A Special Valentine's Scented Treat available @Botany's Desire
Feb. 5th!!! Limited Supply.

Amanda is a perfume addict, and has been since kindergarten when her friends made fun of her for exclaiming, “I can smell in my mouth!!” As a vegan, organic, local, and raw food advocate, she turned her environmental focus to the cosmetics she uses.
Perfume became an obsession for her while working for Manhattan based, multi-billion dollar beauty corporations. She wanted to offer a natural, healthier alternative to synthetic perfumes, which are full of acetone, petroleum, and phthalates (used to make plastics). Hundreds of studies have linked these chemicals to asthma, migraines, birth defects and cancer (*See Greenpeace link).

While studying with Master Perfumers and Distillers, she was reminded perfume was originally produced from flowers, fruit, herbs and spices. As chemicals are a cheaper alternative today, most perfumes are now formulated entirely with chemicals. Amanda only wanted to use the finest, rarest, safest, and purest ingredients from plants…she decided to launch A Perfume Organic!

A Perfume Organic offers exquisitely crafted perfumes blended from the finest USDA certified organic botanicals, hand-poured locally in Manhattan in small batches to maintain purity. The signature perfume ‘GREEN’ bears notes of fruity rose (New York’s state flower), black truffle, two chamomiles, and sweet ylang ylang with a spicy wood finish. The petite bottle and flower seed-embedded box can be planted and recycled as an effort to reduce wasteful packaging.

A Perfume Organic is passionately committed to offering the finest certified organic perfumes possible. Amanda has gained acclaim for creating 100% organic blends and sharing her knowledge with her peers through meetings with her local group NYC Natural Perfumers.
