better than boys: tsi-la organics...one of the best natural perfumes.

TSI-LA ORGANICS...just wow.
I'm not sure what happened, but Tsi-La (pronounced "chee-la") Organics never made it to me in time to get into my big post about natural perfumes.  Initially I was bummed, as I'd heard great things about them, but I actually think it's quite fortuitous as this organic perfume line is fully deserving of it's own conversation. 

Yes, everyone has their taste perfume-wise, but I have to say that I think these scents are just so modern, I can't imagine anyone turning them away. They are fresh, super pretty and just, well, happy-making.  In fact, after having sniffed the samples silly for days, I couldn't take it anymore and went and ordered Fiori D'Arancio (it's rather unreal). But, I must admit, it was a tough choice between that, Ilang Ilang and Fleur Sauvage...yes, I was in love with three perfumes from one company.  Total record, there.  Scent is very personal and I was shocked that each perfume was appealing to me.  

*Oh, and shhh...but the inside scoop is that Annie and Natalie (creators of Tsi-La) are closing in on a vanilla scent (L'Absolu Vanille) that they've been working on for some time now.  It's in the final stages, but you didn't hear it from me...well, you did, but...

First off, let me say that these perfumes are oils, which I love.  It feels so great when you're rubbing them into your skin.  
Let's get to it, what are they made from?  USDA Certified organic ingredients, pure extracts, vitamins, antioxidants, phytonutrients, essential oils, plant botanicals and food grade ingredients.  Beat that...I dare you.

If you visit their site, you'll see they sell mini perfumes for $44.  It's cool because you can get mini-sets, as well.  Their prices run from $44-$95.   

*I was sent these perfumes for review.  All opinions are my own.  Love the stuff.


  1. I really would love to get my hands on some natural/organic perfumes as I have allergies I have never been able to wear the regular (often celebrity) skins. I always feel like the UK lacks in this green department unless I'm not looking in the right places :)

    1. You have NO idea how much more awesome these natural perfumes smell. It all just makes sense when you sniff...

      I hope you find some in the UK...I'm going to look into that for you. I wouldn't say these are in department stores...yet! This green thing is still kinda new, but I would say that you should search online...that's where I get everything natural. Good luck!

  2. @sugarpuffish These are available in the UK from Naturisimo.com - they even have a sample set for sale. They seem to have a pretty good range of natural perfume brands actually although I'd love to see more samples available!

    1. That's sooo kind of you, Miriam. Thanks for helping a sister out. I have thee best readers!

  3. I have ilang ilang & fleur savage. Love em!

    1. I loooove the two of them, as well. It's crazy how all of them are magnificent. It's one brand where I would definitely recommend people buy the whole mini-bottle pack! Thanks for reading, M!
