Perfume Love

Confession - I rarely wear perfume.  I used to love Estee Lauder's Knowing, but then it started smelling weird on me, so  I've been relying on scented body lotions for a little extra zip.

California Daughter gave me a subscription to Birchbox for Christmas.  Every month I get a box full of products - lotions, hair stuff, face creams, the occasional wild -colored nail polish, and little bottles of perfume.  I've been spritzing on the perfume, but wasn't wild about any of them.

Then came the March box and a sample of Harvey Prince's Ageless - I've found my new perfume! It has a light mixture of floral and citrusy (but not overpowering orange peel-ish!) and the scent lasts all day.

According to the website, the company was founded by two brothers who were inspired by their mother to create this fragrance.  Here's the claim made on the website:
"Here's the secret: Ageless is inspired by recent studies conducted by the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, which find pink grapefruit and mango to be the olfactory antidote to aging.  Women from around the world are loving Ageless; based on their testimonials and our own trials, Ageless makes you feel and smell 8-12 years younger."  I'm pretty sure that just code-speak for  "We don't want Ma to smell like an old lady".  So this perfume has no hint of rose, no musty powder, no blast of chemicals that make your eyes water.

I'm not expecting anything more of perfume than to make me feel good wearing it.  I'm not looking for a miracle in a bottle.   Thanks, boys;  this does it for me.


  1. What a wonderful gift idea. I never heard of Birchbox, I will definitely check it out. How exciting to get new goodies every month! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I'm waiting for my "invite" to Birchbox. The perfume sounds quite yummy & as a perfume bottle collecter, I love the one pictured at the beginning of your post.

  3. Kathy - I don't know anything about an invite to BirchBox. I thought you "joined" buy sending money - ha! It's really fun to get a box of goodies every month! I love the old bottle, too.
