Home Fragrance Diffuser 04 : smoked black tea, mugwort, birch
A spellbinding fragrance! First you are struck by the subtle, very smoky scent of Lapsang Souchong black tea. Before the aromatic and botanical facet of mugwort lends a surprising, unexpected freshness. Last but not least, notes of birch wood add depth and distinctive warm, sweet and leathery undertones.
PS: Birch wood is difficult to use as it is so potent. One drop too many is enough to ruin a creation. But in just the right amount, it does wonders for leathery notes.
What does the black tea note smell like in perfumery?
Have you ever heard of Lapsang Souchong? This black tea has intense, astonishingly smoky, oral and woody notes. After harvest, the tea is smoked on a pine wood re to give it a very distinctive woody and smoky avor. Invented in Fujian province in south-east China, Lapsang Souchong probably dates from the 18th century. Its name means “little leaves from the original mountain”. It is said that the tea growers – thinking the harvest was ruined and having to dry the tea as quickly as possible to avoid losing it completely – had the idea to smoke it with the wood of a local resinous tree.
What does mugwort add?
The scent of mugwort is described as camphoric, fresh, herbaceous and bitter. This small plant, extracted by distillation, belongs to the aromatic family. Its aromatic accents sometimes recall the more herbal facets of cannabis, and make a wonderful pairing with these notes.
How is birch wood used?
Birch tar oil is obtained by slow destructive distillation of the wood. These molecules are very heavy, have a powerful scent and stabilize the other ingredients. Birch wood adds depth and warm, sweet and leathery facets. It is very useful for creating natural leather notes.
How to use your diffuser?
Allow 24 – 36 hours for the fragrance to diffuse.
To improve the diffusion regularly turn the sticks. It is up to you to choose the number of sticks you wish to use. The more sticks you use, the stronger and faster the diffusion. Once nished, don’t throw it away! The glass of the candles and diffuser asks is recyclable. Bottles will become pretty vases for owers. A great way to give a second life to these products.
The plastic hunt is on!
We avoid cellophane as much as possible. The cardboard packaging of our diffusers and candles has been carefully chosen because of its dirt-resistant quality. The packaging won’t require an extra layer of plastic lm to protect the boxes.
