When it comes to perfume, choosing a completely natural fragrance is paramount. And is it just me, or does it seem nigh on impossible to find deliciously beautiful natural ones?
Personally, I’m always a little hesitant to jump in and spritz a scent on my skin. The number of times I’ve picked up a bottle stating that it’s ‘natural’ or been assured by the shop assistant that it certainly is, only to find out later that it’s a combination of natural and synthetic scents. Not cool. So, I tread extra carefully in the world of fragrance.
On a slightly different topic … I’ve been learning about, engaging with and experiencing the world of colour for a number of years now. I find it deeply fascinating! So when a box of ime Natural Perfume arrived in the post (thanks to an introduction by one of our much loved customers) I was particularly interested to see whether this was just another pretty looking natural fragrance that let the team down in terms of depth and/or integrity, or whether it had been created with an understanding and awareness about the intriguing relationship between colour, the sub-conscious mind and the plant kingdom.
What I discovered … was way more impressive than I had hoped or expected. Don’t you love it when that happens?
Instead of sniffing my way from left to right, I decided to put ime Natural Perfume to the test, and chose the colours that I naturally gravitate towards – ‘my colours’. I was interested to see if the colours that I be, were the fragrances that I liked within the ime Natural Perfume collection. To be honest, I was just doing it this way as a bit of a play around. I never expected that this beautiful range would be so accurate. Silly me!
To my absolute delight, I loved my three choices (pictured right). So much so that I could hardly contain my excitement. It’s gems like this that I search the world for, so that benaturallyou.com can remain true to it’s purpose … providing you with natural products that work. (Not the predictable, performance-lacking mass-produced brands easily found in health food stores.) Please excuse my bluntness … but a spade is, after all, a spade.
Tonia Walker – the creator of ime – has nailed it! Not only are the fragrances natural, vegan, ethical and free from toxins (that bring on those awful headaches so commonly triggered by conventional fragrances), they are created with love and an incredible awareness about the correlation between colour and scent, otherwise known as cross-synaethesia.
What you’ll also love about Tonia’s beautifully unique perfumes:
- The fragrances are pure botanical essential oils sourced from around the world.
- The base is a botanical ethanol (grain or cane) from locally produced Australian sources. (Gluten & GMO free).
- FREE of artificial and animal fragrances, colours, phthalates, parabens or synthetic ingredients.
- A whole lot of inspiration!
Something you might also want to keep it mind: Natural perfumes uniquely respond to your body’s own chemistry when placed on the skin. Therefore the lasting ability of a perfume can vary from person to person. The botanical alcohol base Tonia uses is pure and gentle on the skin and contains no toxic chemicals for enhancing or fixing a perfume as found in synthetic based perfumes. ime Natural Perfumes generally last approximately 4 – 6 hours.
