Orange Blossom Soliflore ☽•☾ natural perfume

a l c h e m y ☽•☾

Concentrated orange blossom natural perfume with in house enfleurage and absolutes. A gorgeous pot of sunshine the color of red yolk and the texture of marmalade glacé, golden sugar paste, or crystallized orange blossom honey. The aroma is intensely indolic, sweet, and musky with the live fruit essence of orange rind and watery flesh. Honeyed, animalic, and exotic, the scent is rich in indoles, with glossy tea notes. It is warm, delicate, and sensuous, with green apparitions of neroli flickering over the heavier indoles. The soliflore is headier than the enfleurage (also available in house). It is more piquant, exotic, intoxicating thanks to the inclusion of organic orange blossom absolutes I made from the flowers in my perfume gardens. Limited quantity.

About the Enfleurage Component ☽•☾

An organic, handmade, botanical soliflore (single note). This solid perfume has been produced by hand using the slow artisanal process of cold enfleurage from my personal orange trees. Please note, this is indeed a truly organic and pure floral fragrance-- a rarity. Honeyed, animalic, and exotic, the scent is rich in indoles, possessing notes of tea and musk. It is warm, delicate, and sensuous, with green apparitions of neroli flickering over the heavier indoles.

Literally, "in flower," enfleurage is a very traditional and pure method of extracting fragrance, utilizing only fat and plant material. To learn more about the enfleurage process generally and at Wild Veil, please continue reading the section below. Here, I have used enfleurage to capture the the periodic blooming of orange blossoms. This "pommade" (highly scented solid perfume-- not to be confused with pomade for hair!) consists of hundreds of individual organic orange blossoms that I gathered from my perfume gardens, laid onto an emulsion of organic avocado butter and raw beeswax. I repeated this process to reach a high degree of fragrance saturation. Each repetition is a "charge," and this enfleurage was charged the traditional 36 times. The aroma possesses the unmistakable signature of a white flower extraction: intensely indolic, sweet, and musky. It is very much the opposite of the shrill, overpowering version of a synthetic floral you find at the fragrance counter. Only you and those closest to you will be able to smell it. Apply to pulse points.
