Day-to-night looks can be tricky to master, but it’s not all about mastering the art of the clothes. Providing yourself with the key essentials in your bag is vital and will help make the transition effortless! Thymes’s Studio Collection, launching this spring, includes SIX beautifully scented Cologne Rollerballs to easily take your favorite fragrance on the go!
The collection includes six amazing scents:
Aqua Coralline: Pure water lily, delicately floral white cyclamen, and crisp driftwood
Jade Matcha: Sweet bergamot, tangy lemongrass, spicy cardamom, Tonka bean and sugarcane
Kimono Rose: Satiny rose, peony, and jasmine
Lotus Santal: Plum wood, patchouli, and spicy clove
Rosewood Citron: Fresh and woody vetiver, bright citron, and sparkling grapefruit
Tiare Monoi: Tiare flowers, wild jasmine, delicate osmanthus and ylang
Each rollerball sells for $19 and is available at Thyme's website. I checked out the Rosewood Citron. which is a seductive scent of rose and jasmine combined for a soft feminine scent. I first have to tell all of you that my mom is obsessed with the Thymes soaps. I asked her how she even knew about Thymes and she told me Thymes is a huge hit at the local upscale grocery store, AJ's down the street. It's her absolute favorite soap and after I smelled the scent in her guest bathroom I could tell why. Thymes is a a company that KNOWS soap, and knows what smells good on the skin. No joke.
I am SO not a fan of Rose smelling anything so when I saw "Rosewood Citron" I had a feeling I would hate it. Rose? Ew reminds me of my grandma's perfume. Surprise surprise, I really like it. As soon as I put it on my husband said, " Ohhhh what are you wearing? Smells sexy!" Usually I write my own description of what something smells like, but I stared at my computer for about 20 minutes trying to put this fragrance in words. Pretty tough. So I think the website said it quite well.
"This sheer, sensuous floral is heightened with effervescent sweet clementine and voluptuous cassis on a bed of satiny rose, peony and jasmine petals... finished with a creamy kiss of smooth, silken vanilla. Delicate but dynamic; soft-spoken, yet striking, it is a modern reflection of who you are... all wrapped up in one truly lovely fragrance. Extracts of magnolia, peony and rose provide a sense of tranquility, calmness and balance. Carry it with you for fast fragrance touch-ups that express your soft spoken, yet striking sides anywhere, anytime."
Yes perfect description hands down. If I had to describe this in one word, it would be "Sexy" I want to rename it, "Not your Grandma's Perfume" It's perfect for everyday and also perfect for a night on the town with your man. I love rollerballs because I can stick them in my purse, and each time I go to the bathroom I can touch up on my wrists and neck. This was no exception to the rule, this is the perfect touch up smell. I feel like I need 3 to carry with me at all times. It's very "soft" and by soft I mean it's not strong at all, so you can put it on anywhere on the body and anywhere around town, and it won't irritate or bother anyone's nose. If you're looking for a seduction type fragrance that can lure your man in, I would choose the Rosewood Citron. I'm so curious to smell the others, and I wish there was a store I could pop into to smell each of them, but knowing what I know about Thymes, they are probably all fabulous. This scent along with the others are available now at Thymes for $19.
