It’s been said that a woman should find her go-to perfume by the time she’s 30 and then wear it for the rest of her life. That’s a romantic notion, sure, but if you ask us, there’s something to be said about having a wardrobe of fragrances. A spritz of perfume is the easiest way to instantly enhance how you’re feeling that day — especially since fragrance is so closely tied to feelings and moods. Studies have shown that fragrance is the easiest way to evoke certain memories or feeling — so having a specific perfume for certain events can make those experiences so much richer.
In the summer, we love a fruity, sweet scent to match the weather, while spring tends to evoke a crisper, cleaner smell. We switch out our clothing every season. For us, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t switch out your perfume for different seasons or occasions, either. You wouldn’t wear your shorts in December. So why wear your fruity perfume in November?
And now that the weather is turning cooler, and we are pulling on our cozy sweaters and comfortable coats, the mood calls for a more decadent fragrance. That’s why we created Velvet — a fragrance inspired by the sensuous touch of velvet. Spritzing this perfume on is like curling up into a gorgeously soft velvet sweater, which sounds like the perfect pairing for those crisp autumn evenings.
Created in partnership with a prestigious fragrance house, Velvet is a heady combination of sumptuous scents that will evoke the cozy feelings of fall and winter. Fruits, florals, vetiver, saffron, and velvet patchouli mingle together to create a scent you’ll want to wear in the chillier temperatures. “In the creation of this fragrance, I was very inspired by the luxurious softness of velvet, and the way the fabric shines in the light,” says perfumer Gabriela Chelariu. “I drew inspiration from the emotion of a first kiss — at once exhilarating and delicate. My idea was to bring to the forefront a new expression of sensuality by blending decadent and premium ingredients.”
Those decadent and premium ingredients are on full display in Velvet. A fruity top note of fig gives way to a mid note of rose, which Chelariu said she added for a luxurious indulgence that keeps you coming back. The base note, a velvet patchouli, balances out the sweet scents of fruits and florals, creating a balanced scent that is incredibly decadent, while also being seriously sensuous.
We created Velvet with the sophisticated woman in mind, and wanted to give that woman the opportunity to experience luxury at an affordable price. At $30, Velvet costs much less than a typical department store perfume — but smells just as decadent.
And we’ve made it so that your fragrance wardrobe doesn’t just have to stop at perfume. Velvet is also available in a body wash and body lotion, offering you the opportunity to layer your scents the same way you’d layer your clothing. Start with the Velvet Pearl Body Wash, then moisturize with the silky smooth Velvet Body Lotion, and finish with a spritz of your perfume. That ensures the warming scent of Velvet will stay with you all day long — even when the temperatures dip.
Crisp, cold nights and chilly autumn and winter days call for an extra-special fragrance, which is why Velvet is a perfect addition to your cool-weather wardrobe. Wear it on those special fall or winter occasions — or whenever you want to get into the autumnal and festive mood. You already have your go-to fall and winter makeup shades. Why not add a go-to fall and winter fragrance to the mix?
