Sun is a fragrance inspired by the very essence of life - the Sun. Crafted with all-natural ingredients, Sun embodies the spirit of flowers, woods, and resins, grown through the conversion of solar energy into plant material, making it a fragrance that truly captures the essence of the Sun itself.
Our meticulous selection of ingredients is based on the principle of 'less is more,' ensuring that the Jasmine and Ylang shine brightly in the opening notes, evocative of the radiant morning sun in Mississippi's (my home) summer. The addition of Tibetan (Himalayan) Cedar, one of the lightest cedar varieties, blends seamlessly with the fruity notes of strawberry and raspberry, creating a subtle yet captivating fragrance.
The challenge of creating Sun was the balance between creating an intense fragrance that does not overpower and remains office-friendly. Our initial versions had a bit too much intensity, and we decided to refine it by removing several base notes and reducing the concentration to 22%, making it a light and fleeting scent.
The rarity of some ingredients presented another challenge in creating Sun. Tonka Bean, an essential element of the original recipe, can be expensive and challenging to source for quality year after year. Nonetheless, we remain committed to offering the highest quality fragrances and plan to limit sales of Sun, the original, until we can source Tonka Bean sustainably.
