Thymes Garden Alchemy + Giveaway

My excitement level hit a new high this week when I noticed the neighborhood peonies starting to bloom. While I live in the city, I have a neighbor passionate about gardening and she’s turned the surrounding blocks into a beautiful urban oasis. Spring is the best time of year — with the daffodils, tulips and lilacs blooming. And now, peonies! The flower that almost led me to choose a spring wedding date (opted for September in the end!)

Peonies in bloom

Garden scents are exactly what I look for in a fragrance. Very literally — I’ll take the earthy, gritty notes along with the florals (hold the allergies, though) Which is why the new collection from Thymes, Garden Alchemy, strikes a chord, or note, with me. The botany meets perfumery collection is garden at its best. The three scent factions include Rosemary Sage, Wild Angelica, and Lemon Geranium. I’m partial to Wild Angelica, but am finding it difficult to resist the party citrusy, part mossy Lemon Geranium.
