Morning perfumery, mixing up a blend for a client. Creating custom perfumes is one of my greatest passions in this line of work… Blending is truly an aromatic art, and I believe every perfume should be as unique as the person that it adorns. Processed through an entirely different area of the brain than the rest of our senses, smell has a particular association with our memories – thus giving scents the rare ability to transform us through time & space. I love witnessing reactions to different aromatic materials, and watching olfactory preferences evolve as we grow + change into slightly different versions of ourselves. Thus, the last drops in old vials of perfume can serve as a scented reminder of who and where we were in life when we wore it every day.
If you’re on O’ahu and would like a custom blend, please get in touch for a private in-person perfumery session… Otherwise order here by choosing from any of 30 different essential oils, and I will send a vial encapsulating your one-of-a-kind perfume through the mail!
// EVERGREEN DEN //
I recently found myself unexpectedly enraptured by a true Evergreen Den of Hawaii. While camping on the mountainside of Haleakala, Maui’s extinct volcano, we found ourselves immersed in a lush forest of cedar woods, pines & eucalyptus trees ~ the very botanicals of which this elixir is created. The tucked-away den exuded my favorite aromatic aspects of this blend: resinous wood & fresh camphor, cool mountain air & morning dew. While Evergreen Den often leaves me with Northeast & Northwest nostalgia, it was lovely to find such scents hidden away on a Hawaiian island.
All Over Oil is a super versatile hair + body oil, available in 5 blends each featuring a unique essential oil of Hawaii. Available for $12 / $20.
|| BLUE MOON BALM ||
A pain-relieving rub for your monthly moon ~ simply massage onto abdomen & low back to relieve cramping. All the herbs in this formula are warming in nature, move the blood to keep things flowing, calm the spirit & alleviate pain: by applying in circular motions, you can actually feel heat being generated on your skin. The center of the balm features a ‘blue moon’ of soothing blue chamomile essential oil. In addition to working womanly wonders, this salve can also alleviate general muscle cramps & pains. Available in a 1 oz tin for $14.
