This is one of the high end price points of our haute couture solid perfumes. Due to the high nature component of these fragrances, the amount of time and resources involved, they are not returnable. Please try a sample of the fragrance before investing in a higher priced item. Individual samples and sets are available here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/IlluminatedPerfume?section_id=5770674 Botanical, natural perfume is a vital item, created by hand with real plant materials.

The pan within the solid perfume contains approximately 7.5 grams, 0.265 ounces, of natural perfume by weight. These gorgeous cases are manufactured and finished in America by a small family owned business. The compact measures 2-5/8" X 1-5/8" X 1/2" deep.
I pour each solid perfume into a separate vinyl coated aluminum pan that fits inside within the metal compact. This insures lasting performance and the option to replace with a fresh tin when all used up. The compact is placed in a hand crochet pouch by Martha of TwoKnit and then into a decorated purple gift box. Perfect as a special, nature infused gift to oneself or someone special.
These solid perfumes are created in my woodland studio by my own hand, utilizing my own custom accords and pure, botanical essences. All my perfumes are created with vital nature, completely synthetic and cruelty free. I do not use any of the typical, historical animal ingredients, it's an ethical thing that I feel very committed to.
"Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air."
