About MelegPerfumes

On Etsy since 2019

Thick, rich formulas. Made with quality essential oils and ethically sourced animal musks.

To me, perfume is more than a craft. It`s my telephone to the world.
You see, I have a condition called PTSD and making perfumes gives me reason to connect with other perfume enthusiasts from across the world.

My journey to making perfumes started with a large collection of Victorian apothecary books...And some of my perfumes are inspired by the thick, rich, and daring perfumes of the past.

About Inspiration
My love for plants, chemistry, art, history and culture has lead me to create a series of vintage inspired perfumes. And to be honest, some of my perfumes take an educated nose to appreciate. As one critique wrote, "these are perfumes for perfume geeks." Some of my wares are very different from those you`d find at the mall.

I am always looking for the finest materials.
I make perfumes with materials purchased from only reputable suppliers and purchase essential oils from the Robertet company, IFF, Firmenich, from John Steele, Eden Botanicals and other top quality suppliers.

Disclaimer and safety information

My perfumes are not IFRA compliant. As such, I do not sell them on a large scale in European department stores. This does mean Meleg Perfumes are more, or less dangerous that other perfumes...it simply means that I do not limit my formulations. For example, I love natural oak moss. And some people (a very small fraction of the population) are allergic to it. So IFRA compliant perfumes - perfumes which sell in the millions, don't typically use oak moss because there is a chance someone may have a bad reaction. I am not IFRA compliant because I feel its up to the consumer to know their own body, and stop using any type of product should they develop a reaction.

Perfume is not for consumption. No liability will be assumed by “Meleg Perfumes," for any claims arising out of the use or misuse of these perfumes. Keep all perfumes out of reach of children. If you are pregnant or nursing a baby, have heart disease, epilepsy, high blood pressure, diabetes, or any other medical condition that can be affected by essential oils or fragrances, please seek the advice of a health professional before using perfume oils.

My perfumes are highly concentrated, and as such, may cause skin irritation. Keep all essential oils, perfume oils and fragrance products away from eyes and mucous membranes. Skin test all product samples before using. Apply a small amount, less than a drop, to the skin on your inner arm. Do not use if redness or irritation occurs. If redness, burning, itching or irritation occurs, stop using product immediately and wash with soap and water to clean the affected area. If self treatment is not effective, consult your medical provider.
