The symbol of wisdom, of temptation, and of sin, the apple is often identified as the mythical “forbidden fruit.” Many believe it was a fateful bite of apple that got Adam and Eve evicted from the Garden of Eden. Later, another fateful apple indirectly incited the Trojan War, when Paris awarded Aphrodite a golden apple in exchange for the most beautiful woman in the world—Helen of Troy, wife of Menelaus. This beguiling fruit has a long and entangled history, as evidenced in the similarity between the two words in Latin: mālum ”an apple”, and mălum ”an evil.”
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.
