Fragrance of The Month: May 2014

It’s already May and that means it’s time for another Fragrance of The Month!

Fragrance of The Month // Monticello Pom | the white dahlia

This month we are inspired by this warm, almost summer-like weather. Which is why we chose our Monticello Pomegranate fragrance part of our Fairfax & King collection by Found Goods Market/ DPM Fragrance!

Fragrance of The Month // Monticello Pom | the white dahlia

Monticello Pomegranate is filled with the essence of pomegranate, lemongrass, rose and tart grapefruit – all things that scream spring and summer!

3wick Bowl // Monticello Pom | the white dahlia

This scent is great because it’s a bold fragrance that will fill the room without being overpowering. Also, our favorite part about the candles by Found Goods Market is that everything is made from recycled glass so it’s super eco-friendly.

Diffuser // Monticello Pom | the white dahlia

This fragrance is available in the Glass Reed Diffusser, 3-wick Glass Bowl, Boxed Tumbler and the Soap Bar with Shea butter!

Make It: Moscow Mule

Make It: Moscow Mule | the white dahlia

Lately we’ve been loving these Moscow mules! Have you tried them ?! If not, you’ve got to make one; here’s our recipe. They are the perfect springtime vodka-based drink – they remind us of a vodka margarita, if that was a thing.

Anywho, here’s how to make them…
What You’ll Need:
1.5 oz vodka
1 oz lime juice
Ginger beer
Soda or soda water

Make It: Moscow Mule | the white dahliaDirections:

Add ice to a highball glass (or the iconic copper mug, if you have one – we don’t.)
Pour in vodka and lime juice. Top off with ginger beer and soda.

Traditional Moscow Mules don’t use soda water but we like the bubbles it adds!

Enjoy!

Easter Flower Guide

It’s that time! Time to share our go-to holiday florals. This time, Easter.

Easter Flower Guide | the white dahlia

1. Tulips: We love colorful tulips for Easter; think yellow, pink, and purple.
2. Lilac: Lilac isn’t in season long, so when it is we like to use it as much as possible! It has a beautiful purple hue and a sweet fragrance that is amazing.
3. Daffodils: You really can’t fully enjoy spring without garnishing the house with this iconic spring flower.
4. Sweet Peas: Like lilac, sweet peas have a short season so we love using them when we can. They too have an intoxicating smell and beautiful vibrant color. We also love their wildflower look.
