Caring for Fragrance Jewelry
To keep your Lisa Hoffman fragrance jewelry beautiful, follow these general guidelines:
Remove jewelry before sleeping, showering, or swimming.
Store clean, dry jewelry in the bag provided to you.
It’s best not to expose your jewelry to extreme heat, humidity, or moisture.
Some precious stones are more porous than others, and soaking or submerging them in water should be avoided. The easiest way to keep your stones clean is to gently wipe them with a soft, damp cloth.
Gold can be kept gorgeous easily with a bath of warm (not hot) water and a few drops of mild dish soap. Simply remove the fragrance beads, place the jewelry in a bowl filled with the soapy water, and let sit for 20 minutes to clean pieces of the dirt and oils that may make your piece look lackluster.
If the 14K gold charm is attached to precious stone jewelry, hand wash the charm and do not submerge entire jewelry piece in water bath. Dry jewelry with a soft, dry cotton cloth and allow it to air dry completely before filing with fragrance beads and wearing again.
Brilliant and lustrous, sterling silver is prone to tarnish. Fortunately, caring for sterling silver is incredibly simple; and you can even avoid tarnish by wearing your jewelry more often!
To help prevent your sterling silver from tarnishing, you should avoid contact with products containing sulfur, such as wool and latex. The oils in your skin will also help clean and polish the sterling silver, so the more you wear your jewelry, the less you'll need to care for it.
If you notice your sterling has tarnished, don't worry: it can easily be polished off. We recommend using a special cloth made especially for sterling silver, as this precious metal is soft and scratches easily.
Sterling Silver with 14K Gold Plating
Similar to 14K gold, pieces made with sterling silver plated with 14K gold, or vermeil, should occasionally receive a warm bath with a few drops of mild dish soap, dried with a soft, dry cotton cloth, and then let to air dry before filling with fragrance beads and wearing. If the vermeil charm is attached to precious stone jewelry, hand wash the charm and do not submerge entire jewelry piece in water bath.
It is important to note that though these pieces contain sterling silver, you should not use a sterling silver cloth to polish them! Doing so will erode the gold plating—and you may end up with a piece of jewelry that looks more silver than gold.

Caring for Fragrance Beads
Our innovative fragrance bead technology delivers Lisa’s award-winning fragrances with a lasting consistency that can throw scent for up to a month. Fragrance beads diffuse fragrance the second you take them out of the bottle, so be sure to keep the lid tightly closed between uses.
As our eco-friendly fragrance beads are made with sustainable wood flour, water or other liquids may jeopardize their shape and scent. Avoid spraying beads, or submerging them in any liquid(s).
Replace beads every few weeks to a month for a stronger or lighter scent. Mix various scented beads within your charm to create your own custom scent, or stack bracelets to style a fragrance that’s uniquely yours.
Caring for Eau De Parfum
Most perfumes are made with alcohol (a preservative), giving them a longer shelf life than most cosmetics. As with any cosmetic, it’s best not to expose fragrance and perfumes to extreme heat, moisture, or direct sunlight. These elements are sure to fast-track the aging process. Lisa likes to keep her eau de parfums on a tray in her dressing room, away from the heat & humidity of her shower and direct sunlight from nearby windows.
Similar to wine, before your perfume even goes into the bottle it is aged, or macerated, in large batches. This process matures the fragrance until it reaches the scent complexity desired by the perfumer, and that it stays consistent from spray to spray.
On a smaller scale, once the perfume is bottled, it will continue to macerate—though in a much different way. So although it might smell a bit different over time, its essence will stay the same.
If you notice your perfume appears to be thicker than usual, it’s time to throw it away. Our recommendation for the lifespan of most perfume is two to three years.
