Below is a published writing that inspired my making of “Summer Midnights”

 

 

Summer Midnights-

The Cicada buzz mounts to a vibratory fury and descends swift as I watch the mist settle upon the cooling late summer fields.

Bull thistle has gone to seed among the barn, white flurries dance soft upon the heated electric ether, sent forth before the storm.

I wander a lush and timeless countryside, where feathery mimosa tree blossom give generous,  a sensual fragrance… a gift for anyone fortunate to savor the sweet coconut and pink sugar, cooked by a summer sun.

A peregrine falcon soars in a space on high, overseer of its rolling hillside

Amish women hang their wet washing for the gentle wind to press into a shape that will be sun faded and warm cotton fragrant by evening.

A slow and low thunder rumbles the wood clapboards and settles with the dust.

Swift blackbirds among the cornfields take flight trailing a dusty swirled path to the blue and gray summer heaven above. They will find secret haven past the old man’s tobacco barn into the tree line where dusk awaits.

Horses languish in the field with the last heated moments of this summer day.

I will lay upon a cool linen bed as the day that brought blessings will unfold into memories…

Secretly listening for the soft whistle of the small town train, which always comes in summer’s midnight.

It is a lullaby song of a summer’s dream…

At Angel Blue Perfume LLC, we love to create the fine, distinctive and artisan crafted perfume and cologne scents that have been  inspired, not only from my knowledge and experience collecting and studying plants and trees, but from the vast knowledge of the Shakers in America and the Victorian history of scents. My created fine perfume is made without synthetics or petrochemicals. The scents can be used lavishly for they are soft, sensual and safe.

There is so much to tell about the Victorian times and the scents that came to be, so I will just share some intriguing information now and follow up with a more extensive posting in the future.

Ladies during the Victorian period indulged in many fine, natural and herbal scented mixtures. They were commonly used to mist the hair, skin, gloves, handkerchiefs,  clothing, pin cushions and the like. The naturally derived plants and herbal concoctions that were favored had a mixture of two or more of the following and sometimes just one herbal plant might be favored. The popular plant choices were Lavender, Lemon, Bergamot, Rose, Orange Blossom, Violet, Mace, Clove, Frankincense, Jonquils, Jessamine and many more.

One must keep in mind that the early Victorian days, unlike the late Victorian, did not have use of animal byproducts like musk, civet  and such that would make the perfume last longer and smell stronger.

Eau de Cologne and floral waters were the talk of the day but unlike finer perfume these were created with distilled water. These lighter scents were more affordable for the working class Ladies and Gentlemen.

At Angel Blue Perfume LLC I make my fine perfume in our Laboratory at the weight and mixture of Perfume quality but I find that adding a small percentage of pure distilled water I lower the natural alcohol scent and the emulsion allows for more of the pure oils and essences to come through in a lovely note combination.

During the middle years of the Victorian period, Lemon oil and Bergamot were the most popular and sought after scents. These would normally be combined but some would use each one separately.

During the late Victorian period there were many chemist, distillers and perfume houses in London and Paris with a wide range of choices of inexpensive, synthetic fragrances available to the common working man and women.

This was wonderful for many, now the general population could afford to smell “sweet” and refined as the wealthier classes.

The wealthy ladies did not like this so much and wanted to be distinguished from the lower classes. This would put a demand on natural and unsynthesized  perfumes, again.  In the 1890’s more complex, fine and lovely scents with 8-14 different plant essences and extracts would be sold in bottles and glass vials that were decorative and ornate.

One of the oldest perfume houses in the world today is Floris, in Jermyn Street, London. It was founded in the 18th century and is still here today.
