Why Do We Number our Melange Roll-0n Perfumes?
Each of our 15 perfume blends is inspired by the most sought-after notes in custom blending. They took years to perfect and are still prepared in small quanties to ensure they are fresh. They are numbered in the order they were created. Along the way, we stopped using alcohol. This dramatically changed the perfumes for the better. The beauty of each fragrance note emerges and remains largely unchanged over time. The perfumes have a longer shelf life. Our base of coconut oil fractions is odorless, colorless and natural. Hawaiian Kukui Nut Oil is a natural antioxidant and lends to the beautiful consistency of the perfumes. It costs more to make perfume this way but it is absolutely worth it.
Finally, people love our perfumes for the way they smell. By not listing the notes on the box we remove some preconceived notions people may have about certain fragrances. For instance, I adore and wear No. 8 - a blend of Amber, Vanilla and Plum, yet under most circumstances I do not care for vanilla in any product..... Exploring them is a purely sensory pursuit!
Do People Blend the Roll-On Perfumes?
Yes! Melange is the French word meaning to mix or blend. Common examples are: No. 1 & No. 4; No. 3 & No. 1; No 8 & No. 14; No. 11 & No. 9; No. 6 & No. 9.
