29 Apr A Lasting Scent
Look no further for long lasting perfumes. House of Rose makes them and they last more than twice as long as the other perfumes. The secret is simple. They contain no alcohol which causes quick evaporation. Instead they use a base that is actually good for your skin. They also contain laboratory certified human pheromones, which are attractants. Harrods of London pipes them through their store HVAC system to encourage customers to feel good…and make more purchases. House of Rose buys from the same manufacturer as Harrods.
Owner, Jane Langdon, started her business because her favorite Crabtree & Evelyn perfume was discontinued and she couldn’t find another. After studying chemistry and being schooled in perfumery, she mixed her own. Soon after, people began to ask her what she was wearing and House of Rose began as an internet business with one rose perfume. E mail poured in asking her to make other floral perfumes and they now offer many others including Azalea, Carnation, Freesia, Gardenia, Honeysuckle, Hydrangea, Lavender, Lilac, Lily of the Valley, Magnolia, Orchid, and Violet.
Men also began asking, so Autumn, Bayberry, Bay Rum, Citrus Spice, New Spice, Fireside, Lemon Grass, Ocean, Sandalwood and Sea Breeze were created. To her surprise, half the orders were from women who wanted a fresh or spicy scent. Her sons asked her to make some fun scents so she surveyed teens across the country and developed a line called “Scent Bent” just for them. There are 29 flavors including Baby Powder, Bubble Gum, Chocolate Mint, Fresh Cotton. Strawberry and Tangerine. As Jane says, “Keep your perfume, business and life simple.”
