Aftelier Natural Body Oil & Hair Elixir Review

Aftelier Body Oil & Hair Elixirs are a multi-purpose product that have been in my routine for a while now. Hair oils have been in my life since childhood. They’ve been kind to my thick, course hair. Now we have a body and hair oil created by a perfumer…and I’m in heaven. Aftelier Body Oil & Hair Elixirs smell amazing.

The base is jojoba and fractioned coconut which my hair has always loved (and a common base for many oil-based perfumes).

Aftelier Chocolate Saffron

Chocolate & Saffron – You have to shake this product to mix the scent. It’s like having the world’s most primitive lava lamp in your hands. The fragrance is one for gourmand lovers. It’s a delicious saffron cocoa. I want to eat it. When layered under your favorite perfumes, it magically makes everything more scrumptious.

Aftelier Pear Fir and Coffee

Pear, Fir & Coffee – There are many natural body oils and hair products on the market. Many are wonderful. But, what I find is that with the Aftelier line is that you are getting a little more because there is a perfumer behind these. Lots of thought goes into the fragrance. This one is so wonderful because it is unusual. It’s a combo that only a person that knows fragrance could come up with. It’s what my husband calls “peanut butter and sliced apples” but I get much more. It’s a nutty fir with a fruity “lift” from freshly sliced, juicy pears. Complex and interesting. It’s one of my favorite fragrances for fall.

Aftelier Ancient Resins

Ancient Resins – You can read a full review here. I absolutely love it. Totally worth the price, can’t recommend it enough. Use it as a body oil, use it as a hair elixir, use it as a perfume.

Packaging – It’s a glass bottle with a pump. I love the packaging. It’s well-made and always pumps out the right amount of product for me. I find that a little of this stuff goes far.

How I use it & My Experience – As a body moisturizer, this product moisturizes while feeling rather lightweight for an oil. The scent will linger very closely to the skin. I use the oil mainly on my hair. I apply a small amount when wet and a small amount when dry to flatten fly-aways. People often ask me what do I do to get my hair so straight or how I keep it so frizz-free in the humidity and I often feel they are disappointed with my answer. I seriously let my hair air dry and I use Aftelier oils on wet and dry hair. That’s really it.

I can’t recommend these enough to people that love body oils or hair oils. The formula is awesome and they’re some of the best scented ones that you can buy. I find that the scent lingers for about 3-4 hours very closely to the skin or hair.

These retail for $50 at Aftelier. I find that they will last FOREVER if you use it as a hair oil.

  1. I tried the Ancient Resins and really liked it. The fragrance didn’t last very long on my skin. I really wanted it for my hair but the scent didn’t linger much there either. I’m jealous that you get a few hours out of them. I’m still tempted to buy it because it works well and I do enjoy the fragrance while it lasts.

    1. I do slather it on. I’m one of those people that likes to feel greasy. My husband has commented on the smell of my hair before many hours after I applied (and after I’ve forgotten about it).

      I really wish Aftelier would make Ancient Resins a perfume or a solid perfume. The scent is lovely and I’m sure the concentration of natural perfume oils is much lower in a body product like this.

  2. Simply marvelous Victoria — I am doubly grateful to you! Not only for this terrific review here, but it was you who originally suggested using my body oils for hair, and you were completely right!
