Mandy will make them as a custom order, which for the solid perfumes costs $345 (or $395 for Boronia) for 1/4 oz., for the liquid perfumes costs $260 for 1/4 oz., and for the liquid Eau de Parfum (EDP) spray costs $260 for 1 oz.

Alchemy Solid Perfume
  • Scent Family: Lush Floral

A rose and jasmine heart swathed in amber and vanilla, with bitter orange and black pepper top notes.

Boronia Solid Perfume
  • Scent Family: Soliflore

Tasmanian boronia, one of the most costly essences in the world, is as close to heaven as we are likely to get. Boronia's aroma is reminiscent of raspberry, apricot, violet, and yellow freesia. Antique sandalwood and agarwood create an exquisite, woody backdrop. This solid perfume smells like sunlight on the trees in the forest.

Curious Liquid Perfume
  • Scent Family: Smoky Musk

Curious is a smoky musk perfume, with notes of dried fruit and precious woods. An airy smokiness laces through the perfume from the opening to the ending, -- burnt fruitwood and caramel. Mesmerizing orange leaf absolute, like a green orange, is refreshingly tart, animalic, and indolic.

Parfum de Maroc Liquid Perfume
  • Scent Family: Spicy Floral

Inspired by an ancient Moroccan spice recipe Ras el Hanout. Based on Bulgarian rose, a smoothing element that takes some of the edge off the spices, like galangal, nutmeg absolute, and black pepper; it massages them into a rounded softness, finished off with the freshness of bitter orange. Built on a base of myrrh and cardamom, I layered the spices vertically throughout the perfume.

Pink Lotus Liquid Perfume
  • Scent Family: Chypre

Pink Lotus is a very full-bodied and voluptuos floral, which includes 100-year-old Mysore sandalwood, pink lotus abbsolute, tuberose and ylang ylang, set on a traditional chypre base of oakmoss.

Roses Solid Perfume
  • Scent Family: Soliflore

Like a bouquet of roses freshly picked from the garden, Roses perfume reveals the voluptuousness of a warm rose in the sun. This luxurious modern version embodies all the different tonalities of rose -- honey, myrrh, musk, spice. Beautiful, either on its own or layered over any other Aftelier perfume.

Shiso Liquid Perfume
  • Scent Family: Green.

Shiso is based on an old Geisha formula, combining notes of shiso leaf and agarwood with precious turn-of-the-century spice oils clove and cassia. A modern twist on a classic Eastern blend of green and spice. Layers beautifully over Fig perfume.

Tango Liquid Perfume
  • Scent Family: Smoky

Inspired by the "dance of love", sexy and smoky, with roasted seashells and champaca; a heady floral with spice and honey notes. One of my most complicated perfumes, combining many botanicals to convey the naughty eroticism of a night of drinking, dancing, smoking.

Wildflowers Solid Perfume
  • Scent Family: Fougere

Evokes the rolling hills of California -- The honeyed softness of sun-warmed sweet hay, dotted with wildflowers and a cool breeze of Mexican lime. Perfect for adding a sweet powdery meadow-like layer.
