On The Scent
What It Is: A bit of fragrance 101 for you here. Most fragrances you buy in stores have alcohol in them – basically a chemical stabilizer. When you use natural oils, you are getting a more powerful scent, and one you don’t have to worry about getting on your skin or in your lungs. Enter LURK, a natural fragrance brand that produces luxury perfume oil blends. All of their products are certified organic (a hard designation to nab in the cosmetic sector), and include sustainably extracted ingredients to ensure their products aren’t just good for you, but for the planet.
LURK has just released three new scents that are perfect for summertime wearing – and gifting! All of their fragrances are meant to be worn by men or women, and just a few little dabs can be enough to deliver a powerful bouquet of notes. BB11 is a distinctive, crisp scent layered with black balsam and ambrette seed. NST V7 is a fresh, sparkling perfume, based on pink lotus, tuberose, and citrus. And TRN V4 delivers a slightly more masculine musk, with tobacco and a trio of three florals. All three are great for tossing into your purse or bringing in your carry-on, wherever your travels may take you this summer.
Who It’s For: Your jetsetting spouse, to smell amazing no matter what time zone they’re in. Your beauty-obsessed sister, to add to her perfume collection. Your organically-minded daughter, as a nice birthday gift she’ll truly love.
