THE ROSE COLLECTOR
| PEAK BLOOM . Terroir Perfume |
** VERY** Limited Return Batch 2022
when the clock escapes
do we catch butterfly moments
in our memories
as they slip and slide
through our clenching hours
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
inside of a breath
for skinned knees
at the altar of wild berries
peaks of pleasure
in that I lost me
and arrived whole

The Personal, the Process, The Gathered
like there isn't any
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.
