Just in time for Valentine’s Day is the recent launch of Charleston Girl Perfume. Charleston Girl eau de parfum is a sultry, enticing fragrance that opens with a burst of sparkling-fruity top-notes, weaves a delicate and sensuous floral middle and finishes with a soft, amber and sandalwood dry-down. While including ingredients native to Charleston, this luminous fragrance captures the spirit of a true southern belle. With its chic red & white packaging and beautiful scent, Charleston Girl is the perfect pick for her this Valentine’s Day.

Former journalist and Charleston native Kelly Gaskins always had aspirations to branch out and start her own business.  Gaskins played a major role in designing the fragrance. She teamed with perfume manufacturer Alpha Aromatics to make the vision of her scent a reality. “I wanted to create a scent that would appeal to the refined tastes of every Charleston girl and bring out the fun, fearless southern belle in every woman,” said Gaskins. “It was fascinating to learn that you can layer so many different scents to create a beautiful end result.” The young entrepreneur even designed the bottle packaging. The simple and elegant bottle design is inspired by the graceful and natural beauty that distinguishes Charleston girls. Adorning the neck of the bottle is a stylish red bow that serves as a subtle and sexy accessory. The moniker written in beautiful cursive on the bottle adds a touch of sophistication and charm.

The perfume is inspired by the unique and unforgettable southern women of Charleston. “If you ask anyone that visits our city about the women here, they will tell you that Charleston girls are naturally smart, sexy and sophisticated,” said Gaskins. “Charleston girls possess an elegance and charisma that never seems to age.  We exude a confidence and charisma that lights up any room.”
The 1.7oz bottle retails for $39.99 at and in select boutiques.
