The Celtic name of oak is duir, meaning door. It was that native oak of California that inspired this completely natural perfume and opened the door (duir) way to my path as a botanical perfumer.

Small tester sizes of this completely natural perfume devoted to the California oak are available in these sets: http://etsy.me/1gQpKuv

It all began when a contractor attempted to build a three story mansion on the empty lot next to us that had seven native oaks. Besides organizing all the neighbors to attend neighborhood council meetings to protect the trees I engaged my art spirit. On the eve of Beltane I cut some leaves of one of the oaks and infused them for a perfume devoted to the tree. The intention was to save the trees and bring more awareness to these glorious majestic oaks which are native to California.

The trees have been saved and now I make illuminated perfumes with a mission to restore our oneness with the natural world and own essential nature.

The tin contains approximately 8.7 grams, over 0.3 ounces, of natural perfume by weight and measures 1 and 3/8" x 1/2" deep. The round vessel is placed in a small colored pouch and arrives with three informational cards within a cardboard pillow box. If you prefer minimal packaging please leave me a note stating what you would like included.this is ready to give a a gift to yourself or someone special. An altar to your essential nature.

I hand fabricate each of my creamy, solid natural perfumes utilizing pure, plant essences and my own plant infusions. In some cases there is even beeswax from the two colonies of feral honey bees I am guardians to.

Q is a unisex, natural perfume with the essence of the mighty oak. This fragrance has been handmade with vital essential oils, c02 extracts and absolutes in a base of local beeswax, organic golden jojoba oil, hand infused oak leaves. The synergy of essences is completely botanical with main notes of resin, wood, smoke and citrus. Layer this solid over or under your Q liquid perfume to extend the lasting performance. I also offer this solid perfume as an individual mini, within sets for the perfume locket and as a compact.

Fragrance families: Wood, chypre
Mood: The strength of the earth. The potential of the universe.
On my skin the perfume lingers for up to 12 hours, however I don’t use any other scented products to compete with the aroma.

This fragrance defies genres as a unisex perfumes for both men and women.

“Q” Perfume: Devoted to the Coastal Live Oak and the first perfume in our Californica Series. The formulation of this fragrance opened the door, duirway, to our appreciation and love of California Native Plants.
