Happy Winter Solstice & Merry Christmas 2020!
Wishing you all the most wonderful, cheerful, cozy and joyous holiday season!
And all the very best for the upcoming New Year 2021 - may it be a year of health, abundance and peace from within and without. May you always feel loved and always find the time to stop and smell the roses!
I sure am excited about the upcoming year, as it will celebrate 20 years of my perfumery career. Stay tuned for some very special releases, and fragrant events and sniffing parties conducted online with fragrance lovers, students and incense devotees.
I know this year's festivities are not the way we'd like them to be, and it's hard to keep traditions alive. Those who can't physically spend the coldest days of the year with family and loved ones are having the hardest time. Remember to still make this time special in whatever way you can - lighting a candle, burning incense, take a nice long relaxing bath with that oil or bubble bath that you always keep for a special time that never comes, meditation, prayer and writing in your journal to set intent and goals for the coming year. I find that writing Christmas cards to all the people I miss helped me feel so much better, especially knowing that they will be so happy and surprised to find this in the mail, instead of just bills and flyers.
Check out my SmellyBlog recipe index for more concoctions and recipes to make the festivities special this year.
Bois d'Hiver & Fête d'Hiver
Our duo of masculine and feminine winter perfumes that are festive and original. Made of natural ingredients only, as are all of our offerings - they provide a delightful and subtle alternative to the clichés of the season, while being undoubtfuly wintery. This was achieved by using luxurious frankincense, myrrh, rose and a proprietary vegan amber in both.
Bois brings together the scents of deep forest and Christmas trees, with fir, juniper and cedar, subtle of doze spices, and hint of cheerful orange blossom. Fête is more floral with added gardenia accord and slightly different array of spices for warmth and powdered-snow softness.
