To Bee Solid Natural Perfume Mini Compact
A tribute to the little winged alchemist, the honey bee. This natural, organic fragrance is emblematic of the warm, musky bee hive. The name "To Bee" is a reference to who the perfume was made in reverence to as well as the Shakespeare quote from Hamlet "To be of not to be, that is the question?" After all, if we continue to destroy our natural environment true botanical perfume will no longer be possible, the honey bee will become extinct and life as we know it will cease to exist.
The fragrance defies genre as it is neither feminine nor masculine.

The warm, spicey-sweet fragrance is contained in an engraved oval shaped compact opening to reveal a separate round pan filled with solid natural perfume. These cases are made in the USA from vintage molds that go back to the 1940's. Each one has been plated with a special finish to create an antique quality. No lead or nickel have been utilized. The front of the compact contains a Victorian diamond pattern that has an antique brass finish. The case measures 42mm tall (just over an inch and a half) by 33mm wide (1 1/4 inches) and the inside recessed circle for the solid perfume pan measures 23mm. The small tray will supply about 30 applications of the fragrance. Also included are a set of little informational cards all contained in a pillow box.Check out the To Bee LookBook here.
