Ascending Butterfly's Mothers Day Buying Guide Pick Sponsored by:

Better Scents, Naturally!

We are now launching our second gift in our first annual Mothers Day Buying Guide! We started with the gift of CleanRest (giveaway ends on 04/28), and now we are moving on to what many consider a Mother's Day gift 'staple', fragrance.

Our mom's are unique and selecting a fragrance to match your mom's spirit is part of the fun! Is your mom youthful and playful? Is she untamed and energetic? Is she spicy and exotic?

Let's avoid fragrance for mother's day becoming what ties have become for father's day, generic and impersonal, because neither gift should be! Fragrance should be as fun to shop for as it is well received by the recipient. It's just a matter of matching the fragrance to the spirit of it's recipient.

My mom is outgoing, she is strong, brave, compassionate and fun! So we tested out these products together! First let me introduce the company!

About The Cream Perfume Company

They work with internationally renowned perfumers and the local artisans of Grasse to develop premium nature identical oil blends, ECOCERT certified organic essentials, absolutes and pure plant and fruit extracts.Their perfumes are all phthalate free and contain no sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic dyes, triclosan, GMO, PPG, MEA, DEA, TEA or formaldehyde donors. Products are cruelty free.

The perfumed body moisturizers are 100% vegan, wheat and gluten free, contain no glycol, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones, synthetic additives or synthetic fragrances.

The world's best ingredients are used to luxuriously hydrate and repair your skin combined with unique fragrances to simply delight your senses. They focus on environmentally friendly packaging and overall eco-value.

The perfumes are made sans alcohol, which eliminates the need for glass packaging. And that's a good thing, the solid perfumes are housed in the most adorable environmentally friendly residual wood containers! The wood is from small mills that meet the criteria set out by the Forest Stewardship Council, whose mandate is to promote environmentally appropriate, socially responsible, and economically viable management of the world’s forests.
We started with CleanRest and now have 'Clean & Green' perfume! Ah, mom really will be proud of us!
We tested a variety of both perfumes and body lotions including:
ORGANIC Lavender écume

A premium organic, 100% natural perfume for true lavender lovers. Exceptionally clean notes of lavender from top to base with a touch of lavendin for the heart notes.
Notes from the Testers:
Ascending Butterfly: Goes on smooth, the perfume is a solid, so I placed it in the palm of my hand and warmed it up a little with my finger and then applied to pulse points on my neck, wrist and temples. It goes on strong and mellows quickly into a soft 'clean' scent.
Mom: I also found that the scent is strong and noticeable when I first put it on, and then does 'die down' after a short period of time, I applied directly to pulse points except my temples.
Both: Thumbs Up. Additionally we both prefer lavendar for the evenings and enjoyed the subtle lingering scent it left behind on pillowcases and sheets. (it only left the scent, it did NOT stain anything)
We also tested the Mimosa Bouquet (it's bubbly with soft floral notes) , Mango Poudré (it's fresh and powdery), and Ylang Ylang d'amore (it's exotic, it's warm and like wearing your favorite incense!) in addition to the lavendar écume (this one goes on a bit more noticeable than the others for some reason, but I am a lavendar lover so I was happy with that!). It's difficult to pick a favorite among the four I tried. They are very different, and match very different moods. We enjoyed them all and both agreed that the packaging really is hard to resist, it's just so esthetically pleasing! And the fact that's it's also 'green' makes it that much better!
We also had the chance to test a variety of the body lotions as well.
Lavender Body Moisturizer
6oz. Premium and naturally derived oils and extracts from nature combined with premium French certified organic essential oils to combat dehydrated, sore, inflamed and damaged skin.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Glycerin, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) seed oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Fruit Extract, Fragrance, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Xanthan Gum, Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B-5), Corn Starch, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

This was the perfect companion to the solid perfume, it goes on silky smooth, it is not greasy, nor is it overly thick! I found it very soothing. My hands were particularly dry when I tried this lotion out. My skin did drink it in, and I was pleasantly surprised that a little went a long way and also lasted a long time.
We also had the opportunity to try out the Rose de Rosée, and the Coconut Vanille scented body lotions. Again we both agreed that these go on silky smooth, not greasy or thin, nor overly thick. They also lasted well between hand washings. I appreciated the opportunity to be able to  layer the lavendar lotion with it's matching cream perfume!
The Cream Perfume Company is now butterfly tested and mom approved!

NOTE: Readers have asked us to make entering the contests and giveaways, faster and easier. Your wish is our command! We have moved our 'Today's Butterfly - Featured Site(s) of the day, which is where we host our giveaways, to the upper right hand side of the page. It will be located here from now on to make entering the giveaways faster and easier. Keep the suggestions coming, remember we also have a NING group with real time chat, you can give us your comments and suggestions in REAL time, how cool is that?

NOTE 2: Twitter followers: please remember you must also follow Ascending Butterfly using Google friends connect on the upper right hand side of the page for your entries to be processed. And remember if your profile does not have an email and you don't leave your email in your entry, we will not accept your entry. Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)

Are you getting the dreaded 'Your Entry Can't Be Processed' message when leaving an entry or comment? Before hitting enter, highlight your comment and COPY it. If you get that message after hitting enter and your comment is still there, just ignore the message and hit enter again, then you will get a screen with a captcha code, enter the captcha code, then submit and VOILA. If after you hit the submit button the first time, you get the dreaded message and the comment 'disappeared' no worries, that's why I asked you to copy it in the first step. Paste it back in and submit again. This has worked for me when comment boxes have glitched on me, and I hope it helps you too!
