Hotel Costes is finally here! :)

We have been buried under requests for this fragrance duplication, and at long last we have a blend that is Ahhhhmazing!

Hotel Costes is exclusive, hip, over-the-top and located in the heart of Paris.

Their house perfume — in its deep red bottle — became an immediate cult classic upon its introduction in 2004.

We receive more requests for this super-complex, super-chic fragrance than any other. We have searched high and low for a blend we loved with no luck…until Now!  (If you’ve never smelled the real thing, you’re in for an amazing treat!).

Our blend opens with spicy green top notes of natural cypress, basil, cardamom, lemon, nutmeg, black pepper, and cinnamon oil. The top notes give way to a spicy floral middle of rose and jasmine along with essential oils of lavender and clove bud. The bottom notes of this fragrance — which create an amazing accord that lasts and lasts — consist of essential oils of sandalwood, cedarwood, and patchouli, sweetened with a bit of  musk. This fragrance is truly unique — it’s almost like three fragrances in one as a medley of bright, green essential oils give way to an irresistible spice blend, which then leads to a long-lived, soapy clean, woodsy drydown.

This fragrance struck me as different when I first smelled it, I immediately picked up on the notes of cardamom and black pepper.  I was not sure what all the fuss was about…until I put it down.  I could not forget it and was drawn back to pick it up and re sniff about a hundred times.  It is as haunting as it is beautiful.  I am a fragrance addict to be sure, but this is truly love. ❥

Due to the cost of pure essential oils this fragrance is a bit more costly to use in candles.  (Running about an additional $12.00 for our largest size candle-we have decided to keep the price increase amount to what will cover our cost only, so this will allow more of our friends and customers to enjoy this wonderful fragrance! ).

I wear mine in our new Apothecary style perfume that will be listed very shortly…stay tuned.  :D

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!

    You had me UNTIL the patchouli! Darn it. The rest sounds amazing, I am interested in testing this — how much of the patchouli comes across? Patchouli is one of those scents that overwhelms me, and not in a good way. I know a lot of people love it; and I am still curious about this scent. You know your stuff, so if you say it is good, it is good!

    You bet Missy. It is available, but not listed on the site at the moment. We have a new Luxury line coming out next week, so it will be listed there. This fragrance has a high concentration of Essential Oils so it is more costly than our regular Fragrance Oils. It is on sale as a new product through the Holidays at an introductory price of $35.00 for our dual wicked, natural wax container that is wrapped in a silk bag in our new two piece gift box. (reg $55.00) We are also offering a 3×6 inch pillar candle for $35.00 as well.
    Let me know if I can be of any help or if you want something different.
    Love, Laughter & Candlelight!
