Indie line Ava Luxe has launched Green Tara, a new perfume for women:
The goddess Tara is known in Tibetan Buddhism as the great liberator and compassionate savioress. Her name translated means "Star" or "She who ferries across". She has many aspects and in her green aspect she represents creativity, healing, and enlightened activity. Tara can be related to the Chinese goddess Quan Yin, a Bodhisattva who hears the cries of the world and offers peace, healing, and protection to her devotees. Green Tara's mantra is - Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha
Inspired by the Buddhist Goddess Tara in her Green creative aspect - This deeply mysterious and sensual fragrance is rooted in sandalwood and benzoin. Labdanum and Oude wood add an intriguing exotic touch of warmth. Patchouli and vetiver add a subtle grounding influence. Rose opens up the heart chakra and allows bliss to enter in envelop us. Geranium, lavender, lemongrass, and bergamot add a touch of lightness to a very base heavy fragrance. Chinese peppercorn and frankincense delight your senses with a subtle and delicious spiciness. A fragrance that is perfect for all energy work, creativity, and meditation.
Additional notes include amber, labdanum and lemon.
Ava Luxe Green Tara is available in Perfume Oil, Parfum Extrait and Eau de Parfum, $25-30. (via newsletter from Ava Luxe)
