RAINWATER ROSE - Natural Botanical Eau de Toilette | Fresh Blooming Roses hand gathered at the Ocean
Fresh Blooming Roses | A soliflore Eau de Toilette
BATCH #5 | 2019 | SEASONAL LIMITED BATCHES
Delicate on the petals balance the softly landing raindrops. The early summer breeze carries the ocean on its fingertips, salting the heady rose scented air. My eyes can't see the farthest roses; they fill the landscape as far as I can see until the green becomes the sea and the sea becomes the sky. The straw of my mother's hat peeks through the thorny bushes, as we collect flower after flower.
Style: Floral, Soliflore
The Personal, The Process, The Gathered
We pull just the petals, letting the center of the flower continue to feed the bees and become big red hips. Sand trickles into the sides of my sandals, and I cast a smile across the way to my mom, as her eyes sparkle with the unending love of our rose gathering ritual. I tuck a small pink shell into my pocket and continue to fill my canvas bag with perfect roses. The rain settles into my hair and softens my cheeks. The wet harvest fills a jar to become tincture. The rest wait patiently to be laid to dry. The ride home is intoxicating.
This Rose soliflore is a blend of the finest Rose Ottos and Rose absolutes from around the world, held in my artisan tinctured wild rose petals kissed by rainwater. There is a soft earthy accord to anchor and lift the roses for a little longer. This is a must-have for Rose perfume collectors and Rose obsessed gardeners. It showcases the fragrance of real roses with delicate glory.
This is an Eau de Toilette - which means the aromatics are a lesser strength than that of a perfume. It is ideal for summer misting - a bouquet of upliftment for any moment. It is NOT a face mist - please see my Roses and Aloe face tonic for that purpose.

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.
