Spring 2015

I know I am a bit late in posting this, but at least it'll be here for future reference ;)

Moth: Iridescent wings flutter and flit through the forest night, leaving trails of sparkling pixie dust floating in the air. A veil of sheer freesia and honeysuckle, lily of the valley, dew-laden mint, tree trunks, pine needles, and the forest floor below.

Butterfly: Colorful and bright, like a flower in flight. Ripe Apricots, Nectar, Mimosa blooms, Black Currants, Oranges, Melons, and a hint of fresh Mint.

Chirp: The first robins of Spring are always a welcome sight. A chipper blend of oriental vanilla, feminine musk, osmanthus, peaches, and violets, with hints of grapefruit and a very smooth oud accord.

Sprout: A fragrance for Spring, of new growth pushing through the remnants of last year. Wood violets, dewfruit, fresh earth, green leaves, lichen and moss, and delicate alyssum.

Spring Cleaning: Opening the windows on the first warm-enough day after a long winter is such an amazing thing to do. Out with the old, and in with the new! Clean laundry, spring flowers, redwoods, black pepper, patchouli, ylang, lindenblossom, and tart green pineapple.

Highland Crest: The clean scent of an Ocean breeze caught atop the seaside cliffs, the waves crashing against the rocks below, air ripe with Plumeria blossoms, Heather, and your well-worn Suede jacket to cut the chill. Leather/Ocean/Unisex

Rose Lemonade: Another classic OHWTO smell returns to welcome Spring this year! Yep, 100% inspired by the Fentiman's beverage of the same name, this fragrance is fizzy and floral and lemony with a slight undertone of gingery warmth. Try it with gin- the soda, not the perfume ;) Fresh-squeezed Lemons, Sugar, Rose petals, Geraniums, fizzing Soda water, Grapefruit, and a light touch of Amber and Ginger.

Maura Mae: A classic returns! Slightly reformulated, but still lovely as ever. With her curls of copper, her twinkling eyes, her sweet smile- this is what they mean when they refer to "The luck of the Irish". A sweet and fruity scent, Maura Mae is strongly apricot, with supporting notes of green clover, tea, cut grass, a sprinkling of field flowers- lily of the valley, violet, lavender, as well as a dash of berries, vanilla bean, and the faintest, tiniest, entirely lady-like nip of whiskey.

Silk Road: A heady floral-tea fragrance, heavy on the "green". Green Tea with tart Rosehips, Jasmine blossoms, and Silk, along with hints of Cucumber, Chamomile, and Kiwi.

Lucky: Crisp, juicy red apples, tart granny smiths, and rolling, endless green hills perfumed by nature awakening from her winter slumber. Spring is in the air!

Paradox: A curiously impossible blend of violets, coconut, and more, this intriguing scent will keep you sniffing your wrists for hours. It's food-y, but yet, it's flowery, but it's not, but it is. Or is it? Violets, Coconut, Coconut Milk, Madagascar Vanilla, Labdanum, Sandalwood, and gentle touches of Lavender, Valerian root, and White musk.

Blackberry Buckle: Unf. Fans of my "The Cake is a Lie" fragrance, prepare to have your worlds rocked. Blackberry preserves and fresh-picked Blackberries, Lemon zest, and Buttery crumbly Cake filling with a Spiced crumb topping.
