Gift Tip #98: TokyoMilk Crushed #32 Parfum & Surprised delayed

TokyoMilk Crushed #32 Parfum caught my nose today while out shopping. It's not a scent that I would normally gravitate to but upon smelling it, I decided to spritz a bit on my wrists. The parfum is a mix of  earth + moss, crushed herbs, wild grass and jasmine and comes in a beautiful black square bottle with white writing. Housed under the Femme Fatale Collection , this scent is sure to "brings the boys to the yard"...or something like that (smile). When checking out #32, be sure to see if another scent speaks to you. Just the names alone (Arsenic, Tainted Love, Bulletproof) are sure to make you give some of these aromas a second look.

Fun Facts about Parfum (or Perfume!)
*The first perfumes were made from spices and herbs like bergamot, myrtle, coriander and almond.
*Perfume in Latin means "through smoke"
*The first modern perfume, Hungary Water was created in 1370

Bzzzz: Remember the surprise I mentioned last week, well unfortunately it has been delayed but my hope is that I will be able to debut this fab surprise next week. I will keep you posted!

The Gift of the Weekend + Surprise

This weekend is filled with fun! I am excited to talk to a panel of college students at Queens University about career choices and how they can make a smooth transition to "the real world" and next up is what I am deeming "wedding weekend" where one of my great friends will tie the knot. So, of course this weekend post will be summed up in wedding pics! Ah, the anticipation!

Bzzz: I mentioned a surprise and I am starting a new "segment" if you will of the blog, where I will feature notables in the community, as they share a bit about their gifting life...and a little about themselves too! Be sure to check back next week for the first feature!
