  • Autumn 2020

Andromeda Autumn

Soft white pepper, amber resin, labdanum absolute, guaiac wood (simulated), and a slightly sweet caramel note.


Warp Speed to October

Late summer oak leaves just as they begin to turn yellow and brown, an air of saltwater, worn leather, and linen, rich oakmoss, a scattering of fresh wood chips, and a hint of bergamot.

Warlock Of Centaurus

Sharp black pepper and powdery amber resin dominate, followed by warm, sweet acacia wood, hints of patchouli and saffron, with a note of soft suede.


Magellanic Cloud Mage

Crushed violet petals, drying tobacco leaves, lightly toasted marshmallows sprinkled with a bit of brandy, rich sandalwood in the background.

Flaming Tree Nebula

Bergamot is softened by Himalayan cedar and aromatic juniper woods, with sweet orange, Hinoki wood, and the bright greenery of Nepali palmarosa.


Aerobraking

The combination of warm machine oil, cold titanium, and the slightly stale scent of re-circulated oxygen.

Skiing On Europa

The atmosphere of a distant moon, not as habitable for mammals as Earth, the thin air reminiscent of high mountain elevations before snowfall. Cold, and ozonic like petrichor.


Cepheus

Soft notes of sandalwood, dry tobacco leaves, amber, acacia wood and a hint of pink "pepper" (Schinus Molle) are livened up with sweet lime and a touch of honeydew melon.

Taqueria Enceladus

Taco salad! Crisp green iceberg lettuce, shredded of course, with cilantro leaves, diced fresh tomato, taco seasoning, all in a crispy, warm corn tortilla bowl.


Pinwheel Galaxy

Hot, buttery, slightly salty caramel being cooked, with a wisp of smoke as a few sugar crystals hit the fire.

Cosmic Rays

The inviting scents of simmering garam masala, turmeric, a sprinkle of cardamom, fresh ginger, and a little extra black pepper.


Soya Milky Way

Ginger Vanilla Ice Cream! Rich creamy vanilla swirled with thin slices of crystallized ginger.

Deep Space Garden Grill

From a vented slow cooker wafts the savory scents of herbs such as sage, marjoram, thyme, black pepper, and fresh vegetables including carrots and celery cooking in a "buttery" vegan broth.

___________________________________________________


Lebanese Cedar

Old "Arz Ar-Rabb" (أرز الربّ), slightly reformulated. Soft, honey-thick benzoin resin, fresh-cut cedar wood, juniper wood, sandalwood, just a hint of smoke in the air, and the barest whiff of tart geranium. Contains no synthetic aroma-chemical components.

Ya Habibi

Wisps of sweet incense smoke over oud, Lebanese cedar, black pepper, and a hint of amber resin.


Margherita

Margherita from 2017 has been recreated mid-2020 to have more fresh tomato & basil. Not the oily, hot melted cheese variety, but more like a true artisan pizza with plenty of fresh basil leaves over slightly sweet marinara sauce on a pan crust. A warmly herbal fragrance.

Salish Sea

2017 version improved for 8/2020: Altered to be more daily-wearable and slightly less "low tide". Salty cool air, pacific inland water, surrounding greenery, and a touch of bull kelp. No florals or dryer-sheet beach scent; this is the cold shore of the Pacific Northwest. Our interpretation of the scent of Puget Sound down the road from our studio. This is a murky, dark oil and may contain visible particles.

  • Little Wild Cats

Rusty-Spotted Cat

Tiny and adorable, this cat lives only in most of India, Sri Lanka, and a small portion of Nepal. From Gujarat, India is Ghari: a milky, buttery (mawa and ghee respectively) cookie-like treat with an almond filling, coated in ghee and sugar.


Andean Mountain Cat

This beautiful but endangered small cat lives in limited parts of Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile, mainly in high elevations. From Peru is Quinua con Leche. Warm pudding made of quinoa, milk, panela, and a touch of cinnamon (more spices are often used but we wanted the grain and creamy notes to be prominent).

Serval

With a distinctive appearance and long legs for jumping high, Servals inhabit many countries across Africa, including Nigeria. Which is where you can find the popular treat, Puff-Puffs. Similar to western style donut holes, these can be found with various flavors and added ingredients (often spices or even onion). Yeast dough, raw and white sugar, a drop of vanilla, the scent of fresh cooking oil.


Jungle Cat

Felis chaus inhabits a wide scattered area from Vietnam to Egypt, north to the Caspian Sea region of Russia. From her range in Lebanon, we chose Date-filled Maamoul. Buttery semolina cookies are shaped then stuffed with a mix of finely minced or pureed dates and orange blossom water.

Fishing Cat

Fishing Cats, who primarily inhabit wetlands, now have very small scattered territories in limited parts of Southeast Asia. We've attempted to simulate the scents of a dessert called Watalappan from the island nation of Sri Lanka. Coconut custard often made with jaggery, cardamom, nutmeg, and a couple sliced cashews on top.


Caracal

Caracals have an extensive homeland, from large parts of southwestern Asia, across regions in the Middle East to portions of the African west coast. The name originates from Turkish, and we chose a common sweet from Turkey, Şambali (common in much of the Middle East and North Africa but varied by region). This semolina-based cake is drenched with lemon syrup then decorated on top with peanut halves for a sweet but slightly savory treat.

Black-Footed Cat

This very small cat, while rather adorable, is an exceptional hunter who resides in a relatively small area consisting of Namibia, South Africa, and Botswana. From South Africa is Malva Pudding: a rich spongy cake containing apricot jam and soaked in an even richer buttery caramel sauce.


Oncilla

Oncilla ranges through parts of the northern half of South America up through Central America. We chose Bienmesabe from Venezuela for his sweet treat. This meringue-topped layer cake is heavy on the coconut cream which has a noticeable amount of cooking sherry (we used a sweet liqueur note).

Sand Cat

The sweet-faced Sand Cat's range includes parts of west Asia across to Morocco and Western Sahara. From Morocco, we chose Meskouta, a cake traditionally made with yogurt and often flavored with orange. Our version of this cake is flavored with orange blossom and cardamom, with a light orange and sugar syrup glaze.


Just A Nip

Fresh catnip from spring gardens (before it has been loved on and squashed by neighbor kitties), a little Ceylon tea, a splash of vanilla and just a touch of sweetened cream. Envisioned as a hot or chilled tea, this is very heavy on the (actual) catnip but neither minty nor sharply herbal.

  • Spring 2020

Narcissus' Reflection

Brilliant daffodils and fragrant carnations in organic soil brighten up a warm, rainy day.

Hyakinthos

Sweet hyacinth dominates gentle notes of patchouli, resins, Himalayan and Atlas cedarwoods, oud, and amber.


Killiney Hill

Cold, salty air off Dublin Harbour, with green shrubs, clover, and early wildflowers dotting the rough hillsides.

Wicklow Wildflowers

Various blooms such as wild orchids, thyme, and clover, easily found among fields of greenery throughout spring.


Dianthus

The spicy-sweet scent of carnations (a species of dianthus), with soft hints of freesia, black tea, and honey.


___________________________________________________

Gila

Freshly chopped tomato, tomatillo, cilantro (represented by coriander), a sprinkle of chilled herbs, and a drop of lime juice create a garden-fresh fragrance reminiscent of pico de gallo.

Crystalline

Creamy coconut dominates, followed by carnations, neroli, a touch of vanilla, and a drop of labdanum resin to prevent this fragrance from being too sweet.


Talisman

Sweet tobacco leaves drying in the sun, vanilla bean pods on cedar planks, a sliced blood orange, and a drop of cream.

Petra

A somewhat syrupy blend of frankincense, benzoin, and myrrh resins, with a slight air of worn leather, black pepper, and sandalwood.

___________________________________________________

Pomodorini

Ripe hybrid cherry tomatoes on the plant, slightly sweet and tangy with an herbaceous tomato leaf fragrance.

Heirloom Tomato Leaf

Rows of tomato plants on a humid day, their unmistakable heavy green fragrance filling the air and clinging to your hands as you touch the leaves.

Pandan Frosting

The distinctive scent of Pandan stirred into sugary frosting.

Tipsy Toucan

Mango and tangerine are blended with fresh ginger, vanilla, and a few drops of brandy.

El Yunque

Sweet guava and tangy pineapple sliced and topped with a few violet petals, then a tiny sprinkle of chili powder. Does not contain capsicum.

Dulces Sueños

The rich scent of plumeria flowers at night, alongside ripe mangoes with a dash of cardamom.

Fruit Bat Brunch

Bunches of ripe bananas and less sweet plantains, fresh-cut pineapple, and a few slices of blood orange.

Amaroso

Tart blood oranges, syrupy-sweet dark cherries, with gentle wisps of smoke.

Ararat Honey & Apricots

Dark wildflower honey is served alongside apricot jam, rich with a slight bittersweetness. Assumed to be native to the fertile soils of Armenia, apricots are abundant in summer, widely grown in the Ararat valley.

Armenian Rose

The fragrance of dark rose petals and sweeter pink roses with hints of the earthy scent of native lilies.

Indecent Glamour

A robust mix of Centifolia and Damask roses, intertwined with syrupy frankincense and benzoin resins, a hint of freshly cut wood.

  • Winter 2019

I Saw Daddy Kissing Santa

An air of crisp, cold winter nights in far northern forests meets the warmth of a cozy house. Dying embers in the fireplace, towering fir trees, a touch of sweet pipe tobacco, chimney smoke clinging to his beard, with light notes of fresh greenery and bergamot.

Arctic Foxes Having Cake

Airy angel food cake with a messy crust, just out of the oven with the barest background of various sweet kitchen scents.

Blissful Darkness

Homemade devil's food cake adjusted to have a little more bitter cocoa and be a little less sweet, baked with just a bit of dark roast coffee in the batter, enjoyed on a midwinter evening.

Forest Grandeur

A forest just at the base of the mountains, dominated by fir, hemlock, western red cedar (not a true cedar, but a cypress), and various pines. They grow so close together in some spots that in the first few light snows of the season, the ground is nearly dry under the branches, and walking through you still get the scent of warm earth and brown needles beneath the evergreen boughs and sweet wood scents.

Chai Kurdi

Steaming Indian black tea, two sugar cubes dropped in with a touch of cinnamon, in a popular but calm teahouse (chai khana) livening up an ancient building.

* The cinnamon in this blend is a very slight amount and should not cause skin sensitivity issues, but as with all fragrances we highly recommend testing a small spot prior to prolonged wear.

Paw prints

Cold snowy air flows through fir branches and over a base of leather, with a hint of slightly musky myrrh and juniper wood (commonly called cedarwood).

  • Colors


Faust: The Fragrance

An air of sweet pipe tobacco over hearth smoke, bow rosin, mahogany wood, and a touch of German chamomile. 

Mephisto: The Fragrance

Worldly riches and desires, all for such a small price.
Dark oud, sweet frankincense and benzoin resins, tempting honey, and a wisp of otherworldly smoke.

Serendipity: The Fragrance

Three rich vanillas sprinkled with raw sugar and a drop of sweet liqueur, paired with freshly cut Himalayan cedarwood.

Steampunk: The Fragrance

Engine grease, gasoline, dirt, bittersweet lamp oil, and firewood.

Polar Bear: The Fragrance

Vanilla, vanilla, and more vanilla, creamy but not overly sweet, intertwined with just a bit of palo santo and sandalwood, then cooled with crisp peppermint.

Reindeer Fur: The Fragrance

Rice pudding and cream, pepperkake, marzipan, gløgg, snowy air, and a hint of musky fur.

Winter Sunrise: The Fragrance

Gentle sweetness in a warm room as the coral rays reach over the snowy mountains, plus light amber, Douglas fir needles, with the barest air of cedar and subtle pastry spices.

  • Shipwreck

Starboard Bow

Weathered wood drying under the emerging sun, after being battered for days by cold saltwater and high winds.

Bitter orange and a bit of lime peel, Himalayan cedarwood, the barest touch of musk, with hints of thyme and labdanum.


Captain's Quarters

A shirt of flax linen alongside a spare leather doublet, boots too new to yet be worn down by the elements, a couple well-loved books next to a candle, and small resin vials he had no doubt picked up on various voyages were what you first noticed upon stepping into the captain's small but distinguished quarters. Few people had this privilege, but you had been specially invited.

Leather, cotton, hardwoods, salty air, a touch of sweet frankincense, with just a hint of rum.


Black Squall

Open waters of the deepest blue, eerily calm before the looming arcus cloud in the distance bears down, revealing the wrath of the storm behind it. There was little left to do now but watch and wait.

Cold and clean-smelling seawater, ozonic air, now and then a little olive oil from the lamps.


Cutlass & Dagger

Once a winsome and capable privateering brig, and now, well that was before the Captain's falling out of favor with the owner and taking full control in payment for monies owed. Now the crew seized upon opportunities in a journey northward, answering only to her, yourself as Quartermaster, and the wrath of increasingly cold waters.

Coastal juniper wood, sandalwood, neroli, pale amber, ho wood, polished steel, patchouli, and an air of clary sage.


Phoenician Routes

Reaching Cyprus in the early evening, just a quick stop before resuming the voyage home, the hold is opened to reveal crates and jars of recently acquired goods from lands to the north, and those which were brought from the Red Sea shores and beyond.

Rich oud and frankincense mingle with sandalwood, a pinch of indulgent saffron, bergamot, then just a bit of black pepper and warm musk.


Adriatic

He commands the ocean as one could expect of Poseidon himself. On shore that tenacity without arrogance was ever-present, gaining him respect and admiration with ease.

Various hardwoods, salty air, wet sandstone, notes of grapefruit and geranium, grounded with just a drop of smoky vetiver.


Jacquotte Delahaye

She didn't venture too far from her native Haiti, pirating throughout the warm Caribbean in the mid 17th century. Business is business, but surely there was always time for indulgence.

Freshly dried tobacco leaves, breezes off the shallow seas, bitter Amyris, a little rum, and a touch of uplifting neroli.


Brigantine

Stores of rum grew thin fast, and rations of grog lessened when the crew was still days from the closest inhabited islands. Though the long nights would be worth the wait.

Dark, sweet molasses-like rum, aged in charred barrels and highly sought after.


Smugglers' Tea

With inflated prices and high duties, thanks to the East India Company's monopoly on the trade, smuggling was a more profitable, albeit dangerous, avenue to bring tea from China to merchants in Europe.

Black tea leaves, a slight air of smoky green leaves, hints of tobacco, and local wood from the packing crates.
