Announcement   We offer you a Collection of handcrafted Solid Perfumes in sustainable wooden pots, small crafted solid perfumes in tins, Perfume Oils & luxurious Soaps, Body Lotion and Body & Hair Oil handmade and created in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Our work reflects the many faces of nature in the Pacific. Long after the perfume is gone, the wooden pot holds the fragrance, becoming a keepsake to treasure and your piece of our paradise.

The ORIGINAL RANGE of solid perfume comes in our signature wooden Beech pots. Essential oils and Fragrance oils (man made) are used with jojoba oil and beeswax to create beautiful unique perfumes.

Our LIMITED EDITION range in slider tins is 100% pure botanical including Floral waxes. Our inspiration here comes from the emergence of those post Victorian strong women, Dancers, Circus Artists, Actors and performers. Eccentric, kooky and FUN!

Our Soaps are made with cocoa butter, sustainable Palm oil and Tamanu oil which is a regenerating oil from Tahiti, wonderful for dry skin. The packaging is all from recycled card, printed with vegetable ink, and the soaps contain pure essential oils (IslandPassion, Maui and Frangipani) and fragrance oils (Pacific Goddess).

The Artisan Botanical Range are 100% Natural and have won 2 Green & Sustainable Packaging Awards. The Beech wood containers hold 10 grams/0.35 oz of solid perfume made only with 100% botanical extracts in a base of Organic Jojoba oil and Organic Beeswax. They come in a box that is totally biodegradable and uses recycled card. Inside the box there's a push out veneer tree with the perfume, an extra gift! (see photos)

The Body Range - All perfectly natural - A lightly perfumed Body Lotion and a sumptuous Body & Hair Oil. The theme of feasting kept playing on our minds, a ritual dedicated to the body, one where the world stops, there’s no pressure and your natural world slips back into balance. Lush, hydrating, rejuvenating, replenishing – all the words you want to hear!

Botanical Perfume Oils from exotic oils from all over the world, handcrafted in our Studio in small batches. Love Asteroid perfume Oil spray, a tribute to white Florals with a hint of Spice and The Buccaneer Perfume Oil just a perfect creation for men! Check out the listings.

About

Perfume from the South Pacific

Back in the 80's while visiting Santorini, the most beautiful of Greek islands, Kate JasonSmith chanced upon a tiny ceramic pot containing the most exquisite solid perfume. Hoping the perfume would last forever proved futile. But the little ceramic pot Kate kept as a constant reminder of everything about that particular moment in her life.

Some ten years later back in New Zealand, Kate met Francesca who explained she’d run a very successful business in the tourist gift market in Greece … creating solid perfumes in ceramic pots…‘Do you mean like this?" asked Kate finding her treasured ceramic pot. Indeed, it was Francesca’s perfume!

Kate urged Francesca to create a similar solid perfume product for the Pacific market based on the beauty that is Aotearoa. In 2002 they decided on their unique packaging concept and their first Original Range was born.

Next we created the Artisan Botanical Range solid perfumes. These unravel layer by layer before revealing the perfume entirely and every piece of the packaging is sustainable so our conscience feels clear as well.

Limited Editions reflect the revival of Steampunk, Victorian Edwardian all rolled into one, eccentric imagery and accessories, pieces of machinery, tins, boxes and weird paraphernalia.

Body Lotions and Body and Hair Oils - lush, hydrating, rejuvenating and replenishing – all the words you want to hear!
Our honour: ingredients that are wholesome, natural and won’t cost you the earth!

We invite you to be curious.

We are committed to sustainability, Certified Cruelty Free and winners of 2 Green Packaging Awards for our Artisan Perfume Range.

Some Interesting facts about Solid Perfume:

Our new ARTISAN range blends botanical essences of flower, wood, fruits and resin, creating unique fragrances that evolve on the wearer over time. Performing quite differently from synthetic fragrances - botanical perfumes blossom on the skin, marrying with your own exclusive scent - over several hours each ingredient flourishes. Being natural, the Artisan perfumes do not last all day long. Depending on your skin type, it may go through and evolving process of 2-5 hours then one experiences a variable drydown time as it lingers on the surface of the skin. Its lovely to carry the wooden pot in your bag or purse and re apply throughout the day.

Untamed in their creation you may find a fleck of cocoa or vanilla in your fragrance. We believe this adds to the authenticity of our perfumes. They are surprisingly untouched and delightfully unfiltered.

The ORIGINAL range perform as any Solid Perfume and we recommend you to apply this perfume to your pulse points. They are an intimate fragrance, great for traveling and the 10mls are within regulatory volumes for Air travel.

STORAGE FOR YOUR PERFUMES:

• Keep perfumes in a cool environment away from direct sunlight or intense heat

• The Original Range solid perfumes shelf life can actually be indefinite because they contain mostly fragrances oils which are man made. I have some that were made 20 years ago but I do recommend you use them within 2-3 years.

• The Artisan Botanical Range, because they are 100% Natural, have a shelf life of 2 years. These will still be good after this period of time however they do contain delicate essential oils of citrus which will become weakened after time.

• Avoid eye area, apply as directed on pulse points and please do not consume.
