Bliss is a perpetual miracle. And what’s so fab about bliss is that we can discover it everyday within ourselves!
We cannot help but be reminded of the veracity of Voltaire’s eloquent expression, particularly after months of nature covered in snow and ice, green begins to expose itself once again, the initial sign of nature’s powers of miraculous rejuvenation and rebirth. April’s wet grass, blossoms beginning to form in May, fruit growing on trees, and moisture in the air tells us that spring has returned. We are part of the cycle of nature, and follow her revitalization.
Even if Mother Nature decides to snow flower-sized snowflakes in Minnesota this April, we know from experience that they’ll quickly melt when the sun comes out. Just a little reminder to be grateful for the spring when she comes to stay!
When I was a child, my grandmother used to call each April 1st with the same line “Look out the window, it’s snowing.” I’d say “Grandma, it’s not snowing, don’t you know it’s April!” She’d insist, so finally I’d put the phone down, go to the window, and when I’d return to the phone, she’s say the inevitable “April Fools.” I miss her calls every April 1st. I’ve always thought Mother Nature and my grandmother were conspiring to make me truly appreciate the beauty of spring.
What better place than a warm fragrant bath to discover your blissful rejuvenation this season? Your bath is a sanctuary for undisturbed reverie and meditation. Release all winter’s cares to be swept away by the uncontrolled beauty of your thoughts, feelings, emotions and sensations. Give in to wherever they lead you…Your bath is your bath. I’d say your bath, your rules, but it’s more your bath, no rules sort of thing, a rule-free zone. Your isolation tank or a shared space, whatever you’re in the mood for. → Read more
written by Raulla S. MitchellSEASONAL FRAGRANCE PHILOSOPHY, in a few words:
Your favorite fragrances become your signature, and there’s no need to change your fragrance wardrobe from season to season, unless of course you want to!
I will forever remember my mother’s perfume as she prepared for a night out with my father. It was part of her essence, a woman celebrating a romantic evening. As she hugged me before going out, the smell of her skin became one with my own.
Like the fragrances I wear today, my mother’s fragrance remained on the fabric of her clothes. Trying on my mother’s clothes hanging over her chair was like wrapping myself up in her arms.
Today my teenage daughter wraps herself lovingly in my bathrobe, and tells me it smells like me.
Your fragrant self is a gift of love to you and to those whom you cherish, now and forever. It is the stuff of treasured memories, an expression of YOU.
That said, maybe you change how you feel from season to season? Do you feel a sense of renewal and joy when spring rolls into town? Are you ready to change your fragrance up a bit to express how you feel now?
There are fragrances that seem to naturally herald the first gentle caress of spring, flowers and fruit growing from the fertile earth. The light floral and fruity fragrances of the following 4 fragrances celebrate a gentle transition to spring.
Express your new spring self, and always feel free to call for a personalized consultation if you’d like to play and explore a fragrance that beautifully expresses who you are right now! → Read more
