Hungry Souls - Almas Hambrientas - Autumn 2022
An important aspect of the observance of Dia de los Muertos is the nourishment of those hungry souls who have passed from our lives. The celebration as a whole pays tribute to departed loved ones, but certain rituals acknowledge the return of those souls and the sustenance they require after such a long journey from the realms of the Dead. Numerous meals both savory and sweet are set out for those who have come to be close to their families and friends once more, but also those who may wander with no destination. We’ve created a mouthwatering treat suitable for *any* soul to experience olfactory gourmand delight - a wonderful reminder that Life Is Sweet, so enjoy its pleasures while you may! Fresh peanuts coated with rich gooey chocolate, folded into a deliciously sticky melange of caramel, brown sugar and toffee. (Beloved forum member, Eastwood most vociferously encouraged this Mani Choco blend!)

This year’s Autumn-Winter collection features an inspired collaboration with three dear friends of Latin American heritage: Israel Diaz and Brenda Castillo from Mexico, and Sacha Delgado from Puerto Rico, with the creation of an affectionate and mindful salute to the hallowed holiday observance of Dia de los Muertos, which is now celebrated in various countries and has taken root in popular culture worldwide. The scents of this celebration - to honor those loved ones who have passed on and remember their lives, as well as to remind the living that Life is sweet and should be enjoyed in the embrace of friends and family - can be found within these 13 fragrances, all aspects of traditions which stretch back (in some cases) centuries. Meditative and delicious, warm and ornate, and even a bit spooky - we hope you enjoy these lovingly-crafted fragrances and allow them to add a little MAGIC to your life!
