The art of wearing fragrance isn’t limited to dabbing or spritzing it on your skin. Even the Egyptians wore scented amulets, and later on, perfumed fans, handkerchiefs and gloves were all the rage in 15th Century Europe.
In the distant past, these items might have been a way just to mask the odors of the environment and less than pristine bodies, but fragrance jewelry today is really a fashion choice. One designer of fragrance jewelry that has stood out as exceptional, is Lisa Hoffman.
Advicesisters.com has often featured Lisa Hoffman Fragrance Jewelry and all of her unique and lovely fragrances on our website. Her elegant and luxurious pieces include earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, all featuring decorative “lockets” into which you add little fragrance beads in various scents. As you move, the beads infuse the air around you with a whiff of scent.
New Lisa Hoffman Fragrance Charm Designs!
Wanderlust features a much larger fragrance locket charm in a leaf shape, an oblong talisman,
That’s not to say that the beaded and chain bracelet designs aren’t fabulous because we do still love them and they are still available. For travel and casual days, or for people who like a one size fits all stretchy bracelet, they’re gorgeous. But this solid sterling silver bangle and charm with 14K plating moves the fragrance jewelry from casual into the fine jewelry category.
But this solid sterling silver bangle and charm with 14K plating moves the fragrance jewelry from casual into the fine jewelry category. It is beautifully crafted.
The bangle is slim so it lends itself to layering with those bracelets others you always wear. This can also make quite a statement going solo!
The bracelet measures 6 inches around. This bracelet slips on your wrist without having to open anything. One of the gold balls on the end of the bracelet unscrews to let you remove the charm and fill it with fragrance beads. Although it is meant to be worn on the bracelet, you could consider wearing the fragrance charm on a chain or ribbon.
The charm is a lovely filigree design (with a signature LH Logo tag attached) . The large square fragrance charm suspended diagonally is a 25.5 mm square. 9.5 mm deep. What makes the charm unique is not just the beautiful design, but the fact that with the larger size, the fragrance beads really scent the air more efficiently but still in am elegant and subtle way.
We think you could probably add some other tiny charms (maybe a little gemstone?) but the charm filled with fragrance beads is weighty enough so that adding too many other charms to the bracelet could make it awkward to wear.
No matter how you wear it, this personalized, special piece of jewelry will be something that makes you feel pampered, and unique. The pieces are that “little something” you can give yourself, or give to someone special as that talisman they will wear that reminds them how much you care for them. It would make a great gift to give a romantic partner, but it would be equally lovely to give a special sister, your mom, etc.
Layer Up Your Fragrance Beads!
The key to Lisa Hoffman Fragrance Jewelry isn’t just the design, it’s the unique wooden fragrance beads that you place within the fragrance lockets.
Lisa Hoffman offers eight lovely fragrances and all are available in the fragrance beads as well as Eau de Parfums.
The fragrance beads come in jars at $40.00 per bottle and made from sustainably harvested woods and undiluted fragrance oils (read more) .
Your Personal Fragrance Made Easy With Scent Beads:
Once of the nice things about Lisa Hoffman Fragrance jewelry is how personalized it is. You can layer the little beads together in the different fragrances, wear just one, experiment, and if you don’t like the combination you made, just pull out the beads and start again.
The initial investment in many sets of fragrance beads at $40 per set might seem high, but consider that the fragrance beads last a long time and you don’t need many. You can mix and blend fragrances in a way that is nearly impossible with a liquid fragrance. And, of course, the jewelry is beautiful even when the fragrance beads are fading.
We layered our Wanderlust charm with Brazillian Begonia and Tunisian Fig.

A Whiff of Paradise, Hawaiian Plumeria:
In our long association with Lisa Hoffman Fragrances we’ve tried every single fragrance except the newest, Hawaiian Plumeria. Inspired by Lisa’s family trips to the Big Island, Hawaiian Plumeria features warm base notes of shaved coconut, lush green foliage and exotic orchids and a top note of salty ocean air combined with a fragrant heart of lemony Hawaiian Plumeria nestled between.
What Are the Notes?
Tropical and aquatic with a top note of fresh ocean air. Shaved coconut, lush green foliage, and exotic orchids mingle effortlessly with the heart note of sweet and feminine plumeria. Although some tropical Hawaiian fragrances can be overwhelming, this one is subtle, and easy to wear. Charm and seduce someone special by spritzing on Hawaiian Plumeria!
The Hawaiian Plumeria Eau de Toilettte 60 ml is $65.00 or $22.00(0.5 Fl Oz). Beaded fragrance bracelets with the new fragrance charms start at $105 (depending upon the semi-precious beads). Cuffs (bangles) begin at $155 for sterling silver. Necklaces begin at $150 (20″) silver earrings begin at $165.00
