Tropic of Hermes ☽•☾ enfleurage perfume
a l c h e m y ☽•☾
Cotton candy blue gum, green banana skin, guava juice and grapefruit. Hyacinth flowers the size of pineapples. Flying blue-gold gardenia saucers, reflecting the sky in azurite crevices, pistil and stamens the colors of crocetin and mimosa dust.
My organic co-enfleurage of gardenia jasminoides, high-fragrance hyacinth, jasmine grandiflorum, and cabbage rose flowers from my gardens; blended with mimosa, pink citrus, tropical rhizomes, blue tree leaves, Indian agarwood attar, and wild Borneo camphor.
Solid perfume only. 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.

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.
