The ancient apricot has been cultivated since before the first writing. In fact, the fruit, which is thought to be native to Armenia, was grown in India as far back as 3,000 B.C. In Latin, apricot means “precious,” and is also considered one of mythology’s “golden apples.” Although the apricot largely disappeared from Europe after the decline of Rome, it was reintroduced to England by Henry VIII’s gardener. In England, apricots in dreams were thought to be lucky, while the apricot is treated as an aphrodisiac in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
Premium Fragrance Notes
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.
