The Art of Inspiration

Last Reply by TuesdayTaylor 1410570292.713 | Started by Fresh in Beauty Banter, Hosts & Personalities

A few years ago, Alina and I rented an old farmhouse with friends and spent a family vacation in the Aquitaine region of France. Little did I know that this trip would provide the inspiration for my newest fragrance creation. It was one of those magical evenings in the close medieval town of Penne. The sun was igniting the horizon and the air was lush and velvety. We were strolling along beautiful narrow streets to this amazing sanctuary that was over a thousand years old to listen to a soprano perform Ave Maria. As I passed by one of the houses, the intoxicating scent of honeysuckle stopped... Continue Reading

Crème Ancienne Soft Cream

Started by Fresh in Beauty Banter, Hosts & Personalities 1398952858.61

The spirit of Crème Ancienne is rooted in innovation, as it's inspired by the world’s first cold cream—arguably one of the most innovative beauty products. While doing research in my lab in France, I came across an ancient book that contained this unique formulation developed in the 2nd century by Claudius Galenus. He created a variety of his own treatments, among them this cold cream. Because the original Crème Ancienne is exceptionally rich, we wanted to pursue this level of innovation to reinvent the formula and create a revolutionary texture. It took several ye...

The Ultimate Fresh Moment

Started by Fresh in Beauty Banter, Hosts & Personalities 1377539555.027

Whenever I create a fragrance, it’s always associated with a special moment in my life. Then, I take that moment and turn it into a short story. The story of Fresh Life Eau de Parfum describes an early morning swim I like to take in a beautiful pond outside my home in Vermont. During the summer, my favorite time of day is very early when the sun has just come out and morning dew still covers the ground. The earth is so soft and breathing beneath my feet, and I can smell the citrusy grass, sweet berries, and dreamy scent of cypress trees. There are also notes of grapefruit and lilac ling...

Fragrance Memories

Last Reply by Fresh Family 1375457327.93 | Started by Fresh in Beauty Banter

I can trace my love of fragrance back to my earliest memories. Growing up in Communist Russia, the only fragrance available was "Red Moscow." Only the bravest women would find a way to get their hands on a forbidden French fragrance, my mother included. When I was just 6 years old, I remember going to the black market with my mother so she could get a French fragrance. It amazed me how much she was willing to risk to buy the perfume. It was a defining moment in my life. I realized the importance fragrance plays in people’s lives and how it can instantly make them happy and... Continue Reading

It's absolutely essential to nourish your skin in the winter.

The year 2012 was a very important one in my life. I had a lot of great personal journeys and accomplishments.

My Inspiring Spain Vacation

Last Reply by Karena 1348084816.36 | Started by Fresh in Beauty Banter, Hosts & Personalities

Over the summer, my family and I took a trip to a beautiful town called Vejer de la Frontera in the southwest part of Spain. This old, partly medieval Moorish Andalucian town overlooks the Atlantic Ocean in the mountains near Gibraltar. All of its homes are whitewashed for a quite breathtaking effect. It was a very memorable trip for the four of us (myself, Alina, and our two daughters, Dahlia and Thais). Thais is starting college this month, so we wanted to make it extra special. Spain is one of our favorite destinations. We love the people. We love the atmosphere. We love the food. When we ... Continue Reading
