I have just found and tested a new fragrance, made not only in Australia but in my beloved Dandenongs. It is very affordable and lasts a long time, seems to be water proof and soap proof. So for those of you on a budget, it may be the new “parfum” you can purchase for your WAGS (for those older readers, not familiar with social media jargon, that means Wives and girlfriends).
It has a strong earthy Base Note, (The heaviest scent that lingers the longest), reminiscent of a green paddock in spring, the scent of moist earth with woody undertones, with a powerful sillage (the trail of scent left behind by a perfume). I would not qualify it as floral, nor fresh, nor oriental but definitely woody or earthy.
It is made by a new parfumeur on the Australian market, a company appropriately called Moo’s scents ...another name for it is biodynamic cow manure tree paste, wonderful to apply to the trunk of your fruit trees to protect them against fungal issues, seal a wound, repel pear and cherry slugs and keep rats and possums away…might keep men and women away too…stay tuned for latest developments as I do further tests on this "fragrance".
Joke apart, I am very impressed with this biodynamic tree paste made of green sloppy cow manure from lactating cows mixed with bentonite clay, diatomaceous earth,lime and water. The whole mixture needs to be stirred for quite a while in a specific way to create a vortex of energy...
When applied to the trunks of fruit trees, it nourishes the tree, seals any wounds causing entry points for fungal diseases, lichen and scale, suffocates small critters like cherry slugs and borers as they climb up the trunk and the smell deters possums and rats...the smell is not obvious to humans once dried on the trunk but picked up by rodents.
The biodynamic tutor who made this mix also recommended a book by E.Pfeiffer titled
"Biodynamic treatment of trees with paste"
Love Springtime and the gorgeous bulbs in the garden.
