Fir-ever Young Organic Natural Perfume
As mentioned in Oprah magazine… Find yourself in a sun-dappled forest of majestic emerald towers with this earthy scent for men and women that combines the redolent richness of the deep woods with the mouth-watering, raspberry-jam juiciness of fir absolute.
Never sharp or astringent, real conifer absolutes and essential oils have a sweet warmth that Fir-ever Young fans have described as delectable, luscious, passionate, expansive, and even spiritual. A whole forest of Douglas fir, silver fir, grand fir, blue spruce, juniper and more are joined by green and fruity florals, juicy citruses and black currants, with frankincense and agarwood for just a hint of smoke.
Fir-ever Young is planted firmly in a base of pineapple sage, fir, lavender, rose, agarwood and frankincense house-infused alcohols.
Fir-ever Young is a limited edition – a serendipitous perfume Laurie couldn’t possibly recreate. She worked on it for 10 years, adding bits and pieces of this and that. There is nearly every kind of tree in it, so to speak, and these elements will never again combine in quite the same way.
When I discovered fir absolute 19 years ago, I fell in love with its rich, woodsy scent and decided to use it as a base for a perfume for men and women. For a decade, I added to it, creating a perfume that grew more and more complex and wonderful but was never quite done, because as hard as I tried, I just could not think of a name. I decided to invite my customers to help me name the new scent. I sent out hundreds of samples for inspiration and received more fun, beautiful, moving ideas for names than I could use in a century of perfume-making--suggestions like Forest of My Imaginings, Tree of Life, and Purr. But when I read the entry from Kyoto Jackson of Berkeley, I knew my perfume at last had found its name. Fir~ever Young captures all the elements perfectly for me. Youth, adventure, wildness, cavorting in the woods, celebrating the majesty and power of the ancient forest. The name also connects me to the Bob Dylan song "Forever Young," which spoke to me profoundly when I was a young hippie gazing in awe at the forests of Big Sur and still expresses for me the innocence and hope of that time. For all its sensuality and earthiness, this perfume really does call out a sense of openness and wonder and brings to people that sense of passion we know so deeply when we're young.
