Smell Green with Roots Source

Went to check out the new Roots eco-fragrances this morning and loved all the goodies! They were all made with the ‘notes’ & ‘ingredients’ in the 2 scents.

Roots Adds Two New Eco-Fragrances to its Portfolio
This spring, Roots will be premiering two additions to its fragrance portfolio with the launch of its first eco-fragrances for women: Roots Source Bamboo and Roots Source Red Tea. Two fragrances for her that are inspired by the earth’s natural beauty.

“Concern for the environment has always been one of our core values at Roots,” says Michael Budman, Co-Founder of Roots. “The launch of our first eco-fragrance compliments our recent introduction of other natural products and we will continue to be champions of earth-friendly causes.”

“The natural philosophy and commitment to the environment of Roots makes it perfect for an eco-fragrance” says Jeffery Wagstaff, President of Coty Canada Inc. “The launch of Roots Source marks an increased effort on our part to create an eco-friendlier product, including our attention to its packaging.”

The new Roots Source fragrances use 100% natural-based alcohol, derived from corn, and contain no animal ingredients. Roots Source Bamboo contains bamboo extract, rich in mineral and organic proteins, and Roots Source Red Tea contains antioxidizing gogi berry extract. Each fragrance is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and silicones.

ROOTS SOURCE BAMBOO with Bamboo Extract, Eau de Parfum
The top of this fruity floral fragrance opens with sparkling mandarin and crisp green apple, combined with the freshness of crushed leaves. At the heart of the fragrance are the voluptuous florals of orange blossom and pink freesia, enhanced by the luscious lotus flower. Hints of warm soft woods round out the base, infused with delicate and feminine vanilla. Roots Source Bamboo also contains the natural oils of galbanum, lemon, mandarin, rose petal and ylang-ylang.
Perfumer: Richard Herpin, Firmenich

ROOTS SOURCE RED TEA with Gogi Berry Extract, Eau de Parfum (I LOVE THIS ONE)
Red Tea, a fruity floral, opens with invigorating mango and watery melon with red tea leaf to revitalize your chi. Centering the inner self and the heart of the fragrance are lush red fruit, robois tea and strawberry flower. The pure essence of hibiscus flower appeases the soul and rounds out the base along with white birch wood, warm musk and a hint of orris. Red Tea also contains the natural extracts in the form of mandarin oil, patchouli oil, and elemi oil.
Perfumer: Celine Barel, IFF

Laid Off Camp

Misery loves company, as the saying goes, but so, too—one could argue—do creative ideas. It should come as no great surprise, then, to see growing numbers of laid-off professionals coming together at newly launched LaidOffCamps to network, brainstorm and find inspiration for the next phase of their careers.

Founded in January, LaidOffCamp organizes free, ad-hoc gatherings of unemployed and nontraditionally employed people—including freelancers and entrepreneurs—who want to share ideas and learn from each other. Sessions at LaidOffCamp meetings address topics such as living on an extreme budget, building a personal brand, how to be a freelance consultant and more. The camps are based on the Bar Camp model in which all attendees participate, and there are no prescheduled presentations. All planning and coordination is done through the LaidOffCamp wiki. The first day-long LaidOffCamp took place earlier this month in donated space in San Francisco, and was reportedly packed to bursting with attendees and potential employers alike. Many more LaidOffCamps are planned, beginning next month in Los Angeles.

Necessity is the mother of invention, to use another oft-repeated saying. It may be rough going these days, but it’s also a time of opportunity, both for innovators and for sponsors. Apply free love and/or sympvertising today, and reap the rewards for years to come!
