Solstice Scents Spring Limited Edition Perfume Oil (Limited)

Heather, Fern, Spring-fed Waterfall, New Spring Leaves, Earth, Wild Violet, Coumarin, Oak


This perfume has been reformulated as of 2019. It features a similar profile to the previous incarnation but is more complex, smooth and well rounded. The watery elements are more obvious and the addition of a variety of other green and botanical accents adds to a more dynamic atmosphere.

This scent contains notes of heather, lush fern, young spring leaves, rich Earth, creamy coumarin, a touch of wild purple violets and an assortment of woods, including oak, used to interpret the atmosphere of Devil's Millhopper. These notes are paired with a refreshing splash of spring-fed waterfall accord. On cold sniff and initial application it smells of fern, new spring leaves, vines, creamy coumarin and a fresh floral heather. The green top notes lead to a cool-toned floral heather surrounded by a mist of water. The dry down is soft, fresh and lush with a deep purple floral character and very light oak just beneath. It is not foresty or heavy on the wood notes. It smells lushly green and purple with a splash of crisp spring water. Close your eyes and feel the cool air pressing in from the sides of the sinkhole, a delicate mist tickling your face, the dappled sunlight peeking through the tops of the hammock above.

Devil's Millhopper is a unique geological formation that is 120 ft. deep and 500 ft. across at the rim. The sinkhole's name comes from its funnel-like shape which resembles a grist mill's hopper in which grain was held. Early settlers found fossilized animal remains and shark's teeth at the bottom and along the craggy walls leading them to believe that this was the place where bodies were fed to the Devil. Devil's Millhopper has a lush primitive environment with fern, moss, lichen, rare plants and a variety of trees. There are several small caves and waterfalls which flow into the basin below. The water then travels to an underground river which leads to the Florida aquifer.
