Botanical perfumer Alexandra Balahoutis formulates each original fragrance with certified organic, wildcrafted, biodynamic, and hydro-distilled essences. Limited batches are then reverently hand-blended, set into a base of custom-distilled esprit de Cognac, and aged for a minimum of six months. All Strange Invisible Perfumes are completely botanical and unfiltered. They are decanted and bottled in Venice, California. Hydro-distillation is a gentle immersion method that captures the complete aromatic profile of a plant, including the fine aroma chemicals that cannot be captured with steam distillation. Esprit de Cognac is the original perfumers’ alcohol used in France from the sixteenth through the eighteenth century. Strange Invisible Perfumes commissions a twelfth-generation master distiller in Napa Valley to produce this premium spirit from non-GMO, pesticide-free grapes.
