When formulating this scent I studied the entire history of Grey Gardens, and consider this blend an aromatic tribute to all the owners of the estate, past & present:
In honor of the original owner Anne Hill, the woman who built and designed the gardens based on a theme of all grey plants - sage, lavender, artemisias and rosemary.
For Big & Little Edie Beale, the stars of the film Grey Gardens - Rose & Catnip, with honey and butter in honor of their love of ice cream. Roses were growing wild everywhere & took over the Grey Gardens site in the 70's, many visitors commented on the strong scent of roses on the site. And the reason for the catnip should be obvious to everyone familiar with the Edies & their love of cats.
For the current owner - White Cedar in honor of the many Japanese Hinoki trees she has planted on the property.
To create this scent I hand distilled in copper 100% Pure home grown organic catnip flowers and added the all natural scents, plus a naturally derived emulsifier. The bottle contains 2 ounces in amber tinted plastic with a black mister cap top. You can use this scent as a perfume and/ or environmental spray.
I am so overjoyed to be able to create these unique regional one of a kind products from plants grown and wildcrafted right here in the Adirondacks of NY. Of course our growing season is quite short here, and I am only able to produce these waters for a short time frame each year, so this is a VERY limited edition product; get it while you can!
