A few weeks ago, I was blessed with the opportunity to meet Ivy of the California-based PR giant known as Echoing Soundz. We spoke briefly about the possibility of me hosting an influencer event in Los Angeles and, not too soon after, she asked whether I wanted to receive a special gift from the company. And, of course, I humbly accepted!
Now, the thing with me is, I tend to forget about gifts that are sent in the mail. Like, really! With the day-to-day task of juggling content for two blogs and writing full-time, I am guilty of allowing things to slip my mind. Anywho, my gift from Echoing Soundz was delivered on Saturday and it was both a pleasant surprise and love at first sniff.
The little gem that was enclosed inside the chic ivory packaging was 1st Femme’s Eau de Parfum Par Siren. As I unwrapped the beautiful fragrance, I couldn’t help but admire the flawless branding instilled within the product. The bottle is sculpted into a rectangular shape and the gold top shimmered as the words “1st Class” were etched in within its center. Fun gold string accents were also added to give a bit of pizzazz to 1st Femme’s elegant gift. See more of the mind-blowing packaging below!
I did my research prior to slathering myself in this scent and, what I came across, made me adore this company even more. Typically, 1st Femme’s Eau de Parfum Par Siren will run you about $65 for a 50 mL bottle and $85 for a 100 mL bottle. There are roll-on sample options available as well, but they’re currently sold out.
My overall experience with this perfume was so good! I sprayed a little on my wrists and dabbed a few drops behind my ears before heading to yesterday’s church service and the light, summery scent stuck with me for the remainder of the day. I didn’t have to re-apply nor did I have to double check to see if it was still working its magic. Basically, you don’t need to slather a bunch on to get the full effect of its smell. My younger sister was a little questionable with its intoxicating floral notes, but I had no complaints. So, if you’re a woman who loves an energetic yet romantic aroma, 1st Femme is the answer to all you prayers! Pair it with your conservative, business-casual workwear essentials throughout the week or sprinkle a small amount on for a night out with your boyfriend on the weekend, the versatility of this fragrance is unparalleled.
1st Femme’s #GirlBoss Approved fragrance isn’t the only thing that makes this brand so wonderfully powerful. It turns out that the company also has a newsletter available called ‘The Femme Club’ that “strives to educate, connect and supports influential women“.
According to their official site, the mission is also aimed “towards promoting women in every industry while increasing the visibility of their achievements as a way to inspire the next generation of female leaders. [1st Femme] also supports educational, cultural, philanthropic and social endeavors that enrich the lives of women within a community through mentorship, networking and volunteerism“. Now, how bossy is that? I love it!
And, it’s official: I’m now a fan of the blossoming 1st Femme empire. Can’t wait to see what #GirlBoss/founder Cindy Nkem Siren has in store for upcoming products. 🙂
I’d also like to extend a special thank you to Ivy of Echoing Soundz for granting me the opportunity to work with their company. And, I also want to say ‘gracias’ to 1st Femme for creating one of the sexiest scents I’ve ever encountered. Keep slaying!
