When one creature reaches for the stars, we all do. On September 6, 2013, the launch of the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) propelled Rocket Frog into a new world.
Her time aloft with LADEE was all too brief. Her reach outward--who can say what she reached for? Help? Something familiar? Anything other than the whirling flame of a rocket launch? Reasonable things all. But reach she did, and we like to think that in Rocket Frog's outstretched arms is a metaphor for others who have found themselves thrust into difficult and dire circumstances they would not have chosen for themselves. Rocket Frog's flight was the flight of someone unaware, unqualified, and unprepared for greatness--and it was a mighty flight. We applaud her.
This is the cool green watery scent of a frog home. A calm base before the fireball.

So glad I got this as a bonus! I was reluctant to order it because of the "rocket" part, as smokey or machiney scents have not worked out for me. But nope, this is all frog, and what a frog it is!
Something in its intriguing background notes reminds me of the Large Hadron Collider, but this is quite different. Where the LHC is aggressively sterile and downright soapy (in a good way IMO), this is mellow and murky (in a very good way IMO!). But still a bit clean. Like a bog without the stench of mud and soil. Or plants in a freshwater aquarium.
I find it super relaxing. An unexpected new favorite.

This was a bonus squee with my party & it was, as Goldilocks would say, just right. It's fresh and bright without being too green, a subtle, lovely springtime scent.
