coconut, pink peppercorn, orange blossom, coal and clove
Ancient volcanic sands extend right to the edge of sweet tropic foliage in this scent, reminding us of the lush cycle of life, death, and renewal. Return to the island.
suede, saffron flower, labdanum, pot leaf, tonka, raspberry and patchouli
The scent is akin to “enjoying a joint at a rousing rodeo.” This tumbleweed of a scent is a dusty accumulation of suede and saffron, with puffs of pot and patchouli floating through. It has some dust, it’s dry-earthy, it’s grounded. It’s a warm, well-worn saddle of a scent.
black currant, peach blossom, jasmine rice, cardamom and white cedar
In the French language, LES is the plural article used for both masculine and feminine nouns. It is also the acronym for one of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods—picking up on notes of rice powder, peach blossom, cardamom, cedar and Asian pear, to name just a few of its many notes. All in all, this scent is an unexpected, non-binary, cross-cultural, olfactive exploration—embracing the eclecticism that is the Lower East Side.
rose, tuberose, oakmoss and smoke
Inspired by the floral photographs of Gregory Crewdson, Cinderose exposes the sinister side of the familiar. Notes of rose, orange blossom, and jasmine are mixed with smoke, cedar, and birch tar to create a scent both beautiful and troubling.
sandalwood, clay, clove flower, oud and ylang-ylang
This incredibly well balanced sandalwood scent takes its cues from colonial missions; exotic florals mixed with frankincense undertones result in a holy and exotic experience.
tomato, petitgrain, white tea and honeysuckle
Citrus groves and tomato gardens give vibrance to this scent of flora still clinging to the vine. Dominant notes of orange tree bark, tomato juice are rounded by drops of honeysuckle nectar.
frankincense, saffron, redwood, poppy and pomelo
Redheads are rare and fervent, much like the ingredients in this namesake candle. Grounded in redwood cedar, notes such as frankincense, amber, and cashmeran add a regality. Vetitver and ginger add spice, while saffron and poppy add an exoticism.
cannabis, suede, white musk, tulip and amber
Green, bright, and a wisp of delicate floral. As the cannabis flowers and brushed suede warm up, the amber accord grounds this dank and intoxicating scent. A perennial favorite.
resin, hinoki, cardamom, jasmine, moss and guiac
A resinous aroma of smoking Japanese cypress and jasmine petals. Warm and meditative with an element of earthy spice notes and quiet, fresh moss. Studies note that hinoki's vibrant timber can induce physiological relaxation. An absolute cold-weather necessity to warm and invigorate the nasal senses.
