Vera, meaning true, is the Latin binomial for lavender in the linguistic terminology of plants. This natural botanical solid perfume expertly weaves several types of lavender with notes of white sage, fresh mown hay, orange blossom and a salty ocean breeze. I launched this fragrance in mid June of 2007 when I was the keynote speaker at the Ojai Lavender Festival.

~ Each solid perfume is poured into a separate pan that fits inside with the little engraved case. This ensures lasting performance of this pure, natural, botanical perfume and the option to replace with a fresh tin when all used up. The case is placed in a pouch with informational cards contained within a pillow box.

~ The front of the compact contains a Victorian diamond design that has a warm antique brass finish. The ornate design is engraved, so you can feel it if you run your finger over it.

~ 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 are the same size, weight and shape as the perfume lockets.

~ 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.

~ In the same tradition of the gourmet artisan culinary arts, I make these nature fragrances by hand using the highest quality natural raw materials. All these perfumes are made with essential oils, co2 extracts, absolutes and my very own plant infusions.

~ No synthetic, phthalate or paraben materials, completely cruelty free with no animal testing by me or my suppliers.



"Amazing smell! My favorite scent from this shop. Gave 2 as gifts and both recipients have asked me where they can order more." ~ Monique

"An earthy interpretation sans all pretension, with a surprising influx of the sage and orange blossom." ~ Sands Murray of the Perfume Critic

"I am wearing this right now. Seeing how Vera is my favorite thing in the world, of course I love it. Love, love, love it.""

Tom at Perfume Smellin' Things says: "Fields of lavender in the sun, orange blossom and a slight saltiness like sun-kissed skin."



Essences include: lavender, sage, moss, seaweed and orange blossom; and our own artisanal infusions of Lavender from an organic farm in Ojai and White Sage from our own Woodland garden. There are over forty individual, pure essences in this complex lavender perfume.
