We pride ourselves on our completely natural fragrances with transparent ingredient lists, and unlike most other brands who claim to make natural fragrances, our perfumes are 100% essential oil based and contain no extra additives to extend the wear time of the ingredients. This means that the amount of time the scent of the perfume stays on your skin depends on the ingredients in each of the individual fragrances.
All of our perfumes are well-concentrated (a traditional eau de parfum ratio,) but the scents with strong base note ingredients will stay on your skin longer, where as our lighter fragrances will dissipate more quickly.
We love offering a wide range of fragrances to suit every preference, and don’t believe that wear time is an indicator of quality. (That’s actually an idea that was introduced back when perfumers first started working with artificial fragrances as a way to make their cheap synthetic ingredients seem more appealing to their customers!) #themoreyouknow
The amount of time that a scent lingers on your skin is dependent on many different factors - an individual’s unique body chemistry, the temperature and humidity levels in the air, how well moisturized your skin is, and your own perception - no two noses smell alike and some are waaaayyyyy more sensitive than others!
However, as a general guide, here’s a good place to start:
If you want your scent to last all day go for:
pétiller, luscious, beau spice, close, bad hombre, the asterisk collection
If you don’t want it to disappear too quickly but don’t mind re-applying in the later in the day (or want to change scents from day to night) go for:
adore, blissed, dope queen, cat buttons, florcore, mulholland, dolce vita, nasty woman, mamacita, pink mafia
If you don’t care how long it lasts (or just love taking a #selfcare moment to re-apply during the day) go for:
basic, duchess, goddess, wave
