Aftelier Perfumes Vetiver & Frankincense Face Elixir is an otherworldly ultra-luxe face oil that is mystical, sublime, deep, warm, creamy, soothing, woodsy and ethereal. It has no sharp edges, it lacks pungency and it immediately calms and soothes the spirit while deeply nourishing and hydrating the skin.
As I have previously noted about Mandy's Face Elixirs, she "inherently, and rather magically, understands each of the ingredients that she carefully chooses to unite. The end result is the likes of which you have neither imagined, nor experienced.... It is, in a word, extraordinary." She has described this process to me as one in which each of her Face Elixirs include a lot of the named essences and then she adds, "a few facets of aroma to them."
Aftelier Perfumes Vetiver & Frankincense Face Elixir is lightweight and ultra-fast absorbing, and it melts into the skin leaving it nourished, deeply hydrated, remarkably soft, smooth, supple and luminous. Furthermore, this beautiful calming aroma facilitates a restful and peaceful slumber, and therefore is a perfect nighttime companion– though I must confess that I use it in the daytime as well.
Vetiver and Frankincense Face Elixir features unusually soothing vetiver CO2 that I buy directly from the grower in India. This rare extraction of vetiver is filled with clean, earthy and precious wood notes. The frankincense CO2 is warm, resinous, bright and slightly citrus. The vetiver and frankincense blend seamlessly to create a delightful aroma that is uplifting and relaxing. Drifting off to sleep, inhaling this gorgeous aroma, makes you feel as if all is right in the world.
Our lightweight face elixir is immediately absorbed softening and conditioning your skin. Use on your clean face before bed, and drift off to sleep in a light veil of fragrance that promotes relaxation. When you wake up, your skin will feel wonderfully nourished and revitalized.
