Imagine Gorgeous Scents without the Synthetics

Imagine being able to wear fragrances without the unfortunate side effects that often seem to come along with them.

That's what I did. Because I was tired of perfumes that made me headachy, or itchy, or sneezy (or worse).

And I was tired of the samey-same fragrances that I smelled everywhere hijacking my nose with their flat, fake-smelling scents.

And I didn't want to be a part of the problem where environmental issues are concerned, the way products that contain synthetics and petrochemicals are.

I wanted to be healthier than that. And more original than that. And more mindful than that.

So I started making my own perfumes. Rich, modern perfumes created exclusively with the world's finest botanical essences. I call it aromatic luxury without compromise.

Each of my perfumes is hand-blended in small batches with one-hundred percent green ingredients and no synthetic anything. There are no unpronounceable ingredients in sight. Everything that goes into my perfumes — every sublimely aromatic natural essence — is meant to make your world less toxic, not more.

Ironically, as a person with lifelong allergies, the last thing I ever thought I would turn out to be was a perfumer. For as long as I could remember, I had avoided perfumes and all other scented products like the proverbial plague. I couldn’t even use scented soap or light a scented candle without negative health consequences.

Back then, it seemed the beauty and joy of fragrance — inviting, evocative, sensuous — was not meant for me. Or so I thought.

But that was before I understood the crucial differences between natural and synthetic fragrance ingredients. Because once I understood that my inability to tolerate scented products was due to their fake scent ingredients, a whole new world opened up to me. (An in-depth look at natural vs. synthetic fragrance ingredients will be the focus of a future blog post.) 

Following an instinct to immerse myself in the benefits of healthy plant-based scents, I studied aromatherapy, and then developed an aromatherapy-based organic body care line. Eventually I took an even deeper dive into the essences and began creating fine fragrances using only botanical ingredients.

Finally, I was able to wear and enjoy perfumes — pure, plant-based perfumes that created no health problems for me.

So I’m totally driven by the desire to bring you both beauty and well-being through scent — not to compromise your health with the thousands of unhealthful (and often untested) synthetic fragrance molecules, aroma chemicals and “safe synthetics” that are used by the conventional perfume industry to maximize their profits.

Using my perfumer's palette of over three hundred natural essences from renewable plant sources (many of them rare and precious ingredients), I bring you truly luxurious fragrances that are entirely free of synthetics and petrochemicals.

No expense is spared in creating our authentic botanical line of Parfum and Eau de Parfum.

So if you love to wear fragrance but are concerned about being bombarded with toxic ingredients, or you care about the environment, or you just prefer the luxury of the real thing — our perfumes may be just want you’ve been looking for. Claudia xx
