Metamorphoses
Metamorphoses

Narcissus des Plaines is a luscious, intense floral with herbaceous backnotes produced in Grasse, France, a medieval town in southern Provence famous for its fragrant blooms since the 17th century. Created using a chemical-free, artisanal extraction, this precious oil is in its purest, most rare form – it takes more than three thousand pounds of fresh petals to produce just one kilo of this fine oil. A nervine known as anti-anxiety and sedative, these delicate flowers have appeared in folklore as love tokens, are associated with holding a lover in high regard, and are often thought to be aphrodisiac and sensually stimulating.

 

Metamorphoses

Prized by the ancient Greeks and Romans, pure pink lotus oil is a bright, slightly sharp floral with a velvety sweet heart. Purported to attract harmonious loving relationships, pink lotus is also used during the practice of meditation because it is thought to soothe and calm the spirit and to promote spiritual growth.

Metamorphoses
A pale honey yellow to bold orange flower, osmanthus is a divine floral bursting with notes of ripe apricot and pear. A stimulating scent, osmanthus is thought to inspire happiness, serenity, and to help bring about a more balanced and peaceful existence.
Metamorphoses
Grounding to the perfume and the mind, the soft, woody aroma of sandalwood helps to relieve anxiety, has anti-depressant qualities, and though it relaxes the nervous system, is said to give off erotic signals to the opposite sex and cause a subtle quickening of the pulse.
Metamorphoses

From the Greek meta or "change" and morphe "form,” metamorphosis indicates the loss of the original form and a transformation into something entirely new. A symbol of that transformation, the shell is never fully of the sea, nor fully of the land. Much like many believe that the soul experiences a transformation once our earthly form has gone, the beautiful shell persists despite the loss of the animal that is inside.  

Metamorphoses

Each vanity bottle is hand blown piece by piece by a small collective of glass artisans in Illinois. A beautifully sculpted whelk shell silhouette in a semi-opaque white glass, each piece is slightly unique to any other.
