    I ordered samples of Lace, Kismet, and Tobacco Rose. Of those three, I liked Tobacco Rose the best. It is a very unique fragrance and lasts all day on my skin. Lace and Kismet were not my favorite, but two of my friends who tried them absolutely adored them. I think it is just a matter of personal preference. The seller also included several sample sizes to try and I loved them all. The sample of Filoli Rose was divine! I am very pleased with my purchase. This seller is great!

Define yourself naturally by wearing a unique and beautiful fragrance by A WING & A PRAYER PERFUMES!

Founded in 2008, A Wing & A Prayer Perfumes is a perfume company that is run by Jane Cate and her daughter, Sarah. Using natural ingredients, we believe that the olfactory sense invokes memories faster than hearing, seeing, or tasting. A fragrance can take you back to a first love or a happy time in your life. Creating memories is just one of the reasons we began to create perfumes.

A Wing & A Prayer Perfumes have received numerous awards for their beautiful and unique fragrances, including the CalfleureBon award for Raising Star 2011, two Silver Awards for LACE and La Isla Del Sol Perfumes in 2013 at Taste TV International Fragrance Competition held in San Francisco, California. Recently AWAAPPerfumes received the Gold Award for SUMMER AFTERNOON Perfume for the 2015 Summer Challenge and the 2015 Silver Award for Best Packaging at the San Francisco Fragrance Salon

Wearing a special fragrance is an expression of who you are, so express yourself naturally by wearing one of our beautiful perfumes and become fragrantly unforgettable! We know that you will enjoy wearing our perfumes as much as we enjoyed creating them for you!

Vanilla or cinnamon can take me back to a cold New York winter’s day in New York and to the aroma of my mother’s home made chocolate chip cookies. The essence of certain spices take me back to a wonderful summer and a first romance.

As an educator and researcher, I learned that the olfactory sense invokes memories faster than hearing, seeing or tasting! A fragrance can take you back to a first love or a happy time in your life. Creating memories is just one of the reasons I began to create perfumes.

The name “A Wing & A Prayer” comes from my childhood. Whenever we saw a shooting star in the evening sky, my father would to say, “Make a wish on a wing and a prayer.”

I introduce to you A Wing & A Prayer Perfumes, which offer custom fragrances blended with pure natural ingredients. These perfumes can be worn alone or enjoy combining to create your own unique fragrance. I hope you enjoy wearing my fragrances as much as I did creating them and that they invoke happy memories or help to make new ones!
