'In the Meadow' Botanical Perfume
INSPIRATION: Summer hay fields / dry earth & grass being warmed by the sun / walking along country roads at sunset / lavender fields in Provence / late summer storms / tumbling ruins.
Dirt is crunching under foot as you walk along bush tracks beside hay fields in the height of summer, whilst the warmth of the sun releases the dry scent of grass and sweet resinous plants. Brushing passed lavender bushes overgrown in forgotten farmhouse gardens and goldfields ruins with storm clouds brewing overhead, linking the past to the present.
Top note: Australian tangerine, summer herbs
Heart note: lavender absolute, hay
Base note: dry woods, sweet resin
10ml roller of botanical perfume: apply to pulse points and the back of your neck for a natural plant based scent.
