Skin: Masculine ☽•☾ natural cologne

a l c h e m y ☽•☾
Masculine skin notes radiating from an intense golden elixir. This cologne will smell different on everyone, amplifying your own unique skin scent. With very little to no top note, Skin is intended to bloom with subtlety like the gradual heat rising off of skin. This one starts out with a hefty dose of leather, dry rubbed with cumin and Szechuan pepper. After a moment, buttery leather curtains like silk part over my spicy, musky, handmade bushman candle absolute. Below the incense, something phenolic pools, almost like gasoline under a desert sky. More like gasoline stained cowboy boots. Not the skin of the leather, but the skin beneath the leather, burnished and intimate. Visible warm waves ripple on the edge of perspiration, fanning the skin to keep beads of sweat at bay. There is just the living, slightly damp aroma of outdoor skin cooling itself, vascular, veins pulsing over muscles. A rough, unshaven neck, clean but flecked with dust from a desert farm. Although Skin: Masculine contains masculine energetics, it can be worn by any gender. Vegan.

Skin: Masculine is set in organic alcohol. Available in a sample size of 1ml (25 drops), which comes in a glass sample vial with applicator. Or choose from larger 3ml, 5ml or 10ml clear glass vials with atomizers. Or a 10ml frosted glass roller ball, convenient for travel. Please make your selection from the menu.

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.
