The Heart Note Collection consists of four perfumes with a romantic quality all hand blended with 50% single flower essence.

A1 Ylang Ylang - An Indonesian flower known for its calming and relaxing effects, it releases feelings of anger, tension and irritability, and is said to alleviate depression and bring happiness and gratitude. A known aphrodisiac in Indonesia, Ylang Ylang flowers are strewn across marriage beds to bring love. Blended with orange blossom, sandalwood and mint to bring out the best in the flower. Place it on the Sacral and Solar Plexus chakras.
A2 Honeysuckle - Historically, honeysuckle was burned as incense to bring prosperity into the home.

A3 Rose - In the language of flowers, rose is the traditional flower of love. The scent is known to bring balance and harmony as well as relieve stress and anxiety. It has been used for centuries as an aphrodisiac even by Cleopatra who seduced Marc Anthony by filling her chambers with roses so that he would be reminded of her every time he smelled a rose. The scent of roses can help eliminate the fear of intimacy, trust and possessiveness. Blended also with vetiver, patchouli and pink pepper to complement its scent and properties.

A4 Orange Blossom - Used by ancient Egyptians to heal the mind, body and spirit, orange blossoms are also thought to be calming and relaxing. Traditional European bridal bouquets wove orange blossoms into them for their calming effect.

Place on the sacral, heart and crown chakras.
