The Inspiration and Process: Our new blend CREATION has many sources of inspiration. It is swirled and marbled through with bright colors on a base of blue, a different way to evoke the idea of ‘earthy’. It took me a long time to decide on this name, because it was hard to really put into words the idea I was trying to express. But I chose this scent blend and design as an artist’s a way of expressing some of my emotions as of late. I keep coming back to this overwhelming feeling of interdependence, of interconnectedness, and how much we really do rely on each other, even if sometimes we are all apart. I minored in Religious Studies during my undergraduate degree, and in one of my classes, we studied a creation story in which the Earth and all that lived on it were all one, all part of each other, connected by a common energy, while still being separate beings. I think of threads tied to all of us and our loved ones and families and friends, even to strangers we pass on the street. While that is really deep for a bar of soap, that’s what my inspiration was when I blended this up.
There are woodsy, grounding notes of vetiver and sandalwood, with earthy-floral neroli and ylang-ylang, bold dashes of black pepper, bright juniper, and even a hint of fruity melon and sweet rose. I added a healthy splash of Laurel Berry Oil, a rich, fragrant ingredient that has been used for centuries in the production of Aleppo soap. It is such a complex scent for a complex idea. The result is definitely earthy, but not in a patchouli way. It is grounded but bold and bright, fruity, floral, spicy, and even busy, but all the very different scents combine together to make a beautiful, unique aroma.
