Found in our Boston fragrance, tobacco leaf can be used in perfumes to add a gritty smell and feel to the scent. It provides the fragrance with a sweet, slightly smoky, rich aroma. There are a number of types of tobacco, but the New England variety is called shade tobacco, and is grown along the banks of the Connecticut River, which runs from the Long Island Sound, through Massachusetts, to New Hampshire. Cultivating the leaves of shade tobacco is much more labor intensive than its cousin types, and as a result is used as an outer wrapper for some of the world’s finest and rarest cigars. Much of tobacco’s popularity historically stems ironically from it’s purported healing powers, from relieving pain to curing cancer. During the 1600’s, tobacco was so popular that it was frequently used as money. It wasn’t until 1836 that New Englander Samuel Green revealed that tobacco is an insecticide, a poison, and can kill. Tobacco is the most grown plant in the world that is not used for food. Try our Boston scent here, and be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook!


Travel Shot Tuesday: Boston Public Gardens Posted on 10 Sep 12:05 , 0 comments

[caption id="attachment_2641" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Boston public gardens Boston public gardens[/caption] With the weather finally starting to cool down and school starting, the end of summer is truly upon us. With that, of course, comes the exciting newness of fall! We think that our Boston scent is a perfect addition to any fall fragrance collection. It's robust and smoky, with tobacco and leather notes reminiscent of the Harvard Club. So, of course, for this Travel Shot Tuesday we wanted to feature a photograph from Boston. We selected this gorgeous photo of the formal Public Gardens. This garden was actually America's first public park, and is a must-see site for anyone visiting Boston!
