The Parfum comes in a spray vial, the Perfume Oil comes in a roller vial, and all orders arrive in a gift-able box. The Alchemist utilizes professional fragrance ingredients & raw aromatics to create unique, high quality, small-batch scents by hand. What is Parfum? Pafum is the most pure and highest quality of fragrance types. Parfum scents typically last up to 6-8hrs and are best for your skin with the least amount of alcohol and highest concentration of fragrance oils (15% - 40%). NOTE: International Shipping is available for Perfume Oils only. Why Perfume Oil? Perfume Oil is a more intimate, natural, and subtle carrier choice. Holding fragrance closer to the skin, perfume oil evaporates scent layers at slower and more uniform rates. The Organic Jojoba oil used in our Perfume Oil promotes healthy skin with the same pure, high-quality concentration of fragrance oils as our Parfum (15% - 40%). Other Types of Fragrances: - Eau de Parfum (EDP) 15% - 20% (4-5hrs or less) - Eau de Toilette (EDT) 5% - 15% (2-3hrs or less) - Eau de Cologne 2% - 4% (2hrs or less) - Eau Fraiche 1% - 3% (2hrs or less) Scent Concept Photo by Hassan Ouajbir Product Photography & Graphics by "Pixxi" with Redwood Alchemy ALLERGY ALERT: These products were created in a facility that uses concentrated natural plant ingredients and may cause reactions in people with plant related allergies.

One of the myriad things I love about Indie Perfumes is how they can transport you to new worlds and back through time and Anubis is a directly sweeping fragrance back through the sands of time to a royal funeral in Ancient Egypt. Quite a few precious resins make up this blend and my nose clearly detects the almost lemony frankincense amplifying above them all with various dry herbs and a hint of salt. The promised papyrus is the last note to leave me 15 hours later and this was exactly what I was hoping for when I ordered this mini sample bottle- a well researched scent experience not of this century.
This Anubis scent is so intriguing! It was made to replicate an ancient recipe so it's not what one might expect of modern perfume. Deeply layered, this scent is anything but subtle. It's rich and resinous but in a completely dry way. Sandy, salty heat permeates this scent. It evokes incense smoke and sacred herbs. Not for the faint of heart! A definite must for Kemetic spiritual practice. And anyone who wants a truly unique scent with dark and bitter undertones and a light gilding on top.
The Alchemist is so great! I had messaged them about how the Anubis I got the second time (this is my third anubis~) smelled differently than the first and they went the extra mile to work to try to solve why and fix it! They did way more than I expected anyone to, and its wonderful. This set of perfume samples are also wonderful! The scents are so interesting, grassy and naturey and lovely. Anubis will always be my most favorite scent but I love trying out others too! Will always, always come back to this shop.
An amazing and unique scent! Not for the faint of heart! It is absolutely a warm and dry layered scent. One of my favorite oils. Thank you!!!
As wonderful as the oil version! And the un named and new scent sample included is amazing! A wonderful blend of ocean crispness and fresh greenery, with a bit of earthiness (like moss and eucalyptus). I don't know the name for this new scent will be, but when it's available in the shop, get it! You'll love it!!
