Vasse Virgin's Natural Perfumes

We're very excited to announce our four brand new natural perfumes- a first for us here at Vasse Virgin. Carefully crafted over many months, there are four uniquely distinct fragrances that suit both men and women. Read on to discover more about the ingredients and, fragrances, and the people behind them.

Edwina Scherini and her son Rowan have been running the perfume workshops at our Wilyabrup Soap Factory for a number of years and both have a passion for creating natural perfumes, you'll often see them experimenting in the perfumery with the multitude of essential oils we have on hand.

They have both completed a Professional Certificate of Perfumery, and Edwina has also completed a Certificate of Perfumery in Grasse, France. Besides the formal training they have many years' experience in working with essential oils, with Edwina creating all of the current fragrances we offer in our skincare ranges, room diffusers and candles.

  • The perfumes sound divine and it would be wonderful if VV made a “Tester Box” of small vials that customers could buy to sample all four perfumes before deciding on their signature scent.
