The Story Behind Blue Lotus
We had formulated it as a Limited Edition, and were set to release it, while at the same time working on our new Signature Scents line. We had one spot open in the lineup and in a moment of total alignment, looked at each other... “Blue Lotus?” “Blue Lotus.” “Yep. Done.”
It is that good.
Since we released it, Blue Lotus has proved to be one of our most popular, effective, and long-wearing scents. When Erica happened upon the mixture of essential oils - Blue Lotus, Green Tea, and Plai, it was a sun-breaks-through-the-clouds moment. We loved all the scents individually. Blue Lotus on its own is heaven. But layering them together creates a light and complex scent that can truly be called “spa-like.” It’s cool, oceanic, and floral in a very gender neutral way. It’s one of those scents that you crave once you’ve smelled it.
Blue Lotus has a storied history in ancient Egypt as an aphrodisiac and mild hallucinogen (when ingested, in much larger quantities than it’s present in Pit Liquor!). In modern times, it’s known as a sleep aid and anxiety reliever. One of its chemical constituents is used to treat Parkinson’s disease, because it stimulates dopamine receptors in the brain. No wonder it smells so damn good.
