The Bees' Lament Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub - Chrysanthemum, Scarlet Leaves, Sandalwood, Honey Musk... Limited Edition
The Bees' Lament Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub
A melancholy autumn blend of pollen-dusted chrysanthemums, scarlet leaves & aged sandalwood, a twist of gardener's twine & the honeyed musk of bees
“Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don't they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.” - Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine
The Bees' Lament captures that special sadness of autumn, of dwindling sunlight & fading gardens. It's a musky, honeyed floral cut with vegetal notes of maple leaf & hemp & beautiful aged sandalwood. It's the setting sun shining golden through overgrown fields, slow bees bumbling among the glittering grasses in search of the last of the season's flowers. The Bees' Lament is feminine, languorous, and a beautiful tribute to our apian friends...
Sorbetto is a delightfully malleable, scoopable sugar scrub fortified with nourishing rice bran, avocado & grape seed oils & luxurious mango butter. Massaged into wet skin, it emulsifies into a light, creamy lotion that gently cleanses, polishes & moisturizes, leaving you feeling deliciously soft & smelling wonderful :) This listing is for a generous 11 ounces of emulsifying sugar scrub, blended by hand in small batches with no SLS/SLES, parabens, propylene glycol, -cones, animal products, coconut oil or shea butter (for my sensitive customers). Most of my fragrances are phthalate-free, too! I don't whip my scrubs, so you get a jar packed with product, not air. I pack Sorbetto in a recyclable plastic jar, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Sucrose (Sugar), Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sorbitol, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Sodium Chloride (Salt), Fragrance Oil, Phenoxyethanol & Tetrasodium EDTA (paraben-free preservatives), Yellow Oxide, Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Petals, Cosmetic-Grade Glitter
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from jar to jar. To prolong the life of your Sorbetto, keep it tightly sealed & avoid introducing excess water to the jar. A clean plastic spoon is ideal for scooping out just the right amount :) Please use Sorbetto within 3 months of opening, & discontinue use if irritation occurs. I specifically blend Sorbetto not leave a greasy film, but it may leave your tub a bit slippery, so do be careful :) Scrub up!
The best thing I have ever smelled

Decided to try a few samples to test out this company. One whiff of this and I was sold. I hope they make it permanent, it's happiness in a jar.

I am so excited to see this again this fall. I happened upon this last fall and fell in love with this scent!!! It is one of my all time favorite things and I thought I would never get the chance to smell it again. I placed a larger order this time around. The scrub itself is also pretty fantastic. It doesn't dry my skin out and yet it doesn't leave an oily film on my skin either.

Just a very heady, soothing scent all at once - kind of floral, kind of foodie, and super soothing. Enjoying the scrub as well!
