Welcome to the second review of my perfume series. If you missed the first one, click here
I have to admit, I'm having so much fun surrounded by all these wonderful perfumes! Oh, the joys of being a girl ;)
Now let me introduce you to another amazing company dedicated to delivering clean, handcrafterd personal care to the world.
Karen Ciesar is a social justice attorney, an entrepreneur and mother of three. Born out her dream of a better world where g
I heard about Trillium Organics a few years back as I was on my quest to find better, non-toxic products. Even before my switch to healthier items, I've always enjoyed trying out new products, cosmetics, fragrances and the like. The fact that their products were safe and non-toxic was a bonus. So, I decided to try out their perfumes.
Trillium Organics has three categories in their perfume collection. I got three perfumes from the OGSoul (ROMANCE, PASSION, LOVE) collection and one from the OGMind (WORK) collection. Each 33fl oz. roll on bottle will cost you $17.98.
The packaging was attractive. Well... I really liked the colorful, shiny, reflective label. It appealed to me because I'm always distracted by shiny, twinkly, glittery things. (heehee!)There was a bit of a challenge to photograph because it attracted so much light that you couldn't see the writing.
So, after a bit of time spent maneuvering the camera to ensure that I positioned it just right, I was finally able to get into the right angles that lessened the light reflected on the bottles.
Here's more from the company:
Taken directly from their site:
|PASSION has a nice floral-oriental scent mix.|
Ylang ylang, clove and vanilla blend and a heady, mysterious scent which reminded me of a mild version of
Poison by Christian Dior.
|WORK had a fresh, green aroma with a delightful blend of lemon, bergamont and peppermint.|
This scent wakes you up and encourages to tacke the day with gusto!

EMBRACE LOVE, ENTICE PASSION, INVITE ROMANCE
Not that hard to be :)
Mix and Match
LOVE + PASSION = I am cuh-ray-zee for this combo! Subtle, yet mildly fragrant and deliciously mind-blowing. (Whaaat?)
Savory and sweet at the same time. I kept raising my wrist to get a whiff of how well they complimented each other. haha! They were each effective as a stand alone product or combined with the other perfumes. This is definitely an evening scent to be worn out to dinner or a night to paint the town!
WORK + LOVE = Gives off a fruity, slightly earthy scent.
The lemon and begamont is tamed by the sweet yet subtle scent of vanilla and ylang ylang.
A barely there scent perfect for school or the office.
LOVE + ROMANCE = Ahhh, yes. Some may argue that to keep this alive is the road to a successful relationship.
Now back to the review.
Together they gave off an attractive blend of sandalwood, vanilla and ylang-ylang. Dries down to a subtle vanilla. Very nice.
WORK + PASSION = ..will yield positive results! (Sorry - couldn't resist.) The combination gave off a delicious blend of spice, lime and vanilla. Dries down to a sweet, spicy scent. This scent evokes of a sunny day at the park or a day trip to the Catalina Islands for the weekend. YUM!
I've enjoyed them all, but if I had to choose a couple, I'd choose LOVE and PASSION. That spicy sweet combo is definitely my cup of tea.
I hope you've enjoyed reading this review as much as I did writing it.
