One Seed Fragrance Notes and Ingredients

One Seed is committed to making  perfumes using materials that are pure, botanical and cruelty-free. Using all-natural ingredients with at least 80% organic content, they are gentle on both the skin and the environment - as they should be. 

From blends that are woody to floral, fresh to oriental, they’ve developed a range of nuanced fragrances that appeal to individual scent preferences.  

These natural fragrances have the ability to create complex scent profiles that change in depth and character when in contact with skin. This means that when you wear a ONE SEED perfume, you are experiencing a version of that fragrance that is completely individual to you, and we think that’s pretty special.

Bohemia - Both broody & playful; a bitter-sweet composition of alluring amber, smoked tea & dark chocolate set against luscious blood orange & vanilla tones, with a sensual sweet floral heart. Bohemia is for the gypsy, the rogue, the traveller and the free-thinker.

Notes: blood orange, pink grapefruit, jasmine, apricot, rose, cocoa, tonka, black tea, amber accord, vanilla.  You may also detect: smoke, spice

Devotion - a vintage-inspired fragrance featuring a classic soft floral heart of rose, iris and geranium, accented with a sweet and spicy top note and a gourmand-musky drydown. Devotion is an ode to nostalgia, to the beautiful aromas of childhood and youth, of nurturing and comfort and a free spirit. It is inspired by the things we treasure the most.

Notes: blood orange, black pepper, cardamom, iris, rose, ylang ylang, geranium, cocoa, amber, vanilla. You may also detect: cinnamon, black tea

Freedom - A wonderful blend of refreshing pink grapefruit and spiced pink peppercorn opening to a heart of Bulgarian and Moroccan rose, accented by a warming natural musk, ambrette seed. Freedom is inspired by the beauty found in simple things, and the light in your heart when you believe than anything is possible.

Notes: pink grapefruit, palmarosa, rosewood, magnolia, rose, peppercorn, Australian sandalwood, ambrette seed, benzoin. You may also detect: gardenia

Hope - One Seed's interpretation of a classic eau de cologne. A blend of creamy Australian sandalwood, cedar and dewy oakmoss, with a subtle undertone of green lavender and sunny citrus accents. Hope is inspired by the belief that all good things are worth waiting for.

Notes: bergamot, lime, cedarwood, lavender, Australian sandalwood, oakmoss, ambrette seed, tonka. You may also detect: lemon, grasses

Seeker - Seeker is a youthful scent created for the young and the young at heart. It is for endless adventures, for seeking truth in all things. Featuring fresh greens and delicate mossy notes entwined with milky coconut, vanilla and the scent of salt on damp skin.

Notes: coriander, coconut, vanilla, roasted basmati rice, oakmoss, ambrette seed. You may also detect: sea salt

Dreamer - A syrupy scent; burnt fig and heartwarming ginger. Orange blossoms unfurl their petals towards the sky, the quiet hours of morn, full of reverie. Almost edible, one for the gourmands. Round, dewy stone fruits in the height of summer. Sweet tangerine dreams.

Notes: Orange blossom, Ginger, Clary sage, Tangerine, Mimosa, Stone fruits, Pink pepper, Burnt fig

Synphony - A chorus in the fields, an orchestra of flowers. A crescendo of sweet spices, from places far and long remembered. Dappled sunlight on pale skin and the inhalation of warm mossy breeze. Life is in the air beneath the jasmine vine. The song of spring.

Notes: Jasmine, Cardamom, Oakmoss, Vetiver, Green mandarin

4 Father's Day gift ideas

In my experience, dads can be hard to shop for. Either their hobbies are so specific that you're terrified of getting the wrong particular 'thing', or they never know what they want... until they suddenly do and buy it for themselves straight away instead of asking for it. I'm sure there are some dads better at asking for presents than others but if your dad is anything like mine, perhaps this list will help you out. 

 

1. Socks

Yes, I'm going there. Socks are perhaps the most cliched Father's Day present, but for good reason. Our Conscious Step socks are comfortable, come in fun patterns and each design supports a different cause, which is great and also means that you can tailor the socks to suit your dad. My dad is a teacher and values education, so last year he got a pair of Conscious Step socks that give books to schools in developing countries. Your dad might prefer to plant trees, donate to HIV research or even feed children!

 

2. Good luggage

Does your dad travel much? Does his carry-on luggage look a bit worn? The Great Ocean Road Bag is the perfect bag for a weekend away. It's handmade in Melbourne from ethically sourced and locally tanned cow hide and is SUPER sturdy. We've only got one of these bags left in store so please contact us if we can put it aside for you. 

 

3. Skincare

Does your dad look after his skin? Our Valor skincare is nourishing, fuss-free and manly enough to get dads on board. The Organic Castile Face and Body wash (only available in store) is a refreshing all-rounder in the shower and is made using certified organic Australian olive oil, cold pressed coconut, sunflower and avocado oils. Leave your dad smelling of sweet fennel, lime, clove leaf and patchouli. We also have some Peppermint Scrub Worker's Soap and my personal favourite, the Byron Spice Face and Body Soap, which is ultra-moisturising and smells like chai tea. Yum!

 

4. Chocolate

Imaged soured from Bahen and Co.

Does your dad like chocolate? Chocolate is the perfect treat to bump up a gift and our Bahen and Co. chocolates are truly special. Bahen and Co. chocolates are stone ground in small batches, cold and slow using vintage machinery. Founder Josh Bahen is a former winemaker and it shows in his product, with great attention given to the origin and flavour profile of cacao. The result? Simply made yet complex, delicious dark chocolate with nuanced flavour profiles.

 

We hope we've helped you a bit on your Father's Day present hunt. Shoot us an email shop@ecohaven.com.au if you need any more gift guidance. Best of luck!

Show Your Mum Some Love

Your mum wants you to read this.

Dust off the waffle iron, pick some flowers and show your mum some love, Mother’s Day is almost here! We’ve put together some ecoHaven gift ideas to make this day extra special for your mum. 

 

Myrtle and Moss Hand Cream

My mum loves hand cream (she makes sure to sample the shop’s testers whenever she visits 😉) but a nice hand cream is something that she won’t buy for herself because she sees it more as a luxury rather than an essential, making it the perfect gift. We have some beautifully scented hand creams by Myrtle and Moss, as well as a Myrtle and Moss hand cream and soy candle duo pack, which is so new that it isn't even online yet.

 

Ceramics

We have a gorgeous collection of vases, votives and tiny tea cups made by local ceramicist Emma Targett. Emma makes beautiful ceramics, each piece is hand-thrown and each piece is unique. If you're wondering what to get your mum, maybe some locally made ceramics is the way to go? Our ceramics are only sold in store but please get in contact if you can't make it to Hobart and we'll do our best to help you out.

 

Scarves and wraps

Buying clothes for mum (or anyone else) can be a bit daunting and it's easy to misjudge the size of clothing or how it will fit. A scarf, snood, poncho or wrap is personal enough - you can buy something in that perfect texture, colour, fabric, style and softness - but takes the guess work out of size because they fit everyone. We have a really lovely collection of scarves and wraps, perfect to keep mum cosy in the cooler months ahead.

 

If you are a mum, feel free to send your children or spouse a little hint and send them our way for some wonderful gifts. Confused husbands and are our speciality.

How to celebrate Galentine’s Day

You’ve heard of Valentine’s Day, but have you heard of Galentine’s Day? It’s the day before Valentine’s Day and it’s a day to celebrate your gal pals. Ladies celebrating ladies. EcoHaven is a 100% ladies crew at the moment, which is why we 100% endorse this fictional yet fabulous celebration. Never celebrated Galantine’s Day before? That’s okay, we’re here to show you how. 

Galentine’s Day is all about showing the women in your life that you care. Call your mum, bake something yummy for your gal pals, write your sister a card, host a movie night, organise a picnic or have brunch with your friends. If you’re a ‘go big or go home’ sort of person, you could host a party for your mum, gran, sisters and lady friends complete with cocktails, food, music and frivolity, but it can be just as lovely doing something small.

 If you’d like to indulge your fabulous gal pals a little more this year, we have a lovely collection of Myrtle and Moss, Leif and Mokosh skincare in store and online, with local, handmade jewellery by Little Lari and Ruth Evenhuis Designs too. 

However you choose to celebrate this year’s Galentine’s Day, we hope you get to have a laugh and a hug with your favourite ladies. Happy Galentine’s Day everyone!

Christmas at EcoHaven - a values based gift guide

We value kindness to the earth and to humanity, which is why we love providing ethical and sustainable products. This Christmas we thought we’d give you some gift ideas that align to different values that you (or the person you’re buying for) support.

If you value the environmental and health benefits of choosing organic, you might want to take a look at our organic options. Our Organic Soybean Shirt is super soft, has a beautiful drape and it’s texture is like nothing else (read more about soy fibre here). We also have organic cotton pieces by Kowtow and our own organic cotton t shirts (coming online soon, now in store) as part of our new ecoHaven Essentials range.

Our collection of Mokosh skincare is so SO good for your skin and is also certified organic.

 

If you value supporting small and local businesses you might be surprised to know that all of the jewellery we stock is made in Hobart by local artisans Little Lari and Ruth Evenhuis Designs.

Our new collection of ceramics by Emma from Rupert Gallery is also made right here in Hobart. This collection isn't available online yet but can be bought in store. 

 

If you value supporting non-profits, we have labels that do that too! Each purchase of our deliciously soft cashmere from Mia Fratino goes to the Mia Fratino Foundation, which works to empower and improve the lives of women in developing countries. 

Looking for socks? Each pair of Conscious Step socks sold, a donation goes to a non-profit such as Global Citizen, Oxfam and Action Against Hunger .The festive socks pictured above are partnered with Trees for the Future, who plant 20 trees for each pair sold. How great is that?

We hope that we have given you some good Christmas present ideas that you can feel good about giving.
