"TAKE MANDY AFTEL WITH YOU"- The Letter (review)

Posted by Felicia M Hazzard 31 July, 2011

                         Advice to two Ivy League students:
                              Take Mandy Aftel with you

 
I have two very good friends whose daughters will be attending Harvard and Princeton Universities this fall. What I didn’t know is that Diane and Kimberly are big Mandy Aftel fans!   

Word got out that I had some samples of Mandy’s products and I was contacted by Diane asking if she and Kimberly could try them.


“Sure that is no problem”, I replied and shipped them off to the east coast where they live. Diane asked me what I would advise them to wear of Mandy’s products. Diane continued to explain that they will be among some of the brightest students in the world and they wanted the finest products for two of the finest universities in the land.


So, I thought the best way to handle this is with a letter. My letter to Diane and Kim on advice on Life and why they should take Aftelier Perfumes’ Pink Lotus Perfume, Chocolate and Saffron Body Oil and Rain Perfumed Bath Oil with them to school.






Dear Diane & Kim,
I am so proud of your accomplishments! You both have certainly grown to be such lovely and smart young ladies. Harvard University and Princeton University are blessed to have you in their wonderful midst.


Mandy Aftel
I know you both are busy gathering items to take with you to school but I have a few items that I would like for you to take. They are made from a Master  Perfumer who is quite accomplished in her profession and admired by many worldwide. So, my advice is to take Mandy Aftel to school with you.


I do not mean this literally but Mandy creates awe-inspiring perfumes, bath and body products that have met the challenge and she is the 2011 FIFI AWARD FINALIST for Indie Perfumes, the first ever in the history to be nominated for such  prestigious award from the Fragrance Foundation.


Diane and Kim, you are no strangers to success in your own right and for that reason that is why you both were accepted to two fine institutions. So, I thought you should take products that represent YOU.
 
First, there is PINK LOTUS PERFUME. It is part of the chypre family of fragrance notes. The reason I love it is because it has orange in it and it is centered on lotus which stems back to Ancient Egypt. The scent is enduring, delightful and it has a very pretty orangery-pink color. Ladies, what is equally impressive is the beautiful French flacon pendant that you can have filled with PINK LOTUS and this gives you two ways of wearing this perfume.


Next, is the delicious scent of chocolate interwoven  with the world’s most expensive spice, Saffron into romantic body oil. CHOCOLATE and SAFFRON BODY OIL is a beautiful blend that will glide easily and smoothly on your skin without the greasy feel.


This will be great to use after you come from the gym to relief some of the stress after an exam!


Lastly, but definitely one of the beauty regimen for the morning is to add a few drops of RAIN    PERFUMED BATH OIL in your bath. After you press the snooze button for the third time and you still don’t get out of bed, keep in the mind the aroma of a fresh rain coming from the sky quiet and pure that is sweetened with ravensara and chamomile. Now, I got your attention! Let’s proceed with running water from the faucet and plop you are there. See what I told you. It so good for your skin as it soaks in leaving your skin scented, smooth and glossy.


Congratulations Di and Kim! You are official graduates of the Mandy Aftel school of AFTELIER PERFUMES.


Okay ladies, now that you know what to bring to school. I will let you go to finish packing and once again, Congratulations and see, bringing Mandy Aftel with you to school is not a bad idea.

Love,
Felicia

  2. Thank you Felicia, I am really touched by your charming review! Of course I appreciate your lofty Ivy League venue for my fragrances, but I also love the simple idea of having things I make providing comfort and pleasure to people away from home. - Mandy Aftel

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!
