Pretty Woman Perfume & Candle Sponsor Spotlight Review


 
Oh, you are gonna love this awesome perfume and candle called Pretty Woman that is in honor of Roy Orbison's wife, Barbara!

When I asked about them being a sponsor in my one of my Valentine's Day Events, I did not get the connection with the perfume being named Pretty Woman and the movie that was called that with Richard Gere and Julia Roberts.

Do you remember that movie? It was totally awesome and one of my all time favorites. So, as you know, Roy Oribson sings a song called Pretty Woman, and I cannot believe it all went right over my head until I went on their site and saw the pictures of the two of them together (Roy & Barbara)!

Then I got really excited and honored to be able to review a perfume that they had formulated and called Pretty Woman. Awesome story, huh?

This is the package I received to review:
Valentine's Day Special!  
Pretty Woman T-shirt
Pretty Woman Perfume (50 mL)  
Black Pretty Woman Perfume Candle 
 8 sample sized Pretty Woman perfumes
A $130 value for only $99.99!  
Make your Valentine feel like the Pretty Woman that she is!
 
Here is their description of the fragrance. I decided to use theirs because it is such an awesome one that I felt I needed to honor the way that they describe it:
Like the notes of a song, the notes of Pretty Woman Perfume open to reveal a complex melody of florals, spices and woods. Its crisp, luminous bergamot top note evolves to reveal a full, vivacious middle note accord of stargazer lily, red rose and carnation. The fragrance’s base note accord of fresh amber, patchouli, vanilla, atlas cedar and sacred incense combine with a lingering everlasting warmth and harmony.

 
The Black Candle is just as awesome and I haven't burned it much, wanting to hold onto it as long as possible, I let it burn a little each day before blowing it out. You will love this candle!
Pretty Woman Perfume Candles from Barbara Orbison have a scent that is familiar and immediately evocative: Their rich and exotic fragrance subtly steps forward, like a bouquet from a dear friend, a warm rich fragrance of roses and star gazer lilies, with hints of amber patchouli and vanilla, woods and incense, gently fills the room with a luscious calming aroma.  
This Pretty Woman Perfume fragrance was lovingly created by Barbara Orbison, and is as singular and mesmerizing as Roy Orbison’s iconic song. Barbara has been involved in every step of the development from conception to launch. She worked closely with perfumers to formulate the exact scent she desired, which she had carefully honed after having already spent years creating and wearing her own unique blend.  
“It has been a life-long dream of mine to create a perfume that speaks to women everywhere,” comments Barbara. “I believe that within every woman there is a pretty woman and my signature fragrance helps bring that out that inner confidence and spirit so they feel strong, empowered, sensual and pretty.”  
As unique as their fragrance, Pretty Woman Candles are made from an original blend of high-quality soy based waxes and a lead free wick with a remarkable 40 hour burn time.

My camera really doesn't do the candle justice because it came out so dark you could hardly read the words or see that the wax was also black so I went on their site and grabbed their image instead so you can see how awesome it looks!

Now, I gave a little glimpse of their T-Shirt above but here is a better picture for you to look at:

Pretty Woman T-Shirt features the Pretty Woman logo in gold or silver. These shirts are printed on Next Level Apparel. 65% Polyester, 35% cotton. You will absolutely love this shirt! It is so soft and feels so comfortable. It feels like an awesome night shirt or something that you would love to lounge around in, that is how comfortable it is!
 
I loved the whole package and the perfume is absolutely one of the best I have had the pleasure of reviewing and until I did review it, I had no idea it even existed so I am so happy that I am able to help spread the word about something that is truly awesome and has such a great legacy behind it.
I think I will use the sample sizes I got for the times that I am going somewhere and want to freshen up so I will put one in my handbag for that purpose. 

I also think I will put a few back into my perfume sampler cosmetic bags that I will be giving out sometime soon. That way a few of you who win those can also get to try this scent. Yeah, I like that idea! I will keep 4 of them and put them in 4 different sample bags for the ones who don't win this awesome package.

I found this in the About Us section:
Since she can remember, Barbara was always concocting lotions and potions in her kitchen, creating a delicious skin cream or mixing a delicate fragrance. Growing up in Germany in a family entrenched in the world of high fashion as owners of a couture clothing line and working as a model herself, she spent many hours backstage at fashion shows surrounded by beauty products.  
Early on she learned to appreciate makeup artistry and recognized the importance of good skincare regimens. She was also always fascinated with perfumes and intent on finding just the right scent. She regularly experimented with combing different oils and fragrances until she hit “the perfect note.” She was constantly asked by friends, colleagues and passersby what fragrance she was wearing because her scent was always so appealing and distinct.  
By the time Barbara married Roy, she had already formulated the type of fragrance she wanted to create. However, she became immersed in the music world, writing and producing and helping to manage their thriving music business. Those demands, plus raising two sons, required her to put her fragrance dream on hold until now. As with all of her projects, Barbara has been intimately involved with every step in the development of Pretty Woman Perfume.   
She worked closely with noted perfumers to formulate a scent that bears her signature. It’s fresh, upbeat, sophisticated, ageless and timeless. She helped design the classic bottle which comes from France and worked tirelessly to bring Pretty Woman to market overseeing all the sales, marketing and promotion.
