OUR NAMES OF BEAUTY COLLECTION

A TALE OF BEAUTY

WITHIN YOUR STORY


Our Names of Beauty Collection is inspired by the complex dynamics of inner beauty, or inner power — spoken through fragrance.

In perfumery there is a tradition of naming perfumes after aspects of inner beauty such as “Joy”, “Love”, and “Radiance”.  The idea of creating fragrances to include a greater range of these qualities was intriguing.  Could perfume be coaxed into a stronger smell or feeling of the inspiration itself?  The thought of layering inner beauty with outer beauty, fragrance upon fragrance, became an irresistible path that led us further on.

It would be a challenge, so we spent a lot of time on the story board or briefs, mapped out their release on an evolutionary time line into the future, and moved forward.

It’s been quite a journey.  What we found is crafted into our perfume; each one conceived as a fragrant mirror reflecting how beautiful you really are.

REVERIE

dream catcher

~
Bergamot, Neroli, White Fir, Rhododendron leaf, Orange Blossom, Zdravets, Cypress, Oakmoss, Ambergris

REVERIE opens to the first notes of the earliest spring days, of fresh wet leaves holding tight buds of faint floral sweetness, calling you to a world apart.  Standing at your garden gate, the air hints at warmer days, and the mountains wait beyond.  Evergreens and rhododendrons beckon you to freedom. You find yourself beneath a canopy of trees, resting on new leafings, emerging from the mossy, carpeted, forest floor. There, in intimate repose you discover a verdant and musky retreat that welcomes your deeply rooted dreams to come out and play.

~

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love.  It will not lead you astray.”

DAUNTLESS

fear no fear

~
Bitter Orange, Geranium, Spiced Ylang & Rose, Resins, Conifers

DAUNTLESS is a dichotomy of soothing sweetness and rousing robustness. Like a steed out of the gates, it opens on the body with an engaging, focusing lift of bitter orange and geranium. The floral heart of DAUNTLESS, with ylang-ylang and rose, is wreathed in warming spice.  As the perfume advances deep into the visceral base notes, a moving fire of sweet, oriental resins, conifer heart-woods, and musk carries you through your most challenging days or your fiercest nights with a dynamic, undaunted, vintage beauty.~

 APIARIST

bee kind

~
Peach, Vanillin, Bois de Rose, Incense Woods, Agarwoods, Vanilla, Beeswax, Ambergris

APIARIST is generous from top to bottom. From the moment the fragrance greets you, it lavishes you with creamy, sweet, yet unbeguiling vanilla, glazed with a gentle touch of peach. Once beyond first infatuation, honeyed notes of deeper vanilla spread like drizzled love, intimately exuding a cocoon of deeply satisfying, sustaining, hearth-fire and fruity agarwoods, warm incense woods, and golden ambergris that surrounds you with a feeling of contented bliss.

 OCCASION

Fall, Winter, Evenings, and when the ENERGY and ECHO would help yourself or others. 

GENDER
APIARIST leans traditionally feminine but we think it is gender neutral due to its feminine and masculine aspects.  The creamy sweetness associates with soft gentleness, classically feminine, yet the warm, woody, hearth-fire notes give a firm, solid feel that would be unusual and beautiful on a man.

APIARIST was inspired by the Inner Beauty of Benevolence, which has no gender.  Wear what you love and what serves you.
