Scent Menu

Indulge Your Senses with Spagirl Gourmet. Two of my favorite scents are Crave and Happy Hour.

Treat ~ Welcome to the "Land of Milk & Honey" with just a sprinkling of oatmeal and almonds.

Crave ~ Feminine, sweet and simply divine with swirls of warm sugar, dripping caramel and ribbons of cream.

Happy Hour ~ an intoxicating martini of luscious black raspberries blended with velvety smooth cream.

Exotic ~ Incredibly feminine, yet dangerously flirtatious. A bouquet of gardenia and white exotic flowers so incredibly fresh, lush and clean.

Sensual ~ A sensuous, sophisticated blend of warm sandalwood with creamy vanilla that appeals to both men and women and is instantly addictive.

Bloom ~ Melt into a melody of plums with a touch of jasmine and orchid.

Tropical ~ An exotic touch of tropical Thailand; creamy coconut and fresh crisp lemongrass.

Soothe ~ 100% Essential Oil Blend. Escape from the stresses of your day and refresh your soul with a blend of soothing lavender and a hint of sweet citrus.

Sunkissed ~ 100% Essential Oil Blend. Brighten your day with our fresh and delicious blend of sweet oranges, lemon, grapefruit and mandarins.

I'm Back

I know it's been quite a while since I've posted. The last several months have been unbelievably busy, hectic and everything else. Just two days after my last post, my oldest son was wounded by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. I will never forget that day, from the phone call informing me of his injuries to patiently waiting for him to be transported back to the States. My heart dropped to my stomach, I was worried sick and couldn't get to his bedside fast enough.

Our family is truly blessed, for my son is alive and his injuries will heal over time. I am so thankful for everyone at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC for their dedication to the care of our wounded warriors as well as their family members.
