As some of you may already know and the rest of you are fixing to discover is my love of fragrances and perfumes. I just love them and I guess you could call me a collector of fragrances! I love to have a large selection of scents to choose from on a daily basis because with only one fragrance it gets kinda boring right? Well as you probably do not know I come from a very small rural town in North West Arkansas so I pretty much grew up in the country and been around horses all my life and I have a deep love for them and now that we have a home in the country with plenty of land we are currently working on the land to get it ready for a couple of horses of our own so naturally when I was given the opportunity to review the Nuzzle fragrance I was so excited and couldn’t wait to share it with all of you!
About Nuzzle (taken from website):
Here is our story
We were all sitting around talking about the one thing we all loved the most-Horses! When Patrick mentioned he wanted to launch a fragrance especially designed for the equine enthusiast, we loved it. There are fragrances for everyone else. Rappers,movie stars etc. Isn't it about time horse riders have their own fragrance, designed just for them?
We knew it was not going to be easy. Equestrians are strong, dedicated, passionate about what they do, and are very particular.
We like to think of ourselves as an elite group.
We went to work, and finally after many long days and sleepless nights, it is with great pride and joy we give you Nuzzle™.

Leslie Molinari, VP Sales and Marketing.
Horses have been her passion for almost 40 years. Her father introduced her to horses, and she will forever be grateful to him. Her experience has taken her from the show ring to the winner's circle of Thoroughbred Racing where she was the leading female trainer at many eastern racetracks. In the early 90's she decided to trade horses for horse power and went to work for BMW. Although she was top 25 in sales in the US, each of the 5 years she was employed; her heart was with the horses. So, in 1998 she fulfilled her dream of owning her own show barn. After 7 successful years, she sold the farm and bought a smaller property where she lives with her patient husband Sean and "chidren", which are 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 4 cats. She continues to ride and enjoys competing.

Sean is very instrumental in making sure the inventory of Nuzzle products is up to date and orders are shipped in a timely fashion.Sean loves travelling and will tell you everything you need to know about Nuzzle when you meet him at a Horse Expo across the nation.

I was sent Nuzzle 1.7 oz. bottle Eau de Parfum and a tube of the Nuzzle™ Lip Moisturizer to review and I must say they arrived very quickly and was very well packaged so they were not damaged in any way during shipping (very important to me). I can honestly say that after reading the description of the fragrance I just could not wait to get it open and give the fragrance a try.
I immediately had to try on the fragrance and I have to tell you this is one of the best fragrances I have ever had the pleasure of trying. The fragrance itself is such a light and refreshing fragrance that really reminds me of the open country air in spring time. The design of the bottle itself is simple yet elegant and comes with a very cute horseshoe charm that can be put on a chain of your choice to make a lovely little charm necklace or bracelet. I decided to use mine as a necklace and I’ve worn it quite often, it’s one of my go to necklaces for my everyday wear.
Not only do I wear the cute little charm often, I’ve found that I choose the Nuzzle fragrance over the other fragrances I have on my bathroom counter for my everyday wear, it’s so causal that it fit’s in on just about every occasion and everyone seems to love it! Usually I get board of the same fragrance day after day but with Nuzzle it’s hard to get board because it just smells so wonderful and it’s fragrance notes blend so well that it seems like it’s a new fragrance every time I spray it. I love the fact that I only have to spray once and the fragrance last all day vs. other fragrances that have to be reapplied during the day. I’ve gotten so many compliments on this fragrance since I started wearing it.
I was also sent the Nuzzle™ Lip Moisturizer to review and I’m also in love with this lip gloss it’s perfect for everyday wear and really adds a nice finishing touch to my everyday “natural” look and feels so luscious on my lips. I keep this lip moisturizer in my purse at all times and I wear it quite often. I just love the soft pink shimmer this lip gloss gives to my lips to really complete my look.
I love the Nuzzle fragrance and lip moisturizer I was sent to review and I can tell you one thing I will be purchasing more once I run out of the items I was sent. Also I’ve noticed that Nuzzle offers men’s fragrances and I can’t wait to get my hubby the Wrangler cologne to try out. The one thing that I have to comment about this company besides the fact that their fragrance smells wonderful is that each purchase you make helps save the abused and neglected horses.
If you are looking for a fragrance to get in touch with your inner cowgirl, I totally suggest picking up a bottle of Nuzzle and helping save the horses!
