MOUNTAIN HERBS PERFUME FROM QUEENSTOWN NATURAL PERFUMIERS
The scent of Mountain Herbs perfume from Queenstown Natural Perfumiers is like the meeting of the sun with the melting snow in the mountainous environment of New Zealand. This means that it has a lively, refreshing and attractive scent. These characteristics are due to the presence of superior aromatic components in each layer of the aromatic pyramid, namely:
- Top notes: hyacinth, lemon, mountain pepper, galbanum.
- Heart notes: rose, violet, jasmine, incense.
- Base notes: rosewood, patchouli, amber, sandalwood, mint.
Mountain Herbs by Queenstown Natural Perfumiers is an ultra-pure natural fragrance product, formulated with 100% botanical extracts. The fragrance is available in two main sizes, 50 ml and 100 ml.
- Spray directly onto the skin for perfuming.
- Can be used as a skin soother after shaving.

Scent of a landscape
Yesterday I was lucky enough to hear some of the story of Queenstown Natural Perfumiers, a business founded by Serena and Harold Jones (she a botanist, he a poet) which has set out to capture some very specific scents from the Queenstown area landscapes and create them as naturally as possible – of the four scents, three are Ecocert-certified as 100% natural, while the fourth uses ‘synthetics’ as an environmentally conscious choice.
Both Harold and Serena, whom I’ve known for years, are passionate about the wild places of this country and our beautiful landscapes. I was able to sample each of the scents, picking out Lakeland Flora and Wilderness Berries as the two with most ‘nose appeal’ for me.
For a sense of what the perfumes invoke – and for much better writing than you’ll get from me – head to Reviews for comments by novelist Laurence Fearnley.
