1. How did you come up with the name Rojo Luxuries?
This brand is the very essence of me, so I incorporated my name. Ro from the first two letters of my first name Rori and Jo from the first two letters of my last name Johnson.
2. What can you tell us about the mastermind behind this luxury beauty care body line?
I’m a young business entrepreneur. I’ve taken my inspiration and strength from the great people around me. I’ve been experimenting and creating fragrances since I was 15 years old and have held on tight to my dream. I’ve remained true to myself and that’s what I’m most proud of. During college my primary focus was cosmetic chemistry and product development. I’m also a trained and licensed para-medical aesthetician. Upon completion of college, I obtained the coveted position of Beauty Consultant for Bath and Body Works; where I worked for 2 ½ years.
3. What encouraged you to get into the business of beauty care?
For as far back as I can remember I’ve always loved to blend. I think my interest started back in high school. I enjoyed Chemistry class. My friend, Renee and I were always mixing up something new….something we weren’t supposed to be doing. I guess it finally caught up with me one day in Biology lab, while doing an experiment and my uniform caught fire. One of my very first important concoctions was a watermelon astringent, a combination of watermelon and alcohol. My theory then, was that alcohol would kill acne causing bacteria, while the watermelon would hydrate the skin and prevent peeling. There is no greater feeling than following your dreams and doing something that you really love.
4. What beauty care regimen would you recommend the most to your clients?
Each client is unique and has very specific needs. I will elaborate more on this sometime in the future when our skin and spa line arrives. For right now…..journey into the enticing world of scent with Rojo Luxuries.
5. What are the different products your line offers?
Our line currently consists of luxury mists and luxury lotions. Our lotions contain sunflower oil which is rich in vitamin E which helps to moisturize and regenerate skin. Our mists are alcohol based, which helps to disperse fragrance evenly on skin and makes fragrance last longer. Indulge yourself in all five fragrances. Creamy Berry, Love Plum, Pineapple Passion, Vanilla Bliss and Pink Kiss.
6. Would you say that your line carries scents for every occasion and what would you recommend for a day scent versus a night scent?
While I create from my inspiration, my experiences and my thoughts, I try to incorporate familiar scents with the usual and exotic scents. There are no boundaries…..no limits….no rules. Each fragrance is as unique as each woman. In the moment, wear whatever speaks to you.
7. Who would you say is your target market?
Rojo Luxuries is a luxury lifestyle brand. I have created a brand concept for women…all women. It’s important for every woman to own an exquisite fragrance. Wearing a beautiful fragrance is in style at every age.
8. How would you describe the typical Rojo Luxuries’ woman?
The modern woman…powerful and erotic.
9. What would you say you are offering your clients that other lines are not?
My fragrances are hand blended in small batches to ensure quality. I also do custom and personalized blends for every occasion. Make the milestones in your life super special with Rojo Luxuries.
10. Will you be expanding the products available in your line and if so what would that include?
We definitely plan to expand our product line. I’m constantly creating new fragrances. The next product to be introduced to our line will be shower gels, with an anticipated launch in mid to late 2012. This is only the beginning. Look out for us. Rojo Luxuries….the rising!
