Welcome

Welcome to Aether Arts Perfume! Home of Fragrance as Art Form and Personal Expression.

Aether Arts Perfumes are mixed-media Aroma Art expressions. What this means in terms of our products is that I use aromatherapy-grade essential oils and absolutes, and only the highest quality synthetic materials. I personally curate each ingredient I use, searching through many sources to find the best possible choice.

My personal philosophy as an artist has been to embrace any material I find beautiful. This has never excluded man-made materials whether they are fibers, beads or perfume oils. For me “beautiful is beautiful”; I make no judgments based on extrinsic value systems. Ultimately, my products speak for themselves; they are hand-made in small batches by me. All are phthalate-free and in an oil-essence format intended for topical use only; do not ingest. Base oils may include: Jojoba, Fractionated Coconut, and Grapeseed. Both natural and synthetic ingredients have the potential of causing irritation in sensitive individuals. If irritation occurs, wash affected area and discontinue use.

Refunds

I want you to love your purchase! The best way to ensure this is to try a sample size before investing in a full size product. Remember that everyone has unique skin chemistry so it pays to "try before you buy".

Since perfume is a body product, I can't except returns for obvious hygiene concerns. The exceptions to this rule would be an incorrect item being shipped or a faulty mechanism such as a sprayer that didn't work.
