Grimoire ☽•☾ botanical fragrance

a l c h e m y ☽•☾
Lush, smoky, dark green. Oakmoss for ages. Grimoire has a vintage opulence you won't find in many modern perfumes, and certainly not in commercial ones. I have incorporated two varieties of the lichen into this blend. The French oakmoss is both earthy and oceanic, with faerie notes of decaying wood, fungus, and forest floor along a powdery marine base. The oakmoss from Serbia and Montenegro conveys intense, green masculinity. Grounding, but dark, mysterious and intense. Deep, dirty earth and black leather as from petrified wood. Together the two elixirs bind into a base with colossal tenacity, at once earthy and otherworldly. The magical facets of oakmoss are drawn out by a chord of tobacco spice and bourbon vanilla. Camphor from patchouli, eucalyptus, elemi and sage puncture the thick green blanket and lift Grimoire out of the dark. A penetrating and evocative anachronism. Can be worn by any gender. 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.

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.
