Perfumes

When creating natural perfumes, we decided to create certain standards that would help us to define what natural perfumes are and which perfumes we can call natural. To be able to do this, we "went back" to a time when perfumery was a craft, perfumes were made in small factories in France and Germany, from plants grown on family farms. The raw materials for them, such as essential oils or absolutes, were obtained by the same families right after the harvest. We went back to times when the harvest lasted 30-35 days (Rose), and the harvest from a given year gave a slightly different raw material than in previous years, thus emphasizing the transience of nature.


In the times we are referring to, the "delicacy" of the fragrance was something normal, its short duration was not a defect, but a natural feature. The perfumer created perfumes that not only matched the trends of the time, but also helped the wearer to stay healthy. Already at this stage in the development of perfumery, the fragrance has come a long way in the history of mankind.


The first fragrances, obtained from resins, were reserved for sacrifice and only priests had the right to prepare and burn them (at that time perfumes were powdered resins that had to be burned to extract the smell, from Latin: per fumum - through smoke). The recipe for perfumes also appears in the Bible. In ancient Egypt, the invention of the alembic made it possible to obtain essential oils. In the later medieval times, perfumes became a weapon against plague, and a market developed for leather gloves impregnated with lavender and rosemary oils to protect against viruses and bacteria. This is when the water of the Hungarian queen is created - first the medicine and the elixir of "youth", then the first perfume.


In the years 1880-1890, the first synthetic molecules - vanillin and coumarin - were created. Perfumers are delighted because they reduce the cost of producing perfumes. Only one hundred years later it turns out that coumarin is carcinogenic and vanillin is just a substitute for natural vanilla. Unfortunately, perfumery continued to develop synthetic perfume ingredients, also creating synthetic substances that extend the duration of the fragrance and its projection. The duration of the fragrance becomes synonymous for its quality (!), and the producers are able to reduce the amount of natural substances to a minimum. Many fragrances do not contain any natural substances. Consumers buy alcohol with synthetic molecules subdued with flavor enhancers and wild marketing.


When we started thinking about perfumes, we immediately decided that our fragrances must be made to the good old standards of the perfume craft. That is why we only use natural essential oils, absolutes and tinctures (which we make ourselves) in the highest concentration of extrait de parfum. Our perfumes are 100% natural, without any additives, projectors or fragrance enhancers. We want our fragrances to be remembered for a long time, to come back to them and to be the standard to which others are compared.


Our perfumes will smell different on everyone, they are discreet, blend with the natural scent of our skin, do not disturb it or mask it. Sometimes to feel them you have to bend down, bring your nose to your neck or wrist, other times, scattered by the wind, you can feel them around. Made in small batches, they are seasonal, which is why they are also variable, depending on the harvest and work of the last small manufactories distilling oils and obtaining absolutes. Natural perfumes are unisex, devoid of gender-specific marketing, they are the most democratic form of fragrance.


For those for whom this is the first contact with our perfumes and natural perfumes in general, we recommend starting your adventure with samples. This is a good way to test them in use.
