Many thanks to celebrity makeup artist Kim Do aka The Makeup Blogger for including my Provision Align Ultimate Face Oil in your story “Are These Facial Oils Really Worth the Hype?” and declaring it to be a new skincare MVP that is indeed worth the hype!
Here is the excerpt about Align:
I discovered Provision Align Ultimate Face Oil in the middle of winter when my skin really craved an extra drink. A cocktail of sweet almond, avocado and sesame seed oils create a formula ideal for oil cleansing, which, in case you missed it, is what we do now because regular cleansers are so passé. Just kidding; I love a good face wash, but cleansing with oil can be surprisingly transformative for both dry and oily complexions. Makes sense—oil dissolves oil, so an oil-based cleanser would naturally be better at clearing clogged pores than a water-based one (oil and water don’t mix). Oil cleansers are also usually free of the drying surfactants found in typical foaming cleansers.
What an incredible way to kick off the new year! My Provision Dream Extract was featured in Town & Country Magazine (Feb 2017) with none other than Prince Harry himself gracing the cover.⠀
“Ten years ago perfumer Sherri Sebastian was having what she calls an Eat Pray Love moment in Belize. Much like that book’s author, Elizabeth Gilbert, she met a healer in paradise who told her to put clary sage oil on her pillow at night if she wanted colorful, vivid dreams. All of a sudden, Sebastian says ‘I stopped thinking about sleeping and looked forward to dreaming’. Using fragrance to shift one’s perspective was on her mind when she created her new line, Provision, which includes Dream Extract, a room and linen spray built around fresh, herbaceous clary sage. Perfuming bed sheets may seem impossibly indulgent, but it can be functional as well…” – Town & Country Magazine
Thank you WWD for an incredible feature of my new collection Provision. Also featuring a quote from my fantastic Los Angeles retailer Ron Robinson. Here are some of my favorite excerpts:
I am extremely particular about how I scent my home and the products I surround myself with. I created this out of my own personal desire to have the ultimate experience in self care,” said Sebastian, who celebrated Provision’s debut with an event at retailer Ron Robinson earlier this month. “For as long as I can remember, I’ve been using fragrances to inspire a mood, and the Provision line comes from that. It’s the realization of what I like to have in my daily life for different moods. – Sherri Sebastian
My Provision Purify Deo is in this month’s (January 2017) Oprah Magazine’s “The O List”! On newsstands now! (I’m doing a happy dance of epic proportions over here). So, so honored to be featured!
“DRY IDEA We love this all-natural, paraben-free, nontoxic spray deodorant that’s made in the U.S.A. by a professional perfumer. Because sometimes you need a quick spritz of freshness when you’re on the go.” – Oprah Magazine ⠀
I’m honored to have one of Provision’s fine fragrances featured in the WWD article “Fall Fragrance Trend: Amber Waves”and to have been invited to comment on the rising trend of Amber notes this Fall.
“Amber notes are becoming more popular as retro-inspired fragrances continue to trend,” said Sherri Sebastian, a Los Angeles-based perfumer who is launching her own niche brand — Provision — this fall. She is spotlighting a trademarked ingredient called Amber Xtreme in Resonance, a star eau de parfum in the collection.”
That’s a bottle of Resonance in the bottom right hand corner of the photo.
Thank you Global Cosmetic Industry (GCI) for announcing my new collection of fine fragrances and natural, luxury personal care products. Here is an excerpt from their article:
Provision, a new personal care and beauty range, offers a grounding, meditative approach to luxury. “My dream for Provision was to create a product line that offers the ultimate experience—scents that you can’t get enough of, elegant bases with sustainable, natural, and innovative ingredients that deliver exactly what you need,” said founder Sherri Sebastian. “If my products help people to take a moment for themselves each day, my dream will be realized.”

Thank you WWD for featuring my perspective in your article, “Synthetics Are the New Naturals at Tranoi Parfums New York“.
Here are some of my favorite excerpts:
Perfumers and retailers agree that an advertised use of synthetic ingredients is a burgeoning trend in niche fragrance. This was the sentiment expressed by some of the perfumers and retail buyers at the Tranoï Parfums show in New York earlier this week. Speaking on a panel Monday, Eric Weiser, owner of Brooklyn-based niche fragrance boutique Twisted Lily, said that customers now are curious about the unknown, and attracted to products that are futuristic-seeming in their packaging and formulations, even if that means forgoing natural ingredients. “They are more fascinated with fragrances that surpass what you traditionally think of,” said Weiser. “What does a solar eclipse smell like?”
