Vespertina™ solid natural perfume in a round tin contains essences associated with heightened consciousness. Find a sample here in these sets: http://etsy.me/1gQpKuv

This resinous fragrance is inspired by The Visions of Vespertina, a collaborative music project created by Greg Spalenka and Michelle Barnes. The heart of the perfume features a rich floral triad spun of luxurious rose, jasmine and lotus gently reclining on ancient resinous wood. The affect is an intricate seduction. Images of a golden Bysantine crown come to mind with the rubies, emeralds and opals replaced by precious essences from Arabian deserts and lush ancient forests. This is a concept perfume, weaving in the different elements surrounding the main character of the story, Vespertina. Since the epic tale has a backstory of her romance with the young knight Dante I added co-distilled essences and attars, these components bring one essence that is the marriage of two separate parts.

The round 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.

A perfect gift for those allergic to traditional perfume. An altar to your essential nature.

The first sketch of the fragrance for Vespertina was constructed around rose and other supporting florals. This aligned well with Vespertina’s devotional nature and her feminine qualities. Since the female character is a visionary mystic I wove in plants associated with this archetype such as; lotus, sandalwood and frankincense. The essences mentioned anchor the scent and have strong connections to the divine. Cypress was included to facilitate fixation as well as bring in the story element of the souls journey after death. The orchestration also contains Angelica for its connection to the realms of the angels and the inner landscape. The triad at the heart revolves features rose for the strong presence in the story as well as the aroma therapeutic associations with the heart and healing. The top notes include zest and herbal relating to Vespertina’s upbringing in an fourteenth century English convent and a bit of spice for her ancestral roots.

Vespertina has a progressive evolution moving from resin, wood and spice into a floral heart. The dry down varies depending on skin chemistry. In some cases the vestiges of the evolution remain a floral hum, while on others the scent transcends into incense with wood or a wood and leather. At the San Diego Comic Con, where this perfume debuted, I witnessed with complete fascination the aromatic scope of this perfume and its process of molecular disbursement on varying skin types. It was perfect within the context of the character Vespertina and her adventure. I suggest taking a scent journey while listening to the music.

Vespertina Botanical Perfume ingredients include a melody of wood, resin, seed, leaf, flower, spice and zest featuring: Frankincense, Vintage Mysore Sandalwood, Wood, Rose, Jasmine, Lotus, Citrus, Spice.

Divina at the Fragrance Bouquet Blog states this about the liquid version of the fragrance:
"Meaning “Evening”, Vespertina™ is a glorious, floral scent with rich veins of spice. Its construction is absolutely marvelous, with top notes that you’ll want to chase after like fleeting dreams, floral heart notes so deep they make you feel like you can get lost in their nuances forever, and spicy, woody base notes that linger comfortingly on the skin until the skin’s own beauty shines through."

A fragrant poesy (poetry):

"The red rose whispers of passion
and the white rose breathes of love
O, the red rose is a falcon
and the white rose is a dove
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
with a flush on it's petal tips
for the love that is purest and sweetest
has a kiss of desire on it's lips"
~ O'Reilly
