All the local lavendar farms have been harvesting all of their flowers. The imagery has been so amazing. LOVE the scents in the garden also. This is a great time of year to pick up LAVENDAR PARFUM and LAVENDAR FLOWER WATER from LPO. Freshly made and so beautiful for summer. Try some in your next online order.
Yes, this Parfum has been in the works for over two years.
It started as a response to the beautiful wild orchards we have on the #SLOWCOAST tucked into meadows, valleys and canyons.
The scents wafting are always amazing and as I have been solidly meditating on this parfum for the past five years, actively designing and preparing the tinctures, from the wilderness and garden for the past two to three, and making adjustments in the formula, this will add to my Landscape Parfum Series that evokes Scent Memories of Place, Person and Beingness. Memories of Vacations, moments spent together.
There is an infusion from the gardens. There are three active gardens that I do harvest from along with the wild plants in the same gated properties. These are protected organic lands.
The flowers, leaves, and fruits in Wild Orchard include:
Other elements that are in the surrounding gardens and in this parfum because they waft so amazingly are rock rose: cistus which creates labdanum, amber.
Including Agar Musk as an animalic nod to the Pumas that have been gracing us with their nightly presence.
More specifics will be divulged soon. The colour of this parfum is a beautiful green.
Zenith Time of Year: Longest Days, Sunshine, Outdoor Activities, Gardening.
All these things beg that we pay better attention to our skin care and beauty regime now.
Specifically here are some simple organic and ethically wildcrafted products that I designed to help with these beautiful summer days.
Almond Meal Facial Scrub: I like to mix this with ripe avocado and some Angel Glow Serum to apply once a week to exfoliate my face, neck and decolletage. Can be used to remove dirt and pollution, grime. Smoothly with circular motion apply around face, stay clear of sensitive eye area. Rinse off and follow with our Sensitive Skin Facial Wash.
Sensitive Skin Facial Wash: This is inspired from an ayurvedic recipe for sensitive skin. I use this on my face, neck, decolletage, and entire body when showering, and in between at night or a good morning. It has all the essential oils that support your beauty regime.
Lavendar or Rose Bulgarian Flower Water: I always have one of these or both during the day in one of my travel bags to spritz on my face. The base is a distilled H20 with a light EO and can help tone our pores, refresh our skin and uplift us. It is a MUST in SUMMER.
Angel Glow Serum: This is my favourite GO TO Facial Serum that I love daily to follow toning. I roll on into my palm and then apply over my face, using round circular motions to lightly massage into skin. I keep applying as the day goes on, as this is a good helper to moisturize and nourish skin.
Prana Serum: I apply to my legs, feet, to keep circulation going, and all pulse points. It is a great moisturizer also, with the essential oils of eucalyptus, peppermint and lavendar. I always have one of these 10ml roll ons with me to use post bare foot beach experience.
Sandalwood Powder: I love using this Sandalwood Powder all over my arms, hands and forearms to smooth skin tone, and refresh my skin before I use the Solid Parfum.
Lavendar Bergamot Solid Parfum: I love to use this solid parfum on the back of my hands to smooth and moisturize skin, on my nose bridge, ears, neck, decolletage as a finishing serum over top of my Angel Glow to protect my skin. I love to go over my feet, heels, and toes after a day at the beach, and a shower where I work on a soothing Sensitive Facial wash.
I follow with a sprit of a few of my favourite Soliflore Parfums in my hair and on my clothes. I work one or two scents into the palm of my hand and then waft my hands over my face hair, neck, shoulders and down my arms, behind my knees. I like to embue the scents into the etheric field around me as well as into the blood through the pulse points.

How it works:
You arrive scent free, with minimal spicy foods eaten in the 24 hr period prior to your appointment. Appointments are scheduled for 10am in the LPO Perfume Studio in Davenport. They last for approximately 2 hrs. We serve light herbal infused waters during your Scent Journey. Please allow for your sleeves to be rolled up to try on scents on wrists, arms up to your elbows. Everything is grown organically and/ or ethically wildcrafted.
As we walk through our Scent Journey one scent at a time, you can experience the way these light soliflore and landscape parfums can be layered, and even how you may wish to create your own signature scent from the ideas we present.
This is always a good first step in creation.
