“The sense of smell can be extraordinarily evocative, bringing back pictures as sharp as photographs of scenes that had left the conscious mind.”
— Thalassa Cruso

Collections Look Book: My Story

Each of my scents are inspired by people, places, and experiences from my life. The unique names of each scent are like chapter titles to part of my story, revealed and experienced with each burn. So far, I’ve shared parts about my childhood; my time as a freshly single woman trying to rebuild herself whilst living in a studio apartment in Washington, DC; my partner and his unconditional love and unwavering support; my time in France when I fell in love with the discovery of the new and first realized the importance of listening to and trusting myself; the joy (and humor) of being a mother; and a bit about my experience of being raised in a southern family with southern values. I also feature scents that represent ideas and beliefs that are meaningful to me.

I hope you enjoy these scents and their stories as much as I do.
