ABOUT THE PERFUME

Botanical perfumery (the traditional European method) has been replaced with synthetics over the last century, which lack the depth, emotional benefits, and balance that real plant life possess. For Strange Women perfume revives these nearly forgotten essences with carefully selected plant extractions sourced from around the world. I seek the finest ingredients, usually from sustainably wild-harvested and organic crops, and I support ethically produced and harvested materials.

Natural perfumes are much different to wear than what you will find at a headache-inducing commercial perfume counter. These essences meld with your body chemistry and stay close to the skin. Only you and those you embrace will be aware that you are wearing it. If you are normally "allergic" to perfume, you are likely reacting to the unlisted chemicals that are hidden inside the fragrances (this link explains) http://www.ewg.org/notsosexy. The pure botanical perfumes that I create are safer, more satisfying to the senses, and have subtle healing properties (aromatherapy) that your mind and body will love.

My perfumes also do not contain chemicals to make them last all day, as synthetics do. Instead, the scent wears off in the course of about 3-6 hours, and can be re-applied throughout the day as a sensory ritual. This allows the opportunity to reflect and appreciate the moment, connect with nature through its true essences, and experience the perfume’s evolution in intervals each day.

I hope you love my strange creations.
