BASIL 

{ the wealth of a summer garden } 

Is there a bounty like the bounty of summer basil? The timeless moments of too much -- what do I do? I shall make pesto. I shall hang bundles to dry for winter sauce. I shall layer my garden tomatoes, warm from the sun, with full green leaves of basil and a pinch of salt, and eat them until I am full. I will make vinegar, soak it in olive oil, and perhaps give some away. 

The euphoria of real basil, finally captured in a perfume.

Fresh, leafy, layered. The height of the summer garden overflowing with basil and bumper crops. The lettuce tries to bolt. The tomatoes drip their semi sweet juices.

There’s no satisfaction like our hands in the dirt, growing. Sticky from picking, savoring the riches of the earth. Creativity is challenged by too many vegetables and the fleeting
season of overflow.

There is a wealth that is cultivated in the garden.


"My vegetable love should grow

Vaster than the empires, and more slow." 

--Andrew Marvell

A NOTE FROM THE PERFUMER

** Due to the fact that I - Gather perfume - use exclusively 100% natural materials, batch variance is to be expected. This is the same in any luxury, handcrafted art medium ( such as dance and opera) and agriculturally dependent arts such as viticulture, honey, or microbrewery. Gather perfumes are often limited editions for this reason, as well as the fact that some materials can only be obtained for small windows of time or no longer available at all. If you prefer uniformity in your fragrances, you may want to consider a more commercially available or mixed media brand. 

With Love,
Ananda

Summer Herb Garden

The more I wear this perfume, the more I fall in love with it! It smells like a summer garden and the sunlight in the air. Once I run out of the 5 ml bottle, I will get a full size, it's my absolute favorite!

Fresh & Inviting

This perfume! WOW! When I first smelt this perfume, immediately I was in love. It is fresh, inviting and comforting. It is dreamy and peaceful. I love how unique it is as well, when do you smell basil perfume? Natural bliss.

Summer garden in a bottle

This one is a scent for the carefree days of summer. You are laying in a hammock, it is a well deserved rest after tending your herb garden, where basil is the star of the show. You peeling back an orange, the rind scents the air and your hands. The scent of the orange, the herbs, the musk of the earth and the crispness of air surround you. You may not have an herb garden or a hammock (I miss those things) but if you want to smell this feeling this is the fragrance for you. It will keep summer w/ you all year long.
