Spike and Thorn - Espiga y Espina - Enhanced with Teddy BB - Autumn 2022 - Unisex
Even a thorn tree
can feel like home
the little birds nest beneath the spikes
they know if you are careful
you can flutter within the tangle
rest in warm assurance
enfolded in safety.
Fall invites us to seek cozy situations, and this unisex Autumnal spicy-smokey-woody blending is just the scented mood you’re looking for! Varieties of sandalwood plus Palo Santo, cedar, pine, holly leaf and an Arabian wood attar with the resinous depth of patchouli and amber, spiced with chipotle and clove bud and leaf EOs, intriguing touches of sweet pipe tobacco, vanilla, and smoked caramel, then finished with a drift of woodsmoke. To encourage snuggling during the mellow days and chilly nights we’ve included a dose of our exclusive TEDDY POTION BB - peaceful, calming and soothing for everyone.

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!
