Meilily Product Photos: Sublime Balkiss Parfum by The Different Company!
I purchased a bottle of Sublime Balkiss by The Different Company on a whim during a trip to Barneys, likely feeling overwhelmed by their selection of fragrances and by the over-attentiveness of their staff. In the end, I am actually quite pleased with Sublime Balkiss: the subtle complexity and uniqueness of the perfume and the quality of The Different Company’s products and packaging.
The Different Company is a luxury fragrance brand that uses a high concentration of natural ingredients with the nose of perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena, who has created fragrances for brands like Hermes, Cartier, and Van Cleef & Arpels, along with his perfumer daughter Celine. Their fragrance creations are unconventionally unisex and each is designed to have a different desired overall “olfactory effect.” The Different Company has even been awarded a Green label by Greenpeace!

Nothing makes me happier than a good sampler set, and I was in heaven when I discovered that Ineke Perfumes has a fantastic and affordable sample collection of Ineke Eau de Parfum Sprays.
The Ineke Deluxe Sample Collection is extremely well done and packaged amazingly. You get six unique deluxe samples of fragrance (A-F), each mini spray bottle (1.5 ml) individually packaged in a little matchstick size box and then placed in a beautiful pull-out box decorated with lovely calligraphy.

What do books and natural perfumes have in common? Well, not much, I thought, until I discovered that Borders Bookstores now carry products by Pacifica, a surf-inspired brand of natural fragrances, candles, and body care.
Pacifica has artfully placed their perfumes in the limelight recently, their products garnering a spot near the front of Borders bookstores (and in Sephora stores), no longer sitting meekly on the shelves of small locals-only grocery stores. Keep reading for more on Pacifica’s latest fragrance, Avalon Juniper.

Meilily Product Pick and Product Photos!
Harajuku Lovers is an award-winning fragrance line by Gwen Stefani and Coty, inspired by playful girlish street styles from Japan’s fashionable Harajuku district and by Gwen Stefani’s backup dancers. The Harajuku Lovers fragrance line includes six unique fragrances bottled in sugary cute packaging, each representing a unique girl and a unique style.
