A GIFT WITHIN ITSELF
One of my favorite unique and well-respected natural perfumeries in the US is Providence Perfume Company. This perfumery is owned and operated by Charna Ethier who is bringing excitement and hand-crafted perfumeries using the finest ingredients to humankind.
Charna created a deep rosy fragrance that is rich in aged patchouli and sensual notes of ancient agarwood and one using the most expensive spice in the world and that is saffron.
This magnificient creation is ROSE BOHEME. It is my TOP gift for this season for anyone you know into natural perfumes. It is a beautiful introduction to Providence Perfume Company.
ROSE BOHEME Eau de Parfum offers a warm presence with a fascinating twist to the rose scent. This scent is truly an original and I love wearing it in cold weather. The sillage follows you as if you can see it wafting in the air.
I wore it to mass the other day and it smelled heavenly with the incense in the cathedral. This is a rarity to wear a natural scent or any scent that you can actually enjoy and feel it working. Simply amazing!!
Notes: aged Patchouli, fir, red tea, rare white rose essential, agarwood, saffron, turkish rose, artisan rose petal infusion.
$115.00 USD 1 ounce Atomizer $26.00 USD 6ML Travel Atomizer $11.00 USD Sample
Charna's gift of the scent continues to spread with the creation of INDOLICE.
INDOLICE Eau de Parfum sparkles with some of my favorite notes. It is a wonderful addition to your holiday list of fragrances. It is another original scent that Charna masterfully arranges with rich notes of heady jasmine and an oasis of "indolic mushrooms". This chrypre fragrance has a blend oak moss, cilantro and basil to perfect this fragrance.
I can see myself wearing this on New Years Eve. It has the exact quality and elegance to bring in the New Year with glamour. Charna describes it as "a bit dirty, a bit vintage and highly original". Charna is absolutely correct and this is why INDOLICE is so attractive because it is "highly original". That is what I love about niche and natural fragrances.
PROVIDENCE PERFUME COMPANY will open up your world of exploring new and unique fragrances that are allow to work with you and enrich your awareness and enhance the endless possibilities of perfumery.
