Happy Anniversary!

Posted on June 06, 2017 by Jessica Reynolds

Greetings Vetiver Fans!

Its been another wonderful year together! Vetiver is now 6 years old! It seems like yesterday when I started working with Angie. From local perfume parties to a full online business we sure have grown, and we have each of you to thank for that. So this month we are offering free shipping on all orders placed in the USA. So if you've been excited to try some new scents, then now is the perfect time!

Speaking of new scents, we received some great suggestions from our fans on our facebook page about what notes to add next to our collection. Congrats to Judy Wadsworth and Aayusha Shah, the winners of $10 gift cards for our Win it Wednesday giveaway!

I'm also excited to announce we have a live chat feature. During business hours we are available to chat with us, and if it is after hours you can send us an email instead. So if you are ever visiting our site and have a question, then please feel free to drop us a line!

 


Perfume Wearing Tips

Now that you've made your very own scent here are some tips to make sure you slay your new fragrance!

1. When to apply your perfume?
          Perfume is best applied to clean, moisturized skin. So instead or spritzing on your outfit, give your self an aromatic shower before you dress! Make sure your skin is moisturized so your natural oils can help carry the perfume with you all day long.

2. Where to apply your perfume?

         Ladies and gents around the world have applied perfume to their pulse points for centuries. The secret is because heat activates perfume  and the places on your skin where you can feel your pulse are thinner and the warmth of your blood can help stimulate your scent. Some examples are: behind your ear, the bottom of your throat, on your wrist, inside your elbow and even behind your knee!

3. Don't overdo your scent!
          Its easy to go overboard on your scent! We've all had that one friend or family member who bathes in cologne or perfume and is a bit off putting. The more we wear a fragrance the more accustomed we become to its scent and it will seem as if our fragrance isn't as strong as before. So when applying your scent get to know the amount that is right for you and stick with it. It can also help to switch up your scents so your senses don't get bored!

4. Store your perfume correctly.
          Perfume is best stored in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. There is no need to refrigerate your fragrance, but doing that certainly doesn't hurt. The most important factor is to keep your perfume out of UV Rays as they break down your fragrance faster. An airtight container is also a must, especially for alcohol based perfumes as oxygen will cause your fragrance to break down faster and evaporate.

5. Try layering your scents!
          Experiment with your fragrance combinations to come up with new and exciting combinations! We have a Perfumer's Palette Kit that has 12 great scents you can roll on to create a new scent everyday. Or you can purchase our Single Note Perfumes and layer them also!

Scent Families

We have lots of different scent families at Vetiver, and a sampler to match each! I'd like to show you the differences so you can decide for yourself which oils are best for you! You can always browse for a specific family by using the drop down menu from "Perfume Ingredients" and search for "Shop by" then selecting "Scent"!

Efflorescent / Floral

  Evoking true floral scents, efflorescent oils represent a slightly feminine and highly traditional component of the perfumer's table. Try our Efflorescent Sampler!
_______________________________________________________________

Fruitaceous / Fruity

  Fruitaceous scents bring the cool freshness of fruit to the perfumery. Each provides a touch of subtle sweetness to the perfumer's formulations. Try ourFruitaceous Sampler!
_______________________________________________________________

Gourmand / Food

  The scents which bring to mind the lushious passion of fragrant edibles are "Gourmand." These oils bring deep notes to a fragrance as decadent as the foods from which their scents derive. Try our Gourmand Sampler!
_______________________________________________________________

Verdant / Green

  Composed of lush, green scents that call forth the fresh vegetation of spring and summer, verdants are a breath of renewal in almost any fragrance. Try our Verdant Sampler!
_______________________________________________________________

Terrestrial / Earthy

  For the deep, alluring scent of nature's rebirth, one must look to the earth below. Terrestrial scents do just this, evoking the subtle tones found in fields and forest floors. Try our Terrestrial Sampler!
_______________________________________________________________

Arboraceous / Wood

These scents bring forth the character of woods and saps. Arboraceous scents represent some of the most historic and storied scents available to the perfumer. Try our Arboraceous Sampler!
_______________________________________________________________

Of course if you would rather just have all the oils you can buy our Complete Sample Setinstead! We have a special sampler just for our Essential Oils as well. Don't forget you can also add up to three 1 ml samples to your order for free just by leaving us a note of what fragrances you want to try. Unfortunately, we cannot give more than three per order, but this still allows you to sniff many scents before you buy a bigger size.

Well those are our updates for now! However you choose to celebrate this wonderful season, we hope it is a happy and healthy one. <3

Design your own Love Potion!

Okay, so you wouldn't DRINK this potion. No, this is all about the scent experience. 

But that is not to say it is any less potent. Scent is powerful. It bypasses our conscious mind, exciting our id and unearthing past memories of lost loves, lost experiences, and better times. 

How can we harness this power for love? First, you have to know your beloved. 

Start with the top note (a bit backwards, but hey, that's love for ya.) What is the first impression your beloved sends? 

  • Warmth? Allspice (Also, it's an aphrodisiac. You're welcome.)
  • Joy? Orange blossom
  • Kindness? Violet
  • Serenity? Green tea 

Then move onto the heart. What is in your beloved's heart? 

  • Mystery? Absinthe
  • Passion? Smoke
  • Sensuality? Jasmine
  • Romance? Rose

Finally, explore your beloved's foundation. Think deeply. 

  • Amber for old souls
  • Chocolate for generous souls
  • Ginger for ornery souls
  • Tobacco for mighty souls

Put these all together and get a fragrance that is sure to entice. The magic? It's in the depth of thought you have put into contemplating every aspect of your beloved. <3


Well those are all of our updates for now!
Have a Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
