Explore the fragrance- Attar Of: High Tea

So I have been promising for weeks now a glimpse behind each of the Royal Apothic fragrances, and I have FINALLY gotten around to the post.  I apologize dear readers for the wait.  I posted a sneak peak last week and showed an image asking you to guess where it was.  The Harrod’s Tea Room is an amazing space, completely over the top in a way only Harrod’s could do.  As a child, it was always a treat to go to tea with my mum on Saturday mornings after she had drug us around shopping. It was always a game to try to sneak extra cubes in when the adults were not looking and I truly felt like a grownup the first time I was poured a cuppa from the adult’s pot.  The smell and fragrance of the tea room was one I always  remembered and associated with carefree weekends, so I knew that if I could duplicate the aroma, it would definitely be in the line.  It took quite a few tries but I was able to recreate the aroma of rising steam from the pour of hot tea into a porcelain cup.  It’s an amazing blend of Earl Grey, Clove, Lime, Bergamont, and Cedar.  Here’s a little description to tide you over until the website launches…..

For over a year, I have been trying to justify to my accountant the purchase of Vivienne Westwood’s Union Jack rug as a business expense.  He’s not going for it!  I wonder if I could get him to let me spring for this.

I just found this amazing wallpaper from the same designer.  Mr. Numbers (Thats what I call my accountant, yes: to his face)  Can we please have this for the trade show booth?  Pretty please, I’ll stay outta Prada for a month, I promise.  (And yes, Mr Numbers reads the blog!)

So the purpose of this blog was to not only tell about Royal Apothic as a company, but share what inspires me on a daily basis. This definitely did. Enjoy……

Email from the universe

I always find it funny when something lands in my inbox, randomly and out of the blue, that perfectly addresses the day and give me just what I need to move forward.  This morning I woke up to a link to this commercial and it is just what I needed during this week of major transition….remember, find what makes you happy!

The simple things


Sometimes it’s the simplest things that make you smile.  This morning I awoke to an email in my inbox from my friends at the Keep Calm Gallery.  Keep Calm is a great site that issues small run letterpress and artwork from their studio in London.  I have quite a few of their pieces both here and in London and love everything I have bought.  I just snagged their newest print called “Kissing Checklist.”  It’s meant as inspiration and a guide of where to steal a few kisses!  I smiled!  I bought!  🙂

(Keep Calm should also be credited with the resurgence of the famous Keep Calm and Carry On posters brought back from WW2)
