Hey folks, save up to 25% on our decants....

Did you know that you can save up to 25% on our decants if you're buying from the USA, or outside Canada? Our prices are listed in Canadian dollars, and due to recent currency re-valuations the $USD, for example, is now worth 25% more than our $CAD (approximately). For example:

CAD$4.00 decant price = USD$3.00 after conversion

“Nice scent. Nice smell. ”

Thank Goddess, it's Spring!

Flora and Zephyr, Jan Breughel the Elder and Peter Paul Rubens, 1617

Gwen: Guess who visited me today?

Kay:  I dunno. The Goddess of Spring?

Gwen: Hey! That was a lucky guess! 

Kay: Not really. You smell of violet, daffodil, iris and lilac. With a hint of …mimosa?

Also, you have some random leaves in your hair.

Cocoa Woods – Woody, powdery, interesting and different

 

I heard birds chirping outside our bedroom this morning as I woke up. It was really early, the sky just starting to lighten, but the sound made me jump out of bed in a VERY good mood, feeling happy and full of energy. Our birds are back, the pair that build their nest under the eaves every year. Spring is here again.

Winter Nights – woody and aromatic and warm

It’s not yet the Ides of March, more like the Ides of Winter. Baby, it’s cold outside. It’s too cold even to walk the dog!  Cabin fever takes on real meaning, and I seek out remedies to ease anxiety and soothe the senses. Books, music, cozy sweaters and throws, hot tea…and meditative scents.  This winter I’ve found the balm for my soul, an extraordinary scent experience aptly named Winter Nights.
