DIRT WORSHIP | natural botanical perfume | nature is my church
| NATURE IS MY CHURCH |
Spring Collection Microbatch. Only 150 mls created.
Hands dig deep into the newly thawed soil. Threads of old roots tangle in your fingers, revealing intricate communication lines and the smell of cool and ready dirt. Fluctuating air incites goosebumps. The garden is being planted. Offerings are being laid to the rich compost. The trees watch over you as their fallen branches fruit bodies of miracle fungi. The cycles of life are palpable.
Sweet resins glow like incense along the furrows of bark. Birds rummage through the dried leaves for the last remaining crab-apple seeds and unsuspecting earthworms. Winter finally lets go, releasing the scent of holy ground.
All spring collection bottles except the leaf flacon arrive fitted with a travel cap and include an optional atomizer.
------------- The Personal, the Process, The Gathered
There's nothing new about Earth/Nature based spirituality. Listening to the ways of the land, the instincts of fauna, the rhythms of flora, and respecting the soil given to us by millions of years of decay and transformation is a human lineage to be honored.
In DIRT WORSHIP I take the smells of fresh spring soil and give to it oblations of sacred roots, incense, dried leaves, small berries, and healing elixirs. Dirty with a side of sweet resins, tree bark, cool rain, and wilted flowers.
Try before you buy, it's not for everyone.
100% Natural Botanical Artisanal Fragrance by GATHER perfume
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.
