If you know anything about me, you know that I adore animals of all kinds, and I spend a good portion of my time and money trying to save as many of them as I can. It gives me great pleasure to introduce and recognize a company that advances the ethic of respect by not testing on animals for their products, Eau de Nous.
Eau de Nous is a new fragrance company that was started by the two lovely sisters you see below, Daya and Vally. They ventured out to create a series of fragrances that reminded them of their own childhood, and they are “inspired by nature, designed by passion.”
The creators behind this line believe strongly that "affordability should not compromise quality". Their products are very reasonably priced at $35.00 for a 3.8 fl. oz. bottle, and $12.00 for an 0.34 rollerball bottle. Also available, is a Fragrance Set (below), which offers all four of their scents in the 0.34 oz. size for $38.00. I have become addicted to rollerballs lately, because they are so affordable and portable. I find that they're a great way to try a product without too much of a financial commitment, while still getting plenty of product for your money.
I can tell you that after wearing this fragrance for a couple of weeks now, they did not sacrifice any quality for affordability. The scent I have is Bebé Breeze in the rollerball, whose top notes are roses and lilies. I wanted to see how long the scent of the Eau de Nous product lasted when compared to some other higher priced rollerballs, so I put it up against Michael Kors Hollywood and Marc Jacobs Daisy (both $20.00, but also smaller at 0.24 fl. oz.). What I discovered was that the Eau de Nous product was still lightly scented on my skin even after 6 hours, while the two other products were completely void of scent.
Bebé Breeze actually reminds me of my own childhood, which was a premise that the creators based their scents on. My mom always wore a fragrance that has been around for a long time--White Shoulders. I love that I think of my mom every time I wear this! They both have roses in their notes, but I find Bebé Breeze to be lighter and fresher, almost an updated version of White Shoulders. It's a sweet scent, but delicate and pleasant, and not too sweet.
Eau de Nous products have already made a fabulous start in their industry, attracting many Hollywood stars such as Mila Kunis, Demi Moore and Hayden Panettiere to their fan base. I'm no Hollywood star, but they can certainly add me to their list!
The four scents that are available from Eau de Nous are:
Bebé Breeze (roses & lilies)
Citrus Charm (grapefruit & mandarins)
Gardenian Gift (jasmine orange & cloves)
Jasmine Joy (honeysuckle sandalwood & jasmine oil)
