The very first official Leafology perfume is finally here!
A total sensorial delight, this is an enchanting, luscious blend which somehow speaks to me of burgeoning blossom and fecundity in full bloom! It’s a real treat to apply and allow to drift – somewhat hypnotically – into the air around you.
The layered notes of essential oils play differently with every person on contact with skin, creating a magnetic allure which is unique and individual. It doesn’t travel far – you have to be close to smell it, so it’s perfect for sensitive skin and tastes; the base is ultra-gentle rice bran with an infusion of matcha green tea (because why shouldn’t a perfume impart goodness, nourishment and ‘do no harm’?). Choose, with me, nurturing nutrients over unhealthy chemicals which disrupt our systems.
While creating Bloom, I was initially inspired by the fragrance interplay of two of my beloved, bestselling formulations (the Moon Mist and the Precious Petals Beauty Balm); then I allowed my instincts to test ‘dashes of this’ and ‘drops of that’ adding and removing, until I had something truly stand-alone, distinctive and unique.
The scent: innocent, romantic rose, plus neroli, black pepper, nutmeg, pink grapefruit, mandarin, sandalwood, bergamot, lavender, patchouli and ho leaf…. All combine to create a sweet dreamscape and add gentle magic to your daily experience.
This is destined to become a signature scent for those in love with plant-based goodness.
Uses & Directions:
Apply whenever you like, to wrists and pulse points. Expect the fragrance to linger for a few hours, or longer (it is not ‘fixed’ by alcohol, but does sink softly into the skin).
