I have to totally change my review. The scent I ordered wasn't anything like I thought it would be. But after wearing it today, I found that I really like it! If you want something that is unusual and different, this is it!

I was very impressed with how fast my order arrived. The scent was strong and lasted for a very long time. I've had scents that were gone almost as soon as you put them on. So I was very impressed with that too. However the scent didn't smell anything like pumpkins. That said, the scent was kind of a green spicy floral scent, Pleasant, and fall like. I intend to wear it often.

About

Akima Botanicals offers natural, effective skin care and household products, inspired by nature and the philosophy of mindful living.

~100% vegan, cruelty free, and responsibly sourced natural ingredients

~Eco-friendly packaging
~Handcrafted in small batches
~When available I prefer to purchase items for my business from other small businesses, as local as possible.

Akima Aromas blends natural and man-made notes to create complex fragrances reminiscent of the old and new world around us. (Also free from phthalates or parabens).

I started Akima Botanicals when I turned thirty. I'd always known I was meant to be self-employed, but couldn't quite figure out what to do and how to do it. After about a years research I got together my LLC, liability insurance, and such and went full steam ahead! As a child I was always the mad scientist, concocting various creations in our NJ Pine Barrens kitchen. Creating beautiful perfumes and skin care felt natural to me, so I took my love of all natural, eco-friendly, handmade items and combined it with my hobby of making bath & body products for friends & family, and Akima Botanicals was born. I handcraft everything from product to label, and run every aspect of my business myself.

Where does Akima come from? Simple really - when I had more time I was a bellydancer, a regular at many area restaurants, haflas, and various gigs & festivals. Akima was my stage name.

I use eco-friendly, organic, fair trade, responsibly wild-harvested botanicals and ingredients free from parabens, phthalates, artificial dyes and preservatives. When fragrance oils are used, I carefully select only the most premium quality oils tested for purity and safety, also free from parabens, phthalates, and chemical preservatives. Green manufacturing and operations are always practiced; I pledge to reuse, reduce, recycle, and sustain as much as possible! All containers are recyclable, and all products & ingredients are eco-friendly and cruelty free.

I'm a sucker for all things vintage, so my table/display set up at farmers markets and craft fairs if chock full of fantastic thrift store and flea market finds. I tend to favor vintage kitchen and serving items, and like the look of different style pieces coming together so aesthetically well.
