Every woman needs a signature scent that defines who she is, but did you know that traditional perfumes are among the most toxic beauty products out there? It all started in 2008 when the brothers behind Harvey Prince wanted to create a healthier alternative to commercial fragrance to give their Mother for Mother's Day. Using only the finest natural and essential oils from around the world they created Ageless, the first of their fragrances and the ultimate Mother's Day gift.
4 years later, Harvey Prince now has a line of several different scents, all with a purpose like preventing cravings, enticing the man of your dreams, or appearing 8 to 12 years younger. This unique line offers something for everyone! Each fragrance is formulated without phthalates, parabens, sulfates, benzene, GMOs or triclosan. Their products are also 100% cruelty free and made in the USA. They are also hypoallergenic.
I chose their original scent, Ageless, because the description and the notes sounded right up my alley. With notes like Pink Grapefruit, Pomegranate, Mango, Jasmine, Tuberose, Ylang Ylang, and Sandalwood this fragrance is fresh, bright, and clean. The Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago has conducted studies that find pink grapefruit and mango to be the olfactory antidote to aging. The fruity and citrus scents help disguise the scent of aging which is caused by the breakdown of fatty acids. Ageless was designed to make you feel and smell 8-12 years younger.
I can't touch on the subject of appearing 8-12 years younger because if that was the case I would appear to be somewhere between 12 and 16 years old, and that would just be plain weird. I'm lucky if people think I'm 19 or 20, since I look very young. Science aside, this perfume is fresh, cheerful, and uplifting. It is very feminine without being too overpowering or strong. This fragrance lasts all day and provides a delightful dose of fruity and floral. It smells young, but not in a little girl type of way. It's young but still age appropriate.
I even got to try a sampleof Flirt, their newest scent, and Yogini. Flirt is a delicious combination of Lavender, Pumpkin Pie, Citrus, Jasmine, Freesia, Ylang Ylang, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, and Amber. Flirt is the perfect name for this scent as it is very flirty and fun. It is somewhat floral and slightly spicy. Yogini is not my cup of tea but does smell nice.
I also want to briefly talk about the bottle and the gorgeous simplicity of it - it would make a lovely addition to any vanity or dressing table.
