About


My mission is to revive the lost art of artisanal perfumery. I plan to establish a physical perfumery  boutique in Melbourne, Australia and an online boutique. I will only use only natural essences, oils and precious absolutes to craft small batches and hand made formulations. My products will be positioned as a much needed alternative to conventional, synthetic and mass produced perfumes without compromising on luxury. I  will also offer a bespoke service for  clients and will work closely with them to bring  a scent they have envisioned to life.

Risks and challenges

The majority of funds will be spent on premises overheads and raw materials.

Raw natural ingredients for perfumery are extremely expensive - for example 1 kilo of orange blossom oil costs upwards of $15, 000 AUD! This is the reason why modern perfumery utilises synthetic and, at times, harmful chemicals - to reduce operating costs and increase profit margins.

As my vision is to use only true and precious essences, naturally this will take up a significant portion of funding.

The perfume will be set in beeswax from my own bee hives in a beautiful glass jar.

    Pure Jasmine solid perfume

    This is a solid perfume created using pure Egyptian Jasmine absolute - using only natural botanical Jasmine to scent it. Jasmine is considered the King of all flowers; it is mood elevating, driving away depression and awakens passion. It is naturally one of the most expensive perfumery ingredients in the world. Modern mass perfumery utilises synthetic aroma chemicals to invoke the scent of Jasmine, however, with over 400 scent molecules in naturally occurring Jasmine, the synthetic compounds are a mere pale ghost of true Jasmine. If you have a negative impression of Jasmine, it may be because your scent memory is of synthetic Jasmine. I am excited to offer this pure creation of true Jasmine to change your mind on this point.

    The perfume will be set in beeswax from my own bee hives in a beautiful glass jar.

    The RRP of this item will be $150.00 AUD in the perfumery boutique.
