To Bee or not to be, that is the question of our time. An organic natural perfume tribute to the little winged alchemist, the honey bee. This fragrance is emblematic of the warm, musky bee hive. As a holistic bee keeper I've come to love this particular aroma and thought it would be the perfect theme for a perfume devoted to the bee. Since not everyone is a lover of this most distinct "hive smell" I used the theme as a launch point for the perfume.



~ In the same tradition of the gourmet artisan culinary arts, I make these nature fragrances by hand using the highest quality natural raw materials. Botanical, natural perfume is a vital item, created by my hands with real plant materials.

~ A true "nature" perfume in a base of organic grape alcohol from a local supplier.

~ This little glass vial contains 1 gram (by weight, not volume) of perfume extract in the bottle. 1 gram is equal to .036 ounces.

~ The vial is placed in a glassine envelope along with informational cards about the fragrance.

~ The bottle measures approximately 1.5 inches high.

~ Contact me if you have any questions, I am here to serve you: http://www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=illuminatedperfume

~ 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.



All these perfumes are made with pure, vital essential oils, also used are co2 extracts, absolutes and my very own plant infusions. I DO NOT use animal products, nature identicals, fragrance oils, etc. I DO use products from bees and essences from the Ocean like Seaweed and Seashells.

As mentioned above, botanical perfume is NOT like products labeled as "natural" and most other fragrances on the market, they ARE like really complex aromatherapy blends. I highly recommend ordering a cute sample set if you need to make sure that BOTANICAL is the enlightened path for you or your gift recipient. Sample sets are available here: http://etsy.me/1gQpKuv



"I cannot get enough of Roxana's perfume. The care taken in the presentation alone is amazing. And the feeling of putting these beloved fragrances on is absolutely sacred." ~Mindy



Made with resins, wood, spice, mimosa, sweet clover absolute and beeswax absolute with many of my own unique accords in a base of tinctured honey comb and organic grain and grape alcohol.

The name "To Bee" is a reference to who the perfume was made in reverence to as well as the Shakespeare quote from Hamlet "To be of not to be, that is the question?" After all, if we continue to destroy our natural environment true botanical perfume will no longer be possible, the honey bee will become extinct and life as we know it will cease to exist.
