“French Clary Sage” Variations 4-Vital Set, $95.00
Designed to be wearable around the clock, Lisa Hoffman fragrances are scientifically formulated to satisfy our senses at every moment. We artfully translated our fine fragrances into four, perfectly balanced Variations: Morning, Daytime, Evening and Bedtime.
Morning: A crisp, yet balanced variant with subtle top notes that lead to an ever-so-slight zeal for a fresh morning start.
Day Time: Our sense of smell is at its peak the ideal time to experience the perfume’s full expression. This multi-dimensional variant is the heart of the fragrance and used as the foundation to create all other variants.
Evening: Accentuates the deeper, more sensual notes for an intriguing sense of mystique.
Bed Time: This variant whispers a powdery, delicate version of the perfume as our fatigued senses prepare for rest.
The Variations fragrances are formulated as pulse point perfume oils, designed to diffuse the scent at the warmest parts of the body. Ideal for layering, these perfumes oils allow you to blend your own signature scents.
The Lisa Hoffman Variation 4-Vital Set is also available in Japanese Agarwood, Madagascar Orchid, Tuisian Neroli and Tuscan.
