AAMAN - Worldly / Poetic / Sparkling

The desert and the train.. black and smoky, carrying you deep into silken lands;  a redolent fusion of honey and spice with an evocatively menacing trace of black tea. 

In 2013, I was invited by my old friend, Patch Adams.. (remember the movie starring Robin Williams?) to go to Jordan on a humanitarian clowning trip;  to bring a giggle, a smile and a whole lotta love to the Syrian refugees.  This one was inspired by my love for them and the people of Jordan.. Amman.  A piece of my heart will always be there. 

In the middle of the forehead, is the 6th chakra - visioning, meditative, all seeing - for me, Amman is this.

cinnamon bark, sandalwood, black pepper, vetiver, ylang ylang, vanilla absolute, carnation absolute.

Previously known as Parfum 6, reaching higher up the chakras now at the third eye, the visionary all seeing meditative chakra.

(a proprietary blend of genuinely distilled authentic essential oils in organic jojoba. Italian glass bottle with roll on applicator) You may see some 'settling' on the bottom of the bottle, not to worry...sometimes the heavier oils need a shake.  Nature is interactive!

All CCB oils are pesticide, herbicide free, wildcrafted, organic, vegan and consciously sourced.

URDU - mouldering / Resilient / Majestic

Pungent midnight pepper and spiralling peat smoke, illuminating the legendary nuances of Indian grasses.  

vetiver, black pepper, frankincense

..a proprietary blend of genuinely distilled authentic essential oils
in organic jojoba. Italian glass bottle with roll on.  Previously known as Parfum 1...those in the know remember it being Root Chakra, way back when.  Deeply grounding;  it puts your feet firmly on the terra firma.  

The newer colourful labels were inspired by the countries or towns the oils come from.  Urdu is a Turkish word meaning 'camp' and the language of Pakistan and India.  Camping with oils, I say!!

___

PARIS - Musing / Verdant / Mythical

Vibrant, green bittersweet floral sitting on top of mown hay, with a crush of soil scraped from remembrance of the roots of an old oak.  

Previously known as Parfum 2.  Created with the  juicy, creative second chakra in mind, CCB's Paris is a hormone balancing act.  Its a wee spritely and citrusy, mildly sweet and just like that famous city..sexy.  Previously known as Parfum 2.  

bergamot, clary sage, rose geranium, tangerine, ylang ylang, 
rosewood, oakmoss

..a proprietary blend of genuinely distilled authentic essential oils in organic jojoba. Italian glass bottle with roll on applicator.

LYON - Enthralling / Dynamic / Ethereal

A splash of fresh green citrus warmed by the visceral rasping of French cedar and Brazilian wood, in a gauze like finish of bay rum.

Lyon, that wonder of French cities is our 3rd chakra oil, a sparkly fresh scent for that emotional powerhouse, the solar plexus.  Previously known as Parfum 3.  Aaaand, it is the same scent as CCB Beard Oil!!  So darn popular with those not sporting said beard, we just had to make it in a putitwhereveryoulike stronger version.  Yum.  All gender.

lime, Atlantic cedar, French cedar, black pepper, vetiver, rosewood, bay rum, vanilla absolute.

JAIPUR - Velvety / Luminous / Stirring

The cobbled streets of Jaipur – baskets of brightly, coloured spices, rumbling wagons laden with honeyed blossoms; their scents melding into the woody sweat of ancient timbers.  

My travelling jag when I was 18, took me through most of Europe, north Africa and southern Africa;  I made it as far east as Turkey.  In 2010, I finally made it to India.  It is impossible to describe this country.  In the language of scent... this is my India. 

Fifth chakra, the throat...language, speaking, singing and chanting..

patchouli, rosewood, ylang ylang, jasmine absolute, tuberose, lemon

___

VERONA - Radiant / Enlightening / Graceful

Warm, round blood orange, where the peeled sparkling fruit cuts a swath through hypnotic jasmine, inspiring depth to its sumptuous amber note.  

Italy is a scrumptious citrus bite of delight and provides the world with a myriad of essential oils.  Blood orange is one of those;  it takes orange up a notch or more.. And so then, it simply had to have an affair with the likes of jasmine.  Verona, yes, Romeo and Juliet, that's right, in Verona. 

Parfum 7, the chakra where the crown sits and where our physical self connects to the gods.

blood orange, sweet orange, jasmine absolute, myrrh

___

LHASA - Warm / Provocative / Untamed

What we’re made of, when we strip it all away – love – spicy, soft, resilient, fresh, exciting;  in our favourite place.  

In 2003, my dream of going to Tibet almost materialized.  A humanitarian clown trip stopped by the outbreak of SARS keeps it a dream, still.  For now, I envision it here in this fragrance, Lhasa;  the city that hovers in the clouds at the top of the world in the most holy of places, Tibet.  

mandarin, tangerine, ylang ylang, patchouli, ginger, cardamom, neroli (orange blossom)
