I had just returned home from an incredible trip to Italy where I had traveled the streets of Rome, glided across the Venetian canals, and explored the Italian culture. As I stepped off of the plane and turned on my phone, a text from my best friend was waiting that read, “Can’t wait to see you! I’m by the luggage when you get here.” It was then that it hit me. I completely forgot to bring her a souvenir as I promised and now I would have to see her in just a few minutes! I quickly dug through my bag to see if there was anything I could pass off as an Italian souvenir when I stumbled across the best sweet perfume, Baciami by Harvey Prince.
When I met up with my friend, I gave her a big hug and handed her Baciami. “Here,” I said. “I bought the best sweet perfume for you because it reminds me so much of Italy! Try it,” I urged her.
She uncapped the fragrance and rolled it gently onto her wrists. Fresh lemon, tangy cassis and ripe pineapple burst in the air taking her by surprise. “Wow, I can just imagine the fresh fruit markets lining the corners of little Italian villages,” she said, closing her eyes.
“Do you smell the floral notes of jasmine and calla lily, too? They remind me so much of the Italian gardens that I saw while I was there. I knew I had to get Baciami for you,” I said, improvising.
“I can’t wait to hear all about your trip!” she said. “Just by smelling the warm brown sugar, sandalwood, vanilla and musk in Baciami, I kind of feel like I was right there with you! But just one thing…”
“Yes?” I asked.
“I know you didn’t get the best sweet perfume in Italy, you got it in the Harvey Prince online store!”  she said with a big smile on her face.
“What, what do you mean?” I said, stumbling over my words.
“Of course I know about Harvey Prince! He makes 100% cruelty free, vegan and gluten free perfumes that are made in the USA with the finest natural ingredients and best essential oils!” she said.
“You’re right…” I said reaching for the bottle of Baciami and starting to apologize.
“Hey! Not so fast. I think I’ll hold onto the best sweet perfume, anyways!” she said, as we both laughed.
