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.

This combination of the magenta over the turquoise is named “go with the flow” in the Aura-Soma system. The turquoise encourages communication from our hearts through the feeling side of our being. Whilst within the depth we attempt to put the love and care into the little things.
When those two colours or energies interact then we also have the possibility to really enter into the flow in life. If there is a desire or hope for a solution in the relationships in our lives, it begins with putting the care and attention into the small things so that it then may be available in the bigger things. This also encompasses the relationships within ourselves, like the intuition and analytical aspect within us.
Perfumers call this composition the ‘Tropical Island’ encapsulating a ‘go with the flow’ relaxed and positive energy. The Perfumers have chosen indigenous flowers, such as Bungi Chine (a form of Gardenia) and Gallant de nuit (a form of Jasmine), underlining the scent with a warm base note of Cinnamon, Vanilla, Tonka and Tolu.
