Auric Blends & a Giveaway!

I'll be the one to go ahead & say it. These days women don't seem to give enough compliments to one another. I mean sure, we tell our friends & family if we like their nail polish, love the top they're wearing or smell good. But a complete stranger? Practically unheard of!

That's why I was shocked when I received so many compliments from random strangers over the past few weeks. Wondering what they were all complimenting me on? Auric Blends


These 1/3oz. hand blended oil based roll on perfumes come in 40 different fragrances, with collections ranging from floral and fruit to Oriental and fresh. Not to mention the roll on applicator makes it easy to apply the perfume to your pulse points, which makes the scent last longer. 

The folks from Auric Blends were kind enough to send me a set of their top sellers. And I have to say, I can see why they are. (Especially if we're considering compliments from random strangers that resulted in full blown conversation for 1-2 min.)


Egyptian Goddess
The #1 fragrance, Egyptian Goddess is a muck like non other. While still keeping the tone of the musk, it also has soft floral notes & what seems like a touch of baby powder. 


Love
This one was my favorite. Love has the same elements as Egyptian Goddess, but with the addition of white amber which gives it a spicy undertone.

Amber Patchouly
As soon as I smelled the aroma of Amber Patchouly, I knew I had smelled it somewhere else before. The unmistakable earthiness of the patchouly with the spice of the amber, gives it a deep warmth that is hard to forget. 


Honey Almond
Honey Almond starts with the distinct aroma of almonds, but slowly transitions to the sweetness of honey. The subtlety of the layering leaves behind a refreshing softness. 

Auric Blends also carries perfume solids, a Naturals line, a bevy of items for their Egyptian Goddess & Love collections, along with Henna Body Art & Incense.


I received a few Fire Goddess incense sticks & loved them. I haven't burned incense for many years, so I didn't take a picture of my clever "holder" (or complete lack of). But I think I'll have to remedy that in the near future & get a new one (& more Fire Goddess). It has an undertone almost like Egyptian Goddess, which stuck around a lot more than I had expected it to, leaving me pleasantly surprised. 

Want the chance to try Auric Blends for yourself?
