Chaparral at Scent Hive

My latest hive, the SBB2, short for Squirrel Box Bees number 2 gather their pollen and nectar from the hillside wildflowers and brush of the Santa Monica Mountains. This clustering of plants is known as the chaparral biome.

Trish at Scent Hive today has a review of Chaparral® in both the liquid and solid format as well as her impression of the new Tangent. Fly on over and gather some nectar, leave a comment and perhaps win a sample of Chaparral® solid and liquid. In celebration I offer you a giveaway for a .25 gram sample of the new Tangent botanical organic perfume.

  1. Dear Roxana, I was just looking at Tangent wondering how it would smell compared to Chaparral. Then you graciously offer and giveaway with Trish. I hurried over to post a comment. I just wanted to say thank you for the lime recipe post earlier this summer. I tried it and my tincture turned out beautiful and now I have my vanilla basking in some jojoba too. Also I fell in love with the sample of Terrestre you sent. It is so creamy and warm. Just beautiful. Thank you again. Angie FunkPS. Excited to see Cimbalom liquid will be released soon.

  2. Thank you for another Giveaway, Roxana. Sounds divine! I follow your blog. Happy Michelmas!<3 Peg from SMcwestpost'at'aol'dot'com
