Love Lula have just introduced a brand new range of natural perfumes to their store by Walden Natural Perfumes. There are five natural scents in the range, all of which are made with the finest natural absolutes, resins and essential oils.
Henry David Thoreau
The perfumes are named after Henry David Thoreau’s seminal work Walden. The book is part meditation, part handbook for simple living in natural surroundings. It has inspired countless readers in the roughly 200 years since it was written. Walden Natural Perfumes are “proud to walk in his footsteps” with their fragrances. The range offers a natural alternative to mass-produced, celebrity-endorsed fragrances that are often made with chemicals. Walden is proud to return to the glory days of real perfumery when fragrances were made by hand in small batches from natural ingredients of the finest quality.
There are five perfumes ranging from earthy, woody aromas to floral and citrus scents. The perfumes are housed in sleek, glass jar with a wooden lid. They are very elegant and wouldn’t look out of place in a high-end perfume boutique.
A Little Star-Dust – a sumptuous bouquet of Ylang Ylang, Iris and Jasmine enriched with hints of creamy Amyris and exotic Tonka Bean. This perfume was a Finalist for ‘Best Natural Beauty Product’ at the Natural & Organic Awards Europe 2017. I’m personally not a fan of ylang ylang or jasmine so this isn’t a favourite of mine however if you love those scents, this will be right up your street!
Two Eternities – a garland of Forest Flowers including Wild Roses, Jasmine and Iris floating above a fresh Citrus base of Bergamot and Sweet Orange Oil. This is a beautiful scent and one of my absolute favourites from the Walden Natural Perfumes range. This is the scent I’ve been reaching for the most!
Castles in the Air – a fresh, intoxicating blend of Citrus with a hint of tropical flowers and lavender. This is another one of my favourites from the range. It’s citrusy and floral in the same blend and is a lovely, fresh scent.
A Different Drummer – opens with a spicy blast of Pepper followed by Cedarwood and Amber and finishes with creamy hints of Amyris Sandalwood. This is my fiancé Paul’s favourite and is definitely a unisex scent as I would wear it too. I tend to like quite sweet scents but I do also like spicier scents too like this one.
The Solid Earth – opens citrusy fresh with Petitgrain followed by a heart of Vetiver and Light Patchouli Oil to finish off with creamy Amyris. This has an earthy, slightly spicy scent but it’s also quite citrusy. It’s one of the stronger scents from the range.
Walden Natural Perfumes range in price from £40.00 to £60.00 for 50ml and come in glass jars. They are boxed in sleek black & white packaging.
