i own a lot of perfume. from the fruity and chocolaty thiery mugler angel to tropical and beachy kai, i feel like fragrance is an important part of your identity. your personal scent defines you and distinguishes you from a crowd. i try and shy away from expensive, mainstream, perfumes, because who wants to spend a fortune to smell like the person next to you? perfume oils are amazing, because they seem to last a lot longer then the spray ons, and are easily transported in your handbag for periodic touch ups. i adore kai, miss marissa, and faith perfume oils, but with price tags topping $50, they are hardly a recession necessity. i discovered terra nova perfume oils at a beauty supply down the street from me a few years ago. they have oodles of different scents, including gardenia, white ginger, and tuberose, but my absolute favorite is pikake, which brings me back to the gardens of hawaii. every time i rub this oil on my skin, people stop me on the street to inquire about the delicious aroma. and the best part: 4 ounces of the oil for $15!
