On the outskirts of town, down a tree-lined, twisting road, rests an old villa. The house has gone to ruin, and its manicured garden has succumbed to nature's relentless march forward.
In the centre of the garden, you spot a grove of citrus trees ripe with fruit. Lured by the juicy orbs, you fight your way through a tangle of climbing roses and berry-laden brambles.
Alas, it has started to rain. You seek cover in the dense conifer forest beyond the overgrown garden. A few heavy drops splatter your face, and you look skyward, reveling as the scents from the Tangled Garden and damp forest mingle with the rain.
All House of Forbidden Fruit perfumes contain only natural ingredients sourced from plant essential oils, absolutes, CO2 extracts, tinctures and isolates, and occasionally sustainable animal products like honey, beeswax, ambergris, africa stone and castoreum. They do not contain petrochemicals, parabens, glycols, dyes, synthetic materials of any kind. All perfumes are aged for a minimum of six weeks in un-denatured neutral spirit alcohol locally distilled on Vancouver Island.
House of Forbidden Fruit perfumes have a 20% concentration of aromatics to increase longevity and projection. You can expect the evolution from the diffusive opening notes to the heavier base notes to take between 3-8 hours, depending on your skin and the environment (humidity and temperature).
Allergens are difficult to predict, and House of Forbidden Fruit perfumes contain concentrated plant and animal materials that may cause allergies/reactions. Do not apply to broken or inflamed skin, and stop using immediately if you develop any allergic reactions. Consult physician prior to use if pregnant or nursing.
Natural perfumes typically have a smaller silage (projection) than synthetic perfumes, and in my experience are therefore less likely to cause irritation to others.
Natural perfumes are typically best used within two years. Your perfume will not “go bad” after this time, but some of the delicate top notes may oxidize, altering the original scent. To extend the life of your perfume, keep it in a cool, dry place. Do not store in a humid environment like the bathroom.
The materials I use are naturally pigmented and may stain fabric. Avoid spraying on clothing.
