Botica is hand blended, small batch natural fragrance conceived and created in one tiny bedroom of one tiny house by the train tracks that run through Portland, Oregon. As a self-taught perfumer, I use scent to create feeling (and vice versa, in fact). After having read several fascinating books on the art and history of natural perfumery, In 2011, I began to mix my own olfactory magic. After much experimentation, obsession, further study on the subject, and countless custom blends for friends and family, Botica was born.
Botica scents are made using all-natural essential oils, concretes, absolutes and resins. These materials are mixed into a base of pure, nourishing apricot kernel oil. Beeswax and raw coconut oil are added for solid perfumes.
Inspired by experiences had and experiences wished for, by times long past and times that have yet to come, by wanderlust and by travel, by nature and by the city, by nature in the city. Botica will take you somewhere you are not, or help you appreciate where you are.

I do not accept returns, generally, as I cannot resell my products once they have been used, even slightly. An exception would be made, of course, if there was an error on my part. In that case, we could do an exchange, and I would cover the shipping cost for the return, and the new item shipping out.
