The idea for Rio Ruby Red came about like many things over here at Broken Top, with the boss lady’s ‘I have an idea’ proclamation. It’s one of founder, Affton Coffelt’s favorite things to say, but as an employee, it prompts nervous laughter.
As she attended one of Broken Top’s many trade shows in Texas (just girl boss things), Affton noted her southern surroundings while dreaming up new scents On the last day of the trip, Affton treated herself to a much-needed mimosa brunch before heading back to reality. A grapefruit mimosa that is! She took in the local atmosphere and finally decompressed after a hectic week. She noticed the people around her and thought about their lives in Texas, full of sunny days, fruit groves, and delicious food and drink. Some things that she’s been desperately missing from her life in cold, wintery Bend.
