Fragrance is everything.
It is perhaps, even before someone's eyes, the first thing that is noticed about another person.
As a 23 year old woman, I have adorned thousands of fragrances without ever finding my signature scent... though I think that is about to change.
DedCool, an LA-based, cruelty-free/natural company, features unisex products that are simply to die for. Here is my review on some of their products...
Oh how I wish you could all simply smell this fragrance through your screens, because my words will hardly do it justice...
Because this brand's range is completely unisex, each fragrance and chapstick balances the sweetness so associated with femininity in perfect harmony with the musky, sexiness that most would consider masculine by nature. Each fragrance oil smells different depending on the natural pheromones of the wearer, creating a unique experience for each individual.
Fragrance 01 "Taunt", my personal fave, is an intoxicating oil which features bergamot, fresh dew, floral, cassis, vanilla, and amber notes. When I close my eyes and breathe this oil in, I imagine myself in sky-high stilettos, in an underground NY club covered in velvet, listening to slow jazz, and sipping on some whiskey.
Sexy, edgy, utterly rock 'n' roll.
Fragrance 02, a balance of juniper, green floral, sheer woods, patchouli, leather, sandalwood, and musk, is a bit more of an organic scent, though no less rich and decadent. With this fragrance, I close my eyes and imagine leather-seated motorcycles, skinny dipping on a full moon, and fragrant cigars on a wild summer night.
These chapsticks (named "chazsticks" after DedCool's matermind, Carina Chazanas) have literally the most buttery formula I have ever come across. After using this chazstick for a couple of weeks, I have absolutely noticed a difference in the softness of my lips (thanks to the shea butter, I'm sure), and just like the fragrances, I have fallen in love with the scents. My fave is Number 04 in the flavor Sugar, though I love the refreshingly cool scent of Menthe.
Overall, the obsession with DedCool is REAL.
If you guys are looking for a new edgy, alternative fragrance come Fall, I highly recommend you give this brand a try.
And if you don't already follow them on Instagram, check it out - their "mood board" is totally inspiring.
