Hello Summer!! Here on the East Coast, we are absolutely thrilled with the start of summer weather after such a harsh winter; seeing our flowers bloom, our brown grass turn green, and experiencing the joy of feeling the sunshine on our face, is such a blessing. My peonies are just beginning to bloom, and they are one of my all time favorite flowers. They smell and look gorgeous. I've stepped up my running game again, now that the weather is warm (no excuses!), and cut back on all those winter sweets I had been indulging in. Time for getting back to a whole food health and life. Summer, maybe even more than a new year for me, is about realigning, refocusing and getting back to basics. With that in mind, we have two special treats that say summer to me when you order your Perfect Provenance products -- you will receive one of them as a gift when you order this summer. We won't ruin the surprise, you will just have to wait and order and see!
We are loving all of our friends and family who have posting their pics of #smilemore tees to social media, and love the idea of this going viral. Thank you and please continue to help us spread the love! From Florida to California and back to Connecticut, we smile every time we see these photos.
In addition to previewing our new collection of #smilemore tees to benefit Operation Smile, launching the website and getting up and running, we have been very busy here at the Perfect P developing our new product lines. I cannot wait until you see. smell and experience our new products. These last few weeks I have been sketching and designing our jewelry, which I would describe as modern, chic and edgy, all wrapped in one! I am collaborating on the design with a jeweler I have adored for years -- Zig Zag Jewelers on Madison Avenue. Our designs together are based on principles I believe in and love -- balance, architecture and beauty. Each design will be our own special, delicate creation and really represent the look and feel.,materials and aesthetic, I want our company to symbolize.
Our home fragrance line of candles samples also arrived this week. We now test their 'burn' which means we are burning the candle in our home, and living with it to make sure it is just right. We have spent weeks smelling oils and 'mods' (modifications) with our perfumery partner Symrise (a former PR client of mine) that represent different ideas that I have had in my mind for years. The fragrance concepts represent different memories, ideas in my life that speak to me and I hope speak to you. Sensory ideas that evoke peace, happiness, nature, and more. Years and years ago, I wanted to open a candle store because I have always loved how scent can transform a mood and a room. I have spent much of my career working in the fragrance business. and it is true luxury to bring these ideas to life now with my extremely creative friends in perfumery.
I'm off to enjoy this beautiful weekend. Hope yours is safe, happyand healthy.
