For the Forest Dwellers

MIDWOOD MUSK // An aromatic adornment for forest dwellers and mountain folk; a solid scent for those who prefer to smell like the trees above all else. Four of my favorite botanicals dance together in this lovely perfume, which includes the ever-precious essences of Hawaiian grown & distilled Vetiver & Sandalwood essential oils. $18 at >indigoelixirs.com



MORNING PERFUMERY

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!

Late Night Perfuming….

Tonight’s #latenightalchemy = custom perfuming. One of my favorite aspects of this work is being able to make one-of-a-kind aromatic creations, particularly for clients who request a blend that I would’ve never imagined putting together. The possibilities are endless, and always enchanting.
