"Love is a burnin' thing,
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire". -Johnny Cash (lyrics by June Carter 1963)
Jessica Ring of Ring Botanicals
Jessica Ring of Ring Botanicals seems to have a sort of geo-mancy to add to the impressive list of talents the grower, distiller and perfumer showcases at Ring Botanicals including the leather homage to the history of our local Pacific Northwest in Lewis & Clark, an amber dedicated to Oregon containing another of her self-grown raw materials- she shows how far reaching her alchemy is with Ring of Fire.
Johnny Cash Ring of Fire (song cowritten by June Carter Cash 1963)
Referencing the horse-shoe shaped area of the Pacific Ocean where 75% of the world's volcanoes are located, Ring of Fire is an obvious concentration of dormant possibility. Pele, one would imagine, might not be so pleased as male sacrifice makes a comeback where Ring of Fire is worn. Applying the aesthetics and wisdom of indigenous materials, Ring of Fire imparts passionate potential and a primal joy from the volcanic area, Ring of Fire explodes jasmine as ginger and ishpink sparks are palatable. Chocolate from the Yucatan Peninsula, tinctured and aged nibs brought back from Jessica's travels in the region and a berry-like note slowly roll throughout. Fossil amber and Shamama attar (also known as Hina) bring smoke and warning within a golden hued base.

Altogether something celebratory and easily given to the ecstatic. Much more sexy than I would have imagined and evolving in the more than average wear time.
Johnny Cash- Eating cake 1971
Gourmand herbs and spices, somewhat familiar, the majority of the raw materials are edible- and Ring of Fire becomes a craving. Again I wonder about the dangers of owning this because I truly want to eat it… or the wearer.
Notes: jasmine, ishpink (South American evergreen with cinnamon qualities), wild ginger, sweet leaf tobacco, fossil amber, cocoa, maca, red frankincense, wild orange, rock rose, shamama attar, nagarmotha
