 What is a Subtle Scent?

A subtle scent is a fragrance characterized by its soft, understated aroma that gently lingers without overwhelming the senses. It typically features light, clean notes such as citrus, soft florals, or mild woods, designed to create a discreet and pleasant olfactory presence. Subtle scents are ideal for individuals who prefer a minimalistic fragrance approach, suitable for close encounters and professional settings. They provide a hint of personalization and sophistication without dominating the space around the wearer.

How Do I Choose My Signature Scent?

 To start your fragrance journey and discover your new signature scent you will embark on an individual and personal experience that will involve experimenting with different scents to find the one that resonates with your personality, style, chemistry, and the memories or emotions you wish to evoke. To help you with this process  I have created a Fragrance Guide and Perfume Quiz that you can explore to help you find your new signature scent.

Are You a Minimalist?

Minimalist style, whether in fashion or interior design, emphasizes simplicity, clean lines, and a monochromatic palette with strategic use of textures and color accents. This style is rooted in the idea of "less is more," focusing on the essentials to create a serene and uncluttered space. In interior design, it translates into minimal furniture and decor, where each piece is chosen with purpose and has a place. The emphasis is on open spaces, functional items, and a neutral color scheme that promotes calmness and relaxation. In fashion, minimalist style is characterized by streamlined silhouettes, a restrained color palette, and a focus on quality and functionality over quantity. This approach not only highlights the wearer's personality but also promotes sustainability through timeless pieces that defy fast fashion trends. Minimalism, thus, is not just an aesthetic choice but a lifestyle, advocating for a clutter-free, harmonious environment that enhances well-being and contentment.

For the minimalist who cherishes a connection to the natural world and values simplicity in every aspect of life, these minimalistic fragrances are more than mere subtle scents—they are an extension of your personal ethos.

“Topaz is my favorite scent of all time. It blends with my soul. I don’t feel scented from the outside more like my own essence emerges. I just love it. And I get so many compliments on it - especially when someone is extra close. On top of that, Sage, her staff and their service are all tops. So wonderful to be able to say thank you and bravo! I smile every time I roll on my Topaz.”-Bari

A Glowing Review

"One of the sweetest, most satisfying things about this perfume is how it clings to fabrics, and every time my nose is near the collar and cuffs of my favorite sweater, that fresh expansiveness returns. It's not the same living, warm scent as it is on skin, it's the scent of frozen time. Memories on ice with a twist. Diamond is the perfect fragrance for Spring. The feeling of limitless space, perpetual movement, endless possibilities and all the fresh air you can drink in." - Caroline S.
