Vinci & Rakos



Most people think of Spring as the transition time when the effects of the Winter cold, wind and indoor heat have left their skin feeling dry, dehydrated and even flaky.  Living in Southern California, we are also experiencing weather in the 90's which has its own dehydrating effects on the skin.   Therefore, my Red Mountain Mud Treatment is the perfect solution.

Fragrance Suggestions  
for Springtime
These scents will help you embrace Springtime and all it has to offer with the emergence of new flowers and fruits and their scented blossoms.   
The 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.  The fragrance can take you all the way to Summer.  Boucheron type.  

An uplifting combination of fresh and cool citrus notes with a warm herbal base.  The ideal clean and refreshing scent for the man and woman of action.

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 over 25 years. 
Honeysuckle is a sweet, highly nectar scent with hints of green and fruity.  In order to capture the natural honeysuckle scent, other floral notes have been blended together to help create this highly fragrant, slightly passionate and spicy aroma.  

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.   

Sheer Ginseng Gold
In the spirit of the original Ginseng Gold scent but with a lighter blend of spices, amber and vanilla accented with touches of bright citrus and green notes.  Warm and spicy created with an uplifting twist and great for the Spring and Summer months and the daytime.  

Sheer Jasmine
Jasmine has always been considered the king of flowers and a favorite of all perfumers.  A fresh, floral, honey-like sweet scent with a fruity-herb like undertone.  Its aroma can be intense so Sheer Jasmine was created to be lighter in its delivery and elegance.   

Sheer Radiance 
Light, less intense version of the fresh and floral combination of spring flowers and powdery notes that makes up the scent of Radiance. Perfect for daytime or when you want to feel like it is always Springtime.

Sheer Vanilla  
More of a basic Vanilla - not sweet, more woody - and sheer in feeling and scent without any other predominant notes added, however, the blend has lots of depth and lasting power.  Many clients want a Sheer Vanilla so they can wear it alone or add 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 for everyone's fragrance list. 
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 but wants just a sweet touch of vanilla. 
Spring Bouquet  
Beautiful femininity, gentleness and romantic love created with lush florals of lilac, violet and tuberose and spirited fruity notes of orange blossom and citrus.  Warmed with powdery, woody notes of sandalwood, musk and vanilla to create a breathless, floral experience.  Beautiful type.

White Embrace 
A 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.   

*For those clients who are ready to embrace Spring, now is the time to experience lighter, and sheer scents.

*There are inexpensive ways to liven up your Living Room and Bedroom to get you in the mood for Spring.  If fresh flowers are out of the question, fill large bowls or vases with silk flowers in soft and gentle colors of pale yellow, coral, mint green and light pink to help capture the feeling.  You can also spray your favorite fragrance on the silk flowers.   


*Consider changing out your throw pillows to match the dawning of the new Season.  "Living Coral" is the Color of the Year according to the Pantone Color Institute.  An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.   


*Now that Spring has arrived, cosmetic companies are once again featuring lipsticks that are Matte in their delivery.   And, there are so many different versions of the color NUDE that everyone will be satisfied. However, blending a sheer coral over your Nude shade will help bring a little Spring into your life. 


*STILL HOT:  Your brows are the perfect way to frame your face.  If your brows have issues, you can fill them in with liquid, pencil or powders.  I found that powders are easier to work with.   


*STILL HOT:  Eyeliner helps create a soft, dramatic or sexy look.  I am a lover of eye liner and found that Almay's Liquid Eyeliner has the perfect flexible tip to help create the perfect line or wing.   


*Mascara will help brighten your eyes no matter what time of day it is.  And, at night, apply an extra coat of mascara to create a "let's go out" tonight look.   

*Keep using your sunscreen/sunblock before outdoor activities. Don't let the clouds fool you, the sun will still get through, especially on your face, earlobes, neck and throat.  A BB Cream is also the perfect way to combine sun protection, light color and facial moisturizing   
*Sometimes it is so hard to exercise outdoors when it is raining or you are running late.  Why not consider The Sanddune which is the most perfect exercise companion?   I use mine several times a day to keep me in tip-top shape and my balance in check.  I even blow dry my hair while on The Sanddune to save time.  To review,  Click Here  




*Men need to make sure that they are taking care of themselves all year long.   My  Herbal Invigorating Foot & Muscle Rub is one of their favorite products.  Great when used before putting on your socks and shoes or after a day of golf or exercise.  Why not give each other beneficial foot massages?
