Tuscan Orris Roll-on Aroma
We know how important aroma is in helping us remember stories from our past, connecting us to nature, making us feel at home wherever we are, and even helping us feel connected to something bigger than ourselves.
Yet most of us wear toxic perfumes that can cause allergies and even endocrine issues...these fragrances are even masking our own ability to literally stop and smell the roses...
Our mission at Carter + Jane is to create products that never harm people, the planet or animals. We are proud of the work that we've done (and will continue to do) in skin care and from the work we've developed a deep understanding of organic essential oils. We've blended our passion for skin care, with our love of natural aromas, into our line of beautiful scent journeys! All aromas are handcrafted in the USA and are made of organic essential oils blended with organic grape seed oil.
THE TUSCAN ORRIS STORY
"A scent with few natural analogues, orris is exceedingly rare, It's been a sought out ingredient in fine perfumery for centuries, speaking to its enduring appeal. This powdery sensuous aroma weaves a blend of ethereal Tuscan orris, rose otto and jasmine, with the citrus notes of yuzu and grapefruit, earthy notes of cedarwood and patchouli and the grounding warmth of labanum and vanilla, perfect for the unassuming yet confident wearer."
From our formulator...the story behind the story:
"Orris root is the rhizome of the Iris flower. In Tuscany, they are grown on sloping hills between rows of olive trees. Orris is a note that has been used in only the finest perfumes for centuries, as it's complexity and beauty is unlike any other...but it is both expensive to purchase and challenging to find...as it only comes from Tuscany. We've been asked by customers to incorporate a powdery, ethereal aroma, but given we never use synthetic fragrance, we knew the only way to achieve this was to source a reserve of Tuscan Orris, which we were able to do through our partner farms in Italy. To really experience the magical complexities of Tuscan orris, it needs to be perfectly balanced with harmonious top and middle notes...which we worked long and hard to achieve. Because of the complex nature of this aroma, it's a bit more challenging to describe...most certainly this is our most "ethereal" aroma to date...but one just needs to experience it for oneself."
