what leaves do on their way down interests me they're falling no parachute no cushion no acrobatics just free falling like it's no big deal just something they do once a year like closing the windows before the first frost and even though that leaf has never fallen before it seems to remember the floating pattern of it's oaken predecessor and somehow mimics the amber armed softness and ember colored edges with little effort.
Miraculously it lands injury free. Welcomed by a spun net of jungled earth and mushrooms not yet bloomed. -- -- (falling. ananda wilson. 9.29.22)

We've returned to the immersive experience of camping as of late. Sweater Stories and Waxed Leaves are both olfactory compositions that are informed by these sensorial, site specific experiences. New England autumns are so special, it's hard to capture its whole energy but small attempts through olfactory art seem a worthy effort.
As Falling becomes an archived perfume, I welcome Sweater Stories it its stead, at least for now. Waxed Leaves makes a beautiful base layer for Sweater Stories.
You can take a peek into a couple of our camp experiences here and here.
Waxed Leaves is a resonant balm that works as a delicious skin scent on its own, but also welcomes layering as its waxy nature and base note materials provide excellent fixative properties.
100% Natural Perfume by Gather. Waxed Leaves is not vegan.
