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.

The combination in Aura-Soma of the pale blue over the pale pink is called Orion and Angelica. This colour combination is particularly useful for travellers. What we say is “to help us arrive at our destination with all our bodies intact at the same time”. It helps us come to a sense of being in the right place at the right time. To return to synchronicity that on our journey, circumstances unfold in a harmonised way.
This colour combination is also one which shakes together as pale violet and so has to do with deep transformation of ourselves. We refer to lilac as transmutation, for the change at a chemical level of ourselves. Perhaps changing the chemistry changes the way we think about things or even how we feel. A lovely balance between mind and matter, symbolised by earth and sky or flowers and water.
Delicate, sensitive and highly feminine, ‘pink’ flowers – Rose, Lotus Flower and pink Jasmine – are grounded with a touch of Amber and Musk and represent the earthy notes. Aquatic notes, such as Japanese Seaweed Abs, Dewdrops and Wild Angelica represent the more herbaceous and watery elements on the top notes.
