Lyra is a sweet, feminine amber perfume melding juicy rinds with jasmine and ylang ylang at the heart. There are soft lilac notes in this fragrance which are the result of the finely tuned chemistry of the florals interacting with all the other elements. This is the Summer 2015 edition of Lyra. More "perfume details" can be found below.



~ 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.

~ The mini compact measures 42mm tall (just over an inch and a half) by 33mm wide (1 1/4 inches) and the inside recessed circle for the solid perfume pan measures 23mm. The small tray will supply about 30 applications of the fragrance.

~ These compacts are the same size, weight and shape as the perfume lockets here:

~ These pretty compacts are made here in the USA from vintage molds that go back to the 1940's. Each one has been plated with a special finish to create an antique quality. No lead or nickel have been utilized. Also included is four informational cards all contained in a pillow box.

You can also order the solids pans individually so that you can choose a different scent for each occasion:

~ The brass compact arrives in a small pouch, perfect as a gift, for travel and/or your purse.

~ 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.

~ The beeswax in the solid perfumes comes from Ojai, California beeswax from the two colonies of feral honey bees I am guardian to.

~ Contact me if you have any questions, I am here to serve you:



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:

In Sniffapalooza Magazine Victoria Austin wrote: "A rich, full-bodied, sweetly tinged amber, floral fragrance that evokes the essence of Fall with its warm sensuality. Through a veil of tropical flowers, the amber and somewhat licorice tinted base glows leaving a dry down trail of light citrus so as not to allow the amber to overpower." and "The glowing amber floral fragrance exudes an ethereal waft of a bonfire note arising then transitioning in a light citrusy orange drink at the end of my sensory-awakening tramp in the cool, late October forest."



This is the SUMMER 2015 edition of Lyra.

Fragrance families: Floriental
Notes: Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Lilac, Vanilla and Citrus

Ylang ylang and jasmine essences are associated with femininity and sensuality. In aromatherapy circles these two aromas are considered relaxing, euphoric and strong aphrodisiacs. The word aphrodisiac comes from the name of the Greek Goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite. There are a total of twenty different essential oils, absolutes and C02 extractions in this perfume.

The inspiration for Lyra began with a custom perfume created for my daughter Eve (Evangeline). Since I do not replicate custom perfume formulas, I swapped out some essences in the top, middle and base and added new ones. we choose the name Lyra while we were reading "The Golden Compass."

In floriography, the Victorian language of flowers, tussie mussies or nose gays were given to a beloved to convey a message. Small floral bouquets were gifted to a beloved as a piece of poetry that appealed to the eyes and the sense of smell. The word posy was first written as poesy referring to poetry.


Enjoy, bee happy, anoint yourself often and share the botanical way of perfumery!
