I got it!! I just got my perfume. It is like nothing I have ever smelled before. It is a little bit musky, powdery. It is very light, like a feather. It is not an old scent, it is not a young scent, it seems very natural. I am so excited. Thank you so much for your guidance. I know I will have fun with this. As soon as I can I would like to create another. What fun having my own scent. I feel sooo special.


I never took the time to thank you for the time you spent with Jeff and me a few weeks ago. We both enjoyed the experience immensely as well as the knowledge you imparted. You are delightful! I thoroughly enjoyed the sample you gave me and am now on a mission to purchase it.

Hi Laura - I just wanted to thank you for spending time with me to play with fragrances. It was great getting to know you and I just loved testing and trying the various scents. I have been enjoying the fragrance I applied this morning...it lasted almost all day. In addition to Coco and Opium, I really like the Hannae Mori Oriental Moon. It's been so pleasant to get a whiff of my fragrance throughout the day and to notice how nice it is and how good it makes me feel. I think it is very grounding. I'm excited to have you come do a "Fragrance Feast" at my home.

All the best


Dear Ms. Laura Donna

I am so glad I atttended the fragrance workshop on Thursday. I can now successfully debate my sister's obvious "oriental" taste in fragrances. It was interesting to find out about different base fragrance oils and their essentials. I enjoyed the smellings best. Thank you for coming in and sharing your talents and knowledge with me and the CT Youth Forum participants!

Forever a "Floral"


We have taken many of your suggestions regarding packaging and these have definitely helped with sales. Have done well with boxing 9 votives in an attractive box and attached a card with scent names. People seem to really appreciate the fact that they don't have to ponder over what scents might go together for a gift. Have also looked into and found some new containers for a more contemporary and sensual "look" and will find scents to pair with these. Your encouragement and assistance in thinking more about presentation as well as new scents has really helped us to feel comfortable in experimenting and developing this business as ours and not just carrying on the tradition of the former owners.
