The story: An exquisite scent inspired by Oscar Wilde's dark and fantastical tale about a man obsessed with his own beauty. An alluring scent of rose geranium and citrus with just a hint of enigmatic spice in its depth.

The product: A moisturising lip balm made with pure essential oils and beetroot extract. It will appear transparent on the lips. The tube is made from recycled cardboard and plant glue, and is 100% compostable. To use, gently push on the bottom to bring out the content.

Based on 6 reviews

Rose is one of my favorite scents, ever, and this did not disappoint! It it such a lovely scent, and makes my lips feel incredible. I say this about all of the lip balms, but this one is definitely a favorite of mine.

Love the play on words !

The tubes are eco friendly and compostable ! That's amazing. I'm having great difficulty picking my fave lip balms, but when it comes to names this one wins for sure ;)


This lip balm is so nourishing! I hate lip balms that I have to reapply every hour, but this can last around 6 hours for me personally. The scent is lovely, quite strong, but I prefer that. It cheers me up to smell such a lovely scent. I have recommended to my friends, and will repurchase!

Great scented balms

I love my new balms, they are so soothing and they last a long time... I'm addicted to balms and these are just perfect and lovely. Cannot ask for more😊 Picture of Dorian Bay is my second favorite after the first place that is for Enchanted Rose and Arabian Nights, still cannot decide the ultimate favorite one.


Wonderful products. Fields of Rohan is one of my firm favourites that I’ve ordered a few time’s. I had never tried one of the tube lip balms before, but I would definitely order again. I love the fact that they are not plastic, and are recyclable. The flavour is great as well. Fast shipping, despite delays with the post. Thank you!
