Pink Conch Perfume Fibonacci #1

Pink Conch
a Natural Perfume based on the Fibonacci Sequence

Think of a drop of sea water in the Atlantic, which has forever lain on the Primordial floor of this great Ocean. It decides to get into the stream of evolution so makes it way to the top, riding on the currents, then the waves, and finally to the summit where it lay, being kissed by the Sun for eons.

A great storm passes across the water and the Wind picks up this tiny drop. The funnel of air is fierce and almost rips the drop to shreds; but not quite. This tiny drop has a deep level of tenacity and fortitude. It whips through the vortex like a child down a slide, only a little worse for wear.

The drop comes to rest on a Pink Conch but only for a while. Shortly, it evaporates and is taken up, up, up, high into the clouds. The clouds travel half way around the world to Tibet, where it falls as snow. The snowflake ends up on a Sherpa’s jacket and is taken down the mountain to the little village where it turns into a water drop and is dropped onto the back of the yak, which is all tied up with the clothes of a well-known photographer, heading back to Vancouver, British Columbia.

The drop soaks in and becomes one with the shirt. The shirt is worn by the man during one of the hottest days of the summer. The drop evaporates into the air while the man fishes. A thunder storm boils overhead and the man runs for cover while the drop falls as rain into the mighty Fraser River. The river runs down to the blue Pacific Ocean.

On a beach in North Vancouver, Lynnie enters the scene and says, ‘those shells, sand, and sea weed will make a lovely “Ocean Tincture”. C’mon, kids, let’s gather some up.’ And so, the wee drop ends up as part of her perfume project to create a series of scents based on the Fibonacci Sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 and so on. This drop has been encoded with the information of all of time from the Primordial Ocean floor, to the great Sun, to the fierce Wind, to being a snowflake in Tibet, to being sooo close to a human, to swimming with the fishes, and rollin’ down the river, right back into the Ocean and into Lyn’s perfume. Enjoy.
The End

Or actually, it’s the beginning of another journey. Energy can never die; it only changes form.

And this is the form it took in my Fibonacci perfume with notes of

Ambergris, Seaweed absolute, Ocean Tincture,

Frangipani, Orris Root, Mimosa,

Fir Needle, Katafray, Pine

And others…

Imagery and aromas of smells of bracing air, wind-swept trees, wet-rocks, and ocean spray.

Nuances of water, ocean, rain, fast flowing rivers, slow lazy ponds,

with just the faintest hint of pine and fir needle in the background.

So far, it’s lasted 6 hours on my normal skin.

I’m very happy with this fragrance.

I hope you will be, too.

  1. What a fabulous journey and story of a magical little drop that winds up in your Pink Conch. To think of your perfume in that light brings a whole new dimension to the blend. What an exquisite creation it must be with tropical notes juxtaposed to the coniferous ones--and alongside your unique Ocean Tincture (which I've had the pleasure of smelling).

    If you're so inclined can you give us a little insight into the fibonacci sequence and how you were inspired to use the numbers in creating a perfume? It's just so fascinating I have to know more.
    Congratulations on the Pink Conch Launch.
    Love and admiration, Suzy

  2. Congratulations on the launch of another fabulous perfume, Lyn. I love the story. You can only be called "prolific". Love, Karen

  3. Thanks so much for your comments, Karen. It just pours out of me. I have many things in the works, just waiting for the right time.

    Love Lyn

  4. Hi, Suzy, thanks so much for your kind words. Yes, I'm writing an article about my process working with the Fibonacci Sequence as related to Natural Perfumery. I'll let you know when it's done.
    Love Lyn
