The history of patchouli dates back to ancient times. It is mentioned in ancient Chinese and Indian texts as a medicinal herb, and was used to treat a variety of ailments, including skin irritations, infections, and anxiety. Patchouli was also used as a natural insect repellent, and was believed to have spiritual and aphrodisiac properties.
A Girl's Gotta Spa! roll on perfumes have become increasingly popular since we expanded our bath and body line two years ago to include them.
Our latest fragrance, Known, is coming at a time when things really feel mostly... unknown.
We began crowdsourcing last Fall to find out which scents people were loving lately, and rose overwhelmingly topped the list.
If you're a customer of our lovely products, you know we usually like to keep the citrus tie-in throughout each product. However, as with our Synergy Himalayan Salt Scrub, we decided to forgo that with this perfume.

Naming the Perfume
It's always fun to explain to you my stream of thought when naming A Girl's Gotta Spa! products. This one stumped me for a while, though!
Second, I like to choose names that inspire, encourage and uplift. So as you may have guessed, the names don't typically describe the notes in the scent.
It took me about 2 months to finally land on Known.
What Does Known Mean?
Since our launch point is a rose fragrance, I thought about all aspects of this flower. I finally asked myself - what does a rose represent to most people?
What does it mean to be loved? To me, it means to care for someone so deeply and unconditionally, irregardless of their flaws.
To Be Loved is to be Known
Here's the thing - to be loved doesn't always have to mean someone loving you. It can absolutely also include YOU loving YOU. It's a self-love party up in here!
I hope you will love Known as much as I do. Find it on our webstore: Known Rollerball Perfume
