“Beloved poison prepared by the angels! Liqueur that consumes me, O the life and death of my heart!”
~ Charles Baudelaire on perfume, "The Perfume Flask" from The Flowers of Evil collection of poetry, 1857
Ivy's Poison is a small-batch brand of natural perfumes and beauty elixirs made in Northern Canada. Our inspiration stems from the 1850s apothecaries where folklore and witchcraft collided with science, and the poisons were cures as much as they were agents of peril. It was here where dosing of 'poisons' and natural botanicals for curative measures was being perfected.
As with all Ivy's Poison products, and even Ivy herself, the most enchanting beauties tend to have a dark side. The voluptuous rose or intoxicating jasmine flower can cause harm as much as they can bring sensual pleasure. The secret to safely harnessing these fragrant nectars for perfume and optimal skin health lies in respecting their power and knowing their thresholds.
It is in this magical space, where bewitching botanicals mingle with smart and luxurious formulation, that our craft unfurls.
Welcome to Ivy's Poison Apothecary.
About Our Perfumes & Aromaceuticals
Seductive natural perfume and ritual skincare with aromaceutical fragrance (perfume created for its skin benefits) is the magic of Ivy's Poison.
Ivy's Poison perfumes and skincare elixirs are blended with natural extracts, essential oils, and absolutes that bloom into a sumptuous experience on the skin. We’re inspired by the 1850s French Gothic collection of poetry by Charles Baudelaire ~ Les fleurs du mal or The Flowers of Evil ~ where he describes perfume as "beloved poison prepared by the angels."
Our Perfume Oils contain pure parfum concentration of essence ~ between 20% and 25% ~ in a base of organic golden jojoba wax making them lavish little potions. Our softly perfumed Moisture Mysts (now available for preorder!) are skin-loving beautifying serums blended with nutrient-rich plant lipids and aromaceutical fragrance with a host of hair and skin benefits.
Ivy's Poison perfumes are designed to sit close to the skin, to be enjoyed by you and those invited into your personal space. Sensuous application and a dewy skin-feel make these oils luscious enhancers of relaxation, meditation, and spellbinding seduction.
