Announcement    Hello & welcome to Hazel Fern Scents - An Optical and Olfactory Banquet.

Named for my great-grandmother and grandmother, Hazel Fern Scents is inspired by sweet & fleeting moments, days of old, the comfort of hearth and home, strong women, & the natural world all around us.

The line of artisan perfumes are all blended by hand using essential oils and phthalate free fragrances. They are heavily inspired by the Victorian and Edwardian era, memory, and ancestors.

A few of my perfumes have been featured as solid perfumes in lockets made by Jessica Galbreth of The Vintage Angel & The Pickled Posey.

Hazel Fern Scents products are available at the Michigan Renaissance Festival every season (mid-August to early October yearly) in Johna's shop #767.

In late April of 2016 I decided to create this shop just for Hazel Fern. Up until then Hazel Fern Scents was a part of my first Etsy shop, HootsGallery.

About HazelFernScents

Sales 1,382
On Etsy since 2016

An Optical and Olfactory Banquet.

Hazel Fern Scents is a part of The Art of Johna Gibson Bowman - Hoot's Gallery and came to life when I began making candles, wax melts, and soap for family and friends more than ten years ago. At first it was a hobby driven by my desire to make and give gifts that were evocative of nostalgic joyful memories. One of my first scents was Helen's Kitchen - a spiced apple pie and cream fragrance inspired by my aunt's descriptions of my grandmother's apple pies. As demand for the wax products and soap grew, I expanded the line to include artisan perfumes, incense, & lip balm.

I think of a lot of my scents as Victorian Boho and Edwardian in nature. Capturing the essence of a time, memory, or person is a huge motivation in my work. Scent is my primary memory trigger and I can be transported to many places in time simply by catching the faintest wisp of fragrance. Most of my fragrances are blended with this in mind and I try to capture the essence of memory or time in wax or oil. For instance, my fragrance December takes me back to the Christmases of my childhood. I would lay beneath the Christmas tree and inhale the fragrance my mom's vintage scented sachet ornaments.

In 2011 when I purchased a shop at the Michigan Renaissance Festival, Hazel Fern grew by leaps and bounds. Since then I have released several hand-blended perfume oils, incense, lip balm, and continue to mix and create every day.

Thank you!
