Aroma: Intense rose, geranium and jasmine with floral mandarin and sweet, woody zdravetz.

Our perfumes are natural and don't contain synthetic fragrances or extenders. Expect them to last a couple of hours on the skin, and enjoy re-application throughout the day.
For external use only. Not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers. Store out of reach of children and away from heat and light. Avoid contact with clothing (the oils might stain).
Why isn't natural perfume as strong as my regular perfume?
Natural perfume is beautifully complex but more subtle than synthetic perfume. Botanical perfumes have a light sillage (scent trail). They are more personal, in that they are detectable to only you and those you invite into your personal space.
We love perfumer Sophie Labbé’s explanation: "A quiet sillage is a fragrance for yourself, for your well-being. It's not to make people approach; it's just for you." For this reason, natural perfume roll-ons are perfect for the office environment, or anywhere synthetic fragrances are unwelcome.
How long can I expect the perfumes to last on my skin?
Our perfumes will last anywhere from two to six hours or more. Check out our FAQs for a list of factors that determine the longevity of natural perfumes.
Botanical perfumes are fleeting by nature. They don’t contain the chemical fragrance extenders found in synthetic perfumes. We see this as a benefit and find reapplying natural perfumes throughout the day a lovely ritual.
Are your perfumes organic?
We use organic ingredients whenever possible. The perfume blends range from 76.5% to 92.5% organic. If an organic essential oil is out of stock, cost prohibitive or inferior in scent quality, we'll reach for a wildcrafted alternative. Very few oils and extracts in our current collection are grown conventionally. All ingredients are sustainably sourced. Please email us for specifics at firstname.lastname@example.org.
