Our latest collection, “Les Bohemes” (The Bohemians) is a throwback to the age of Speakeasies & wild abandon… Are you looking for an escape from the next Great Depression? Let us take you into the backroom on a journey through time where the secret password is “Jitterbug” & the good times flow like Bathtub Gin… Rich, Ultra Decadent & Shamelessly heavy on the Natural Essences – just like the scents that were constructed during Perfume’s Golden Age of the 1920’s.
Soon to be available to the masses, this exquisite House Collection was designed to be worn alone or in layered combinations with each other. "Les Bohemes" were first used in creating custom perfumes during the Four Seasons' (Beverly Hills) event, “Everlasting Valentine’s Day.” Word of mouth about the collection quickly spread & now Opus Oils is releasing them in their very own collection (early 2011)…. So forget your everyday worries & “Name Your Poison.” These Affordable luxuries wont break your bank.

It's been an especially chaotic past couple of months for me, and I've been busier than ever completing several projects for Opus Oils....
I'm hoping to get to a more detailed blog on these exciting projects shortly, but I wanted to do a quick post noting a recent mention from one of our favorite Fragrant Friends - www.Cafleurebon.com!
We wont be releasing these fragrant gems until 2011, but here's a little teaser!
