The Garden of Ether. Fog, petrichor stupor, geosmin, mist-succored hills. Breadseed vapors and opium milk for the suckling gas. Seed to earth to flower to liquid to breath to pod to seed. Vegan and gender neutral, Poppy Tears is a composition from my own extractions, based in high proof organic alcohol. Color may vary.

* Ornamental opium poppies like those used in this perfume contain little or no opiate alkaloids. Even so, my tincture is of the flowers, not the seed pods. The formation of seed pods occurs after the flowers go to seed, and seed pods are the part of the plant that produces the alkaloid-containing latex from which opium is derived. In other words, this poppy tincture does not contain opiates.

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.
