few special gems from our perfume archives. Quantities are very limited (some have only 2-3 bottles available). Most of these have our newer labels with artwork. ALL are in 5ml amber bottles unless otherwise specified.

Many of these perfumes have ingredients that are no longer available and can never be blended again.

  • Absinthe and Laudanum in the Afternoon: An intemperate intoxication of galbanum, laudanum accord, tonka bean, French root and narcotic wormwood swooning into a euphoric delirium of opium poppy, poet's jasmine, and French lavender.
  • Acadia:  A portrait of coastal Maine - balsam fir pine needles and oceanic Atlantic fog tinged with seaweed, bay leaves, saltwater, and charred driftwood. 
  • Amour Conjure: An erotic, exotic blend of amber aged with Bourbon vanilla pods, Ceylon cinnamon infused flirtatious aldehydes, Bulgarian roses, rose geranium and vetivert roots, copper distilled patchouli, and a scattering of incense resins.
  • Autumn: Sun warmed fallen leaves, golden sunlit amber, light wool warmed with skin musk.
  • Caffaeum: Five year aged black amber, Arabian coffee, Labdanum, Benzoin
  • Calaveras de Azucar: Hauntingly sweet sugar skulls nestled against a backdrop of sugared white ambers.
  • Douceur de Vivre: An exquisite sweetness of Antillian sugar cane, flowering ginger, hibiscus, white amber, green fig, and the delicate essence of fresh coconut water kissed by a careless splash of white rum.
  • Dusk in Autumn: An inviting mystery of amberwood, Lapsang Souchong tea, salted cream caramel, and spiced teacakes.
  • Feuillemort: A meditative rumination of dying leaves, smoked autumnal spices, dried grasses and fungi, Tibetan incense, cedarwood, rum soaked agarwood, and borneol. 
  • Flowers & Flames: A compelling intrigue of mandarin citrus peel, bourgeons de cassis, verbena, elderflower, honey mango with a sensually arboreal heart of Atlas cedar, musky oakmoss, Trilisa odoratissima, dark green patchouli, black frankincense sacra, tonka bean, and soft leather.
  • For Love of Winter: A warm winter layer of luminous white amber and cool snow musk with hints of candy canes and white chocolate pearls.
  • Hex: A conjuration of frangipani and night-blooming Moroccan flowers, all-spice, black tea, Madagascar vanilla, Tonka, sweet benzoin resin, black amber, frankincense, vetiver, and a caress of patchouli. Complex. Arousing.
  • Kintsukuroi:  A radiant illumination of Japanese musk, regal white amber, calming white floral aldehydes, delicate Kyoto roses, yuzu, Asian pear, water lotus, and silk tree flowers.  
  • L’Esprit des Fetes: A festivity of almond marzipan, amaretto hot toddies, and amber musk with balsam boughs, winterberry, copper distilled patchouli, and aged sandalwood 
  • Mon Beau Sapin: Fresh cut pine, labdanum incense, oakmoss, and rosewood adorned with tart dried apples, Mandarin orange peel, coriander, caraway, woodsmoked figs, Date plums, and a touch of dark aged patchouli.
  • Patchouli Cacao: A dark and decadent romance of ultra-rich bittersweet Maralumi cacao, aged Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, and a blonde Indonesian patchouli single note that encompasses musk, earth, ambergris, wood, and tabac
  • Profumata de Tortona: Rare Profumata di Tortona musk strawberries bathed in cream musk and rosé wine
  • Silvern: An ethereally illuminating blend of white sandalwood, cool aquatics, crystalline blue musk, and ice flowers threaded with faint memories of white blossoms.
  • Sorciere Rouge: Bakhoor incense from a 13th century recipe, Tibetan agar-wood, and Dragon's Blood infused with Rock Rose and dark amber.
  • Sugar Spell: A dulcet collection of supernaturally tempting treats - candy corn, cream caramels, Turkish delight, dulce de cayeci, black currant drops, caramelized brown sugar, licorice, marshmallows, New Orleans pralines, candied tangerine peel, jasmine, and sugar musk.
  • Sun Dried Laundry in a Summer Rain: Stonewashed linen and clean, sun-dried cotton billowing gently on an old fashioned clothesline spattered by the first gently ozonic drops of a  Maine summer rain.
  • Vanille Patchouli: Purest vanilla seduced and despoiled by wild, dirty patchouli.
