The maker of The Mauve describes it as “an alternate world free from disarray.” And given the calming effect of lavender, we have to agree. The tea leaves and damp wood call to mind a forest warming under the purply-pink tones of a foggy sunrise. And honestly, is there anything more relaxing than that? Fun fact: The full bottle contains a tiny silver bead as a nod to the maker’s handmade jewelry line. P.S. Perfumistas rejoice: The nose behind this line is Josh Meyer of Imaginary Authors. Notes include tea leaves, fresh lavender, and oak.
