BEHIND THE SCENTS:

2023 AUGUST FRAGRANCE OIL RELEASE

Behind every fragrance in this collection lies a wellspring of inspiration. From the mysterious beauty of sun-dappled forests to the warm decadence of gourmet confectionery delights, each scent carries a unique narrative, a tale revealed with every delightful note.

With this exploration of our latest fragrance oil collection, we invite you to get a glimpse into the concept and the “why” behind each new scent. Hear from our testers, get a vibe check, and snag some inspiration for fitting them into your own unique product line.

Join Cassi and Dana as they give their (almost) first impression on the seven new year-round fragrances.

Palo Santo and Sandalwood

Vibe check

Earthy, upscale, and harmonious

The concept

The perfect, upscale palo santo fragrance has proven to be…elusive. With dozens of versions tested and much discussion, we finally landed on something pretty special: a luxurious palo santo blend that captures the aroma of the raw, unburned wood. 

Our testers said…

“Gorgeous! Nice and earthy, the sandalwood notes complement the palo santo perfectly.”

Redwoods and Moss

Vibe check

Enchanting, primordial, and serene

The concept

We love a good woody, outdoorsy fragrance–and so do many of you! While we already have some great choices, like Dry Gin and Cypress and Cedarwood Blanc, we wanted to bring on a fragrance that emphasized notes of moss, embers, and earth as a compliment to cedarwood and pine. This combination results in an upscale scent that stands out in any collection.

Our testers said…

“Love! Nice woods, with a hint of sweetness. It’s distinct from our other woody scents.”

Note Profile

Sugar Pine and Patchouli

Vibe check

Comforting, grounding, and adventurous

The concept

Patchouli is a classic fragrance note, and a great way to add grounding earthiness to different scents. The marriage of pine and patchouli creates something beautifully outdoorsy and balanced. It’s tough to get the balance right with patchouli–it often either doesn’t come through enough, or it takes over. Sugar Pine and Patchouli is just right. 

Our testers said…

“This is it! Finally enough earthiness from the patchouli but not overwhelming. This is a winner.”

Note Profile

Midnight Blackberry

Vibe check

Mysterious, alluring, and elegant

The concept

The concept for what became Midnight Blackberry was originally intended as a berry bellini. You might pick up on the champagne note adding a subtle effervescence to the dark, juicy blackberry notes. 

Our testers said…

“Super strong! Love the berry notes. I’m getting sangria vibes and I’m into it.”
