The story of Båre
The protection and maintenance of the Great Bear Rainforest® remains one of the greatest environmental achievements in Canada's history. It is from this incredible and precious ecosystem that we source our rare and wonderful conifer tree essential oils. They are carefully selected, using only branches and needles so protecting the trees themselves.
The sustainable income-generation helps restore the balance and builds a positive connection between consumers and Indigenous Peoples of the Great Bear Rainforest®. Who, since colonization, have suffered many hardships - which really sucks.
I don't know whether you would describe Båre as a raw green aromatic, perhaps you could even push it into the chypre category, but I do know that Simon Constantine has created a little piece of magic.
I Scent You A Day
It became lots of different things, like a woodland fairytale. Firstly, there’s that sharp, piny conifer smell. It has a bit of gentleman’s fougère about it, what with the pine going on. The sharp edges are seamlessly sanded down into a warmer cedar accord, where an almost minty edge melts into a creamy base. At this point, I discerned a touch of posh, manly soap as freshness and warmth combine into an irresistible blend that I want my husband to wear forever.
