Celebrate Dad and a 20% off Sale for 1 week!

Greetings, dear Purrfumery friends!

Even if I didn’t have a calendar, I could feel the early days of summer by the pulse of the Perfumer’s Garden. The roses begin to burst open and share their incredible scent with the world, the bees forage like mad, and the hummingbirds hover around the honeysuckle. Lavender grows full and tall and the rising temperatures coax the purple spikes into the world.

Roses have always been my special love, and we have quite a line up here! Cecile Brunner, with its delicate pink buds and climbing vines are my favorite, followed by Graham Thomas, Double Delight and Reine de Violette. A walk through the Purrfumery Garden in the afternoon is an incredible treat – a sight to behold! Let me know if you would like to schedule an appointment to visit the Perfumer’s Garden. It’s a summer tradition for many of my Purrfumery friends! I recently hosted a watercolorist group that focuses on flowers that bees pollinate as their subject matter. We sat in the garden, sipped freshly made lemonade, sniffed perfume and talked about bees, the plants they pollinate, and the best ways to capture them in art. It was a magical day! 



A Creative Burst… and a Sale!

I am in a design mode and have been working on a new perfume for dudes, as well as some delightful new scent cards to accompany my Kittylicious line! Perfumers produced whimsical scent cards in Victorian times to accompany perfumes and colognes, and I love to carry on the tradition! I have a delightful collection of them myself! I like to tuck them here and there to add a special touch to my décor. Start your own collection of Purrfumery scent cards!

With summer on the way, I know that many of my Purrfumery friends will be on the road, visiting family and friends. Don’t forget, Purrfumery products make gorgeous hostess gifts, and they arrive to you in their own exquisite packaging, ready to tuck into your suitcase! Starting today, I will be offering 20% off on all perfumes for one week, until Wednesday, June 11- this is a wonderful opportunity to try something new! Please type in catman in the discount box. (How about Fleur de Caramel? A sensual summer treat!) Or, share the Purrfumery with someone you love. 



Celebrate Dad – first 10 orders receive free Gardenia hydrosol

Father’s Day is June 15 – if you are looking for a special way to celebrate the dads in your life, look no further than the Purrfumery! Guys love Mojito from the Kittylicious line, with notes of spearmint, dark rum, Mexican lime and Tahitian vanilla. Mojito arrives in a convenient roll-top bottle, tucked into a velvet pouch garnished with a velvet mint leaf. Terrain also makes a handsome gift – I created this cologne for my husband Gary, a landscape architect who loves to get his hands in the dirt. Terrain is an invigorating mix of wild Bulgarian geranium, frankincense and Japanese yuzu, with a touch of Mexican lime. I package Terrain in a Brosse crystal cologne bottle and tuck it into a soft, moss green velvet pouch with its own whimsical scent card. And don’t forget Fir-ever Young, a rich, woodsy scent for your tree-hugging Dads! Fir-ever Young reflects upon my hiking days to the hot springs in Big Sur, and how magic a walk through the forest can be. 

The first 10 people to order Mojito, Terrain, or Fir-ever Young will receive a free, 10 ml spray bottle of my new Gardenia hydrosol, distilled from fresh gardenias on our own still!

Happy Father’s Day!

Frostings at the Purrfumery

Attention, Frosting Lovers! A few months ago, I procured hundreds of gardenia flowers and made a gorgeous enfleurage for frostings. During late spring and summer, I sell these incredible moisturizing treats direct from the Purrfumery, so come see me! I won’t be shipping them again until fall, but you can still get them when you visit me. I have been packing them in ice for my Purrfumery friends (my frostings are completely natural and don’t contain any preservatives, which is why I take such special care with them). If you haven’t tried my frostings, you must! They nourish dry and dehydrated summer skin with organic oils that are rich in antioxidants and high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Smooth them on and inhale deeply!

Enjoy this beautiful day, my dear Purrfumery friends!

Peace, love, purrfume and kitty cats…
