Product Spotlight: Provision Fine Fragrance, Maitri

Meet Maitri, one of three fine fragrances from my new collection Provision.

I created Maitri, which means ‘self love’ in Sanskrit to be a modern version of a classic Vetiver scent composition. The Eco-Certified Vetiver is just out of this world… the way it wears on skin is indescribable. My best attempt at translating the experience is to say that it completely transforms and adapts to becoming a sheer layer on your skin that makes you feel ‘more like you’, like your best self. Combined with fresh Italian Bergamot and classic Oakmoss, the effect is sophisticated, fresh, and most importantly invites you to be happy with where you are and who you are, right now.

Maitri was featured in WWDProvision Champions Self Care for Sophisticated Beauty Shoppers” in December 2016.

Kicking off the New Year with Prince Harry!

Posted in Brands, Press, Provision by

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

Provision Champions Self Care for Sophisticated Beauty Shoppers

Posted in Brands, Press, Provision by

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

Ingredient Spotlight: Grapeseed Oil

Grapeseed oil is one of the ingredients I’m using in my new Provision apothecary collection, specifically in Connection lip balm. It’s a luxurious natural moisturizer that is incredibly rich in antioxidants.

Working with this oil brings back many fond memories of my days working on a Vineyard in Germany. Before training to become a professional perfumer I was strongly considering a career in wine making!

It goes without saying that I’m really glad things turned out this way as I’m much happier making fragrances (and just drinking wine🍷😉).⠀

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 ⠀
