I am so excited to be releasing our new fragrance line! I didn’t think it would ever happen but I have been working on this for over a year now! I love perfumes, I can’t get enough. I have always wanted to design my own fragrance and about a year ago I had the chance to finally begin my very own fragrance line. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted in a fragrance but I did know that I wanted to be the one to pick and choose all the smells. I did some research and found tons of places that would send you several pre mixed scents to choose from but it just didn’t seem personal enough to me. So, I found the perfect place right here in Mississippi. I was able to meet with the lady and take her some of my favorite scents and she gave me some great ideas and now we have it perfected. It is a cool, clean, and refreshing scent. I decided to go with the body splash to be more affordable. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention my FAV part of this line: It can also be used as a spray on your linens! Yes, ladies it is safe to spray on your linens and fabrics at home to give your house a fresh smell.
The next step, after finding our scent, was giving it a GREAT NAME, “Joey”! Now, I am sure you are wondering where in the world I came up with the name Joey. Well, for those of you who know me know that my dad passed in 2006 in a boating accident. I had already opened Material Girls in Dogwood and was planning on making a trip to Hattiesburg with my dad to look at opening my second store when the accident happened. My dad was a huge influence on me as far as my business goes. Not a business decision goes by that I don’t stop and think “what would dad have done.” When it came time to name the fragrance I wanted it to be something meaningful. Not just a cute name but something that really could be close to my heart. I decided to name it after my dad “Joey.” I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without him and my mom. I am just so thankful to have this opportunity to share a little of my dad with all of you. I hope you love the fragrance and we can’t wait to see you at our Launch Party.
