My Favorite Holiday Sales

You may notice a couple things. One being, is that one of the last times I posted was last year when I did my holiday sale round-up, and the other is that I have officially changed my blog name to Green Beauty Trish. I made the name change over on Instagram and on my YouTube channel many months ago, but was reluctant to do so over here. But once I realized that anyone searching for scenthive.com would be routed here, I figured I should keep the new name consistent across all of my platforms.

And I do apologize for the lack of blogging activity. I still love natural perfumes and feature them on YouTube where my product reviewing energy has been focused as of late. Sometimes I do dedicated perfume reviews and other times they make an appearance within a broader green beauty discussion. But you can be sure I’m always weaving olfactory thoughts and impressions into my green beauty reviews!

So now let’s get to the sales that are happening this weekend! These are all brands that I adore and either plan to shop at myself, or have shopped at throughout the year.

Skylar Perfumes. Keeping it musky.

Skylar Perfumes are relatively new on the scene, and worthy of consideration if you are interested in delving into natural perfumes or if you’re like me and have been a natural devotee for many years now but have longed to bring some musks back into your life. Let me clarify though, Skylar is not 100% natural. Some safe synthetics are used, which means no phthalates and all of the fragrances are vegan and cruelty free. So purists might not be fully on board, but if you are open to this brand, you will find sustainable essences, gorgeous packaging, and a philanthropic mission.

Update + Guest Post

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a perfume review, and sadly it’s been because of my migraines. I’ve dealt with them for many years, but over the past two months I’ve had to keep them at bay a little bit more vigilantly which means curbing the sniffing of new perfumes. Thankfully, I find a lot of joy in testing out green beauty products and have been creating YouTube video reviews if you are interested in checking those out. I still plan on reviewing perfumes here on Scent Hive, but if you see a decrease in their frequency, you know that it’s not for lack of love or desire, but for the need of tending to ole noggin.

Speaking of perfume, I am thrilled to let you all know about my guest post over at The Greenly Guide. Keri was so kind to ask me to contribute a piece on my natural perfume journey, so if you are interested in reading it, please do pop on over. Keri’s blog is filled with informative resources and terrific articles including another guest post from one of my favorite bloggers, Claire of Rocks & Salts.

So what perfumes have you all been enjoying lately? I am currently testing beauties from JoAnne Bassett and April Aromatics and promise to get those reviews up as soon as I am able. XOXO ~Trish

Onycha and Seve de Pin. Natural Fragrances from DSH Perfumes.

My husband and I are recently back from The Big Island of Hawaii and while I feel like that island could easily be a second home for me, the Pacific Northwest is where my heart and soul are most at ease. In Hawaii, I indulged my olfactory needs with the Gardenia Roll-On from Enfleurage in New York City. As the name of this boutique suggests, this fragrance is made of gardenia enfleurage flowers, and it is exquisite. But upon returning to the cooler weather, something a bit more PNW appropriate beckoned, and I knew just the fragrances to reach for.

Anna Zworykina Perfumes

When Anna Zworykina first contacted me about reviewing her perfume line I was certainly intrigued by her. She’s a Russian biochemist (a PhD no less) who has been creating natural fragrances for more than fifteen years and I was not previously familiar with her work. Of course I said yes, and if you’re like me and you peruse Anna’s website, or her etsy store, you will see that she has a great many fragrances to choose from and admittedly I was overwhelmed by the generous samples she sent my way. Thankfully, it has been my absolute pleasure to have spent many months with the perfumes of Anna Zworykina, and I wish I could review all of them as each one is worthy of a dedicated review.

Amber Tapestry by Mandy Aftel

The first time I smelled the raw material of benzoin, I was flush with bliss. The earthy vanillic scent wafting from the glass jar that housed pieces of the resin was pure heaven to me. I was smitten. Even though that evening was over eight years ago, I can still recall the interplay between soft vanilla and dark soil and I wanted a perfume of only benzoin. Labdanum is another cherished aroma for me, and I was able to smell its raw material that same evening. Labdanum is also a sweet resin, but it’s richer with a leathery smokiness that begs to be worn on a cold night. It probably comes as no surprise that both of these resins are frequently used together in perfumery and make up the the backbone of amber perfumes, and Amber Tapestry is no exception.
