Capri 1966: when movie stars married European royalty and skipped off to the Amalfi Coast to escape the paparazzi.

The concept behind this blend is an old snapshot I keep on my desk of Grace Kelly stepping off a sailboat in the harbor at Capri wearing simple linen pants and espadrilles, her windblown hair only partially tied back in a plain cotton scarf. There is something in this picture that I identify with — the low-maintenance sporty chic of her outfit, the simple perfection of the location — somehow some piece of my own soul is defined by this image.

When I began formulating this unisex scent collection, I wanted to find the perfect scent to go with this image. I wanted to smell the Mediterranean, the sunshine, the salt, the sweetness of the local blossoms, the sense of water and wind — and the simplicity of a fresh-squeezed glass of organic juice straight from the orange tree outside my kitchen window.

I’ve always been a bit of a tomboy, never fully comfortable glammed up in a lot of make up and high heels. Most perfumes strike me as a similarly false note, a costume I can’t quite pull off. So I needed this unisex floral scent to be something I would personally consider to be completely wearable. I think I’ve achieved that. Today I release it to the wind — my perfect Tomboy Floral, with scents of Orange Blossom, Fresh Orange Juice, Bergamot, Lemon, Neroli, Lavender, Sage, and Mediterranean Cypress, which somehow evokes salt and sea and sky.

Created only from 100% natural essential oils and other plant essences in a base of organic grape alcohol. Contains no animal-sourced scents or synthetics.

Available in 1 ounce (30 ml) or 2 ounces (60 ml)
