We want our favourite perfume to last, especially when it’s as individual as Sonata. A deep, heady fragrance, it is the unique combination of geranium, ginger and lime in Sonata which make it a bold statement perfume – versatile for day and evening and a contender for the ‘occasion wear’ category. Sonata, named by founder Jim Payne after Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, is made without compromise – free from animal ingredients and animal testing. Our sense of smell can evoke powerful emotions and memories and the fragrance in Sonata will invigorate and calm the senses. Keep Sonata by your side for a day or evening uplift and wear with a clear conscience.
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.
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.
Anahita is a timeless classic fragrance for perfume lovers looking for a new gently spiced, floral perfume. Hand-crafted in Britain, made without animal ingredients and never tested on animals, Anahita gives a lasting individual scent you'll love to wear. Fragrance is as much about expressing our individual personality as it is about the scent. Cypress with sandalwood and cedarwood gives Anahita a woody base with the sweet floral of ylang ylang with the slightly fruity lemon and delicate spice from the ginger.
Anahita was a Persian goddess given to healing and wisdom. Enhance your day when you wear Anahita and enjoy its therapeutic scent.
