Choose your favorite solid perfume to arrive inside:

SATIN CORSET features a powdery accord of irises, Stargazer lilies, roses, violets, and mimosa blooms in a soft bed of Bourbon vanilla. This delicate floral musk conjures the feminine image of a Victorian-era corset handmade with ivory satin, laced around a curvaceous form.

VIOLIN IN THE ATTIC features a blended wood base to emulate the instrument’s maple, ebony, rosewood, and spruce body, followed with sweet resins to seal the carved woods. A warm layer of antique amber and frankincense evoke years of rosin dust coating this heirloom while it awaits a new generation to bring it to life.

ANTIQUE SETTEE reveals the past with hints of rose and violet lingering on velvet upholstery from perfumed guests that have come and gone. Polished wood trim is woven with Earl Grey tea spilled on the cushions years ago. The brightness of bergamot and lemon are balanced in the base of tonka and vetiver.

EVERGREEN MOUNTAIN captures the soothing landscape of lavender, Clary sage, and other botanicals blanketing the mountains. Fresh air sweetened with Douglas fir and jasmine lifts a base of balsam and three varieties of Spruce needles. A soft wood note completes this aromatic connection to a majestic and isolated refuge..

NIGHTSHADE GARDEN is a tribute to the midsummer harvest of tomatoes on winding vines with sweet aromatic herbs growing alongside. An uplifting aura of fresh citrus slowly softens into a vivid green base of leaves and vegetable blossoms. This perfume is for the gardeners.

FIRESIDE STORY opens with a trail of woodsmoke carried through the night air from a remote campsite. A blend of aromatic woods are woven with dried leaves, pine cones, and sweet tree resins crackling in the fire. As this warm incense settles into the skin, a soft base of vanilla creates the perfect setting for a ghost story.

FRENCH OAKMOSS is a tree lichen with a dark green, powerfully grounding aroma. It will deepen and extend other natural perfumes when layered with them while imparting a richly textured dry down. This scent is dirty, dry, leathery, and will pull the wearer deep into the forest floor. Lavender and violet leaf absolutes balance the heavy lichen, adding uplifting green tones to the dark base.

WINTER KITTY A blanket of snow evolves to a comforting base of vetiver, woods, and frankincense. A sweet musk of amber, rose and vanilla complete the scent of a kitty returned from a winter walk with chimney smoke and brisk air in his fur.

LAVENDER + CADE
This gorgeous French Lavender oil is paired with cooked juniper wood, known as cade. The smoky undertone balances the soothing deep blue floral for an unexpected but very wearable scent.

MIMOSA + IRIS
A powdery floral lover's dream, the soft and fluffy Mimosa tree flower is anchored with the prized Iris root in this companion perfume. This delicate scent remains close to the body and melds seamlessly with the skin.

PATCHOULI + AMBER
From the depths of the FSW cabinet, we bring you a smooth, well-aged patchouli oil blended into a rich, balsamic amber accord of sweet resins.



To wear, rub a small amount of perfume onto pulse points such as wrists and sides of neck. Your body heat will warm and release the fragrance inside the soft wax.

FAQs

Oil perfumes:

• Top notes easily escape when smelling straight from the bottle and when it is first applied. This creates a vibrant opening to the perfume, but you also must wear it for at least 5 minutes before the true scent settles in.
• These are better sealed inside their bottles, making the perfume able to be stored for a much longer time than the solids.

Solid perfumes:
• Top notes are muted since they are trapped in the beeswax, which releases the scent more slowly (less silage), but the base notes last a little longer on the skin during the dry down.
• Scent is stronger in warm weather and on warm skin, as heat is needed to make the scent evaporate from beeswax
The silage and overall tenacity of each perfume is based more on the specific plant essences in a blend, not the carrier base. Earthy woods, roots, and spices tend to last much longer than delicate florals, herbs, and citrus.

The Moongarden perfumes are twice as concentrated as all the other perfumes so that the delicate floral essences can be as powerful as the other blends.
Our culture tells us that sweet and floral scents are feminine in gender and that woodsy, spicy, musky scents are masculine. I believe that men can wear any scent they are comfortable in, as can women, and plant essences should not be limited by gender. However, if you are looking for a scent that is a bit more woodsy and traditionally masculine, we recommend trying Coyote, Horse, Tarantula, and Fireside Story.
These perfume oils are in a jojoba wax base, and solids are in a beeswax base, so they will not turn rancid. The light floral, citrus, and other delicate top notes may begin to fade within the first year, and often the earthier components will become stronger over several years. Although the scent may change slightly after the first year, it will not expire.
The Lip Embellishments are best if used within 2 years, but they are still safe to use after this. Sometimes if exposed to fluctuating temperatures, the shea butter in these will fractionate, causing a bumpy texture. This does not mean the balm has gone bad, and it is still useable, as the bumps go away when warmed up.

The Rosehip Elixir Oil and Solid both must be stored very carefully (away from heat, sunlight, and oxygen exposure) and used within 6-8 months. The oils in these are fragile and oxidation will occur naturally because we do not put any harsh preservatives in it. The scent will drastically change if the oils go rancid, so this is the best way to determine their expiration.
• To prolong the life of the plant oils, store products in a cool (50-75 degrees F), dry place away from sunlight.
• All FSW products are free of water, which mold and bacteria need in order to grow, so this type of concern is not an issue.
• All perfume oils are in a liquid or solid wax base (not actually oil), so rancidity is also not an issue.
All of our orders are carefully wrapped with beautiful details, and sending a package directly to a gift recipient will be appropriate. If your order is a gift, you may let us know in the notes at checkout to include a short note or to leave out the receipt.
