Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries Launches

Temptalia has teamed up with Sephora to help promote Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries! Leslie Blodgett is the founder of cult-favorite brand Bare Escentuals, and Perfume Diaries is her first fragrance launch. The fragrance series consists of scents inspired by Leslie’s travels around the world. The first scent is Bare Skin, which was created to evoke memories of being on the beach.

To kick off the launch, Sephora wants you to create your own digital “perfume diaries,” for their contest. Just head over to Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries on Facebook for more details.

Here’s mine:

It’s bright, sunny, and there is just a few clouds breezing by in the sky. The sun is beating down, while the waves are crashing at my feet. I can feel the cool, gritty sand between my toes. There’s a soft, sweet scent of coconuts with a delectable mix of something just perfectly tropical wafting by. I hear nothing but the sounds of the water rolling in and out as it has done for day in and day out. This moment is about relaxation with none of the pressures of daily life able to intrude.

LUSH for Halloween 2009

Ohh… Halloween fun!

Pumpkin Soap ($5.95)

A spicy Jack-o’-Lantern-shaped soap, made with a blend of sweet orange juice, pumpkin puree, cinnamon powder and clove bud oil to warm you up after those tireless rounds of trick-or-treating. Stand out from your neighbors and offer trick-or-treaters a break from the Kit Kats, Tootsie Pops and Candy Corn with a Pumpkin Soap instead!

Jacko Bath Bomb ($4.95)

Jacko is a spicy concoction of cinnamon powder, ground chili and cayenne pepper to warm you up on those chilly fall nights. Fresh ginger root and cardamom oil have a warming effect on tired, sore muscles as well as the emotions, in case you’re feeling a bit eerie with the season.

Ghost Shower Gel ($16.95)

This shower gel is to die for – it contains a blend of soothing rose water, ylang ylang, jasmine, and bewitching neroli that will uplift your spirit and make showering a real out-of-this-world experience.

Cobweb Bath Bomb ($5.95)

This is a dark and mysterious cobweb-shaped bath bomb that’s shot through with silver luster – a spooky revelation for anybody in a black mood. Drop it in the tub and the water magically turns into a dark, swirling, twinkling mass, reminiscent of the Halloween night sky. Beautiful lavender is blended with calming chamomile and balancing frankincense and myrrh to create a truly bewitching bath-hour!
