Full Scent Description

Gibbon’s Boarding School is the scent of a refined institution of higher learning. Feel the crunch of scattered dried leaves underneath your feet before crossing the threshold. Inhale whiffs of embers smouldering in the fireplace at the entryway, begging to be stoked and tended. Walk down well-traversed hallways and trace your fingers along extensive woodwork over a century old before coming to a pause before the grand library which contains many original works from when the school first opened. Vacant leather chairs await tenants at strategically placed tables lit by green glass banker’s lamps. Breathe in the faint scent of autumn air permeating throughout the building from open classroom windows. Dappled sunlight illuminates crisp paper sitting atop dusty wooden desks. A pencil case contains a carefully sealed tobacco pouch hidden within. Steal away to the boiler room during lunch for a secret smoke.

Thirty-two notes were selected to evoke the atmosphere of the sprawling brick school. Gibbon’s is composed of a variety of woods, leathers, smoke notes, light spices, ambers and vanillas with tobacco, dirt, leaves, black musk, frankincense, moss and hint of apple.

Gibbon’s leans masculine but it can be enjoyed by Women who enjoy our darker woodier fragrances. It has a smooth and rounded feel on the skin. When first applied, you can detect a hint of the autumnal notes of leaves and air. This gives way to a very sophisticated high-end fragrance that does not morph to the extent our other blends often do. It is fairly linear but it also has a multitude of layers and complexity carefully crafted to create this unique sensory experience.

Product Information

Ingredients: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Fragrance (may include essential oils).
Size:
 Approx 5ml packaged in a glass vial with protective box.
Other: Our Perfume oils are all Vegan with the exception of Inquisitor, which contains beeswax absolute.
Application tip: If your roller ball runs dry during application, remove black cap, hold your bottle vertically with roller ball pointing to the ground and forcefully shake/thrust the bottle down one time to replenish the oil in the well. Now it is ready to reapply to your skin.

Storage and Shelf Life

Most of our perfume oils are good for several years.  We use rice bran oil as a carrier oil.  Due to rice bran’s high anti-oxidant content, it has a very good shelf life.
Storing your oils appropriately will affect the shelf life.  Be careful to store your Solstice Scents products, especially perfumes, out of direct sunlight and in a cool place as heat and light can age the products.

Safety Precautions for Pregnant or Nursing Mothers

Solstice Scent’s opinion is to avoid all fragranced and/or essential oil products while pregnant or nursing, especially in the first trimester.  You may do your own research on the safety of using perfumes and fragrances while pregnant or nursing.  Essential oils, fragrances and absolutes may pass into the bloodstream and may even cross the placental barrier.  Not all oils are of concern, but Mothers should be cautious, especially in the first tri-mester.  Some essential oils stimulate menstruation, are abortifacient, lower blood pressure and produce a myriad of other effects internally and externally and it is advised you exercise caution and be informed.  Products which contain oils that we are aware should not be used while pregnant or nursing contain a warning at the top of the listing, above the description, though we still feel that unscented products are better for pregnant or nursing mothers.  You may also wish to spray your perfumes conservatively on clothing instead of wearing them directly on the skin or try a few sprays of Glace combed through your dry hair or a little of the perfume oil rubbed in your hair.

About Solstice Scents

Solstice Scents started serving the local Gainesville, FL area in 2004. We originally sold soap, lotion, salts, candles, body oil, loose hand blended incense powders, dream pillows, eye pillows and neck pillows. We took our orders on order forms printed on parchment paper, hand wrote all of our tags and attached them with satin ribbon and
affixed our familiar mastic tree labels to bottles with rubber cement. Customers were able to select ala carte fresh made items directly off the order form, including customizing candle color or fabric choices. Bath salts were offered in upcycled Monin syrup bottles from the coffee shop Angela used to work at, topped with corks ordered from a wine supplier.

The business has evolved significantly since that time, though the same spirit, inspiration and aesthetic is infused into each item. While we no longer offer custom made items, all products are made with the same attention to detail and in small batches to ensure freshness. Our labels are designed in house with the original mastic tree
logo. The labels are applied by hand to the products. Each fragrance is still handwritten on the product label to this day.

Product Enquiry

ALL product descriptions and information is provided by the brand. Although we strive to provide you with an accurate portrayal of the product, please keep in mind many factors are subjective. What we have listed as ‘microglitter’ may be described by the customer as just a ‘glitter’ or ‘texture’; an ‘emerald green’ may be seen as a ‘rich teal’ by the customer. Our product swatches are picked carefully by our team, but please remember that swatches are also subjective to application technique and lighting. While every attempt is made to accurately portray all product colours, variations from what you see on your screen compared to what you see with your own eyes are inevitable due to individual monitor settings.

We also encourage customers to view our review tab (if applicable), and to visit the site of the swatcher (linked at base of 'description' tab, if applicable).
