Willow® is the name of one of our top selling luxury fragrances. Yes, of course we call all of our products "luxury" but a few of them go beyond that. What do you call even more luxurious luxury? We don't know, so we just continue with "Luxury".
It's Like Your Favorite Perfume
Three Years to Formulate a 10
From Our Fragrance Developer
This is what our Fragrance Developer has to say about Willow™ -
Although it's so hard for me to select a favorite from the UnEarthed® lineup, I can certainly say Willow™ is absolutely in the fight for the top two (Augustus is my absolute favorite). It's one of the most powerful fragrances available, not just in the UnEarthed® line, but on the market! Although that is my personal requirement for burning candles, that's not exactly why I love it. There's the personality factor too. Every fragrance we develop has a specific personality and some have a story.
In developing Willow™, we needed to find, through fragrance, the feeling you get when you experience seeing a living weeping willow. It's impossible not to stare and the visual could easily relax you right to sleep with its hypnotic motion. The weeping willow's massive stature, no matter the size, is the most graceful of trees with a slow-motion sway, like an ocean of foliage. The personality of the Willow™ fragrance is powerful, soft and meditative "green" without clearly being a "green" fragrance. It is absolutely worthy of the majestic power of a weeping willow, with an unforgettable gracefulness.
We Went Back to the Drawing Board
During development, going through many "green" versions, nothing seemed to offer this described feeling you get, when you experience that massive visual. So, we went back to the drawing board and formulated our own fragrance. That tends to be the way we do things because it's nearly impossible to find exactly what you're looking for just by saying to the perfume house, "send me a ,'weeping willow' fragrance". The best thing about doing things this way is that other companies, if they love what you're doing, cannot exactly duplicate your fragrance, because the crossover molecules are just massive...too massive for duplication. Anyway... excuse the fragrance jargon.
How We Describe Willow
Luxury Gift Candle
As for a clear description, Willow™ is truly hard to describe, as you can tell, while I stumble through my thoughts, but I can certainly say, when I burn a Willow™ candle, I feel a total sense of comfort and happiness, while the candle offers zero resemblance to a typical "warm and cozy" fragrance. Now that I've given you my version of things, I think the best way to know exactly what it actually smells like, is to look at the fragrance notes below, or see the description here.
Emerald Water Hyacinth, bamboo and Mediterranean Fig interweave harmoniously with golden amber and musk.
Top Notes: lemon, bergamot, valencia orange zest
Mid Notes: emerald water hyacinth, bamboo, ylang ylang, mediterranean fig, cyclamen petals
Base Notes: musk, patchouli, golden amber, birch wood
Willow™ fragrance is one of our most expensive candles to make with an extremely high end base, just as you would find at the fine fragrance counter in any high end department store.
Willow™ started out, only in our Luxury Gift Candle and has become so popular that we expanded to more products.
