Hala Lani - Hala: the Hawaiian aphrodisiac. The hala tree (pandanus tectorius) answered a multitude of needs for the ancient Hawaiians. Its leafy branches were used for thatching, leaves (lau) were weaved into mats, hats, sandals, and baskets. Kapa makers dipped the bristly ends of dried hala fruits into dye, using them to paint and stamp patterns into their bark cloth. Even lovers found uses for hala. When foraging for plants to kindle romance, the love-struck would anoint their bodies with the sweet-scented yellow pollen considered an aphrodisiac from the male Hala flower.
Hala trees are dioecious, either male or female. Female trees produce large, round fruits that look like pineapples, but are actually clusters of fruitlets. When ripe, they turn vivid orange, yellow, or red. Lei makers would string them together to create colorful necklaces. Those made with red hala fruit stared in the Hawaiian proverb "A pala ka hala, ‘ula ka ‘a‘i," meaning “When the hala is ripe, necks are red” which is a glorious innuendo!
Notes: Pandan and Ti leaves, ripe hala fruit nectar, tuberose, honeybush extract, yellow flower pollen, pale musk, ebony wood, Tahitian vanilla.

The Damask Haus process:
Our perfumes are handcrafted and made in small batches with premium ingredients. Each item is made to order to maximize freshness and quality. Each unique perfume is composed of hand blended fragrance notes and may contain essential oils, aroma-molecules, naturals, absolutes and/or co² extracts.
Our oils are designed to leave your skin moisturized and beautifully scented. The unscented carrier oil is absorbed into the skin leaving only the essence of the scent behind to be enjoyed for hours. Perfume oils differ from most brand name perfumes because they lack chemicals (fixatives/stabilizers) and alcohol typically found in store bought bottles. These oil scents often last longer and remain closer to the wearer as opposed to alcohol based perfumes that have more throw.

A lightly sweet floral nectar scent, which has become a favorite for me.
My partner's response to this one was a suprised "Oh! That's really nice!".
This is sooo good. I am not a fruity floral girl, or so I thought. Damask Haus, and this scent in particular, changed my mind completely. This is so beautiful and so well blended. It’s a hint of sweet without being too sweet. A hint of floral without being overpowering. It’s heavenly. My skin eats it up so I need to reapply but I’ll do so gladly. So if fruity slightly florals are NOT your thing, try this and you will not be sorry!
(On me edp lasts slightly longer but the oil seems to have more depth so I’m going in a larger size for the oil.)
