1. TRNP is an Australian artisanal perfume house that specialises in small-batch, natural botanical fragrances. Each perfume is created in 5litre batches. Although subsequent batches are blended when each one is gone, the fragrances are made exclusively from natural ingredients and can vary from batch to batch depending on harvests and available ingredients. This feature is creatively exploited. Variations are listed on the website under each fragrance by batch year.
2. We use simple, recycled cardboard boxes for packaging. We don’t use printed cartons with plastic inserts and outer plastic as we want to avoid creating more non-biodegradable rubbish in the world. Also, we invest all our financial resources in the natural perfumery ingredients, not in the packaging. TRNP is artisanal, not mass-market production. Hand-made, not factory produced.
3. TRNP flacons are beautiful vintage French crystal and Italian glass, and they are all dab-on bottles not atomisers. This factor also aligns with environmental sustainability as these beautiful bottles may be reused over and over. We also offer reusable 10ml and 35ml spray atomisers.
4. At this time our international postal service will not transport alcohol-based fragrance, only oil parfums.
5. All testing is done on humans (we first). No animal testing ever.
6. Aside from organic beeswax used in the solid perfumes, all other products are 100% vegan, and all TRNP fragrances are gluten-free.
7. Although these fine fragrances are entirely composed of natural ingredients, they do not in any way smell like aromatherapies; they are works of art.
8. As the nose at TRNP, I don’t use synthetics, its a personal choice, and largely driven by the fact that I am an aromatherapist (among other things) and I love pure plant essences. This is not to say that pure essential oils are entirely benign, nor does it imply that all synthetics are hazardous to human health. It is really about the complexities of pure plant essences that cannot be synthesised. This feature alone totally captures my imagination.
9. All TRNP natural botanical products are uncompromisingly beautiful luxury items; every product is lovingly crafted from the very best quality of natural ingredients. Each item is hand-blended to ensure an experience of pure pleasure. Treat yourself with the absolute confidence that these goods are indeed ‘goods’.
10. Be generous when wearing naturals, they are very strong, but may require reapplication a little sooner than synthetic fragrances because they are not artificially boosted to ‘stick’ like lacquer to your skin. My philosophy is not to assault others with an overwhelming sillage. The radiance of each fragrance is best dosed to create an intimate aura of fragrance, whereby a person standing nearby may enjoy your fragrance but a roomful of people won’t wilt from asphyxiation. Sillage is best experienced in the caress of a gentle breeze. Longevity depends on several factors: ambient temperature, skin moisture content, humidity, activity and of course, the fixative components of the fragrance. In general, an oriental amber will last longer than a white floral. A great way to extend the scent-life is to moisturise your skin, or layer with the matching unguent before you apply your fragrance. This is true for all perfumes (natural and synthetic) which fade faster on very dry skin. Most of my perfumes last 2-4 hours after application – I tend to take my bottle with me to reapply after a few hours. It really depends on personal taste.
