My inspirations for PEACE were a camping trip in a lush green forest in Hawaii, my visits to a hippie shop 20 years ago and vivid memories of my past. I melded these eclectic experiences into a fantasy perfume that is complex, deep and long-lasting.
Two years ago was hiking in the Valley of the Kings in Hawaii and enjoying the lush, rich and vibrant green. Indeed, this was the greenest and most luxuriant experience I have had while hiking, with moss, ferns and exotic flowers embedded throughout.
Surprisingly, I then smelled cannabis, and as it turned out there were a bunch of college students camping nearby, so I assumed I had found the source of this unmistakable aroma. It was combination of the sharp and quick cannabis and the verdant soft green that made my memory of this time indelible. PEACE is an attempt at capturing a fleeting note of cannabis, and behind it a lush green place that seemingly lasts forever.
Also, in my younger days I used to visit a cramped hippie shop in New Hope, PA that stocked every synthetic perfume oil you could think of, and it inspired me what not to include in PEACE. I have significantly upped the ante by using a host of complex natural ingredients. PEACE is definitely not the typical patchouli/musk hippie fragrance that others have produced using synthetics.
Note about cannabis: The cannabis sativa essential oil used in PEACE is non-hallucenogenic and legal to possess. It is a distilled product, and this process removes any hallucenogens. In any case, it would be "safe" to go to work wearing PEACE, as the strong cannabis top note dissipates within minutes after application.
