Mystery Box - Shelley Kyle Collection

Shelley Kyle's inspiration for creating perfume came from needing something to put into the beautiful crystal encrusted perfume bottles she was making at her boutique in Atlanta, GA 17 years ago. She met with a local perfumer that showed her the way and since she's created five stunning fragrances, each named after her family members.

Her signature scent, Shelly Kyle, is a refreshing, clean scent blending lemon zest, freesia and violet leaves. Most of her scents our light and feminine. The deepest scent, and our favorite, is McClendon. It's mostly grapefruit but a touch of black currant absolute adds a depth and character we really enjoy. Annabelle also has grapefruit but blends with honeysuckle, blue peony, Lily of the Valley and tuberose to create a soft, sweet floral. Tiramani is the most fun scent with a strong blood orange accord mixed with Madonna Lily, white nectarine, cashmere musk and night blooming jasmine. Perfect for summertime - it's absolutely delicious. Sorella is her most floral fragrance with notes of fresh tuberose, gardenia, red roses and crushed violet leaves for an utterly romantic bouquet.

Blended with soy wax, the Shelley Kyle McClendon candle was one of the easiest and cleanest burning candles we've ever tried. The fragrance was potent! A little overwhelming for our small family room, the large 3-wick size is perfect for grand spaces or for those that loved to be enveloped in scent. She also offers a standard size candle that lasts over 45 hours and is packaged in a luxurious box.

Shelley Kyle fragrances are available in eau de parfum, candles, soaps and lotions. I love how she went ultra-feminine with her line - complete with powder puff for the ultimate in fun, girly indulgence. You can find Shelley Kyle products at http://www.shelleykyle.com.
