Gypsy Perfume Alchemy

Hello, my name is Nina. I create natural botanical perfumes and scented apothecary products that invoke a sense of ancient alchemy and gypsy lore using plant gifts of nature and transforming them into beautiful sensory moments. A shop where all those who seek the uncommon in scents may find their journeys end here, guided by the gypsy in all of us.

Each scent creation is designed and inspired by old world ways of hand grinding herbs and macerating fruits in a mortar and pestle and setting oils in a window to infuse by sunlight in old apothecary jars...making sure to be blessed with a sense of magick by the hands that made them.

This is my small; one woman ran business where all products and scents are made in my home based apothecary studio quaintly nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains . I am a modern scent alchemist who finds fascination in the unknown and mysteries in of life . I have a love for natural perfumery, crafting, gardening, opera , the theatre ,old homes, history, and am a constant dreamer who has a deep love for the night air, star gazing and moonlight . Walks in nature and study of herbal medicine are a favorite past time and I live in an old cottage style bungalow home built-in 1918. I am also a mother of 3 and wife to a wonderful and supportive husband whom I have been with since our days in junior high.

I come from a large Hispanic family and our roots go back to Spanish Gypsy decent. We were the Flamenco musicians and street vendors from Spain who came to the US bringing with them their old ways in the practice of herbal medicine. My family has a very strong belief in natural and spiritual healing not to mention superstitious and deep rooted into Spanish folklore. They used what they had and could find to take care of any ailments on their own by the use of herbal teas and salves. This practice was passed down from generation to generation and I am proud to have learned the art of brewing herbal teas and making oil infusions from my mother and grandmother.

My business came to be when I discovered during pregnancy that my body was severely reacting to commercial perfumes and anything that was fragrance, from soap, to shampoo and even detergents. This carried over even after I had given birth and sadly had to give up many store bought items, department store perfumes included which was devastating to me. So determined to find something to be able to wear as perfume , that was free of unknown harmful chemicals and not have a reaction to I began to read up on natural botanical perfume making. This opened the familiar door of family herbal remedies, teas and infusions and I combined what I had discovered into creating perfume oil infusions changing a few aspects to perfect my recipes. I learn and create by instinct and by what moves me, all the while teaching myself the magick and alchemy that is natural perfume making.

Natural perfume is very different from perfume made with fragrances or synthetic oils. Scents will be different on each individual’s skin because the scent evolves over time with body chemistry and tends to fade into your body gently and gradually. So in wearing natural perfume you simply need an occasional top-up sometime during your day or evening to maintain your unique aromatic signature. So very different is natural from commercial perfumes because each recipe is so very unique and mysterious in its evolution of scent. There truly is an essence of nature and energy to be discovered when wearing natural perfume; they are not just cloned notes and never one dimensional.

Every product and perfume oil offered is created in small batches by hand using only carefully sourced,quality essential oils and naturally derived aromatic and botanical substances available to create my natural perfumes that are 100% natural, phthalate, paraben, synthetic,petroleum, and cruelty free. I fully support ethically produced and harvested materials that are organically grown and wild-crafted either by myself or from reputable suppliers. All is carefully and lovingly packaged in hand made card labels and wrapped in recycled gift bags and paper adorned with black satin ribbons . This is a labor of love that I so very much enjoy doing for my customers so that they too can enjoy a touch of natural scented alchemy and gypsy magick.
It was wonderful to have you stop by !
