Created for the amazing Liz Azevedo, of whom I am notoriously fond, to celebrate her family roots and mine: Fresh, green, non-Christmasy holly, pink peppercorn and old-world wonders, fused with the maile vines of Hawai'i, spiced with a tiny touch of cinnamon and sweetened with coconut and honey. It's green and tart and languid and floral-but-not-floral and breezy and deep. What a wonderful adventure it's been working with Liz to blend all the nuances of her history and memory. Lizzy, mi vida, please answer me in Portugese forever.
Handcrafted Calliope Crash fragrances by DarlingClandestine are suspended in pure skin-loving jojoba, rice bran and sweet almond oils. This listing is for Brasao y Kinolau fragrance oil in a 15 mL amber glass bottle. A multitude of scent elements and weeks of methodical alchemy make it not just a fragrance oil mix — -it's truly inimitable. Brasao y Kinolau does contain sweet almond oil (steer clear if you've got nut allergies) and cinnamon (use caution if you have skin sensitivity).
