My name is Jennifer Hardaway and I am a perfumer and business owner. Phoebe Peacock was my great grandmother. She was born in Kansas in 1876 and passed away in 1955. I learned of her name from researching my Grandma Hazel (her only daughter). I never met Phoebe, but once I discovered her, chills came over me. I knew I was destined to create a beautiful lifestyle and home brand. Phoebe Peacock Parfums is the beginning of that story. Please join me in exploring all things Phoebe Peacock. All things beautiful and dear.
"Dear world: Do not throw anything away because at the bottom of our trash lies the fermented distillation of great love. The garbage trucks hold flowers that can still bleed, the peels and rinds that can still give. The noxious exhalations have honey notes that can merge with the earth. And there are so many floating concretions, the trash that is thrown into the sea, and the natural waste, the ambergris, mystical symbols, the attitudes of primitive tribes – these must now be reprocessed.
To paraphrase and distort Alan Paton: Cry, my beloved planet, for the unborn child; let him not love the earth too deeply, for it is slipping away."
"I'm obsessed with ... Gallivant's creations, all of which are amazingly sure-footed: they smell only of themselves, are not reminiscent of anybody else and are accomplished in an almost old-fashioned way.
They smell really, really good.
It's possible to admire all sorts of exciting, complex modern perfumery while going "Actually, do you mind if I don't?" when offered a squoosh."
Istanbul: "I would bathe in this. It's an ambery, spicy oriental that smells like a classic but also, as I say, completely modern and new."
