Do all hyacinths smell alike?

Yes…and…no.

While all smell generally hyacinth-y, there are marked scent differences between the colors, for one. 
White ones have prominent galbanum & overripe banana/faintly pineapple sweetness; many pink ones have a delicious clove and cinnamon note.  Pale yellow, salmon, purple and magenta blooms all have their little aroma idiosyncrasies, too. I love the odd cellophane note, reminiscent of childhood Easter baskets, some give off. 

Blue.. pale, deep, lavender-blue… ones all veer quickly into a bottom of the pond decay, as if asparagus were decomposing in it. All hyacinths eventually reach that whiffy point in their aroma lifeline, and that is when they become unpleasant. Not good models for perfume! 

This hyacinth perfume, made from my enfleurage extrait + plus accords composed of natural materials, was based on the scent of white & pink blossoms, leaning into the green , finishing in an elegant earthiness.

Because I practice the art of enfleurage, and grow so many flowers, noticing the variations in scent is much the way an artist sees many shades of one color. Red is not merely red, but scarlet, carmine, vermillion, etc.

What I love about this hyacinth perfume, besides its containing a genuine fragrant extraction of the flower (enfleurage), it’s a very emotional perfume.. a bit plaintive, like a song of Spring’s bittersweetness.

Catching the Light…

It’s not “just” that TF plants are grown on site, Biodynamically. 
All the whole plant extractions also are potentized according 
to special medicine making methods of Biodynamic agriculture’s uber -origins, and by default from Eurythmy practiced daily in the apothecary.
 
Inspiration even, for the formulas, comes through seeing into plants, nature cycles + human being/skin, in a spiritually detailed manner, details of the incredibly intricate ways the spiritual works into substance, nature, rhythms.

Underneath that, also a long tuition in more traditional plant medicine/herbalism & healing arts; 
growing plants/various iterations of this farm, plus empathic communication with the elemental beings.

It wasn’t possible over thirty years ago to see where this/my path was headed. So often it was daunting… and frustrating. 
How could all this, plus life as an artist come together in a form to share, to live that felt of a wholeness, that was mine to do? Knowing it needed to be this, nothing less, in order to fulfill, 
yet not ever knowing how and when  was so very hard. Real beauty, wisdom and depth doesn’t come without trials.

Late bloomers, take heart! 
When it comes together, perhaps akin to giving birth, the pain is but a faint memory in thought only. But ..it takes trusting your heart & inner voice,
even when things seem not to go right at times. 

This is the Hibernal facial balm, 
from the recent (past.. sorry, shop is closed until 2023) update.. 
a potent concoction in the calendula focused trio.. rich enough for winter yet unencumbering. 
Its essence is light, as spoken by the plants to your skin.
Winter is the time of Light igniting in the dark depths.❤️‍🔥
