Hopi Botanicals

Perhaps it is because of my own much more modest experience of being a neo Beat Generation long-haired girl, but I always find myself irresistibly attracted to today’s free spirited Daria Halperin type characters. I’m dangerously addicted to image format blogs like Strange Eyes, The Nomadic Sun, Them Thangs, The Love Awareness Program and Hopi Botanicals. These documentary style websites dispense a constant stream of hits from the sixties and seventies, taking me on a trawl through the poetry, music, clothes, jewellery, art, photography and architecture inspired by those years. I admire the archiving skills of the persons behind some of the blogs listed above. They’ve nurtured and developed their little Internet ventures making it clear that when modern institutions are collapsing around us, people should get back in touch with ancient crafts. I’m not tempted to go all “peace and love” on you as I’m more inclined to believe in modern life but the aesthetics of those days can be of a rare and unexpected beauty notably when it comes to photography, clothes and jewellery. I’ve been following Emmelie Brunetti’s blog since it launched and was curious about her approach to fragrances, strikingly different to that of mass-market best-selling luxury names. For her, perfumes should be pure elemental evocations of flowers, herbs, trees and vegetables. The whole project is simply infused with sheer joy and love of the products, evocations of a place (California) and time, acknowledging her heritage. And her emotional engagement is not restricted to essential oils or solid scents, she has also designed the packaging that encapsulates these treasures. Unique vintage silver and turquoise Navajo pillboxes and small leather pouches. The soothing natural world.
For more information on where to buy the products, please contact Emmelie Brunetti: info@hopibotanicals.com

Great blog and great choice of product line! I've just learned about Hopi products recently and just fell in love with it.
Another thing, you seem to be admiring a lot writers but i would just like to say that i simply admire your writing as well.

I've admired her blog many times before, but your words have made me desperate to actually smell her fragrances. That's the amazing thing about writing, that it's possible to phrase words in such a way that they float out from the page or screen and snake into your nostrils with all the force of the actual scent.
