Over last summer, I read the Dream of the Red Chamber by Cao Xueqin – a family epic from 18th century China. The richness of the story drips off the page in vibrant color, revealing what life was like for giant families in mansions at that time and place. The spirit world, Taoism, and poetry are woven together with the mundane details of aristocratic living in Qing China. Time and again, the reader is privy to detailed descriptions of fantasy gardenscapes and otherworldy realms. Rare fruits, fine clothing, elegant bushes, and striking flowers are everywhere. A whole line of aromas could be made from this one volume (and there are four!). This is a quick poem about lychees spoken in the late spring by a pavilion in the garden set up to receive royalty and entertain the family.

Clean Beauty

From D.S. & DURGA:

Our products are 100% vegan, never tested on animals (other than the humans that work here!), and are paraben/phthalate free. You can find the ingredient panel for each product on our website on the product page. We use both natural and synthetic materials in all of our products and adhere to the latest safety and environmental regulations of the International Fragrance Research Association (IFRA). Naturals vs synthetics in perfumes is often misunderstood. Many of the strictest regulations in perfume come from natural materials! Naturals can also pose sustainability problems. Rest assured, we source our juice from the most ethical companies in the world who are at the forefront of material fragrance safety.
