Did you know that there are some “traditional” fragrances on the market that may be filled with petrochemicals, phthalate, propylene glycol, mineral oils, silicone, synthetic dyes, sulfates or parabens? Check the fragrances you have at home and read the ingredients listed.
I purchased The Healthy Fragrance Deluxe Mini Roller-Ball Set from Lavanila Laboratories and there are none of the above listed ingredients. This is all-natural; it has no harsh chemicals. Lavanila Laboratories infuses pure essential oils with anti-oxidants and plant botanicals.
Here are the listed ingredients: Alcohol Denatured (Organic Sugar Cane), Botanical Fragrance, Deionized Water, Lycium Barbarum (Goji) Powder, Terminalia ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum) Fruit Extract, Epilobium Angustifolium (Canadian Willowherb) Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Alteromonas Ferment Extract, Chrysanthemum Indicum Extract (Chamomile), Oat Amino Acids, Glycerin (Vegetable), Vanilla Planifolia
It is available for purchase at Lavanila’s website: http://www.lavanila.com/ for US $34.00 ($48 value).
The set includes four portable roller-balls in the following fragrances:
0.17 oz roller-ball fragrance in Pure Vanilla: A sensual blend of Madagascar vanilla, soft freesia, and rich heliotrope
0.17 oz roller-ball fragrance in Vanilla Coconut: An exotic blend of young coconut, Tahitian tiare flower, and warm Madagascar vanilla
0.17 oz roller-ball fragrance in Vanilla Grapefruit: An invigorating blend of sparkling grapefruit, creamy sandalwood lime, and Madagascar vanilla
0.17 oz roller-ball fragrance in Vanilla Lavender: A clean blend of Spanish lavender, rose absolute, violet leaf, and warm Madagascar vanilla
Simply apply the fragrance(s) to clean, dry skin. Have fun experimenting with applying more than one fragrance at a time (layering); the set is a collection of complimentary fragrances. You can create your own signature scent.
Overall, I’m happy with my purchase. However, I won’t be winning any awards for my signature scent as I found that, to my nose, I was not particularly skilled at layering the fragrances. I do recommend it as a fun and economical way to try each of the four scents offered in the collection. Here’s the link to see the prices if you were to purchase them individually, and the different sizes available: http://www.lavanila.com/Fragrance_c_2.html The rollerballs are terrific to throw in your handbag, and I had no problems with any leakage. While your need for “touch-ups” during the day will depend on personal preference, I found that all the scents were long-lasting.
