Nuummite ☽•☾ botanical fragrance

a l c h e m y ☽•☾
I envisioned Nuummite as a black mirror in a magical Bavarian musk forest. This botanical fragrance opens with cool lavender, sacred frankincense, and luscious tuberose, which soon give way to an inky chasm of orris root and animalic oud. I have mixed two exquisite types of Indian oud-- the essential oil which derives from the agarwood tree infected with mold, and dehnal attar-- oud essential oil immersed in Mysore sandalwood oil. Sandalwood, myrrh, and baked earth attar (mitti) meld into a sacred ointment scraped onto forest stone as an offering just prior to a rainstorm. Petrichor's electricity mixes with the black depths of wild black spruce and forested musk in the dry down. For any gender. Vegan.

s i z i n g ☽•☾
Liquid perfumes are available in sizes of 1ml (a sample of approximately 20-25 drops), 5ml, 10ml, and 30ml. All liquid perfumes are packaged in glass vials or glass bottles. 1ml comes in a sample glass perfume vial with an applicator cap. PLEASE READ: 1ML IS A SAMPLE. 5ml and 10ml sizes come in a brown amber glass bottle with a lovely white cap with orifice reducer. 10ml is also available in a frosted glass roller bottle. 30ml is poured into a gorgeous frosted glass bottle with a glass dropper and white cap.

Solid perfumes are available in sizes of 1ml (a sample of approximately 20-25 drops), 5ml and 10ml. 1ml (sample size) comes in a hinge top pod. 5ml comes in a clear glass jar. 10ml is available in a glass jar or a round tin.

Wild Veil natural perfumes are composed by me, Abby, using homemade, wildcrafted and organic aromatics in Vermont. These include my handmade enfleurage, tinctures, enfleurage extraits, absolutes, resinoids and concretes, and floral waxes. I spend as much time growing plants and foraging as I do composing perfumes.

l i q u i d ☽•☾
Wild Veil oil perfumes are suspended in an odorless base of organic MCT coconut oil. As they do not contain water, liquid perfumes do not expire, and may improve with age. While the volatile top notes (the ones that hit your nose first) will fade after a year or more, the base and heart notes will deepen and grow more complex.

s o l i d ☽•☾ b e e s w a x
In solid perfumes this silky transparent base (above) mingles beautifully with the earthy, honey musk of organic beeswax. Raw beeswax traps the aroma molecules, releasing them over time for an intimate experience.

h o w ☽•☾ t o ☽•☾ w e a r
The best way to experience a natural perfume is to apply it to well-moisturized skin, without rubbing in (absorption only shortens the wear time of fragrance) and without scrubbing off. Natural perfumes are dynamic and take a minimum of 2 hours to reach their final stage, or dry down. Enjoy the alchemical changes as they unfold from the initial intensity of top notes, to the warmth of the heart, to the depth of lower base notes. For more information on how to wear natural perfumes, see my "About" shop section.

Returns and exchange details

Due to the nature of the product, all sales are final, meaning: I cannot offer returns, refunds or exchanges. During the summer months I refrigerate orders prior to shipping. If you have ordered something meltable, such as a deodorant, pomade, solid perfume, or cream, I recommend retrieving your package promptly upon receipt, especially if you live in a warm climate. I am not responsible for temperature during transit nor after delivery.

All of my fragrances are available in sample sizes, as well as many of my skin and hair care products. If you are unsure whether a product is right for you, I recommend starting with a small or sample size before committing to a full size. My "few drops" listing for fragrances is a great way to sample a wide array for minimal cost. https://www.etsy.com/listing/291756751/natural-perfume-sample-a-few-drops?ref=shop_home_active_6

Please note some settling is normal with natural products (for example, makeup and deodorants). You are accepting this when you commit to purchase. If you know that you are reactive or allergic to particular ingredients, please check list of ingredients in the product listing and, for fragrances, the "notes." You are responsible for patch testing your product to: 1) ensure safety of use; and 2) screen for known sensitivities or allergies. The inner wrist is typically a safe area for patch testing. And, if you have concerns about an allergy, please contact me prior to placing your order to ensure the product will be safe for your use. I will work with you to customize the right product for you.

Sample widely. Try my "few drops" listing to cast a wide net. Keep an open mind and nose. If you're used to scents at the fragrance counter, you will be in for a recalibration of your sniffer. A "sweet" natural perfume is going to be much earthier and markedly less sweet than what counts as "sweet" in the saccharine, dessert-y, gourmand saturated landscape of contemporary corporate perfumery. Flowery is not necessarily floral, and you may actually love lavender and patchouli.
Longevity will vary from fragrance to fragrance, and person to person. The main factors are fixatives in the composition, and the skin chemistry of the wearer. Generally, you can expect natural perfumes to last from a few hours to several days (on clothing). The longest lasting fragrances tend to be musks, with animal musks outlasting botanical musks by days, even years. A good botanical musk, though, will wear for several days on scarves and sweaters.

To extend the longevity of my fragrances, I offer "fixatives." Fixatives function as primers, creating a barrier that slows the absorption of a perfume into your skin. Simply search "fixative" in my shop, and they will come up.
Apply the fragrance to your skin. I recommend the inner wrist for this. Natural perfumes are truly dynamic creatures, and will often smell dramatically different in the bottle than on your skin. On your skin, it has a chance to warm up, mix with your own chemistry, and move through the stages.
Perfumes unfold over time, based on varying evaporation rates in their aromatic oils. "Stages" are used to describe their wear. To truly understand the character of a perfume, it is important to see it through the three stages, from beginning to end. The first stage is dominated by top notes, the most fleeting, volatile elements. Top notes generally dissipate and recede after the first few minutes, when the fragrance enters the second stage. Here the heart or middle notes come forth. This second stage can last up to an hour before the final stage. This is the dry down or dryout phase, when base notes deepen and complexify the entire composition. I recommend letting a perfume wear at least an hour before deciding it's not for you.
This will vary from person to person, but generally the solid perfumes have greater longevity given that the beeswax traps aroma chemicals and slows their evaporation rate. That said, the solid perfumes may seem like sleepers, growing in intensity over time, whereas the liquid perfumes open with a bang and evaporate more rapidly.
Sillage refers to the scent trail left in the air by the wearer. In natural perfumes, sillage tends to be subtle and intimate. When compared to the sillage of corporate perfumes which can be nauseating, stagnant and one dimensional, the sillage of natural perfumes is often complex and dynamic.

Projection is how far out a perfume projects from the wearer. Again, natural perfumes are intimate affairs. Generally only you and those intimately near you will catch wind of your fragrance. Unlike their corporate counterparts which can be overpowering walls of scent, natural perfumes rarely project beyond a foot,
