We are so pleased to introduce MCMC Fragrances.
These wonderful scents are created by Anne McClain, who grew up in Providence,
once upon a time worked with us at Simple Pleasures, and now lives in Brooklyn.
Since it's about to be Valentine's Day, Anne's Love story is on our mind . . .

"The first time I fell in love, it was all fireworks and sparks and a rush of crazy dancing.
The second time I fell in love, it was in a field by the ocean. My love is infinite.

Intense and spicy top notes of Japanese yuzu citrus, French sweet basil and Chinese

magnolia oil grow into the burning intensity of ancient templewood and gunpowder.

The scent lasts forever, just like true love."
