Loving…For Strange Women

In middle & high school, I was a fiend for Bath & Body Works. I’ve always been into discovering new fragrances, but at that time, B&BW was my go to for all things perfumery. My tastes have since matured (although I will still buy my beloved Japanese Cherry Blossom) and expanded, especially since I now have added a great variety of essential oils to my perfume repertoire. That is why I was thrilled to discover For Strange Women – a really cute and Victorian inspired boutique that sells hand crafted and natural fragrances, bath salts, spices, and other dainty materials. The lady behind all this, Jill McKeever, is also an artisan in many other aspects – she creates music, illustrates, and does graphic design.

Besides the fact that everything is natural, I am also loving the visual merchandising of this shop – the photography is so enchanting…

The bottles are so gorgeous…and I really dig that the bath salts are made using salt from the Dead Sea and the Jaded perfume is made using essences of Rose and Jasmine. I also like that the Winter Kitty fragrance is said to invoke memories of felines and snowflakes…Plus all the products are eco-friendly AND aren’t tested on animals. Gotta love it when you can smell gorgeous (cause that’s what I imagine these smell like  – not just good, but gorgeous) and help the environment!
