Hecate ☽•☾ natural perfume

a l c h e m y ☽•☾
Hecate, like the titular sorceress who often appears tripled, is a changeable but powerful botanical fragrance with outstanding tenacity for a natural blend. The heady aroma of herbs and camphor charges forth at first breath-- a wreath of lemon, rosemary, and surprising eucalyptus. After fifteen minutes to an hour these sharper notes stop writhing, and settle onto a cedar forest floor amidst glowing coals of myrrh and incense. The cedar is incredibly deep, a magical wood loom of sweet white, floral Himalayan, and furry Atlas. As cloven hooves tromp across pads of basil, delicate anise oil gets squeezed from the green velvet. In the dry down that lasts and lasts (more than a day, on my skin and clothing), Hecate becomes a smoky, earthy amber, but no less unusual, perfume. A winding, dark road of patchouli, labdanum, tonka, and leather lead into an everlasting frankincense night. A strange one, that I myself cannot stop sniffing.
As is her dynamic essence, Hecate can transform to be worn by any gender. The liquid version is vegan while the solid perfume has the addition of raw beeswax.

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.
