A Message from Suzy Larsen:
Just like the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly, once essences are blended, a tranformation or synergy occurs. A synergy is an interaction of two or more agents or forces where the combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects. Once the perfume bottle is opened, this magical synergistic vapor escapes to unlock hidden memories, feelings & desires in yourself or those in your intimate circle. Let the mating games begin.
Hi, I’m Suzy Larsen, your natural perfumer. Nice to meet you and thanks for visiting www.nakedleaf.ca. I want to tell you a bit about what I do and the different paths I’ve chosen in my personal and professional life. Since I believe that each perfume carries the spiritual stamp of its creator, it’s nice to know where your perfumer has walked.
Becoming certified in Aromatherapy from Mount Royal University in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, was a significant step in fostering my love of perfumery. Although we learned intimately the therapeutic potential of essential oils, I was always attracted to the artistic creation of perfumes. From that point on I remember making a personalized perfume for everyone who crossed my path.
Later I studied with the Alive Academy of Natural Health to become a Nutritional Consultant. Biochemistry plus Anatomy & Physiology courses helped me understand the effects incompatible substances like transfats, dyes, and additives have on the body. By this time I was committed to living a healthy lifestyle and choosing natural products. Meanwhile my interest in essential oils and perfumery grew stronger until I began my own natural perfumery business in 2007.
Creating perfumes, along with raising my spirited child, Madeleine Coco, has been my joy and much needed artistic retreat from left-brained activity. When I get down to the business of making perfumes, I let my heart connect and my spirit soar then something magical happens.
My wish is that you can feel or "listen" to your perfume and hear the message it might have for you. I invite you to sample all of the natural perfumes in the Au Naturel Collection and find which speaks loudest to you.
Suzy Larsen is now proudly a member of the Natural Perfumers Guild.
My Mission Statement: Naked Leaf Perfumes is committed to creating beautiful, inspirational perfumes for the purpose of enhancing the pleasure and well-being of your life using only 100% natural essences and organic grape alcohol.
