Flora Theo Natural Perfume Review
Get Local, Perfume, Reviews - August 8th, 2012

Flora is a little boutique located in Downtown Portland. It’s best described as an eclectic mix of gifty things, including jewelry, tea, funky doodads, bath things, and more. I promise, if you are looking for a gift, either small or large, you will find it at Flora. There is, quite literally, something for everyone.

Flora also offers their own line of sprays, balms, and perfumes. When I was there, I just HAD to pick up the Theo Natural Perfume, because, well. THEO. It wasn’t named after my cat, but anything that shares a name with Sir Pawsome has to be good. Theo has notes of notes of cocoa, bourbon geranium and woods, specifically cedarwood. Ordinarily, geranium is a non-starter for me. In this blend, it adds a freshness that’s a nice counterpoint to the richness of the cocoa and the cedarwood. Theo goes on rich, and stays rich. As it warms on your skin, a sweetness starts to develop, but it’s not cloying. Theo is ultimately a very comforting scent, like a wool blanket you’d pull around yourself on a cold day.

Flora Natural Perfumes are made with only pure essential oils, absolutes and organic botanical infusions. They are blended in a base of fractionated coconut oil and/or jojoba oil. They come in a dainty rollerball bottle, and it’s small. There isn’t a size listed, but I’d guess it’s around a quarter to a half an ounce. Theo is $35.

If you should find yourself in Downtown Portland with some time to kill, do check out Flora and sniff the perfumes. I’m sure you’ll find something you like.
