This eco luxe, solid natural perfume tribute to the little winged alchemist is emblematic of the warm, musky scent of the bee hive. As a holistic bee keeper I've come to love this particular aroma and thought it would be the perfect theme for a perfume devoted to the bee. I used the theme as a launch point for the perfume, the scent of the hive is a combination of warm, sweet, musky notes with threads of beeswax, honey and with an earthy, vegetal undetone.
Hand made completely from nature with pure essential oils, c02 extracts and absolutes (Resins, wood, spice, mimosa, sweet clover absolute and beeswax absolute) with many of my own unique accords in a base of infused honey comb and organic golden jojoba oil.The synergy for To Bee contains 22 separate essences and four complex chords.

The tin contains approximately 8.7 grams, over 0.3 ounces, of natural perfume by weight and measures 1 and 3/8" x 1/2" deep. The round vessel is placed in a small colored pouch and arrives with three informational cards within a cardboard pillow box. If you prefer minimal packaging please leave me a note stating what you would like included.This is ready to give a a gift to yourself or someone special. An altar to your essential nature.

The name "To Bee" is a reference to who the perfume was made and 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.
