    "I am in LOVE with the Cleansing Room Spray. I usually mix my own and have it pumping through my home via diffuser but these I can take TO-GO, it’s refreshing, crisp, and honestly essential oils are orgasms for your sniffer. So happy to receive such a high-quality item. They also threw in samples of perfume/cologne and they were an absolute hit for my partner. He's been wearing them every day since we receive our items."

The shop owner also sent samples of her other perfumes and I LOVE Cashmere-- I will be ordering some soon; it's a deep and almost magnolia(?) smell- I like it a lot. As a huge plus, the bottle is beautiful and this would make a great gift."

    I.  At the age of five, my parents took me to my first funeral. The woman was a friend of the family, though I do not remember meeting her. I think I wore a pink dress.  I didn’t know what death was. All I knew was that someone had “taken her.’ Then concern shifted to my increasing sugar...
