    it's a unicorn perfume!

    Back in the '90s, my camp counselor Kelli was a Flower Child.  She had a tangle of brown hair, a pile of batik dresses, and a perfume she made herself, procured from floral oils in her hometown of San Juan Capistrano.

    I worshipped this woman, and I swore her mix of dandelion water and rose extracts smelled exactly like a unicorn.  Now, I'm kind of proved right.

    This month, A Beautiful Life releases their new fragrance, called I Heart Unicorns.  A heady mix of lemon, peppermint, and pomegranite, the scent was designed to evoke memories of the '80s and '90s, and somehow, it totally succeeds.  This bottle smells exactly like the woman I wanted to be, and the fact that it has a pink-and-purple graphic on the label makes it that much better.

    Also, it reminds us of the Dar Williams' song, The Babysitter's Here
