I'm happy to announce the release of one of my favorite collaborations of 2013. Pearl+ soap and OLO Fragrance have joined forces to release limited edition gift sets!
TOJI is based on the yuzu baths popular in Japan during the winter solstice. A citrus similar to grapefruit, yuzu is floated in steaming hot tubs of water. The hiba wood from the bath mats brings forth the wet warmth of cedar to intertwine with the brightness of the yuzu. I tend to visualize scent and TOJI looks like liquid gold and soft brown mist winding around one another, like an intimate dance. Main notes are yuzu, hiba and hinoki.
FORÊT NOIRE is a modified version of the original Forêt formula. We wanted something a little more heavy, a bit mysterious. It's still based on every forest I've ever walked through, I just added more moss notes to capture the essence of the forest floor after the rain. It feels a little misty, a little dark. Perfect for winter. Main notes are cedar, fir and oak moss.
These gift sets are limited edition so there will be no samples available. If you want to smell them live, I will be selling at Black Magic and Portland Bazaar. They may also be purchased on the Pearl+ website.
Each set contains an OLO Fragrance 5ml perfume and 2.5 oz Pearl+ Moisturizing Soap.
