Made in time-honoured tradition, Cushi B is the essence of one of Dolma founder Jim Payne’s first perfumes, its name musically inspired by the character in a folk song. Jim loved to experiment with essential oils (plant compounds) and a loyal following of 25 vegans regularly ordered his 6 early perfumes. He created Cushi B from lime and orange to achieve a citrus aroma with ylang ylang adding the floral note. Balanced with the gentle spices ginger and cinnamon Cushi B achieves a heritage fragrance still popular today. Enjoy the feelgood fragrance of Cushi B which has been every so slightly tweaked into this new modern classic.
