You are so popular! But while it is great to be in demand, this season’s bounty of purchases of bridesmaids dresses, garments to wear as a guest, and gifts for those special people, are leaving your budget, drained. If you are starting to recycle what you’re wearing, and you’re longing for something romantic and fun, that also helps you stretch your fragrance budget, we suggest investing in some unique statement jewelry from Lisa Hoffman Beauty. Pop a piece (or two or three) on, and you’ve made a statement, added your fragrance, and you’re ready to rock the next event.
At first glance, the original Lisa Hoffman Beauty Fragrance Jewelry collection which I am showcasing in this feature (there are other collections available as well) look to be made of little balls of antique lace in bronze, silver, gold or rose gold, some on chains, and some accented with pearls and semi-precious stones. Throughout history both men and women have used jewelry to carry various types of “potions.” Lisa Hoffman’s collection takes this tradition into modern times with earrings, necklaces and bracelets that are hinged to open up and contain little balls of scent, all in her beautiful, signature fragrances. The scent wafts through the air as you move, but it’s very subtle..you’d need to be up close and personal to smell it (in other words, you won’t announce yourself coming and going,just as it should be).
I have personally tried most of the Lisa Hoffman fragrances, and they are all unique and beautifully crafted. There isn’t a dud in the bunch. Not all of the jewelry styles are available initially with all of the fragrances, but those little jars ($10.00/refill jar) are meant to be used to refill the pieces, so just get the jewelry you want, purchase additional jars of scent balls, and then use the one you want, or layer one or more to make your own signature fragrance.
Using the stretch bracelets with semi-precious stones ($65.00 each) as a guide, here’s a brief rundown on the various fragrances.
Japanese Agarwood: This rare, woody scent is accented with Zesty Bergamot, Spiced Ginger, and Warm Amber to inspire feelings of comfort and clarity (bracelet has noblesse wood & blue adventurine beads with a bronze-plated charm)
Madagascar Orchid: A modern bouquet of Sheer Jasmine, Ylang Dew, Mimosa Mood & Pink Peony perfectly frame the exotic, unforgettable aroma of Madagascar Orchid (bracelet has tanoak wood & golden beads with brushed gold-plated charm)
Tuscan Fig: Surrounded by Vanilla Bean, Honeysuckle, Coconut Wood, and Gardenia, Tuscan Fig entices you with its warm essence (bracelet has amber resin beads & howlite stones with rose-gold plated charm)
French Clary Sage: Sparkling watery notes harmonize with French Clary Sage, Yellow Freesia, Cotton and Linen Accords to create a crisp, modern fragrance (bracelet has green jade & silver beads with an oxidized sterling silver charm)
Tunisian Neroli: The rich-floral scent of Tunisian Neroli combines Ylang Ylang, Golden Amber, and Neroli Blossoms with Lemon and Buchu Leaf, creating a rich, sensual aura of opulence (bracelet has red jade & golden beads with 14-karat gold-plated charm)
Kerala Ashok Garden Bracelet ($75.00) Highlighting the strength and femininity of Kerala Ashok Garden, the fragrance charm has been completely redesigned to hold more beads and diffuse more fragrance. Experience the beauty and heart of India’s Ashok blossom with complementing notes of Deep Violet, Ripe Pear, Velvety Apricot, and Sheer Jasmine. (bracelet has purple vintage glass beads & silver beads, and a silver plated charm). This bracelet acts as a constant reminder to inhale bliss and exhale peace.
It’s hard to choose just one piece, and with prices starting at just $65.00, you might be able to indulge in several, depending upon your budget. My favorite piece is the The gold toned pendant on a long chain is just $65.00. Should you choose to get the same in 14K gold it’s $1,600. This piece just catches the eye but it is simple. You can take it off the 22″ bead chain if you wish and put it on a choker or even a velvet ribbon. It goes with everything. It isn’t flashy, but it always gets noticed, and of course, the fragrance is a big plus.
Any of all of these pieces would be a lovely gift for a bride to give her attendants, or for a gift for a new graduate, or for a special person to give to that other special person! If you want to go all out, the 14K versions, or one of the collections accented with pearls or crystals, make special gifts as well.
There are so many different combinations and styles of Lisa Hoffman Fragrance Jewelry I can’t list them all here, just go to the Lisa Hoffman Beauty Website and oogle them all. Lisa Hoffman Fragrance Jewelry is also sold on HSN and TSC where they have some special sets.
