Natural Perfumes

Natural Perfumery is the art and science of using natural plant essences to create perfumes. Perfumery has been compared to other arts such as music because it uses a variety of blends or chords and different 'notes' that subtly change their scent depending on your individual body chemistry and time since they are first applied to the skin.

Natural plant essences have been used for centuries to provide aromatic blends that might be mysterious, uplifting, grounding, calming or sensual. This art depends on the complex nature of plant extracts. I love working with pure essential oil or absolute extracts of plants to create natural perfume blends. There is satisfaction in using all natural ingredients to create an emotional response and I wouldn't want anything less on my skin.

You probably already know that you don't necessarily like the same aromas as your friends and family. It's your personality that we will work to satisfy, not mine or Christian Dior's. You may like sweet, or more floral scents or you may prefer a woodsy or earthy tone. You may also prefer a different scent for different occasions or at different times of the day. Because your personal perfume is constructed using essential oils with reputed therapeutic properties, it may also lift you on a cloudy day or calm you when you are stressed. A sensual blend with jasmine can be used for a romantic evening or a grounding blend including sandalwood may help with a demanding time in your life.
