Hi Tania! I am a natural perfumer located in Launceston and have recently launched a range of 100% natural perfumes online. They are hand crafted in small artisan batches from luxurious natural ingredients. I am now in the process of promoting my perfumes and just happened upon the Think Tasmania website. I would love to offer a giveaway prize to your readers. Thanks for your time, Kerry Wightman.
And with that simple note, we learned of yet another business owner in Tasmania with a great product to offer. We’re very keen to meet Kerry in person; she’s proved to be organised, efficient and pro-active. We’re also keen to sample èrlithe perfumes, as you will be when you learn of the advantages of this natural Tasmanian product.
èrlithe: Natural Perfumes Made in Tasmania
Kerry Wightman moved to Tasmania a year ago and used the change of scenery and beauty of Tasmania as the impetus to follow her passion for creating luxurious natural perfumes. The business is named èrlithe (pronounced air-leaf), which means ‘shine’ in the Jersey Norman language Jèrriais, the native language of the Island of Jersey where Kerry was born and grew up as a child, before immigrating to Australia with her parents at the age of twelve.
The word èrlithe was chosen, as Kerry’s natural perfumes ‘shine’ with the life-force of real botanicals. These luxurious and costly botanicals are sourced from around the world and are then skilfully blended according to perfumery principles, allowed to age before being filtered and hand bottled in small batches.
Natural perfumes are free from synthetics, aroma chemicals, fragrance oils, parabens and phthalates. As they do not contain synthetics, natural perfumes last for approximately two hours on the skin. They do not overpower like commercial perfumes – they will not announce a wearers arrival or leave a comet tail of odour behind. Instead they are regarded as skin scents, detectable by the wearer and those who come in close contact with the wearer. They may be a viable alternative for those who are unable to wear commercial, mass produced perfumes.
Due to the high cost of the botanical materials, natural perfumes are not meant to be splashed around. Instead they should be applied mindfully. Kerry believes that by applying the perfumes in a thoughtful manner and taking a moment to breathe in deeply the beauty of the botanicals, we can find moments of stillness and reprieve from our otherwise busy lives.
Kerry has chosen to make the perfumes in a 5ml roll-on parfum strength oil format and also a 15ml eau de parfum atomiser using an oil base with only a small amount of alcohol to assist the spray delivery. By being oil based, the perfumes are non-drying to the skin.
On offer for this Think Tasmania giveaway is a sample pack of all five èrlithe Natural Perfumes (5 x 0.75mls) valued at $29. From this the winner may then choose a perfume of their choice in the 5ml parfum roll-on (valued at $59 – $69, depending on which fragrance is chosen). At the conclusion of the random draw, the prize will be delivered by Kerry Wightman to any address in Australia. International readers are welcome to enter the competition, if they’re happy to pay for delivery themselves.
For more information, follow èrlithe Natural Perfumes on Facebook, or contact Kerry Wightman by email. You can also follow the blog of èrlithe Natural Perfumes, or visit and purchase èrlithe Natural Perfumes online.
As we’ve said before, the competition rules on Facebook are all too hard, so we’re going to keep this in-house. We’re also going to keep it REALLY simple. If you are subscribed to receive the free newsletter from Think Tasmania, you are eligible to enter. Apparently a random draw is still allowed in Tasmania without applying for a permit, so here’s what you need to do…
Step 1 – be a subscriber to the FREE newsletter from Think Tasmania*
Step 2 – leave a reply at the bottom of this article.
And that’s it! This will be a random draw, so comments won’t influence the outcome. But if you’d like to leave any feedback for Kerry about èrlithe Natural Perfumes, that would be really great. You could discuss your personal desire to win this prize, or even Think Tasmania… we’d love to hear it all, and we’ll be closely following all the comments. We won’t reply individually because that would upset the giveaway app (it might award us the prize!!).
