Fragrance Of The Month: Maison Jacynthe Ayurvedic Perfume Oil

This month? We try out Maison Jacynthe Ayurvedic Perfume Oil

Before you start rolling on Maison Jacynthe Ayurvedic Perfume Oil, here’s a quick history lesson explaining why this fragrance is so unique…and not just because it’s home-grown Canadian and 100 per cent pure, vegan and cruelty-free.

To begin, Ayurvedic Perfume Oil is steeped in centuries-old tradition, like how Eastern Indian medicine has used essential oils to heal the body, mind and soul for too many years to count and how during biblical times, courtesy of the Romans, these oil blends were favoured to scent the hair, body, clothes and home. Now, thanks to this version’s handy-dandy pocket sized roller, feeling and smelling great is just a roll on and a rub of the wrists away.

A sensual spicy blend, the perfume incorporates three tried and true essential oils synonymous with Ayurvedic scents: smoky frankincense, creamy sandalwood and warm myrrh. Layers of clove and patchouli add a touch of spice, while earthy cedarwood and oakmoss give it a grounded, masculine edge. Heady rose with tart orange and sweet bergamot lift the scent up for a light and provocative vibe. The overall effect of everything combined is inviting and intimate. And if history has anything to say about it, it will also relax and uplift your senses, while bringing a sense of calm and peace.

Maison Jacynthe Ayurvedic Perfume Oil, $32 for 10 ml, available online at www.maisonjacynthe.ca.
