I really like independent perfume brands. I mean, who wants to smell like everyone else? I recently experienced the Santa Barbara, CA-based MALIA B. line of fragrances and these are not your typical ones found in a Sephora or Ulta. The brand sells the fragrances as 1/8oz roll on using only perfume oils so it’s a very concentrated. And it lasts on the skin.
Malia – orange and jasmine with a fresh top green note
Soul – pineapple, papaya and coconut
Luv – white flowers, gardenia and vanilla
My nose most resonated with the Luv because it is just so feminine with the gardenia notes and Soul really grew on me after a few wears! And each paper label attached to the perfume is wildflower seeded paper so you can plant the piece of paper in soil and it will grow flowers. Nice touch!
$38 each and all 3 sampled for $2 @ maliab.com.
