Recently, I discovered Thymes, a very girly company that sells paraben-free body care and home fragrance products. It was love at first sight.
What I love most about this company is how they package their products. Inspired by nature, Thymes uses bright colors and emits a sophisticated charm. I don’t plan to keep these products in my cupboard—I plan to set them out in the open as decoration.
For those of you who love roses and everything to do with roses, try the Kimono Rose collection. It’s a mixture of sweet clementine, cassis, rose, peony, jasmine and vanilla fragrances. I was able to try this collection’s body crème and aromatic candle. I also tried a few products from the Naia collection: the Naia hand lotion, the Naia aromatic candle and the Naia home fragrance mist. This collection, which has a very clean smell, uses a mixture of water lily, citrus and lychee fragrances.
Both candles look and smell high-end and the lotions absorb into your skin well, leaving fingers soft to the touch. The company uses essential oils instead of synthetic fragrances, which is a big bonus. Also, they develop all of the fragrances in their own lab by chemists who are exclusively woman, which Thymes says gives "them invaluable insight into what other women look for in skin, body and home care." I’m eager to try Eucalyptus, Wild Ginger, and their newest fragrance, Moonflower.
These products would make an excellent gift, or, if you’re feeling a little selfish, indulge in some yourself. I highly recommend it.
