THE GOOD EARTH
THE GOOD EARTH
THE GOOD EARTH, 2013
Composition of essences valued more than money or precious metals in history.
This scent is a vision of a utopic earth. Uplifting, green, strong: the lushness of a deep forest. The arrangement opens with a bright joyous motion, and is grounded with a full body of rare & precious resins.
Upwards motion; powerful joy. The strength of growing, of blooms, of ripening. Building and planting. The good motion of the earth.
Neon pollen greens, yellows, ochre. A trumpet golden spring exploding.
“The good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent, and all will be lost.”
- Charlie Chaplin, The Great Dictator 1942

"The sheer force of greenery in The Good Earth is miraculous. Bree has combined moss, galbanum, opoponax and resins into a soaring, piercing yelp from the forests in this perfume. The Good Earth manages to hold an earthy base with the brightest of sparkling green notes. I'm reminded of the snap of celery, champagne bubbles, and deeper at the bottom, raw clay, peat, even wine. It is a scent that's hard to classify in any family, but it steals the entire scene through sheer bombast and effervescence" - Fragrantica.com
