Homemade Vegan Fragrances Inspired by Victorian Literature by Tanya Kuznetsova

Beauty and eco-friendly enthusiast Tanya Kuznetsova from Ravens Apothecary creates conceptual, coconut oil based fragrances and vegan skincare inspired by literature, the love of unusual teas and nature’s simplicity. A naturalist at heart, Kuznetsova pays homage to Victorian literature classics in a series of women’s fragrances and men’s cologne.

The artist creates a hypothetical and signature fragrance influenced by the most prolific and classical literary couples, Jane Eyre’s Mr. Rochester, as well as Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice’s Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. Temperamental and passionate Mr. Rochester ’s illusory scent consists of masculine, earthy tones, such as hot black pepper, bitter-sweet cinnamon, resinous frankincense and herbacious sage - topped with a sharp accord of ginger. While sweet and simple Jane’s elixir is composed of feminine, yet subtle notes, which include vanilla, damask rose, clary sage, bergamot and benzoin resin. Named ‘Jane Eyre’ after the novel, the fragrance is a modest and sophisticated essence of the protagonist.

Other literature favorites feature a fragrance line inspired by children’s literature, which includes Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Avonlea.

The whimsical designs are 100% natural and botanical. They’re an ethically and intelligently created functional product, which is completely cruelty-free. They’re tender and romantic reminders of our education and favorite book figures, which will have the literary junkie in you swoon. Find the entire collection in her Etsy shop.
