AFTER THE RAIN
Lilac, Wisteria, Blue Lotus, Rain, Green Accord, Wild Violets, Earth
After the Rain is a natural perfume in organic cane sugar alcohol featuring notes of lilac, purple wisteria, blue lotus absolute, rain, new green leaves, wild violets, soil, clary sage and more. After the Rain is a lilac-heavy fragrance with green and petrichor top notes. This perfume celebrates the eruption of blooms that occur after the spring rains. It is a cool-tone purple floral with delicate rain drops clinging to the velvet petals and lush green leaves. The rain accord comes through as the scent of rain left after the storm has passed, rather than the strong eruption of petrichor that explodes as soon as the rain begins to fall. It is a cool, wet, misty impression that hovers around the bold lilac, wisteria and peaceful blue lotus absolute. The wild violets are subtle and meld with the bolder floral notes rather than standing our like in our violet focused perfumes. The green elements are carefully restrained and primarily detectable along with the rain top notes upon initial application. After the Rain feels romantic, Victorian, haunting, mysterious and elegant. It conjures visions of being in the English countryside in a stone cottage covered in wisteria vines. The leaded glass window has been left open to allow the cool rain-tinged air and the scent of florals and greenery to waft in. A touch of cool wet earth remains into the dry down, just behind the flowers.
Available as 5 ml alcohol based roll on, 60 ml EDP and 2.5 ml EDP sample spray.
BLOSSOM JAM TEA CAKES
Southern Tea Cakes, Petit Fours, Floral Infused Jams & Preserves and a Delicate Aroma of Tea
Blossom Jam Tea Cakes features the mouthwatering aromas of Petit Fours filled with floral infused jams and preserves, enrobed in sweet fondant, warm southern tea cakes topped with a delicate lavender buttercream and a subtle waft of hot tea. A rich cakey base supports light floral and fruit notes to create a beautiful atmospheric spring gourmand floral fragrance.
Notes include: yellow and white cake, honeysuckle absolute, palmarosa EO, peach, strawberry, blood orange EO, lavender absolute, ylang ylang absolute, buttercream, fondant. The floral notes listed may give the impression that this is a heady floral but it's not. Rather, the floral notes were used with restraint and were intended to infuse the delicate fruit notes to create an interpretation of floral jams and preserves thinly spread on fluffy cakes. A very unique fragrance.
Available in 5 ml perfume oil, 60 ml Eau de Parfum and 2.5 ml EDP sample spray
Whipped Cream, Peach Nectar, Vanilla & Yellow Mandarin EO
Our Chantilly Cream is white fluffy whipped cream sweetened with vanilla and just a touch of peach nectar. A light addition of lovely yellow mandarin essential oil tempers the juicy peach note. The primary notes in this blend are the whipped cream and a blend of vanillas and they are also the longest lasting. The peach nectar and yellow mandarin are more detectable in the cold sniff of the blend and are very subtle on the skin and add a juicy touch to the more dominant scent of the whipped cream accord. This fragrance is best judged not on cold sniff or immediately after application but after about 5 to 7 minutes of morphing before its true scent is revealed. It will become sweeter the longer it wears and the fruit notes will eventually recede completely.
Chantilly Cream has a profile that is very light, sweet and delicate. It hugs very close to the skin and is intended for a gentle skin sweetening treat when you wish to wear something a little lighter and less heady near those sensitive to fragrance, in the work environment or just because you want to indulge in something a little softer in scent and throw. It is a versatile scent that would pair and layer wonderfully with fragrances in your collection that contain notes of coconut, cake, fruit, vanilla or even select floral scents (white florals such as jasmine, tuberose and lily especially).
Available in 5 ml perfume oil and Burnishing Glace
Vanilla, White Amber, White Musk & Lemon Myrtle EO
DO NOT APPLY IMMEDIATELY AFTER A HOT SHOWER OR NEAR CUTS OR BROKEN SKIN AS LEMON MYRTLE MAY STING.
Chiffon is a dual concept fragrance that brings together the airy, sweet and refreshingly tart taste of Lemon Chiffon pie and the elegant, wispy and equally airy beauty of chiffon fabric. A very special top-shelf, perfectly sweet and non-cloying vanilla (one of the vanillas in Nightgown) provides a base for a delicate touch of white amber and white musk. Chiffon is completed with the bright and uplifting scent of pure lemon myrtle essential oil. The lemon myrtle is one of the dominant notes on cold sniff and initial application. It will recede within 5 to 10 minutes and allow the other notes to emerge. Unlike most lemon essential oil top notes that disappear fairly quickly, lemon myrtle EO has a strong lemon-like scent but also a very good staying power. Lemon Myrtle is distilled from the leaves of a native Australian Tree. As it fades and takes a back seat to the other notes a wonderful, sweet, ethereal and beautiful long-lasting scent is left behind.The longer Chiffon is on the skin, the sweeter it gets. The vanilla is the longest lasting note of the blend and takes on a glorious whipped cream and an almost marshmallow note the longer it is on the skin. A really lovely and sophisticated scent! Fans of some of our other scents like Nightgown, Snowshoe Pass and Manor should really enjoy Chiffon.
While Chiffon is overall a scent that smells light and airy like clouds, it also is pretty strong and seems to grow stronger the longer it is on the skin so apply a modest amount on your first try and let it sit for about 45 minutes to gauge how much you will need for future applications.
Available in 5 ml perfume oil, 60 ml Eau de Parfum and 2.5 ml EDP sample spray and Burnishing Glace
DEVIL'S MILLHOPPER - REFORMULATED 2019
Heather, Fern, Spring-fed Waterfall, New Spring Leaves, Earth, Wild Violet, Coumarin, Oak
Not to be used by women who are pregnant or nursing.
This perfume has been reformulated as of 2019. It features a similar profile to the previous incarnation but is more complex, smooth and well rounded. The watery elements are more obvious and the addition of a variety of other green and botanical accents adds to a more dynamic atmosphere.
This scent contains notes of heather, lush fern, young spring leaves, rich Earth, creamy coumarin, a touch of wild purple violets and an assortment of woods, including oak, used to interpret the atmosphere of Devil's Millhopper. These notes are paired with a refreshing splash of spring-fed waterfall accord. On cold sniff and initial application it smells of fern, new spring leaves, vines, creamy coumarin and a fresh floral heather. The green top notes lead to a cool-toned floral heather surrounded by a mist of water. The dry down is soft, fresh and lush with a deep purple floral character and very light oak just beneath. It is not foresty or heavy on the wood notes. It smells lushly green and purple with a splash of crisp spring water. Close your eyes and feel the cool air pressing in from the sides of the sinkhole, a delicate mist tickling your face, the dappled sunlight peeking through the tops of the hammock above.
Devil's Millhopper is a unique geological formation that is 120 ft. deep and 500 ft. across at the rim. The sinkhole's name comes from its funnel-like shape which resembles a grist mill's hopper in which grain was held. Early settlers found fossilized animal remains and shark's teeth at the bottom and along the craggy walls leading them to believe that this was the place where bodies were fed to the Devil. Devil's Millhopper has a lush primitive environment with fern, moss, lichen, rare plants and a variety of trees. There are several small caves and waterfalls which flow into the basin below. The water then travels to an underground river which leads to the Florida aquifer.
Available as 5 ml perfume oil only
ESTATE LAVENDER *NEW* (Eau de Parfum Exclusive)
Estate Vanilla, Lavender (many varieties), Bergamot, Black Tea, Coriander, Wild Violet, Davana, Heather, Rain
Not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.
While Estate Lavender is lavender forward, it is primarily lavender-heavy in the opening and morphs from there. We have combined several wild and organic lavenders from France, Bulgaria and Italy, including a lovely maillette. Coumarin heavy lavender absolute and liatrix absolute is also present. The lavender is paired with a black tea accord (natural and synthetic blend), bright bergamot and organic coriander, a light smattering of fresh wild violets, a sprig of purple heather and a cool mist of rain.
It opens with a strong blast of lavender, bergamot and coriander. The violet comes just behind but it is light, fresh, delicate, not very powdery and used with careful restraint. A bit of davana with it's almost herbal blueberry scent peeks out here and there with the violet. The black tea immediately follows. It is primarily dried black tea leaves but there is a bit of the strong, very dry steeped black tea in there is well. It wafts in and out as your nose goes looking for it. The pairing with bergamot gives it a bit of an Earl Grey tea feeling. The rain is a light mist that tickles the nose and feels almost effervescent. The light mist and cool fog begins to emerge after detecting the tea. The purple heather adds a bit of fresh floral that works as a nice accent note. The dry down features Estate Vanilla and black tea as the most prominent notes with a touch of heather and faint traces of lavender absolute and violet.
The mood of this scent is slightly somber, sophisticated, quiet, contemplative, haunting.
A must for lavender lovers. It's an amazing sleep scent for those of you who enjoy lavender fragrances before bed. Highly recommended on that front. Also a good one to calm frayed nerves and de-stress, if you are responsive lavender based aromatherapy.
Eau de Parfum Exclusive (2.5 ml and 60 ml)
Osmanthus, Elderflower, Apricot, Vanilla, Juniper, Lime, Manuka Honey Accord (Vegan), Pear, Citron, Hawaiian Sandalwood
Gin Flower is a delicious natural perfume in organic cane sugar alcohol. This is based off a gin and St. Germain elderflower liqueur cocktail and is the first in a series of cocktail perfumes. Elderflower liqueur tastes like nectar. It is a sweet liqueur with notes of pear, apricot and honey. Gin Flower is sweet, lightly fruity, fizzy and zesty scent with loads of osmanthus flower absolute. Osmanthus, also known as tea olive, has a strong apricot-like note. It is more fruity than floral and also has the faintest leather note to it. Osmanthus and apricot are the strongest mid to base notes along with a large dose of vanilla and subtle traces of organic Hawaiian sandalwood. The top notes are juniper berries, which give gin it's distinctive flavor, lime zest and juice and citron. Gin Flower also contains a special elderflower accord made with tons of elderflower CO2, pear, manuka honey accord (vegan) and apricot. On initial application, you will smell a burst of a gin and tonic due to the juniper, lime and citron notes. These are short lived top notes that give way to the generous saturation of osmanthus, vanilla and elderflower. Gin Flower develops quickly and becomes fairly linear but retains a slight zest along with the sweet and fruity apricot/osmanthus. The combo is mouthwatering and uplifting.
As a natural perfume, longevity is a bit shorter than our mixed media or synthetic perfumes. After the initial opening, the perfume will wear a bit closer to the skin with a more intimate throw. It does last for several hours and it does waft from the skin. It will continue to get stronger as it ages in the bottle so the scent will be even more concentrated/strong months from now. For best results, apply very generously with a few layers (apply, let dry, apply more to the same spot. Do this a few times) and it will last surprisingly long for a natural! The performance is even better on clothing when sprayed in a layered format in the same spot. This perfume is best experienced in spray format but is being offered for convenience to those who prefer roll ons.
Available as 5 ml alcohol based roll on, 60 ml EDP and 2.5 ml EDP sample spray
Sweet Clover, Coumarin, Vanilla Musk, Fresh Green Accord, Poplar Buds, Morning Dew
Inspired by the scent of budding spring in the meadows of the Appalachian mountains, Mountain Vanilla is a coumarin-heavy scent with vanilla and light green elements. The spring air smells strongly of coumarin, specifically the scent of wild sweet clover (the white flowers pictured), along with a cool morning dew and light green notes. It also carries a scent reminiscent of carrot flowers. Mountain Vanilla focuses heavily on coumarin rich notes such as sweet clover absolute, deerstongue and Bulgarian Lavender absolute (used lightly. This is not a lavender perfume) paired with vanillic Chinese Silk vine, vanilla, vanilla musk, poplar bud absolute, tonka and elderflower (elderflower smells like a heavenly nectar of fruit and Manuka honey. It's not particularly floral, more of a nectar scent). Top notes include a green accord of shiso leaf, fern, green clover and bluegrass along with a trace of cool morning dew clinging to the green shoots. The dry down features primarily vanilla and coumarin. It's a very sweet, creamy perfume with subtle green nuances. Mountain Vanilla is an alcohol based mixed media perfume.
Available as 5 ml alcohol based roll on, 60 ml EDP and 2.5 ml EDP sample spray
VICTORIAN PICNIC - *NEW*
Pound Cake, Loquat-Lemon Glaze, Orange Blossoms, Wisteria, Ladyfingers, Jasmine, Azalea Leaf & Reisling
NOT TO BE USED BY WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING.
Victorian Picnic is a bright floral gourmand blend featuring pound cake with loquat-lemon glaze, bold orange blossoms, delicate wisteria flowers, spongy ladyfingers, a faint trace of jasmine's first blooms, a small splash of Reisling wine and a touch of azalea leaf. Opens very strong with a bold orange infused pound cake and plentiful orange blossoms. Allow the perfume to settle for a few minutes as the heady opening smooths out gives way to uplifting orange blossoms and puffs or wisteria on the breeze. The floral aspects are prominent for the first half hour of wear time with the pound cake and sweet ladyfingers just behind. A light top note citrus medley of loquat and lemon weaves in between the floral notes. The jasmine is very faint and is subtly detectable once the orange blossom and wisteria begin to recede. The rich brown exterior of the dense pound cake is readily detectable on the dry down. Victorian Picnic is in the vein of Blossom Jam Tea Cakes but with very different floral notes and a modified cake accord. The azalea leaf is an accent note to temper the very sweet aspects of the blend; it is not detectable as a green or leafy note in the blend. A splash of nectar and light fruit forward Reisling wine accompanies the cake on the dry down.
Perfume oil and Eau de Parfum only.
VICTORIAN TEA ROOM
Not for pregnant or nursing women.
Victorian Tea Room is a bright fruity floral perfume featuring light palmarosa essential oil, kumquat-orange marmalade, Roman chamomile essential oil, rose accord (natural and synthetic mix), lemon and dry black tea on an Oriental base that has loads of vanillic amber. Palmarosa smells like a mix of a very light rose geranium (it contains geraniol) but much more watery and floral tea-like than rose geranium essential oil. This perfume does contain a touch of rose geranium EO as well. It starts out with a bright floral and fruity zesty marmalade and a little chamomile tea. The dry black tea hovers just beneath with accents of lemon at the top. The dry down features a soft, sweet, linear amber Oriental. Victorian Tea Room is comprised of many naturals and is also a floral and fruit dominated scents. As such, this perfume does not have the longevity of some of our darker base note heavy amber and incense blends. The scent is so pleasant, bright and uplifting that you will likely wish to reapply every few hours to fully enjoy this beauty.
Perfume oil, 60 ml Eau de Parfum, Burnishing Glace and Whipped Soap
WHITE FEATHER - Eau de Parfum Exclusive
Estate Vanilla, Jasmine Absolute, Gardenia Enfleurage, Saffron CO2, Sandalwood, Spices, Amber, Oud, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang
White Feather is an exquisite, lush, sensual, narcotic white floral that begins with a base of Estate Vanilla, our house vanilla with notes of raw vanilla pods, vanilla infused sugar, cream and vanilla extract. To this, a generous amount of Indian jasmine absolute accented with EOs of ylang ylang, sandalwood, spices and more, our house made precious gardenia enfleurage from our homegrown flowers, saffron CO2, aged patchouli, a variety of attars, amber and a very light addition of oud has been added. It is sweet, creamy, slightly spicy, softly incensey, a little powdery and the white floral notes are delicate but very intoxicating and detectable, especially on initial application. All of the floral notes used in this blend are natural and smell heavenly. White Feather is loaded with precious and costly ingredients and this perfume was intended to be luxurious, something to be savored. If you like real jasmine grandiflorum absolute from India, saffron, sweet incense, vanilla, a medley of spices and nuances of oud and rich earthy patchouli, White Feather is for you.
White Feather is a very generously fragranced treasure. Apply sparingly at first and add more per preference as desired.
Please note that due to the rising cost of the botanicals used in this blend, the price has increased from its original price of $125 (introduced in 2015) to $140.
