The Scent of Petrichor•
Last night I was chatting with a fellow botanical perfumer friend. I was telling her how I unintentionally chosen polarizing notes for the Element collection. Geranium, ylang-ylang and patchouli all tend to create a strong reaction for people when they smell them. It's either love or hate, there is no in-between.
I never intended to select polarizing oils when I created the blends. I chose each one based on the properties they provided and how they worked together in harmony.
The blend I was most nervous about was the Earth scent. I'm so glad I didn't let fear stop me from releasing it as it is one of the best sellers.
I've had customers tell me it smells like petrichor; the scent after a rainfall as the earth opens up.
With the long prairie winters people long for the scent of dirt! It's one of the most healing smells there is. It represents the opportunity for new growth and endless possibilities. It symbolizes reconnecting with the earth after months of frozen landscape and inner reflection.
If you are someone who loves the scent of petrichor, be sure to check out the earth products in the online store.
