Mixed Makeup: How to Find Your Signature Scent

Las_Flores_720x.jpg

 

Courtney Cohen from Mixed Makeup did a post called finding your signature scent, and I had the pleasure of being interviewed for the article!

 

To go more in-depth, I reached out to Sherri Sebastian, a Los Angeles-based perfumer with her own fragrance and beauty line, Provision. Using one of her most popular scents, Las Flores, she explains the complexity of individual notes:

“When I created Las Flores I focused on orange flower absolute … Because I wanted this note to have more staying power and read less floral, I infused the composition with ‘invisible’ layers of amber and dry woods, disrupting the traditional ‘top note’ giving it a more natural projection.

The result is an expansive, ‘non-floral floral’ with layers that seamlessly blend together to create a bright, natural, and sensual experience, all at once.”

 

If you want to try each of Provision’s three Eau de Parfums, checkout the EDP Discovery Trio. You can try all three and see which one could be your new signature scent.

Life & Style: Celeb-Worthy Swag

I’m so excited that all three of Provision’s fragrances were featured in the May 28th, 2018 issue of Life & Style Magazine as “celeb-worthy swag”.

 

Provision’s luxury perfumes are pleasing to more than just noses. Botanical essences found in the label’s bright and airy Las Flores, refreshing and sexy Resonance, and comforting and sensual Maitri lift moods thanks to their calming and meditative properties. It’s Zen in a bottle!

 

Love that! Thank you Life & Style!!

“Notes from the Lab” part 8: How to Curate your Perfume Collection.

                                                        5 Ways to Curate your Scent Collection

 

1.) Step away from the “fragrance descriptions.”  Don’t depend on marketing descriptions to determine what type of scents you like.

 

2.) Simplify scent categories — Try to first identify your preferred general type, then move on to more specific notes within those categories.

 

3.) Analyze less, feel more. Think back to your earliest scent memories. Ask yourself, “what does my heart say about this and how does it make me feel?”

 

4.) Create scent-free zones in your home.  Today more than ever, we’re surrounded by scents in just about every product imaginable.  How then, can one truly experience scent when there’s not a “clean slate” from which to compare it? 

 

5.) Curate your selections.  Now the fun begins!  Once you’ve identified a scent preference try to create experiences across all categories to support this.

For more details, read the full article here: ÇaFleureBon 

I hope you will be inspired to create your own unique collection–Curate on!!

Leaf TV Beauty Brief: Scent Vibes Are A Thing

Posted in Brands, Press, Provision by

I am so honored that Leaf TV featured Provision Scents in their latest Beauty Brief!!  I’m thrilled that the article was all about “scent vibes”.

Below is an expert, for the full article head on over to Leaf TV .

 

“Welcome to Beauty Brief — where we take a deep-dive into the industry’s top-rated skincare, makeup and haircare brands. We test them out exclusively for 30 days, learn from the founders and formulators, and let you know our 100% honest opinion. 👋

 

” ‘Scent vibes’ are a thing. It’s the reason you are drawn towards certain products, specific people and places. Scents can take you back to a specific moment-in-time. Sherri Sebastian, Founder & Perfumer of Provision Scents, says,

 

“Odor molecules are everywhere. We encounter more scents in a day than we’re often aware of. As a teen, I carefully chose products based on a ‘mood’ I was trying to inspire.

“Notes from the Lab” Part 6: Perfume Ingredient Alphabet (R-Z)

My monthly contributor series on award-winning perfume blog, ÇaFleureBon called “Notes from the Lab” finishes up this month with the topic “Perfume Ingredients”. Below is an excerpt, for the full article head on over to ÇaFleureBon here.

After many years of working as a perfumer, writing formulas has become second nature to me. I find it to be calming and therapeutic. When I hear “experts” talking about fragrances—their notes, the latest status of “naturals,” ingredient labelling, niche vs. artisans— my mind wanders back to my formulas.

Last month I shared some notes from my early journals when I began studying raw materials in 1991; their origin, chemical nature, smell, and even their taste in some cases. Continuing on, please enjoy the following review as I work my way through the raw material alphabet from hedione to phenyl ethyl alcohol.

Rose Absolue: Rose has been called the ‘Queen of Flowers.’  I can see why, due to its adaptability in compositions ranging from spicy floral, to green floral, to classic Chypres.  Extracted from the petals of roses in a time-honored tradition, variations of rose ‘absolute’ are produced in several locations including Morocco, France, Bulgaria, and Turkey.

A rose from my garden

Zingerone is a trade name for 3-methoxy-4-hydroxy-benzylacetone. On its own this crystalline powder is pungent and almost mechanical smelling.  Used properly in dilution, it adds a natural textured effect (a ‘zing!’) to a variety of fruits and is commonly associatedwith ginger.

I’ve enjoyed sharing my personal journals with you.  I hope you have enjoyed it too. Stay tuned for a new topic in April!

All the best,

Sherri
