Black Rock is heavily inspired by my trips to Vancouver Island throughout my lifetime. All the little scents tucked away in the fragrance help tell that story.
The name Black Rock comes from the Volcanic rock that can be found across the Vancouver Island Coastline.
I would visit Vancouver Island each year to spend time with my Grandmother who used to live in the city of Nanaimo. Nanaimo itself is a waterfront town with one of the main Ferry ports on the island, and I wanted to capture a bit of that salty sea air which is present in this soap.
It's hard to ignore the beauty of Vancouver Island. It's heavily wooded with a healthy logging industry, endless trails, and hiking destinations. Not to mention, lots of rain! And with that, we've added some cedar, evergreen, driftwood, and wet forest floor to help capture this incredible terrain.
When I got a little older, every visit I had with my grandmother we would always stop at her favorite countryside pub in a rural town right outside of Nanaimo. This pub sits on acres of land, surrounded by trees, a beautiful garden, and a little pond which several swans call home. In the garden just outside the stained glass window of the pub, there are dozens of Rose bushes and a Rhododendron shrub with massive Pink flowers. Rhododendrons seem to be everywhere around BC Canada, but it was on this property right near those giant pink fragrant flowers that I would eventually marry my wife. Without even knowing this story, Sean had suggested we add this scent. It was a perfect fit.
I hope you enjoy the journey.
