    Default Aesop's Reverence

    I'm looking for a fragrance that is similar to Aesop's Reverence hand balm, if anyone has smelled that. Unfortunately, they only make it in hand cream and hand soap form, but I am absolutely obsessed with it. Unfortunately, they don't provide any description for the scent other than: Woody, Earthy, Citrus. If anyone has any insight, I would appreciate it!

    Default Re: Aesop's Reverence

    So - ever since I bought a tube of Reverence, I've been toying with essential oils to try to recreate the smell because it's INCREDIBLE and I want it in everything.

    I don't know of any pre-made perfumes that smell identical, but if you're up for a little DIY project, you can make a perfume oil that's really close - and also can be used in a diffuser, or added to whatever products you want.

    The proportions of aromatic oils in Reverence are (loosely):
    -4 parts Bergamot
    -4 parts Bitter Orange
    -2 parts Javanese Vetiver*
    -1 part Grapefruit
    -1 part Sandalwood*

    *It's important to use Indonesian or Javanese Vetiver. Haitian and Bourbon (from Madagascar) Vetiver essences tend to be more sweet/savory/nutty. Only Javanese Vetiver oil has the dry, smoky, spiciness that makes Reverence so unique.

    *I used the AuraCacia Sandalwood oil that's been diluted in Jojoba oil. That's mostly what you'll find in a supermarket, and it works just fine.

    Good luck!
