Amethyst Mist is a beautifully rich perfume encouraging relaxation and calm, where rich wood notes of Atlas cedarwood meet West Indian sandalwood, Indonesian patchouli and vetiver from China. These beautiful scents are embellished by white floral accents of ylang-ylang and heliotrope. Piquant accents of ginger, mandarin oil from Italy, cardamom and clove help to lift all the scents together and combine to form what is one of our best sellers, Amethyst Mist.
Founder Jim Payne chose a compassionate name for this classy fragrance. Mandarin and vetivert embody earthiness and grounding. Amethyst stones are natural stress relievers with healing properties that banish negative energy and encourage inner strength, wealth, and clarity of mind. Sandalwood and cedarwood form the base notes while vetivert acts as the strong fixative, helping the blended citrus and floral fragrances slowly release onto the skin creating a lasting fragrance. Vetivert is sometimes known as the oil of tranquillity making it the perfect fragrance for restful breaks and a calm state of being.

Anahita is a timeless classic fragrance for perfume lovers looking for a new gently spiced, floral perfume. Anahita gives a lasting individual scent you’ll love to wear.
