WAXED LEAVES

| base layers | 

what leaves do
on their way down
interests me
they're falling
no parachute
no cushion
no acrobatics
just free falling
like it's 
no big deal
just something they do once
a year
like closing the windows
before the first frost
and even though that
leaf has never
fallen before
it seems to remember 
the floating pattern of 
it's oaken predecessor
and somehow 
mimics the amber armed softness
and ember colored edges
with little effort.

Miraculously it lands
injury free.
Welcomed
by a spun net
of jungled earth
and mushrooms 
not yet bloomed.

The Personal, The Process, The Gathered.   

We've returned to the immersive experience of camping as of late. Sweater Stories and Waxed Leaves are both olfactory compositions that are informed by these sensorial, site specific experiences. New England autumns are so special, it's hard to capture its whole energy but small attempts through olfactory art seem a worthy effort.

As Falling becomes an archived perfume, I welcome Sweater Stories it its stead, at least for now. Waxed Leaves makes a beautiful base layer for Sweater Stories. 

You can take a peek into a couple of our camp experiences here and here

Waxed Leaves is a resonant balm that works as a delicious skin scent on its own, but also welcomes layering as its waxy nature and base note materials provide excellent fixative properties. 

100% Natural Perfume by Gather. Waxed Leaves is not vegan.
