World ☽•☾ botanical petrichor fragrance
*As of January 2023 World has been reformulated as an expression of petrichor that is osmanthus heavy and humid, rather than dark and camphoraceous, its previous interpretation.
a l c h e m y ☽•☾
Elemental aroma of earth. Petrichor, the electric note of stones anticipating moisture, and soil after rainfall, rises in wet vapors from sandali mitti (baked earth attar). A rumor of wet flowers + fossils. The feeling of stepping on musky damp peat in a forest. This harmonic elixir centers on the fullness of the cosmos, synthesis, and astral digestion. For any gender. Vegan. Color may vary.
n o t e s ☽•☾
Osmanthus fragrans, Nepali flower, Immortelle, Curcuma longa, Silver fir, Hiba cedar, Patchouli (aged 12 years), Agarwood attar (aged 5 years), Mehndi attar (henna in sandalwood, aged 4 years).

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.
