• Each vial contains at least 0.5mL of perfume - enough for about 3 applications. (this means each vial will be at least half-filled with perfume since their full capacity is 1mL.)
• Packaged inside a small (1 3/4" x 1" x 1/2") gift box. Each vial is about 1.5'' long.
• A descriptive card about the scent and a list of the prominent notes and accords is included for each perfume.


About Natural Perfume:

If you have used synthetically fragranced products (fragrance oils), you have probably noticed how they are missing the depth and the true scent that real plants, fruits, and flowers have.

Natural perfumes are much different to wear than what you will find at a headache-inducing commercial perfume counter; these essences meld with your body chemistry and stay close to the skin. Only you and those you embrace will be aware that you are wearing it. These blends of botanical distillations are more satisfying to the senses and have subtle healing properties (aromatherapy) that your mind and body will love.

Combined in a base of organic jojoba and coconut oil, these perfumes nourish the skin instead of damaging it as alcohol-based perfumes do. They also do not contain chemicals to make them last all day. Instead, they wear off in the course of about 4-6 hours, and can be re-applied as a sensory ritual. This allows the opportunity to reflect and appreciate the moment, connect with nature through its true essences, and experience the perfume’s evolution in intervals each day.

Frequently asked questions about ForStrangeWomen

Oil perfumes:

• Top notes easily escape when smelling straight from the bottle and when it is first applied. This creates a vibrant opening to the perfume, but you also must wear it for at least 5 minutes before the true scent settles in.
• These are better sealed inside their bottles, making the perfume able to be stored for a much longer time than the solids.

Solid perfumes:
• Top notes are muted since they are trapped in the beeswax, which releases the scent more slowly (less silage), but the base notes last a little longer on the skin during the dry down.
• Scent is stronger in warm weather and on warm skin, as heat is needed to make the scent evaporate from beeswax
The silage and overall tenacity of each perfume is based more on the specific plant essences in a blend, not the carrier base. Earthy woods, roots, and spices tend to last much longer than delicate florals, herbs, and citrus.

The Moongarden perfumes are twice as concentrated as all the other perfumes so that the delicate floral essences can be as powerful as the other blends.
Our culture tells us that sweet and floral scents are feminine in gender and that woodsy, spicy, musky scents are masculine. I believe that men can wear any scent they are comfortable in, as can women, and plant essences should not be limited by gender. However, if you are looking for a scent that is a bit more woodsy and traditionally masculine, we recommend trying Coyote, Horse, Tobacco + Leather, and Fireside Story.
The Perfume Oils are actually in a liquid wax base, so they will not turn rancid as many other perfume oils do. The perfumes will begin to lose delicate floral, citrus, and other top notes after a year, and sometimes the earthier notes will take over and become stronger over time. Although the scent may fade or change after the first year, it will not actually ever go "bad".

Solid perfumes are often more exposed to oxygen, which will break down the scent faster than the oils in airtight bottles. The perfume will last about 6 months before the scent begins to fade. ordered, it can be stored for up to a year, and the scent will lose its strength much more slowly.
The Lip Embellishments are best if used within 2 years, but they are still safe to use after this. Sometimes if exposed to fluctuating temperatures, the shea butter in these will fractionate, causing a bumpy texture. This does not mean the balm has gone bad, and it is still useable, as the bumps go away when warmed up.

The Rosehip Elixir Oil and Solid both must be stored very carefully (away from heat, sunlight, and oxygen exposure) and used within 6-8 months. The oils in these are fragile and oxidation will occur naturally because we do not put any harsh preservatives in it. The scent will drastically change if the oils go rancid, so this is the best way to determine their expiration.
• To prolong the life of the plant oils, store products in a cool (50-70 degrees F), dry place away from sunlight.
• All FSW products are free of water, which mold and bacteria need in order to grow, so this type of concern is not an issue.
• All perfume oils are in a liquid or solid wax base (not actually oil), so rancidity is also not an issue.
All of our orders are carefully wrapped with beautiful details, and sending a package directly to a gift recipient will be appropriate. If your order is a gift, you may let us know in the notes at checkout to include a short note or to leave out the receipt.
