Each of our premium natural perfumes is created in 10-20 litres. Our limited edition Oud Mukhallats are blended in batches of 3-5 litres due to the very high cost of real oud 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.
And natural perfume smells true… of sweet herbs and wildflowers gathered on sunlit strolls through fields and orchards, and carried home, gently bundled in the rolled up front of a linen shirt.
Such stories shine bright and bold as morning, drifting with you into the reverie of dusk, lingering, languid in the darkness as you float into the arms of deep night.
1. No animal testing. All testing is done on humans.
2. No animalics in our fragrances ever.
3. Aside from organic beeswax used in our unguents all of our perfume is 100% vegan and gluten-free.
4. Although our fine fragrances are entirely composed from natural ingredients, they do not smell like aromatherapies, they are works of art.
NATURAL PERFUME – HOW?
Concentrates are exclusively composed from therapeutic-grade essential oils, alcohol 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’.
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 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.
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.
As an artisan boutique, we hand-make and package each and every perfume. We avoid the use of plastic. We know its time to stop creating unnecessary and non-biodegradable rubbish in our world. 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.
Manufactured over 50 years ago, our signature flacons are vintage French crystal (Vererrie Cristal D’Arques) and vintage Italian glass (Braun).
In addition, we offer 30ml crimped spray atomisers and convenient, sturdy, reusable 10ml Scent Pencils.
BOTTLE SIZE OPTIONS
We offer affordable, reusable 10ml spray atomiser Scent Pencils as our traveler size. These provide at least 10 generous applications that reveal our scents in all sorts of conditions – indoors, outdoors, day, night, in warm and/or cool weather. We made this choice out of deep respect for all of the ingredients, with concern for the environmental impact of packaging and handling components as well as the fuel and energy resources used in shipping fragrances across the globe. Our choice allows us to conduct our business more ethically and produce our art sustainably. In addition, we offer 30ml spray atomisers (crimped), 50ml and 100ml vintage French crystal flacons (reusable/dab-on). Oil parfums are packaged in 30ml frosted black glass dripolators.
