Aura Soma 39

A Bergamot style scent that evokes a sense of joy and simplicity.

Natural Alternative: Aura Soma 39

In Aura-Soma this colour combination relates specifically to ancient Egypt and the ancient wisdom. A sense of deep joy not necessarily over anything profound or meaningful but rather in simplicity. Where we have been worried or anxious then this combination has created some relief, returning joy to life, when joy was missing.
A combination that helps us stand up for ourselves, when we feel we haven't been listened to or heard.
This fragrance should evoke memories of joy and indulgence as well as warmth and a sense of ‘healing’ and ‘nurture’.

Top note: Bergamot, Lemon, Geranium
Middle note: Black Pepper, Nutmeg, Ylang Ylang
Base note: Vanilla, Cedarwood
