Sense of scent:
“Ramp up your strengths in pursuit of relevance.”
IS YOUR LIFE FADING INTO A BORING GRAY?
The name AuraVera is derived from two Latin Words
A breeze or the soft movement of air
AuraVera is the refreshed feeling you experience when softly moving air touches your skin unexpectedly.
A tugging connection with the fragility of life that surrounds you and an authentic moment of feeling truly alive.
Now add a magnificent scent to this goosebumps sensation. The column of air gently surrounding you is animated with a complex fragrance.
It is in this moment, when you fully engage your olfactory sense along with all the others, that your existence bursts open.
The AuraVera experience paints your life in multitudinous colours and textures that give the very act of being alive such richly textured meaning.
The connection between perfume and personality is like an old-fashioned radio tuning in to a song.
Once you hear even a fragment of that music, the mood of the song sets you free.
Layer your fragrances to match your mood, or adjust them according to the seasons of your life.
The savoir-faire of natural ingredients – all the way from the cradle of perfumery.
AuraVera uses top-quality and long-lasting oils from one of the oldest perfume ateliers in the world.
Even though your exclusive Eau de Parfum is made to order, it contains secrets and knowledge that is more than 200 years old.
An enticing sensory experience,
In the 18th century perfumers made individual perfumes based on interviews with the perfume wearer.
In our lifetime, this practice watered down to perfume being suggested through the wearer’s preference of a coloured rosette.

Making sense as a Scent Maker
A father, a freestyle philosopher and fashionista who has been on top of his game even before many started playing.
He wouldn’t say it himself… But – that he brought designer apparel names to our wardrobes, and Italian quality to our interiors – is a fact.
He always had a secret weapon though.
One that the is willing to share with the world.
As a boy he already had an appreciation for smell:
Lemongrass scented floor polish, mouthwatering fresh bread, powdery fabric softener.
But the day he smelled Agarwood really changed his life.
Suddenly I realised my ability to conceptualize things, to look at second- and third order consequences…
At that moment that ability felt akin to a supernatural power.
I had to share it with the world.
The complex fragrance of Agarwood struck a chord so deep within the then serious businessman,
that he had to “strike the bell and bide the danger” of following his own Nose.
For those flying with their own wings
You moved beyond buying from billboards.
AuraVera is the fragrant mist to remind the non-conformist to stay curious.
You choreograph your life, you are not a curated piece in another man’s show.
AuraVera is for those who calm themselves in a storm.
Men and women who are smart enough to understand, know thyself is key to grow thyself.
“It was love at first scent. I can see myself wearing each one on a different occasion. One to wear everyday, one to wear on a summer’s day picnic and one to wear on romantic dinner date out on the town (like wearing Channel No. 5, only sweeter and more me).”
“Thank you a million times for my fabulous Scentient Selection, it arrived just in time for my birthday. They are beautiful. The one I love most of all is ‘Youthful.’ It is so me and everyone in the family adores it. Seeing that I stay in South Africa, please inform me how to get more of this awesome perfume, please.”
“Loved receiving my box, wrapped in a cotton art print! Special handwritten note from Roan the Perfumer about my newfound ‘The Activist’ side. I’ve been wearing one of the 3 perfumes, ‘Being At Peace’, all week, and it feels spot on for my mood now.”

Fragrance and the being of being
Understanding how it connects…
At AuraVera we have spent plenty of time thinking about our passion.
Can perfume really do all this?
Perfumery consists of a using top notes, heart notes and base notes.
We consist of having a body, a soul and a spirit.
Is it mere coincidence that – like a first look – the top note reaches the nose first.
Only later are you aware of the soulful heart notes…
But it is the base notes’ sillage, the trail left in the perfume wearer’s wake, that often stirs the spirit…
With the 3-fold Scentient Selection,
we invite you to
be introduced to your
know your soulful heart notes
enhance the spirit of
your base notes.
