Peach Iris ☽•☾ enfleurage perfume
a l c h e m y
A lean ode to Iris Gris with the addition of apricot and osmanthus. It also has my favorite neon rose: Anatolian. Solid perfume only. Color may vary.
Making Peach Iris is a two part process, first blending a base of three types of enfleurage and a floral wax, then mixing in natural extracts at the right %.
Notes in Peach Iris include peach, apricot, Anatolian rose, orris root, osmanthus, bergamot, 3 extracts of Jasmine sambac, ambergris, musk, Santalum album, cedar, violet, Haitian vetiver, two types of tuberose, heliotrope, lilac, clove and Stephanotis floribunda.
The opening is tangy and vibrant: ripe peach, electric rose, and then an inky flood of orris root. About 3 hours in it starts to calm to an amber, musk, and sandalwood dry down. The orris becomes less inky and more powdery, and the rose behind a peachy sweetness of osmanthus, tuberose, and a flock of flowers.

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.
