What is… Amber Perfume?

The term "amber" is used to describe many different perfumes and fragrances, but do you know what amber actually smells like? Don't worry, up until a few months ago, I had no idea either!  I've always enjoyed amber fragrances despite the fact that I could never put my finger on what I was smelling. I mean, much of the imagery associated with amber perfume depicts stones… but stones (fossilized tree resin, actually) don't really smell… so I guess I just assumed that "amber" perfume was supposed to smell like "amber" the color?

IT'S ONLY NOVEMBER!

HAPPY NOVEMBER EVERYONE!  Did you have a fantastic Halloween weekend? I hope so!  I know I had a lot of fun!  Just one small problem… now that Halloween is over it's apparently time to jump right into holiday gift buying pressure mode, and I am so not down for that yet! As much as I love the holiday season, I was a bit disappointed to see so much... well, Christmas, in my social media feed this morning… on the second day of November! Can't we just take a couple of weeks to treat ourselves to some fall fun before we have to start gearing...

These over the knee beauties by Cri de Coeur look like the perfect thing to pull on over jeans, or layer over tights and under dresses.

Let's be social!

Hi… Stefanie here!  I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU!!! to everyone who has visited (and purchased from) Twinkle Apothecary so far… it's been an amazing first week! Everything is still a work in progress (will it ever not be?) while I figure out how to balance all of the little details that go into running a business while actually crafting my products and fulfilling orders; but I love the idea of getting to share my journey with everyone via social media!

OMG! WE'RE LIVE!

Wow! I can't believe it! Twinkle Apothecary is a real, live e-commerce business! It feels like just yesterday I was mixing up some coconut oil and tapioca starch for the first time in my studio apartment in LA. Now here I am in Oklahoma City with signature fragrances, a product line, and an actual website that I built all by myself! (That's right, Twinkle Apothecary is a one woman show… for now!)  It's not perfect, but I am beyond proud of myself for working with what I have and doing the best I can. And I 1000% believe in my...
