MAIDEN Archetype Botanical Perfume

A collaboration between Amrita Aromatics & Alexandra Schueler


In the spring she returns. The bright pink hyacinth and tiny purple grape sisters… they beckon one close to the ground with her nose starving for the first sweet scent of the season. Cold hands on the soil, warm hair in the sun, and eyes closed, she inhales the syrupy, satiating flavor of the petals. 

Goosebumps arise as her senses awaken, a giddy, resonant spark of new ideas and playful impulses, she lays back, surrendering to wild daydreams, unfettered creative swell, and unfurling determination. The wild maiden archetype comes forth with inspired feminine ferocity ~ a paradoxical force to be reckoned with. 

Blended by the incredible Ananda Wilson of Amrita Aromatics, the MAIDEN archetype botanical perfume is a sweet, floral perfume with a sassy kaffir lime and grapefruit twist, intoxicating ylang ylang, champa, and Moroccan rose heart, with tropical swirls of real coconut.

A drydown of oakwood, sandalwood, and vanilla leave a delicate, natural sweetness on the skin. It's gorgeous, flirtatious natural perfume to embody the essence of the MAIDEN archetype.

”A lot of people are afraid to ask for what they want. That is why they don’t get what they want.” ~Madonna

About Ananda Wilson

I am continually inspired by nature, trees, water, art, rhythms, dance, music, myth, and life phases.

Working with plant aromatics is my devotion and specialty; with a knack and nose for blending unique and highly praised, sacred, therapeutic perfume blends - both perfectly simple and evocative ones as well as deeply complex, sophisticated, and rich compositions. They are designed to elicit pleasure medicine, amplify intentions, catalyze sensory bliss, self care ritual, emotional support and seduction, and to ignite your imagination with a powerful terrain of scent imagery and narrative.

Natural perfumes' sillage and story varies widely depending on the blend. It may be strong, soft, last long or short, change over time, and respond to your body temperature and hormonal cycle. It is incredibly alive and responsive to each individual. Know that when you purchase a natural perfume, it is an intimate engagement in the wild natural world and will not offer the predictable, cloying, or forceful type of experience that commercial perfumes often do.

I invite you to anoint yourself with a fragrant prayer to your beautiful Self.
