Run Away To Paradise With Pacifica
Brook Harvey-Taylor always had a fascination for different scents. As a young girl, she loved incorporating spices to construct new aromas. While in high school, she began reading a book by Tom Robbins’ Jitterbug Perfume that in turn, intrigued her interest further into mixing her own fragrances from essential oils. Brook became apprentice in aromatherapy during her college years and enjoys making her own personal scents.
A Modern West Coast Take on Perfuming
PACIFICA SPRAY PERFUMES
Pacifica perfumes are made with natural grain alcohol. Natural Grain Alcohol is created from the fermentation process of grains. Natural Grain Alcohol is not like synthetic chemical alcohols as Natural Grain Alcohol is non-abrasive, non-drying and helps to preserve moisture in the skin and hair. Therefore, your skin and hair will not be left feeling dry. These fragrances have unlimited ways of creating the scent you want to achieve. One can wear them by pairing together to layer various scents or wear them alone. Pacifica perfume has numerous blends to try.
The spray perfume I tried is called the Mexican Cocoa. When I think of Mexican Chocolate spicy comes to my mind. Pacifica’s Chocolate Cocoa perfume has a blend of natural and essential oils containing scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, almost clove, and patchouli. Patchouli plant is a member of the mint family and grows in tropical climates. The essential oil is extracted by steamed distillation of the leaves. As the patchouli ages the aroma becomes stronger and develops earthy scents. Patchouli oil can aid in many skin conditions such as acne, eczema, inflamed, cracked, chapped, and irritated skin. Furthermore, as a fragrance it helps calm your soul and bring you a sense of nourishment. In addition, This perfume has no parabens, animal testing, animal ingredients or artificial colors. Additionally, 100% VEGAN and Gluten-free.
When I first applied this perfume I noticed right away the strong smell of cocoa with a sweet smell of vanilla. The smells of cinnamon and clove are highlighted lightly within the perfume smell. After wearing this perfume for some time I noticed that the cocoa smell lasts quite a long time. I did not have to re-apply as once the cocoa fades the aroma of vanilla and cinnamon are left behind. This perfume is sure to ignite passion and pleasure to your life. Try it today! This is one of their most popular scents.

Pacifica’s roll on perfumes is a great way to touch up while on the go. These roll on perfumes are the same fragrances you can find as the sprays. These fragrances come in a beautiful printed glass vial that makes transporting easy. I always hated lugging a bottle of perfume around in my purse! Now it is easier as this small vial is slender and takes up less space. In addition they make the perfect gift!
The scent I tried is the Malibu Lemon Blossom. This fragrance is amazing in site and smell. The fresh smell of the salt sea air and citrusy smell of lemons make me feel spectacular, fresh, and feel clean. This is my favorite lemon scented fragrance thus far. It has just a touch of saltiness but it is not overwhelming.
All the scents in the spray collection are in the roll on collection as well.
