Launch of New Line of Fragrances that Match Scent w/ Female Personality

I know it is always ladies hobby to look for some better fragrances to match your personalities. A new independent fragrance Brand WILD SPIRIT Launched July 14 in Walmart stores nationwide and online June 20 at and

Wild Spirit is a fragrance brand with real ingredients at real prices that celebrates her individuality. What we put on our bodies is as important as what we put in them- that’s why Wild Spirit products are vegan, contain natural essential oils and are free from parabens, sulphates and dyes. Wild Spirit is proud to be cruelty free and formulated here in the USA.

Wild Spirit, inspired by sister brand Raw Spirit, was created by New York-based co-founders, fragrance designer and CEO Joyce Lanigan and renowned fashion photographer Russell James. The fragrance collection consists of four scents, “Spring Jasmine”, “Driftwood”, “Chill” and “First Snow,” each embodying distinct personalities designed to resonate and connect with a specific consumer. Each seasonal name possesses a double-connotation; some might say the Spring Jasmine girl resembles the season of Spring- being perky, energetic and upbeat. Or that the First Snow girl is resilient and cool like the season of winter. But it’s not to say that one doesn’t prefer a little Chill in the dead heat of summer.

Each bottle features unique female influencers of diverse ethnicities, shot by Russell James in natural backdrops, and shines a light on the individual personalities by putting their touch on what Wild Spirit is to them. The influencers featured are IMG models Ashley Moore (@ashley_moore), Victoria Germyn (@victoriagermyn), Laura James (@jameslaura), and Eva Adams (@mevadams).

The consumer, seen as demographic ages ranging from 16-45, because age isn’t our focus, but her personality and outlook on life. The scents were designed to be combined- layer, mix and match to create your own unique scent that embodies personality, mood, occasion and aspirations.

“As a fragrance designer and a consumer, I realized that there was a white space for affordable luxury fragrances. We want to encourage the wearer to experiment with scent and to embrace their own unique self – allow their “wild spirit” to shine through.” – Joyce Lanigan.

“Walmart is a destination for Beauty, and we know their more than 140 million shoppers a week are going to love WILD SPIRIT.”  “We are in constant pursuit of the best assortment of our items for our beauty customers, and today more than ever, that includes naturally-inspired, clean products that are both on-trend and affordable,” – Laura Buntain, senior buyer, Walmart Beauty. “We are beyond thrilled to bring our customers this line of eco-conscious, luxurious fragrances at an incredible value.”  

Scent details: 

Spring Jasmine” – Put a spring in your step. Sassy, Cheeky & Cute. Inspired by a petally, white floral creation highlighted by a dominant creamy jasmine signature and enhanced with specialty tea notes.

Driftwood” – Fresh & Airy.  Alluring, Trend-setting & Original. by fallen trees, sundrenched and salted, on a white sound beach surrounded by lush vegetation and tropical florals.

Chill” – Delicious and Tranquil. Spontaneous, Free-Spirit & Bohemian. Inspired by the warm, creamy woods that are contrasted with fresh, airy accents to reflect the radiance of a golden beach sunset on a crisp day.

“We aim to be straightforward, authentic and relatable and a little cheeky. We don’t talk at our girl but instead we are in an ongoing conversation with her. We want to engage, interact and advise by creating a trusted bond and relationship instead of coming off preachy or pushy.” – Additionally adds Creator, Joyce Lanigan.

DrySleeping was born. McRae is thrilled to be able to help others enjoy what was elusive to him for so long – a good night’s sleep.

This is our 3rd summer in Las Vegas! We are still acclimating to the desert heat and how to be summer smart, so I am always on the hunt for new products. As you know, we are expecting and with all the baby stuff coming into the house, I have been really overwhelmed. Babies can’t use certain products, pregnant mama’s can’t use products with Salicylic Acid, and dad just wants something simple and doesn’t smell girly!  But finally, there is a product that is good for the whole family.

I am a huge fan of Aloe Vera and have been using it for ages but the Desert Harvest Aloe Vera Gele is in a league of its own! First of all, it comes in the green bottle, which protects the integrity of the product. This is optimum for UV protection for light-sensitive contents.  The easy pump makes sure the perfect amount of product comes out every time. Using Aloe has helped my super dry shins!
