How do we make our elixirs?
A while ago we wanted to rebrand and brought sprays to the scene. After purchasing the right machines, bottles, tops, maturing containers and all the rest of it we needed to choose which the right concentration to use to create the best Elixirs.
After finding a base, we started working on the elixirs. We wanted the scents to last much longer than any highstreet fragrance, therefore we decided to make our elixirs highly concentrated. This lets the fragrance sit on your skin for much longer and even till the next wash when sprayed on clothes.
Deciding the right concentration of oil is so important for an Elixir as you don’t want it to be overpowering and giving everyone around us a headache but on the other hand, you want other people to be able to smell your new fragrance. This is why we test them for so long before releasing them on our website, we want them to be perfect for you.
Once we were happy with our creations, we then created large batches, mixed extremely for the scents to mature. We mature each batch for 3 months before we bottle and sell any elixir. Each batch is kept in a cool dark place during this process. This ensures our oils are fully mixed and bonded with the base, making every spritz a reason to smile.
Once three months have passed, we are ready to start bottling and sending them out to you. Each 10ml bottle is filled using a pump so the correct amount of the beautiful perfume is dispensed. The atomisers are then cut to the correct size and crimped onto the bottle (using our fancy new machine). The silver collars are pressed on to secure the top of the bottle, making sure there is no leakage when the orders are sent out. Topped off with their lids and they are ready for labelling.
Each bottle is then wiped down and labelled by hand, yes it is very satisfying when the labels match up perfectly around the bottle first try but that doesn’t always happen so we have to be very picky with what we send out! Only the best for you guys. When we are happy with the bottles they are then secured into bubble bags and ready to be sent out to our customers.
As you can imagine this process can take a long time, this is why we only have three of our scents in Elixir form.
