Roxana Illuminated Perfume $30 Gift Certificate GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

February 10, 2010

At the doctor's office last week I was sitting in the waiting room, bored. I started digging through my purse looking for something to occupy myself. I found a tiny vial of sample perfume and sprayed my neck. It turned out to be a happy surprise. I walked into the doctor's office not feeling as frumpy and disheveled as I had been a couple minutes before.

I usually only use perfume for special occasions but when I do it always makes me feel more put together and of course, smelling sweeter:)

If the cold weather and indoors are also making you feel frumpy take a look at today's guest giveaway, Roxana Illuminated Perfume.


I especially liked her "Food of the Gods" sample featuring delicious cacao perfume made with vital, natural ingredients. In scents of Noir: a deep, dark and mysterious chocolate with a strong musk note, Cerise: a Succulent cherry weaved with a base of rich chocolate, La Forêt: Where a dense conifer forest meets an ocean of chocolate, L'Orangerie: A Mouth watering citrus in a base of rich chocolate, Bois de Chocolat: Smokey woods and chocolate, and Épices Spice: with a hint of vanilla and chocolate.

Roxana’s passion for the planet, it’s resources and gifts is evident in her life as an artist - both in the visual and aromatic arenas.


Born in Buenos Aires Argentina she grew up in Los Angeles, California. Roxana traveled back to Argentina twice a year to visit her large extended family.


Upon receiving a BFA in Communication Design from Otis Parsons in downtown Los Angeles, Roxana moved to New York and began work as a freelance illustrator in the world of publishing.

After the birth of her daughter, she studied Aromatherapy formerly learning the miraculous powers inherent in the plant kingdom. Blending the knowledge of nature with a loving art spirit, Roxana now creates perfumes that reflect a healing modality whilst celebrating the individual.

Currently her studio and home our located in the Santa Monica Mountains where she resides with her family. Roxana melds her love of nature into an authentic self-expression as an artist working in several mediums honoring the botanical world.

Roxana creates perfumes from the highest-grade botanical materials; including pure essences sourced from the deserts of Arabia, tropical forests of Madagascar as well as Mediterranean meadows.

In the tradition of alchemists and perfumers of ancient times, Roxana creates an illuminated line of exclusive, signature fragrances along with extraordinary custom perfumes.


Every fragrance is created in small batches by hand and resonates with a deep connection to the land, utilizing intoxicating scents drawn from the botanical world.

Her liquid perfumes are created utilizing organic grape and organic grain alcohol. They create numerous accords of pure essential oils, absolutes, concretes, and co2 extractions.


They create their own tinctures and infusions. They seek out and utilize as much organic material as possible. Some of the plant material they harvest for their tinctures and infusions is organic and wild crafted.

I love Roxana's perfumes. My favorite is Cimbalom, it is so beautiful and sexy. It makes me happy when I wear it and cimbalom lasts forever on your skin too. Q is another great perfume, very fresh green and georgous. For the chocolate perfumes so far my favorite is La foret- it reminds me of Christmas in the middle of a forest with snow covered trees and ornement made out of chocolate oranges and cloves. thank you for offering the gift certificate. angie
