Virgo and the Green Cipher ☽•☾ enfleurage perfume
a l c h e m y ☽•☾
Green musk. The scent of unguent smeared onto skin that has gotten sweaty from lying in the grass under the late August sun. Vegetative chew with ruminant keratin backnote.
My organic enfleurage of jasmine tobacco flowers (Nicotiana alata) that I grew from open pollinated seed, blended with the pointed floral odor of fragrant screwpine (Pandanus odorifer), wild tree mosses harvested in the old growth forest at my home, ancient smelling ointment, herbs with a dank musk profile, and my handmade grassy, ammonia-like absolute of the wool from a California ewe.
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.
