Newly obsessed – new scent from luxury perfumer, The Harmonist.
2020 sees the launch of two new scents: A dyad of perfumes which embody the twin energies of Yin and Yang and pay tribute to our most important celestial bodies, the Sun and the Moon.
Moon Glory launching March 9th and Sun Force launching in September. This collection is named Prequel because without the Sun and the Moon, without Yin and Yang energy, there could be no life on Earth.
So yah, right up my alley.
Lola Tillyeave, the founder, invited the world-renowned LA tattoo artist Dr. Woo to collaborate on co-creating the visual expression of the Prequel collection given his unique and distinctive depictions of constellations and celestial bodies. The Prequel Collection is a limited-edition of 2,000 bottles, and each bottle comes with a numbered medallion signed by Dr. Woo. This is about as close to Dr. Woo as I’m going get. Have you tried booking with him? Forget it.
— Today, the line offers 12 scents (including the new Moon Glory) put together by Givaudan perfumer Guillaume Flavigny, who previously masterminded many of the most well-known recognizable scents in the world
— The Harmonist scents are said to boast one’s destiny in the fields of prosperity, relationships, wisdom, seduction, creativity and prestige. I’ll take it. Depending on what you are looking for in a given moment in your life, you may choose a different perfume. For now, I’m sticking with this one.
— Translating this philosophy’s expression into scent, The Harmonist creates holistic fragrances designed to cultivate balance, well-being and beauty. Our mission, clearly.
— Inspired by both the art of fragrance as well as the ancient philosophy of Feng Shui, Lola Tillyeave founded The Harmonist in 2013, the first Maison de Parfum which infuses French savoir-faire with the ancient Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui
— Available through the brand’s newly opened boutiques on Avenue George V in Paris and on Melrose Place in L.A, and at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC.

A self-care line for humans with vaginas and humans without vaginas who love vaginas™?.
WHAT’S OUT THERE AIN’T WORKING, FOLKS.
Ladies! We are in a new-gen of vag-love. Out are the creepy chemical ‘odor-blocking’ washes from CVS. Let’s talk honestly about vaginal health and sexual wellness in a way that takes a sustainable, proactive, self-care approach.
Buh-bye to glycerin-based lubes and no thank you to bacteria/fungus feed on the sugar in glycerin. Do we really need another UTI?
I am obsessed with my bottle of Quim. I never thought of taking care of my V in this way! Now, it’s the first step I take when I get out of the shower and the last self-care I do before bed (while I use my VFit!!OBSESSED!!!!)
Intimate wellness is now a number one priority for me, especially as I am now deep into middle age. So thrilled to add Quim to my v-love-routine. And oh swoon, the packaging!!! To die for. This is a must to get your V-care going.
“Our mission at Quim is to create products that deepen the connection you have with your own body and empower you to care for it in the way that makes sense for you. Because it’s high time we started treating our quims with the same TLC as our diligently serumed/SPF’d/charcoal-masked faces.”– Cyo Ray Nystrom & Rachel Washtien, Co-founders of Quim

1.5-2mg CBD (3-5 pumps)
Apricot Oil, Hazelnut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, MCT Oil, Calendula, Olive Oil, Damiana, Tea Tree Oil, Violet, Hemp CBD (Full Spectrum Hemp Flower Oil)
CBD or Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis. It has been shown to help moisturize delicate skin and alleviate inflammation and pain. Many companies in the skincare industry are now adopting this versatile ingredient into their products. Companies looking to add CBD based products to their lineup may want to contact a cbd manufacturer.
Tea Tree is an essential oil that has been applied topically for hundreds of years. Think of it as Mother Nature’s antifungal and antiseptic (helps keeps those UTIs and yeast infections at bay). However, let me emphasize that this is a prevention method of UTI’s and yeast infections, not a cure. If you suspect that you have a UTI, you should get checked out by a urologist like those at Advanced Urology.
Damiana is a plant that has been known for its aphrodisiac properties whose use dates back to Mayan civilization. It has been used to help increase sexual arousal and stamina, increase the frequency of orgasms, and reduce vaginal dryness.
Violet has historically been used topically as a circulatory stimulant as well as to soothe dry or chaffed skin.
Apricot Kernel Oil contains gamma linoleic acid which can help support skin health. It also contains Vitamin A and E, and is known to help soothe irritated skin.
VEDA is the perfect combination of holistic ancient modalities with a totally savvy modern flair.
The perfect balance of our physical and spiritual selves.
The treatments are a combo of Ayurveda, Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Astro Psychology, Physical Therapy, Cupping, Hypnotherapy, Energy Healing, Physical Release Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, and Diet Management for preventative measures and in healing the mind, body, soul.
Seriously, what else IS THERE?
“We are not your standard wellness center, our approach encourages the maintenance of health, strengthening the immune system, removing toxins and renewing energy by paying close attention to balance. Starting with a Consultation, our Therapists work with you to determine what internal imbalances may be causing discomfort, food sensitivities or intolerances, a sluggish metabolism, digestive issues, infertility or skin problems (just to name a few). Our Therapists use your test results to customize a dietary, physical and supplement protocol that fits your lifestyle to repair and balance your biochemistry to promote optimal health and happiness.”
I walked into this gem of a retreat nestled right across from Urth Cafe. It is so pretty, you’ll want to sit and chill and well, never leave. Especially after being greeted by the loveliest of women, warm and open-armed – clearly in the mode to give and share their expertise.
The Ayurvedic principles seek to balance the natural elements: Water, Air, Earth and Fire. I need this is spades.
Panchakarma is something I have been dying to do. It’s a daily commitment ( 5 to 7 days) and this is the only place in town that offers it.
“This traditional healing system promotes deep relaxation in the mind while balancing the entire nervous system. All treatments integrate herbal oils from traditional recipes and are prescribed according to your specific body and mind type. Panchakarma also includes a unique diet program and counseling, basic yoga therapy, herbal teas and recommendations on herbal supplements.

Looking for a little pick me up during the holidays? I am in love with this super easy hand rejuvenation using Restylane® Lyft.
You don’t have to be over 40 to feel your hands are looking a bit…deflated. I am an artist and work with my hands. They are strong and because of this – muscle-y. They look…welp…tired. This treatment is incredible. Restylane® Lyft totally restored them to looking refreshed and well, younger. It’s a top rec treatment from all the editors here at Groomed LA.
Here are some deets:
- The first and only hyaluronic-acid based filler that is FDA-approved for the hands.
- Hyaluronic acid is already found in the body and keep skin looking younger and smooth. As we age, it diminishes and we loose volume in the skin, including the skin on the hands. This causes the bulging veins, and visible bones and tendons that make the hands look older.
- Restylane Lyft restores volume to the hands and softens the appearance of these lines and wrinkles, making hands look younger.
- The treatment is safe, and dissolvable, with natural looking results.
- According to a recent survey conducted by Galderma, 78% of women ages 40 or older wish they could change the way their hands look, 2/3 said they would have a non-surgical treatment to improve the appearance of their hands, and 65% think their hands make them look older than their age!
Restylane® Lyft is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler FDA approved to correct age-related volume loss in the back of hands.1,2 The injectable gel helps restore fullness to the back of the hands, resulting in more youthful-looking appearance.3
The Restylane® brand offers the broadest portfolio of HA fillers in the U.S., and Restylane Lyft is the first-ever HA dermal filler to receive FDA approval for an area other than the face.1,2
Actual user*. Individual results may vary. Treated with 3mL of Restylane Lyft in the left hand. 4 weeks after treatment.

Treating Bony, Wrinkled or Veiny Looking Hands with Restylane Lyft
As we age, we lose volume in the hands, which can result in the appearance of prominent wrinkles and bones, bulging veins and visible tendons.4 These signs of aging can make our hands look less youthful.4 Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved HA injectable solution for patients who are seeking more youthful looking hands.2,3
What to Expect from Treatment:
- Hands That Don’t Give Away Your Age
- Natural-Looking Results
- More Youthful-Looking Hands
- Results that May Last Up to Six Months3
Restylane Lyft is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural occurring substance in the skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. It diminishes as we age, and causes the skin to lose volume, increasing the chances for wrinkles to appear.
Restylane Lyft has a long track record of proven safety and efficacy and has been on the market for over 10 years.1,5 It is also the first and only dermal filler with three FDA-approved treatment areas – midface/cheek, nasolabial folds and now back of the hands.1,2
Restylane Lyft is clinically proven to last up to six months.3 The treatment is injected by a trained specialist, and works to add fullness to the back of the hands.1
