The term “natural” has been commonly used to mean “organic” and “genuine” and even “real.” However, true natural things are those that are in their original formation, untouched, and living unbiased and uncompromised.
A compelling alternative to traditional perfumes is a brand named Bravanariz. They offer three all natural “Landscape Scents” from the region of Emporda in Spain.
The scents are derived from gathering and harvesting actual plants, then distilling them, and having the formulation rest for 20 days. Finally, the captured oils, called Olfactory Captures, are bottled.
The three scents are:
A summer capture that is characterized as “dry and cool, soft and rugged.” It incorporates the salty, sea-line coast with intense plants during a warm summer.
The feeling of spring invokes fresh beginnings and revitalization of positivity. Named after a regional river, MUGA is the Landscape Scent that harvests rosemary, cypress, chamomile, and lavender.
BOSC is a winter scent that is a balance of silent calm and invigorating enchantment. Think woods and mountains, and the shelter they will provide. Juniper, oakmoss, and pine.
Each of the three Landscape Scents is Bravanariz’s interpretation of mountains, plains, and seacoasts—the 3 most characteristic landscapes of the Emporda region, according to the brand.
Each of the bottles is available in one size, 50mL (1.7 oz) that look similar to nail polish or an essential oil bottle. Simplistically designed, but functionally useable.
Packaging and colors
The boxes with each coordinating scent feature earthy depictions…a bright blue ocean in summer, spring’s lush greenery, and the changing forest of winter.
Unlike most fragrances, they are not rated as Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, or Eau de Cologne because they are not. Remember, these are not perfumes, but rather they are 100% natural oil essences.
Where to find them?
Additionally, they offer an Explorer Kit to do your own harvesting of your own scents near home without making the trip to Spain.
Because the Landscape Scents do not contain “synthetic fixers,” they do not predetermine masculinity or femininity.
They change with body chemistry and coexist with one’s personal natural oils. In essence, they become one’s personal landscape.
Truly an innovative approach to incorporating nature’s natural landscape with our own earthly existence, we can bond with the environment in a new way. Is this something you have tried or are willing to sample? Let The Perfume Times know. We would love to hear your feedback!
