Smell, our most intense and enduring sense, is an important source for feelings of comfort, well-being, clarity and joy. In our Research and Development Laboratory, our perfumer spends her workdays developing fragrances that capture these feelings, so each collection will reward you with a unique sensory experience. She works as an artisan works, mixing blend after blend, to find a crisper note of citrus, the lushest-smelling lavender, a bergamot with just the right bloom. Our attention to these small details ensures that the fragrances you experience will always be complex, delightful and more than a little surprising. Working in concert with our perfumer, our highly qualified (and all female) chemists are intent on finding the exact combination of ingredients to make a product that's effective, beneficial, safe and responsible to use. We begin with botanical sources whenever possible, from suppliers who are responsible and concerned with maintaining a balance in the environment. In our formulations, we favor vegetable oils instead of those derived from petroleum and essential oils instead of synthetic fragrances. Two recent collections -Fresh Basil and Ginger Milk - contain organic extracts. Many of the ingredients we choose are naturally rich in vitamins and minerals and contribute valuable benefits. Our collections also feature essential oils and botanical extracts from flowers, herbs, fruits, leaves and roots for their aromatherapeutic effects or their ability to balance and protect the skin.
