ime Natural Perfumes by Tonia Walker 2013

Hi there APJers,

Recently Catherine de Peloux Menage (from Sydney Perfume Lovers) and I were lucky enough to lunch with a very interesting lady. A natural perfume curator that worked with a fragrance company and perfumer here in Australia. Unusually for a Natural Perfumer she has worked within the NICNAS (National Industrial Chemicals Notification & Assessment Scheme of Australia) and IFRA (International Fragrance Association) guidelines. Her bottles are produced in Italy and the lids in China. The look is very cool, calm and collected and will look beautiful on dressers, vanities and popping out of your purse for a respritz. Who is this lady? Tonia Walker from ime Natural Perfumes.

Normally I wouldn’t steal wholesale from a site but I think Tonia has covered a lot of the stuff that you are interested in knowing and it’s so easily understandable that I need not change it so:

ime: the phonetic Greek word for eimai meaning I AM.

Explore and experience life a little different each day. ime will naturally inspire you to experience the unique individual you desire to be day to day. And who says you can’t be driven, naughty, cool, flirty, expressive, beautiful, intuitive, enlightened and elegant whenever you want to be!

The nine Muses of Greek Mythology have been known throughout time to inspire and guide those who seek their radiance. ime is a series of perfumes where each scent is uniquely blended with 100% botanical ingredients that are designed to encompass the essence of each muse.

A whole lot of inspiration!

Erato [naughty]

Mood Inspired: Naughty, Irresistable
The muse of Love is devlish and sexy. Her romanitc prose will ignite you, inspiring you to love, be adored and find the moves to express the irresistably naughty goddess within.
Scent: Woody, Oriental, Floral
A sophisticated, warm, exotic, and silky scent that will softly intrigue and seduce the romantic side. Devilishly feminine.
Inspired Notes: Mandarin, Cardomom, Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Cedarwood, Tolu Balsam, Labdanum Balsam, Sandalwood.

There are 9 fragrances in the ime set, inspired by the Muses. Each has a very distinct reference to the muse in question and that muses area of control. Obviously the one that I fell in love with was naughty.

Erato (Naughty) is fun and flirty and has a lovely sensual, woodsy back beat that growls under the fizzy, fun citrus, herbs and flowers. I grabbed a bottle and have been enjoying it a lot. The opening is so dynamic, it pops out at you full of life and fresh vitality. If you have tried naturals before and been scared of their deep, dark and dank stories then the ime experience will disabuse you of that preconception. Erato is filled with light and the goodness of natural essential oils. I smell, and feel, bright and cheerful. It’s had not to smile while wearing this excellent fragrance.

Currently ime Natural Perfumes is only allowed to ship within Australia but they soon hope to resolve this problem.

  6. Ourania for me – jasmine absolute. Follow by email. Love natural perfumes! Ironically, synthetic ingredients in many new perfumes, especially florals, cause allergic reactions in me whereas natural perfumes and vintage perfumes NEVER do.
