Terrestre Solid Natural Perfume Mini Compact
Engraved, oval, mini compact filled with Terrestre natural solid perfume. The meaning of the word terrestre is 'of the earth' in French, the fragrance is composed of a botanical synergy of resins, leaves, flower petals, woods and roots.
Terestre holds the energetics of elemental Earth, it is the home of our connection to the here & now - related to the base chakra, the place of manifestation, control & restraint and grounded in experience. Home of the Male, strength and ability to create magic. The spirit medicine of Snake dwells here with the ability to move swiftly, above and below the ground, to shed what no longer serves and be born anew. As Earth Hour began on the East Coast, on the West Coast I began formulating an Earth Hour Accord which would be used for this fragrance as a tribute to Planet Earth.
The fragrance defies genre as it is neither feminine nor masculine.
