With its roots founded in compassion, the intensely aromatic Sarabande is a timeless fragrance, distinctively spiced with a touch of floral thanks to a blend of geranium, ginger, vetivert and ylang ylang. Inspiration for the name of this exotic fragrance comes from a slow and graceful dance composed by Handel – the Sarabande. Jim Payne, Dolma’s founder, added his musical inspiration into the names for his perfumes along with his talent for creating vegan fragrances women love. Sarabande is one of Jim Payne’s earliest cruelty-free perfumes, made for family and friends and later advertised and sold to fund experiments into the making of new cruelty-free and vegan perfumes. Gently made in Britain with respect for people, animals and our planet.
A perfume that has stood the test of time, Raga is a staple fragrance in the Dolma range. Strongly influenced by his love for music, Raga was the name given to the melodic framework for Indian classical music which inspired Jim Payne (Dolma's founder) to choose this name for the (then) latest sweet and spicey to the Dolma range. We've brought it up to date for modern tastes with copaiba to sweeten the ginger spice - while orange adds the citrus touch. The clever blend of sweetness, spice and tangy citrus makes Raga a notable daytime staple perfume or evening fragrance. One of the six original fragrances Dolma founder Jim Payne created, Raga is full of character with a classical touch. Hand-crafted in Britain, cruelty-free, vegan ingredients and gentle on the environment, what's not to love about Raga?

Made in time-honoured tradition, Cushi B is the essence of one of Dolma founder Jim Payne's first perfumes, its name musically inspired by the character in a folk song. Jim loved to experiment with essential oils (plant compounds) and a loyal following of 25 vegans regularly ordered his 6 early perfumes. He created Cushi B from lime and orange to achieve a citrus aroma with ylang ylang adding the floral note. Balanced with the gentle spices ginger and cinnamon Cushi B achieves a heritage fragrance still popular today. Enjoy the feelgood fragrance of Cushi B which has been every so slightly tweaked into this new modern classic.
