Simple round tin:
There is approximately 5.3 grams or 0.186 ounces of natural perfume by weight. The round cases are manufactured and finished in America by a small family owned business. The compact measures 1-5/8" diameter x 1/2" deep.
I pour each solid perfume into a separate vinyl coated aluminum pan that fits inside with the metal compact. This ensures lasting performance of this pure, natural, botanical perfume and the option to replace with a fresh tin when all used up. The compact is placed in a hand crochet teal pouch contained within a purple box adorned with a ribbon as a gift to your self or someone special.
ABOUT the FRAGRANCE - SIERRA SOLID PERFUME
Main notes: Fir, Vanilla and Spice
Profile: Sweet, spicy gourmand
In ancient times those that honored the earth decorated their homes or temples with boughs of evergreen trees. The evergreens represented magical powers during a time when all other plant life died or hibernated. This solid perfume, with it's plethora of plant essences derived from the leaves, needles, barks and resins of the trees is perfect for those tuned to our woody green friends.
“Trees are the earth’s endless effort
to speak to the listening heaven.”
~ Rabindranath Tagore
I first formulated this fragrance years ago with the intention of "prosperity" in mind. I began with the idea of Frankincense and Myrrh, since these two essences are linked with tales of the spice trails and gifts to the newly born Christ child. It is said that both frankincense and myrrh were considered more valuable than gold. The scented ointments found in Tut'ankhamun's tomb when it was first opened in 1922 contained ample quantities of frankincense, myrrh and cedarwood.
