New! Beaumes de Cassis organic solid perfume
The ultimate fruity bon bon, Beaumes de Cassis is the essence of celebration – the clinking of glasses filled with sweet dessert wine and jasmine petals. Beaumes de Cassis opens with a euphoric burst of juicy blood orange, ripe berries and jammy black currant bud. Osmanthus and Tasmanian boronia complete the fruity mélange that finds its heart in a woodsy mix of benzoin resins and fir balsam. Bold at one moment and deliciously dreamy in the next, this is a scent for savoring the moments of joy and beauty in the world.
What to name this gorgeous bon bon? I was stumped! I sent samples to my Purrfumery friends with their orders and held a naming contest. Thank you to Jodi Battershell from Solidly Scented for your contribution to naming my new perfume! Jodi is a delightful perfume lover, writer, and perfume blogger specializing in solid perfumes.
Available as an exquisite, creamy solid.

Available in a 5 ml Starlight compact in a velvet pouch, or a 10 ml Sterling silver jewel box.
The black currant buds were a stand-out note on my skin. Juicy blood orange and the apricot-leather scent of osmanthus imparted a gentle sweetness and balanced the black currant’s astringency. Fruity floral boronia was folded seamlessly into the mix. But the fir notes and forest aspects were an important part of the fragrance experience, too. This was definitely a fragrance that could be appreciated at first sniff, but Laurie’s perfumes are always wonderfully complex, and there was a lot to parse and ponder in this little gem.

Beaumes de Cassis from Velvet and Sweet Pea’s Purrfumery stands apart from the pack due to Laurie Stern’s rare and accomplished sensibility along with her high standards for quality materials. Not since The Vagabond Prince’s Enchanted Forest has the currant note been so elevated and distinctive.
