New Natural Solid Parfums

All week I've been working on building up the solid perfume stock, and thus far I have in the shop Piedra, Mimosa, and Violetta.

Piedra is based on an orange blossom core with juicy citrus notes enhancing this core, and extending notes that include patchouli, vetyver, labdanum, and clove bud. It's very deep and dark with heady floral notes, and it lasts a while on the skin, far longer than the same blend would if made in alcohol.

Mimosa was a surprise as it's turned out to be really gorgeous, begun with a core of mimosa and enhancing notes of real linden blossom, lime, rose, neroli, bergamot, and hyacinth, and extending notes of amber and tobacco. It smells of mimosa, but far sweeter and sexier than straight mimosa ever smelled.

Violetta began with a core of orris root and violet leaf, then I added enhancing notes of boronia, tuberose, and jasmine sambac, and extending notes of oakmoss, patchouli, elemi absolute, almond extract, and different vanillas. This one is more vanilla-violet than straight violet, so it lasts on the skin for an hour or more, in a mostly oakmoss and vanilla sort of way. It isn't as bright and cheery as violets alone, instead, it expands on the forest earth in which the violets grow.

There are a few more coming, maybe some resurrections, as I posted earlier here. Solid perfume is perfect for the autumn and winter months as they last longer on usually drier skin.
