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.

Comments from Mike Booth, Aura-Soma and Anastasia, Creative Perfumers
The pale violet over the pale violet is called St. Germain. It is a very beautiful combination, we think of the equilibrium bottle being of help to those who find it difficult to be seen even if they have amazing qualities or gifts, to help them to come out and be themselves.
Those who act as catalysts, to bring about change, who are an inspiration to others just by being there. This perfume may help those who don't want to be seen to be ‘invisible’ or those who feel invisible to be able to be seen.
Violet stands for loyalty, truthfulness and the sensitive thinker. The perfumers have wrapped this predominantly deep purple flower in notes of Musk, warm Sandalwood, Amber and added the high strung, almost metallic Nutmeg as a top note as a refreshing contrast.
