Cult of Scent online orders will be on hiatus for a while due to some inspiration-gathering travel. Any orders made after 2nd May will not be sent until the end of June.
Something Beautiful began with a story of dawn kisses under an orange tree and was brought to fruition by spring nights filled with music, candlelight, passion and laughter.
Someone Wonderful gave me the inspiration to create this as a tribute to the dedication and courage of putting something beautiful into the world.
Billie McCarthy launched her first album 'Live at 505' in May 2014, I created Something Beautiful for her to wear for this night. This fragrance is inspired by the beauty of her voice, her cheeky smile and unforgettable stage presence.

International orders: Full bottles of perfume have been formulated in an alcohol free base to fit with international shipping restrictions. While the fragrance compound will remain unchanged in formulation, the alcohol free base may affect projection (slightly lesser) and longevity (slightly longer).
All Cult of Scent fragrances are unisex, handmade in small batches, tested on willing humans (and so of course they're cruelty free!) and make very special gifts.
Please note: Something Beautiful is not suitable for vegans as it contains beeswax absolute.
Something Beautiful has 1 semisynthetic compound in it called Hedione (or dihydromethyl jasmonate) which has been added to give the fragrance a little lift. While Hedione is naturally occurring (found in Jasmine absolute), it has to be synthesised as extracting it from jasmine absolute would be an unsustainable practice.
The rest of the ingredients in Something Beautiful are completely natural....and stunning beautiful!
