All about Emma

We are having so much fun with our Scents & Sensibility line of perfume oils!

"Emma," named for Emma Woodhouse in Jane Austen's novel of the same name, is one of our favorites.

It is said in Jane Austen's memoirs that when she initially set out to write Emma that she said, "I am going to take a heroine whom no-one but myself will much like."

"The real evils, indeed, of Emma's situation were the power of having rather too much her own way, and a disposition to think a little too well of herself."

Fortunately, she failed in that regard. Emma is one of literature's best-loved characters. Dear Emma is "handsome, clever, and rich" and a delightful read. We couldn't help wondering what Miss Woodhouse would dab on her wrists on her way to a lively party with friends. We decided it would have to be elegant yet light and fresh, like an exotic gardenia tropical flower blend. It reminds us of Spring!

We are glad to note that we are not the only Emma-lovers on Etsy. Here are a few more delectable Emma items on Etsy:
