Lilac Wine ☽•☾ enfleurage perfume
a l c h e m y ☽•☾
My longest lasting lilac composition, Lilac Wine is an effervescent lilac fougère (fern) set upon purple hay with rocks and soda. Made with my own lilac enfleurage, a tender, green, and completely organic extraction handmade in Vermont. Fresh, juicy bergamot. Sun-soaked tonka hay. Fine and dark patchouli along with a trio of vetiver (smoky, lush, musky) finishes on the skin warm, deep, and husky. Sultry sandalwood offsets wry, cool lilac. Like a late afternoon lilac cocktail enjoyed in the stables after a day of riding. Tends toward devious. For any gender. Solid perfume only. Color may vary. Wild Veil's lilac enfleurage is an organic whole plant perfume made using the traditional method of cold enfleurage of fresh lilac flowers from my family's 35 year old heirloom French lilacs.

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.
