FAQ

Perfume is volatile (evaporating) and changes with time as it sits on your skin, the chemistry between the smell of each skin and perfume come alive, blooming from one note to the next. Natural perfume in particular is known to have a life of its own, a soul, resulting in a unique wearing experience.

The sensory journey of natural perfume begins with the top notes which last for around 10-30 minutes before the heart notes begin to appear. Heart notes are the soul of the scent and linger for 2-8 hours. The base notes ground the perfume, lasting for 8+ hours.

Natural perfumes will evolve over time and especially in contact with your skin. The chemistry between the smell of each skin and perfume come alive when wearing natural perfumes, resulting in a unique experience. Natural perfumes are lighter, more subtle and never obnoxious. 

Synthetic perfumes are more linear and less changing when in contact with skin but also on paper blotters, clothes, etc. This results in a scent that is basically the same from person to person. Synthetic perfumes are intense, very strong and can cause headaches for the wearer and those around them. 

We love the sun but your perfume doesn't--Keep out of direct sunlight and heat.

The wear time for our Eau de Parfum is 5-8 hours depending on how/where they are applied.

Here are my tips for a lasting wear: 

  • Spray perfume onto pulse points (inner wrists, neck, chest, naval) and clothing for longer wear. 
  • Re-apply throughout the day--your perfume is natural and less powerful than their synthetic perfume counterparts, re-apply mid-day if you want a boost. 
  • Do NOT RUB! instead, spray onto wrists and lightly dab wrists together to diffuse the scent. Rubbing the perfume onto your skin creates friction, which generates heat and “wears out” the perfume more quickly.

Store perfume away from sunlight, heat and moisture--I recommend putting the bottle in a drawer away from a window.
