For work, I subscribe to a service called HARO (Help a Reporter Out). Last week, HARO was promoting a company called Kelly & Jones. They create fine fragrances that capture the scents of various wines. Because of my love of wine AND perfume, I had to check out their website.
Kelly & Jones offers five different scents in their Notes of Wine Collection: Sauvignon Blanc, Reisling, Cabernet, Merlot and Chardonnay. The Sommelier Sprays are $50 for a 1.69 oz. bottle. They also have these scents in a smaller Wine Country Rollette for $25 each. Or you can purchase a Sample Flight of all five scents for $15.
As the story goes, the company founder, Kelly, was wearing perfume at a wine tasting, which is a big no-no because the scent of the perfume can interfere with the aroma of the wine. Because she loved wearing perfume, she decided to create scents that not only captured the notes of some of her favorite wines, but also enhanced the vino experience by complementing the aromas of these wines.
I think this is such a cool idea. While I have my favorite scents, I love perfume in general. I’m always looking to try new fragrances. I think I’d enjoy the Cabernet – “spicy notes of pink peppercorn, ripe black cherry, and tobacco flower on a gorgeous base of vintage leather.”
What do you think? Would you wear a wine-inspired perfume?
