Phoenix Botanicals perfumes are exquisite, wearable scented stories made of flowers, resins and roots. Inspired by cross-sensory experience, connection with landscape and fauna, deep ecology, and just plain flower crushes. Blended with pure botanical essences in a base of organic jojoba or alcohol. Similar to short films, botanical blends can be a medium for time-based storytelling, embodied through the passing by of the various plant essences transforming on the skin. Our perfumes were twice nominated for the Art and Olfaction Awards.
Our organic and wildcrafted body care is formulated for your experience of the healing energy of plants, their natural scent, and beneficial properties.
