Product Description

Pele's Rest Day: After all the recent volcanic activity and lava fountains, now it's time for a nap. Please?

This is a confection meant for lazy sipping, or repeated sniffing-- the sips of the nose. Rich Kona coffee, sweetened coconut milk, lava-charred trees*, smoky clove bud and cinnamon leaf, pimento, and red musk. 

*I originally wrote this as "charred lava trees," but then my mom pointed out that the trees in Lava Tree Park (which I had been thinking of) are not actually preserved wood. The trees were wet when the lava came to envelop them, and so they held their shape longer as the lava climbed higher, coated them, and made molds of the trees that burned up inside the lava casts. Sadly, you can't go in Lava Tree Park anymore due to the huge @#$@ing fissures that developed after the recent earthquakes and general, erm, fissure activity... but you can see pictures, and I can tell you about it, because I went there several times before it was closed. They looked like skeletal burned trees, fairly short ones, dotting the black lava flow ground like a stunted, leafless orchard. I didn't notice that they were actually rock, because they looked like trees, and it seemed disrespectful to touch them, so I didn't.

  1. oh hi you smell tasty 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jan 2019

    This scent was a surprise squee with an order, and I decided I need a full bottle. A good scent for days with not much to do; I couldn't stop sniffing my wrists.

    In bottle: high-end dessert of the purposefully charred kind
    On wrist: definitely a charred sweetness (sweet like coconut milk or honey, not like sugar), and the musk shows up to mingle

    ~an hour: musk and sweetness have fully combined and there's still that hint of char; I keep wanting to lick my wrists

    ~3 hours: just starting to fade, but still sweet and charred and musky and so very tasty

    ~4.5 hours: almost gone, just lingering traces that smell like grape candy and the smoke from an extinguished candle


  2. Love love love! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2018

    I got this as an extra squee in my recent order, so I had no idea what to expect when I popped the top. COFFEE! This was enough to satisfy me until I took it for a walk later on. This is a massive fragrance with great throw and a long wear. In fact, I'm pretty sure I dabbed on a bit too much, as it was all I could smell for hours. Coffee is on the forefront, which gently fades into lovely char and incense.
