December's Aromatic Muse Perfume, nestled in an ornate brass locket
A Spellbinding Perfume Balm from the Witch's Lair
Sharp, Herbal, Hypnotic
Witch's Talisman is a bewitching and slightly hypnotic herbal composition inspired by the scent of walking into a witch's bubbling apothecary; oohh it smells soo good in here....
Hanging dried mugwort, mints, heather & herbs. The shelves are layered with drying tree barks and medicinal blossoms, while potions simmer and distill in their various vessels. The Green-Witch anoints her healing objects with charged unguents and she pauses every so often to taste-test her brewing spiced treacle. Mysterious tangled roots rest in baskets and jars are everywhere.
Two different Lavenders and two different Artemisias laced with Angelica and Vetiver add to the alchemy of this perfume by carrying the top notes into the heart notes as the perfume unfolds.
Layers of entrancing Clary Sage, Blue Cypress, Myrtle, Spikenard, and several more secret magical botanicals hold a potent aromatic invocation.
As the herbals wither and fade, the warmth of precious, costly Agarwood emerges, lingering in a creamy base of Peru Balsam and a soft woods & spice base note accord.
Adorning each perfume locket is a product card beautifully dressed with custom artwork by the one and only Meekah Sage of Zebra's and Butterflies. It is a visionary sketch of a now full color masterpiece created for my perfume. Her work is utterly enchanted and I'm blessed to collaborate with her.
While this locket isn't available without membership, I do have new lockets listed in the shop that I'm quite smitten with. Choose from Ginger~Tuberose or Roses & Cocoa.
In addition, a recent artistic collaboration between my perfume works and the photography of Marlaina Donato has brought new levels of joy and presentation to my creative endeavors. What a deep joy it is to weave beauty and pleasure medicine with other wise women like Marlaina and Meekah.
Consider including them in your Yule gifts and personal favorite sources for artistic empowerment and healing arts.
