Etsy weekend shopping…….Earlier this Spring I reviewed a few of the Theme fragrances � Sarong, Mantra, and Song. I loved the Mantra and I still wear it frequently. I liked the fragrances in the roll-on container, because it�s great for travel or throwing in my purse. The Theme fragrances are made to be worn alone or layered together.
Theme encourages shoppers to purchase the sample sizes of their scentsin order to find their favorite. For $12.50 you can get 4 of the 2ml size sprays. You can choose between Sarong,Sarong Noir, Frolic, Bikini, Lotus Lake, Love Letter, Tehani, Seashell, Mantra, Song, Marisol, or Lilavati.
Theme now has their best-selling fragrance Sarong, a tropical vanilla scent, available in a glycerin-base soap. Or try the Sarong Rich Body Creme. It�s made with skin-loving shea butter and it�s available in a 3 ounce jar.
Watch for Theme�s newest fragrance, Charming Velvet. It will be available this Fall, 2009.

Theme Fragrances are meant to flatter the individual�s own style. You can layer them to create something unique or wear them on their own. They come in a solid perfume or a roll-on oil, both are the perfect size to slip into your purse, pocket, or makeup bag.
Mantra, a �sensuous honeyed musk,� also carries notes of spring florals. It has a powdery scent and it�s now my new favorite. This is a soft, romantic musk - I keep sniffing my arm, where I applied it. It�s very nice and only $7.50 if you purchase it from the Theme Fragrance shop, at Etsy.com. (They are going to be carrying it at their main Theme Fragrance shop, very soon).
Song is a �breath of green, and tuberose, and woods.� It�s a definite floral scent, but it�s not your mother�s floral - it�s fresh and zingy. My daughter snagged it immediately. (She�s always doing that to me). Both Mantra and Song ship in Theme Fragrance�s signature travel box.
The Mantra and Song samples were roll-on oils, but the Sarong came in a solid, like a little pot of lip balm. The strongest fragrance note was the coconut, but it also carries vanilla and �night-blooming flowers.� The scent was so familiar to me, but I couldn�t think of why. Then, it occurred to me that it smells like Summer. It has a youthfulness to it. The perfect fragrance to wear with a sundress and a tan.
Both oil and solid disappear into your skin - no sticky mess - leaving behind only scent.

On ne compte plus le nombre de marque qui ont détourné le nom de Barack Obama pour booster les ventes de leurs produits. Dernière en date, la marque américaine Theme Fragrance, qui vient de lancer un baume à lèvres au nom sans équivoque : O balm ah! Et pour en faire la description, le site internet qui le commercialise n�y va pas de main morte : « Répare, rénove et redonne vie ! ». Un peu comme Barack Obama lui-même. On attend avec un impatience de nouveaux produits qui détourneraient le nom du nouveau président comme, pourquoi pas, "GlossBama" ou "Glow-Bama"… (M.B)

Theme Fragrance - Luv the roll-on!
Life is busy! Theme is designed so you can throw it in your bag or back pocket. THEME, broken up, become THE-ME - your OWN fragrance. Every day should feel like summer or a vacation, just something special like having your own "love letter." That's how Beth Morrison, the designer of Theme Fragrance, describes the line. "I love it when my customers mix the perfumes together, like Love Letter with Sarong or Sarong with Frolic."
Beth's tips for fragrance are to be more subtle than brash. "I love it when someone smells divine, but doesn't knock you out with the perfume. Fragrance should blend with the person and create something special rather than scream. It's more enticing to have people want to lean and get closer for a sniff of the fragrance! I love the idea of spraying perfume on the back of the neck, or only behind the knees!" -- Beth Morrison
Theme Fragrance�s Love Letter is a fabulous update on a very, very classic fragrance. Rather than being straight rose with other florals, Theme mixes it with unlikely topnotes. When it first hit my nose, I was shocked- I wholly expected it to be very romantic and flowery, but instead, there are almost citrusy-fruity topnotes that quickly blend nicely with the middle note of rose.
Theme Fragrance describes it as: �Sparkling Rose Notes with notes of fall fruit and summer berries. This is a delicious crisp and modern rose fragrance.� I couldn�t agree more! It�s still got the romance and class of the rose floral, but the topnotes take it into the 21st century- like getting a love letter through email!
The one small problem I have with this fragrance is that it seems to fade very quickly on my skin. But fear not! This fragrance comes in two forms- roll-on and a small spray bottle, both of which are perfect for portability. I now throw the roll-on in my growing collection of �purse fragrances� and it�s quickly become a favorite of mine. I dab a bit on the pulse point of my neck when I need a pick-me-up: seriously, this fragrance does wonders for my mood. Just a quick whiff and I immediately feel classier, more romantic, and a lot happier.
Another plus? The price! A lot of fine perfumes run expensive, but this one falls well under twenty dollars: 9.75 USD for the roll-on and 15.50 USD for the spray!
I definitely recommend picking this one up if you love romantic fragrances!
If you're suffering from Postpartum Fragrance Rut (PPFR) but you're not ready to delve back into the world of $70 an ounce eau de parfums, here's a thought: Elizabeth Morrison's artisanal theme fragrance collection of hand-poured perfumes.
I will be honest, with little roll-on style purse-friendly containers and prices high school girls could afford on allowance, I was not expecting a whole lot. But hey! They're nice!
Personally I liked the gentle floral Lotus Lake scent, but grab a sample box - just 4 bucks - and have fun picking your own fave. Then come back for the full up spray bottle, which still rings up under $20.
Who knows...maybe it gives you an excuse to get dolled up and go out more often. -Liz
