Summer Veil shimmers between that breathless moment just before the veil of spring is pulled away to reveal the full glory of summer. An update on the SHP classic, Perfect Veil, we've added a few notes that take this clean, subtle, provocative fragrance into warm endless summer days.
Summer Veil evokes sun drenched naked skin, walking barefoot through fresh-cut dewy grass, and an outdoor wedding under a vibrant blue sky. It is a nod to June brides, honeymoon's, midsummer revelry, and the simplicity that summer inevitably brings. Linger under the spell of Summer Veil.
La Vie En Rose Notes:
Top: Grapefruit, Cassis, Summer Peach, and a hint of Spearmint (Mojito anyone ;) )
Middle: Mimosa Blossom
Base: Perfect Veil, French Vanilla, Brazilian Vetiver, Mysore Sandalwood, and Ambroxin
Spring has officially arrived and replaced the first buds with tender green shoots. Here in Southern California we've had our yearly rains and the hillsides are verdant once again. This fragrance is all about Sarah's birthday month, May, and it's birthstone - the emerald. Because it's her birthday, Sarah has created not one, but two delicious scents: Emerald Day and Emerald Night, each an ode to the different facets of the stone, and of each of us.
Emeralds have always been special to Sarah; her Mother Andrea has a beautiful emerald ring that only came out on special occasions, and emeralds came to represent something extra - ordinary. They are classic beauty, sophistication, and elegance.
Sarah created 'the Emeralds' to evoke both bright spring days and elegant evenings. After all, who wouldn't want to be draped in emeralds day and night?
Emerald Day is bright, fun and flirty, with notes of green manderin, pear, fig, fressia, spring musk and vanilla. Emerald Night is deeper - sultry, crisp and classic, with notes of red and green manderin, fig, jasmine grandiflorium, spicy patchouli, a hint of vanilla, and spring musk.
Very different interpretations of green, with one common element - our new Spring Musk accord, debuting this month in these fragrances.
Imagine a place where the scent of heady night blooming jasmine and euphoric orange blossom mingle, surround you, and lift you higher. Here, possibilities become realities, love is just around the corner, and the golden sun is shining warmly on your bare skin. That's the sweet spot. An ode to the blossoms and joie de vivre of spring.
Transport yourself with Sweet Blossom this April.
La Vie En Rose Notes:
Top: Lemon, Petitigrain
Middle: Neroli Fleur, Night Blooming Jasmine, Jasmine Grandiflorum, Orange Blossom
Base: African Musk, White Tunisian Musk
After the rain there is a timeless moment when the sun's rays part the billowing storm clouds and nature exhales. Impossibly brilliant blue skies beckon us into open spaces, with the spring flowers poking through the damp, black earth.
We invite you into that moment. Turn your face to the sun, find respite from the storm, anoint yourself, and return to that fresh place, After The Rain.
Arise Fragrance Notes:
Top: Grapefruit, Fresh Cut Grass
Middle: Notes:Freesia, Violet (March's flower)
Base: Fresh Rain, Oakmoss, Orris Root
The queen of all flowers, the rose embodies centuries of symbolism in her sweetly scented petals. Perhaps that is why roses so completely and fully embody the essence of love, both of self and others. The blossom, the thorns, all of it. La Vie En Rose is Sarah's tribute to roses, passion and the love of self that must prelude the love of others.
Directly translated from French, la vie en rose means 'life in pink'- to see and experience life through rose colored glasses. When we're in love doesn't all the world seem sweeter?
Anoint yourself and reveal La Vie En Rose.

The moment day evaporates into the night, that elusive, fleeting, magical periwinkle second when time stands still for a split second, that's Perfect Twilight.
Sarah created Perfect Twilight long before the sparkly skinned vampires hit book shelves. But that doesn't mean this fragrance doesn't embody the heady, fanciful, enthusiastic rush of immortal love. Originally launched 10 years ago, this beloved scent is being brought back to life as November's fragrance of the month. Soft and powdery, Twilight opens with top notes of Anise and Italian Bergamot, middle notes of African Violet and Spicy Lilac, accented with scents of Honeysuckle and Freesia, finally burning down into cool, dreamy base notes of Musk, Vanilla, Sandalwood, and Orris.
Coeur De Sang, or Heart's Blood, is
Sarah's ode to Amber. Seductive, spicy, and passionate, it is the newest addition to the Sarah Horowitz Parfums fragrance of the month collection. Layered with Love Comes From Within, Coeur de Sang is a sexy tour-de-force.
Coeur De Sang Fragrance Notes:
Top Note: Blood Orange
Middle Notes: Black Rose, Mysore Sandalwood
Base Notes: Tunisian Amber, Red Amber, Labdanum, Benzoin, Patchouli, Tunisian Opium, Vanilla and Orris ( the root of the iris flower, a scent that evokes for us the eternal love, longing and mystère of Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris)
September falls into that not quite category. It's not quite summer anymore, but it doesn't feel like fall either; it's the prelude to fall. Sarah's blended a bright, warm mix of scents to create the perfect bridge to transition you from summer into fall.
Prelude Fragrance Notes:
Top Note: Bergamot (Earl Gray Tea)
Middle Note: Egyptian Jasmine, Honey and a hint of Carnation
Base Note: French Vanilla and Patchouli
