Fresh, soothing and a little wild
This deep green and primal perfume develops on your skin like a morning walk. A crisp opening of cut Grass and Galbanum leads us to the scent of forest air, sun-warmed benzoë resins and the humidity of a mossy forest floor with Oakmoss. Defend contains the same phytoncides that have the mind-expanding effect when we actually walk in the forest. Therefore being the perfect example of how transportive scent can be.
Defend: the regenerative power of trees and plants
Did you ever noticed the alluring scents emanating from the trees and plants around you in spring? These fragrances are not just for show, but rather complex defense mechanisms. The aromas speak to all the creatures of the forest, warning them for danger or asking them for support and protection. Like trees which release scents that signal their kin to prepare for an impending insect attack or for a herbivore roaming around. Defend is based on this intriguing plant intelligence, where each scent is tailored to specific signals. Trees take care of each other, utilizing their fragrances to protect the weaker ones and to call for help when needed.
Potential allergens, solely from natural ingredients: benzyl esters, eugenol, isoeugenol, Evernia Prunastri, limonene, linalol.
The Defend Practice
mindful forest walk
Find a quiet spot in a nearby park or forest where you can sit comfortably. Apply Defend gently to your pulse points. Take a few deep breaths and allow yourself to fully experience its refreshing scent. Now shift to the sensations in your body - this might be the warmth of the sun on your skin, the gentle rustling of leaves or the earthy scent of the soil beneath your feet.
When you're ready to return, take one last deep breath from your pulse points and carry the essence of the forest with you as a reminder of the beauty and serenity of the natural world.
When you’re feeling ready, take a slow walk through your park or forest, notice the colors, textures, and shapes of the plants and flowers, and take in the sounds of birds and other wildlife. As you continue walking, take deep breaths and allow the scent of Defend guide you deeper into the experience.
