With the gift-giving season upon us, one is faced with finding something special for loved ones, and preferably things that they wouldn't necessarily get for themselves. Finding interesting things that will be treasured can certainly be tricky-- particularly for those need or want nothing.

Lisa Hoffman Beauty offers a lovely range of fragrances, but her line of Fragrance Jewelry is a wonderfully innovative way to enjoy lovely scents without actually applying them to your skin. Lisa Hoffman Beauty aptly describes their Fragrance Jewelry as "Perfume without the Bottle," and it is indeed just that.
According to Lisa Hoffman Beauty,

LH Beauty combines fashion and beauty in a unique, fashionable and affordable approach to wear fragrance your way. Each bracelet features signature charms with scent infused beads that slowly release fragrance that lasts for weeks, great for travel and easily added or removed as you like Fragrance Jewelry ensures perfume never touches the skin, ideal for sensitive skin and a long weekend spent in the sun.

Our fragrance beads are eco-friendly and made from the highest standard of pure perfume. Each piece of jewelry comes with refillable fragrance beads so you can easily refresh the scent in your charm. It’s perfume, we just reinvented the packaging.

Using eco-friendly materials and revolutionary technology, we've engineered our fragrance beads to deliver maximum fragrance in a minimalist design. The spherical shape of the beads combined with a proprietary scenting method allows for maximum fragrance throw and scent retention. What this means is that your Fragrance Jewelry was designed to be as fragrant as possible in the most efficient way.
This is such an innovative way to enjoy delectable fragrances, and without one's own body chemistry altering the scent. Furthermore, those who have trouble wearing perfumes due to sensitive skin can enjoy lovely scents without any concern about irritating their skin.
Lisa Hoffman's stunning Kerala Ashok Garden Bracelet features gorgeous vintage glass beads in a breathtaking shade of purple that are punctuated by evenly spaced reflective bright silver beads. The filigree charm that houses the scented beads is a functional work of art that is utterly gorgeous.

Highlighting the strength and femininity of Kerala Ashok Garden, the fragrance charm has been completely redesigned to hold more beads and diffuse more fragrance. Experience the beauty and heart of India's Ashok blossom with complementing notes of Deep Violet, Ripe Pear, Velvety Apricot, and Sheer Jasmine. Cast in bright silver with vintage glass beads in dreamy purple, this bracelet acts as a constant reminder to inhale bliss and exhale peace.

According to Lisa Hoffman Beauty,

Lyrical notes of Deep Violet, Ripe Pear, Velvety Apricot & Sheer Jasmine perfectly harmonize with the Ashok flower's spiritual essence while Musky Amber & Green-Floral Spice centers you with reflective calm. It’s easy to replenish the scent in your Fragrance Jewelry. Made with the highest concentration of pure perfume and designed specifically for the charm on your Fragrance Jewelry, our Fragrance Beads are engineered to deliver maximum levels of fine fragrance. It’s perfume…we just reinvented the packaging.
The interesting blend of scents results in a a rather magical scent that is at once uplifting and calming. It is mystical fruity floral warmed and softened by the musky amber with just enough spice to add extra complexity to this mélange of infinitely compatible scents. The end result is a bewitching scent that will have you sniffing your wrist repeatedly and obsessively throughout the day!

  1. hello my gorgeous darling, happy Sunday! Here I am reading a fantastic text but taking a break to read you and all the wonderful things you teach us here. The luxe madagascar one is pretty amazing and those beads? So adorable.

    1. Happy Sunday, my sweet friend! I love the joy with which you speak of reading such dense theoretical texts. Only a true academic finds such joy in the challenges of unpacking such erudition! You constantly inspire me! That you would take a break from that to read my posts is deeply flattering! Please move closer, and let us teach at the same university :-)

      I agree Luxe Madagascar is definitely amazing! She certainly makes some seriously gorgeous pieces that are drool-worthy! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday reading, and have a wonderful week on campus! xoxox

  2. believe me my darling gorgeous if I could move next to you and teach at your University I would be too happy and scented beads will fall out of my body. I am reading this wonderful Joan Copjec text on Iranian films and I just wish I could write like this, with such ease and control AHHHHHH. Amazing.
    We have had pretty awesome people come on an almost weekly basis. Now we have Gohar who does psychoanalysis in Teheran and she is BRILLIANT. I feel so blessed my darling, so grateful to be part of such a wonderful academic energy, full of strength and intelligence. I am but a grain of sand here and I love it! but your blog is my comfort. my soothing time. Here I come to find my other beauty <3

    1. Oh how I adore thee! I love the visual of scented beads falling out of your body! What a dream if we taught at the same institution-- though I suspect after this prestigious postdoc that every Ivy League school will be fighting over you!

      The text you are reading sounds amazing! Are you introducing it to your undergrads as well, or is it too dense for that context? I'm so happy that this environment is so stimulating for you-- it is so amazing that you have found such a challenging, enlightening and motivating intellectual climate. However, given that you are at one of the best universities in the world one would hope that is precisely what one would find. I really doubt that you are but a grain of sand there, and they are quite lucky to have you! OMG, that my blog is your comfort, and your soothing time means far more to me than you can imagine. Knowing the rigors of academia, and the hoops that we must continually jump through, often time makes it difficult to carve out time for anything beyond the walls of the University system. The fact that you find some pleasure in these virtual pages-- when you are in the pursuit of such lofty and edifying things itself brings joy to me! <3 <3 <3

  3. That is something I would wear! I love wearing a scent in jewelry. I have an Aveda pendant which I can fill with my favorite fragrance. No bracelet though!

    1. Hi Olivia! Me too!!!!! It smells absolutely amazing, and the bracelet itself is even prettier in person! The Aveda pendant sounds yummy! :-)

  4. OMG!!! I want this! I wanna have one of these. Its def a beautiful bracelet that seem to smell so heavenly. So curious about it!

    1. Hi Jess,

      It is definitely worth thinking about getting! It's even more beautiful in person, and the smell is just divine. They have lots of different styles, colors and fragrances, and they are all seriously beautiful. I have only smelled this one though. :-)
