From the all natural perfume company – Providence Perfume Co

With the approach of autumn, many houses are releasing a “noir” fragrance in anticipation of the cooler weather and evening social events. Natural perfumery is no exception to this hot trend. Providence Perfume Company announced the release of its newest of many natural fragrance, Divine Noir, on August 7, 2012.

Divine Noir is “a darker foil” to the house’s popular orange blossom fragrance, Divine. The original Divine is a classically feminine ode to perfumer Charna Ethier’s “glamorous friend who is never without her red lipstick.” Divine features a beautiful blend of orange blossom, neroli, vanilla and botanical musk.

Its new darker sister, Divine Noir, shares the characteristic orange blossom of the original but offers a richer and deeper interpretation—more like a fragrant little black dress to be worn after dark. “Noir” also describes the juice itself, with its intense dark brown color inspired by a classic fragrance.

“My Grandmother’s dressing table, with its ever present bottle of Youth Dewperfume, captivated me as a child. What mystery that dark perfume held! The deep brown liquid evoked glamour and drama. Without even smelling the perfume, there was an anticipation of enigmatic elegance. In composing Divine Noir, I wanted to capture the sensuality and style of a bygone era using luxurious natural ingredients,” explains Charna.

A specially created dark Madagascar vanilla bean tincture lends color and blends with other dusky ingredients including sarsaparilla, aged patchouli and oakmoss. These dark base notes form a rootbeer-like accord and provide a warm support for the beautiful flowers and spices atop.


Top notes:
bitter orange, coriander bergamot

Heart notes:
orange blossom, neroli, jasmine grandilforum, rose absolue

Base notes:
oakmoss, angelica, vanilla bean, elemi, aged patchouli

The fragrance retails for $115 US for a 1 oz. atomizer bottle, $26 US for a 6 ml travel atomizer, and samples are also available.  Please visit the Providence Perfume Company official website to purchase.

Charna is a perfumer who owns her own natural perfume company – The Providence Perfume Co.

In celebration of Robertet’s ongoing love affair with the rose, this perfumer was offered Robertet’s Rose Petals Natural R33279 fractionated essence to utilize in a perfume of her own creation.

natural perfumeLocal girl [at least, to me] Charna Ethier is a self-taught natural perfumer who was raised on a communal farm in New Hampshire.

Charna’s Rose Bohème was born from a desire for a “rich, deep dark rose.” “I need something to stir me creatively. For example, costus root made me think of wet woolen mittens in the winter, that electric ozone before a snowstorm. I’m intrigued by how their characters interact on the skin.” Charna likes the “patchouli/rose—it’s symbiotic. I love the rose/fir combination, it’s so green and jammy. I used aged patchouli, oud, rooibos, leathery saffron absolute, rosewood, mimosa, geranium, and two other roses. The Turkish rose is the Earth Mother—she gets along with everybody, while the Bulgarian rose is reed-thin, crystalline, regal.”

Charna’s most memorable rose moment? “On one side of our house, there was a tangle of rosebushes, and way underneath, there was a sort of cavern, a place where I could find some privacy, escape to. I would lie on he ground—the smell of the earth beneath me—and look up through the tangle at the sky.”
