A New Perfume & A Free Bonus From The Purrfumery!

Greetings, my dear Purrfumery friends!

Summer in the Bay Area is always a surprise, especially for visitors. It may be 100 degrees on one side of the Bay, while it’s misty and cool in the hills overlooking the Golden Gate. The Perfumer’s Garden flourishes in our cool summers, and today I am standing in awe over the roses, irises, yarrow… and listening to the bees buzzing. If you’re entertaining family or friends this season and want to share a unique and experiential scent adventure with them (and beat the heat), give me a call or drop me an email to make an appointment.

And, until August 1st, I will include a free lavender bath salt with all purchases over $50! Come see me, my dear Purrfumery friends!

New perfume! Highway celebrates our collective wanderlust

I’m thrilled to announce my newest perfume, Highway  for men and women! Blogger Beth Schreibman Gehring describes it as “that elegant gypsy of a scent, the perfume that’s arrived in my life just in time for all of my new adventures.”

Highway expresses my passion for life, love, and the wanderlust that we all feel now and again. It’s a perfume inspired by a song… I had been listening to The Highwayman, sung by Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings… It’s a song about reincarnation and life’s changes and heartbreaks. That rambling, roaming change and the fluid nature of our lives is at the heart of this perfume.

The Purrfumery hits the road

Speaking of roaming, the Purrfumery will be on the road this summer.

Woodside, CA

I will be at the Filoli Summer Surprises  event from 3-4 p.m. on August 5 for Sweet Intoxication: The Magical Union between Bees, Flowers, and Natural Perfumery. I will be presenting with Filoli Instructor Pat Gibbons and sharing flower and plant essences and the art of natural perfumery. Join us for a fun and informative day at beautiful Filoli!

Oakland, CA

Then, on September 11, I will be at Homestead Apothecary teaching my class “Perfumery for your Spirit, or trusting your nose to know what’s good for you!” We will start with a mini-Perfumery Adventure, and you will have the rare opportunity to smell aromatic treasures from around the globe including Bulgarian Rose Otto, 100-year-old Indian Sandalwood, night blooming jasmine and Oud. Using what you learn during the Adventure, and guided by your intuition, you will create your own natural, organic perfume that speaks to your heart.

This is an excellent class for people who want to understand the technical and ethereal aspects of perfume-making. You will learn about top, middle and base notes, how a natural perfume is constructed and how it evolves over time. You will also learn some safety issues to consider when working with essential oils for perfumery.

Email me at laurie@purrfumery.com if you are interested, or contact Homestead Apothecary. I look forward to seeing you there!

Have you tried the Purrfumery’s room sprays?

A fragrant room can set the mood and delight every visitor. The Purrfumery’s Natural and Organic Scented Mists are perfect to spritz in the air, on pillows and sheets, and even on your skin! Forest Mist, a mix of fir, pine and cedar essences, brings the forest to any room. These earthy, fresh essences are naturally beneficial to the respiratory system. Lavender Rose Geranium combines a trio of complementary flowers and plants, perfect for promoting a restful sleep. Put one in every room in your home and inhale deeply!

Your thoughts?

I am thinking of doing a Fall Spirit Perfume Workshop here at the Purrfumery. What do you think? Drop me an email and let me know if you’d be interested in a workshop at the Purrfumery. Hope to see you sometime soon!

Until next time…

Peace, love, purrfume and kitty cats,

XOXO~ Laurie
