Description

Clean linens, a seaside footpath, a salty breeze rolling over heather and ferns.

Selected notes: lavender, bergamot, oakmoss, tonka bean, linden and mimosa blossoms.


Unisex. Cool, fresh, and clean. Anchored by salty, earthy oakmoss and crafted with flinty resins and sunlit flowers, this lavender-forward fougère is structured around the classic triad of lavender, bergamot, and oakmoss. A scent of spring awakening. Eau de parfum strength.


All-natural, made from essential oils, botanical absolutes, and tinctures in a base of organic sugar cane alcohol. No synthetics, period. This close range fragrance will keep near to your body and will evolve as you wear it. Because this fragrance contains no synthetic fixatives, it will not linger as long as conventional perfumes — reapply every few hours or as often as you like, as an olfactory ritual. This fragrance is rich in botanical ingredients. If you have concerns about allergies, consider a patch test or speak to your doctor. As with any product, discontinue use if you experience irritation or sensitivity.


Available in a few different sizes. The sample atomizer is 1 ml in a 3 ml bottle. (Special note: Sourcing bottles and atomizers has been a challenge during the pandemic! Your sample vial may be different than described -- possibly a 1 ml sample, in a 4 ml bottle, so it will look three-quarters empty. This is normal, and be assured that I package each and every sample by weight. Thanks for your understanding!)



ABOUT PRIYA MEANS LOVE PERFUMES:

I never had a habit of wearing perfume until making my own, because of synthetics, which are ubiquitous in the perfume industry. Synthetics lend perfumes a heavy, jangly quality — they're the reason that perfume tends to smother an entire room and linger forever, and they're responsible for masking a person's own unique, delicious, human scent. Over the last decade I've found that synthetic perfumes make me feel physically ill as well, exacerbating my fibromyalgia, and I'm far from alone in this sensitivity.

My perfumes are different — they are utterly all natural, made only from botanical essential oils, handmade tinctures, and absolutes, most of which are organic or wildharvested, in a base of grain alcohol or organic jojoba oil. No synthetic fragrances, nitromusks, pthalates, or fillers — no synthetics, period, in keeping with everything I make.

These scents are designed to be close range perfumes — close to the skin, they are to be enjoyed by you in an unexpected drift of scent as you turn your head or at a gesture, and by those who have the privilege to be very near you. They are clean, soft, and intimate — they say 'come closer.'

I aim to make true perfumes, complex blends that paint an olfactory picture, with lingering, close-to the skin base notes, fulsome heart notes, and effervescent head notes. Natural perfumes build on the ultimate base note of your own skin — they will smell different, and evolve differently, on each wearer. This perfume is rich in botanical ingredients, so if you have concerns about allergies, consider a patch test or speak to your doctor, and feel free to contact me if you have any concerns.

Unlike synthetic perfumes, natural perfumes unfold over time — initially you experience the head notes, then the heart, and over time the base notes linger on the skin for hours. I love this dynamic quality, how the scent is constantly evolving, never monotonous — and I like how this changing sensory input makes you take notice of the moments as they pass by. Because this perfume contains no synthetic fixatives, it will not linger as long as conventional perfumes — reapply every few hours, or as you please, as an olfactory ritual, rooting you in the present moment.

I make these perfumes with a sense of wonder and reverence for the magic of aromatic plants. I hope you feel a sense of wonder and beauty wearing it.
