SCENT: Ambergris is an alleged aphrodisiac; it is used as a fixative to help scents last much longer and its perfume can be best described as marine, animal and sweet.
ORIGIN/PRODUCTION: Ambergris is a secretion from sperm whales who secrete a waxy paste to protect themselves from digestive irritation; it obtains its odor when in contact with salt and sun. The longer it floats on the water’s surface, the softer its scent. It is the most costly of all raw materials, worth around 10 times the price of gold.
SCENT: Scent resembles dark green leaves with a touch of hyacinth and jasmine
ORIGIN/PRODUCTION: Narcissus comes from the amaryllis family (along with Daffodils)
SCENT: Has a fresh, almost citrus-like aspect which counterparts a pronounced warm, woody, dominant theme
ORIGIN/PRODUCTION: Frankincense absolute is obtained from Boswellia trees, native to the Arabian peninsula & northeastern Africa
DISCLAIMER: Due to the use of natural oils, absolutes, and essences in strangelove’s perfumes, it is not uncommon for sediment or darkening to appear in your perfume. Over time, a perfume is subject to disintegration and oxidation of the natural ingredients in particular and sometimes, the alcohol can cause evaporation as well. These are normal occurrences for natural perfumes, similar to natural teas and wines.
