15 Orenda 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?
15 orenda ~ (n.) the spiritual power that people and animals inherit from their environment.
Old Growth Trees • Forest Floor
Deep shadows, creaking bending trunks, cracking branches, damp moss, closed skies, entwined roots, all consuming deep damp old growth forest. Revered enchantment of ancient redwood, cedars, firs, pines & other damp green earthly incantations.
This scent is feral and it’s raging and it’s protective and it’s enveloping and it’s sacred and it is safe. Every pulsating green vein of life in a bottle; vital existence of life on earth distilled into a magical formula encased within a protective vessel.
There is an ancient power here and it is yours.
Use ritually to anoint oneself, candles and other objects.
