Sic itur ad astra…from the ancient Greeks to the present day, humans have looked up into the vastness of the sky and longed for a way to leave the bounds of Earth…and none were perhaps as inspiring in this endeavor as those who first ventured into outer space in the 1960s. From numerous discoveries, technological advances, and capturing the imagination of every generation to follow, the space programs of the US and USSR stand as the vanguards of discovery of the wonders of our solar system and beyond. With this fragrance we pay whimsical tribute to those astronauts who braved the unknown and traveled out of the blue and into the black. In this variation on the recipe for Moon Cakes, a Chinese/Vietnamese festival confection, dried apricot and figs are chopped together with a sweet-roasted medley of chestnuts, pecans and sesame in brown sugar syrup, swirled with vanilla and amber and lightened with just a touch of Freesia – a flower sacred to goddesses of the moon.


APRICOT ~ Love, love, love! Romance, passion, femininity.
FIG ~ Wisdom, fertility, love, luck, protection, aids restful sleep, divination. Feminine sexuality.
CHESTNUT ~ Amplifies male potency, love.
PECAN ~ Money, employment, mental acuity.
SESAME ~ Money, lust, life force.
BROWN SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing, wishes granted.
VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing.
AMBER ~ Fertility, creativity, love, luck, riches.

FREESIA ~ Innocence, chastity, charm.

Epic Explorations ~ It is perhaps a uniquely human characteristic to desire to traverse the limits of our place in space and time and enhance our accumulated knowledge…and whatever realms may exist elsewhere, you can be sure there will be those intrepid and curious individuals venturing forth to find out all they can. We salute and applaud those men and women who go above and beyond, inward and outbound, forward and back, with a special series of fragrances which we hope will also inspire our beloved customers to quest for discovery of all kinds and for the understanding gained by such endeavors which forever enhances civilization.
