indian summer – the scents

scent has something magic to it, already in its name somehow,
~ & we’ve probably all had experiences of time travel in its company.
one of our most magic experiences involving scent at all, 
must be the hours we spent selecting top, ~ & base notes for these,
our first scented candles. just the setting.. an all white little candle factory
in the outskirts of the jungle; where the american owner had a longterm standing
collaboration with the world capital of perfume; grasse in france.

we travelled, in many ways, together that glowing afternoon;
carefully opening tiny apothecary bottles in long rows, 
labelled with their special perfume, ~ & mixing these, our three
final scents to start off with. a light, airy one; later named love and linen,
a ’middle one’, with flowery tones and history,
~ & a heavier one, with musky chocolate. something for each taste.

we would sit and listen to their stories of the scents,
~ & one in particular we so enjoyed; having seen both men and
woman wear a flower behind their ear in the little town.
we were taught the chempaka flower is used for worship in the temples,
but also worn as a sign, behind the ear of singles, to send the
fragrant & beautiful message that they are looking for love.

and now, as the indian summer selection has launched,
we are so happy to take you along with us, on this, our first fragrance journey..
we’re all children in the beginning as we say in swedish,
~ & we’d love some of your constructive feedback on our first attempt.
