CALL OF THE VIALED (+ GIVEAWAY!)

Friday, April 29, 2016

Ever since I made the commitment to sustainability within my wardrobe, I've been meaning to do the same for my beauty routine as well! I'm slowly starting to transition out my beauty products to be more green, and these potion-like perfumes from Call of the Vialed are my new daily scents now!

Read on to learn more about Call of the Vialed and also details on our Instagram giveaway!



Parfum Pur Set c/o Call of the Vialed

A little bit about Call of the Vialed—they are locally based in the Bay Area in Berkeley, CA! They make aromatherapeutic perfumes in which all the ingredients are ethically and sustainably sourced, are vegan, and also free of animal testing, pesticide residues, fillers, alcohol, phthalates, and parabens. 

Call of the Vialed is founded by Lauren Blevins, who used to work in product development for multiple beauty brands, which really informed her decision to cut the chemicals when she started her own perfume brand! All the perfumes are hand-blended with love by her. I also really appreciate that her perfume bottles are refillable (yay!) and she ships her perfume in biodegradable packaging!

Here I have Momentum, Hush, Flower, and Dream.

My favorite scent? Dream. This scent has notes of frankincense, clary sage, wild verbena, yarrow, German chamomile, ylang-ylang, and juniper berry. Lauren describes its aspects as arcane, celestial, copal, old world, sweet, fresh, cool, and fizzy, which I think are quite fitting for the scent! She also includes an aromapsychology profile for each scent (which I think is an awesome touch with totally lends itself to the potion aesthetic of these vials!) with Dream supporting grounding, curiosity, creativity support, imagination, reflection, tranquility, and visualization.

Flower is also a close second-favorite of mine! You can read more on each of the scent profiles as linked above :)

Aside from the fact that I was already quite happy knowing the ingredients were fairly and sustainably cultivated, I love the handy rollerball applicator (which comes with the 10 mL size), the uniqueness of the scents (which are also meant to be unisex), and I'm obsessed with the branding/aesthetic of her brand (my design student side coming out here haha!)


So now if you're interested in trying some of these scents out for yourself you can visit her Etsy shop here and also enter our Instagram giveaway here where one lucky winner will win a full-size fragrance of their choice!
Details are on the Instagram post! This giveaway is open to US residents and will end on May 8th, 2016. The winner will be chosen randomly and contacted on May 9th! :)


Thanks for reading and hope you guys have an awesome weekend! ♡
xo, Jennifer
