To Bee is a 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 undertone.

FROM OUR FANS:

"Beautiful spicy and warm scent - I bought it to remind me of the wonderful fragrance of our own bee hive." ~ Linda

PERFUME DETAILS:

Ingredients: 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.

Did you know that a hive of honey bees is almost completely female? In her short lifetime she will hold many positions within her community including housekeeper; nursemaid, midwife, grocer, Queens attendant, construction worker, engineer, gymnast, undertaker; forager collecting pollen and nectar and in the end a guard.

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.
