A concept perfume inspired by the album by Greg Spalenka and Michelle Barnes about the 13th century mystic Vespertina. I built the perfume around rose and other supporting floral notes which aligned well with what I know of the heroines devotional nature and feminine qualities. Since the female character is a visionary mystic I wove in some of the precious essences associated with this archetype as well as heightened consciousness; lotus, frankincense and Mysore sandalwood.

Vespertina™ is a floral resin fragrance with a sophisticated feel. Get a sample in one of these sets:

This mini compact opens to reveal a separate little tin pan filled with Vespertina solid natural perfume. When snapped shut, the front of the oval shaped 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. Pretty and feminine! The compact arrives in a small pouch contained within a purple gift box with four informational cards. 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.

Like a tussie-mussie, this bouquet of Vespertina™ natural perfume adorns the Goddess within and the ability to sniff and apply nature as desired. Perfect for travel or when carrying a purse is not an option.

"Knowest thou the land, where the lemon trees bloom,
Where the gold orange glows in the deep thickets gloom,
Where a wind ever soft, from the blue heaven blows,
And the groves are of laurel and myrtle and rose."
- Goethe

These romantic, antique inspired 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.

Terrific for those allergic to traditional perfume. I hand fabricate each of these creamy, solid perfumes utilizing pure, plant essences and my own plant infusions. In some cases there is even beeswax from my fabulous honey bees!

I pour the solid perfumes in separate aluminum pans so that they will not adversely react with the brass metal of the locket. This insures longevity of your perfume and also gives you the option to swap out different fragrances.

Enjoy, bee happy, slather yourself often and mindfully.
