Nose-to-nose: Sniffing out news with Esther, August 19, 2015

New in niche
Are you a lavender-lover? If so, you may be interested in the offerings of Vancouver-based perfumer Ayala Moriel, who recently featured her lavender scents in her e-newsletter, after participating in a lavender harvest on British Columbia’s Salt Spring Island. Moriel has on offer a soliflore called Lovender, an aptly named Fougere Classique, along with other scents featuring lavender including Palas Atena and l’Herbe Rouge.  She has Lovender soap on offer as well. Check out her site ayalamoriel.com. 
 
Deals, deals, deals
Providence Perfume Co. is having a Fire Sale, prompted by a real fire in their brick and mortar store in Rhode Island. While none of their products were actually harmed in the fire, they figured it was as good a reason as any to offer customers a discount. Until Sunday, August 23 at 11 pm EST, you can get 20% off all full size 30-ml (1 ounce) bottles of perfume. The discount code is FRESHSTART and should be entered at checkout. 
 
Interested in sampling some of their wares? Gwen and Kay have Rose Boheme, Tabac Citron, Branch and Vine and Moss Gown on offer.

Makes me want to try it
I’m a sucker for rose scents, and so when I stumbled on this list of favourite rose frags on Perfume Shrine, I had to dip into it.  I’ve sampled many on the list, and own more than a couple—and now have a few more to search out.

Just because
Some days your feet just don’t do what you want them to do.
