*Maker's note: One of my first scent memories is of being at my grandmother's house in Kentucky...she always grew the most beautiful heirloom roses (they were her mother's). They looked and felt like the most plush deep red velvet and would glitter with dew in the mornings or after a good rain. One day while playing outside, I decided that I needed (NEEDED) those roses all to myself and I started picking them with wild abandon...burying my face in them and throwing the petals into the air as I danced beneath them.
Grandma Billie came outside and was so shocked at what I'd done. She looked at me, then at the roses, then back at me incredulously. "Who picked my roses?" she asked. "The little boy across the street," I fibbed (we lived in the middle of nowhere). She took one more look at me and started chasing me around the house and caught me, swatting my behind pretty good for outright lying. She then said something that I'll never forget, "I'll give you anything that's mine because I love you. But never blame something you've done on others...and never lie to me. Ever."
I learned some invaluable lessons that day (never pick someone else's roses and never blame others for my own wrongdoings...and yeah, it was a truly memorable experience to dance under a shower of deep red rose petals). Roses will forever be tied to my memories of my grandmother and what a straight shooter she was.
This beauty is inspired by the unstoppable spirit of Mrs. Billie Jean Reese who loved all the wild and beautiful growing things.
