Amber is inspired by the golden resin running in the veins of
exotic trees such as "boswella" (frankincense), "styrax"
(benzoin) and "commiphora" (myrrh). Worn by both women
and men, Amber is gently sweet and luxuriant with a soft, powdery
Derived from an herb native to India, Patchouli is renowned for
its effect of bringing one down to earth. Popularized hundreds
of years ago by merchants on the Asian spice routes who used it
to scent Kashmir shawls, patchouli became the signature fragrance
of hippies during the 1960s. This patchouli has been aged in oak
casks and is considered by connoisseurs to be the finest available.

delicate, fresh - vivacious, yet understated. A perfume that always
A classic earthy fragrance, pungent, with overtones of sweetness,
roundness and spiciness, Sandalwood inspires creativity and new

White Musk is a delightfully delicate, fresh and wonderful fragrance!
It is elegant, subtle and clean ... like liquid light. This musk

Reminiscent of a classic French perfume, Sula is favored by connoisseurs
of fine fragrance. Sula includes base notes of musk and sandalwood,
an exquisite magnolia heart note, and a bouquet of citrus at the

consciousness" fashion after the perfume was created.
Ishi is an exquisite pure essential oil blend of the sacred herbs
used by the Native peoples of North America during smudging ceremonies.
This perfume was created to celebrate the life of the last Native
North American to make contact with the white man. Ishi was the
last surviving member of his tribe and living a Stone Age existence
when he emerged from the Sierra Nevada Mountains in 1911. An exquisite
blend of sweet grass and sage, grounded by cedar and oak moss.
Traditionally, patchouli and sweet grass are like oil and water,
they aren't supposed to mix. But the master blenders at La Parfumerie
have taken these dissonant notes and combined them with other
oils and resins to create a complex harmonic whole - the sensual
symphony that is Purple Haze. Inspired by Jimi Hendrix and on
behalf of those who have long loved patchouli. Purple Haze was
created as a testament to personal evolution.
A light tone of spiciness reclines seductively on a dark velvet
bed in this scent of deep rooted sensuality for woman and men.
A full spectrum perfume, containing notes of jasmine, frankincense,
and lotus, Shiva is grounding, to the heart, and transcendental
in effect. Shiva is named after the Hindu god of creation and
destruction. In ecstatic sexual union with the goddess Kali, Shiva
destroys the world, the universe and existence itself. Kali, through
her infinitely creative force, then gives birth to a reincarnated
Shiva and a new universe.
This remarkable perfume is an original blend of earth tones and
citrus notes. Playful hints of jasmine and orange merge with patchouli
to create this slightly fruity, soft and very seductive scent.
Kali is named after the Hindu goddess of destruction, creation,
and transformation. Through her divine alchemy She transmutes
ego and false attachments into the highest spiritual essence.
Kali, through her unbroken continuity, resurrects death - the
seer of distinction - into eternal life. Her cosmic dance is the
endless orgasm of ecstatic creation bringing everything to its
ultimate fulfillment and completion ... And it's fun too.
Quiessence is a hybrid of quietude and essence ... the quietude
of angels and seers being in essence, the essence of flowers,
the essential self. The intent of this perfume is to evoke the
essence of silence ... inexpressible stillness. Included in Quiessence
are notes of sweet grass, ambrette and bergamot. Quiessence has
a universal appeal.
This lively perfume is like a swim in a shimmering pool of lilac
petals. The intoxicating and sultry aroma of budding lilac is
heightened by the subtle presence of magnolia, creating a vibrant,
well-rounded perfume. This fragrance is named after the angel
Cassiel, the angel of solitude and tears who shows the unity of
all things in the Eternal World.
Gabriel the Archangel is the inspiration for this revolutionary
blend of pure essential oils, including Egyptian rose and East
Indian patchouli. In Gabriel, rose the most classical and exalted
of perfumes, is wedded with patchouli, the most rebellious and
funkiest of fragrances. It's a meeting of heaven and earth, with
a result that is out of this world - angelic, in fact. Gabriel
is best known as the angel of revelation; he announced to Mary
that she was going to be the mother of Jesus, and he dictated
the Koran to Muhammed. He may have something to say about the
new millennium, so listen carefully!
Tao is the evolution of the timeless combination of sandalwood
and patchouli. Perfume can be worn for vanity or it can be used
as an instrument of the Tao. The deep and intentional inhalation
of high- quality perfume is a powerful meditation. The interval
between the in-breath and the out-breath is a clue to the Tao.
Other names for the Tao are the Path, the Way, the Work ... the
Clouds Of Unknowing
Sweetgrass and sandalwood combine with other herbal and woody
notes to create a fragrance steeped in mystery, sensuality and
piercing insight. With this perfume, as with all things, the greater
the knowledge, the deeper the mystery. This fragrance is named
for the book "The Cloud of Unknowing," written in Middle
English by a 14th century mystic. Clouds of Unknowing represents
the primal impulse toward gnosis - knowledge of the ultimate nature
of reality. On the front is the sanskrit symbol for the mantra
Om, which is said to be the seed syllable of creation. Chanting
this mantra creates resonance with the divine.
