Zelda is a special fragrance, named in memory of a cherished pet of mine. Zelda was a blue Australian Cattle Dog that lit up my life and I wanted to honour her in my own way. She was born and raised in the Yarra Valley of Victoria, Australia, and made her way into my life in Glasgow in her later years. She loved swimming, getting muddy, stealing blueberries and tomatoes out of my garden (whether they were ready to eat or not!), counter surfing, bin raiding, bossing her feline and canine brothers around, chasing the ball, extracting squeakers from toys and requesting affection through brute force. She was the most wonderful dog, my best friend and constant companion. This fragrance was made as a way for me to remember her by and to share my feelings about her with the world.
The scent is inspired by the smell of the rainforests of Mount Dandenong in the springtime, when the rains and blooming trees come together to produce this incredible effect of sweet, almost ambery and vanillic floral supported by green and aquatic notes. To add even more of Zelda into the fragrance, I added a little earthy patchouli for her love of mud, fresh blueberry for her garden-raiding hobby and blue musk for her blue fur. Overall the effect is something lively and sweet, just like her.
A portion of the proceeds from this scent will be donated to The Woodland Trust, a UK organization that seeks to protect, re-establish and restore native woodlands in Britain, as well as make them accessible for everyone to enjoy. Zelda loved exploring forests, so it seemed right to dedicate her scent to protecting places she loved. :)

I got a sample of this scent, and it is gorgeous. One of my absolute favorites of the samples I got and it’s definitely on my list for full sizes. I didn’t know the story behind it when I got it, but what a beautiful tribute
