Hermit ☽•☾ botanical tarot fragrance
a l c h e m y ☽•☾
Zodiacal trump of Virgo. Go into the darkness to find the light. The Hermit, keeper of codes, keys and ciphers, is an encrypted chypre (a classical perfume accord comprising oakmoss, labdanum, bergamot and usually patchouli). Opulent, dense, mysterious, and curious, this analyst emerges from green depths carrying a burning beacon of illumination. Linden blossom, geranium and elemi glow-- a pulsing orb of lemon pepper, incense, and lime flowers-- on a tangled bed of iris and angelica roots. Darkly feminine and rich in herbal knowledge, Hermit is for any gender. The liquid version is vegan and 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.
