Audacious!


OK, I cannot wait anymore!  I have to tell you all about my brand new perfume called "Audacious".  Why that name?  Well, because I think it says that whoever wears this wants to be noticed, has a little attitude and is confident.  This is my first successful (if I do say so myself) attempt at creating a "Floriental" perfume (a combination of Floral and Oriental categories); notes of Pink Lotus Absolute and Tuberose were my inspirations and I added notes like Cassia and Linden Blossom as a sweet, yet spicy base.  I added very light Top notes that would only bring out the heart and base, not overpower; like Petitgrain, lemon and Coriander.  This is a sexy perfume that can be worn during the day as a lovely Summer Blend reminding you of the blossoming flowers of Spring and Summer and also at night with it's spice and sweet base.  I had one of my best Etsy customers sample this blend and give me feedback.  Here is what she says about "Audacious":

"When I think of floral perfumes I think of the stale perfume the old ladies wear at the grocery store. When I put Audacious on, it is indeed a wonderful blend of floral/spicy/sweet. They are all equally balanced, not overpowering one another. First you smell floral mixed with sweet...and then the afternotes are a nice spice. This is definitely a perfume you'd take with you to wear all evening out. Perfect for office use too."

It took me a while before I really fell in love with this blend myself.  The hard thing about creating blends is that sometimes you won't love it as much as others will and vice versa, but I try very hard to only create blends that I myself would wear. Sometimes that means creating blends I think would be liked by others and then putting my own twist on them making them blends I would wear. I think I have to do it this way or my heart is not in it. Anyway, about 4 weeks into it, after letting it sit, I started to see what the blend could be.  As it "married" it became so lovely and I couldn't help but love it.  It just makes me feel sassy!

So, I will be listing this in my shop over the next day or so.  This is a pretty exquisite perfume and will be a tad pricier than my other blends, but I think that you will adore it.  I am also working on a musk/gourmand blend now hoping to get that ready for middle/end of summer release.

I have such respect for those who can create scents. I'm pretty certain I would end up with skunk if I tried.
