Aura-Soma have strived to go back to the art of embracing the subtleties and complexities of using purely natural and organic materials. Seasonal variations in natural crops, minute yields and arduous extraction processes make the development so much more challenging but also more creative and fulfilling. The resultant fragrance blends are soft, well rounded and wonderfully pure. Our range of perfumes is created using only natural and organic essential oils extracted from plants and flowers. The alcohol, which is used as the fragrance carrier, is certified Organic by Soil Association and fermented from pure organic grain. By using organic grade materials we can be sure that our fine ingredients are not exposed to pollution or pesticides. Our perfumes are guaranteed free from petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances and preservatives.”

Musk originally derives from the Musk Deer and is now banned due to the protected animal. The Fragrance Industry has substituted this smell with various components, natural and synthetic, which have a similar olfactory message and are considered "musky" in other words "warm & animalic". The Musk's used in the industry are vast and amongst many hundreds, some others are called: Muscenone, Musketone, Habanolide, Thibettolide and Galaxolide some are more sensuous and smell "nude" others are more animalic and perhaps more like "spice". Some perfumers add the description "Musk" into their pyramids to describe the last lingering scent of the fragrance, which may not be one of the above ingredients, but a combination of Vanilla, Tonka, Tolu, Saffron, Pepper and Cumin Seed, which altogether can smell warm and animalic or "Musky". In some of our fragrances the last lingering smell is associated with that of "Musk". But there is no true Musk in the fragrances, as this in the UK and indeed now world wide is illegal.

Top, Middle and Base Notes: Red Berries, Sambac Jasmine, Honey, Tonka, Vanilla, Amber, Opoponax, SandalwoodComments from Mike Booth, Aura-Soma and Anastasia, Creative Perfumers
In Aura-Soma® this colour combination relates specifically to ancient Egypt and the ancient wisdom. A sense of deep joy not necessarily over anything profound or meaningful but rather in simplicity. Where we have been worried or anxious then this combination has created some relief, returning joy to the life, when joy was missing. A combination that helps us stand up for ourselves, when we feel we haven't been listened to or heard.
This fragrance should evoke memories of joy and indulgence as well as warmth and a sense of "healing" and "nurture". This ‘Egyptian Bottle’ carries Egyptian Jasmine, Somalia Incense and rich golden Amber notes of Oppoponax, Tonka, Vanilla and a beautiful quality Honey Absolute. The top notes of Cassis and Red Berries, gives this scent a contemporary quirkiness and ‘sense of humour’ often associated with the ‘Puppeteer’.
