“YOU CAN'T USE UP CREATIVITY. THE MORE YOU USE, THE MORE YOU HAVE.” ― MAYA ANGELOU
Greetings! I'm glad you came by to visit. My name is Vanessa aka Frankinscience™ and V. W. RUSTIQUE DESIGN is my company born from a need to create and express myself in many ways through my God given talents. I have always loved fragrance and recognized its benefits from my youth. I especially love creating an ambiance of luxury using fragrance, whether basking in a long, fragrant bath or a brisk wake me up shower or falling asleep to the smell of lavender on my linen. To me, fragrance is magical! It's comforting and soothes away the blues. Plainly, it makes you feel good. I'd like to share my love affair of fragrance with you.
Twelve years ago, I got injured on my job and left the workforce. While in recovery I made a much needed plan to get back to work, so I created a career for myself in small business that I have a passion for and ability to do well. It took some time and hard work for me to get here, but the journey was well worth it. Building my company has fulfilled a dream come true.
Placing my focus on foods, herbs and spices, earth elements and the truly unexpected, I use these ingredients to enhance the nature of basic skin-loving oils and butters resulting in the luxurious skin care product I've been gifted to create for your total body. I believe my soaps to be the best quality for your daily regimen. They are rustic, uniquely packaged and 100% handcrafted. Fragranced or unscented, Gorda™ Artisan Soaps are a perfect addition to your bath, bedroom, kitchen and interior design. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Gorda is derived from the Spanish word for "fat" or "well-fed."
