~ Studio Limited Originals Collection ~
The Studio Limited Originals are perfumes created by Nocturne Alchemy built from the most beautiful perfume notes (and single notes), accords, resins, and creations in our Studio and worldwide. Sometimes rare, often luxuriant, Studio Limited is just that: perfume offerings that are limited due to their ingredients and availability. Individual Studio Limited Collection items will be available once sold out, or components can no longer be attainable. Perfumes are only available in our new precisely 5mL slender blue bottles; samples are unavailable for Studio Limited. This Collection will continue to expand with new and exciting fragrances. On rare occasions, some SL Original stock runs low. In the new year, we offer the same recipe with slightly more expensive ingredients to increase the scent profile and new Studio Limited perfumes for your SLO Collection.
Choose perfume in the drop-down.
2023 SLO are now presented with a precise oil content of 5mL slender blue bottles with black lids (coated metal) with plastic liner and plastic reducer specifically for these bottles. You can take out the reducer if you prefer. See photos at the very end for the insert/lid/bottle. The new Slender bottle will allow more space in your perfume library storage cases/boxes for their slender design. Please clean the lip of the glass or orifice insert before closing with a clean tissue or cloth to ensure a good seal. Always keep your perfume bottles upright as a best practice.
PLEASE note Vanilla will naturally darken slightly (golden) with age. It is a natural occurrence.
OPAL VANILLA is retiring at the end of 2023 or while supplies last. It is not returning once retired due to component issues. CRYSTALLINE is retiring at the end of 2024 or while supplies last.

Black Musk: Presented here for a new single note to the Studio Limited Collection - imported Egyptian Black Musk
Black Star: Dark Egyptian Cacao, roasted and crushed in the Studio, then immersed into pure oil, blended with a little (Greek) Blood Orange zest oil, and sweetened with Mallow Root Absolute. A sensual Egyptian Musk is the softness underneath that combines all of the scents into this Black Star and a touch of Amber-Musk *2021 edition with aged amber-musk, the same perfume only richer.
Bloodstone: Dragon's Blood is naturally deep blood red. Please keep in mind when you apply the perfume to your skin. This is the natural colour of the resin we have used and alchemically transformed into perfume oil. A beautiful perfume on its own or applied as a layer with the Permanent collection of Dragons to enhance the Dragon's Blood in each of the Dragon perfumes
Blue Topaz: A beautiful Blue Musk blend of aquatic musks and oceanic pine but not the 'ocean' staple of salt and sea, but of mermaids and mermen, perfume for a fantasy musk of Atlantis
Bourbon Vanille: Bourbon Vanille with touches of almond, pistachio, gold sweet tobacco, and white musk. Aged Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans. A drop of aged Crystalline in an Oak wood barrel. Alone or layered with any of your favourite SLs will create a beautiful vanilla tone for your personalized perfume. *Please note Bourbon Vanilla solids are part of pure Bourbon Vanille perfume and, in cold weather, will solidify slightly and appear cloudy; this is normal. A little shake and warm roll in your palms (lid facing up) will blend the perfume perfectly. The naturally occurring vanilla solids will age beautifully into the perfume and darken over time.
Cinder Vanilla: Ember Vanilla Absolute infused with firewood smoke, Black Clove infused with Bourbon Vanilla Beans whole and Mahogany Wood embers, Bastet’s Ice Cream accord, Bourbon Vanille Absolute, and burning redwood cinder
Crimson: A single note with accents given to enhance. A pure Egyptian Red Musk is a skin musk that envelopes the wearer in a sheer, deep, and aromatic scent that binds with the natural warmth of the skin and is very alluring on the skin. The colour is a rich, vibrant red from the Red Musk petals used during the perfume process. Apply sparingly to enjoy the natural colour of the red musk petals.
Crystal: Harvested in Egypt with Egyptian Black Vanilla pods, flecks extracted and blended into a beautiful and smooth White Musk. This perfume is about precise binding and timing, and we hope you enjoy it as it is one of our customer-favorite single notes.
Crystalline: A thick viscous Vanilla that comes on soft and subtle creates a cacophony of a beautiful cloud of vanilla purity. It is not a food vanilla, but one that makes you feel at peace, tranquil, and right with the world. Crystalline, named in 2009 - for the signature Vanilla scent it creates, is one solid scent of uplifting Vanilla from the stigma of a Vanilla Orchid, especially for this perfume. Wear alone or layered with most any NA perfume from our site. Crystalline is composed of a supple skin musk to lift the vanilla note. Crystalline is a naturally occurring viscous perfume oil due to its vanilla components. *Retiring end of 2024
Diamond: Three different Redwoods, Egyptian Frankincense, and pure Cedar.
Egyptian Musk: Single note scent - of PURE Egyptian Musk. The thick, clear, clean, mild beautiful scent is the scent of Egypt. Created from Musk Mallow, Ambrette Seed, and Musk Flower.
Ember: Beautiful pure Frankincense of the Boswellia Sacra Tree in Yeman and Oman and dark crimson crystals of Myrrh from the branches of the Commiphora Myrrha tree from the Arabian Peninsula.
Ember Vanilla: A haunting Vanilla cream with accents of caramel and a sweet kiss of brown sugar, in which we mean the vanilla is underneath teasing and sweetening the woods of exotic Indian Sandalwood, American Cedar, California Redwood, and the haunting decadence of our ICON Egyptian Oudh as part of this blend. A vision of smoked vanilla but only using the finest NA SL ingredients. It can be layered with more SL Sandalwood perfumes, SL Vanilla, SL Diamond, or SL Amethyst. A log fire with vanilla accented in the smoldering wood. *same ingredients aged to accent the scent profile. *New 2021 version is now in stock. With the same ingredients and recipe, aging this perfume will bring it to peak perfection.
French Vanilla: French Vanilla (slightly sweet and buttery vanilla, slightly toasted coconut due to the coconut barrel we aged this vanilla in, but completely a unique vanilla). Wear this alone or under a scent needing something different at heart. French Vanilla is blended with our Crystalline to enrapture the subtle elements of vanilla essence.
Garnet: Cherry wood, amber, and rich musk. Black Cherry essence and Australian and Karnataka (formerly Mysore) Sandalwood finish the scent.
Indigo: Words to visualize with this perfume oil are 'heavenly,' 'purple,' 'peaceful,' 'ethereal,' and 'grounding'; imported African Musk.
Kashmir: Deep blood red musk. A scent that is both animalistic (vegan) and ethereal once it blends into the chemistry of your skin. This perfume is a viscous, deep blood-red colour due to the nature of the components used to create such a beautifully haunting perfume.
Kobalt: Exquisite Vanilla Accord of Cairo Vanilla Orchid leaves, Pure E/O of a true non-hybrid Egyptian White Vanilla grown specifically for NA by our beloved Egyptian Alchemist in Cairo. Blending with only the truest and highest quality of vanilla worldwide. 8 Vanilla Orchid oils of Cairo, Madagascar, Spain, Reunion and Comoros Islands, West Indies, and Kenya.
Mexican Vanilla: Mexican Vanilla Bean, Crème Fraiche, lemon rind, white cinnamon, buttercream, and powdered sugar
Moonstone: This was sold out, highly sought after, and requested a return. We found enough vanilla beans to cull the perfume again with the husk, fleck, and essence of African White Vanilla to bond with a dash of Crystalline. This is a fresh batch and is best when aged. Of course, you can apply it to the skin now, but the scent will resonate with aging. The true Husk, black and white Fleck, essence, and whole of African White Vanilla with a kiss of Crystalline will only get better.
N2: Beautiful Egyptian Musk from the edge of the Nile and only from Aswan, Egypt.
N4: Magnolia Blossom, Egyptian Blue Heather Musk, Blue Sandalwood, Muguet; all beautifully blended into the most delicate Egyptian Musk by our Studio.
N5: A beautiful White Egyptian Musk with subtle amber and sandalwood nuances and touches of spice from Italian White Clove and Australian Blue Peppercorn. Sensual and slightly spicy Egyptian Musk.
N8: A sensual Musk created with the absolutes of ylang-ylang, neroli, white jasmine, white floral musk, white rose petals, and sandalwood with a drop of Bastet’s Amber.

Vanilla will become more beautiful with age. *Retiring end of 2023 or while supplies last. Will not be returning once sold out.

Patchouli: A true scent of Patchouli 100% organic and pure. Imported from Alexandria as Patchouli leaves and root and created as Perfume here in our Studio. This perfume will only become richer, smokier, and more poignant with aging. Truly a significant Patchouli for any perfume lover. Rich, smoky, and viscous gold patchouli.

Please wear your perfumes and note some single notes do not have as long shelf life as others; some are 3-5 years, depending on their nature of distillation, while others can last a truly long time (10+ years) if kept out of direct sunlight, the cold or excessive heat. Storing perfume oils correctly can give a long and sustainable life to your SLOs.
