Natural Parfum Oils
MELIS was started in 2018 with a debut collection of six parfum oils dedicated to the Founder’s late and dear friend Olivia who epitomised style, elegance, depth of character, love and pure beauty. Her passing inspired the birth of MELIS and its sophisticated, approachable and spirited collection of concentrated parfum oils and pure attars.

The original parfum oils were followed by two new fragrances, inspired by Australia’s ancient land, its wisdom and gifts of wild native ingredients including quandong and wattle seed and Australian grown sandalwood, palmarosa, peppermint and citrus.
Infused with the potent power of native Australian botanicals, Spiritus and Terra both bestow beautifully fragrant, long-lasting parfum for both men and women with complexity and a proud sense of place.

Meet the Artist ~
Our NATIVUS packaging features the exquisite oil paintings of one of Australia’s foremost still-life floral artists, Meryl Bell. Meryl’s desire was to bring greater awareness and appreciation of Australia’s natural environment and the need to conserve it, by capturing and sharing its unique beauty with the world. Meryl’s paintings are featured in notable private collections around the world and we share the sense of profound joy she found in Nature, that is so evident in the beautiful art she created.
Three for Honey, 1997, oil on canvas
“Many Australian artists have made us visually aware of the vastness of landscape, the light and colours of the country, but there are also many surprises and delights to be found in the intricate structure of plants and their vibrant colouring. If my paintings make people stop for a moment to look, enjoy and wonder then I have succeeded.”
