  • The Colour Purple: Lavender + Lilac is a soft floral blend with a hint of chamomile.
  • Moby Dick: Sea Salty Air is a refreshing blend of ocean breeze, blue lotus, marine ozone, and cooling eucalyptus, with notes of briny sea botanicals and hints of citrus
  • Beloved: Blackberry Pie blends the scents of tart blackberry, hints of lemon zest, and basenotes of flaky pie crust
  • The Great Gatsby: Gin, Juniper + Daisy has top notes of juniper leaves blended with hints of tart green apple, rosemary, and subtle floral notes of daisy and jasmine; with herbaceous, earthy undertones
  • The Catcher in the Rye: Bourbon + Tobacco Flower has the warming, cozy scent of bourbon – caramel under tones and hints of vanilla – mixed with the sweet woodsy scent of tobacco flower and mahogany. It’s complex, a little moody, almost sophisticated but still a little playful, sweet with a touch of old-school masculinity.
  • Where the Wild Things Are: Sugared Citrus and Island Greens – sweetened grapefruit, lemon, and orange, hints of tropical fruit, and a touch of slightly exotic island greenery
  • Fahrenheit 451: Smoked Pine + Parchment is the scents of pine, balsam, bergamot, and smoky birch blended with base notes of antique sandalwood.
