A meditative and sublime fragrance recommended for daily anointment. Really transformative! Included as a generous bonus was a sample of Armoise. It's fresh and crisp.

About

Arabesque Aromas

A perfumer, cat lady, grad student, baker, tea-drinker, and candlestick maker, I regard the natural world, and my work with plants, with the highest sense of enjoyment, scholarship, and reverence.

I have a background in art, art history, writing and literature. I began researching plant folklore and period aromatics in 2001 and have been creating and selling handmade artisanal perfumes and other aromatics, from the heart, ever since.

“I am not what I am, I am what I do with my hands.”

    I began researching plant folklore and authentic medieval to Renaissance-era aromatics in 1999 with a burning desire to smell history, and have been creating handmade artisanal perfumes, and other aromatics, from the heart, ever since...

Drawing on methods from the past, I use only pure plant-based ingredients and pure essential oils in my creations.

A visit to the Islamic decorative arts wing in the Victoria Albert Museum, London, became the inspiration for Arabesque Aromas.

I was mesmerized by the sumptuous color and intricate designs in the exhibit, noticing that many of the most striking patterns featured stylized plants or flowers. These mesmerizing patterns, I learned, were known as "Arabesque."

Arabesque - a word I never tire of saying - describes a pattern, arranged symmetrically and extended indefinitely over a flat surface such as that of a textile, a decorative tile or art object. Based on plant forms, sometimes recognizable, other times highly stylized, the character of the arabesque is to morph into a fantastical form unlike anything in nature.

The thought occurred to me that, as in art, a similar abstraction occurs in perfumery when mixing different aromatic ingredients together...

and Arabesque Aromas was born!

(The Arabesque description was paraphrased from the V&A Islamic decorative art exhibit, with thanks.)
