#13 Wild Child by Opus Oils ~ Poem Magnolia May Polley


One summer you taught me to track an animal-
We were both healing the stillness
Of many long months spent alone.

You would run me baths-
And turn back the bed
Before dawn and after the hunt.

In the afternoons-
We would have coffee on the porch
And sometimes I would fall asleep on your chest.

We always knew this would happen-
We reunite time and time again
To remember what it was like to be in love.

My smell was different then-
Pure and clean
Mixed with the essence of the huntress.

~ Poem copyright Magnolia May Polley 2011

Amy Winehouse died today. Cause of death has yet to be determined...

She was dark & difficult & troubled with a capital "T"... She had a voice that sent shivers, a soul that made quivers, & she didn't want to go to Rehab... Though we all know that she should have... She went over the edge of WILD CHILD, right before our very eyes... We saw her there, standing on the ledge of oblivion, looking over & thinking about dipping her toes into the water... She was about herself still, waiting and wondering... about looking back from the other side....

...Looking back, it's so easy to see it coming, her prolonged "sudden" departure, just like all her groovy friends in Club 27... Robert Johnson (who is considered to be the first member of the 27 Club), Kurt Cobain, Jimmy Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janice Joplin, Brian Jones and so many others. She was a Shooting Star - a bright light in our sky, and then "pouf" just like that she "burned out" before she could "Fade away... and Radiate"... I like to imagine that they are all some place Beautiful & Evergreen, making sweet music together forever and all through Eternity...

Amy Winehouse: The Final Interview

Ambrosia Jones, Australian Priestess of Natural Perfume interviews Kedra Hart PLAP Perfumer #13 and owner Perfumer OPUS OILS Jitterbug Perfume Parlour

This interview was originally Posted on PERFUME PHARMER.

Kedra has fascinated me ever since I first came across the wonderful website for her beautiful shop “The Jitterbug Perfume Parlour”

The name itself has special meaning for me, like Kedra, I was hugely inspired by Tom Robbins book “Jitterbug Perfume”, and we ended up swapping samples of the “Pan” perfumes we had both designed based on this book!

She’s a delightful, passionate and quirky woman and her perfumes definitely reflect this!

What inspired you to start making perfumes?

I have always been one of those people who is “led” by their Nose…

A friend of mine moved up to San Francisco and discovered a wonderful group of people who were working in “Aromatherapy” (this was in the late 80’s so this was a pretty new thing). While I was visiting her I participated in some Aromatic workshops with her and that was it! As soon as I began learning about the different aromatic materials, I immediately became completely consumed! From there it snowballed into an obsessive “relationship,” and here I am today over 20 years later still obsessed and still fascinated.

I think Aromatherapy was a jump off point for most natural perfumers…. do you find the ideas from Aromatherapy useful in making perfumes?

Yes I definitely do find many of the principals of Aromatherapy to be very useful in creating Natural Perfumes, especially some of my more esoteric blends! Part of the appeal of a Natural Perfume (or any perfume for that matter), is how it makes you feel, and I find that my emotional reaction to a scent is strongest when it’s a 100% natural perfume, unless of course it’s a fragrance that is steeped in memories due to prior scent associations….

I like the fact that you make it really clear on your website which perfumes are completely natural and which aren’t… what do you find are the differences for you in formulating natural and mixed media perfumes?

There is SO much confusion out there on this subject as it is and I certainly don’t want to contribute to the mosh pit! How the use of PR is implemented to inundate the customer with useless or misleading information has long been one of my pet peeves in the Cosmetics Industry. One of my main functions at Barneys New York (Beverly Hills) was to educate staff about the difference between natural and synthetic ingredients…

I don’t really think about the difference between natural and mixed media perfumes when I am in the middle of the blending process, at that point, I am just thinking in terms of scents and nuances.

How did you learn perfumery?

I am basically self-taught. LOTS of reading, but mostly I was guided by the aromatics themselves – there is just no substitute for intensive and prolonged observation and experimentation with the materials! One of the things that I love most about the Art of Perfumery is that there is always something new to learn.

What are your personal favorite ingredients to work with?

Wow, that’s a really tough question! There are SO many favourites, and it very much depends on my mood as well as the inspirational feelings that are moving through me at the moment… If it was a “Desert Island” type of scenario, and I could only choose say 7 (I was aiming for 5, but just couldn’t narrow it down that far – lol!) I’d have to say Jasmine, Tuberose, Orange Blossom, Patchouli, Ambergris, Labdanum, and Sandalwood.

What do you like about these?

(I’m so with you with Orange blossom, patchouli and sandalwood… but Ambergris does nothing for me. Just smells musty and mildly amber-like… I know other perfumers rave about it but I just don’t get it… and Tuberose just makes me nauseous….)

It’s hard to say why but I’ve always been one to gravitate towards the heavy voluptuous notes. It seems I’ve got the aromatic taste of a Hummingbird!

As far as the Ambergris goes, to me it is the scent of “Time.” One of my all time favourite aromatic combinations is Ambergris mixed with Unrefined Coconut Oil – it is absolutely heavenly!

Sorry to hear about your Tuberose Problem! How is the scent of Fresh Tuberose flowers for you?

Not that fond of it either…like narcissus, I think I have a mild allergy to it that just puts me off the scent…Which ones don’t you like or find really challenging?

Well, of course the resins are the most challenging essences to work with on a physical level…

Pounding, grinding, soaking in alcohol, swirling the stuff to see if it’s finally dissolving, decanting, filtering….

On a personal taste level, I’ve never been a huge fan of scents in the “Ozone” category, and most Herbal notes require very careful dosing…

One of my biggest frustrations is the difficulty of creating “ozone” notes using natural ingredients, grin!

I totally know what you mean! The very idea of “Ozone” basically SCREAMS aroma Chemical to me! I do have one trick up my sleeve that seems to give an ‘Ozoney” effect to everything, but it is so strong that there has to be a good ounce of Base Blend to mix it into…

I’ve noticed you use fractionated coconut oil instead of alcohol as a base… what made you choose this?

Actually, we do offer all of our scents in an alcohol base for those who prefer that medium but I find there is something very sensual about “FCO” as a Perfume base medium! I love the fact that oil based scents really come alive when they co-mingle with a person’s own PH, which encourages a very personal relationship with one’s own Perfume. Also, when we first began conceptualizing the company, there were not many perfumers who were using FCO as a base, so definitely part of the decision was based on us wanting to offer something a bit different to the marketplace.

It’s certainly an interesting base to work with… oil based perfumes definitely tend to have a softer, more sensual touch to them… and you’re right, they do “blossom” when applied to a persons skin… FCO is also a bit different to other oils isn’t it… I find it’s a lot lighter… and has a different “feel” to it…. I make both perfume oils and alcohol based eau de parfums… Oils give greater depth and longevity… but I do love the way that alcohol enhances the light top notes in florals and herbal/citrus colognes

Fractionated Coconut Oil is wonderfully light for an Oil Base. I love that you can use it in a spray bottle! Plus it won’t stain, like some other oil bases…

You are absolutely right about the lift that alcohol as a base gives to the top and middle notes of a perfume blend… And alcohol based scents can be especially nice in hot summery weather like we’re heading into now! It’s a case of “Effervescence” vs. “Velvet” – both are delicious in their own way!

What kind of people buy your perfumes?

We get all types, which I love (from Gothic to Earthy, to Beverly Hills Socialites and everything in-between!)

I’ve got to come and visit sometime… That video on Youtube from when “Brian Badonde” visited is a classic…. and you’ve got the wonderful Tiger Powers as a model too, grin! Where did you find the boy? (And does he do house calls??)

Yes, you must come for a visit, how fun would it be to have a PLAP Party at the Parlour?!…

The YouTube spot was actually a commercial for Microsoft’s search engine “Bing,” featuring the comedic antics of Kayvan Novak as his famous alter ego from the hilarious BBC TV Show “Facejacker.”

They totally “punked” us – they said that this Brian Badonde guy was an art critic and he wanted to learn about the Art of Perfumery… Of course, you saw what happened when he and Tiger got together (You wouldn’t believe what they cut out)… We’ve been told it’s an instant classic due to it’s similarity to an Abbott & Costello “Who’s on first” skit. I still cringe when I watch it, but you have to be able to laugh at yourself in life, and well… there ya go!

Tiger Powers is one of a kind, isn’t he…? I found him on the outskirts of Hollywood strumming a guitar and petting his Kitty cat… He couldn’t play a lick but with his good looks, who needs talent? In fact, Kayvan Novak took one look at him and demanded he be in Microsoft commercial.

House calls?… I’ll ask him! House broken? Sometimes…

Here’s the link to the video… BRIAN BADONDE DOES PERFUME

Which perfumes are you most proud of?

I hope this doesn’t sound conceited but it’s actually very hard to choose as I love and am proud of most everything I create.

It think all of us perfumers feel that way about our “Children”, grin!

Off the top of my head I would choose Absinthia, Giggle Water, Dirty Sexy Wilde & Lady Death…

It’s funny, I am such a creature of the moment when it comes to scent, that when I thought about this a little more on another day – I came up with a totally different list – LOL! Not to mention that I completely spaced on my new “Wild Child #13,” Patchouli scent for the Summer of Patchouli Love 2011 Event!… That is one that I am especially proud of, as I wanted to create a patchouli scent that would appeal to a wide spectrum of people. I tried to capture the idea of Patchouli, in all it’s dark earthy glory, and it’s timeless bohemian charm… It is a unisex power scent… Lately, as the temperature rises here in Hollywood, I find myself gravitating to it more and more… My favourite thing at the moment is to Layer “Wild Child #13″ with “Gold Digger,” (“Gold Digger” from our yet to be released “Les Bohemes” Collection)… Gather Round, the Lady is a Killer!

That’s cheating! You can’t rave about perfumes you didn’t send me samples of! Dirty Sexy Wilde is seriously cool though… it starts off really clean and sophisticated… but there is a dirty, wild undernote to it that grabs at your senses… perfect for a spoiled aristocrat!

“Dirty Sexy Wilde” was a scent that really took on a life of its own!… Originally, I created it as an example for our Animalic Perfumery Class, (in its original version I used the authentic Animal notes of Civet, Ambergris & Deer Musk) but the scent we sell today uses aroma chemical animalics; only the Ambergris is a true animalic note and is “Beach Found” of course.

“Island” rather impressed me too… it’s so incredibly sweet and fruity which is a real achievement in an all natural perfume! How did you do that?

Thank you! I used a lot of floral absolutes in Island. I wanted to capture the concept of an abundant Hawaiian garden in full bloom on a warm and luscious day. I used Jasmine Auriculatum; which is a fruity Jasmine note that really helped to bring out the “fruitiness” of the other florals.

Do you have any special stories about any of your perfumes?

One time we were contacted by a customer who wanted to share her story of how she found us… She was at a club in San Francisco and she caught a scent trail that enchanted her enough to circle the block until she found the source. It turned out to be one of our oldest clients who had been purchasing our “Absinthia” by the “boatload” since we first launched the Collection.

She told us that it took major prodding and begging on her part to get the name of the “intoxicating scent!”

Right, that’s it. You HAVE to send me a sample of “Absinthia” now.

Will do ;~).

When you custom design a perfume, how do you approach this?

It’s always a bit different depending upon the client… The starting point, once I receive the “Brief,” is to take the client on a “Scent Journey,” where we stop and smell all the Roses, and the Jasmines, and so on, moving through all the possibilities of scent notes to include in their Fragrance Palate.

I find nowadays I find it easier to pre-select the notes I show a client according to their scent brief…. otherwise they tend to get rather lost amongst the many many oils and absolutes…. it can be so confusing for a non-perfumer… Do you find that there is any kind of pattern for you in what kind of people like which kind of perfumes/notes/ingredients? I find I can often pick scent preferences by the colours people choose in their clothing….

Yes, I agree that it is often a good idea to pre-select notes to show them. Usually, I can get a good idea of their scent preferences by having them give me examples of scents that they like that are in a similar vein to what they would like me to create… Many people don’t know about the individual notes enough to describe them on their own, but they can usually tell me what it is that they like within their favourite scents.

Once their Palate has been selected, I begin to “Sketch” their formula. After I have a basic outline, I then mix up several variations, each with a different possible direction for their scent. Then I present these to my client and we go from there. Usually they will have a very strong feeling for one of the directions, and once that has been selected; I begin to make modifications and adjustments until we “hit the nail on the head.”

It’s such a fun thing to do isn’t it!

Absolutely! It’s like figuring out a really difficult puzzle or something…

Kedra, I’ve had a lot of fun chatting to you…and I’m DEFINITELY going to have to fly over for a PLAP party!

Note: Kedra was also one of the 13 perfumers taking part in the Patchouli Summer of Love Challenge…and her perfume “Wild Child” has been getting rave reviews! Look on the PLAP page to read more!

"She lives on Love Street
Lingers long on Love Street
She has a house and garden
I would like to see what happens

She has robes and she has monkeys
Lazy diamond studded flunkies
She has wisdom and knows what to do
She has me and she has you

She has wisdom and knows what to do
She has me and she has you

I see you live on Love Street
There's this store where the creatures meet
I wonder what they do in there
Summer Sunday and a year
I guess I like it fine, so far

Lingers long on Love Street

I would like to see what happens

La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la..." ~ THE DOORS

...LOVE STREET is a 1968 song by The Doors which appears on their album Waiting For The Sun. The song is about the street in Laurel Canyon, California, where Jim Morrison lived with his " La belle amour" Pamela Courson. Their address was 8021 Rothdell Trail. Morrison and Courson referred to Rothdell Trail as "Love Street" because they would sit on the balcony and watch countless hippies walk by. Morrison also wrote the "Waiting For The Sun" album here, and most of "Soft Parade", along with countless poems. Love Street was originally a poem that Jim wrote for Pam about their time in the house on Love Street. Robby Krieger suggested it be a song, and put music to it. The poem turned into the gem of a song we all know as Love Street.

Released as the B-side of "Hello, I Love You", "Love Street" received a small amount of airplay on the radio.

***The Groovy Paisley Pix of Pam & Jim Morrison & Friends, were taken by Raeanne Rubenstein at their Boutique THEMIS. Jim posed with Pam for the store's ads. Pamela traveled to Europe frequently to stock her store. The store was hardly ever open and kept odd hours...

EXCLUSIVE Interview With Kedra Hart by Felicia Hazzard


Re-post of original interview that appeared on PERFUME PHARMER

Kedra Hart, perfumer and owner of OPUS OILS JITTERBUG PERFUME PARLOUR in Hollywood, California is a perfumer with a unique style but with a simple approach to perfumery that has made her a household name around the globe.

The OPUS OILS collection include an eclectic of fragrances and themes to suit everyone such as The Absinthe Collection, The Afraid of the Dark Collection, Burlesque Collection, Dirty Sexy Wilde, The Divine Collection, The Fetish Collection, Island Girl Collection, Jitterbug, Les Bohemes, Roller Girl and introducing as of July 2011, Wild Child#13 Collection.

My discussion with Ms. Hart is about THE DIVINE COLLECTION. This is due to its historical and mythical aromas around deities that surround beliefs from around the world and for the summer Scent Event, SUMMER OF PATCHOULI LOVE 2011 where the main theme is peace-love and “patchouli “scent.


Kedra, I think THE DIVINE COLLECTION is just wonderful and it is 100% ALL NATURAL. Why is it important to have THE DIVINE COLLECTION an all natural perfume?

It felt like the best choice for the subject matter… With this Perfume Collection I wanted to tap into the concept of “Magical Perfumery,” the practice of using the energy in Aromatic essences for the purpose of stimulating and affecting one’s conscious states. While Aroma Chemicals may be pleasing to our noses, there is no power in them whatsoever, “energetically” speaking. Natural Aromatics have often been referred to as the “SOUL” of the plant, and these concentrated essences are capable of having a considerable effect on our physical and mental bodies.

Kedra, what is it that you like best about THE DIVINE COLLECTION?

While I was working on this collection I used lots of rare and unusual essences to create the scents. Several of them were a bit challenging (Seaweed Absolute, Choya Nakh) and so it was especially rewarding to be able to find a harmonious balance within these blends.

ISIS perfume is a representation of the GODDESS ISIS. How did you determine what notes to use to describe “mystical enchanting blend”?

For each perfume in the Divine Collection I incorporated notes that were somehow linked to the Deity that was the theme of the scent… The Blue Lotus flower is considered sacred to Isis, and Frankincense & Myrrh are two of the most ancient aromatics in existence, and they were used heavily in Egypt for Religious & ceremonial practices to produce a heightened awareness of the spiritual realms.

Kedra for PAN perfume, how did you come up with the name for it?

The Goat God Pan has long been one of my all time favorite God archetypes… What’s not to love about a musky, earthy Goat-Man/God who “rocks” his Nymphs with his pipes, whilst celebrating nature by “stinking up” the place?… Of course his association with the world of fragrance was cemented in Tom Robbins’ “Jitterbug Perfume,” a treasure of a novel that blew my mind wide open when I was a youth, and continues to blow my mind every time I visit it again… I always felt especially kindred to this book as “KUDRA” is only one letter off from my name, after all…

PAN has a note of PATCHOULI and I know the ‘Summer of Love PATCHOULI 2011′ Scent Event created by Perfume Pharmer’s Monica Miller favors PAN perfume. Kedra, what does it mean to be apart of this unique event dedicated to PATCHOULI?

Participating in Monica’s Summer of Patchouli Love 2011 Event has been an absolute blast!!!… I am really enjoying the community spirit that it is inspiring, and not to mention some very DEEP experiences, as far as Scent Memories and all the deep dark secrets that Patchouli has unearthed for me personally…

Kedra, I love the notes you chose in Venus! It is an array of rich notes with highlights of floral. Kedra, what did you want to capture in this fragrance that gives a unique and edgy scent?

What I wanted to capture in this scent was the “Birth from the Sea,” aspect of the Venus Mythology… This led me to include several unusual Natural Marine-type notes such as Seaweed Absolute, Choya Nakh (burned crushed Seashells), and Beach Found Ambergris. I chose to create a heart of floral notes with a chorus line of Rose, Jasmine, & Ylang Ylang (the notes most traditionally associated with Venus), in support of the “Leading Lady” Pink Lotus, an aquatic perennial.

I have noticed more and more creations of “green” fragrances on the market. Eros has the right balance of notes with a citrus flavor. How important is it to have a “green” fragrance in a perfume collection?

Thank you for the compliment! I am so very pleased to hear this :~)…

Yes, I definitely know what you mean about the “GREEN” Trend… And it is most definitely one of “THE” most important Categories of Fragrance to have in a Perfume Collection at the moment. I first noticed this trend stirring last February 2010, when I was working with The Four Seasons in Beverly Hills on a Valentines Day Custom Blend Perfume Event. It was sort of a phenomenon actually – every single client that I worked with (from the Tourists, to the Producer & His Wife) requested a “Green Scent.” Some of them wanted a “Gourmand Green,” some wanted an ‘Earthy Green,” and some wanted “A Green Green,” but it was across the board “GREEN” with a capitol G, literally EVERY time!

There was a really special moment at Twilight on Valentine’s Day/Eve (I was totally saturated, covered in GREEN Bases with Orange Blossom Hearts, at this point) when the husband of one of my “Couples” was out on the wrap-a-round balcony (on the 16th Floor) and he called to his wife and I to…, “Come out her right now!” because there was a “Hummingbird going crazy!!!”… When we went out to join him, the Hummingbird flew up to me at eye level moving in to my Personal Space and started “buzzing” around me, circling like a Dervish as he proceeded to “Check Me Out,” at close range… Let’s just say, it was clearly very erotic on His part, and I’m quite certain that he was responding to my green scent… So, I would have to say that even as far as “Nature” is concerned, “GREEN” is very alive as a premiere choice on our Aromatic Palates right now.

Thank you Kedra so much. I truly appreciate getting to know more about THE DIVINE COLLECTION.

Thank You, Felicia! I really enjoyed your very thoughtful and interesting questions!
