Pinrose is a luxury fragrance company founded by two lovely ladies in San Francisco that is made in the USA. They use only the highest quality essential oils, naturals, and synthetics and are phthalate and paraben free. Pinrose is available exclusively at Nordstrom and from Pinrose online. We met Erika (left, below) and let me tell you, she is seriously talented, passionate, smart and sweet.
Everyone was buzzing about Campfire Rebel:
Don't you just love the quirky names? Another favorite of the group ~ Garden Gangster. Another cool thing about this line is that you can purchase Petal Packs , their single dose sachets. They are perfect for tossing in your gym bag or your carry on. They are also a great way to try a bunch of fragrances without committing to a full bottle. Even the full size bottles can be brought on board thanks to the one ounce size. Bonus: no pushy fragrance ladies trying to spray you as you walk by.
We talked perfume as we shared all the food at Press Wine Bar. Their entrees sounded unseasonably heavy so we ordered a ton of apps and shared. The restaurant was SO dark that photos weren't really on my mind which caused me to do a huge blogger fail - no pics of our awesome group! I did manage to capture a little of our feast.
The combination board and flatbreads (shredded winter squash, duck confit and house cured pancetta were our choices) were big hits. Skip the pork meatballs - the texture was tough. Instead order the excellent Seared Florida Gulf Shrimp Crispy grit cake, pickled sweet peppers with blood orange gastrique. It was my favorite of the night. We also ordered rose and this excellent Malbec.
*Disclosure: Food and drinks were provided. We each also received Petal Packs to take home.
