The inspiration for this 100% botanical perfume is the ancient goddess of spring, Persephone. We have carefully captured the essence of the season in this fragrance, with notes of blossoms, fresh green leaves, and the refreshing aroma of rain. As you indulge in this fragrance, you'll embark on a sensory journey, beginning with bursts of jasmine, violet, and pomegranate, and then gently transitioning into a honeyed floral scent with soft, powdery notes. This fragrance is complex and layered, offering a truly nuanced olfactory experience.

Longevity: 5 hours

Bottle Return

The beauty industry contributes significantly to the global plastic waste crisis, with staggering statistics highlighting its environmental impact. According to a report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the beauty industry produces over 120 billion units of packaging annually. Shockingly, the majority of these packages end up in landfills or oceans, with only a fraction being recycled. Moreover, a study by Zero Waste Europe reveals that plastic packaging accounts for nearly 70% of total plastic waste generated by the beauty sector. This excessive reliance on plastic packaging not only contributes to pollution but also perpetuates the cycle of single-use plastics, exacerbating environmental degradation and harming marine life.

As a product-based business, it is our responsibility to do what we can to prevent waste and harm to the planet. One of the ways we can lower our impact is to offer a bottle return program to our customers. At Cocoon, we opt for glass packaging for our products due to its sustainability compared to plastic. Glass remains inert and impermeable, releasing no harmful chemicals when exposed to heat or sunlight and it is easily sanitized for reuse without degradation. This is why we are able to offer a packaging return program that allows us to repurchase bottles from our customers in order to  sanitize and reuse them. Additionally, we collect pumps and send them to a third party recycling company that specializes in cosmetics.  Our goal is to be as circular as possible.

How it works:

Bottles and pumps can be returned to our two locations in Kitchener (Store and Spa) as well as participating retailers:

Ecowell - Mount Forest, Ontario

Truth Beauty Co - Waterloo, Ontario

We will also provide a mailing label if you have 10 or more bottles to send us. Please contact us at to arrange a return.

This seems well-crafted but I did not like the notes at all. More pomegranate than floral.

Fragrance short-lived

Pleasant fragrance, but does not last! I do love it's 'organic' scent however, and would consider purchasing if it would just last longer. I also think it could use more floral notes.


Cocoon Apothecary

Due to the organic nature, this scent will dissipate faster than synthetics. We appreciate your feedback regarding our Persephone 100% Botanical Eau de Parfum.

My husband doesn't sneeze anymore

Love this botanical perfume everything about it is wonderful .Lovely perfume to have that is natural and that elevates my spirits.

Not my scent but lovely if you like floral

Scent is really subjective! I personally am not a huge fan of the scent but I do like that it is subtle. I did try it on and wore it after about two hours of walking outside it faded. I still haven’t found a scent that suits me but I will keep looking.

Got the sample a couple times to decide if I really wanted to buy the full size. So glad I went for it. Pricy but I think it's worth it. Love it now (summer) but it will be perfect for fall!

Ok just not for me.

The scent was too floral for me but was ok. The scent does not stay on long, fades fairly quickly.

In the league of Jean Patou Joy

This is a superb perfume. Truly amazing to find something in the league of a classic Jean Patou fragrance.

The only perfume I can wear.

I love this product. I cannot stand perfume on myself or others. My husband got this for me for Christmas two years ago and I was worried it might be too powerful but it is subtle an no harsh attack on my senses. It's light and great for sensitive skin.

Absolute ethereal perfection

You know how scent evokes memories This perfume captures everything, right from the first note: an eclectic store that sold the best silver jewelry in Uptown Waterloo in the 90s, the music of the Cure, my friend Taisha, a memory of watching the first fireflies on a warm night in June, a romantic walk in the moonlight, and true love.

Loved it! Will save my pennies and buy a bottle when weather is warmer. Don't want it to freeze in delivery!

Canada Canada

Very well made perfume

The perfume is a very high quality product that has a pleasing aroma with none of the sharp, alcohol notes that you can find in some perfumes. The scent was just a little bit on the sweet/floral side for my tastes but that is just a personal preference. I am very happy with the quality of this product and, if they release a new scent, will absolutely try it.

Too sweet for me

I tried it many times as I really wanted to wear a natural perfume, but it's too sweet for me. It's very feminine but it reminds me of my grandmother's perfume.

Lovely scent

Very pretty fragrance but doesn’t seem to last very long

We are pleased you like the fragrance! Natural perfume has a shorter longevity than synthetic perfume. Our Persephone 100% Botanical Eau de Parfum longevity is 5 hours. Have a great day! Christine

Very good quality

Love the transparency of the brand and the fact that it is composed of natural ingredients. Long lasting product - way more than 5 hours. On my skin, it lasted at least 12 hours. Will not buy again because too floral for me - I usually only wear hesperidia - but does not cause me any headaches. Will definitely buy any hesperidia perfume from the brand should they develop such product.
