Includes:

 

Lilas eau de toilette - Lilac perfume water

The elusive lilac scent is one that is incredibly difficult to capture in perfumery especially that of the natural origin. The petals are simply too delicate to distill and tincturing and enfleurage techniques are too labor-intensive to produce on a large scale. On top of all that the resulting scent simply will not last long on the skin. However, the challenges of capturing the lilac scent make it all the more appealing and the result that much more beautiful. To begin the process, I first created a lilac tincture of the blossom petals making sure not to include any part of the stem as this would spoil the end result. I then filtered the concoction and replenished the blossoms every few days for a couple of weeks until a noticeable scent was present. I then carefully enhanced the tincture with other precious floral extractions, a delicate base accord making sure to not overpower the lilac scent and floral hydrosols. The resulting scent is in my opinion on par with the true scent of blossoming lilacs. The scent will not last as long as most perfumes, just like the fleeting lilac season, making them all the more special. 

25ml of perfume presented in a 50ml black glass bottle with an atomizer. 

 

Midsummer Hair Powder - with nettles, violets, and iris root.

A seasonal herbal hair powder to freshen soiled locks. Freshly powdered locally foraged nettles, violet leaf, and iris root mix with silky rice powder and arrowroot. Lightly scented with nettle absolute, clary sage, violet leaf, and frankincense.  Available in a light or dark version. The darker version is the same formula with added organic raw cacao that lends to the appearance and scent of this formula.

Rêves d'Armoise - Mugwort Perfume Oil

A very special mugwort distillation supported by notes of immortelle, hay, and lavender absolute. Sunny, herbaceous, warm, and somewhat animalic. 

Mugwort is regarded as a plant with protective powers and is planted in witch's gardens to guard them. 

A garland or girdle of mugwort can be worn while dancing around the midsummer balefire and thrown into the fire at the end of the night to ensure protection throughout the year.

This herbaceous summer scent can be worn as a protective oil or used as an aid in divination or astral projection.
