Sweet Scents for Spring


Sweetly refreshing, with Oriental flavors and a spritz of tang … it’s not the latest martini mix, it’s Lavanila’s sophisticatedly sexy Vanilla Grapefruit fragrance. Created by self-proclaimed product junkies who couldn’t stop sneezing, itching and suffering from killer headaches, these simple scents are skin-friendly and earth-friendly.

Since your skin absorbs up to 60 percent of what’s smoothed or sprayed onto it, Lavanila’s infused with organic ingredients, natural oils and 100 percent active botanicals, pampering your body with antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. (No petrochemicals, mineral oils, dyes or parabens!)
An added bonus: the pretty packages are 100 percent recyclable.

Pick up one of three delightful sprays (Vanilla Grapefruit, Pure Vanilla or Vanilla Blossom) for $56 @

green lingerie for the ladies

When it comes to underwear, it doesn’t get much better than natural fibers — organic cotton or soy undergarments are super comfy next to skin.

From one of my favorite UK-based online shops, natural collection, is one of my favorite patterns — polka dots. Smart and sleek, grey dots on black with a dash of black trim. these ditties (LEFT) are available as a set, or separately @

If you pine for something different, then this is for you — a new to the eco friendly-fiber-scene line made from pine, from France-based designer Sophie Young.

g=9.8 represents gravitational acceleration. how sexy! The company is sustainable, inside and out. Their natural fiber is wholly biodegradable and made from white pine tree-pruning (fresh white pine smells divine); the packaging is re-usable, and they decided not to label their garments — a new eco feature and comfort bonus.

Their garments (CENTER) are hot off the press, with many of the styles still being manufactured. patience is a blessing. But keep your eye on g=9.8, our friends across the pond; there’s sure to be a big splash soon.

And take a peek at hempclothiers for comfy new items for spring. I like their organic cotton, soy and spandex jersey Jericho Tank with built-in support, (RIGHT).

UPDATE:  2009 – alas, hempclothiers is no longer…
