Mother’s Day gift ideas part two: Lisa Hoffman Beauty Fragrance Jewelry

In this year’s search for creative and unique Mother’s Day gifts, I came across the perfect marriage of two of my favorite things – fragrance and jewelry.  “Imagine a perfume as visually beautiful as a sparkling cocktail ring or a rare silk scarf – and that can be taken on and off just as easily.”  Lisa Hoffman did just that when she was gifted a pair of Victorian-Era earrings by her husband, actor Dustin Hoffman.  Lisa set out to create her vision, and a perfect Mother’s Day gift was born!

Back in the Victorian Era, it was considered gauche to show off your diamonds.  So jewelers created a ‘front’ to cover the jewels as the ladies traveled to and from events.  Lisa created beautiful earrings, pendants, and bracelets with a charm similar to those ‘fronts’ that encases small wooden beads that are full of fragrance.

The wooden beads slowly release the scent as they are exposed to air, so it’s a subtle delivery, not a huge cloud of perfume.  I was lucky enough to try a pair of the earrings ($65) in the Tunisian Neroli scent.

Tunisian Neroli is a gorgeous, warm, intoxicating scent.  It’s a combination of neroli flower, ylang ylang, and golden amber.  There are five scents in all to chose from – French Clary Sage (clean watery linen), Japanese Agarwood (unique woody zest), Madagascar Orchid (exotic modern floral), Tuscan Fig (sophisticated and sweet), and Tunisian Neroli (sensuous classic floral).  I love how the fragrance profiles are all very distinct, there is definitely something for every person’s scent preference.  If you aren’t sure which fragrance is best, check out the iScentify – it’s a lot of fun and will tell you exactly which scents will work for you.

The earring charms open up, and you put a few of the wood beads inside then snap closed.  As you move your head, the fragrance softly wafts about you in a beautifully subtle way.

What a unique and perfect combination – your fragrance and jewelry in one!!  And when the fragrance is gone, you can get replacement beads for $20.  The Tunisian Neroli earrings are gold, but other scents come in silver, bronze, or rose gold.

They are so pretty on – somehow they manage to be both vintage and modern looking at the same time.  I love the Tunisian Neroli and I am dying to try the Tuscan Fig bracelet and necklace.  I think I am going to put this on my Mother’s Day list – as a gift for me!!  This is really one of the most unusual and genius products I have ever seen.  I cannot recommend it highly enough – get some for your mom, and get some for you!  – Lisa

    Hi Sis, not that I know of. The line is available online as noted in the review, and some of the jewelry is also on HSN.com, so you might want to check that out! The prices are slightly cheaper there.
