Hello, my darlings! I’m happy to announce that I’m doing my first-ever giveaway, and it’s a super cool one! I’m giving away a Grass Roots Perfumery sample set of seven perfumes AND a bath salts sample!
I discovered Grass Roots Perfumery on through VeganCuts , where I discover a lot of amazing vegan products that I’ve never heard of before. I’m sensitive to chemicals in perfumes, so I’ve been trying to stop wearing them (even though I love my Burberry Classic so much!!!) but I still want to smell good and girly, you know? So, when I read that Grass Roots Perfumery made from certified organic natural essences, I was excited to try them out.
Grasse Roots Perfumery
For a bit of background: Grasse Roots Perfumery is named after Grasse, France, an area dubbed by Catherine de Medici as the ideal location for the production of floral essences. Claire Lautier, the owner, has family roots in the south of France close to Grasse and believes that the most beautiful perfumes are completely natural. She uses rare botanicals and certified organic essences (when possible) to create her perfumes.
Grasse Roots Perfume Review
I loved the samples Claire sent to me, the Janus in particular. One reviewer on her site described it as “…walking in endless woods with a hint of sunlight peering through the leaves. It’s unique and yet so warm and comforting, like the feeling you get snuggling up to a basket of tiny bunnies”, and I couldn’t agree more. I’m in love with the Janus, I want it to be my new signature scent and I can’t wait to order the biggest bottle of it that Claire offers. The Geisha scent is a floral bomb, plummeting you into a fresh cut flower extravaganza. I love the Geisha blended with the Blood Orange, it achieves the perfect balance of citrus with floral.
My biggest concern with natural perfumes is that they don’t last, but I found the Grasse Roots perfume oils to have a decent longevity. I think about four hours, especially when I rubbed some drops into my hair. For something that doesn’t have any nasty chemicals and doesn’t make me sick, having to only reapply once a day is fine by me. I tend to like softer/subtler scents anyway, so even my beloved Burberry would need a touch up throughout the day.
