Mellis Botanical Perfume is a natural honey accord perfume.  Blended on the full Honey Moon of June 2015.  Made of Beeswax, Honey, Orange Blossom, Cardamom, Cognac, Sandalwood, Rosewood, Agar wood, Benzoin, Vanilla, Rose, Jasmine & Almond.

MELLIS opens with a dry, clean yet powdery honey/floral bouquet, reminiscent of orange blossom honey, creamy gardenias on the breeze, fluffy pink mimosa blossoms, and freshly opened almond flowers. Sophistication are present from the first drop while remaining demure and feminine.

As the perfume warms on your skin (which it will not display in the bottle ... it must be worn! :) ... the sweetest and truest of honey notes unfold. Soft and cohesive ... displaying delicate nuances of lemon flowers, champagne, cardamom, beeswax, and vanilla .... though the perfume is well integrated and you may not be able to pick apart each note - this is good and indicates a happy alchemy of aromatics, creating something greater than the sum of its parts.

Mellis is a tribute to Honey Bees, to the sweetness of life, to full moons, to the miracle of flower nectar, and to the sacred and ancient art of scent adornment.

Chandra Botanical Perfume is a lunar ritual perfume.  Consists of Night Blooming Jasmine,  Sacred Palo Santo, Holy Basil {Tulsi}, Amber/Musk & Myrrh Resin. 

A moonlit ritual, a sky beaming with the radiance of Luna, round and full, an expression of the feminine divine. The women gather in the flicker of the night to cast spells of love, health, prosperity, and honor the cycles of the seasons.

They dance with reckless abandon in their white and blue gowns catching fairy light as they twirl and laugh and cackle in the dew kissed circle of stones. Candles flicker and illuminate the vines of jasmine dripping with open, heady scented blooms.

Incense coils upwards, sweet with ancient myrrh resins and earthy smoldering palo santo embers to protect the magic time. The smell of sweet anointed skin lingers in the breeze. Goblets of honeyed holy basil libations and sparkling herbal mead rest upon the altar. Invocations braided into chants echo through the land.

Bluegrass is an aromatic muse perfume.  It consists of Bluegrass, Sweetgrass, Clover, Hay & Lavender.  *It is currently sold out, but in case of it's return I'm including it here*

The quintessential smell of a summer field. Of fecund meadows rolling in golden wheat and fluttering oats. Of tall, gentle stands of white and pink clover. Steady and soft, green and inviting, a daydream resting on a breeze.

Bluegrass is an homage to down home comfort music; the fiddle and the banjo, and perfectly aligned voices like Leah and Chloe of Rising Appalachia. Bluegrass invokes nostalgia and a sense of familiarity. It opens smoothly with green grassy notes and a waxy bluegrass warmth. Lavender draws you in to the reverent Sweetgrass notes in the heart of the perfume. Beeswax and Clover hold long on the skin and are simply divine throughout the wear.

This perfume smells deeply natural to me - the way my skin carries home the smell of the plants after a day of wildcrafting elder flowers and skullcap in the tallest grass on the horse farm. The way I feel loosing myself to a nap in the summer lawn when the grass has just been cut. It smells natural on the skin and is easily a beautiful androgynous scent.
