An Escentual Connection: AromaWear by Cathy Gins
A single working woman should always carry two business card cases: one that is strictly professional...and one for when that cute guy at Starbucks asks for your card - something totally personal that leaves a "scentual" impression by wafting your perfume. Scientific studies confirm that scent triggers memory, so you and your card will be unforgettable. And your scent will linger on cards stored in this patent-pending business card holder, one of many ingenious treasures designed by Cathy Gins, founder and designer of AROMAWEAR, recipient of the Fashion Group International 2009 Rising Star Award in the Beauty Entrepreneur category for Jewelry and Accessories.
Whether you select Gin's beautifully designed lockets, charm bracelets, or keychains, scenting your Aromawear is simple! Here's how:
1. Open locket.
2. Insert the wick (100% wool pad that is highly absorbent and created from organic fibers).
3. Apply aromatherapeutic oil or your personal fragrance.
"Like many people who use fragrance to create an ambiance in their home, I use fragrance to create a personal universe, an invisible aura of scent that surrounds me wherever I go," explains Gins. "Some of the scents I enjoy are familiar and comforting, some are mysterious and exciting, while others are therapeutic and nurturing. For this I need the fragrance to be alive and ongoing, which is why I created the Aromawear Collection of scent diffusing jewelry and accessories. I know it's a real cliche, but it is truly a 'gift that keeps on giving.'"
