December 2010 Newsletter

Winter greetings, dear Purrfumery friends!

Brrrr! It's chilly out there! The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is keeping us warm here at the Purrfumery. We are delighted by the response Bed of Roses, our newest limited edition perfume, has received since we unveiled it in late November. Check out Monica Miller's review in Ca Fleure Bon! Monica was even inspired to write a sexy poem about it! Thank you, Monica of Ca Fleure Bon! Every time I fill a bottle I am struck by the deliciousness of it! How I love the scent of roses blended with dark chocolate, cognac, tuberose and orange blossom... I have woven elements of my past into each bottle of Bed of Roses. Over thirty years ago, I started a business creating one-of-a-kind, hand-sewn lingerie pieces for I. Magnin, Henri Bendel and other luxury stores. Memories of this incredible business came flooding back to me when I was designing the packaging for Bed of Roses. You'll see! I nestle each 30 ml bottle of Bed of Roses in a one-of-a-kind, silk velvet pouch that I hand-beaded with semi-precious jewels. I absolutely relished my career as a fashion designer – it's so fun to remember those days and play with vintage velvet millinery flowers and beads! And, "Bed of Roses" was the name of my wedding flower business I started as a flower stand in Kensington 25 years ago. I love having this thread that connects my work in the Purrfumery with my previous businesses... newsletter-13 You must try this gorgeous new scent, my dear Purrfumery friends! I am including a sample with all December orders; you may also order samples at

Thank you, El Cerrito Patch!

I would like to send a heartfelt thank you to Yuko Fukami, a reporter at El Cerrito Patch, for the wonderful article she wrote about the Purrfumery, titled "The Art of Composing Fragrance, Naturally." It was a pleasure to meet you, Yuko, and thank you for your work on this article! Check it out!

Looking for Love?

If so, look no further. I am searching for a home for a sweet male kitty, age 3-4 years. He is FIV negative and has been neutered. He was abandoned last spring and is currently living with a foster parent who, unfortunately, cannot keep him. He is an indoor kitty and would prefer to be the only animal in the home. He is very affectionate and just needs a place to call his own. For more information, please email Kim at Please put the word out! Best wishes to you and yours, my dear Purrfumery friends! Until next year... Peace, love, purrfume, and kitty cats, ~XOXO, Laurie
