These were first available in Europe and like Memo Paris, this haiku inspired fragrance line is in a lot of retail outlets in the United States now. I’ve finally got my hands on samples of the entire line (they have a discovery set!). Over the next couple of days, I’ll be posting reviews of this line. So, let’s get started… Continue reading | 4 Comments
You guys, I’ve been meaning to post this for two weeks now and have been busy.

Fragrances and flavors go hand in hand. I’m actually surprised that more perfume brands don’t have flavorful luxuries (i.e. tea or chocolate) in their lines because it seems like such a natural pairing!¹ When a perfume brand offers ways for me to basically eat or drink perfume, I’m interested.
Providence Perfume Co. has six flavors of “a*poth*a*care*tea” AKA organic, perfumed loose leaf tea blended by an indie perfumer.
