Vinci & Rakos



The last few months have been very difficult for all of us with regard to the Coronavirus and what the future holds.  However, Spring is around the corner and colorful flowers are starting to bloom, so it is the perfect time to relax and enjoy the new season........even from our windows.   
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.   

Sheer Gardenia:  Gardenia is a beautiful, fragrant white flower with an intense, sweet and silky sharp scent but can be too heady for most people.  Sheer Gardenia was created to help retain the pure, white blossom feel of the gardenia flower but to make it more wearable.  Lighter, softer with fresh smelling gardenia and hints of other exotic flowers blended together to create the perfect gardenia parfum. 
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 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 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 & Amber:  A warm, earthy and animalistic powdery combination created by blending together Sheer Vanilla and Amber notes.  Great to be worn alone or can be used as a base for other fragrances to create depth and intensity.    
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.  
Sheer & Warm Vanilla Sugar:  A warm combination of sugar notes blended with Sheer Vanilla creating a powdery, soft and slightly sweet experience.  Can also be used as an "additive" to allow other fragrances to sparkle and lighten up.  Another basic necessity in your fragrance wardrobe.  A client favorite. 
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 over 25 years.    

Green Tea :  A fresh, refreshing and crisp scent created with invigorating tea notes, a little citrus and rounded out with warm notes but with a slight uplifting sweetness.  A clean spa scent that can be worn all day long by both men and women.   
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.  You can consider a coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with softness.      



*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.   And, for nighttime, a Makeup Artist friend of mine gave me a Revlon So Fierce! Vinyl Eyeliner Pencil which I LOVE.  It's got high-impact color, waterproof, smudge-proof, and has a lacquer-like sheen.  Of course, my favorite color is black.   



*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, such as that morning walk around the block. 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   
*Now that we will be spending so much more time indoors due to the Coronavirus, why not consider The Sanddune Stepper 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.  And, 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?
