Not for the faint of heart, Fire Opal is an avant-garde umami perfume centered upon the idea of ocean terroir, featuring fungi, savory-sweet notes, dégoût, and sea foam. Shimmering sea weeds and tropical woods plummet to bloomy cèpes depths. Tinctures of kombu, sea oak, and Irish moss showcase the ocean terroir of each. Kombu is saltwater and kelp shallows, sashimi shimmy. Iris moss is a cedar chest, leather, and ancient marine green. Sea oak is tannic fertilized algae eggs. Wet seashells mirror the crumpled husks of long and white pepper. Shiitake and penny bun sketch not the forest floor, but chlorine, yeast, dirt, and beef broth. Rosy, grassy jamarosa root overgrows a santal heart teeming with balsams, resins and saffron. Musk mallow and myrrh ointment twist through a precious woods and fungi dry down. Fire Opal features my 2 year tinctures of cured peppers, various seaweeds, and mushrooms. Vegan.
Fire Opal is set in organic my organic long term tinctures. Available in a sample size of 1ml (25 drops), which comes in a glass sample vial with applicator. Or choose from larger 3ml, 5ml or 10ml clear glass vials with atomizers. Or a 10ml frosted glass roller ball, convenient for travel. Please make your selection from the menu.

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.
