Cimbalom is an intoxicating, golden solid perfume named after the stringed instrument closely related to the hammered dulcimer. This sample is of the 2010 edition. Find a sample of the latest edition here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/112253223/cimbalom-an-exotic-jasmine-solid-natural

Just like the exotic musical chordophone that can be found dating back to 3500 BC, this perfume contains melodic notes of Jasmine with percussive beats of Amber and Resin. Cimbalom is in the "Oriental" fragrance family, the main notes are Vanilla, Patchouli and Jasmine with resins, citrus and spice weaved in. I used three different types of Jasmine, including my favorite jasmine sambac.

THIS IS A SAMPLE of the 2010 edition.

In the same tradition of the gourmet artisan culinary arts, I make these completely natural perfumes by hand using the highest quality raw materials from nature. This sample is made to test on the skin, experience the natural aroma and then make an informed decision as to which larger size to purchase.

Each sample is poured by hand into a pink pot with my iconic honeybee wax seal. The size of this sample is contained in a pink pot measuring 1 inch wide x 3/4 inch high. There is at least 0.5 grams of solid perfume in the container, sometimes more. Please see picture at right which indicates how much is in the pot. This sample provides ample amounts for testing and altar-ing your consciousness. An altar to your essential nature. This listing includes the sample and a set of informational cards in a glassine envelope.

I'm committed to supporting nature and bringing humans closer to her magnifi-scents. My perfumes support local, organic and sustainable agriculture.

Mini solids SAMPLES also available in larger sets of varying amounts:
