Quick delivery, adorable boxes with perfume samples, I have yet to decide which one is my favourite, but so far I’m leaning towards Jane Eyre, or maybe Anne of Avonlea. They’re all Lovely in their own ways!! Thank you so much!!

I am very fussy about fragrance and for years have been searching for one that is perfect for me, free from animal cruelty and doesn’t bring me out in a rash. You have no idea how difficult this has been. Being a lover of literature, and feisty, empowering female heroines in particular, I stumbled upon Ravenscourt Apothecary and fell in love with the idea of fragrance named after some of my favourite characters in literature. I treated myself to this sampler set and I’m pleased to say it has lived up to my expectations (and more) I think Jane Eyre may possibly be made especially for me, and I only say ‘possibly’ because I’m wearing Alice right now and I am sorely tempted by this too. Decisions. Decisions. Needless to say I will be back for a whole bottle just as soon as I’ve made up my mind! Oh and I should say that I’ve worn all four scents for four days running and no sign of any skin irritation! Bingo!
So happy that it all worked out for you! I’ve been on a similar journey to yours in terms of searching for the right perfume and my frustrations led me to create a line of my own fragrances. Thanks so much for taking the time to write about it!

All of these perfumes smell wonderful! I don’t like syntetic fragrances, because I think they have a unnatural, fake scent. I also don’t like the unhealthy chemicals they often contain. Considering my personal favourite, I’m leaning towards Alice. Thinking of purchasing one more sampler, this time for my sister who like me, loves this type of literature. I’m also interested in the tea-fragrance selection.The possibility to buy samples is a great idea, so you can try different scents before deciding to buy a whole bottle. If I would have one small complaint, it would be that it is very hard to open the bottles. At least no chance of leakage!

I loved it ! Just a bit difficult to open the samplers…

I’ve always had a difficult time with perfumes because I’m allergic to most of them–when I put them on or if someone else has very strong perfume my throat starts to constrict. It’s not dangerous, but it’s not pleasant. However I love essential oils and playing with scents, so I was so excited when I found these perfumes! The fact that they’re named after literary characters made me so happy, and I love the packaging and attention to detail, even on the small samples. The fragrances smell lovely, and totally change when they’re on your skin. My favorite is Jane Eyre, and my second favorite is probably Alice. I think I’ll be getting the tea sampler as well before making a decision on a large bottle. This would be a great little stocking stuffer too!

It was a whole new experience for me to smell organic, natural, handmade perfumes and liked it so much. It’s like to walk through a wonderful garden with lots of flowers and a breeze of mystery.
Two of the samples are my most favorites: Jane Eyre and Anne of Avonlea! Thank you so much for these wonderful fragrances.
The delivery was super quick, even to Germany.
The packaging of all goodies is beautiful and an eyecatcher in my bathroom.
Thank you again, I love your shop and the philosophy behind.

The package arrived quickly and the perfumes are very lovely! It is difficult to pick a favourite. Right from the vial it was Jane Eyre, but after I tested them
on the skin I found that Elizabeth Bennet worked the best (and Anne came very close). So it seems to make a difference to be able to sample the perfumes on the skin. They last quite a few hours too, which I didn’t expect after having read about natural perfumers.
Thank you for the experience!
Quick delivery to germany, the perfume samplebox looks lovely, the smell are all unique and wonderful. It will be hard to decide which one to buy since i love all 4 of them, thanx god for Christmas soon :-). Not to long ago i started using natural perfumes and im glad i stumbled over Ravenscout. Mega Thumbs up for the packaging. I cant wait to call a fullsize Perfume my own and display it in my Bathroom <3

I bought these as a birthday present for myself. I’m very pleased. I usually wear floral or spicy oriental scents & try t find ones that are not tested on animals. I love all four perfumes, however, Alice has to be my absolute favourite. I’m not sure what it is about it, it could be the Neroli as I’m not familiar with that scent. I like having the variety because I can put on a different one each day depending on which heroine I want to channel! It seems as though they will last me a long time too.

Bought several as Christmas presents & am very pleased with them. They arrived quickly and had clearly been packaged with great care and attention- the personal touches are appreciated and what drew me to buy from Ravenscourt Apothecary in the first place. The scents are amazing and were very well received. Overall an excellent experience- now to buy some for myself so I can enjoy them too!

Cute little box! My order arrived very swiftly with 1st class.
Finding it so hard to choose a fragrance! I adore the Elizabeth Bennet one -it’s beautifully summery and fresh. However, Jane Eyre’s scent is hauntingly sweet and feminine – and Anne of Avonlea is my absolute favourite literary heroine. Decisions, decisions…
Elizabeth (verified owner) –
Loved my fragrance samplers! especially ‘Anne of Avonlea’ and ‘Jane Eyre’, but I think my favourite has to be Jane its subtly sweet and not too overpowering (the perfect scent for the character!<3)
Danielle (verified owner) –
I have never liked perfume but love essential oils. I am a big fan of bergamot so was expecting that I would choose Jane Eyre, but I fell in love with Alice! Actually, I love all of them, but I have ordered Alice and can’t wait for it. The fragrances are subtle and not overpowering, just perfect. Exquisitely packaged and quick delivery.

What a lovely little package! The fragrances are all subtle and unique. Jane Eyre is my current favorite.
Louise (verified owner) –
I love these fragrances so much, thank you. They are great to carry in your bag and its nice to now that there aren’t any nasty chemicals in them. The customer service and the packaging was also really good. I would recommend these as presents

Great little package, perfect gift if you can’t decide which one to buy
Kateryna (verified owner) –
Tanya, thank you so much for these adorable samples! I enjoy all of them:) The thing I appreciate is that every scent is truly unique and you can find a perfect one for yourself. Personally, I liked Alice most of all (no wonder she is my favourite character:)). It is light and gentle and is perfect for a young girl. Jane Eyre is the most mysterious one, to my mind. I didn’t like it at first, but five minutes later after application it was my second favorite.
About delivery: I live in Ukraine and delivery took about a week, which is quite fast. Package was also very nice, I liked its vintage style:)

I just received my fragrance sampler yesterday. I really like three out of four scents, with Alice and Anne of Avonlea being my two favorites. The Alice smells like a beautiful English flower garden in the summer. It will most likely be the one I purchase first, but I am going to keep wearing my samples for awhile to be sure. They are so lovely and unique! I am in the USA and it took about 11 days to receive my order.

It has always been of utmost importance to me to have a scent unlike any other human. It is to have a secret; to breathe in the intoxicating aroma of the perfect, unique blend – to feel special because of it.
Not to impose my delight on anyone else, it is my new secret…. and if someone comments on the enchanting perfume, I smile. If that person has positive energy and good intentions in this life, I will share the source of the secret or gift it to them. Ravenscourt Apothecary is my new enchantress. The wait-list notification system is great. That worked out well! Thankyou from Connecticut USA

You can tell so much time and effort went into this. I adore it!

I decided to try the Women’s Fragrance Sampler & I am glad that I did!…. My favourite being the sweet floral fragrance of Jane Eyre, followed by the light uplifting scent of Elizabeth Bennet. There’s a good variety of fragrances to suit different days, seasons & people’s tastes.
Lily (verified owner) –
I got two Elizabeth Bennet and no Anne. Too bad, because Anne was the one that I really wanted to try and Elizabeth was the least one that I liked…
