Q: You say you're cruelty free but the notes include ingredients such as musk. Can you explain?
A: Perfume notes are not the same as ingredients. They are simply a description of what you will smell. For example a leather based perfume contains no actual leather. None of our fragrances contain animal products. We use wizardry to recreate the scents without them.
Q: How long do your scents last?
A: This will differ from person to person, climate to climate and whether there are ingredients in the base that you are anosmic to (can't smell) such as some musks. For this reason we always suggest trying our samples first.
Q: Are your scents unisex?
A: Absolutely. Scent has no gender.
Q: Why is international shipping of your full bottles so expensive?
A: Perfumes have to ship with special precautions and this means we can't just pop a 50ml bottle in the post. We in fact subsidise the shipping cost to soften the blow as much as we can. US customers are lucky that we hold some stock in Forest Hill GA - if your item is out of stock there may be a delay whilst we replenish the US warehouse.
Q: Do your scents contain phthalates?
A: A trace amount in our alcohol. There is no evidence that these amounts cause any harm to the body.
Q: Are your perfumes all natural?
A: No. Natural ingredients are some of the most regulated due to their much higher risk of causing allergic reactions when compared to synthetic ingredients. We use the perfect balance of both to create a balanced fragrance.
Q: Why do most of your scents contain musk?
A: The misconceptions surrounding musks are huge. Most people associate the word with animalic scents of animal origin, but that just isn't true. Musks in perfumery tend to be large molecules that are present all the way to the end of the perfume's journey. Some indeed are reminiscent of natural animal musks but are non-animal derived recreations. Some are bright and clean. Some are fruity and sweet. Some are transparent and soft and help tie down more flighty perfume notes. So next time you give a perfume a miss because you see the word "musk," perhaps give it a chance and it might surprise you!
