Perfumes

A note about my solid fragrances: These are perfumes in a beeswax and jojoba oil base, the consistency being rather like a lip balm.  This can be applied by rubbing a finger over the solid fragrance and applying to pulse points; i.e. wrists, inside of elbows, sides of the neck below the jaw, etc.  Solid fragrances are great for those worried about spillage or breakage of bottles, as they are packaged in recyclable, screw-top tins.  Also convenient for more controlled application of fragrance.


'Fleurs de Belle', a popular sold perfume.  Perfumes are no longer packaged in boxes.



Fragrances are also available in oil form.  These are stronger and longer lasting, as the fragrance blend is more concentrated.  The base is fractionated coconut oil, and currently they come in Art-Deco-style roll-on bottles.


'Belle du Lune' perfume oil, my personal favorite.



Currently, the following fragrances are available:

*Women's Fragrances*

-Fleurs de Belle--Named after a woman of delicate elegance, Fleurs de Belle is a light, powdery fragrance that is modeled after a 1930s perfume. Notes of lily of the valley, lilac, and other florals unite with amber and sandalwood to create a scent that is gentle yet memorable.
(5g solid: $5.50.  Not available as a perfume oil.)

-Evening in Ceylon--Intriguing and seductive. An exotic, mysterious blend of sweet citrus and bergamot, jasmine, carnation, and lily of the valley. A hypnotic union of patchouli, vanilla, and amber make up the base notes. (Inspired by Yves Saint Laurent Opium)
(7g solid: $11.  12g oil: $15.)

-Zahava--Inspired by the legendary perfume "Shalimar," this scent is mystical and classy. Unique notes of orris (iris root) and lemon rest on a powdery base of amber, vanilla, and myrrh.
(7g solid: $11.  12g oil: $15.)

-Bellezza--a magnificent union of orange and lily-of-the-valley, supported by lilac, musk, sandalwood, with a touch of bergamot.  Inspired by a perfume from 1941.
(10g solid: $11.  12g oil: $15.)

-Pavone--Elegant florals of violet, lily, and gardenia enveloped by a sensual base of sandalwood and musk, balanced by uplifting bergamot.
(7g solid: $11.  12g oil: $15.)


-Charmeuse--Silky and elegant, modeled after a 1925 perfume. Opening with refreshing bergamot, it stars sensual ylang-ylang, gardenia, jasmine, and lilac. The base is mainly vetiver and patchouli, with a touch of sweet musk.
(10g solid: $11.  12g oil: $15.)

-Nefertari--Named after the Egyptian queen renowned for her beauty, Nefertari has fruity top notes of fig and pomegranate paired with fresh juniper. Ancient Egypt's precious flowers, lily, lotus, hyacinth, and heliotrope, are followed by a slightly powdery base of frankincense, sandalwood, and a hint of musk.
(10g solid: $12.  12g oil: $15.)

-Belle du Lune--A hauntingly beautiful, sweet composition of citrus, with mysterious narcissus, orris, and violet.  Vanilla and frankincense, with a hint of sandalwood, complete this 1933-inspired fragrance.
(7g solid: $11.  12g oil: $15.)

-Allodola--Meaning 'lark', this fragrance is modeled after the haunting Guerlain 'L'Heure Bleue' of 1912. A spicy-floral starring carnation, vanilla, heliotrope, and frankincense, it is intriguing and exotic. If you like 'Evening in Ceylon', you will like 'Allodola'.
(7g solid: $11.  12g oil: $15.)

-'Jeunesse'--Peach, supported by orange, mingles with orris and violet. Resembling the fresh sweetness of spring, it has woodsy-sweet basenotes of musk and cedar.  Inspired by a 1947 perfume.
(7g solid: $11.  12g oil: $15.)
