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.

Heaven on Earth, may be related to a forgotten promise to always be working toward the solution. Really an opportunity to bring us the reminder that it’s ok to have our head in heaven providing we have our feet on the ground. A wonderful combination from a colour perspective to find peace in a conscious way and yet have the energy to do what needs to be done.
Per Fumum meaning ‘Through Fire’ we reach to the Gods. The bottle encapsulates all the ancient materials used to form the word ‘perfume’ or ‘per fumum’ – Incense, Oudh, Myrrh – are just a few to mention. When burnt, the scented smoke would rise to the skies to please the Gods who in return would reward us with spirituality and peace of mind. Using such expensive materials in a commercial world of fragrance felt like bringing the true quality of ‘per fumum’ back to life, bringing Heaven to Earth and allowing Earth to rise to Heaven.
