Pineward perfumes capture abandoned alpine farmsteads, boreal bracken and briars, frost-laden and fog-blanketed firs, loam-covered logs, prickles of pine, thickly thicketed thistles, rotting rooted carpets, morel mushroom mycelium, sap encrusted spruces, misty, murky, mossy, forests up in a stoppered bottle. My hope is that wearing Pineward perfume will transport you to remote untamed forests far, far, past the reaches of civilization and into primeval black woods of fantasy.
I love all things pertaining to pines and conifers, but I find most perfumes I've tried shy away from the raw forest aspects. I have sampled and bought no small amount of conifer perfumes, and you can read my reviews for others here. My goal in crafting these scents is to create the ultimate line of pine and fir perfumes, using the highest-quality natural ingredients possible to source. I don't wish to box myself in by making only coniferous perfumes, but they are a core tenet of Pineward. These perfumes are raw, unapologetically brutal affairs that attempt to emulate the gorgeous smells already found in nature.
The perfumes of Pineward are crafted largely using heavily concentrated absolutes and should be tested on small patches of skin before further application, or alternatively they may be worn on dark-colored garments. My reccomended method of application is to invert the stoppered bottle, right it again, and then remove the stopper and use it to apply parfum. The perfumes are alcohol-based, containing a mixed medium of natural materials and aromachemical components for support and stability, and thus far Steading is the only non-vegan blend as it contains beeswax absolute and beaver castor.
I don't wish to market Pineward by hype and fear of missing out, and none these perfumes are limited editions save for Christmas Wine, which for now will likely be a seasonal offering returning again next year. When they sell out, I will produce more of each based on demand, availability of materials, and personal judgement. I do not provide free products in exchange for reviews or exposure.
Returns are not accepted, and it is reccomended that you sample before ordering. Please reach out if there is an issue with your order.
Over time, or from batch to batch, you may notice color changes, deposits, or slight alteration to the composition. This is due to the high percentage of natural ingredients in the compositions and is normal. I filter the completed perfumes as little as necessary to leave the soul of the perfumes intact.
Pineward perfumes are not IFRA compliant.
International shipping is available, but a $20 surcharge will be added and processing times may take up to a week, and the only courier option is USPS. In the past year international shipping parcels have been consistently taking over a month (or even 2 months) to reach the destination, please keep this in mind when ordering. Upgraded international shipping using USPS priority mail instead of first class mail is available for $60, please contact me directly if you would like to use this option. International shipping is at your own risk, in many cases of lost packages I can send replacement parcels, but I do not have any control over shipping conditions.
I can make custom orders of larger bottles per request (2 and 4oz) based on availability, but these orders may take upwards of a month to process.
