So the worlds falling apart right? At least that's how it feels
But it may not be over just yet. Ok, it may feel hopeless but there’s more than a splutter of life in our beautiful planet left.
Oh yes, and we can still make choices to help. Take actions to heal. And do stuff to make a difference.
Let’s be honest we ain’t going to change the world or ‘save it’ on its own.
We just make perfume ffs
Maybe, just maybe, we can actually do some good - and help rebalance the relationship between humankind and the natural world at the same time.
Which is a hell of a lot more than most are doing!
We bridge the gap between the old world and a new world.
By standing in solidarity with indigenous communities and those protecting precious ecosystems.
By doing our bit to rectify climate breakdown and the preservation of the natural world. Our world.
And by sticking our middle finger up at the big guys - the cabal of vapid fashion houses and their indulgent luxury markets taking it all and giving little in return.
By hand-sourcing and hand-formulating pure essential oils and essences, not some cheap chemical goop churned out in sterile, soulless factories. We’ll go further. This is just the start.
But if we can reduce the stench of exploitation, mindless consumption, flagrant and disgusting over-indulgence and pointless opulence, then it’s a smart place to start.
So let’s unstink the world.
Shop ånd fragrances
ånd another thing
ånd is the brainchild and dream of renowned Perfumer and Nose, Simon Constantine.
Simon is perhaps best known for creating perfumes for over a decade for the global international beauty giant Lush Cosmetics. As head buyer and perfumer for Lush, Simon began Gorilla Perfumes in 2010, creating uninhibited and artistic fragrant creations for the brand and offered customers an antidote to mass marketed perfumes.
ånd takes this dream even further.
Best summed up in Simon’s own passionate words
The concept came from a feeling that the world was suffering fear and confusion and that it was time for some positive solutions to the problems we all face. Obviously perfume is a strange place to start but it’s my craft and the only way I could see to make a contribution”.
