Alkemia's Shop Announcement

Notice: We're traveling in search of new inspirations to bring you more perfumed delights. Orders will be shipping as usual (maybe just a wee bit slower because we'll be short handed in the workshop), but there may be a delay in responding to convos. Thank you for your understanding! <3


Alkemia's perfumes are blended with science, passion, and magic. Our olfactory artistry blends with the subtle variations of individual skin chemistry to create uniquely personal scents that invite delicious surrender to the seductive pleasures of fragrance.

"A spiritual process as well as an aesthetic one, the art of perfumery is at once holy and carnal, spiritual and material, arcane and modern, tangible and intangible, profound and superficial."

- from 'Essence & Alchemy: A Natural History of Perfume' by Mandy Aftel

About Perfume Oils: Perfume oils generally, and Alkemia oils in particular, are highly concentrated. Unlike alcohol-based perfumes (which are often as much as 75% alcohol), oil based perfumes are subtler, longer-lasting, easier to travel with, and much, much kinder to your skin. Alkemia oils can be used full-strength or diluted in your favorite unscented lotion or a carrier oil (such as almond or jojoba) to suit your preference.
This is a great blog article about how to wear perfume oils:

All Alkemia oils are cruelty-free, alcohol-free, vegan (except for the oils that have honey notes), and designed to be potent fragrances that remain gentle to your skin (we test on a variety of humans - including some with various chemical sensitivities and allergies). Since humans vary widely, individuals with especially sensitive skin or other sensitivities may want to patch test first.

Alkemia perfume oils are phthalate free and paraben free. We use natural essences and safe synthetics only without the addition of fillers, by-products, or other nastiness.

We try to make scents that we crave but can't find and are always open to new ideas and suggestions. Please Convo us and share your scent craving...
