We are excited to be featured in 5280's online holiday gift guide for the fashionable! Petal & Leaf was one of the 10 curated fashion-forward gifts chosen!
For the gal craving an authentic fragrance—meaning one not made from chemicals, like many mainstream versions—choose one of seven scents from Petal & Leaf Holistic Aromatics. Inspired by reading about the history of perfumes created prior to the late 1700s (when synthetic materials started to be introduced into scent-making), Glenwood Springs-based founder and 20-year perfume industry veteran Lara Claassen decided to work with two talented French noses to create a collection of all-natural scents from essential oils, absolutes and resins (all ingredients are listed on the box; a rarity in the perfume world). From the alluring fragrances—which include standouts like the rich, oriental floral notes of Ylang and Sandalwood—to the letterpress printed boxes, everything about this line has been thoroughly and beautifully cultivated.
