Some people don’t fully understand the link between perfume and power, but the truth is, it has always been there… I thought it was about time I highlighted this, so you can understand why I so passionately believe that perfume is empowering.
Right back in the annals of history, the power of scent was being used to dramatic effect. Cleopatra used lashings of it to beguile Mark Antony before he even saw her, entrancing an entire city as she passed by in her (now-legendary) perfumed boat. She communicated her immense charm, strength and wisdom to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people who had never even laid eyes on her. And long before Cleopatra’s time, the ancient Greeks were using perfumes to appease the Gods, believing as they did, that anything so beautiful must have come from the heavens.
Perfume is much more than an adornment, it is a means of communication. If a picture paints a thousand words, then fragrance tells a thousand stories… and a bespoke perfume tells the story of you. The true you.
Because your scent receptors are located in the middle of the emotional centre of the brain, perfume can take you back, in an instant, to a moment in time – highlighting happy memories and bringing moments of joy to the forefront of your mind. A bespoke perfume contains subtle echoes of who you are and whispers of who you want to be. Importantly, it can convey how you want to be perceived by others, and those “others” will be aware of that, even if they don’t quite realise it.
Wearing such a perfume has a uniquely healing effect, because it enables your conscious mind to “lock arms” with your inner best self. Everything you love about yourself and your life in general is carried in a fragrant whisper, diffused by the warmth of your body, empowering your subconscious self with every inward breath, by opening an emotional connection to your own inner strength and wisdom.
Lots of people are unsure of the link between healing and perfume. But here’s the thing – I came to perfumery via aromatherapy, which is quite literally “healing with fragrance” and in the years since, I’ve pushed relentlessly at the boundaries of what that means in my quest to help as many people as possible to feel their best.
I bring all of my knowledge and gifts to my work, which means that the perfumes and fragrances I create with and for you do more than just smell nice – they also have a measurable effect on how you FEEL.
One of the keywords that I use to describe my work is “Perception”. I investigate how you want to feel, and appreciate that how you want to be perceived by others is an important part of that feeling. When you are certain others perceive you as being confident and in control, it is much easier to relax into that way of being.
One of the many reasons why my work is so important to me is that I grew up in an environment where self-expression and confidence was a complete no-no. My parents laughed at my dreams and ambitions, and I was so dreadfully under-confident at school that there was a question-mark over whether I would be allowed to take “Office Skills” as an option because they didn’t think I was suited to an office job! (They weren’t wrong, but I don’t think they meant it the way it’s unfolded…)
In using Perfume to connect you to your happiest memories, those stories that are an emotional link to the times you felt loved, confident, even invincible – we are accessing to your inner strength. Including the things you love now in your perfume gives you an instant emotional connection to happiness that, importantly, goes directly to your emotional centre and isn’t filtered through thought processes. Finally, as mentioned above, the knowledge that we have built in scents that project the way you want others to perceive you is hugely empowering. You are effectively telling people everything good about yourself without the need for words and they are receiving that story right in the emotional centre of their brain where it is uncontaminated by thought and judgement!
This perfume then becomes the messenger of your awesomeness AND the olfactory connection between you and your “best self” as uncovered during your healing sessions – you can see why choosing my VIP option is a great choice. You get a new clarity of outlook, you get anchored into that great new way of being, and you get to “tell” others how fabulous you are without needing to say a word!
Younger me would have LOVED this – and that’s why it lights me up so much to offer this as a service now. You deserve to live an empowered life – so if you need a bit of help unwrapping your best self from years of faulty conditioning and want to make sure you stay fabulous in future, my VIP Experience has you covered.
All of the love,
