Helloooooo Posse! Portia from AustralianPerfumeJunkies with you again from Sydney, Australia! I have always liked to promote the small independents and today we are talking micro niche. Jane Cate the perfumer is doing fine work and you should check out their terrific sample set, check their Etsy store. Great selection of natural perfumes including today’s offering Bronte.
Bronte by A Wing & A Prayer: Natural Perfumery

Top: Bergamot, Pink Pepper
Heart: Turkish Rose, Tuberose, Linden Blossom
Base: Amber, Ambreine, Benzoin, Musk
I have the oil and it has a rich heavy quality that even in the bergamot and pink pepper opening reminds me of a beautiful heavy brocade fabric, colourful, dense, intricate and ornate. I think opulent would be a good adjective for Bronte, there is definitely a feeling of old world glamour and hints of depth already.

The flowers in the heart are lovely and fresh, could be straight from the florist and have a little of the AC wetness feeling about them, still lingering. To be honest I can smell only bouquet, it’s probably my lack not the fragrance, though it could be a spicy rose surrounded by soft breathy white flowers and the cum-y sweetness of linden but I am being swayed by a note list. To me the heart of Bronte is a bouquet.
In a couple of hours we hit creamy amber dry down, here is where Bronte really shines. It’s a soft warm glow that lingers only about an hour but it is gorgeous. Like highly polished woodgrain it is deep, lustrous and dazzling but in the most elegant and refined way. I love the oil because even in a natural I am getting over 3 hours of definite fragrance, quite an achievement.
