❦ A fragrance is a veritable story, told and explained in scent, in notes, in impressions. It’s a score based on the emotions of each instant, a captivating music of the senses. ❦
This time I have chosen special perfume line ~ April Aromatics. It is a natural perfume line, created by Tanja Bochnig, artisan, natural perfumer. Perfume for me is more than an extract it is a presence in abstraction. A perfume, for me, is a mystique. The line represents a range of natural perfumes and follows a holistic approach. Their ingredients are from pure and natural origin whenever possible. Perfumes are unique and hand blended with love and care. They are committed to use the highest quality of natural essences available from nature.
April Aromatics does not use animal derived ingredients, such as civet or ambergris, with the exception of beeswax extract in one of pour perfumes. The valuable perfumes are unique with regard to their formulation. Every scent is infused with individually chosen essences of semi-precious stones, which afford energy and harmony to the wearer. Each perfume is a journey in itself. The energy and intention that go into the creation are most important for them to complete a beautiful bouquet.
The perfumes are a mixture of botanical essences based in either organic jojoba oil for the roll on perfumes or organic grape spirit for our Eau de Parfums. As a natural emulsifier, which is a product that binds water and oil, used in their room and body mists, they use an all natural coconut derived substance.
One of my favorites is Calling all Angels, it is rather dark and complex angelic scent, with a sweet incense/ honey-like note, implementing the elements of Earth, Ether and Air. It envelops you in a luscious cloud of ambered incense, grounded by a resinous warm beeswax depth, and balanced by soft woods and tonka bean. This scent is infused with clear crystal and Herkimer diamond. Bottled on a Full Moon. Each bottle contains 24 karat gold flakes.
Calling All Angels was a winner in the Artisan category at the 2013 Art and Olfaction Awards.
April Aromatics is also Winner of Art and Olfaction Award 2014. The perfumes were also published in many glam magazines like Vogue, Marie Claire and more. Enjoy! 🌹
