What others say

Sue Adams – Country Life Magazine
When I wanted a perfume I asked for Antoinette’s advice. She held my hand, thought for a long moment and then handed me the one she thought would be just right. It’s a solid perfume in a little jar and it’s perfect for me. Whatever magic recipe Antoinette created in this perfume has worked its magic on me.
 Joan Jones – Hostess: My Treat Evenings.
Thanks again for a lovely evening! It was super to have you here and I know that I will really enjoy my perfumes.
Jodene Shaer – international business owner, published author of the book, The Holistic Entrepreneur, and speaker.
Just from meeting me, she made me the most perfect personalised perfume, all with plants that called out just to me in the perfect quantities. The harmony of scent has become linked to the breaths I take when my day begins, in the midst of it all and when all is done and I give gratitude for another day.

The generating, channelling source of Moodsense has come into my life at the perfect synchronous time to place the base note in my newest work.
My sculptures are all about the shifting of all our senses and true to her word,
Antoinette created the perfect sent from the essence of all the earth materials I used in my latest creation A.R.C
So much so that people entering the vast chasm of the sculpture were shifted to tears, euphoria, weightlessness.
This was always the intention of the sculpture though I know now that the advent of Antoinette’s essential alchemy completed the circle.
In my practice, the lesson of trust and handing over has only been enhanced by my experience with Antoinette.
In every aspect of our engagement i have experienced her willingness, passion, and truth to commitment to discover and hold the higher frequency so elusive to us all, yet the entire reason for our journey.
Elementally thank you,
