Elizabeth W Perfumes and Tea Rose Eau de Parfum Review + Giveaway!--Ends November 22, 2011

Elizabeth W is a small workshop perfumery, designing and handcrafting their own natural perfumes, bath and body care, hand care, and fragrances for the home based in San Francisco.  I had the opportunity to work with them for this review and giveaway.

Inspired by nature, the seven scents that I received are each a sophisticated blend based around a single note. 

Citrus Verbena is fresh with grapefruit, mandarian, and lemons balanced with green notes.

Lavender is a calming melody with herbs and woods. 

Leaves is an utterly breathtaking mixture of soft woods combined with amber and top notes of green leaves.

Magnolia is overflowing with magnolia petals, saffron and sandalwood with mimosa and gardenia to make it more irresistible. 

Vetiver is earthy with citrus and green from the bergamot.

Sweet Tea will tempt you with oriental black teas, lemons, and almond honey.

Lilac, Neroli Chamomile, and Tuberose are also in their collection, but I can not tell you more without experiencing them personally. 

Elizabeth W's version of Tea Rose, the last Purse Eau de Parfum in the lineup, takes the traditional tea rose perfume out of the garden and into the wilds of nature with moist green notes, wild roses, forest berries, and hawthorn.  This is a haunting melody of sweet rose that will bewitch you as you lose yourself to this captivating perfume.  Because I fell in love so deeply with this particular Elizabeth W, I chose Tea Rose as the Purse Eau de Parfum as my choice for the giveaway.

Truthfully, I thought these perfumes were exquisite.  Since I'm a huge floral fanatic, Tea Rose and Magnolia were the biggest hits with me, followed by Leaves.  

On the same note, any of these perfumes, from the floral I adore, to the more refreshing citrus and herbals blends would make great gifts when you're preparing your Christmas list or to suit your changing moods.   If Santa is listening, I would love to find Magnolia and Leaves under my tree! 

*Disclaimer:  This is my own honest opinion.  No money was exchanged.  All I received were free products to facilitate this review.*
