04 Halcyon Perfume
Welcome to our new perfume library! Years in the making, inspired by beautiful, unique words, this new collection of natural perfume has been created for one to layer, merge together, apply ritually, creating their own unique signature scent.
Our own smell is personal to us, and completely unique. How we smell is predetermined, and comes from the same genes which determine our body’s tissue type. We all have our ‘scent blind spots’, smells which we cannot pick up. This means that we all smell things differently, and the scents we enjoy are entirely unique to us.
Since time immemorial, people have approached fragrance ritualistically, layering on multiple oils, or attars. To have the most surprising effect, it’s important to blend fragrances that have diverse facets. Some scents that you can’t put together in the same bottle or formula, because they’re too extreme and turn out smelling horrible, are actually wonderful when you blend them in a layering process. Perfume layering is the best way to explore new aromas, merging untraditional ingredients to create one’s personal story upon the flesh.
What does your story have to say?
04 halcyon ~ (adj.) calm and peaceful; happy, prosperous.
Citrus • Herbal • Musk • Spice
Holy basil, cassia, green cardamom bud with blood orange, saffron & ambrette musk in a chaparral leaf infused base.
This sparkles with all the spright created by the citrus notes, however basil grounds it & gives it more depth. A youthful, joyful and almost extroverted type of scent. The opening is a sharp bright affair of freshly cut limes, mandarins and a little bergamot zested lightly over the top.
Refreshing & uplifting, it doesn’t end there; holy basil emerges giving a gorgeous green leafy undertone with a luxurious, relaxed vibe that feels very familiar, warm, citrus and clean.
Strong & independent yet empathetic, this settles into a smooth, sensuously light & spicy scent lending a warm, cozy character that is simply addictive. This is something you wear when you are about to present your brilliant ideas & you want people to listen, be fascinated, and agree to them.
Use ritually to anoint oneself, candles and other objects.
