Hello there.

It's nice to meet you.

I'm Jessica.

Once upon a time, I wrote a lot on this blog.

Now, not so much. But I haven't quite gotten around to totally delete it from the internet just yet. So, here it remains, collecting dust. 

So if you've ended up here, hello and welcome. I still tweet from time to time and pin (see above) and if you want to see what I do, click on the giant box below that says VIEW MY WORK.

TTFN, y'all. 



JET-SET BEAUTY | Rich Hippie Kalachakra


AT $725 for half an ounce, Rich Hippie Kalachakra is not in the realm of financial possibility for most. However, this column is called JET-SET BEAUTY... the remit isn't to feature affordable things but jet-set beauty buys and I'm pretty sure this fits that criteria. Many would argue that it's ludicrous to pay so much for something when you could find a pretty good facsimile elsewhere for less. I don't care. If money were no object, I'd have regular baths in this stuff.

Back to the point... The Rich Hippie perfumes are pretty good at not smelling like organic hippies. You won't detect a hint of patchouli here. It's a beautiful warm citrus floral that gets more complex as it warms up on your skin.

The LA-based Rich Hippie ingredients are all natural (being California chic and all), made from organically farmed ingredients (rather rare for sophisticated scents) even using organic wine alcohol. Everything is made in tiny batches and limited edition (even more jet-set).

As expensive as gold but smells better... it's like your own little sliver of rich, famous and socially conscious LA.

Oh my gosh does this stuff really sell for $725? At the last magazine I worked at we did a story on natural fragrances and 3 Rich Hippie scents ended coming home with me... I had no idea they were so high end though! (Or maybe it's just this particular scent?)

Anyway - that story really changed my thinking about fragrances... I'm really drawn to these botanicals now and there are few mass scents I like anymore. My favourite of all time is Red Flower Guaiac. I fell in love with it and then found a nice write up on it by Chandler Burr who agrees with me! (always nice when he does)
