Perfume Fixative Balm
Out of stock
This Solid natural perfume fixative balm is designed to increase the longevity and sillage of your perfumes, especially for oil-based formulas.
Natural perfumery, especially involving delicate florals or citrus scents, will not last as long on the skin as commercial perfumes. This re-application time is a good time to pause and reflect on the experience and makes the fleeting nature of naturals a bit more mysterious.
However, many people prefer a long-lasting fragrance that can be worn for the entire day, and for this, there are some options to increase the longevity of natural scents. Adding* perfume oil to clothing items will change the volatility of the oils and decrease their diffusion. Adding the scent to ribbons and placing them insider purses or clothing pockets is another option for extending the scent of certain fragrances. Layering perfumes also will increase the intensity and length of the fragrances.
Alternatively, using a fixative balm can extend the scent longevity. The fixative works by several processes. In this formula, the Carnauba wax works to decrease the volatility of oils by lowering their dispersion. Carnauba is a natural wax commonly used in product preparation and candy. Other waxes and oils, like Orris Root, are added to increase the ‘fixative’ properties of the perfume itself. In addition, the blend of soft waxes like Candelilla wax and Rice Bran create a soft barrier between the skin and the oils, further decreasing the scent volatility.
This fixative balm has a lightly sweet and woody fragrance on its own, which complements perfumes, especially floral or gourmand scents.
All ingredients, including Vitamin E, are naturally derived.
*Oils will absolutely stain certain clothing items. Use discretion.
