Tru Blooms Second Harvest…A Unique Scent Each Year

Tru Blooms Bottle and Box no background

Tru Blooms is the first perfume of its kind, created from flowers that were planted, grown and harvested in the urban gardens of Chicago. It is a gift and tribute to the cities citizens who took this project hands on and nurtured this fine fragrance from seed to scent.

Each bottle is a unique experience, a recollection of the flowers grown in Chicago that year. This years harvest created a beautiful aquatic floral perfume with sparkling citrus top notes that blend seamlessly with rich heart notes of rose geranium, lily of the valley and pink rose petals. The warm base notes of blond woods, patchouli and warm musk round out this soft and feminine scent. This scent will only be offered once and never repeated, available as Tru Blooms Second Harvest while supplies last.

From Last Summer’s Gardens

The first Tru Blooms Chicago perfume, created from gardens grown in the summer of 2012, was an elegant composition made of sheer rose, soothing lavender, white Oriental lily and sensuous violet.

If you haven’t purchased your bottle yet, it’s not too late – but, there is a limited supply. Being truly from flowers harvested last year, this scent will never be duplicated again.

An Extraordinary Event: 2013 Second Harvest

One hundred percent of the flowers and plants grown in Tru Blooms Chicago gardens are represented in the Tru Blooms Second Harvest eau de parfum.  The 2013 harvest will include rose, lavender, patchouli and rose geraniums.

This evergreen perennial herb is used primarily as a fixative. But in recent history, patchouli’s slightly sweet and intoxicating note has been elevated to the status of a top note.

Rose GeraniumsRose Geraniums

The flowers of a geranium shrub produce a green, rich and long-lasting fruity-mint scent with a hint of rose. The leaf produces a rosy nuance that is less powdery and more lemony than rose.
