THE SPRING-FRESH SCENT OF LILAC HAS NEVER BEFORE BEEN BOTTLED TO SUCH PERFECTION.
Elusive and shy, like a dancing spring-sprite peeking from behind a blushing bush, our Lilac Lady Perfume can only be coaxed by the most delicate distillation methods. This super-critical extraction presses past the standardized and synthesized, offering the purest essence of lilac in all its ethereal glory.
The Lilac (Syringa vulgaris) remains extremely rare because it is so difficult to distill. The flower’s effulgent aroma is elusive as the petals do not easily offer its scent to all who attempt to capture it.
Traditionally, lilac fragrance was created by picking only the warmest blossoms that had bloomed in the morning sun. The flowers would then be rushed to a still-room where they were treated using a process known as enfleurage. This process created an incredibly thick, odorous perfume that was then diluted with refined alcohols like potato vodka.
Enfleurage diminished the natural essence of the flower, masking the lilac with alcohol and other synthetic agents. Pure lilac remains so expensive that lilac-scented products found in stores are synthesized imitations of the true floral essence.
In the heart of our garden, the elusive lilac has revealed herself to us, appearing in between moments of shadows and streams of morning sunlight. Using methods of ancient alchemy, the lilac has surrendered herself to our senses, stimulating our top chakras and enveloping us in gentle purity.
Lilac Lady Petal Perfume may be used to melt stress and tension, infuse the heart with joy, relax the mind, and bless new beginnings.
Just now the lilac is in bloom
All before my little room;
And in my flower beds I think,
Smile the carnation and the pink;
And from the borders, well I know,
The poppy and the pansy blow.
~ Rupert Brooke
