OUR INGREDIENTS


PURELY BOTANICAL AND BIOLOGICS

Creating our fragrances starts with curating rare and vibrantly beautiful materials. As we handcraft each perfume, we carefully select each ingredient based on its fragrance and its intrinsic benefit. We then take steps to enhance the feeling and effect of the perfume, ensuring that it is just right before we cellar it to reach its smooth and unique symphony.

WHOLE AROMATICS

Whole aromatic oil that is extracted from various raw organic materials and has the following qualities:

  • Richer and more complex, multiple notes in one
  • Not “sheer”; has a full-bodied feel and smell
  • Natural smelling and feeling;  may contain ‘earthy’ notes
  • Incomparable to a synthetic or natural isolate in smell
  • More balanced and balancing to the body
  • Of greater ‘plant intelligence’ (Synergistic)
  • Rarely clear in color but commonly richly pigmented

NATURAL ISOLATES

A single constituent of the whole aromatic oil, obtained by advanced extraction techniques and has the following qualities:

  • Largely a one-note fragrance
  • More ‘sheer’, lighter, and simple in smell
  • Less natural smelling than a whole aromatic
  • Similar to a synthetic in smell but commonly more beautiful
  • Not balancing to the body
  • Of less ‘plant intelligence’ (Non-Synergistic)
  • Low in pigments.  Commonly clear in color

SYNERGY

Where the effect is greater (and often safer) than either a single part or the sum of the parts.  It refers to the intelligent powers of the [cooperative] whole. 

The term may be applied in various, relative contexts.  For example, a whole, fresh plant (leaf, root, stem, flower, fruit, seed) has the most synergy.  A natural isolate has no synergy.  Some isolated molecules are removed from some “whole” aromatic extractions as they can cause health problems.  Sometimes most of the molecules in the whole aromatic extraction are removed for improved fragrance.   So, “synergy” is used in a relative way in the context of natural aromatics.

It should be noted that a single, isolated molecule is not inert.  It still has an action.
