This is a very sexy perfume.
This is one of the higher price points of Cimbalom as a solid. Due to the high nature component of these fragrances, the amount of time and resources involved, they are not returnable. Please try a sample of the fragrance before investing in a higher priced item. Individual samples and sets are available here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/IlluminatedPerfume?section_id=5770674 Botanical, natural perfume is a vital item, created by hand with real plant materials.
This vintage, Victorian inspired compact opens to reveal a separate tin pan filled with Cimbalom. When snapped shut, the front of the round shaped compact contains a tapestry design that has a warm antique brass finish. The ornate design is engraved, so you can feel it if you run your finger over it. Pretty and feminine! The compact arrives in a handmade crochet pouch, perfect as a gift, for travel and/or your purse.
The story of this creamy unguent unfolds utilizing many of my very favorite essences. It is a very sensuous natural perfume with an underlying wild, animalic note. Personally, I am addicted to it as our many of my girlfriends and clients. This fragrance in it's first incarnations was titled Birthday Balm and BeBee.
There is approximately 5.3 grams or 0.186 ounces of natural perfume by weight, sometimes quite a bit more. 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.
Here are a few comments:
"Roxana, your "Birthday Balm" is exquisite. When I closed my eyes I was transported to a blossom and incense scented harem. I felt as though I had entered a hidden world of women-- where sensuous secrets are revealed. It is delicate, potent, sexy-- irresistible."
~ D. Alexander
"Hypnotically addicting...can NOT get enough. Wish I could bathe, drink and surround myself w these scents 24/7. More than just winners ; a way of life for those who appreciate themselves."
~ E. Warshavsky
