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 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.
