In Love with Harvey Prince Mini Rollers
When I first joined Birchbox several years ago, I just figured hey, a box of awesome samples to my door every month for just $10? Awesome. However, It’s been a lot more than that. I’ve been dedicated the awesomeness of Amway’s Artistry makeup and skincare line for its high quality in terms its organic, pure and eco-friendly ingredients (no fillers) made right here in the USA, as well as the amazing work its done for my skin and the fact that it’s eliminated the need to ever worry about touching up my makeup throughout the day. But due to the obvious nature of this blog, I love discovering what else is out there! I’ll always stick to Artistry but it’s so fun to me to see what everyone else is up to.
Fragrances for me haven’t really ever been a huge thing, as I normally just saw them as one more step to remember in the morning…and I really only used them if I was to go out at night. I admit I do have and love Lady Gaga’s and Rihanna’s perfumes, but I only used them for special occasions and thought they were a bit too strong and possibly too processed for daily use. Birchbox introduced me to Harvey Prince, with my new favorite scent, Journey (now renamed Sincerely). Harvey Prince fragrances are made in the USA, are 100% cruelty free, and include zero phthalates, parabens, sulfates, benzene, propylene glycol, GMOs, or triclosan. They are also rigorously tested, adhering to the very strict rules of the International Fragrance Association for toxicity and allergins and are created using the finest essential and natural oils from around the world! You can smell the quality of these scents…each one is flirty, fresh and contain hints of all sorts of different fruits, flowers and spices. I subscribe to their newsletter, which offers a free mini roller of each of their most popular scents every now and then (with the deal being to only pay shipping). Since I don’t use a ton of perfume and I love variety, I loved this idea, and jumped at each one of these chances to have a little bit of every Harvey Prince fragrance at my disposal every morning! It’s also awesome that every purchase has included a sample of another one to try out. My favorites so far are of course Sincerely, and Ageless, which has a delicious touch of grapefruit, and I LOVE grapefruit! Check below for the others that I’ve accumulated and now use on a regular basis!
Harvey Prince products use only eco-friendly & high-quality ingredients and come wrapped in handcrafted packaging. Our fragrances are featured extensively in the press, from The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Prevention and The Economist to NBC’s Today Show, CBS’s Early Show, and the New York Daily News.”
“Now, smell as young as you feel. Inspired by scientific research and crafted with love, Ageless by Harvey Prince defies your skin’s natural age-revealing scent. Its notes are an inviting blend of pink grapefruit, pomegranate, luscious mango, with a dry down of jasmine and natural musk. Here’s the secret: Ageless is inspired by recent studies conducted by the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, which find pink grapefruit and mango to be the olfactory antidote to aging. The fragrant notes disguise the familiar scent of age, caused by the breakdown of particular fatty acids in your skin. Women from around the world are loving Ageless; based on their testimonials and our own trials, Ageless makes you feel and smell 8-12 years younger. The top note: Mango, Apple, pineapple, pomegranate, Pink grapefruit, and leafy greens. Middle notes: Jasmine, Lilly of the Valley, Cherry blossom, peony. Bottom notes: Precious wood, and vanilla.
Style: Fresh. Sensual. Luminous.” I’d have to agree! I absolutely LOVE the grapefruit touch here, and the additional notes are just the right amount to compliment it without being overbearing. This is a favorite and I might need another one soon! Purchase Ageless here.

“The spritz that greets you with a smile. The world’s a busy place. Let time stand still for a moment and with one spritz taste the sweetness of Meyer lemon in your cold glass of lemonade. Smell the pink plumerias budding and revel in the jubilant tweets of the nearby hummingbird. Before diving back into reality, say “Hello” to your body and soul. Harvey Prince is thrilled to bring you a splash of spring with our latest, hippest, most energizing fragrance, “Hello.” With a twist of citrus in homage to that fresh squeezed glass on the breakfast table. The subtle yet, invigorating notes are layered with Summer Forsythia, an early Spring floral, to bring out the blossoming glow within you. As the scent wears through the day, you’ll be warmly greeted with the enchanting smell of Pink Plumerias, found in the fragrant floral Leis of Hawaii bestowed upon guests, friends, and loved ones. Embrace your surroundings; reach out, smell, touch! The warm and soft rays of sunshine on your shoulders will keep you company through the day. Take a whiff and just say, “You had me at Hello.” Notes: Meyer Lemon, White Grapefruit, Satsuma Mandarin, Summer Forsythia, Pink Plumeria, Wild Verbena, Tahitian Vanilla, Sensual Musk. Style: Welcoming. Loving. Refreshing.” This one is one of their signatures I think…and to me it’s a great choice if you want a little bit of sweetness without smelling too sweet! None of Harvey Prince’s fragrances are overbearing, but this one is delicate and subtle. Purchase Hello here.
“Stress relief has never smelled so good. ‘I am all stressed out.’ She was definitely aware of how tense she was. It had been a draining day from the first moments of the morning, when her son revealed the ‘D’ on his English test, her daughter spilled juice on her new dress, her train was delayed for an hour, and the computers were down in the office. She had left home so hastily that she forgot to apply her new fragrance…until now. As soon as the calming, soothing, comforting aroma of Madagascar Vanilla caressingly enveloped her, the day’s travails seemed to fade into a blur. The more she inhaled it, the more relaxed she became. So calm that when her husband called to tell her that his mother was coming to town, it had no effect on her mood. ‘For a week,’ he added. She inhaled sweet Madagascar Vanilla again. Deeply. Harvey Prince has refined the essence of Vanilla from Madagascar as an aromatic alternative to Valium and Prozac, strong enough to combat visiting mothers-in-law.” This one is actually a newer addition, created as “the very essence of what nature has intended. From sensuous to sexual. From energetic to serene. No pulse point necessary. Each one is to be placed on any part of your body. One at a time…possibly more than one at a time? It’s your call. And they will last. And last. And last. Why? Because pleasure should never be fleeting.” I definitely love vanilla scents! This one is really unique. Many people might think vanilla is too strong of a scent, but this one is balanced out really well with a spicy touch and like the others, is nice and light! This one is also 100% vegan. Purchase Madagascar Vanilla here.
“The scent that transports you. The road of life is invigorating, mystical, and often unpredictable. Stay enlightened with Sincerely; the scent that opens your mind and awakens your senses. Exotic, inspiring, and full of surprises, Sincerely whisks you away from the day-to-day. Indulge in the spicy seduction of Indian Tuberose, the striking and sweet sensation of Turkish Cyclamen and the purifying calm of Spanish Mandarin. Sincerely’s scent opens up the richness and mystery sparking the beginning of your own personal odyssey. Savor the delicate notes of South African Freesia, Japanese Orange flower, and Moroccan rose – it’s like sipping a sweet, Alsatian wine in the light of the sun! Hints of spicy Indonesian Clove Bud trickle in while the deep and intriguing Australian Sandalwood transports you to a faraway land. Sincerely’s relaxing and mystical powers will stir your imagination and reconnect you with your own destiny. Notes: Indonesian Clove Bud, Australian Sandalwood, Moroccan Rose, French Bergamot, Indian Tuberose, Japanese Orange Flower, Lebanese Cedarwood, Turkish Cyclamen, South African Freesia. Style: Exotic. Awakening. Transformative. Find yourself. Then lose yourself all over again.” My favorite along with Ageless! This one is so delicious…its floral tones are so delightful and so perfectly balanced, that you can’t help but smile after rolling or spraying it on! It’s very feminine and flirty and I just love the addition of cedarwood, as cedar is another of my most favorite scents ever. Purchase Sincerely here.
“This perfume flirts for you. It starts with whispers…’Who’s that girl?’ The irresistible and flirty fragrance of Temptress captures the imagination of the entire room with the subtle, sexy allure of flowers and spice. ‘What’s her secret?’ Lean in closer. The fragrance contains notes of pumpkin pie and lavender, which have been shown to evoke a more passionate response in men than any other smell. Why do men find these two scents so arousing? Experts believe men subconsciously associate pumpkin and lavender with happy, positive and stimulating memories. An encounter with Temptress reveals top notes of sweet lavender and a cocktail of bright citrus, followed by a mingling of feminine florals freesia, ylang ylang, and jasmine. Delicate spices and warm nighttime amber offer a graceful and balanced flourish. Notes: Lavender, Pumpkin Pie, Citrus, Jasmine, Freesia, Ylang Ylang, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Ambers. Style: Seductive. Sparkling. Wicked.” Now this one captivated me at pumpkin with lavender. Lavender is one of my all time favorite scents, and probably the most calming one for me. I have a few lavender essential oils that I use religiously to help me sleep! Temptress is a very fresh, and the pumpkin scent is super subtle. I pick up more of the lavender, jasmine and citrus notes here. It’s definitely seductive and a great addition to your perfume collection! Purchase Temptress here.
“The scent of liberation. Get whisked away by Yogini, the fragrance that calms the mind, soothes the soul, and frees the spirit. Relaxing, light, lasting. Yogini is the glow that stays with you. Experience the purifying powers of sandalwood, the age-defying glow of grapefruit, and the sensual warmth of Egyptian myrrh. Crafted with the highest quality natural essences and oils, Yogini is Nature’s antidote to stress: it will make you feel as good as you smell. Notes: Sandalwood, golden amber, sensual incense, Egyptian myrrh, pink grapefruit, blackcurrant buds, lily of the valley, star jasmine, rose petals, ylang-ylang, cardamom, madagascar vanilla. Style: Elevating. Luxurious. Serene. Because life’s best secrets are no secret.” I just love how Harvey Prince thinks of every type of woman here. This is a really nicely calming scent, and it also contains grapefruit and vanilla tones like some of the others. It does have an essential oil feeling to it, living up to its earthy, spiritual name! I use this one if I’m heading out to the beach or am about to engage in outdoor activities, as it keeps me feeling fresh and elevated…but I’m sure you could also spritz a little on before a nice long yoga session. The rose petals stick out too, and roses are another huge favorite scent of mine…just about as calming as lavender! This one has such a nice balance and I’m sure you’d love it too. Purchase Yogini here.
“Your Signature Scent. Your personality says a lot about who you are and so should your fragrance. Harvey Prince Signature perfume is designed to get you noticed. Designed to be your ‘signature’ fragrance. You wear perfume because it makes you feel beautiful and brings people close to you. As you confidently ride the elevator to your next appointment, a gorgeous, classy woman quietly asks, “What is that incredible scent you’re wearing?

It starts a conversation. It brings you compliments. It uplifts and energizes you. Signature does the flirting for you.

Notes: Fresh Citrus, Japanese Mikan, Pink Grapefruit, Hawaiian Jasmine, Sacred Lotus, Rajnigandha (Tuberose), Japanese Honeysuckle, Exotic Amber, Madagascar Vanilla, & Sexy Patchouli.” I don’t actually have this one in the mini roller, but I have a couple of samples of it that were sent along with the rollers above! To me, this is similar to Hello, but a little stronger. It’s definitely more on the bold side, but it is definitely delicious! The jasmine and honeysuckle scents seem to dominate here and it will get you noticed, for sure! Purchase Signature here.
