Visette’s 3 signature blends were created for aromatic effect following traditional methods used historically in fragrance making—long before synthetic fragrances were created and when all fragrances were made using plant and animal oils.
Each Visette blend contains 5 different essential (plant) oils, and is carefully crafted as a fragrance chord—balancing the base, middle and top notes. A fixative note is included in each blend to extend the life of the fragrance.
I created these blends after more than a decade mixing essential oils and creating products that I shared with friends. This journey started when someone gave me a copy of Essence and Alchemy: A Natural History of Perfume.
Essence and Alchemy is a fascinating book by Mandy Aftel, which contains everything you need to know to about the history and process of fragrance making using essential oils.
This book is sure to be of interest to anyone who wishes to start their own journey working with essential oils, or anyone who wants to better understand and appreciate the art of fragrance making.
