Everything Pause embodies, from the rich floral scent profile to the vibrant bottle design reflects our joint mission; to bring confidence and sophistication to the perimenopausal stage of womanhood.
When I started to experience perimenopausal symptoms in my late thirties such as night sweats and an irregular period I was taken completely by surprise. Perimenopause was not even on my radar, nor did I know much at all about this reverse puberty that women go through, typically in the 5-12 year lead up into Menopause. Saddened and a little outraged by the stigma and shame attached to this life phase and the total lack of conversation around it, I wondered if there role in which scent could play and within that, if Abel could be a vessel for shining a light on this journey. The idea of attaching something beautiful like scent, to such a loaded emotional journey just felt right.
When I reached out to French perfumer Dr Fanny Grau to discuss the idea and found out that she was also experiencing symptoms such insomnia and hormones in overdrive without knowing much at all about what it meant, I realise that there was a time and place for this scent.
Everything Pause embodies, from the rich floral scent profile to the vibrant bottle design reflects our joint mission; to bring confidence and sophistication to this stage of womanhood. We chose ingredients for their therapeutic value as much as their gorgeous scent profile.

why modern, natural fragrance
We choose natural ingredients for their olfactory beauty and therapeutic, mood-enhancing qualities. Alongside these positive reasons for choosing natural, plant-derived ingredients, there's tangible information as to why we don't use synthetic fragrance molecules derived from fossil fuels. This nonrenewable resource pollutes water and air and has links to several health concerns.learn more
