DIY Cologne for Men - Tempestuous Cologne Recipe - Easy Homemade Gift Idea for Men - Also Make Great DIY Wedding Favors for the GuysThere’s a cologne fragrance for men called Fierce that’s distributed via Abercrombie & Fitch. However, in light of their recent negative press, you might be wary about making future purchases from them. Regardless of your stance, their cologne, Fierce, is still a great fragrance for men. But you don’t have to buy it because now you can actually DIY it. Very recently a dupe of this Abercrombie fragrance was developed as a fragrance oil. So not only can you now make your own handmade colognes for men with this great scent, you can also use the fragrance oil to produce other men’s products with this fragrance including homemade soaps, lotions and other masculine skin care products.

Following is a recipe for making your own Fierce-like cologne using a fragrance oil dupe created by Nature’s Garden called Ferocious Beast. Of course, I came up with my own name for this fragrance as well and dubbed mine Tempestuous. You can call yours whatever you like. But if you dig the name Tempestuous, I have created free printable labels for you to use on your own cologne oils you create with this recipe.

Nature Garden’s Ferocious Beast fragrance oil contains citrusy top-notes of orange, lemon and lime, leading to middle notes of rosemary, jasmine, lily of the valley, vetiver  and rose and finishing a woody, oakmoss and white musk base note. Create these as diy wedding favors or homemade stocking stuffer gifts for the guys.

Other fragrances for men you may be interested in trying include The Perfect Man, Game On, and Bay Rum. (Buy any 5 16oz. fragrance oils and receive a $1 off per container from Nature’s Garden.)

Dying to wear your favorite soap or candle fragrance with you everywhere you go? Then make your own homemade perfume oils. It’s easy to find many of your favorite fragrances and fragrance dupes online. One company in particular, Nature’s Garden Wholesale Candle & Soap Supplies, offers a wide selection of fragrance oils perfect for using in your own homemade soaps and perfumes. They also carry one of my favorite all time fragrances, Red Velvet Cake, as well as the fragrance oil, Democrat, that I use in one of my bestselling handmade soaps, the Big Lick Salt Bar (recipe here.) Their fragrance oils come in sizes as small as 1oz. so it’s easy to mix and match new fragrances you want to try. Or you can go big and save $1 off per 16 oz. bottle of fragrance oil when you buy five or more. (It’s easy to get addicted!)

The following recipe is for crafting your own homemade perfume oils. I’ve simplified the recipe so there’s no need for a scale as you don’t have to weigh any ingredients. I made this recipe with Nature Garden’s Red Velvet Cake Fragrance Oil, but you can substitute it with any skin safe fragrance oil of your choice. These are perfect for making custom handmade wedding favors or as handmade stocking stuffer gifts. Plus, you can whip these up in about ten minutes or less. For your convenience I’ve also created printable labels for your perfume oils – both in black & white and color – to give your homemade gifts a professional touch.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas – Birch Box’s New Limited Edition Superwoman Beauty Collection

Cleopatra TOCCA Crema da Mano Luxe Hand Cream - Natural Beauty and Skin Care Hand Cream with a Fabulous Light Grapefruit and Cucumber Fragrance - Perfect for a Mother's Day GiftRecently I decided to give Birch Box a try. Based out of New York City this amazing company is perfect for anyone who loves trying out new bath and beauty products. I’d been wanting to try a sample box subscription for some time, but so many of them were out of my price range or required paying for three months or more up front. Birch Box is different. For $10 a month, billed monthly, you received a fabulous box of beauty, grooming and lifestyle samples each and every month. Samples include fragrances, skin care and bath products, cosmetics, even teas and snacks! What has me really excited about this sample program is that it includes high end brands I ordinarily wouldn’t have the chance to try due to budget restrictions. It also offers the chance to try “green” brands that are just launching.

I haven’t received my first sample beauty box yet – it’s set to arrive on Thursday – but I did order the limited edition From the Garden box they offered. It’s sold out now, but you can buy the products that were included within the box individually. My favorites from the box were the Tocca Crema da Mano Luxe, the Lafco Little Luxuries Candle Tin and L’occitane’s Thé Vert & Bigarade fragrance.

I received the Cleopatra Tocca Hand Cream (pictured above) which is a fragrant blend of grapefruit and cucumber. I immediately fell in love with the fragrance. It’s lightly scented, but smells quite lovely – crisp and fresh. What I really liked about this hand cream was that it absorbed quickly and left my hands feeling soft and smooth – almost silky in the way baby powder makes skin feel to the touch. It’s made with a combination of moisturizing oils including avocado and coconut oil, and also contains shea butter and chamomile extract. Tocca offers this cream in five signature fragrances – Cleopatra (as mentioned), Stella (blood orange), Giulietta (pink tulip and green apple), Bianca (green tea and lemon), and Florence (bergamot and gardenia). I pretty much want to try them all. Plus I love the packaging. And with Mother’s Day coming up I think these would make an excellent Mother’s Day gift as well.

I did some looking around, and Birch Box pricing is pretty much dead on with other retailers who offer their products. Minus the extra benefits that come with shopping Birch Box which include free shipping, free samples and offers from their Bonus Shop, and their rewards program.

Mint Scented Lafco Candle Tin with Matches that Fit Neatly Into the LidOne of the other products I received in my limited edition From the Garden Birch Box was this Lafco Little Luxuries Candle Tin in Mint. My favorite thing about this container is the tin it comes in. While the fragrance I received was mint, it really did not smell so much like straight mint to me, rather more of combination of mint and pine. My boyfriend thought it smelled more like pine than anything else, which was fine by him, seeing as how he prefers a more masculine scented candle so this scent made a nice compromise. Made from soy wax, this small candle has a burn time of over thirty hours. But what really does it for me is how lovely the tin itself is. Not only is it pretty to look at, but the lid has an indention on top that hold a box of matches. I thought it wa pretty genius to pair the two together. This is one tin I’ll definitely be re-using and re-purposing once the candle is gone. I may even put another candle it since I’ve been dying to try my hand at candle making at some point.

L'OCCITANE La Collection de Grasse - Thé Vert & Bigarade FragranceI also really love the sample of L’occitane’s fragrance Thé Vert & Bigarade that I received. It’s part of their new line of fragrances, La Collection de Grasse, that was inspired by its namesake town in the south of France. The four fragrances within this line are Jasmine & Bergamote, Vanille & Narcisse, Magnolia & Mûre, and Thé Vert & Bigarade. Thé Vert & Bigarade is a blend of blossoming green floral notes with earthy wood notes that reminds me of tradition. It’s not overwhelmingly floral and is almost crisp in nature. For me, it’s what a “toilet water” should smell like. That beautiful, yet expensive perfume that you coveted from your grandmother’s dresser. Traditional in a way that is classy, sophisticated, understated and timeless.

Mother's Day Gift Idea - A Fabulous Limited Edition Beauty Birch Box -  The Superwoman CollectionWith the From the Garden Limited Edition Birch Box now sold out, Birch Box just introduced a new limited edition box for Mother’s Day. Named the Superwoman Collection, this new beauty collection includes $190 in products bargain priced at just $58 with free shipping. (Plus you can score some sweet extras with it at no charge from the Bonus Shop.) As this box had so many intriguing products I really wanted to try, I indulged and purchased one for myself. Though you could always buy one for you AND one for mom. This box includes the following full sized products: 29 Preserves I-Block Grape Seed Age Protecting™ Estate Collection Eye Shadow – a four shade collection of shimmery ivory, creamy pink, rich espresso brown, and a warm cinnamon infused with antiaging grape antioxidants, a Le Métier de Beauté Dualistic Eye Pencil, a Le Métier de Beauté Anamorphic Lash Waterproof Mascara, and rms beauty™ Living Luminizer. You also receive a travel size Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask and Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Moisture Bath & Shower along with a super cute Chambre de Sucre’s Macaron Limoge Trinket Box. In addition to shipping for free I was also able to choose a sample pack with two samples at no charge – I chose the Weleda Pomegranate Firming Night Cream & Archipelago Pomegranate Body Soap – and a free sample of Benefit BADgal Lash Mascara.

I can’t wait to receive to my first Birch Box shipment – I’ll be sure to fill you in on what’s hot and what’s just, well, not. And I’ll also be sure to give you feedback on the new Superwoman Collection! If you’re interested in trying Birch Box for yourself, you can sign up here. In addition to their sample box program, you can also shop for any of the full size products they carry. Birch Box products of the month always ship free no matter your order size. Other products ship free with a $50 order. Plus you earn points toward free products with every purchase! You can also gift a women’s subscription to Birch Box just for Mother’s Day for 3, 6 or 12 months!

Teroforma Whisky Stones® MAX - Great Gift Idea for Father's DayAlso, new to Birch Box are subscriptions for men. My boyfriend said he didn’t think he was really interested in a subscription for himself, but he did enjoy the purchase I made for him from the Men’s Birch Box Shop. I bought him the Teroforma Whisky Stones® MAX – as whiskey is his favorite drink – and a container of Mr. Natty Presents Frank’s Beard Elixir. I also chose the Birchbox Man Pick Two Sample Pac (Free with $25 purchase) which I received free with my purchase and I added the Birchbox Koozies (free with $30 purchase.) Plus it shipped free!

Father's Day Gift Idea - Wood Grain Beer Koozies with ZippersThe Birchbox Koozies, which I wasn’t expecting to be that great since they were a free product, are actually really cool. They look so much nicer in person and have that awesome wood grain motif that’s currently trending. They also have zippers on the back to zip the koozie snuggly around your beer or beverage.

Have you ever tried a sample program – either Birch Box  or another company? What was your take?
