A favorite thing about my job: I get to meet super smart, interesting people who create fabulous products. One such person is the incredible Lisa Hoffman (the name's not a coincidence; she is, in fact, Mrs. Dustin Hoffman!). Hoffman's spent countless years as a traveling head of household (supporting said husband on film sets, kids in tow) and used those experiences as inspiration for her unique product line.

I'm a huge fan of Lisa Hoffman's neat single-use skincare and bath and body products so it was no surprise to me when her new fragrance duo crossed my desk and I instantly fell in love. The duo of super concentrated fragrance oils are meant to be worn to suit your olfactory tastes during the day and at night, and layered as such. The scent is Madagascar Orchid, with notes of jasmine, ylang ylang and peony; its aroma is sweet in a sexy, earthy way -- just subtle enough to be noticed, but not overpower a room. No wonder it's a favorite of hot mama-to-be Melissa Rycroft!

Even better, buy the scent and you'll give back to the environment! 20% of the worldwide sale of Madagascar Orchid will go towards The Rainforest Foundation!
