Bee's Bliss is an uplifting blend of florals on a cozy base of amber, honey, fruity notes, musk, and vetiver. The floral heart features a beautiful natural mimosa extract teamed with jasmine, orange blossom, lilac, and beeswax to create the impression of a summer garden. As the florals fade, the amber and musk base provides a sweet and comforting skin scent, still kissed by soft honeyed florals.

Perfumer's Comments: I wanted to create a summery floral with a very pretty natural mimosa oil in the heart and a cozy blend of amber and musk in the base. I wanted the scent to be feminine and joyful, celebrating the florals, but I also wanted the drydown to be comforting and gentle, without strong woods. To counter sweetness, I used some green notes, oakmoss, and vetiver. I hoped to honor the story that inspired the scent, as described below.
Backstory and dedication: My assistant, Nancy, had a beautiful and very sweet cat named Magnolia Mae. Sadly, Magnolia Mae passed away last year, and we wanted to dedicate this scent to her memory and to the spirit of kindness.
When she was just a kitten, Magnolia Mae appeared one summer day in Nancy’s garden. Nancy was unable to find the owner despite searching, and Magnolia Mae could not have found a better home for the rest of her 12 years. Nancy and Magnolia Mae were kindred spirits, gentle and kind. A joyful, gentle, feminine summer floral felt right to honor this memory.
