Scents of the Holiday Part II

Posted by Felicia M Hazzard 15 December, 2010

           An Old- Fashioned Sweet Christmas

     My aunt, Grace gave me a recipe several years ago called the Christmas Cake. This recipe was very similar to the famous, Red Velvet Cake with the exception of a few ingredients.

       The Christmas Cake is one of the most delicious and beautiful looking cakes, I have seen in a long time.
       When I think of Red Velvet Cake, I immediately think of decadence and luxury. There is a story behind, the Red Velvet Cake that is sort of an urban legend. According to legend both Canada and the United States have laid claim to its origin. The recipe comes from the famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel and a customer was charged $350 US for the recipe.

    Whether this is true or just a legend, we call all agree that Red Velvet Cake is indeed the best!

    The Dirty House Wife of New Hampshire,is owned by Tanya Malcolm offers a line of essential oils in perfume, soap, lip balm and skin care. I was sold simply on the names of these products. I chose several items to review from the Sweet Spot Collection.It is a collection for candy and sweet lovers and simply delectable!

   Red Velvet Perfume Artisan Oil is made with high quality phthalate free fragrances and blended in coconut oil. Red Velvet Perfume Artisan Oil has a cake essence with familiar aromas of mild cocoa, buttermilk and topped with rich cream cheese frosting. It not only smells delicious but it is good for the skin and will linger for hours.


   Red Velvet Perfume Artisan Oil comes in a roll on bottle and weighs 30 fluid ounces for $8.00

  Red Velvet Honey and Mango Butter Soap is filled with the aroma of a luscious Christmas dessert with a twist of honey and mango for the healthy conscious individuals. It looks so real that you just want to take a fork and eat up.

  Red Velvet Honey and Mango Butter Soap is $4.50

  Peppermint Cream Whipped Butter Soap with Camellia Seed Oil

  Peppermint Cream is a velvety and crisp scent. It has the cool scent oil peppermint with the conditioning essential of the Camellia Seed Oil. It provides a gentle and invigorating tingling feeling with a hint of sugary vanilla aroma. This is "cleaning in style".

  Peppermint Cream comes in two sizes 4 ounces for $6.50 and 8 ounces for $12.99. It comes in the color of "snow".

  "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire". These few words is the opening song of one of my most favorite Christmas album by Nat King Cole. Chestnuts symbolizes sitting in front on an open fire and talking with family and friends on a cold snowy night.

  The Dirty Housewife showcases another Christmas scent for the die-harts that need everything to smell just right.

  Spiced Chestnuts Artisan Perfume Oil is a sweet and spicy scent. It is made with fragrance and coconut oil which is good for the skin. You can not only feel the moment but smell like it too. It will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

  The essence is of roasted chestnuts, spicy berry, nutmeg, clove, warm vanilla sugar

  Spiced Chestnuts Artisan Perfume Oil comes in a roll on bottle and weighs 30 fluid ounces for $8.00

Spiced Chestnut Perfume Oil by The Dirty Housewife
  This same sweet and spicy scent is transformed into the Spiced Chestnut Butter Whip Soap with the additions of Avocado Oil and Avocado Seeds. The soap is equally great for the skin and the avocado seeds is added for gentle exfoliation.

  Spiced Chestnut Butter Whip Soap comes in a plastic amber wide mouth jar in two sizes 4 ounces for $6.50 and 8 ounces for $ 12.99

   During this time of the year, I love watching old movies such as "White Christmas', 'Christmas in Connecticut' and 'It's a Wonderful Life'. I watch these amazing actors such as Bing Crosby, Barbara Stanwyck and James Stewart who bring such glamour and realism into these parts that it puts me right in that scene.

   There is a company that loves those same great films of "old Hollywood". The glitz and glamour of it all is timeless and Starlet Glam, Bath & Body company from Providence, Rhode Island was created for the "Timeless Glamour for everyday".

    Red Velvet Cake Perfume Oil Stiletto Seduction is a concentrated perfume oil blended by hand with the use of fractionated coconut oil and jojoba oil. It consist of...

 Top Notes: decadent dark chocolate, strawberry syrup and red current
 Middle Notes: cocoa powder, buttermilk and sugar cane
 Base Notes: sandalwood, tonka bean, vanilla extract

   Red Velvet Cake Perfume Oil Stiletto Seduction is a mouthwatering scent of rich cake essence that is super light and absorbing. It lingers with a soft glow to the skin because it is not alcohol based that is drying to the skin.

   It comes in a .35 ounce for $10.00

  The Red Velvet craze is not over yet, try that same tantalizing aroma of dark chocolate, buttermilk, tonka bean and vanilla extract and put it into a creamy soap and you will get ...Red Velvet Cake Naughty You Whipped Cream Soap .

Red Velvet Cake Perfume Oil "Stiletto Seductions by Starlet Glam
  Red Velvet Cake Naughty You Whipped Cream Soap is a vegan paraben is a very light and whipped soap. It has a rich and thick lather that is added with avocado oil and sweet almond oil for moisturizing and conditioning of the skin. It is all about decadence and luxury this Holiday Season!

   It comes in a 4.5 oz for $8.00

   Red Velvet Cake is "lip smacking" good. So, in order to keep those puckers moisturized and smooth while attending Holiday parties you are going to need lip balm. I have the perfect solution for winter lips and that is with Starlet Glam's Red Velvet Lip Balm Shimmer 'Timeless Love' and Peppermint Patty Lip Balm 'Shimmer Shining Star'.

   Red Velvet Lip Balm 'Timeless Love' is a combination of Devil's food cake and Butter cream flavor oil. It is smooth and creamy that smells good and good for the lips. It gets better, Red Velvet Lip Balm 'Timeless Love' is filled with Cocoa and Shea Butter for added protection. No color is added, tint or sweetener but it does contain ultra fine glitter for lots of sparkle and shine.


  Peppermint Patty Lip Balm 'Shimmer Shining Star' defines the York Peppermint Patty. It evokes much like it with a cool taste that is creamy with dipped mint chocolate. Peppermint Patty Lip Balm 'Shimmer Shining Star' is enriched with Cocoa and Shea Butter for added moisturizing and conditioning in harsh winter weather. No color is added, tint or sweetener but for that extra sparkle and shine, ultra fine glitter was added to win them over at the glitzy Hollywood parties!


  Lip Balms come in 15.oz tubes with tamper resistant perforated shrink wrap at $5.00 each.

  These great products are great for after Christmas, too. Just think if you did not get the item that you wanted, don't fret order your own gift from The Dirty Housewife or Starlet Glam Bath & Body. They both offer having your cake (Red Velvet Cake Perfume Oils) and eating it, too.

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
