Aroma palette is herbal, earthy, and woodsy. Highlights include freshly tilled churchyard soil, antique cedar rosaries, orange and fig compote, and the scent of geraniums wafting through a churchyard garden.

This complex and haunting blend is inspired by Bernadette Soubirous, a saint best known for the Marian apparition known as Our Lady Of Lourdes. Since her death, her body has remained internally incorrupt, but her face and hands are covered in light wax masks as she lays in a crystal reliquary.

Frankincense, palmarosa, and ambrox are the foundation of this darkly beautiful blend. Geranium petals, freshly tilled churchyard soil, antique rosaries, cedar wood, and church incense swirl like phantoms on the dry down revealing elusive wisps of sweet orange and fig which add a strangely beautiful and uplifting fruit element.

What Are Perfume Oils?

Please note that these are not fragrance oils; they are perfume oils (artisan perfumes presented in oil format). They are meant to be worn on the skin and are not suitable for wax warmers, oil burners, or aroma diffusers. The only difference between our perfume oils and Eau de Parfums is the oil format. Many people prefer perfume oils because they wear close to the skin and unfold a bit more non-linearly than Eau de Parfums. For a more in-depth look at perfume oils, please peruse our knowledge base articles.

About Perfume Oils

Perfume oils do not unfold their complexity when experienced directly from the bottle. If you attempt to gauge the aroma of a perfume oil by smelling it from the bottle, your experience will not be accurate whatsoever. Always test perfumes on your body for the full experience.

Apply first to your pulse points (the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, and the inner elbows) where it will warm with your body heat to unfold the fragrance.

Perfume oil, unlike alcohol-based perfumes, wears close to the skin. It warms on your body, adapts to your body chemistry, and creates a halo of scent on the body. As it fades, perfume oil can be applied throughout the day as a personal aromatic ritual.

Not recommended for those who are pregnant or nursing, children, or pets. Always patch test for potential allergies before applying liberally.

Gorgeous, earthy floral citrus

This scent is so pretty. It’s fresh and inviting while also having a grounding, earthy depth to it. It’s herbaceous without being overtly green. Great for all seasons and the people around me love it too! The artistry of this perfumer is hard to beat.

Autumn Hardy

I've bought many perfumes from small businesses over the years and this is honestly the best one out of them all. It smells akin to an old church located in a pine forest, herbal and dark, its wonderful.

Signature scent

You have to smell this. I bought in a sample set and it is now a signature. You will become Bernadette and all your friends will wonder how you smell so good. There is a longing and nostalgia that I cannot put a finger on. It’s a moody smell that still brightens the room. I want to be possessed by smells, and this will possess you and all those close to you too. But, in a good way, you know?

beautiful dark floral

This scent is a beautifully unique floral. It reminds me of waking up early on a spring day, and walking a farmer's market. it definitely gives me the vibe of a girl living in a small town in New England. I love it.

Love it

This smells exactly like described. This perfumer is amazing at every one she makes. This smells like walking by a church during a service but it also smells like an old fashioned garden.
