This scent has depths. A story. Like you.

This scent has depths. A story. Like you.

This collaboration between Spruce & Wild Coast Perfumery is our representation of a love affair ending, while still celebrating the beauty of the time offered. The thought bubble for this scent stemmed from an evening romance, and became the poem first to inspire Wild Coast Perfumery. With a few back and forth visits and slight tweaks, Laurie created this essence seemingly effortlessly. Following the story, the poem, and the product, we then needed a still photo capture. 
What an artistic journey, involving so many.

The slight mist of midnight offered a bouquet of wild

That magical essence of winter turning to spring

And I knew, as the seasons changed

So would we

This scent has depths. A story. Like you.

Then all at once, it happened.

That same feeling 

as tipping onto a wave—


Nervous to loose balance 

But smiling

Who's doing a polar bear swim this year?

Who's doing a polar bear swim this year?

The ocean made her come alive

As if to wake all of her cells at once

Anything that didn’t matter drifted away

To be left only with a deep sense of peace

That expanding feeling from the depths of her heart

That unmeasurable moment where she feels like she’s 

exactly where she needs to be—

She seeks light in the shadows

But never fears the dark—
