The discovery and development process for each of my scents can be one of the most emotional journeys for me as a designer. With each of my scents there is a very in depth process that requires a deep look into each gemstone and what type of women embodies that stone. I find inspiration in the color and essence of the stone and look for flowers and essences from the region where the gemstone is naturally found. With this deeper understanding of the gemstone it helps guide me to the creation of each of my scents.
It is very important to me that the true essence of the gemstone comes through while experiencing the fragrance as the gemstone is born into a perfume. My passion for both jewelry and fragrance has led me to a greater understanding and discovery of each scent.
The most cherished scent in my collection is Pearl. Pearl was the natural gemstone that I chose to represent one of the most precious moments in my life – the birth of my first daughter, Sophie Rose Annabelle Lee. The Pearl has been a symbol of unblemished perfection since ancient times and continues to represent purity and innocence. Reflective of the journey of motherhood and creation of new life, I was able to experience and imagine the beauty of the scent before it’s creation, similar to the process of pregnancy. At 8 months into my pregnancy I was able to envision what Pearl symbolized to me and began the journey of creating a fragrance that would embody the sweet smell of a baby and encompass all of the purity and delight of new life!
The Pearl fragrance was also created for women who are sensitive to fragrance and who struggle with potent perfumes in general. Pearl is the perfect fragrance for a new mother and newborn child due to their sensitivity to smell. Pearl offers a gentle, 100% natural, subtle fragrance that is not overpowering, making it the perfect choice for you and your babies first year together!
After the launch of Pearl the beautiful fragrance quickly climbed to the top of the charts in sales in my fragrance collection and to this day maintains its status as one of the top two fragrances in my entire collection of 19 scents.
Pearl: (Birthstone for June) A Pearl is a lustrous fragrance that adorns the wearer with an aura of inviting beauty. Inspired by those captivating organic stones that oysters and mollusks have offered humankind since time immemorial, it is both delicate and enduring. The fragrance’s full, round base note accord of meditative sandalwood and fresh musks accented with warm vanilla and fresh, green mousse de chene suggests the innocence and spiritual purity that pearls have long represented. The pearl collection is available in Pearl Roll-On Oil, FAINT Pearl Roll-on Oil, Eau de Toilette Pearl, 3 oz. Pearl Travel Candle, 4 oz. Pearl FAINT Candle, and 8 oz. Candle Pearl!
Enjoy and be well!
