* Limited Edition ~ Tauriel Botanical Perfume Oil *
A uniquely beautiful perfume that has a delicate powdery, soft violet and creamy vanilla & apricot character that is reminiscent of the soft and sweet odor of a newborn baby's skin at drydown. At the same time, it has a slightly earthy, rooty aspect to it.
Tauriel (pronounced tow-riel, meaning 'lady of the forest') is bottled in an elegant 15ml/.5oz miron violet glass bottle with steel roller ball from Switzerland to protect the precious oils from harmful UV light (pictured in second photo).
Aroma ~ soft violets, powdery, creamy, slightly fruity, sweet, earthy, rooty
A delicate perfume great for layering with other perfumes, or to where on its own. The fruity and sweet aroma of apricots and vanilla blended with soft powdery violets, earth and precious wood is simply intoxicating.
Gentle Unisex Fragrance
Orris is one of the most expensive materials on earth. It is the root of the sweet iris flower (iris pallida) and is almost exclusively cultivated for perfumery. The rhizome (root) is harvested and left to dry.
As it dries, a natural isolate forms inside called irone and the longer it dries the more irone is produced. Like fine wine, it has a vintage aspect and must be left to mature for at least three years. The entire process takes several years and one ton of the root only makes about two kilos of the essential oil needed to make fragrance - which is why it costs about three and a half times the price of gold.
The Orris Root used in this particular perfume is a rare oil made by steam distillation of Orris roots from Irises that have been aged for three years, containing 15% irones - the highest quality! Certified Kosher, extremely tenacious, and an excellent fixative.
An all natural perfume oil with high quality organic ingredients, including essential oils, flower essences, extracts, and hydrating botanical oils.
Ingredients - organic golden jojoba oil with my own blend of organic plant infusions, organic sea buckthorn CO2 extract, French orris root butter essential oil, Madagascan vanilla CO2 extract, Chinese osmanthus absolute, French carrot seed essential oil
Not your typical perfume. All of my perfumes are unique blends of pure botanical essences and accommodating notes that evoke memories and emotions - your favorite flower, spice, chocolate, citrus fruit, leather, freshly mown hay, lavender fields, forest walks, your Grandfather's pipe! Most are unisex scents, and can often be layered with one another for an extra dimension of fragrance. All of my perfumes leave a soft scent on the skin that stay close to the wearer and don't overpower the room. Very personal scents! Great for those who are sensitive to synthetic fragrances, or suffer from allergies or asthma.
You may also use this as a body oil, and sparingly as a hair serum.
Due to the botanical nature of this perfume, this fragrance may need to be re-applied throughout the day to be enjoyed, depending on the wearer's body chemistry.
Warning: While all skin types and individuals react differently to skincare oils, please do not use if you are sensitive or allergic to certain essential oils or tree nut oils. Even though all of the ingredients I use are organic or minimally processed, it's still a good idea to do a patch test first. Pregnant or nursing women should always consult their physician before using any products containing essential oils.

Sorry, no returns or refunds for any beauty products. If you are unhappy with your purchase, I'd be happy to provide an exchange for you (buyer pays for insured shipping both ways). Samples are available for purchase before committing to a larger size for all of my botanical perfumes, and for most of my skincare products, except for soap.
For all other items, if you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me within 3 days of receiving your item. I will issue a refund or store credit (seller's discretion) for the item price only once I receive the item in the same condition it was sent to you. Buyer is responsible for initial shipping charges and return insured shipping with tracking information. Return items must be sent back, or postmarked, within 1 week of date of receipt.
*Reworked boots - please contact me within 3 days of receiving your boots regarding fit issues, otherwise an exchange, refund, or store credit will not be issued. You may exchange them for another pair, or return them for a refund or store credit (buyer is responsible for return shipping and shipping charges for the exchange). Original shipping charges will not be refunded. Please measure your foot before purchasing any of my reworked boots. Please make sure to contact me regarding any questions you may have as far as fit or sizing. If possible, I'll measure the sole length and ball of foot width of the boots you're interested in for a better idea of fit. I mostly use vintage boots with character that are well broken in and the sizing could be off. I try to list the sizes as accurately as possible, but there is a risk with buying online without being able to try them on first. If slightly too big, boot socks or insoles can be added for a better fit. I do offer exchanges, refunds, or store credit if they don't fit, but buyer is refunded the item price only, not original shipping charges. Also, buyer is responsible for return insured shipping. Once I receive the item back from you in original, unworn and undamaged condition, your refund or store credit will be issued (seller's discretion). Return items must be sent back, or postmarked, within 1 week of date of receipt.
If an item arrives damaged, please contact me within 3 days of receiving your item. In this case, an insurance claim will be filed. Please open and inspect your item(s) immediately. I track and insure all of my shipments. In this case, refunds could take up to 30 days or more. If your item is damaged within 2 weeks of use, please contact me within 2 weeks of receiving your item. I will try to work with you. I will either try to fix the item for free, or offer store credit (buyer pays for insured shipping expenses both ways). Thank you for understanding.
If your item is lost in the post for more than 30 days or arrives damaged, please contact me and I'll file an insurance claim through Etsy. Once the claim is approved, I'll issue you a refund for the price of the item only. I do not issue refunds for any postage paid. I'm sorry for this but I cannot be held responsible for what happens to items once they are shipped.
Insurance Claim Policy - If your item(s) arrives damaged, please hold onto the damaged merchandise in the event you are requested during claims processing.

I need to submit this, along with a form and a receipt of the merchandise. In the case of lost mail, we are required to wait 30 days before filing a claim.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
