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.
Prelude has remained a classic staple perfume, steeped in compassion for humans, animals and the planet and blended with love using lemon and lime, patchouli and vetivert. They work in harmony to create a flattering night-time and special occasion favourite in the Dolma range. Treat yourself every day and make it your signature scent. Founder and formulator 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.

Jasmine, geranium and ylang ylang make Calista unmistakably floral, even with the subtle citrus of the bergamot.
