wing and a prayer Bella review

Georges de Feure (French, 1868-1943), "Elegante pres d'une Source" by sofi01.

Bella indeed! I have received a bunch of samples from A Wing and a Prayer natural perfumes, and I was stuck by the simple beauty of this lovely herbal/citrus/floral.

Verbena dominates—I get that sharp twinge of freshness you get when you brush or rub the leaves of the lemon verbena plant, married to a bright citrus topnote. Later on, Bella becomes less herbaceous and more floral, rounding out and opening up to a delicate rose-verbena fragrance that smells very fresh and true to life. I actually feel as if I were in a garden when I wear this.

I also have to say, I have NEVER seen packaging as beautiful as this. I took pics and I want you all to see how much care and love these perfumers put into their work.

Every element of the multi-part package was carefully, lovingly, and beautifully wrapped, and it came complete with ribbon and lovely, expensive note, hand-written, of course, because this niche company does things in style……

The main event, Tallulah B, was wrapped in an adorable little gauze bag, blue tissue paper, and ornamented with a little silver hummingbird….

Adorable!

  3. I'm a sucker when it comes to beautiful presentation, that is definately the icing on the cake. When you receive perfume it should alwyas be like opening a present from a loved one.

  4. They really go all out, don't they? I loved the packaging, especially the polka-dot drawstring bag.

    I really like Tallulah B2...such a pretty scent!

  5. I agree with JoanElaine - no perfume could possibly surpass the exquisiteness of that polka-dot drawstring bag!

  6. Ooh, sounds lovely... if it's even HALF as lovely as that de Feure illustration, there may be a danger of a swooning epidemic. :)
