In honor of today's Solar Eclipse: Burning Daylight - Cedar, Sandalwood, and Musk

"Burning Daylight," our latest creation, is inspired by the profound and ethereal beauty of a solar eclipse—a celestial event that reminds us of the cyclical nature of light and darkness, and the ephemeral beauty of our universe.

The Solar Eclipse: A Moment Suspended in Time

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow over Earth and, for a brief moment, turning day into night. It's a rare event that unites people across the globe in anticipation and wonder, as daylight dims and the stars become visible in the afternoon sky. The temperature drops, animals become quiet, and for those few minutes, time seems to stand still.

This remarkable natural phenomenon served as the muse for Burning Daylight. The scent aims to encapsulate the anticipation, the momentary darkness, and the triumphant return of light—a reminder that darkness always passes, and the light returns, often more appreciated than before.

The Scent: Cedar, Sandalwood, and Musk

Burning Daylight is a carefully crafted blend of cedar, sandalwood, and musk, each chosen for their distinct qualities that together mirror the solar eclipse's journey.

  • Cedar represents the initial phase of the eclipse. Just as the moon begins its passage across the sun, cedar's strong, grounding aroma evokes the steadiness and anticipation of the approaching darkness. It's a scent that connects us to the earth, reminding us of our place within the universe's vastness.
  • Sandalwood comes into play as totality approaches. Its rich, creamy, and exotic scent captures the moment of awe and the profound beauty of darkness at midday. Sandalwood's complexity mirrors the multitude of emotions experienced during an eclipse, from awe to serenity.
  • Musk signifies the eclipse's end and the return of light. It's deep, warm, and enduring qualities reflect the resilience of life and the inevitability of the sun's return. Musk offers a sense of comfort and reassurance, a celebration of light's triumph over darkness.

A Reflection on the Cyclical Nature of Existence

Burning Daylight is a reflection on the cyclical nature of existence, the interplay of light and darkness, and the beauty of transitional moments. The solar eclipse reminds us that even in moments of darkness, light is on the horizon. Similarly,  Burning Daylight invites wearers to embrace change, to find beauty in the moment, and to remember that no matter how dark it gets, the darkness will always pass.

In creating Burning Daylight, we sought to encapsulate a cosmic event's emotional and sensory experience, providing a tangible connection to the ephemeral beauty of our universe. It's an invitation to pause, reflect, and appreciate the ever-changing world around us, with every application.
