Nā'ū 15 ☽•☾ Forest gardenia natural perfume. I made Nā'ū 15 in honor of near extinct Gardenia brighamii, an endemic native Hawaiian gardenia. At present, only 15 to 19 of these trees exist in the Hawaiian islands, with only two of them being wild. Nā'ū 15 is composed from my homemade tinctures, based in organic plantbased alcohol. Notes: gardenia extrait from my enfleurage of over 40 plants, gardenia and wild native tree moss co-tincture, hibiscus musk, `iliahi tincture (Kauai forest sandalwood), brown jasmine rice tincture, forest incense, summer long tinctures of old roses from my perfume gardens (damascena, moss, musk, alba, and gallica), and sweet incense candle. Vegan. Color may vary.
Photos: my organic gardens with gardenia jasminoides and rosa damascena (damask rose); my in house organic absolute of Thai brown jasmine rice from a long term tincture; liquid perfume in 5ml amber glass bottle, and liquid perfume in 5ml and 10ml black violet glass roller ball bottles.

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.

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.
