Impromptu Solid Natural Perfume in Brass Mini Compact
The birth of this natural, botanical perfume was very spontaneous and unplanned, thus the title Impromptu. It all started with clearing my drafting table off to do some painting. Impromptu is a faux leather fragrance with notes of spice, herb and wood.

"...sweetly aromatic and slightly smoky perfume that opens with a typical woody/astringent character before everything moves into place as it begins to warm on the skin. The leather emerges slowly from the mélange of notes that includes woods, spices, geranium, rose, tarragon, basil, clary sage and mimosa, and after about thirty minutes (on my skin), it becomes the central theme and lingers for hours as a warmly balsamic, honeyed “glove leather.” Dare I say that this is a very sexy fragrance, and one that will work equally well for either gender although it is being presented as a feminine scent."

The warm, amber fragrance is contained in an engraved oval shaped compact opening to reveal a separate round pan filled with solid natural perfume. These cases are made in the USA from vintage molds that go back to the 1940's. Each one has been plated with a special finish to create an antique quality. No lead or nickel have been utilized. The front of the compact contains a Victorian diamond pattern that has a warm antique brass finish. The case measures 42mm tall (just over an inch and a half) by 33mm wide (1 1/4 inches) and the inside recessed circle for the solid perfume pan measures 23mm.
