Introducing Le Couvent des Minimes - the latest addition to the b-glowing.com family. Our staff is already addicted to this luxurious brand.

Inspired by the long tradition of plant-based care and well-being used at the convent of Mane in the south of France, the product recipes use no unnecessary ingredients to maintain the effective simplicity Le Couvent des Minimes is known for.

You are going to LOVE the elegant design of the packaging. Each container features a decorative engraving, paying homage to the ancestral traditions of the convents and monasteries. We love this historical touch that celebrates the brand's muse.

Our Le Couvent des Minimes staff picks include the affordable and fragrant Soap Bar Eau des Missions - a steal at only $7! We are also loving the Gardener's Hand Healer, which nourishes and repairs dry, damaged hands.

Top Picks: Fragrances to 'Fall' For

Posted on 09/19/2013

Shop Fragrances here.

The leaves are slowly changing and as they fall, it's a great time to explore new fashion, beauty, and especially fragrances.

In this week's 'Top Picks', our b-glowing.com staff is raving about some of their favorite scents for the new season.

Juliette Has a Gun Miss Charming: Elegant and sensual Moroccan Rose combines with wild fruit and musk to create this bold and deep fragrance that reminds us of a shot of whisky and a velvet blazer all at once. “Miss Charming is a great name for this perfume, because that is exactly what it is. A beautiful rose fragrance with depth and femininity. Even if you aren’t a traditional fan of rose, it will charm your socks off!”

Sarah Horowitz Perfect Coconut Milk: This eau de parfum is easy to wear, and guaranteed to please the nose of everyone around you. Light enough for any occasion, the fusion of coconut, almond, and a hint of orange blossom is absolutely lovely and an all-around staff favorite. "This is a year-round scent, but it's expecially great for fall because the vanilla and coconut are so warm together. It just reminds you of curling up with a good book and a soft blanket."

Tokyo Milk Dead Sexy No. 6: Picking just one scent from this line was difficult, but we decided on this white orchid, vanilla, and exotic woods-infused offering. Don't let the scull and crossbones scare you, while this scent has a deep rich tone, it's still light enough for almost anyone to wear daily. “There is absolutely something sexy about this perfume, but it also very wearable and professional. The woodsy and ebony scents give an air of maturity while the vanilla warms it up to leave you feeling super confident.”

Aromachology Sophisticated and Sensual: Who says pink isn't for fall? This fresh and playful floral scent is a nice option for anyone looking to take a little summer with them this season. Grapefruit and white lily play nice together, while sandalwood adds the warmth we look for in autumn fragrances. “This is a scent for every day. It is light, pleasant and even a little playful. The white flower and citrus combination can be worn by anyone.”
