Amber Sambaca is traveling the country ...

I am just getting ready to ship out many bottles of Amber Sambaca to some wonderful people! I hope you all love it. It was a true labor of love, this perfume.
It gave me some wicked fits in the development stages over these last several months.
I am really excited to have people experience it!

Hair horns and blue bathwater

A friend of mine makes these bright blue bathbombs which my son loves! This isn't the picture I was looking for exactly but you can still see the water color! How fun is that. :)
The best part ... he isn't blue when he's done. The other photo is my son shampooing his hair and happily displaying a closeup of his hairhorns.

Introducing Amber Sambaca perfume!

Our new Amber Sambaca perfume is not for the meek at heart. It is a complex, heady exotic perfume said to inspire provocative thoughts of romance and sensuality. Opening with a medley of lush and musky Arabian jasmine sambac, mandarin, fresh ginger, orange and rose absolute, and finishing with a deep rich array of amber resins, vanilla bean oleoresin, vetiver, sandalwood, lavender seville absolute. All grounded nicely by myrrh and patchouli in a base of Organic virgin coconut oil, fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil, macadamia nut oil, and cyclomethicone. This perfume dries down very differently on the skin than it’s scent directly from the bottle.
That said, it must be experienced on the skin for an hour or more to enjoy it’s many layers and evolutions. Photos to follow this week!

A pictorial in shades of green.
1. a few drops of seaweed absolute in alcohol
2. after aging a couple weeks the fickle absolute hasn't thinned much
3. strained to a lovely shade of light green
4. one drop of lavender seville absolute
5. a few drops of blue cypress and blue chamomile added before stirring you can see the color dissapating.
