Our Summer Line has FINALLY arrived! While recuperating from shoulder surgery I had LOTS of time to think about what summer time meant to me. And the fondest of my summer memories are the times spent as a child with my Grandparents. Or sitting around a bonfire on the beach with friends, passing the Boone's Farm Strawberry Wine. I hope this release helps bring back some of your fondest summer memories and maybe even a story or two you can share.
Our Summer Release will go LIVE on Friday, June 15th at 5:00 pm PST.
We thank all of the wonderful, patient, supportive members of Valhalla Clan. We love and appreciate you all more than words can express.
Bergamot & Tarragon -
A spectacular spa-like fragrance with top notes of tarragon leaves, grapefruit, and lime; followed by middle notes of
bergamot and jasmine; well-rounded with base notes of oak moss and bamboo.
Beware the Kraken -
Mentioned in the Icelandic Sagas and believed in Scandinavian mythology to be a giant squid the size of an island capable
of causing large enough whirlpools as to swallow entire ships. We pay homage to those lives lost with this uniquely fresh,
green and almost a little kelp-y blend of Bergamot, Orchid, Jasmine and Violet with supporting notes of Ozone (air),
Sandalwood, Musk and of course, Moss. Beware the monsters that lurk in the dark. Whether in be the ocean, a lake or the woods. We all have a scary summer story to tell around the fire.
Gimme S'More Lovin'- VO
Does it get any better than summer nights at the beach? Sitting around the bonfire, the smell of salty sea air, burning
driftwood, and roasting marshmallows. Laughing at your friends trying to eat gooey smores without making a mess. And the
sangria flowing freely. Livin', Laughin', Lovin'
Gone Fishin'- VO
Summer days, six years old, camping in the woods at Lake Cachuma. Playing leap frog with the cousins, roasting
marshmallows around the fire, fishing with Grandpa as the smoke from his pipe drifts along the breeze mirroring the lazy
flow of the lakes current.
Last Summer (AKA Suddenly Last Summer) -
Hauntingly seductive with notes of deep dark cherry, creme anglaise, exotic, earthy sandalwood, sensual musk and warm
vanilla. "Forever I loved you...Forever it seemed...Then suddenly..."
Lime Sugar Sorbet –
Beautiful green layers of fresh squeezed limes and sweet notes of sugary syrup entangled around a white background of
delicate white musk and petite white flowers.
No Worries -
Lavender and sage chillax with peppermint and star anise to create this totally laid back blend that quiets the mind and
invigorates the spirit. "Done with all the stressing...You won't hear me sing the blues...I'll rise above it all..."
Original Sin -
Fresh crisp fruit of apple and peach highlight a dew rose and water lily heart as white cedar, vetiver, sandalwood and musk
Pickin' Berries - VO
Sneaking away with Grandma on a hot July day to pick berries was a summer tradition. Grandma was a forager. If there
were berries to be foraged, she would find them. And then there was cobbler to be made! This blend encompasses that
memory so well with sweet strawberries left to go wild from a long abandoned homestead. Tart, sun ripened raspberries and
dark purple wild blackberries native to Oregon. Add a smidge of vanilla sugar and cake batter to top it off.
Sand Dunes & Sweetgrass - VO
Warm sand between your toes, the salty smell of the water as it rushes the shores and goes back out again. Tall sedge
grasses. It's a smell that's difficult to describe but if you've ever walked, climbed, or ran down the coastal sand dunes as a
kid or an adult, then you know what we're talking about. It's warm, earthy, salty, slightly musky from the sun heating the
grasses. This is bliss in a bottle!
Sparkling Amber - VO
Lazy summer mornings at the beach house snuggled in white cotton sheets with a lover...amber and musk still linger in the
air...sipping Ruby Red Grapefruit Mimosas, while sharing peaches and mangoes sprinkled with glistening sugar.
Umbrella Drink - VO
Summer time fruity drinks are the BEST! Am I right?! Bananas and juicy grapefruit, middle notes of kiwi and watermelon,
and a fizzy splash of tonic water. Topped with a cherry and an umbrella. Grab two! One for each hand!
