"If a girl wants to be a legend, she should just go ahead and be one." - Calamity Jane
Maybe my favorite quote of all time, from the mouth of a whiskey-soaked, leather-clad, foul-mouthed ruffian. And also, by many accounts, she didn't bathe at all.
When some history buffs hear that we made a scent inspired by Calamity Jane, they worry. Justifiably. I don't think even whiskey-soaked, leather-clad, foul-mouthed ruffians wanted to smell like Calamity Jane... and yet, here she was, too legendary to let lie.
So when we were thinking of this company, and of the legends we pay tribute to, we knew we had to dedicate a special place in our collection to Calamity Jane.
Jack Crawford wrote, "She was simply a notorious character, dissolute and devilish, but possessed a generous streak which made her popular."
And that's what inspired her scent: a little spicy, a little sweet.
Calamity Jane smells like clove, orange, cinnamon, and a kick of whiskey (of course!). It's quickly growing in popularity as one of our most beloved scents, and no question why: It's great for both men and women, it's sweet with a kick.
Any of you who have ordered in the past week got a special sneak preview Calamity Jane Milled Soap (and anyone who orders now will get the same!), which is the only place that lovely little bar is available.
In the next week, we'll be adding Calamity Jane Milled Soap to the official line-up, but I wanted to add a little back-story to our infamously famous (or famously infamous!) scent soundtrack of Calamity Jane.
Do you love Calamity Jane? Have you tried it?
