Natural perfumes are hard to come by these days, since almost every perfume on the market is made with synthetically derived fragrance. There are two wonderful gems in the midst stateside which give hope to the ancient art of perfumery. Mandy Aftel who resides in Berkeley California creates wonderous, exotic blends which smell divine. Her blend of cepes and tuberose is an animalistic floral and so yummy! Plus her website is really cute! There is also the personal friend of mine Dawn Spencer Hurwitz, who is a true intellectual, artist and "nose". Her company DSH Perfumes and Parfums des Beaux Arts, has numerous enchanting offerings. Check them out.
