The Muse’s Gift Guide: Unique Gifts From Etailers Part 1

Muses Gift

Hello dears.

It’s so very early to worry about the gift giving season isn’t it?  But I really want to get a jump start on Gift Giving Guides this year and one particular guide that REALLY needs an extra early preview is my Unique Guide to Gift Giving via Etailers.

I love Etailers ummm wait scratch that….I’m addicted to Etailers.  What are Etailers?  Etailers are basically smaller shops or homegrowns as I refer to them.  It’s normally run by a single person sometimes two and products are handmade in most cases from scratch.   These products include bath and body goodies, perfumes, perfume oils, and in some cases even cosmetics.  I love purchasing gifts from Etailers because it makes the gift giving experience really unique and special because seriously some of these items just can’t be purchased in any store or shop you’d find at the mall.

I’m also starting this guide a little earlier because many of these shops are popular and they sometimes have a lead shipping time which takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks (or more) to get your items since they are being freshly made.    I’ve personally shopped from these stores myself however I can’t vouch for their shipping time so please if you’re gifting someone do take the shipping time into consideration prior to ordering.   Again, this is why this particular gift guide is going up early.

In other news…

I’ll be doing other gift guides over the next month and into December.  Hopefully you’ll find each of these guides a helpful way to discover some great presents for friends and family.  If you have an idea for a particular guide I’d love to hear it, do comment and share.

Carol’s Daughter Pearls Gift Set Limited Edition Review

Carol’s Daughter has been known to capture my heart a time or two with their incredibly unique fragrances. So the case may be with the brand new fragrance introduced from Carol’s Daughter.

Carol%27s+Daughter+Pearls+Picture+019

Carol’s Daughter Pearls is one of the best scents to date I’ve tried from the collection. According to Lisa Price she loves creating fragrances that are unique and unforgettable and truly that’s something she does well. Pearls is a soft blend of lemon verbena with a beautiful finish of apricot and peach. The blend has a complex way of morphing from a fruity scent to a warm sugary blend to a soft floral with hints of jasmine, rose, and violet and plenty of warm vanilla and caramel too! It quite reminds me of Fresh Lemon Sugar but far more complex with it’s various notes. The scent is very warm, sweet yet nothing too crazy, and very feminine and flirty. I love the scent of lemons in my perfume and this is a heavy note of lemon with a nice underlay of warm vanilla, sugar, and hints of caramel which slowly morphs into a fine floral. It’s quite interesting, very unique, and truly a special fragrance. Even though the fragrance is an EDT it still manages to have great throw and lingers quite strongly as most Carol’s Daughter fragrances do.

I’m reviewing Carol’s Daughter Pearls today since Mother’s Day is right around the corner and there is a very special limited edition collection available that’s a steal, a deal, and something that will make your mum (or you…hey we all need spoiling!) very happy.

Available for a very limited time is the Carol’s Daughter Limited Edition Pearls Gift Set for $49.50 which includes a Carol’s Daughter Pearls Eau de Toilette 2.5 oz and a Carol’s Daughter Pearls Body Creme 1oz. The two items come housed in a gorgeous little keepsake jewelry box with a dome lid and a little gold clasp. I still have the creme and perfume stowed away in it but you can remove them and use the box to stash away your jewelry or small treasures as it’s really a nice, sturdy keepsake box.

Carol’s Daughter Pearls Fragrance is actually $45 USD so you can spend a few dollars more and get the gift set with the body lotion for a better deal. It also ships free when purchased from Carol’s Daughter directly. Sephora also has it in store and in stock.

Carol’s Daughter Pearls is very Muse Approved for purchase. Do head to your local Sephora to check out, I’m positive you’ll fall in love with it as much as I did. It’s simply a gorgeous scent. It makes a rather great gift for Mother’s Day but the Muse can understand if you want to keep it all to yourself!
