We didn't have a fragrance for the 6th or 7th chakras.
After meeting and working together on our Bearded Men video, Madison and I realized we have similar smell values and he suggested we co-create some scents for beard oils.
Formulating fragrances is a unique creative process I learned in the trenches of Urbaca, co-creating signature fragrances for the stylists, even for their dogs!
But when it comes to the Farm, I've been a one woman show and product development has been one of my closely held favorite things.
As much as I hate ever admitting I need help, I knew I was in stasis & needed to work with someone else to create these specific chakra fragrances. Little did I know so many people would be of assistance!
First Madison & I agreed on which oils to use, then we sniffed and mixed a lot. Once we created something we both liked, we tried the oil in a bunch of products, some failed--the smell didn't translate, products separated. Using natural materials is not an exact science!
Then we took our creations to the Portland International Rose Test Garden, bringing together two Portland beard clubs, Bridgetown Beard Club and Portland Beadsmen, for focus group testing. Like midwives, these bearded mid-husbands helped shape the fragrances with their feedback! Thank you gents!
Don't even ask how long it took to do the labels. We needed a design midwife for that one too. Thank you Kate!
Patience has not always been my strong point. What would have taken me less than a month rolling solo has taken 6 months with a partner.
I must admit, is has been more fun.
And sometimes, o sometimes, working together you make something wonderful...
