The Metaphor Series is an exploration of the microscopic to the gargantuan. The tiny atom appears simple but is a bustling city of complexity. Star is a pin-dot twinkling in the sky, but she is the monstrous ball of fiery plasma that feeds us with her warmth. 


SCENT NOTES: warm rich resins (labdanum, cistus, frankincense, and myrrh), copaiba balsam, and saffron

Faint smells of saffron from hydroponic crocus and hybrid #G707 blue-berry are gently mixed with a robust blend of contraband ancient incense resins. Burnt, these odors project warmth and sparkle for a positive ionic charge.


SCENT NOTES: mandarin, petitgrain, black pepper, white sage, frankincense, and elemi resins, ambrette seed

Star is a starship. A battlestar. A voice of reason. The bright and shining hope. She is warm and she twinkles. She is also fire, and she can hurt you if you are not careful.
