Ilari Perfume + Giveaway



When Hillary Schneider, ILARI'S creator, first moved to New York City from the Midwest she aspired to find what every post-graduate, twenty-something seeks; to have fun, make new friends, forge an identity and just maybe... find love. It quickly became clear she needed an edge in this ultra-competitive world of New York City dating. She embarked on a quest to create her own, personal Love Potion Number Nine."

Donning a complex mixture of scented oil and body mist, Hillary was stopped in shops, restaurants, and even on the street with inquiries about her complicated and not easily attainable fragrance blend. Approached outside a downtown restaurant one evening, an attractive, fellow diner remarked, with what she likes to believe was complete sincerity, "I could fall in love with a woman who smells as beautiful as you..."

Hillary and the attractive stranger were married in July, 2009 in a very New York City wedding. Isn't that a beautiful love story? What a great way to start a perfume line!



Ilari Perfume ($65) is a roll on, which I love because it's easy to store in your purse and there is no leakage like regular perfume bottles. This is a blend of jasmine and sandlewood mixed with with a tang of orange blossom. I would call this a "romantic" flowery scent that should be applied sparingly. I've never been a fan of "floral" scents, and jasmine is my least favorite flowered scent. I wore this out the other day, and I got tons of compliments! Just a little behind my ear and on my neck lasted throughout the day and left me with a fresh light smell that many people were asking about. I realized at first whiff of the perfume it appears stronger, but it smells much lighter on the skin.



Final Thought: The Emerald bottle is beautiful, and the scent worn correctly is quite feminine and romantic. Like every perfume, this might not be for everyone, but I think it's a great smell for springtime! You can purchase Ilari at Ilarinyc.com or Barneys for $65.






The Giveaway: One winner will win a full sized roll on Ilari Perfume. ($65) To enter, just tell me why you want this and what special occasion you would use it for!!

  77. I love finding new perfumes and would only wear this when I go for doctor appts or tests. I have been disabled since 2004 so it is a rare treat for me to get a new fragrance. I have to make them last as long as possible so I save them for when I have to go somewhere.

  172. I love both these scents, and I'm sure mixed, they are divine! I would wear it when I go home to see my family for the first time in a year. :) Thank you so much for the giveaway.
