Feeding Hansel ☽•☾ solid natural perfume

He asked the witch if he could stay: her cottage was quiet, warm, and deep. Wanting to lose his way, Hansel fed on the edible forest. He picked wild blackberries and sipped her tea, smoked by the swamp cedar logs. They ate wild fungi and made muscatel moonshine from the fen. However, without noticing he was changing, suspicion crept in like twilight. Hansel started to believe the witch was poisoning him. What had been to him her creature comforts twisted into a source of terror as he wondered if all that was delightful was actually deadly.
Feeding Hansel is a botanical, solid perfume from handmade absolutes and resinoids, including: old growth swamp cedar, muscatel, wild balsam poplar bud, wild eastern cottonwood bud, wild quaking aspen bud, blackberries, spices, incense, fire tea, mountain tears, henna attar, boreal reishi.

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.

Wild Veil oil perfumes are suspended in an odorless base of organic MCT coconut oil. As they do not contain water, liquid perfumes do not expire, and may improve with age. While the volatile top notes (the ones that hit your nose first) will fade after a year or more, the base and heart notes will deepen and grow more complex.

In solid perfumes this silky transparent base (above) mingles beautifully with the earthy, honey musk of organic beeswax. Raw beeswax traps the aroma molecules, releasing them over time for an intimate experience.

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.
