This sweet almond-flavored Italian liqueur was created by a Saronno widow in 1525 as a gift for Renaissance artist Bernardino Luini, one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s students. Luini had been commissioned to paint a fresco of the Madonna of the Miracles, and for his model, he chose a young, widowed innkeeper. The woman fell in love with the artist, and concocted this amber potion of steeped apricot kernels, which she presented him as a gift.
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.
