Posted in fragrance, skincare with tags , , , on September 24, 2008 by LPB

I  pampered myself by indulging in Jo’s sophisticated organic fragrance and oils collection. I recently bought two decadent and sophisticated bath oils, Amka & Usiku.


Amka – Wake
With a romantic heart of Iranian rose otto, Egyptian jasmine and bright fresh top notes of neroli and bergamot, Amka is a fragrance of energy and spontaneity. Green mandarin and sweet orange add a fresh, vibrant layer, and the whole combination is founded in a soft, spicy base of cedarwood.

AMKA -This concentrated, restorative bath oil contains a blend of healing Persian rose otto with reviving Egyptian jasmine, neroli from Comoro Island and bergamot from the Mediterranean coast; It’s uplifting & reviving.
Ingredients : Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil*, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil*, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil*, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil*, Juniperus Virginiana (Cedarwood Virginian) Oil*, Juniperus Virginiana (Cedarwood Virginian) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Petitgrain/ Orange Bitter/ Neroli) Oil, Rosa Damascena (Rose Otto) Flower Oil, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Oil, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, Citral, Citronellol, Paullinia Cupana (Guarana) Seed Extract*, Panax Ginseng Root Extract*, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract*, Tocopherol. *Organically grown (93.5% of product)      

Usiku – Night
Warm and sensual fragrance with a fresh, vibrant edge, Usiku combines top notes of rosemary and pineneedle with a spicy hit of cardamom and hot ginger. A complex heart of coriander, clove and clary sage give way to the aromatic woody aromas of Moroccan cedarwood, patchouli and vetiver. Earthy and sophisticated, this is a scent for men and women alike.

USIKU – Inspired by the sensual steam room of the Moroccan harem, this highly concentrated and deeply aromatic bath essence combines the soothing, relaxing properties of cedarwood and vetiver with cardamom and ginger to warm the heart and lift the spirits. 
Ingredients : Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil*, Cedrus Atlantica (Cedarwood) Bark Oil*, Rosmarinum officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil*, Bulnesia sarmienti (Guaiawood) Oil, Pinus sylvestris (Pine) Leaf Oil*, Elettaria cardamomum (Cardamom) Seed Oil*, Salvia sclarea (Clary) Oil*, Myrocarpus Frondosus (Cabreuva) Oil, Vetiveria zizanoides (Vetivert) Root Oil*, Pogostemon cablin (Patchouli) Oil*, Eugenia caryophyllata (Clove) Flower Oil*, Coriandrum sativum (Coriander) Seed Oil*, Zingiber officinale (Ginger) Root Oil*, Cistus Labdaniferus (Ciste) Oil, Linalool, Limonene, Eugenol, Geraniol, Farnesol, Arnica Montana Flower Extract*, Echinacea Angustifolia Leaf Extract*, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*, Hypericum Perforatum (St John’s Wort) Extract*, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract*, Tocopherol. *Organically grown (97.5% of product)
However, i prefer to use Usiku during the day  & Amka during the night; fresh Usiku helps me to concentrate & focus, while sensual Amka unwinds & heals my soul.
