Oceanic sample set with 8 Wild Veil natural perfumes and colognes: Annabel Sea, Beach Lotus, Big Sur, Cancer, Fire Opal, Mermaid, Narwhal, and Vanilla Ocean.

Annabel Sea - Feminine ode to ambergris set in attar and oud. While a siren's scent of blood orange forms the bright top note, Annabel Sea is mostly heart and oceanic depths. Sparkling sugandha kokila dances in a bay of tropical vanilla Madagascar and chests of labdanum powder. Petrichor and patchouli bring rain and earth from attar mitti (baked earth attar) and leaves. Dry roasted seashells and musky dehnal oud (agarwood attar) mingle with seaweed absolute in a beach pyre. Precious ambergris extends the dry down, leaving your skin as touched by a lover warmed by the brine and sun. A deep sea bride floating in a mourning tide, a monument of sun-bleached driftwood. Gender neutral.

Beach Lotus - Seaweed weds lush pink lotus and delicate neroli blossoms in this briny floral musk. Opening with a sharp dash of kelp, dark green and oceanic, floral citrus follows as this dynamic scent begins to unfold. Fluid, like the ocean, Beach Lotus moves into suave territory with lotus and olive. Just when you think the scent has settled, another tide moves in. Vanilla Madagascar undulates in beachy waves over smoky almandine amber from vetiver and tonka. East Indian sandalwood softens the dry down and adds a woodsiness to sea and caramel earth as Beach Lotus becomes an oceanic skin scent. Gender neutral.

Big Sur - West coast mysticism. A winding drive through rugged California paradise. Waves crash on the Douglas fir bluffs and mineral hot springs steam in an amber orange grove. Incense, seaweed, and patchouli ring the beach. Sauna wood and white sage linger on the skin in a warm, spiritual cleanse. Gender neutral.

Cancer - Mood of saline grasses winking against a black iris ocean. Oceanic, herbaceous, grassy, powdery. Gender neutral.

Fire Opal - Not for the faint of heart, Fire Opal is an avant-garde umami perfume centered upon the idea of ocean terroir, featuring fungi, savory-sweet notes, dégoût, and sea foam. Shimmering sea weeds and tropical woods plummet to bloomy cèpes depths. Tinctures of kombu, sea oak, and Irish moss showcase the ocean terroir of each. Kombu is saltwater and kelp shallows, sashimi shimmy. Iris moss is a cedar chest, leather, and ancient marine green. Sea oak is tannic fertilized algae eggs. Wet seashells mirror the crumpled husks of long and white pepper. Shiitake and penny bun sketch not the forest floor, but chlorine, yeast, dirt, and beef broth. Rosy, grassy jamarosa root overgrows a santal heart teeming with balsams, resins and saffron. Musk mallow and myrrh ointment twist through a precious woods and fungi dry down. Fire Opal features my 2 year tinctures of cured peppers, various seaweeds, and mushrooms. Vegan. Fire Opal is set in organic my organic long term tinctures. Gender neutral.

Mermaid - Undersea minx. Ocean floor pin-up. Grotto babe. Seaweed, plumeria and orange blossoms in her hair, Madagascar vanilla thighs, patchouli pout. An amulet on her chest contains a lagoon of amber. Cool ocean alternates with warm florals over mermaid musk.

Narwhal - A strange deep sea creature lost in temperate waters. Shipwrecked santal and cedrat Nepal, burnished golden by the sun on beeswax polish, bobs among ambergris flotsam. Warm, sweet, briny and woody. Sharp and resinous, a gnarled ancient amber tusk pierces mammalian skin. Keratin worn into old ivory. Waveform. Gender neutral.

Vanilla Ocean - A light, refreshing and briny floral vanilla. Sea spray, orange blossoms, and rose swirled with wild dark clove bud. Bright, fruity vanilla and clove bud from Madagascar complement a cool compress of Moroccan rose and neroli. A mellow citrus aura vibrates around a woman with alien, feral flesh rising from the ocean waves. Liquidambar and beachcast ambergris from Madagascar bind into a feminine alchemy both marine and carnal.

Each liquid perfume comes in a 1ml clear glass perfume vial with an applicator cap. These are samples of approximately 20-25 drops, enough for 4-6 wears, per perfume. All eight fragrances will have handwritten labels, and they arrive nested inside a gift box filled with flowers, mosses, and plants that I have pressed and dried. Include any gift message to the recipient in an email to abby@wildveil.com when ordering, and I will hand write your message.

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. For more information on how to wear natural perfumes, see my "About" shop section.
