How

when the clock escapes
do we catch butterfly moments
in our memories
as they slip and slide
through our clenching hours

how
when sun sets 
and stars appear
do we keep the knowing
of morning's light?
Tight rope of time,
can we reconcile? 

how can warm air
disappear 
inside of a breath
of relief
forgotten goosebumps
sweaters traded
for skinned knees 
at the altar of wild berries
feral perfume
peaks of pleasure

in that I lost me
and arrived whole

This perfume is a love poem to the peak blooming season, the warm summer days kissed by floral breezes, the sensual frenzy of harvesting, the ecstatic work of rhythmic foraging. Momentary storms pass through to quench the land, giving way to sky colors and rainbows. Sunshowers and fluctuating temperatures imprint moments on our skin. Roses being a talisman of my family as well as healing aromatic herbalism in general, this perfume is quite possibly a selfish indulgence. 

Utilizing a hard to find Tunisian Neroli (orange blossom) blossom absolute (costing $200++ for 1/2 oz) and myriad roses, there are deep floral layers within the flourishing bouquet; notes of tea, humidity, citrus zest, refined greenery, and hints of naturally occurring spice from within the flowers. A delicate inference of strawberry whispers like nearby wild bramble berries that share the lineage of the rose family and her sweet / thorny ways.

Roses of Memory

I am wearing Rose collector again today and I felt the need to add to my previous review. I am passionate about perfume, and I am a perfume collector. That being said I have to say Rose Collector is probably most unique take on rose I have ever smelled and that is saying something because I have many rose fragrances in my collection. And as I am wearing this perfume for the second time, I have the picture in my mind of a long-lost love story. This perfume smells like rose petals lovingly kept in an old, very valuable leather-bound book. The owner of the book lives in a cabin deep in the woods and the book is kept on a finely carved bookshelf made of oak. Opening the book reveals the memory of the scent of that long ago day spent w/ that loved one walking around the countryside.
The smell of newly bailed hay, the woods, the earth and the wild roses. They collected some of the roses and pressed them in a book to remember that wonderful and beautiful day. Roses of love, roses of memory.

Jammy woody and herbal rose

I just received my bottle of The Rose Collector today and it is a stunning unisex rose fragrance. My husband will adore this and probably share this bottle w/ me. I can't wait until he comes home from work to smell this. He is a lover of roses as am I and this is a rose a man or a woman can wear. The Rose Collector opens w/ a strong herbal hay accord and as that fades a bit (never leaving) the jammy roses start to bloom; it becomes more opulent. Rich and sweet like a rose wine. Woody and crisp juniper comes through w/ an almost medicinal feel. There is a brightness to this fragrance but a deepness as well. A honeyed earth tone that mingles w/ the sweet jammy roses to create something quite unique but familiar as well. I get an orris root in the dry down, must be from Ananda's amber accord. Powdery and earthy but not cosmetic powder, but an earthy rootedness that comes direct from nature. This is a really powerful fragrance that connects a person to the heart of nature. A very bright, bold and unique take on rose.
