About Natural Perfumery
Aromatic ingredients that deliver natural luxuriance.
We are passionate about reviving the lost art of natural perfumery. Natural perfumery is an ancient practice which uses entirely botanical ingredients such as flowers, citrus, resins, woods, barks etc . The subtleness of a natural perfume ensures that you do no overpower any room that you walk into. It is akin to having your own private scent veil which is smelt by you and those who embrace you.
Natural perfumery dates back to Ancient Babylon and Egypt right up to the turn of the 20th Century. At the end of the 19th Century and the turn of the 20th Century, synthetic ingredients were introduced to perfumes. These synthetic ingredients allowed perfumes to become produced in much larger quantities than their natural counterparts.
The use of natural ingredients in perfumery, however, is much healthier for the environment and our wellbeing. People with allergies, who can’t have the hormone disrupting chemicals of synthetic perfumes or simply can’t tolerate the strong smells of some synthetic fragrances are so pleased to be able to wear a natural perfume that doesn’t react with them.
We use French perfumery principles in the construction of our perfumes. The French were famous for introducing different notes into perfumery. In the 1800’s famous French Perfumer, G.W. Septimus Piesse was the first to use top, middle and base notes of music as an analogy to constructing perfume. These French Perfumery techniques are the perfect harmony of top, middle and base notes to a produce a beautifully blended fragrance.
