Valentine's Inspired Fragrances
couple holding
These Fragrances are client favorites for Valentine's Day to scentsually warm your body and mind.  Delicious and yummy fragrances where Vanilla adds warmth and gentle sweetness, chocolate adds a roasted and comforting feeling, sugar adds a golden but syrupy brightness and rain adds softness and romance.  Of course, Earth is warm and sensual but at the same time devastatingly fresh and clean smelling for both men and women.  Cashmere is comforting and tranquil with sandalwood and sweet mandarin.  And, Radiance is fresh and floral with powdery notes.   

     NOTE:  With the help of several of my clients, I am introducing  
                 7  NEW Fragrances, just in time for Valentine's.

Amber: A warm and powdery scent that exhibits woody, dry balsamic, somewhat tobacco-like notes.  Dries down to a slightly erotic, somewhat aphrodisiac feeling.

BoudoirThe perfect floral fragrance with a semi-oriental twist to the senses.  Starts off with a blend of fruity top notes of orange blossom, bergamot and apricot.  Expands into a sensual middle of jasmine, tuberose, lily of the valley and ylang ylang.  The warm ending of tonka, musk and amber makes this the perfect evening fragrance.  Boucheron type.
 
Cashmere:  Cashmere is a comforting and tranquil aroma made with a blend of sensual sandalwood and sweet mandarin essential oils.  Soft citrus combines with warm woodsy notes to offer an aroma reminiscent of a true love.  Cashmere sweater?  Why not envelop your entire body in "cashmere" from head to toe!
 
Champagne:  Champagne has always been considered the drink of the gods and the wine that sparkles, so why not wear such a wonderful gift to the senses?  A silky smooth and creamy texture and just the right amount of sweetness and fruity/floral flavors create the perfect sparkling blend, rich and full bodied.  See which notes bubble up and pour out of this effervescent and lively blend.  It is fabulous to wear alone or spray over or under heavier fragrances to add brightness and life.
 
Chocolate Cherries:  Warm, rich roasted chocolate has been mixed with the scent of Cherry Almond to help create the romantic feeling and desire of opening up a box of chocolate covered cherries on Valentine's Day.  Delicious and sweet!
 
Chocolate Truffles:  The perfect combination of a rich, warm chocolate ganache center coated with cocoa powder notes highlighted with buttery cream and a hint of coconut to add some brightness.  Roasted almonds and assorted berries are blended to add just the right amount of sweetness.  The aroma will captivate your senses and make you think of opening up a heart box of rich chocolates. 
 
Cupid:  Thoughts of the sweetness of our childhood full of wonderful memories and delicious "kitchen" scents.  Highlighted with notes of vanilla, chocolate and caramel brightened with fresh berries and honey, very soft and gentle but so inviting on the skin.  Scented perfectly for both men and women since each will find tasty notes that will satisfy their senses.  Thierry Mugler Angel type. 
   
Desert Rain & Patchouli:  Dark Patchouli, vanilla and woods with a touch of green, highlighted with water notes makes this special blend an afternoon delight!  Rich and dramatic with lots of depth, very sultry but with almost a soft whiskey dry down.  Man, take notice!  This could be your special signature scent.  
 
graphic-heart.gif
Earth:  A warm and sensual combination of white musk and earthly delights with a hint of floral accents.  It is warm and sensual but at the same time devastatingly fresh and clean smelling.  Both men and women find Earth arousingly exciting.  One musky whiff will have you coming back for more.  The scent of Earth allows everyone's personality and body chemistry to come through creating a more individual and unique fragrance experience.  Earth has been the signature scent of Vinci & Rakos * Who Makes Sense? for 25 years.    

NEW! Enchanting:   The perfect Oriental Fragrance that was inspired by the love story between an emperor and an Indian princess which is full of desire and smoldering sensuality. It opens with fresh citrus notes of bergamot, lemon, mandarin and rosewood, as it travels to the woody floral middle of patchouli, rose, jasmine, orris and vetiver making it very suggestive and enveloping. The sweet, powder balsamic base notes of vanilla, benzoin, balsam and leather help create the perfect ending for this enchanting and mesmerizing fragrance. Shalimar Type.
 
FlameA soft and sophisticated, romantic scent with lovely green and fruity top notes and a rich, floral bouquet in the heart of the composition.  Dries down to a warm floral and woody blend, perfect from day to evening and very modern in its composition and delivery.  Giorgio's Red type 
   
NEW!  Flirtatious:  The perfect multi-dimensional fragrance that is fresh and lively but also sensual in its delivery. It captures not only floral and fruity notes but adds gourmand ones to round out its unique appeal. It begins with the freshness of pink passion fruit, watermelon and mandarin with twists of hyacinth, tuberose, lily and rose rounded out with juicy sweetness of caramel, crème brulee and vanilla with perhaps some patchouli. The unique combination creates a very coquettish and flirtatious blend for the senses. Juicy Couture Type. 
  
NEW!  Flower Explosion:  If you like a big burst of flowers, both fresh and sweet, with a little spice and warm & sweet gourmands, this is the fragrance for you. This exquisite oriental floral blend begins with notes of mandarin, bergamot and green tea. The heart of the blend reflects a flower explosion with its main theme of jasmine, rose, freesia and orchids. The base of amber, patchouli and wood notes mixed with a little vanilla and praline help to make it the perfect evening fragrance as it surrounds you in its delicious warmth. Victor & Rolf Flower Bomb Type.
 
French Vanilla: The original vanilla scent in the Vinci & Rakos line of fragrances created with thoughts of sweet syrup.  A luscious combination of caramel and vanilla with haunting depth and richness, and very French.  Makes you think of entering a European candy shop and forgetting your diet.  Loved by men and women for over 25 years.
 
NEW!  Haunting Amber: If you are a lover of really deep and haunting Amber, this is the fragrance for you. Intense and warm amber has been gently surrounded with opulent white flowers of Jasmin and just a little smooth and creamy sandalwood, which makes this blend so deep and heavy. No sweetness in this blend, just dry warmth and sensuality. This is a unisex fragrance that can be considered strong and seductive and not for the faint of heart. Michael Kors Sexy Amber Type.

Midnight Rain:  A delicious fruity floral combination that releases its romantic and provocative desires at night.  Designed around delicious fruits, spicy florals, water notes and ends with very sensual woods.  Passionate and memorable!

football-hands.jpg NEW!  No. 27: The fragrance opens with very  
fresh citrus notes of tangy bergamot surrounded with aromatic lavender and sweet jasmine. The ending of a warm bouquet of powdery sandalwood and earthly musk creates a very lovely and glorious blend just perfect for the daytime. Tova 9 Type.   
 
NEW!  Opulence:  If you want to feel like a million dollars, this might be the opulent and brilliantly designed fragrance for you. A very fresh, floral and seductive fruity fragrance that begins with top notes of bitter orange, raspberry and neroli with a jolt of sweet orange blossoms that helps awaken the senses. The heart of the fragrance peaks with subtle notes of jasmine and fresh gardenia. The dry down base of the luxurious blend offers patchouli and white honey, as amber helps to engulf and pull the beautiful composition together with its warmth and sweet seductiveness. Paco Rabanne Lady Millionaire Type. 
 
Pink Sugar:  An adult's version of a child's fantasy.  This whimsical scent is full of the soft sweetness of sugar candies, cotton candy, delicious red berries, summer fruits and a touch of citrus.  Combined with warm vanilla, powdery musky notes and perhaps a touch of caramel to create a very sensual but playful scent. 
 
Radiance:  A fresh and floral combination of spring flowers and radiant bouquet with a hint of powdery notes.  It sparkles with its classic femininity and romance.  Developed as a truly modern and spirited blend of flowers with thoughts of fashionable Paris swirling in your head.  A client favorite for 25 years.  Paris type.

Rose PetalsFor the person who loves roses and more roses.  A very innocent and warm sparkling blend of vibrant and enchanting roses with a twist of passion.  The top is all roses but settles down to a soft, romantic blend.  A client favorite for 25 years.  

Sheer Vanilla:   More of a basic Vanilla - not sweet, more woody - and sheer in feeling and scent without any other predominate notes added, however, the blend has lots of depth and lasting power.  Many clients wanted a Sheer Vanilla they could wear alone or add or over or under other scents, similar to the way "Earth Parfum" clients use Earth - alone or as a base.  Sheer Vanilla is a basic necessity on everyone's fragrance list, both and women.   
 
Sheer Vanilla & Patchouli:  A classic blend of Sheer Vanilla with a dark, almost brooding patchouli creating lots of depth and richness, definitely smoky in its approach.  A must for everyone who loves patchouli and wants a sweet touch of vanilla.    
 
wine-glasses-heart.jpg Strawberries & Champagne - The scent of fresh strawberries has been added to the silky smooth and creamy texture of Champagne.  Just the right amount of fruity sweetness with almost a hint of honey and almond to create the perfect sparkling blend.  Fabulous to wear alone or over or under heavier more intense fragrances to add some fresh and sweet sparkle and life.
 
Sweet & Sexy:  Very unique in its approach, a combination of sweet and sexy with a twist of fresh floral note of gardenia, freesia, tuberose, jasmine, Chamomild and lily mixed with delicious fruity notes of pear, vanilla, apricot and mandarin.  The warm dry down of sandalwood and incense with a touch of cinnamon makes this blend a truly refreshing but sensual experience.  Mary J. Blige type.  
   
NEW!  Tobacco & Whiskey:  A very woody and spicy unisex fragrance that captures the rich qualities of warm notes that make you think of gently cut tobacco leaves with hints of oak barrel whiskey. It's smoky and spice-filled tobacco appeal is highlighted with soft sandalwood and rough notes of patchouli while the grain-based spirit of whiskey shines through the blend. You can pick-up the notes of cinnamon, coriander and perhaps even a little cedar and vanilla. Tom Ford Tobacco Oud Type. 

White EmbraceA classic and timeless French inspired floral blend dominated with tuberose and highlighted with notes of gardenia, jasmine, lily, rose and lilac.  Finishes with a smooth, powdery and captivating base to help embrace your being.  White Shoulders type.
 
White Rain:  Gently blended with notes of soft white musk, smooth woods and powdery heliotrope.  Delicate hints of green and moss notes round out this crystal clear water blend.  A clean scent almost like wearing nothing but softness. 
 
holding hands You Are In Love:  Memorable as the love that lasts forever.  The classically feminine and romantic scent was created with a beautiful top blend of exotic roses, oriental roses, bright roses, violet and jasmine.  Hints of a little spice and pepper, dashes of honey, sandalwood and ylang ylang presents a sensual and powdery finish for the senses.  As memorable as your first kiss.  Victoria's Secret So In Love Type.
