This is a deep, sensual perfume.


Gueldres is inspired by Ravenscraig castle on the Fife coast. In the 15th century the Dutch queen consort of James II of Scotland, Mary of Guelders, had the castle built after the death of her husband in 1460.

James had ordered the building of the castle for his queen to keep her safe, it being the first of it’s kind to resist canon fire.

As children we lived and played near the castle. The atmosphere of the walls in ruins, the cold spray from the River Forth crashing against the rocks below enthralled us and fed our imaginations.

The reality:  cold, wet stone. The damp carbon-y sand. The clean grass amongst the destructured rooms of the castle.

The fantasy:  The huge fires burning with logs pulled down from the surrounding wood. The dusty tapestries hanging in the living areas of the King and Queen. The heavy brocade and velvets of the cumbersome attire of the rich of that era.

A story evolves.

Aromatherapy Footnotes:

KARO KAROUNDE is not used in aromatherapy but it is found to be one of the most sensual of flower oils and is extremely rare.

The calming and grounding properties of TREE MOSS combines beautifully with the sensuality of KARO KAROUNDE to reduce stress, whilst MIMOSA lifts the spirits, potentially and can reduce the impact of worries and fears.

I bought ‘Night Sail’ and I am absolutely in love with this fragrance. It is light but warm, sophisticated but playful. The scent lasts as long as I was promised by this wonderful company and I won’t be wearing anything else from now on.

Having purchased a sample box of VYV perfumes, a friend while visiting noticed the delightful box and was curious to sample the three scents. 'Oh lovely', 'Oh lovely', was her reaction to the first two perfumes she sampled then 'Oh My God lovely' when she sampled the perfume 'Barista'.

My friend and myself have discovered 'You can 'find yourself' in one or more of this company's unique fragrances!

These are not ordinary perfumes. Their transporting sophistication and evocative depth couldn't fail to provoke intrigue.

Received 3 tester bottles for my birthday yesterday and they are absolutely divine… you only need to put the smallest amount on as they really pack a punch… absolutely beautiful rich smells. Only tried one today and already cannot wait to test the other two… brilliant perfumes.

I adore these perfumes. So much so, I can’t decide which is the most delicious..and there are more I must try! Night sail is a favourite, fresh and playful but sensuous - I’ve received so many compliments wearing it. Gueldres is super sexy and Barista is like being enveloped in a gentle hug! I also bought a tester pack as a gift as they are just so lovely, beautifully packaged, and a little goes a long way. Perfection!

Each fragrance evokes different reactions and memories. Particularly liked the sample of 3 which helped me choose my favourite - Barista at the moment. Impressive packaging and prompt delivery helped out when I was buying a last minute gift.

After buying the sample box for my sister for Christmas, and hearing her rave about them, I had a sneaky smell myself - and to my surprise, 2 out of 3 of them, I would most definitely wear. Barista and Cucumber Snap being my absolute faves, I will order (or get others to order) for my birthday. Lasts forever, comments from others are complimentary and according to my sister, it comes in beautiful but simple packaging. Woohoo!!

I finally found my scent!

I have tried lots of perfumes over the years but never found “the one”, until now. Night Sail is somehow so me that I can’t imagine wearing anything else. It works really well for the evening but also as a little spritz in the day, a little goes a long way and lasts for ages. I can’t stop using it, it’s such a romantic fragrance and totally unique; just like me.

I have been wearing Barista as aftershave ever since buying it for my girlfriend. I kept stealing it so had to get my own. It’s a truly unisex scent that’s not overpowering and I’ve had lots of compliments.

Every time I wear a VYVfragrance, I get asked what I'm wearing by my friends! Love the scents, the sustainable and recyclable packaging and the fact this is a family-run business. Artisanal perfume at its finest!

I really love these perfumes. So unique, lovely but not overpowering. I am wearing Gueldres at the moment very sensual but Night Sail is another of my favourites.

Incredible natural and organic fragrances with real staying power. The team at vyv fragrance have an incredible eye (and nose) for detail, beautifully packaged the whole experience was really special.

Brilliantly crafted fragrance - I initially bought Night Sail for the name, not knowing what to expect from totally natural perfume, mass produced ones can make me sneeze. Night Sail is a delight, layers of scent take you on a sensual guided journey! Out and about people have commented on how amazing I smell but it makes me feel good anytime, being a home worker, a spray here and there gets me through difficult days at the desk . Looking forward to trying more of the sisters creations.

I bought three samples and thought I would share the differences, for me: Night Sail - smells like a forest; soothing and rich; like being wrapped in a fur! It's smoky - reminds me of Clan aromatic tobacco (which I loved the smell of). Barista - I dont smell the coffee at first, but it comes later. This is very green - like a post rain garden; leafy - maybe geranium, with a touch of lemon balm. I thinks this one's a daytime perfume, very energising. Titled Favourites - very fresh too; again leafy/garden, but lighter than Barista - makes me think of lying on a lawn in the summer sun. All are long lasting seductive perfumes :)
