The artist, Milly Thompson, has worked with herbalists and perfumer Eliza Douglas to produce a collection of three perfumes: SHATAVARI: INVISIBLE; PROPOSITION and VOLATILE as part of The Moon, The Sea & The Matriarch.
Each has Shatavari as its base note*, a herb known as Queen with a Thousand Kings which has been used for thousands of years in herbal medicine, refreshing parts of the female body that other medicines haven’t reached. The perfumes will be available to buy from Timespan as a set, or individually depending on which mood you’d like to evoke – solitude, seduction or power.
INVISIBLE: giving you a sense of privacy and centred solitude as you move through the world, soft, velvety and comforting. Hedioneproduces trust in yourself whilst ISO E Super provides a mirroring glow. Floral ozone is a feeling of expansiveness and the rare natural green note of Violet Leaf Absolute flirts with tranquility.
PROPOSITION: is feeling tough! A powerful aura surrounds you, promoting purpose and presence. PROPOSITION contains Buddha wood, an unusual woody note that grounds with elements of rose and smoke. Peru Balsam provides warmth and openness with notes of vanilla, cinnamon and clove, whilst an amber base keeps you in your groove.
VOLATILE: Jasmine beguiles, with an undertow of animal attraction. It celebrates lunar swings and primal bodies. Sandalwood is present for sensuality and softness whilst Beeswax Absolutedoes what it says on the tin; it’s enticing, floral and honey sweet.
* none of the perfumes contain a medical dose of shatavari.
