If you are looking for a holiday gift idea that gives back, you may want to ask for or give girlie to one or more or your girlie friends. I tested the fragrance and I think it would be perfect to give to anyone who likes Opium or a spicy-floral fragrance.
And what is the "give back" part? Half of all sales will be donated to benefit the children who are attending The Man-Rod Academy in Lamu, Kenya. That's not "a portion of the proceeds" but that's "half" which really is a big contribution! (It sells for $98.) So you can feel as good about giving this fragrance as those receiving it will!
Since I am not a fragrance expert, here is a more complete description of the fragrance:
girlie… the indie fragrance by debraRodman presents a provocative look the eternal feminine state of being girlie. girlie is tough and tender, sweet and sexy, carefree and coquettish – it is the freedom to decide. Each layer of scent has been carefully fused to paint the impression of a woman who equally loves her femininity as her edge, her seduction as her independence, her sexiness as her innocence. The result is a modern yet classic scent built on ancient ingredients with dark and mystical tones to evoke energy and mystery.
With the warming sparkle of oriental zests that voluptuously blend rare floral and woody tones, girlie captivates and allures. The pulsating heat from Clove Buds meets the luxurious notes of Turkish Rose, Egyptian Jasmine and Chinese Magnolia to spellbind those in her wake. Above all, the rare precious Oud coats the balsamic notes of Benjoin, Labdanum and Myrrh with exacting intrigue while Amber, Vanilla and Musk keep girlie fresh and infectious. girlie is made in France and was developed by Pierre Bourdon of Fragrance Resources.
girlie is available exclusively at girliebydebrarodman.com
