Sunlit Meadow in a Bottle: Natural Perfume by Perfumessence

Meadow is inspired by the notion of  a cool breeze warmed by spring sunshine in a wildflower meadow, mingling with   wild grasses and fresh herbaceous wild shrubs. I blended sunny bergamot with a floral accord composed of jasmine, neroli, rose, ylang ylang, and counter-balanced the soft florals with blue chamomile and sandalwood.  Meadow is feminine, fresh, youthful, uplifting and joyous. 

100% organic ingredients are carried in light fractionated (odorless) coconut oil.  Skin-friendly and healthy since it contains nothing toxic or threatening to your well-being. 

Wear: Smoothly phasing from the captivating opening into the heart & drydown. Lasting noticeably about 1 hour gradually becoming more subtle, with a lingering woody-freshness for hours beyond.

Fragrant Eyecandy: Felted Perfume Bottles

My Blooming Bottle Cozy signifies two things unique to natural perfumes:

  • First, natural perfume "blooms" on your skin when it reacts with your personal chemistry, and it phases like a symphony through opening, heart & end notes. 
  • Secondly, the perfume ages like a fine wine, blossoming into an even more gorgeous experience. Presented in my handmade blossom cozy, individually & uniquely made of felted longfiber wool to perfectly fit the bottle.

My bottle cozy serves also to help shield your perfume from direct light, so it remains potent and continues to "bloom" as it gradually ages.

Each unique Blooming Bottle cozy is made by hand, meaning each one will vary slightly. The bottle is reusable (refillable.)

For the sheer whimsy of it, I designed these vanity bottle caps:
