Desertdoll here with not a drugstore deal, but a definite steal!

I love a good DIY item. Don’t get me wrong, I think Sephora is heaven and have no problem buying a mega million-dollar brand. But finding homemade soaps at a farmers market, prepared by the woman behind the table-love it! Theme Fragrance definitely plays up to my homespun side.

Hand poured original scents made by Elizabeth Morrison, a Rhode Island School of Design grad and self-proclaimed “scenthound and photomaven”. This woman knows her fragrance, not only what scents make woman (and men) swoon but also the power of being able to be transported or cheered instantly by the right scent. The names of her fragrances match the aromas perfectly. You can imagine a carefree day spend in a Bikini with the fruity and bright citrus notes. Or exactly what Lotus Lake looks like when you smell the tea and water flowers.

But I have to say I identified most with the fragrance she sent us, Sarong– a blend of luscious creme de coconut, white vanilla sand, and night blooming flowers. And if you don’t see yourself on an island with a flower behind your ear, you need to have your nose checked! If you like tropical scents, you may have just met your favorite.

As if the fragrances themselves are not enough reason to buy, there’s the price. These totally adorable and easily portable perfume roll-ons are under 10 bucks. You can get her whole line with prices like that and transport yourself to a different location almost every day of the week!

Theme Fragrances are available at boutiques all over New York but for those of us not in the big apple you can get them through And if you’ve never spent anytime on that site, and have a DIY affection like me, be prepared to be amazed. Art, beauty, accessories, clothing, paper goods-it’s thousands upon thousands of stores of handmade items by sisters doing it for themselves!

So Ladies, let us know if Sarong had you booking a flight to a tropical location!
