New perfum oil bottles

Gee, I haven’t posted here for a while. Time to rectify that with some great news.

At long last, I have managed to find some really nice little bottles from a local supplier that are perfect for the oil based versions of Evocative perfumes. I am having to default to the oil based versions of all of the perfumes because of the paranoid postage restrictions on sending alcohol by airmail (how do other small perfumer’s do it? The eternal question.)  So from now on, the oils are the default choice on the website, with the alcohol based atomisers now being an option only for Australian customers.

After a bit of experimentation, I’ve found a mix of low flammable oils that has good solubility (some perfumery materials are not easy to dissolve!) as well as a nice silky feel on the skin and also no problems with staining or allergies or background smell or off colours etc.  It’s mainly jojoba oil based.

On other news, work is progressing well on new perfumes for the range…

Let’s see, there is a masculine, herbal, spicy, dark green concoction which I have named Matricaria, another masculine one named Original Fern which is a classic fougère also green and earthy, old fashioned and very manly.

Miel a Fleur is a smooth, rich, honeyed floral with notes of honeysuckle and tuberose.

More news about these new perfumes over the coming weeks.
