Tell us about your business.

I have been making my own make-up for about 15 years. I could not find anything I liked that I felt was good for my skin and did not change colors on my skin throughout the day. What started as a hobby in Aromatherapy soon became a passionate love as a creator of perfume. I am a Californian by way of Texas who moved to the east coast with her husband and son in 2010. I decided to take the leap and pursue my passion of creating fragrances after a rewarding career in the pharmaceutical industry that spanned over two decades. My knowledge of pharmaceuticals and my relationships with some of the most respected chemist and scientist in the industry have been an invaluable resource. I believe that a science based approach for ingredients combined with a hand-crafted final product produces the most beautiful results. My products are original and of the highest quality. They are not copycats of anything. I will change the scent of the world one mist at a time.

What makes your business stand out?

Everything is original. Every perfume I make tells a story, creates a mood or is designed to reflect lifes beautiful journey. The cosmetics I make are based on science. Beauty is a science and every woman is beautiful. I believe every woman at any age can have good looking skin. I create products for the skin that make a difference.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Your difference is your gift tot the world.
