Botanical fragrances: a gift from nature

natural perfumes, aromatherapy consulting, essential oils, healing aromasWhen it comes to natural botanical perfume versus synthetic fragrances it should come as no surprise that all natural perfumes derived from natural botanical sources may hold the key to many positive life affirming and health-giving properties whereas manmade synthetic copies prove more hazardous to health.
The precious essential oils from various flowers, resins, spices and fruits have been carefully claimed by gentle processes over many the centuries.
 
Natural perfumery, with a 4000 year history, is linked to nature, beauty and ritual. Not only are they aromatically aesthetic, but they impart therapeutic benefits.
 
A quote from scientist Luca Turin reveals the secret behind mainstream perfumery  - including‘fine fragrances’,  Luca  comments on typical perfume ingredients :
“The proportion of man made to natural varies: By weight, synthetics usually make up more than 90% of a fragrance... A typical synthetic may cost $50 per kilogram, a typical natural at least $500 per kilo, with many naturals reaching ten or a hundred times that”.* 
 
*pp.31, Perfumes The Guide, Luca Turin & Tania Sanchez, Publ. Profile Books,  London 2008.
 
On a perfume label  - 'Key notes of Sandalwood' may mean 'Key notes of Polysantol' ( a fragrance chemical made in a lab at a fraction of the cost of real Sandalwood ) and it is the same story with other expensive notes such as Rose, Vanilla, & Jasmine.
 
The natural perfumer conducts the business at a very personal level, the artisan model. The bottles or compacts or body care containers are filled by hand, typically; the entire process is personal. The natural perfumer is also an artist that you may turn to to develop a personal, signature scent for yourself at an affordable cost. Such a service is not in the business plan of the big mainstream perfume houses unless perhaps you are a celebrity or have a small fortune to spend for such an individualized service.
