Fig is a beautiful, complex scent I find to be a comforting blend that lifts my spirits on dreary days (in terms of weather and/or emotionally). A sample of Xanthe was also generously included, and that scent (other than being lovely in all sorts of ways) has the ability to transport you to another place/destination :-)

Very nourishing and smells good to boot :-) 2 perfume samples were also kindly included (Rose & Fig). Can't go wrong with purchasing something from this shop between the great customer service and high quality ingredients.

Reminds me of an old world vintage perfume, very nostalgic :-) Shipping was super quick, packaging was lovely, and a sample was kindly included. Happy that I was able to get more perfume from this lovely seller.

About

About my nose...

My interest in natural perfumery began after a discovery I made about my nose while visiting Hawaii several years ago. I came upon a tiny natural perfumery at the northern tip of Maui. At the time, I did not know what natural perfumery was, only that I was allergic to traditional perfume (probably due to their synthetic ingredients which are petrol based). I picked up a perfume and gave it a whiff. It was completely different that what I'd smelled at department stores, like sticking my nose into a fresh bouquet of lilacs, the ones with the velvety, almost soap-like scent.

But more importantly, I noticed that the perfume came with not only a listing of its botanical 'notes,' but also its dominant musical notes (B, E flat, etc.), and not only that, I could actually hear these notes when I smelled them. I was born with perfect pitch (the ability to identify and/or reproduce musical pitches), but I never thought it could extend to my nose. To confirm that was what was happening, the proprietress of the perfumery blind tested my nose with her other perfumes. I was able to correctly identify the pitches I 'smelled,' and I've been noticing the notes ever since.

When I'm not creating perfume, I am a writer of young adult fiction. My latest book explores this idea of natural perfumery as an ancient magical practice between a mother/daughter team of love witches, and if you are interested in reading it, you can find it here: http://www.staceyhlee.com/secret-of-a-heart-note/

At Sweetbriar Perfumes, we believe in using only elements from the natural world in building our essences. We start with a base of organic jojoba oil or organic ethanol, then our proprietary concoction of pure botanicals. Our perfumes are at least 75% organic, and we try to use organic or wild-crafted oils whenever possible. Each perfume is lovingly hand blended, then aged like fine wine to let the aromas bloom and deepen. Our organic perfumes are LIMITED edition and often change with the seasons.

Synthetic perfumes use phthalates, parabens, petroleum, and petroleum-derivative chemicals to mimic scents found in nature, and to artificially prolong the fragrance’s sticking power. However, these same chemicals are known to contain neurotoxins and carcinogens.

Sweetbriar Perfumes do not contain any synthetic chemicals or animal components, nor do we test on animals.

Natural perfume making is a time consuming art and a labor of love. While natural perfumes may cost more, essential oil has unique health benefits, like supporting the immune system, relieving pain, soothing digestive disorders, decreasing anxiety, to name just a few. In addition to these health benefits, natural perfumes smell delicious, and are planet-friendly.

Our delicious bouquet of perfumes may be dabbed on the skin, inhaled from the bottle, or sprinkled in a bath or shower for a more immersive aroma experience. A perfume may smell different on the skin than from the bottle as it intermingles with a person’s unique chemistry.

We have been dabbling in potions for the past ten years and specialize in custom-blending scents based on your particular quirks and preferences. Please convo us if you are interested in a custom blend.

Additional policies and FAQs
All botanical products should be kept out of direct sunlight and heat, properly sealed, in a cool environment beyond the reach of children. With proper love and attention, your perfume may provide your with years of precious scent. Generally, essential oils improve with age as the essences intermingle. Since our perfumes do not contain any synthetic "extenders," they may last approximately two hours on your skin, gently fading away, depending on your skin's unique chemistry. We encourage frequent application of our perfumes to the pulse points and the hair for the richest experience.

PLEASE READ:
All products are intended for external use and need to be kept out of reach from children. As with any cosmetic, you should patch-test perfumes for sensitivities or allergies before using them freely. Certain oils like citrus oils may cause phototoxicity in certain cases. Others are contraindicated during pregnancy. If you have any concern about using a particular product, please consult with your medical professional before using.
