Custom Perfumes – What is Botanical Perfumery?
Blending flowers, leaves, woods, resins and seed essences into aromatic treasures is the art of botanical perfumery. With great effort we carefully avoid all synthetic laboratory-made imitations of the real thing. Knowing who your growers, distillers, and perfumers are is key to insuring you this exquisite quality. Fine wine makers expect high quality in their bottles, and we want you to expect high quality in artisan perfumery.
We adore aromatic flowers and plants. They excite us, nurture us, help us to remember who we are, calm us at anytime and connect us with others. When you manipulate their healing qualities with chemicals at any point in the process of making perfume, you not only run the risk of making people very sick, you distort any possibility of receiving the many healing benefits of the plants.
We all want to smell wonderful even with our vastly varying likes and dislikes. Our olfactory brain is animalistic in nature. We attract our lovers and mates with our individually unique pheromones which our olfactory brain determines. Wearing botanical perfumery, instead of its synthetic imitators, can open a whole new world of relationships for you.
Our beloved perfumer, Christa Obuchowski, ingeniously created “Scent Portraits.” Having a “Scent Portrait” crafted just for you is like receiving an aromatic poem, song, or painting that silently but evocatively expresses your individuality.
With great reverence, we will select and smell a variety of amazing essential oils that excite your personal olfactory preferences. Through a delightful and poignant personal process we will ask you questions to conjure memories and inspiration for your signature scent.
