Amber Lenihan's aim is to produce high-end, natural perfume using unique scents from New Zealand, and around the world. We're very lucky to wear and enjoy her beautiful small batch bespoke Circe perfumes here at Small Acorns. The growing interest in a beautifully crafted, complex fragrance made from natural essential extracts and without synthetic additives means that boutique perfumes, like Circe, are just coming into their own.
Amber says that she wanted to make perfume honest again. She believes that everyone should experience the aroma rather than be overpowered by it. And of course her natural essential extracts and absolutes, many of them from New Zealand's own native botanicals, are subtle, seductive, and safe.
