A little while ago I got a very exciting e-mail in my inbox from a lady all the way over in Hawaii. Capi Edgley is the founder of One Self Organics who make their perfume using all of the flowers that you would find in a Hawaiian Flower Lei.
“When Capi was in Hawaii for her sister Gigi’s wedding she was inspired by the heavenly aromas found in the traditional Hawaiian Flower Lei. Since then Capi has been working with a talented Hawaiian Perfumer to create the OneSelf Luxury Organic Perfumes. Each perfume is hand made using organic flowers, plants and essential oils sourced from sustainable suppliers in Hawaii.”
As part of the Hawaiian Flower Lei Perfume Collection* you receive a beautifully wrapped eco-friendly box, and inside is a 10ml Perfume Oil as well as a 7ml Balm Perfume. The fragrances comes from a beautiful blend of Hawaiian Gardenia, Frangipani, Tuberose and certified organic Hawaiian Coconut Oil. The perfume isn’t a scent I would normally pick up for myself however I really really like it. Even Paul likes it and he doesn’t really like the scent of many of my products! It is quite strong which makes a change to most natural perfumes I have tried and it lasts around 5-6 hours which is amazing. I often catch a quick scent of it throughout the day whilst at work which takes me away to a lovely place, thinking I’m on holiday in the sun haha! I keep the oil in my handbag for touch-ups throughout the day if it’s going to be a long day!
For size references, the balm is in the same style pot as an RMS concealer/eyeshadow so although 7ml doesn’t sound like a lot, it is a lot! The 10ml perfume oil is in a rollerball bottle so it disperses just the right amount without letting any go to waste and is perfect for travelling – I’ll definitely be taking this on holiday with me!
Everything is so beautiful from OneSelf Organics, from the essential oils in the perfume to the beautiful gift box and the stunning logo. Capi has captured the essence of nature in her logo which features butterflies, leaves, dolphins, seahorses, trees and other creatures!
The Perfume Collection retails for $79.99 (around £50) and is available to buy from the OneSelf Organics website.
