Indie Holiday: RL Linden Ironwood Perfume Oil
Scents and smells have such a special way of conjuring up memories, of taking us back to a place or time. Once in a great while, when the temperature and dew factor align, I will get a whiff of damp leaves and grass and be immediately transported to my morning runs in Hyde Park when I lived in London. When a scent is so true, so alive, it can bring tears of nostalgia to your eyes. I have a feeling that the ladies of RL Linden had a similar sentiment when they created a collection of fragrance oils inspired by their beloved Denver town. These were definitely created with heart, using only pure, plant-based, organic, raw and wildcrafted essential oils. Although Ironwood doesn’t conjure up a specific memory for me, it does make me want to build a fire, slip into a navajo sweater, and curl up with a juicy novel and spot of whisky. It’s intoxicating, warm and mysterious in the most delicious way . . . even Vogue Paris approves of Ironwood so there’s definitely something je ne sais quoi about it. In other words, you’ll take two.
