Does your skin chemistry seem to 'drink' fragrance? Do you find that you have to reapply your favorite scents over and over to get longevity? A perfume fixative may help. Fixatives are used In perfumery to retain fragrance on the wearer for as long as possible by slowing down the evaporation rate of the perfume's aromatic components. It is important to note that our fixative is NOT odorless (the smell is reminiscent of a slightly wintergreeny musk that dries down to a soft powder with a touch of papery vanilla). The scent should be able to blend well with most perfumes (including non-Alkemia ones) without throwing the composition too far out of balance, but since everyone's chemistry and scent preference is unique, we strongly suggest you try a sample vial first and experiment. Like our perfumes, our fixative is a petroleum, alcohol, phthalate, and paraben free blend of natural essences and safe synthetics. It is blended in a nut-free hypoallergenic oil base to help ensure proportional olfactory balance with your favorite perfume oils. Comes packaged in a 4 ml. rollerball bottle.
How to use: Dab very lightly onto the areas of skin where you wear your perfume oil and blend. The oil base will absorb quickly and optimize the preparation of your skin by providing an undercoat of smoothness and moisturization. Allow a minute for absorption and then apply your favorite perfume.
"Love is not love
Which alters when its alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken."
