Gaspingly beautiful and filled with jasmine, patchouli, red musk, oude, and a very playful drop of lemon zest. Taj Mahal celebrates the deep enduring love with unabashedly floral and resinous ways but with a true earth edge to it. Long lasting and endlessly fascinating.
Tea With Mr. Rosedale
The most lovely jasmine tea, cream, and a sandalwood tray which was guaranteed to release the aroma of love.
The Arrow of Love
Sandalwood, sweet oude, golden amber, a touch of mint (the leaves not the blossoms).
The Creative Draught*
100% Natural. Clary sage is a calming part of it, bergamot and other citrus essences send the front part of your brain to the attention state, finally it is all given a booster rocket with a bit of rose geranium and thyme and the merest smear of myrtle.
The Fruits of Heaven
With the fragrances of distilled fruit mixed with the base of crystalline musk. Sharp and sexy played with muak and lime pulp (which is very fresh). A drop of yuzu and a kiss of a second peppery musk. The antidote to the winter doldrums.
The Hairy Star
Sparkling sharp musk nips along with a hint of lavender and a dollop of grapefruit zest. complex and beautiful. You will relish it.
The High Born Damsel
There isn't anything more refreshing and tingling good than a dark chocolate mint. Uplifting and satisfying.
I just had to recreate the smell of a chocolate covered cherry. I put a good glob of marzipan in the center as well which gives the taste of it all a slight kick and takes it out of the realm of a mundane chocolate covered cherry and shoots it into the high place of a truly inspired chocolate covered cherry.
A creamy floral arrangement including the sweetest tuberose, honeysuckle, and a drop of gardenia then all brought together with a delightful infusion of sandalwood and a tiny amount of cedar. Strong and long lasting. I think of it as a tremendous bouquet in a sandalwood vase. Striking.
The Knot Ring
Musk and lime, a small amount of salt and a drop of clary sage for a safe and serene sleep.
The Queen Of Love And Beauty
Two kinds of Sandalwood (Indian and Australian) and clear pomegranate musk dance with sweet amber and such a light amount of lavender that you won't know it's there...it's just to knit the ingredients together and give them harmony.
The Romance of the Bees
My absolute favorite from the local candy maker Ester Price. I love these, love them. Thank goodness everyone else goes for the glitzy looking ones and leaves these little lumpy masterpieces alone for MEEEEE!" When questioned about this scent, Fabienne provided a link to the candies that prompted this.
Grey musk starts off as a base, with clementine as the top note and artemesia in the middle (actually it's an infusion of artemesia so it won't be too strong and just provide a bit of unsweet background. I add a bit of perfumy fig (not a brown fig accord, this one is very perfumy) and voila, you have a beautiful strong and lovely blend which is somehow dignified and sexy at the same time.
The Velvet Riding Habit
A simple and alluring blend of the most beautiful of rose and the most sexy of leather.
The slightest kiss of clove mingles with honeyed cakes but on the light note of virtue. Nothing strong or harsh or heavy about this. Beautiful enough to attract unicorns.
The Wickedest Idea of All
Wintergreen and butter, most bitter chocolate enrobed in vanilla bark with the smallest whiff of gum in there. When you smell it, you will think,"Oh, my!" Very gourmandy.
The 13th Love Note
Red musk, patchouli, a classic blend of several resins (known as a shamama), a bit of African Musk.
Trim: Frilly Garters
FFFFrilly, with a tang like the metal of the garter, and a whipped up confection of the lace on these suspendies. A very mellow apricot and a spicy buttery oil are what starts this off in an unusual way, followed by just the tiniest dot of "green" smell, and a very small amount of cocoa "liquor".
Violets, winter blooming witch hazel, a hyacinth, primrose, and a sprig of thyme taken from the kitchen windowsill so it's not just all sweet flowers, there is a hint of "gravitas" to this bouquet.
Chocolate, bacon, and roses. If there is more to Valentines, it doesn't count. I made this as a jest, but it really smells good! Silly, gourmandy pleasure.
Venus and Mars
Imagine a post coital repose of woody black pepper paired with cheeky pink peppercorns, and gloss of green musk, a shot of hot sticky jasmine, and the barding over of thick golden amber.
Venus of Willendorf
100% Natural. A perfectly beautiful and ladylike blend of palmarosa and clementine with a hint of champagne! If ever a natural perfume was seductive, this one is it. Fruity yet with a hint of booze and a hint of wood.
Victoria and Albert
The rose of England, the resins of India, with the woods of Germany to equal a sexy and yet happily conventional perfume which magically has the power to set your heart racing in the properest and least controversial of ways!
Cloudberries, a hint of her leathern firkin, a bit of fig, hawthorn, and a light but anchoring musk make this a beautiful and strong lovely fragrance.
Virginia Oldoini, Countess of Castiglione
A fabulous Blue Lilac accord which smells just like the real thing, I have used that as a base to the blend. Then I add a touch of white hawthorne, it's an innocent sort of an accord but it packs quite a sexy punch, finally I have added three white musks which are very soft, pleasantly animalic, curiosity inducing, and just lovely.
The straight essence of a rich uncomplicated but highly refined tea combined with the ineffable splendor of a simple green and refreshing heartnote.
A shot of the same divine osmanthus I used for Temptation BUT there is a clever use of nicotiana flower (a popular staple in perfumery and not toxic at all) and a very small note which smells like wet stone which I find unexpected and captivating. Perfumy.
William and Matilde
Chypre, essence of pollen, sage. A beautiful and sophisticated and dry but very very alluring blend.
High centered blood red hybrid teas, tiny baby pink polyanthas, stately grandifloras (yellow), English roses with quatrefoil cups and subtle apricot color.
Decants=8x35mm vials, Minis=2.3dram bottles and hold the same amount of oil as 3 vials. Full sized bottles are stocked at Possets Perfume. As limited edition collections, these scents will be allowed to sell out.
