DC at Night Posted on 23 Oct 14:40 , 0 comments
A recent trip to DC for the Nomaterra Pop-Up Shop in Capitol Hill lead to a spontaneous late night drive. We visiting some of the Capitol's most grand monuments, which resulted in these "dc in the dark" photos (taken with an iphone nonetheless).
In the middle sits our DC Cherry Blossom unisex fragrance, that is ideal for night—notes like musk, vanilla, black pepper, tobacco, and citrus make this an incredibly sexy scent for a night out on the Capitol town. The travel spray comes with a replacement unit, and is priced at $86.00, available to buy on www.nomaterra.com
Two weeks ago Nomaterra attended Missionelle's Art of Seduction
event at the Flatiron Hotel. At the event our founder Aggie discussed a number of scents and essential oils which are known to be aphrodisiacs and have been used throughout history in the art of seduction, which got us thinking about our own scents. Which of ours would be the best to use for a special date night, we wondered? As it turns out, our sultry Miami fragrance features six of these super seductive ingredients! Read on to learn about what those ingredients are and why they're so sexy!

Vanilla has always been known as a seductive oil; it increases production of sexual hormones (testosterone and estrogen), and there's a hefty dose of vanilla in our Miami fragrance! Miami also has musk in its base, which has a special effect on women. Musk makes women feel confident, sensual and sexy- men can't really smell it; women smell it 1000 times stronger than men do! But confidence is key in any seductive endeavor, so musk is a great thing to use!

Cleopatra, one of the most renowned lovers of all time, is reputed to have scented the sails of her ship with jasmine to seduce Mark Antony as she sailed to meet him. This sweet, pungent flower provides much of the sweetness found in our Miami scent.

Nomaterra was thrilled to be a part of Missionelle's Art of Seduction event at Toshi's Penthouse in the Flatiron Hotel last night! Our founder, Aggie Burnett, was invited to speak as part of a panel of fashion and beauty experts about the art of seduction. There was a lot of fantastic advice to be had, with gems like celebrity hairstylist Aleksandra Sasha Nesterchuk's insistence that to be seductive "you have to want to have sex with yourself!"
Following the panel, Nomaterra set up a fragrance corner where guests could try out a variety of different aphrodisiac blends. The blends were made with essential oils that are known aphrodisiacs such as lavender, ylang ylang, and jasmine. We also provided custom samples of our blends to guests so that they could test them out at home!
Thanks so much to everyone that came out and to Missionelle for allowing us to share our expertise. Happy Friday everyone!
