I would like an abstract phoenix and lotus incorporated. The first picture I attached is more like the type of logo I want in green and gold (maybe green on the bottom and fading into gold) and the second picture is to show the type of curves I'd like on the phoenix's wings or lotus' leaves. In short, I like the first logo but softer and more elegant.
Also, this will go on black containers so it'll need to pop. I'm not sure if the labels will be printed on clear labels or just with the background you choose.
