Botanical Perfumery is a revelation for those who have never experienced the use of real plant essences in their perfumes before. Traditional perfumes were made using these subtle essences because it was understood that each plant and flower, seed pod or resin deposit, contained its own unique Energy Signature, and when combined with the more potent aromatics, the perfume created became a remarkable potion...more than mere 'scent' or fragrance.
Magic Earth Mumma perfumes are formulated in this traditional method of perfumery, using ingredients gathered from my property, wild gatherings, and from other growers who have refined their art of extracting the vital, potent aromatic ingredients from plants.
Each perfume is created in small-batch quantities and bottled in limited edition packaging. I take part in every facet of the production of the perfumes I create. They are hand blended, matured, bottled and packaged by the maker (me), produced in boutique/micro-batch quantities with care and attention.
Cruelty-free & Vegan:
Botanical perfumery is compiled using essential oils, CO2 extractions, absolutes and macerations/infusions of botanical material in botanical oil, to create beautiful, naturally cruelty-free perfumes suitable for use by those following a Vegan philosophy lifestyle, and by those of us who value our animal family and wish to protect them from exploitation.
The term 'Musk' used in my descriptions refers to components and accords (blends or collections of various botanical ingredients to produce a scent style) that are concocted purely from botanical sources. It is a description of a sweet, animalistic, sensuous, inviting scent that is used sparingly within the construction of the perfume, to entice and allure.
(If I do ever use a product that is derived from an animal byproduct eg: honeycomb or 'africa stone', I will list it in the ingredients and label that perfume as 'non-vegan'.)
The Scent Story:
Amber scents are pretty much everything I need because they can contain so many notes from Oriental, Sweet, Floral and Herb, down into the Woodsy resins and Earthy anchors. I've deeply enjoy developing botanical accords that begin from this delicious base.
The inspiration for Amber Waves comes from the bright to dark hues of honey, the study of bees; how they survive and thrive within the ecosystem, and how their lives are intrinsically woven into the fabric of life on our planet.
When it came to creating a perfume that made you think of pure golden beauty I knew it would come from one of the amber accords which I've paired with an artisan tincture of wild-harvested beeswax from an abandoned hive (may or may not be considered Vegan,...it's up to you). It brings together those energy signatures of nature encapsulated, the tremendous genius of the apis kingdom, the ability to protect and prevail and the seasonal associations we have with this incredible medicine.
So, ... have you heard of Synaesthesia? It's the ability to perceive one sense through the activation of another, or others. For me, scent always comes with a colour, perhaps a sound too, often a texture, sometimes a definitive landscape visual and in rare cases a taste sensation as well. Amber scents are always gloriously voluptuous with rich depths of aromatic colours that generate from golds through to dark ombres. They move and shift with hints of citrus, incense and caramel. They arrive like large golden waves shot with ribbons of metallic light.
It reminds me of seeing boiled sweets being made and the way the artisan sweet maker so deftly controls that large mass of toffee coloured, melted sugar. With Amber Waves I have attempted to display the essence of the experience I have with scent. I hope you enjoy visualising, feeling, sniffing and listening to its gift.
