These will be one-off special editions for everyone who joins us here, then they're only be available at our new building.
1. Take Me To The River
Our first fragrance is based on the Talking Heads live 1980s version of Take Me To The River:
"to capture by the feeling of an irresistible attraction to someone who's very bad for you but that you don't want to give up, not yet. If you've been there, you're probably very glad to be out of it, and maybe look back with a certain fondness but much more relief." Sarah.
Do listen to the song to get the idea, but we asked our Facebook group, 4160Tuesdays News what it should smell like and we got:
"whiskey, cigarettes, money, 80s loud perfume, lipstick, salt water/tears, dirt, roses and leather"
"sex and leather and tobacco"
"cocoa with the birch tar, orange, sandalwood and vetiver"
"Oakmoss, Patchouli, Civet, Smoke, Musk"
"Petrol, chalk, damp wood and metal (bit like what guitars smell like) and sweet sweaty musks. Analog cameras and bakelite, rubber shoes and vintage aftershave. 80’s velvet upholstery"
"fag smoke, leather jackets, sticky wooden floors, face powder, lippy & massive clouds of Elnett hairspray"
We're working on it now, but you get the general idea of the inspiration behind it.
2. Wash Me In the Water
"The fragrance of a soul-cleansing wildwater swim on a hot day, drying off on warm grass. A baptismal dunking in cool fresh water; a scented intervention to save you from yourself." Sarah
And from our Facebook group:
"Grass - riverside. Climbing/wild rose, wild thyme, apple blossom, sloe and bramble berry - all growing beside our local river"
"Wilted wild flowers for innocence lost"
"Wildflowers, grass, vanilla, wood, ambergris"
"moss, patchouli and a hint of salvation and release"
