Happy Valentine's Day Newsletter!

Greetings, my dear Purrfumery friends!

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and it’s my favorite holiday of the year, so let’s have some fun!

Name my New Perfume!

I’m kicking off the new year with a new perfume and I need YOUR help to give it a name. I will include a sample of this gorgeous new scent with all perfume orders until the end of February. Inhale deeply, think creative thoughts, and email me your name ideas at laurie@purrfumery.com. The winner will receive a jewel box solid of my new perfume!

I am loving this new scent! For now it is available in a solid, and the best word to describe it is YUM! It has top notes of blood orange, which make it very juicy and tart. I used a very rare and special Tasmanian boronia wax that my dear friend Lisa gave me, benzoin resins and fir absolute that are wonderfully jammy and rich. I also used juicy black current bud and lush, floral osmathus. 

I can’t wait to receive your ideas!

Valentines Day Special

I get lots of requests for my imported Verreries Brosse bottles with stopper tops – they are gorgeous, aren’t they? Fun facts: The Verreries Brosse factory is in Vieux-Rouen-sur-Bresle, Normandy. The company started in 1854 as glassmakers, but their destiny was in luxury and lead crystal flacon and toiletry containers. Manufacturing gorgeous perfume bottles for luxury brands is what they are known for to this day! 

From now until February 7th, if you order the 30 ml spray of Luminous Lemurs ($195), I will package your perfume in an opulent Verreries Brosse bottle with a stopper top, and tuck it into a velvet pouch. Normally these bottles of perfume would cost $265 – it’s my way of saying Happy Valentine’s Day to you! 

(If you prefer the spray and do not want the Verreries Brosse bottle, just let me know in the notes.)

I continue to donate a generous portion of the proceeds from Luminous Lemurs to Centre ValBio, in Madagascar. Yes, perfume can help make the world a better place for animals and people!

Love, Love, Love Pangolin Violette Rose!

Pangolin Violette Rose is such a special scent, created for a Chicago art exhibit that showcased and celebrated femininity. This scent combines gorgeous and rare essences – many that will never be available again. Pangolin Violette Rose is a wonderful Valentine’s Day indulgence for yourself or someone you love. 1/2 the cost of the perfume will go to the Pangolin Crisis Fund, helping this most trafficked endangered species and saving them from extinction.

And I’m excited to report that Pangolin Violette Rose was voted one of 2021’s 10 Best Perfumes by award winning writer Ida Meister of CaFleureBon! Thank you for this amazing honor!

Luxurious Moisture – Frostings are back!

Is your skin feeling dry from the winter air? My Face & Body Frostings drench your skin with organic oils that are rich in antioxidants and high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. I have Frostings in…

Kashmir Rose: A rich combination of Himalayan Rose otto and Moroccan Rose absolute.

Gardenia: A true labor of love! I use more than 150 hand-picked gardenias and draw out their scent using a process that takes two weeks. 

Black Cat: A bewitching blend of mouth-watering cocoa, sensuous ylang ylang, juicy blood orange, and a hint of sweet, surprising aniseed myrtle.  

Luminous Lemurs: A sensuous and transporting blend of ylang ylang, clove, nutmeg, and blood orange.

Orange Blossom: Gorgeous! I blend this Frosting with Italian Neroli flowers and organic tangerine and orange essence oils. These essence oils are made from the juice – not from the rind – so they are not phototoxic or skin damaging. Many people don’t realize that there is a big difference between citrus essential oils and essence oils.

New Earth-Friendly Packaging

I am making every effort to phase out plastic packaging, and that includes sprayer tops. I’m excited to announce the new bottle I found for my 4 ml eau de parfums – I will start using them this month. They’re beautiful and Earth friendly and have a screw top. No more hard-to-recycle sprayers on the 4 ml bottles! Some of you may have noticed that I am using eco-friendly silicone wax containers now for the solid perfume samples.

I’m happy to refill your bottles when they run low – just let me know what you need.

Peace, love, purrfume, social justice and kitty cats,
