I grew up in a flower shop and spent my toddler days playing with flowers until I started school. My favorite memories are of fresh crisp fragrances when opening the ice boxes (as we called them back in the 50’s). I loved going with Mother to the wholesale florist and walking through refrigerated rooms and inhaling all the splendor. Trips to the nurseries for outdoor plants were magical. The woods, plants and fresh soil were a quiet respite from our busy world. Daddy’s vegetable garden was loaded with hot peppers we enjoyed. To this day, I pepper everything but dessert!
Creating my own perfume brought all these memories back as I selected my favorite flowers to complete a fragrance reflecting the most enduring moments in my life. A dear friend drew the flowers on the box representing several of the notes.
From flowers to peppers, my fragrance is a story of a young girl with humble beginnings. I am inspired by my pioneer 1950’s career mother and my daughter who owns a flourishing boutique while raising a growing family. Sharla eau de Parfum is my dream come true. To everyone wearing it, I want you to be inspired to make your dreams a reality.
May the memories you leave with those near you be sweetened by the scent you carry in the notes within this bottle. Live Beautifully!
