I have a thing for perfume oils and when I tried this one, I instantly fell in love with it. Starlet by Lulu Beauty is just one of their fabulous perfume oils. It is a beautifully rich fragrance with notes of white gardenias and musk. It was inspired by the gardenias singer Billie Holiday wore in her hair and until recently, this fragrances was actually named after her. What I like best about this fragrance is the musky note in it, it’s intriguing and sensual at the same time. I also love wearing this fragrance because it lasts quite awhile. They says the fragrance and I couldn’t agree more.
The most exciting part of trying this fragrance was realizing that it is a Seattle based product. When I did a little more research, I found that Lulu Beauty’s headquarters is 10 minutes away from where I live… just a few blocks away from where I grew up. I payed a visit to Olivine Atelier and got a chance to experience their other perfume oils and makeup line.
If gardenia is not your cup of tea, Lulu Beauty also has 3 other perfume oils. Marlena features top notes of Italian Bergamot, middle notes of jasmine and Moroccan red rose and a base of musk, French Vanilla and a touch of patchouli. Then there’s Gigi, which features top notes of pear, papaya and bergamot, notes of ylang ylang, gardeniaand and a touch of green tea. Then base notes of green musk, Parvati sandalwood and vanilla. Last but not least there’s Lula Mae. This fragrance features Italian bergamot with middle notes of freesia, African lily and gardenia. The base notes are musk and soft vanilla.
You can find all of these perfume oils and their entire line of beauty products at Olivine Atelier, right in the heart of Ballard or online. There is more to come on Lulu Beauty’s makeup and Olivine Atelier itself later in the week.
