In a botanical fragrance session we will compose a professional bespoke botanical perfume or fragrance with my mini perfume organ, filled with ethically sourced, exquisite and rare perfume ingredients. Experience over 100 essential oils, absolutes, co2s and other extracts carefully sourced. Perfume making is an ancient art that has been used extensively in medicine and magic. Derived from Latin “per fumas” meaning through smoke, perfume comes in many forms, such as balms, sprays, incense, and oils. The power of scent is one of our most potent senses, with the ability to bring forth memories, feelings, sensations, and healing. Olfactory science is fascinating and extensive. Learning how to compose well balanced fragrance properly takes time, much like crafting a song, or a painting. Base, heart, and top notes, fixatives and bridges, all in specific ratios and bases make a scent that smells beautiful, lasts and evolves over time, synergizing with your energy and vibe. This process can be as quick as one session, or longer over the course of a month (or more, per client request) to get the end product perfect. Taken a step further, with the use of natural ingredients and a little alchemical know how, we also bring together the spirit and energetic qualities of each ingredient, and where they come from, in the form of a fragrance language, and prayers to the universe. Desired effects can be as simple or complex as needed. Working a perfume offering can be a deeply spiritual experience, if you choose. The ritual of formulating concept to final product culminates in having more than something that simply smells lovely, it also becomes your daily anointing and dedication to yourself, the world, your patron saints, gods, your prayers and wishes. Observing the ritual anointing of self is part of this magical process. By request, we can create perfume from ingredients you grow or harvest in your garden, or other special areas, or with astrological corespondents, to positively influence the energetic qualities of your signature blends.
Client answers to the questionnaire with the direct process of creation. Sometimes the fragrances are straight forward and present quickly and easily, almost immediately.

Formulating a blend is a creative process akin to creating a song or a painting, each layer bringing nuances and subtleties of individual parts into a perfectly orchestrated whole. My Custom Botanical Fragrance consultation questionnaire is meant to inspire the imagination while outlining exactly those qualities you are envisioning for your own custom fragrance. Feel free to elaborate or add any extra information to my consultation.
