Woodland perfume

Woodland perfume sample set and larger bottles are coming to the Understory next week. On monday or tuesday of next week I will launch 3 new perfume blends to my shop. Owl, Bird, and Rabbit. If you love Bear or will love Owl.

Owl wears warmly on the skin with earthy patchouli, rosewood and immortelle as the base notes. Frankincense and violet leaf play in the middle. Evergreen slips in to recall the cool mornings as soft sandalwood and musk warm your heart. A brisk note of teakwood and vanilla briefly intervene at moments. A beautiful wearable earthy, musky blend. If you have always wanted to wear an earthy oil but never thought you could, this is the one for you.

Rabbit is one of my new favorites. It is reminiscent of a bunny scurrying through the snowy brush as the dawn breaks. Paws dusted with smoke, fragrant greenery mixed with warm Amber. Hints of vanilla sandalwood offset with patchouli honey and black rose become a resting spot for the hint of smoke.
Douglas fir and wild mint capture the snow and fragrant understory of the rabbit's lair.

Bird is grounded by exquisite Neroli and vetiver. Oakmoss continues to ground the blend as soft notes of peach and white musk play on your nostalgic senses. Black raspberry interlaced with vanilla cream comes in at the end with hints of vanilla and orchid. As the bird nibbles on berries, he is surrounded by leafy green trees. As the sun warms his feathers, he bursts into the sky for his next journey.

They will be available separately as samples, the larger 1/4 oz amber bottles, and as sample sets......

I'm so thrilled with this new series of blends. Thank you to all of you who have tried the oils and left the most awesome feedback. You guys rock!!
