1st Edition sold out - MADE TO ORDER.  Frankincense, Linden Blossom, Jasmine, Orange, Lemon and Bergamot in a base of Sweet Almond Oil.

15ml bottle of original essential oil blend, with accompanying booklet. Part of the Winter 2017 series. BOSCO’S TOWER was made after a passage in The Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard, referencing Henri Bosco’s novel l’Antiquaire.

Bachelard considers the qualities of the tower as an imaginative space – and a journey from cellar to staircase up into the light and air. The scent creates this imaginative space, and the journey of finding it: a place that offers hope, light, solace, retreat, contemplation, inspiration.

Frankincense presents a spicy-woody, emboldening base as you begin your journey. Smooth, fresh floral mid-notes of Linden Blossom and Jasmine describe the staircase and the feeling of emergence.  The soft citrus top-notes of Orange, Lemon and Bergamot evoke the warmth of sunlight streaming through the windows of the vaulted tower, a feeling of refreshment and expanse.
