The rarity of Beach Glass

I know there’s a lot of excitement about Beach Glass this year, & I’m delighted to be able to bring it back for another season. I really don’t do beaches, as a rule – I burn in an instant, don’t swim, particularly, & am well past the stage of ogling cute boys. (Well, mostly.) Give me tide pools & rocks & old piers & washes of shells to pick through, on the other hand, & I’m a happy camper. I’ve got a jar in my box of antiquities that holds bits of beach glass I’ve collected throughout my life – I love the meditative search, the frosty translucence, & the idea of something sharp & dangerous worn smooth by nothing more than sand & water.

I blended two very different oceanic scents for this one – a light fruity tropical sea scent & a cold, briny, slightly masculine blend. On their own, neither was quite right, but together they brought each other to life. Beach Glass is warm & cool, sweet & stony, almost fizzy like a nose full of saltwater. Add it to a cool shower on a blindingly hot day & feel the heat just melt away…

I’ve only got a limited amount of Beach Glass in stock, thanks to That Supplier (yeah, you know the one), & when it’s gone, it’s gone, so if you have your heart set on it, you know what to do.

Beach Glass goes live June 30th.
