Ancient Rome

Originally released 8 July, 2017, re-released 6 March 2020.

Centering around Campania prior to 62CE, this collection is based on actual ancient Roman perfumes and fragrant flora, with a few slight variations added in. Some ingredients which were often used as skin scents, such as basil and labdanum, are in several blends, and we chose mostly plants native to the region, even though they did have imported botanicals, resins, and other fragrant ingredients once trade was established with distant lands (or they went over and conquered...). While these fragrances do contain a carrier of isopropyl myristate, none of the fragrance ingredients are synthetic.This does mean a heightened chance for skin sensitivity, and we recommend spot testing prior to wearing. Oils containing citrus (bergamot, lime, orange, etc) should not be worn on skin directly exposed to sunlight.
