what's that smell?
we thought it would be nice to take an early morning hike through a Himalayan forest, just as a light breeze filled the air with the woodsy scent of sandalwood trees. but our boss wouldn’t give us the time off. so we made this soap instead.
a fragrant bouquet of freshly cut basil, rosemary, sage and thyme. we couldn’t plant a garden and handpick herbs for you, but if we could, they would smell a lot like this.
you’re meditating on a rocky cliff, eyes transfixed on the vast blue ocean below. with each crashing wave, a spritz of salty sea water mists your face. inhale. exhale. it’s like a refreshing fantasy. actually, it is one.
if citrus fruits had personalities, these would be the sweetest of the bunch—lovely lemon, delightful mandarin and appealing orange. you can’t pick a better combination.
