Jungle ☽•☾ enfleurage perfume
a l c h e m y ☽•☾
Jungle. Like dropping into the green canopy on a silk parachute. Humidity makes the vines sweat. Clouds of white gardenia bulge through folds of enormous, ruffled banana leaves. Spiky palm fronds fan the fruit of spice plants. The white butterfly lily looks dainty but lower on her white flower aroma pulses the divine femininity of wet earth. Jasmine angel wings douse any flesh that passes by with indolic spirals. Carnivorous plants beckon with shapely, lurid beauty. Further below, a jaguar prowls, leaving her musk amidst the clove and coconuts. Skews feminine. Made with my handmade, organic cardamom, clove, and green pepper absolutes, and my organic gardenia, banana champaca, angel wing jasmine, and ginger lily enfleurage. Solid perfume only. 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.
