Pagan ☽•☾ botanical fragrance from handmade tinctures and extraits
a l c h e m y ☽•☾
A barrel of booze sealed with hemlock resin. Rolling around the black-green forest, steeping fir boughs, wild roses and white hyacinth over propolis dregs. Ancient leather straps. A cooper's hustle, flapping like bandages in the wind. Pagan is composition from my own tinctures and extractions of enfleurage, based in high proof organic alcohol. In my opinion, Pagan can be worn by any gender. The rose is musky and wild, and the hyacinth is fresh and astringent. 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.

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.
