The Heart of Peace in the gorgeous gold heart is inspired by a utopian world, a place where we can all live in peace despite our differences. While gold can be provocative, this scent is not about wealth and power as one would first assume with the gold reference. Our real power comes from peace – both inner and with those around us. Respect, acceptance, sharing, inclusivity – this is real wealth, this is truly living with a heart of gold. This perfume wraps us up in a warm and comforting cocoon, a bubble of sheer joy. The inclusion of Warm Milk and Saffron in the notes also demonstrate these values. Milk is the first nutrient we all receive. It is democratic, our mother’s milk has no barriers, no class, it is universal. Then Saffron, the glorious golden spice that has been treasured and traded since ancient times. Renowned for its preciousness, Saffron represents that what is precious is not valued in money. What is truly precious comes from our values.

HOW IT WEARS
The Gold Heart lasts really well on the skin giving us atleast 8 hours. The Saffron and Milk are the stars here creating a warm and creamy spice on the skin, without delving into a particularly sweet territory.
We love the message behind this perfume, and we also love the Milky Saffron scent on the skin. Smelling slightly dry after about 6 hours, The Heart of Peace was easy to wear, not overwhelming but felt comforting and delicious on the skin. It mellowed beautifully, so it didn’t feel too spicy over time just rich and rounded.
