This new moon also marks the new lunar year, which is of course the real New Year! We are celebrating the Chinese (as well as many other eastern countries') tradition of citrus fruit offerings as a blessing of prosperity, abundance, and good fortune. This perfume has a heavy dose of clementine and tangerine, their deep orange color symbolizing gold. Sheer overtones of Ylang Ylang and other fruits sweeten this cheerful palate, while a sustainable sandalwood oil lengthens the duration of the fleeting citrus. Applying this one is like a a burst of optimism, just in time for the New Lunar Year.
There are several leftover refills from this batch in the Limited Edition section. I hope these make their way into your ritual of prosperity this year.
