     Exploring the World of BALMAIN for Hair
       


       For the last several  months I have been researching the world of hair products. Since, I lost my hair to chemotherapy treatments in 2013 my hair has started to grow back and I wanted ways to find nourishing and enriching hair products to maintain my new hair growth.

          I also was looking for hair products that not only was good for my hair but smelled great too!

          While researching I came upon a hair product by the world famous fashion house, BALMAIN. I didn't know that BALMAIN offered a hair product, so I found an email address and I asked if I could get a sample to try and I would write about my experience with it.

          BALMAIN hair products division sent back a gracious email a few days later indicating their interest and would send a bottle at no charge.

          A few weeks later I received my package and after washing my hair the next morning I used BALMAIN Silk Perfume. I sprayed my hair three times which I found out that two times was more than enough due to the light and airy scent that blossomed into a fragrance spray.

        My hair wasn't dry but slightly oily which is best for my hair. There was no after effects of sticky and hardness to the hair. My hair was very soft with a brilliance of sheen. No chemical after effects just pure argan and silk proteins that worked wonderfully in this product.

       My bathroom smelled so beautiful and it filled the room with a scent of soft but a luxury scent that is good enough for a baby's skin.

       I used it each day and found my hair to be very soft and never dry. BALMAIN Silk Perfume is truly designed with the health of the hair in mind and not solely on its brand image.

       I usually do not write about major brand companies but I am more than thrilled to write this article!
I feel like I am the poster-child for BALMAIN Silk Perfume because it has done wonders for my hair after chemotherapy treatment a year ago. 

      BALMAIN hair division has a wealth of other hair products such as shampoos, conditioners, elixir,  hair spray, mousse,  brushes and even hair extensions!

      Its my mission to explore the world of BALMAIN hair and continue to being happy with my hair. 

     BALMAIN is a haute couture fashion house founded by Pierre Balmain. Balmain was born in 1914 France.

Fragrance News & Review

                           THE HOLIDAY SEASON
                            Glamorous Books of Scent      


Jan Moran

      'Tis the Season' According to analysts the fragrance industry is doing quite well in the form of sales this holiday season. By sales, I mean the niche market. According to a Reuters report in the December 14, 2014 edition of The Economic Times more and and more consumers are spending their money on quality fragrances composed by perfumers who bring the luxury world of perfumery a sense of value, pride and amazing talent.

   The niche market of perfumery is creative and each and every perfume that I have experienced brings its own story to the scent of creation.

   The fragrance industry to me is not just about the actual scent, bottle and packaging but the knowledge and innovation.  Which brings me to the topic of books. Not just any books but- fragrance books.

   I have learned and have admired so many of the bloggers and perfumers who have put their passion  and experienceof fragrance onto paper in the form of  a practical hands-on book, a memoir or a  fictional novel.

  This season, I have received emails from best-selling author and entrepreneur, Jan Moran who incredibly has written several books on fragrance and beauty that should not go unnoticed this holiday season.

 My first encounter with Jan Moran was in the year 2000 with her first book Fabulous Fragrances II: A Guide to Prestige Perfumes for Women and Men published by Rizzoli USA.

 I loved the thick hardcover book that features a blazing red cover with a gorgeous lady on the front of it wearing a beautiful red dress.

 I wanted to know more about Jan Moran and how her passion for fragrances became a book for us to seek as a guide to the world's finest perfumes.

Since that time, Jan Moran has written several best-selling books that reached the charts of the New York Times.

Scent of Triumph (A novel of Perfume and Passion) will be released in March 2015 from St. Martin's Press. Scent of Triumph is a historical fiction novel based on the life of a French perfumer during the 1940's.

 It gets better with the release of FLAWLESS (A Hostile Beauty Series Novel) Book 1 and the second book in the series with BEAUTY MARK (A Hostile Beauty Series Novel).

 Jan uses her rare talent to bring exciting stories to the lives of perfumer lovers and beauty product junkies a glimpse into the world of glamour that seems and suspense that would rivel any popular television show seen on prime time.

What a tremendous gift for the Holiday season and throughout the year to give a collection of books written by award-winning author Jan Moran.

I am now a published author and now I am writing about perfume thanks to my admiration of Jan Moran and how we can continue the love of fragrance by reading a book in our spare time, while exercising on the treadmill, while having a vanilla latte at Starbucks and my favorite after the children have gone to bed for the evening.

All of the books can be purchased through www.amazon.com and Scent of Triumph (A novel of Perfume and Passion) can be pre-ordered.

Books are a treasure and why not sure the gift of mystery, passion, intrigue and fragrance with a passionate person of the fragrance industry.

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!
