Vanilla, Oak, Almond.

Once upon a time, there lived a clever young woman who loved stories. She travelled far and wide to find the stories she craved, but more often than not, the stories found her. One day, not so long ago, she was curled up with a good book in front of the fire in her cozy cottage in the woods. Then came a knock at the door...

"Once Upon a Time" is the first scent in our new collection called Tropeable by Onset & Rime. It’s a classic vanilla scent with a twist. The vanilla is combined with almond for a unique sweetness, while the oak acts as a balancer so it’s not too sweet. Like baking cookies in your cottage in the woods.

Tropeable is a collection inspired by common story threads, or tropes. A trope is anything that gets used often enough to be recognized. There are character tropes (the damsel in distress), setting tropes (the cottage in the woods), stock phrases (once upon a time) and more.

The Tropeable scents are simple and accessible, with our own little spin. Think plain white tees and blue jeans with a signature accessory.
