Hope is a honeyed floral & gourmand composition based on Linden Blossom CO2 from Bulgaria. This natural perfume includes my 2020 Mozambique ambergris.
When I was feeling overwhelmed by the events of 2020, I created it as a solid pomade to help me get through difficult days. My first formula smelled like gummi bears, according to my grandson! When others found their spirits lifted by the familiar-yet-unusual ingredients, I created a small batch to share.
Our little bee hive made a very rich early honey this spring, with a meaty umami taste and deep color - probably from cedar pollen and a great variety spring wildflowers- that had similar qualities of familiar-yet-unusual. Hope and this honey have the same deep color. But please don't eat the Hope! It's for external use only.
