Announcement    Are you a fan of superheroes, space explorers, consulting detectives, zombies, hunters, and horror? We've got the perfect fragrances for you! Established 11 May 2013, we have over 350 handmade fragrances for all genders designed to help you put on the mantle of your favorite hero, be transported into their arms, or act as your passport to a specific moment in time and place.

Take a look around and choose which story you want to drop into, whether it's the back seat of a big black car roaring down the road as two brothers listen to classic rock, a crumbling Southern plantation in the grips of the zombie apocalypse, a city at the bottom of the sea, cloudy skyscrapers over which vigilantes fly, or many more.

Welcome to Cherry-ka's Trunk. There are other worlds than these. 🌹

Personal requests:
We ask that you don't gender our fragrances. Fragrances take on the gender of their wearer at that moment in time (and there are far more than two genders), and therefore are themselves gender neutral. It would also make us feel safer if they didn't get a gender assigned to them.

We ask that you note if you aren't already aware that "gypsy" is a racial and ethnic slur used against the Romani people. The word for us in English is Romani, and only Romani sellers have a right to use it and profit from the racist stereotypes associated with it here on Etsy, as it is still used to this day to discriminate against us, kick us out of countries, bulldoze our homes, and traffic us to this very day.

Thank you so much for the consideration, this helps make the world a safer place for trans and Romani consumers and creators! :)

The road so far...

About my Shop: The inspirations for my fragrances from my own life, whether it's places I've been, people I want to hug, and cool stuff I've smelled. Whenever possible, I try to use oils native to the areas I'm capturing in fragrance, or that would be worn or smelled on the people and items that I'm inspired by, in that particular time.

I use jojoba, found in the Mojave, as my carrier oil. Jojoba has a 5+ year shelf life, can extend the life of other oils, and can act as a second skin while allowing the skin to breathe. I use high quality essential oils, key accords, and fragrance oils that I test extensively for accuracy of scents represented, longevity, and how well they mix with other fragrances. I also make my own blends, for such things as various fabrics, metals, or other items like pearls and teas, purely out of essential oils.

All of my fragrances are parfum concentration, meaning 20% to 30% aromatic oil to 80%-70% carrier oil.

None of my items are for resale, or use in other peoples' products.

The name of my shop is a pun, involving my love of cherries, and a word in High Speech, from In-World, known in Stephen King's The Dark Tower, which is "chary-ka".

My shop is a dedicated safe space.

Frequently asked questions
Is this note/fragrance feminine/masculine/unisex?

All notes and fragrances are gender neutral. Firstly, there are more than two genders. Secondly, it's impossible for a fragrance to have a gender, or to work better with a specific gender. All fragrances can be worn by all people; it's simply a matter of what scents they prefer. I ask as a non-binary trans man that no one describe any of my fragrances in a gendered way, and thank them for their respect. :)

Will you make a fragrance inspired by (X)?

Probably! Please see both my Bespoke Exclusive Fragrance listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/260236261/bespoke-exclusive-fragrance and my Sponsor a Fragrance listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/499829732/sponsor-a-fragrance

Just send me a message and we'll discuss my making your fragrance idea further. :)

There are a few fragrances that I will not make for any reason (even if you're fictionkin, fictive, or have them as your headmate), due to safety concerns. Those include:

• Fragrances you've come up with ALL of the notes for already.
• Nazis and other fascists (this includes Hydra, a Nazi organization, & Templars)
• Rapists
• John Winchester, Castiel, others who've hurt Dean and Sam
• Albert Wesker

Thank you for your understanding!

I'm allergic to (X) ingredient and I want (Y) fragrance. Can you make a version without (X) ingredient?

I can do my best!

Please see both my Bespoke Exclusive Fragrance listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/260236261/bespoke-exclusive-fragrance
... and my Sponsor a Fragrance listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/499829732/sponsor-a-fragrance

We can also discuss other options for wearable fragrances.

Why won't you make X scent?

I) I'm a DID and natural multiple system of fictives, and pop culture practitioner.
II) "RAGE:
Sing, Goddess, Achilles' rage,
Black and murderous, that cost the Greeks
Incalculable pain, pitched countless souls
Of heroes into Hades' dark,
And left their bodies to rot as feasts
For dogs and birds, as Zeus' will was done.
Begin with the clash between Agamemnon--
The Greek warlord--and godlike Achilles."
-- Homer, The Iliad, Lines 1-9, Stanley Lombardo translation, 1997 Common Era

Do you offer refunds if my package was lost in the mail?

I'm afraid not.
