Halcyon Hair & Perfume Oil - NEW!
A rich, sepia-toned blend of aged oak & teakwood, sweet honeysuckle, golden vanilla & ripe pear
Warm lamp light, gleaming oak floors, the quiet stillness of a spring evening spent curled in the parlour with a good book & fine company. Halcyon was inspired by a beautiful piece of music, a score written by Rachel Grimes to accompany a silent film originally made in 1938. The film follows a family as they go about their day, doing nothing more remarkable than eating, gardening, working, living their lives together. It is beautiful in its simplicity, as is Rachel's music. I wanted to capture that feeling of quiet abundance, of home & hearth, of happiness in simple things.
Halcyon begins with a base of oak & vanilla that I've aged for nearly two years. Blended with exotic teakwood, feminine honeysuckle blossoms & sweet ripe pear, it's an unusual but inviting scent that wears so beautifully...
It's only taken me ten years, but your PBSW dreams have come true: a whisper-light, -cone-free hair oil formula meets luxuriously lush perfume oil for a full-body PBSW experience! Daikon radish extract is an amazing alternative to traditional silicones, providing silky shine & skin-feel without build-up or environmental concerns, Meadowfoam seed oil provides excellent scent retention plus a massive dose of antioxidants, meaning your PBSW scents will stick around both in the bottle & on your skin. Argan & jojoba oils team up to treat your hair, your scalp, & your skin with gentle moisture, & a tiny drizzle of isopropyl myristate keeps things from getting greasy. Your favorite PBSW blends, made from quality, vetted, phthalate-free synthetic fragrance oils & essential oils, are added at a percentage that gives delicious throw without the risk of dermal irritation or gassing your coworkers out of the elevator.
The end result? A light-as-air powerhouse oil blend that delivers your favorite PBSW scents without dripping, smudging or spilling, in a sleek bottle that's ready for your bag or pocket but pretty enough to display!
To use as a hair oil, roll lightly into the palm of your hand, then apply with your hands or fingers as desired. For best results, concentrate on the ends of your hair, rather than the scalp.
To use as a perfume oil, apply directly to pulse points, taking care to avoid irritated, broken, or inflamed skin. I always recommend testing a small amount on the inside of your elbow before committing to a full slathering. Discontinue use if irritation occurs; please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
This listing is for one (1) .3 ounce glass roller bottle of hand made hair & perfume oil, blended by hand in small batches, with oil resistant labels, & shrink wrapped for your safety.
As always, all ingredients are clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Raphanus Sativus (Radish) Seed Extract, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Fragrance Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Tocopherol
Keep away from direct sunlight & extreme temperatures, & use within three years of purchase.
If the color gold had a smell, it would be this

I was a little unsure about this scent when I read the description, not being that big a fan of heavy wood smells, but actually smelling it changed my mind in a big way. The woods aren't overpowering at all, but rather form a lovely rich base for the rest of the scent. My first thought upon smelling was "this is what gold smells like," and it has quickly become one of my favorite perfumes when I just want something lovely, rich, and bright.
