Roxana Villa’s Chaparral, a woodsy, dry scent inspired by the native California landscape with hints of sage and frankincense, became a grassy mix of shaved delta asparagus, cipollini onion, grilled citrus, ricotta, toasted sage and fennel.
The solid perfume version of this incense inspired fragrance has been created by hand utilizing pure, plant essences. This is the perfect gift for those allergic to traditional perfume.
The experience of wearing and applying gems from the plant kingdom is very sensual, relaxing, uplifting and has the potential of transporting you on an olfactory journey into realms of memory, other lifetimes, etc.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.
