Product reviews from our experts…
The tobacco, amber and sandalwood notes are alluring. They capture a winter’s day spent sprawling by the logfire in a countryside resort. The artisan bottle and handwritten cursive name adds a sense of personalisation.
Their efforts in sustainable packaging and overall business practice, from sourcing their ingredients to giving back to first nations organisations is great. Supporting young female perfumers is pretty unique!
I love that this natural perfume has been aged for 6 months, meaning only a small dab is needed, resulting in the scent lingering for hours and hours and changing subtly over time. A perfect balance of earthy and sweet citrus notes, oscillating between grounding and uplifting. A divine unisex scent, with minimal glass packaging.
I also love that Cygnet sources from local, small-scale farmers + distillers and that efforts are made to respect and take care of the earth and give back to local First Nations communities. This is a brand that truly cares – social responsibility is not simply an afterthought.
A delightfully petit, vintage style, bottle that releases a beautifully bold and multi-layered fragrance. Nocturne is the sophisticated scent I turn to for nights out. I love that Cygnet Perfumery uses natural grape spirit as the base of their fragrances, which comes from upcycled Australian wine grape residuals. Now that is sustainable thinking!
I am also impressed by Cygnet’s dedication to ethical practices, implemented through tracing ingredient supply chains and in-house formulating and manufacturing for example. The brand’s sustainability goal of aiming for 100% circular packaging by 2025 is commendable.
