This week marks the 6 year anniversary of my composition of one of my best parfum designs: Her Majesty. It was as it turns out an ode to my mother, with all her femininity, an organic version of the mash up of scents that Mom loved, including Chanel No. 5, Estee Lauder White Linen, Joy, and a few other classics.
It all started with a three week infusion/tincture of pear and continued on for months, creating this amazingly mature and beautiful deep amber oriental parfum. I love wearing this parfum during winter months, when the air outside is crisp, the weather is chilly and the skies are grey with storms. It warms me inside and out with the beauty and memory of nostalgia.
This Parfum was created at Thanksgiving Week in 2010. It started with a 3 week long infusion of organic pears in perfumer's alcohol. The name was created as a response to the astrological aspects that were activating at that time, which included the deep resonance of our internal passionate fires that burn bright within us creatively. Pele is the goddess of the volcano. It is us as Pele who slays the inner dragon and creates a consistent flow of lava in our lives. This is the most passionate parfum that I have created. It supports our urges as women to want to have it all, to manifest and to burn through all obstacles on the way.
Then, it was filtered. Three weeks. To this I added:
After this tinctured infusion, I made the parfum with the following ingredients added in:
Sandalwood, Light Fraction, very woody
The scent lays heavily on the air, when spritzed. It is a very mature oriental amber parfum. It reminds me of the deep love and respect I have for the empress archetype, the mother.
I showcase the image of the perfume with pearls as they both have that similar vibration of womanhood.
For those who are looking for a source parfum that can become their signature scent, and love something that hovers around them, this is your scent.
