Summer Constellations Collection
Aquila: The noble eagle who once carried Jupiter's thunderbolts now soars over the Summer Triangle. Majestic white sage with ropes of kelp, sea spray, vegan beeswax accord, and water from a cold mountain stream.
Cygnus: The Swan. Of all the myths surrounding Cygnus, our favorite is that he is vain Queen Cassiopeia's pampered pet. Soft, antique amber, rose petal syrup, rose-infused cupcakes, and fluffy white frosting.
Delphinus: This matchmaking dolphin convinced beautiful sea-nymph Amphitrite to marry Poseidon. Peach sorbet, sugared coconut milk, and a tiny drop of Key lime.
Draco: The bold dragon who stood sentry over Hera's golden apples in the garden of the Hesperides. Crisp apples, black amber resin, pineapple, black tea, and cognac absolute.
Lacerta: The Lizard. Ancient Greeks identified no constellation in this spot, but Native American Chumash astronomers saw a lizard, while Chinese astronomers recognized Tengshe, the flying dragon-snake. Cassis, strawberry, watermelon, blackcurrant, opium, white musk, and a hint of luminous green scales.
Lyra: Containing the bright star Vega, Lyra represents the enchanted lyre of gifted, tragic Orpheus. Smoky oudh with cool vanilla, caramelized apricot, golden woods, rich musk, and honeyed osmanthus.
Ophiuchus: The snake-handler holds the constellation Serpens in the night sky. Blackest vanilla, sweet cream, and patchouli wind around mandarin, tangerine, petitgrain, ginger, citron, and bright frankincense tears.
Piscis Australis: The Southern Fish gulps water flowing from the urn of Aquarius. A clean, airy handful of acacia blossoms, neroli, tuberose, asphodel, and native gardenia petals are scattered over banana fruit and white amber.
Ursa Major: Before she became a bear and was placed into the heavens, the Great Bear was the fierce and beautiful hunter, Callisto. A darkly feminine mix of feral black musk, sweet tobacco leaf, wild blackberries, clove bud, and a hint of ursine fur.
Ursa Minor: The Little Bear contains the North Star and is well beloved by navigating seafarers. A fluffy, delicate blend of summer peach, frosted lemon cake, white tea, velvety white fur accord, chrysanthemum stems, clover honey, and hints of wild-harvested fir and spruce.
