she leads and learns
Year: 52 BC
Cultural Identity: Ethnically Greek, Culturally Egyptian
Fragrance Notes: Floral
We look to Cleopatra as a great leader, known as the Queen of Egypt and last Pharoah to rule. Cleopatra led with confidence and charisma, while also being a mother to three. Many sources say that her charm was a result of her intellect, voice, and ability to make herself agreeable to all. It was her inward beauty and diligence to her work that magnified her physical attractiveness. Like Cleopatra, we believe women have leadership traits that are unique and have the power to transform the office or the home.
She creates and conserves
geisha green, The ARtisan
Cultural Identity: Japanese born and bred
Fragrance Notes: Earthy
We are inspired by the skilled artistry of geishas in traditional and modern day Japanese culture. Commonly misconstrued and misunderstood as glorified prostitutes, geisha purely means “to entertain”. They were and still are masters of various traditional dance, musical instruments, poetry, calligraphy, and tea ceremony. In the face of rapidly changing times, a primary goal of geishas are to preserve appreciation of traditional life. In this way, these highly talented women embody the preservation of time and history through the arts. Like the Geisha, we believe women can be highly creative and innovative when it comes to making.
She provides and persists
persephone, the nurturer
Cultural Identity: Greek, or so the story goes
Fragrance Notes: Fruity
Originally the Greek goddess of spring and rebirth, legends described Persephone as a radiant spirit who spent her days surrounded by beautiful fauna and flora. Believed to be a naturally nurturing spirit, Persephone could charm even her quiet husband Hades, the god of the Underworld. Despite circumstances that were less than ideal in her past, Persephone was devoted and persistent in making the most of her present. She brought spring and harvest each year without fail, demonstrating a consistency of character in service. Like Persephone, we believe in the strength of women to be kind and to persevere in difficulty.
