Kaponga is a natural line of Perfumes and lotions from The Cream Perfume Company; Based in Southern California, this young company caters to people all over the world who share an appreciation for natural, effective and affordable personal care products.
"It is believed Egyptians were the first people to incorporate perfumes (primarily natural incense and ointments) into their culture around 3000bc. The methods of extracting natural scents, although primitive by comparison, were technically not much different than they are today. Perfumes were often mixtures of oil and crushed petals or herbs until the Arabs later learned to extract oils from flowers through the process of distillation.
Strolling the cobbled streets of Grasse, past cafes, the Notre Dame du Puy cathedral and the 12th-century bishop's palace, a visitor would find it hard to imagine that this medieval Provencal town has assumed the mentorship role associated with today's billion-dollar perfume industry. With soil and climate that are perfect for fields of jasmine, tuberose and hyacinth, perfume has a long and storied history in Grasse.
We work exclusively with internationally renowned perfumers and the local artisans of Grasse to develop premium nature identical oil blends, ECOCERT certified organic essentials, absolutes and pure plant and fruit extracts. Our perfumes are all phthalate free and contain no sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic dyes, triclosan, GMO, PPG, MEA, DEA, TEA or formaldehyde donors. Our products are cruelty free.
Additionally, our perfumed body moisturizers are 100% vegan, wheat and gluten free, contain no glycol, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones, synthetic additives or synthetic fragrances.
We look for the world's best ingredients to luxuriously hydrate and repair your skin combined with unique fragrances to simply delight your senses. We focus on environmentally friendly packaging and overall eco-value. We are The Cream Perfume Company and simply make better scents, naturally!"
I am really sold on the Solid French perfumes, made from 63% sweet almond oil, 17% beeswax and 20% perfume. The Scents are not overpowering, and stay on all day. The creative packaging "nuts" is also fun and practical. I can stash one of these wooden nuts in my purse and do have to worry about them spilling and breaking. They come in 10 wonderful scents, Apricot, Mango, Mimosa, Forest, Melon, Rose, Raspberry, Lavender, Vanilla, and Ylang Ylang. A detailed description of each fragrance can be found at Kapango.com's Fragrance Page.
I had the opportunity to receive three of these great perfumes in Apricot, Mango, and Mimosa. I enjoyed all three but I really loved the Mimosa, the combination of flowers, vanilla madagaskar, and musk gives it a really unique and wonderful scent.
I also received Coconut Vanille, Lavender and Rose Body Moisturizer. I was honestly not as fond of these lotions as I was with the perfumes, I really wanted to love them but the fragrance was too overpowering for my taste. The quality of lotion was great, it was thick and luscious and quickly absorbed into my skin without leaving behind a greasy feeling, but I couldn't get past the scent.
