We’re about to enter into a whole new season once again, and for us, this means the opportunity to get re-inspired, to re-ignite passions, and re-gain a sense of direction in the life we are constantly creating and cultivating for ourselves.
As a scent company, we believe that different aromas can bring out the various parts of ourselves ― our faith, joy, creativity.
Today we invite you scroll through and find your personal favorite scent from our original collection and discover a special message just for you in this moment.
We hope the small sentiment attached to your favorite scent will strike a chord with you, and inspire you to take pause, reflect on where you’ve been this year, and to look forward, with a little more clarity, and a lot more intention, towards a beautiful, colourful, and transformative fall.
Scent: Fir, Cedar, Pine, Eucalyptus, Orange, + Vanilla
Inspo: “I learned to find equal meaning in the repeated rituals of domestic life. Setting the table. Lighting the candles. Building the fire. Cooking. All those soufflés, all that crème caramel, all those daubes and albóndigas and gumbos. Clean sheets, stacks of clean towels, hurricane lamps for storms, enough water and food to see us through whatever geological event came our way. These fragments I have shored against my ruins, were the words that came to mind then. These fragments mattered to me. I believed in them.”― JOAN DIDION, THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING
Scent: Fir, cedar, + patchouli
Inspo: “Stop worrying about your identity and concern yourself with the people you care about, ideas that matter to you, beliefs you can stand by, tickets you can run on. Intelligent humans make those choices with their brain and hearts and they make them alone. The world does not deliver meaning to you. You have to make it meaningful...and decide what you want and need and must do. It’s a tough, unimaginably lonely and complicated way to be in the world. But that’s the deal: you have to live; you can’t live by slogans, dead ideas, clichés, or national flags. Finding an identity is easy. It’s the easy way out.”― ZADIE SMITH, ON BEAUTY
Scent: Rosemary + Peppermint
Inspo: “Every morning when I wake up, I experience an exquisite joy — the joy of being Salvador Dalí — and I ask myself in rapture: What wonderful things is this Salvador Dalí going to accomplish today?” — SALVADOR DALI
Scent: Lavender, Cedar, Bergamot, + Patchouli
Inspo: "I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.” ― HELENA BONHAM CARTER
Scent: Vetiver, sweet orange, + cinnamon
Inspo: “I believe that our planet is inhabited not only by animals and plants and bacteria and viruses, but also by ideas. Ideas are a disembodied, energetic life-form. They are completely separate from us, but capable of interacting with us—albeit strangely. Ideas have no material body, but they do have consciousness, and they most certainly have will. Ideas are driven by a single impulse: to be made manifest. And the only way an idea can be made manifest in our world is through collaboration with a human partner. It is only through a human’s efforts that an idea can be escorted out of the ether and into the realm of the actual.”― ELIZABETH GILBERT, BIG MAGIC: CREATIVE LIVING BEYOND FEAR
Scent: Fir, balsam, + clove
Inspo: “I'll never know, and neither will you, of the life you don't choose. We'll only know that whatever that sister life was, it was important and beautiful and not ours. It was the ghost ship that didn't carry us. There's nothing to do but salute it from the shore.”― CHERYL STRAYED, TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS: ADVICE ON LOVE AND LIFE FROM DEAR SUGAR
