Tomorrow evening we will be at 78th Street Studios in the studio space of Jeff Dube and Allen Kradlak. We have been working on a new item, something romantic, and different….. Solid Perfumes.
Historically, ointment-like solid perfumes have been used since Egyptian times. Normally the substance that gives the perfume its base comes from a type of wax that is initially melted. Once melted, a scent or several scents may be added and then further developed until the cream base reaches the desired consistency.
Solid perfume is used either by rubbing a finger against it and then onto skin or dipping a cotton swab into it and then onto the skin. As side benefit of the solid perfume is the moisturizing quality to the skin. When rubbed on pulse points the essential oil remains and provides consistent fragrance.
While we did a test run of the solid perfumes at a recent event, this is our full roll out of both 1 oz tins and romantic lockets. Solid perfume is a blend of beeswax, shea butter, a bit of carrier oil and the essential oil. For this roll out of the solid perfume we have chosen 3 scents:
- English Rose – Fresh Cut Rose Essential Oil is blended with a touch of Oak Moss Essential Oil and Orange Essential oil. Rose takes the primary note, but is balanced by a crisp citrus bottom note.
- Lavender Lemon – Clean bright lavender is softened by the scent of litsia cubiba, which is a strong lemon essence. The middle note of this blend is a hint of rosemary.
- Spicy Pear – Fresh Pear fragrant oil is blended with clove essential oil, ginger essential oil and a hint of black cherry fragrant oil for a fruity fresh scent.
I will have them in limited supply this friday at 78th Street Studios. Hope to see you … come out and try a vintage piece of fun.
