Phoenix Botanicals perfumes are exquisite, wearable scent 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 alcohol or jojoba. 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 scents, and beneficial properties.

Irina Adam is a natural perfumer, wildcrafter and educator, as well as photography and mixed media artist. An earth devotee who's been exploring and deeply relating to landscapes, plants, healing and creativity since her teens.
Phoenix Botanicals started in 2007, while working in ethnobotany research at the NY Botanical Garden, and apprenticing with local herbalists Robin Rose Bennett and Lata Kennedy. It's named after that feeling of being reborn after spending time in nature- like a phoenix! and an eponymous rescue bird.
Irina has a BFA in photography and a minor and post graduate studies in botany. Based in Brooklyn, she frequently ventures into the wilds of Hudson Valley and Long Island. She's a long time practitioner of wild swimming and chi gong, and recently exploring somatics and stone medicine. More about Irina at this Cafleurebon perfumer profile.

Proud to be sustainable, fair trade, cruelty free, and vegan (vegan exceptions: local, small farm beeswax in some items/ we also use beach harvested ambergris in a few perfumes).
Thank you for helping us make a difference ~ we're members of Wild Bird Fund NYC and donate to environmental, social justice, animal and specifically avian welfare projects.
