I love perfumes; I love the way a certain scent can transform the way you feel. It can lift your spirits, make you feel happy and can make you feel sexy and alive. I know a lot of girls love feeling beautiful in a delicious scent. Women love knowing that when they walk down the street, people are going to say “wow, she smells wonderful.” I want to help you find a natural organic perfume that is free of toxins and as unique as you are, while embracing your individuality. I would like to introduce to you one of my favorite organic perfume companies— Fragonard Perfumery—located in France. It is one of the oldest perfumeries and one of the world’s foremost contemporary fragrance composer companies, offering unique scents for a new generation. You can’t get more organic than Fragonard; they grow all their own flowers for their perfumes in Grasse, near the Mediterranean sea, where the flowers are so fragrant they couldn’t possibly, nor would they dare add synthetic chemicals to them, as that would ruin the exceptional aroma they already have. Why Natural Perfumes? • Whatever you put on your skin goes into your body. • Synthetic perfumes “outgas” petrochemicals and harm people sensitive to them. • Fragrance chemicals are an environmental danger. The production, usage and disposal of them hurts us and the planet. • The fragrance industry uses carcinogenic, neorotoxic, and chemical waste products derived from petroleum to make the scents that surround us every day. You then inhale these chemicals and apply them to your skin! Fragrances are the new second-hand smoke. • Natural perfumes enhance your body’s own unique natural scent; synthetic fragrances cover it up. • Natural aromas invoke deep emotional responses, your nose can tell synthetic from real, just like your feet can tell Astro Turf from real grass. • You will love to know when wearing an organic fragrance it will not irritate other people. Many modern perfumes are chemical soups wrapped in fancy packaging and marketed with million dollar ad campaigns. Natural perfumes utilize natural plant extracts and essences, essential oils, resins, woods, flowers and spices. They are luxurious and worth discovering and wearing. Natural perfumes dissipate more quickly than synthetics (within a few hours), because they lack toxic scent-fixatives, but they can be reapplied to your liking. The beautiful Organic Fragonard Perfume line will arrive at The Rouge Cosmetics in August. We are one of the first boutiques on the West Coast to carry this fine line of organic perfumes. Come visit us to discover how utterly divine organic perfumes are and how it will uplift the senses, mind and ground the body. There is something for everyone—feminine, sophisticated or modern— with many scents to choose from, in addition to new fragrances coming in every few months. Find out what the locals in France have been enjoying for years with this modern, eco-friendly perfume company, offering fine scents and organic body products. You will positively discover a new you, for sure.
