A bracelet? Perfume? Which is it…it’s BOTH! Whether you’re looking to treat yourself or buy a gift for someone else, this little beauty packs 2 gifts into one! Allow me to introduce you to the Perfume Bracelet by Lisa Hoffman.
I first discovered this bracelet through one of my blogging friends, Amy Farrell, when she shared a review for it on her blog a few weeks ago.
I’m a total accessories girl and love a pretty beaded bracelet, but to also have a little secret stash of perfume…I LOVED the idea!
I quickly hopped on the site Amy provided only to be disappointed that the shipping to the US from the UK was about $70-$80 (seriously??). I commented on her post saying how much I liked it and that I wish shipping was cheaper. Well..talk about awesome customer service…the store that worked with Amy found me on Twitter and sent me a message to tell me the designer was based in the US and I could find it online here if I wanted to order one.
I did a Google search and the only place I could find it was on HSN.com (yep, folks, that’s the Home Shopping Network). I’ve never ordered anything from the Home Shopping Network, nor do I watch their broadcast (nothing against the Home Shopping Network, but I have too many TV shows I’m addicted to, so I tend to focus on those!), but what the heck, there’s always a first for everything, right?!
There are many different varieties to choose from…different beads, different finishes on the little charm that holds the perfume beads, and even different scents. Check out Lisa Hoffman’s site for more options and to see her entire collection.
What’s a girl to do with so many options?!?
I ordered two bracelets…
The shopping gods were certainly on my side and one of the bracelets that I loved, while $69 for the single bracelet and perfume beads, was included in a gift set containing the bracelet, the perfume beads, AND a bottle of perfume! It was on clearance at the time for $29 (which made me wonder…was anyone actually buying the bracelet on it’s own at $40 more??).
For my second bracelet, I ordered a chunky silver chain with a rhinestone charm. It was also a gift set and came with six different jars of scented beads so I could sample some of the others.
So how do these work? Let me show you!
Perfume Bracelets – How it Works
It’s really quite simple, folks.
There’s a little clasp that holds the perfume bead charm to the bracelet. Just unhook that to remove the charm.
Now, just pop it open and fill it with the scented beads of your choice.
Close it and use the clasp to reattach it to your bracelet!
Out of the six different scents I received, Tuscan Fig was my favorite! I’m not quite sure how to describe it, but it’s light and not overpowering. Part of me wants to try mixing some of the different beads together to see if I can come up with even more unique scent options!
And if you’re not into perfume, or the particular scents they offer, you could leave the beads out and just sport the beautiful bracelets with an empty charm! I won’t tell anyone…it’ll be our secret!
What do you think? Can you see yourself forgoing the bottle perfume in favor of these little beads? Leave me a comment and let me know!
