Where the gold orange glows in the deep thickets gloom,
Where a wind ever soft, from the blue heaven blows,
And the groves are of laurel and myrtle and rose.”
The summer of 2007 marked the release of Vespertina™ Perfume in a liquid format. Two years later, on a very auspicious July 22nd, I introduce to you Vespertina™ as a solid perfume. On July 22nd there will be a total eclipse of the Sun with a length of duration of six minutes. July 22nd is also the day the Sun moves into Leo and the feast day of Mary Magdalene. All this provides a nice energetic blueprint for debuting Vespertina in her new attire.
The composition of the perfume is very similar to that of the liquid, containing essences associated with heightened consciousness like sandalwood and frankincense. The floral bouquet at the heart which bridges from base to middle is created with roses, jasmines and lotus. For the head notes spice is melded with citrus producing an opening similar to the liquid version yet with some differences as well. The solid perfume layers beautifully over the liquid perfume.
The aromatic synergy is completely plant based including: barks, flowers, fruits, leaves, resins, roots, seeds and woods. There are twenty botanical essences total in this formula. The base ingredients for the solid perfume are organic golden jojoba oil and pure beeswax. The beeswax is the only item in this fragrance that is non botanical.
Since the epic tale of Vespertina has a back story of her romance with the young knight Dante I added essences that have been c-distilled and attars. These components bring one essence that is the marriage of two separate parts, like Vespertina and Dante.
Vespertina is categorized as a floral perfume moving into the terrain of wood and oriental. Thus the dominant theme is romantic floral, with woody and oriental aspects peeking through.
