Inspired by all Archaeologists. They dig and record the past so we can keep it for the future and unearth the stories of those long gone to show us the way forward in our uncertain world.

Fragrance: dark plum, peaches, wildflowers, leather books, and Madagascar vanilla.

Mood: Brush past ripened dark plums and blushed-pink peaches as you make your through the fields towards the site. Peonies and violet petals crushed underfoot as you grab your wheelbarrow and supplies, ready for a day of digging. Distressed leather of an old ink stained note book, musky site records, and earth covered artefacts spill across your desk you fill in those crumpled, mud-stained context sheets.
