Caramel Phlox ☽•☾ All the star shaped flowers from my 2019 tinctures of 12 unique cultivars of sweet summer phlox that I grow from seed (see images of my garden). The varieties range in scent from musk melon to vanilla cake and brown sugar. I charged my tinctures with new blossoms daily from July to the end of October. Then I aged the various phlox extraits for 6 months in handmade amber mélanges to exaggerate flowers' heady, chewy dessert aroma. Vegan. Color may vary.

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.
