Red Riding Hood ☽•☾ botanical fragrance
a l c h e m y ☽•☾
Rosy, musky, herbal oud. Rose red hood, wolf wood, dark woods. Anatolian rose's antique papery edges are flanked by Haitian vetiver's rosy grass. Beneath is a dark, complicated Indian oud: mold, herbs, and fermented cheese underscore the savory, cool beauty of Turkish rose. This wolf in rosy clothing is vegan. A strong bite for any gender. Color may vary.
This fragrance is part of my fairy tale series: Sleeping Beauty, Red Riding Hood, Witch, Allerleirauh, Snow White, Bluebeard’s Wife, Rapunzel, Gretel, Rose Red, Briar Rose, Mermaid, Feeding Hansel, Unicorn, and Sea Witch.
Photos: solid perfume in a 30ml pot; moss roses after a rain in my organic gardens of old roses; some of my handmade date and raisin absolutes; and freshly harvested fir balsam resin from dripdowns in the old growth forest at my home (no trees harmed; I never pierce fir blisters, tap trees, or interfere with wound healing on any conifers, but only collect the resin drips that have fallen down the trunk below the injury).

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.
