an interesting and soft aroma that it quickly moved to one of my favorite perfumes!
The lotion had me a bit worried, my skin is super sensitive and I have to watch how it reacts to soaps and lotions before I let it start rotating in my collection. So I tried out a spot on my arm and waited 24 hours for a rash. 24 hours later, all clear! It smells wonderful, it's not overpowering at all and could easily be used instead of perfume for a subtle fragrance all day!
Check out their site to buy your own or browse for great gift ideas! These last forever and are perfect to throw in a travel bag without worry of breaking the traditional glass bottle most perfumes come in.
And, lucky for my readers, the Cream Perfume Company has offered one reader their choice of one current item off their site! Great as a treat for you or something to stock away for the upcoming holidays!
