More on Tallulah Jane…
Last week Green Diva correspondent Sandy Holtzman told us about the fabulous eco-friendly, organic perfume line, Tallulah Jane. This week we received samples – wooohoooo. We had a ton of fun spraying all 8 scents onto our “test dummy” GD Mizar, unfortunately, in our over-zealousness, we kind of over-did it and it was hard to enjoy! But, we did all agree that we loved the 333 scent and had a hard time discerning after that . . .
