2020 Hindsight is a nose-expanding gender neutral fragrance set in organic alcohol. Its arid, animalic hind quarters go swish-swish, roaming milk grass slopes of the Alishan Mountains. On the other side of the pass basins fry low slung succulent flesh under the desert sun. Antigone will identify this vegetable carrion on the outskirts of town. Heart opening botanicals autopsy the chest. Be careful your jubilant rose colored glasses will mesmerize you like Mabuse's eyes.

Wild Veil natural perfumes are composed by me, Abby, using homemade, wildcrafted and organic aromatics in Vermont. These include my handmade enfleurage, tinctures, enfleurage extraits, absolutes, resinoids and concretes, and floral waxes. I spend as much time growing plants and foraging as I do composing perfumes.

The best way to experience a natural perfume is to apply it to well-moisturized skin, without rubbing in (absorption only shortens the wear time of fragrance) and without scrubbing off. Natural perfumes are dynamic and take a minimum of 2 hours to reach their final stage, or dry down. Enjoy the alchemical changes as they unfold from the initial intensity of top notes, to the warmth of the heart, to the depth of lower base notes.
