Perfumes from Nature 

The Floral Family:

3 floral perfumes bottled
  • The most popular perfume type, incorporating a wide range: from soft narcissus, to heady jasmine. Some emit the scent of just one flower, from start to end, and these are the soliflores. More commonly, one flower is prominent, but with complementary companion flowers. Alternatively, a whole bouquet can open at once, or gradually unfold. These are the florals most likely to also contain woody or oriental notes. 
  • Any floral scent will be a perfumer’s interpretation of the flower. But in natural perfumery, we use the actual constituents, found in the flower oils, from which to build the scent. Not all plants produce an oil we can extract, like lily or freesia, so we use constituents from various similarly scented plants, to get an approximation. If a perfume were just a single essential oil, it would be very one dimensional and unlikely to develop when worn. It is down to the perfumer to emphasise a certain aspect and create a mood. 
  • Fruit & gourmand perfumes
  • The Fruit/Gourmands Family
What Distinguishes Fruits and Gourmands?
These are designed to evoke the sensations of warmth and pleasure associated with eating or drinking. These typically have bright and fresh top notes, such as citrus or fruit, to balance the sweeter base notes, which are the more prominent and long-lasting. Often rich, luxurious and decadent.

These fragrances tend to evoke feelings of freshness and vibrancy. The fruity notes can range from citrus to sweet and succulent, and often include orange, lemon, blackcurrants, apples, figs, and tropical fruit. These typically open with a refreshing and invigorating effect. The heart can be more subtle and include floral or herbal accords and the base is often woody or sweet musk.

Animal Testing: We have never worked with suppliers based in countries where testing on animals is legal. We are vehemently against any cruelty to animals and have lobbied for a ban in the past. It is now illegal to test on animals in most countries - in the UK and USA all perfumes are 'cruelty free' - it is not a choice, it is a legal requirement.
However, manufacturing sustainably is still a choice. We have always chosen to do it this way. We leave the lightest footprint we can and examine our practice and process regularly. First and foremost is the quality of our products and how to produce them using sustainable crops.
