Sweeter Tings - Oriental Gourmand. A nostalgic and addictive fragrance with subtleties of comfort and goodness. The Italian citrus supported by precious woods from Haiti and North America, combined with floral rose, and Iris from Europe exemplifies the connectivity of storytelling through scent
Williamsburg Sleepover - Floral Woody Musk. This luminous fragrance captures the essence of an urban garden under shaded lights. The red roses, succulent blond woods and warm luminous ambers combine for a story of freedom and sensuality. The patchouly groves of Indonesia and the Ylang Ylang fields of Madagascar emanate confidence and intimacy for seduction in a candle.
Muskoka - Oriental Woody. The magical mist of Guaiac Wood, Cloves and precious Sandalwood perfectly captures the smoldering warmth of burning woods and golden embers. This is a warm and woody fragrance that emulates the feeling of cozy, comfort and campfire.
