This opens with a bright floral accord of rose, gardenia, cyclamen and neroli. The distinct florals make this a typically feminine perfume, but not insubstantial, as the sandalwood, ambrette seed and vanilla add a leather/musk depth. It is long-lasting for a natural perfume, in part due to the woods, and peppery carnation. It works equally well on a summer afternoon as it does on a cool winter evening.
For a rose purist, Rosebud
is similar in structure, but remains rosey throughout without the woody accents; Elfin Glen
is another gentle floral, with bluebells and wildflowers predominant. Or for a really full, bouquet of flowers, Aroma Borealis
should fit the bill.
Named for the Prima Ballerina, Anna Pavlova, who loved carnations and rose.
Style: Fresh floral

All sizes are available in an oil base, rather than alcohol, this will make the scent more intimate; it will sit close to the skin, but lasts about 8-10 hours. We use golden jojoba oil as this is the closest to skin sebum and is least likely to cause any skin irritation. Perfume in oil comes in the same bottles as the ethanol based ones, or a roller-ball bottle, if preferred. Just select ‘oil option’ with the size and concentration you want: for instance EdP 50ml and Oil option.
Available sizes: 10ml, 30ml and 50ml
Eau de Parfum or Pure Perfume/Extrait
Made predominantly from oils, absolutes, extracts and resins.
Pure Perfume sits closer to the skin (the extra alcohol in the EdP makes the scent more volatile). The scent is deeper and lasts longer as a pure perfume. All sizes are also available in oil. Please select the concentration and size and add the oil option to your order.
