Steeped in compassion for humans, animals and the planet and blended with love. The scents of Prelude work in harmony to create a flattering night-time and special occasion fragrance. Founder, Jim Payne created the original Prelude in 1982. Firstly, for family and friends and then for a loyal following of vegan perfume lovers. Jim’s daughter April launched Prelude with the first 6 perfumes in the Dolma range and produced them commercially for many years. Perhaps its name was chosen as an introductory essence, to be followed by the next 5 original scents created. Prelude is the kind of vintage scent which remains a favourite with all generations.
