The olfactory sense is the strongest sense of them all, with the ability to evoke memories, sensations and emotions. Perfume is more than a scent, it is art; with the power to convey a subject or idea with roots that tie into your very history, your culture, your beliefs and your needs. It can alter the way you feel about yourself and the way people perceive you. It is the ability to stand out, to be different, to compliment your chemistry and to change the way you think and feel about yourself and your environment. It is the chemicals of the earth that bind us together as one and these chemicals will be here long after we are gone.

Onaram eau de parfums are hand produced in micro-batches using old world techniques. We only use the finest quality ingredients including fresh tinctures, raw tree pitch, wildcrafted botanicals, essential oils, absolutes, resins, natural accords, natural isolates, organic aromatic compounds and nature identical aroma molecules. Natural perfumes wear more delicate and ethereal while they subtly compliment each person’s personality, as they react differently between body chemistries. Our perfumes are in a base of the highest quality organic grape and cane alcohol and are featured in glass bottles with fine mist sprayers. Color and aroma may vary between batches. All perfumes are unfiltered and sediment may be present.
