The alcohol, which is used as the fragrance carrier, is certified Organic by Soil Association
- We 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.

Comments from Mike Booth, Aura-Soma and Anastasia, Creative Perfumers
From the Aura-Soma colour point-of-view Bottle 44 is called the Guardian Angel. This colour combination is very close to my heart as it was the first combination I was to bring into being. When it was created, the founder of Aura-soma called it the Guardian Angel. It relates also to a personal meditation practice and visualisation - the pale blue sphere of protection and the lilac flames of transmutation. Bottle 44 symbolises the light body and its development. A meeting with something extraordinary earlier in the life.
Anastasia's comment about Iris gives us part of the miraculous connection between the perfumer’s art and the work with colour and light. In the Roman and Greek pantheons, Iris is the Goddess of the rainbow and therefore has much to do with our own rainbow body of light. Sometimes referred to as the Chakra system, the rainbow of our being. When thought of in this way it becomes clear the Guardian Angel is there to assist us in the development of the whole of our being.
Perfumers call this bottle the ‘Iris’ bottle. Iris is one of the world’s most ancient flowers, considered intelligent, spiritual and an important messenger. Its deep spiritual Purple colour is softened through the powdery notes that derive from the Orris Root. The scent appears ‘lilac’, encased in delicacy through its powdery notes, crisp dry cedar and precious woods. A scent often worn by those seeking pure, high, aesthetic values – often perfectionists.
