Anji Bamboo Mist. Unisex. Natural Perfume.
Trekking in the heart of Anji Bamboo Forest in the early morning mist. The fresh, green and slightly acidulated scent of broken Bamboo leaves and stems while clearing the way towards the top of the hills. Taking a deep breath of the scented air and purifying one’s body and mind. The rejuvenating feeling associated to thriving physically, mentally and emotionally. The fulfillment, deeply penetrating one’s soul, brightening every moment since then in a promise never to take anything for granted again. The subtle power of an evanescent fragrance that reminds what one’s made of; best treasured once lost and found again.
The magic of imagining a Bamboo Forest through the unexpected floral, green and fruity accords of intense flowers such as the magnificent Chinese Aglaia, the exotic Australian Boronia and the enigmatic Tuberose. Spirituality, complexity and depth emanate from Palo Santo, Coffee Flower, Wild Mushrooms and Precious Woods in an evanescent fragrance best treasured once lost and found again in a perpetual movement.

France, with its long tradition of luxury perfumery, is the place NadiaZ has elected to source its perfume bottles, made by Pochet du Courval, a four-centuries-old independent family business and world leader today in luxury glass, renowned for its purity, clarity and brilliance.
Thanks to the irreproachable quality, these bottles offer a perfect seal with the pump mechanism, preventing contamination or spillage of the precious perfume content. Small variations in geometry make for an attractive non-standardized appearance.
NadiaZ choice for glass rather than crystal is founded on ecological and health hazards grounds. Crystal contains a certain amount of lead that confers its shine. However it is a highly toxic substance for all forms of life. Crystal manufacturers have found solutions to mitigate the negative effects; nevertheless NadiaZ prefers to limit the widespread use of crystal. However, would you wish a taylor-made glass or crystal bottle, NadiaZ will research solutions amongst its network of glass artisans to meet your desires.

NadiaZ formulations favor the preservation of the active ingredients by using virgin plant oils, thus many perfumes have several highly valuable phases, or sediments, which need to be blended by shaking before use. Waxes and butters may solidify in cold and regain fluidity when gently warmed up with your hands or in lukewarm water.
As many of the perfume ingredients are wild indigenous plants extracts, NadiaZ perfumes may vary slightly in scent, depending on ingredient origin, climate and harvest conditions, extraction methods and processing. While all NadiaZ ingredients concentrations are adjusted by the perfumer’s nose, NadiaZ aims for uttermost quality in its materials, without standardization, sourcing them from a wide variety of locations and producers. This minimizes their ecological footprint and involves working with smaller communities. As a result, this limits the environmental impact on a single geographical origin and improves the sustainability of harvesting practices, as well as reducing climatic risks.
Recycle glass and paper. Essential oils cannot be disposed in water; for safe disposal, pour on soil away from any water sources.
NadiaZ Perfume bottles can be refilled by sending them back to NadiaZ (directly or through your contact representative).
