Juicy New Blog!
Think back to a hot summer day of your childhood...do remember when you set up a table and a homemade sign that read something like, Lemonade for $ale .10 cents...you and your best friend (mine was Mary D'Angelo) squeezed every last lemon on the kitchen counter to make the best lemonade possible.
We found 2 comfy chairs and a 8 track tape player and we sat by the street in my hometown of New Orleans and sold lemonade to passersby. The neighborhood boys, at least the cute ones, did not have to pay. Everyone else, including Mary's mother who bought the lemons, had to pay. We squeezed the most juice out of those lemons to make more money to buy roller skates or a Barbie townhouse---I can't remember which! We also drank up the summer sun and the carefree days of summer as kids.
That's what this blog is going to be---a place to squeeze out the best of the best in products from our flagship store, Tales by the Sea: books, body and bath! We promise to entertain, enlighten and tempt you down to the last drop!
Speaking of drops...just a drop of our JUICY COUTURE perfume will have you wishin' for more. The fragrance was created by perfumer Harry Fremont, and has hints of watermelon, mandarin, pink passionfruit, marigold, green apple, water hyacinth, crushed leaves, tuberose absolute, wild rose, princess lily, caramel crème brulée, vanilla, precious woods and patchouli.
According to one blogger at Smell This, "Juicy Couture starts with sweet — make that very sweet — fruits, heavy on the watermelon. As it dries down, the sweetness is cut momentarily by the water hyacinth and a vague touch of green, but it is amped up again as the white florals take the stage, and again later as the caramel and vanilla come into play. The tuberose predominates only for a short time, after that, it smells like indistinct white florals. The base is rather light, at least in the Eau de Parfum concentration, and is painted in tones that are more cool than warm, so despite the sweetness and the caramel crème brulée and vanilla, it does not have the feel of a gourmand scent." Like I said...you'll be wishin' for more!
