TRNP is an Australian, artisanal perfumery that specialises in producing small-batch, natural fine fragrances. Each of our premium natural perfumes is created in 5-10 litres. Our limited edition Oudh Mukhallats are blended in batches of 3-5 litres due to the very high cost of real oudh and other supremely fine absolutes.
Although subsequent batches are blended afresh, natural fragrances are created exclusively from plant-based ingredients which vary from batch to batch depending on seasonal conditions and harvest yields. This feature is creatively utilised to highlight exceptional ingredients as they reveal themselves. We consider our fragrances scented mandalas; meditations on the wonder of being here, fully alive in this moment.
Designed and built in-house
Our fragrances are comprised of 2 parts:- a concentrated natural fragrance blend composed by Teone, to which is added the perfume diluent (or carrier medium). The concentrated fragrance blends are composed from botanical ingredients that have been distilled, extracted or hand-tinctured. The concentrates are diluted in media such as fractionated coconut oil, alcohol, filtered water, and our solid perfume/unguent base of organic beeswax and coconut oil. After simple unbleached paper filtering, (fining) these blends become finished fragrance. Over time, many of the fragrances will reveal some tiny particles of resins and absolutes that settle at the bottom of the bottle. This is a hallmark of natural perfume. Shake and spray.
Concentrates are exclusively composed from therapeutic-grade essential oils, solvent-extracted absolutes and resins, as well as hand-tinctured plant parts (such as flowers and seeds/beans etc). We do not add isolates, compounds, synthetics or ‘nature-identicals’. As an artisan, small-batch perfumery, we purchase our raw natural materials in good faith from a wide range of essential oils suppliers. We do not have the lab facilities to analyse the materials, and we rely on the certificates of authenticity of our suppliers.
The diluent for our alcohol-based perfumes is 95PG (denatured ethanol from sugar-cane), and fractionated coconut oil for our pure oil parfums. 95PG is Perfumery Grade ethanol, which is widely used in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and beauty industries for all products across the wide spectrum of perfumes, after shave, deodorant, hair care, lotions etc.
Our raw materials are sourced from a number of essential oils suppliers, most of whom are located here in Australia, although our Government-certified Mysore sandalwood comes from a traditional attar maker in India. We love Grandawood, Naked Press, Tanah, Escentials of Australia, New Directions, Earthyard, and Leonardi Laboratories.
Many of our tinctures are derived from raw materials that are either grown in our garden or sourced from generous friends with super-green thumbs.
Being a small-batch producer is a feature that allows us to hand-tincture as many raw materials as possible. The process really invigorates our floral fragrances with a beautiful airiness, and infuses our oriental ambers with naturally earthy vanilla, tonka and cacao scents that are deeply satisfying.
We believe that our noses detect beautiful truth in these elements; they give us complexity in the aromatic ‘flavours’ that are so often absent in many synthetic fragrances.
Although our fine fragrances are plump and juicy with precious natural ingredients, we use simple packaging and frequently choose recycled cardboard for our packaging.
We know its time to stop creating unnecessary and non-biodegradable rubbish in our world.
As an artisan boutique, we hand-craft, bottle and package each and every perfume.
Wherever possible, we avoid the use of plastic. Our boxes are sealed with biodegradable cellophane (not plastic).
We invest in sourcing the very best quality raw ingredients, to ensure that its always the perfume itself that shines brightest.
We aim to strike a perfect balance between producing adequate stock to supply our valued customers, whilst maintaining a respectful principle of elegant sufficiency.
We hope you’ll join with us in embracing a cleaner, more natural way of enjoying perfume, and discovering, especially, the love in our soulful elixirs.
Manufactured over 60 years ago, our signature flacons are vintage French crystal (Vererrie Cristal D’Arques) and vintage Italian glass (Braun). These were designed as luxury dab-on decanters and are highly collectible flacons. In addition, we offer 30ml crimped spray glass atomisers.
All of our bottles are accurately filled by measure to the amount specified, (10ml, 30ml, 50ml and 100ml), and we also are required to allow a small space in each bottle for ullage (room in the bottle for expansion of contents due to fluctuating conditions of air freight during international shipping). The ullage is a requirement of aviation safety regulations.
