The Jewish observance of Purim – celebrated in Spring – is related to the narrative in the Book of Esther, the deliverance of the Jewish people from a murderous plot devised by the grand vizier of Persia. This is a scented portrait of the beautiful and brave heroine, evocative of her storied history. Esther was selected as queen of Persia from every virgin within the boundaries of the kingdom, all of whom were given a full year of beautification before they had to appear before the king for consideration. Thus she is perfumed with the precious luxuries of myrrh and a Persian spice blend, with additional dashes of cardamom, clove and black pepper, then lightened with touches of apricot and fresh green fig and a dollop of spring honey. To further honor the feast day of Purim, the traditions of which include giving gifts of food and donating to charities, we are donating the proceeds from sales of Esther to Feeding America, the nation's leading hunger-relief charity. Their mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engaging the country in the fight to end hunger.
