  2. Whenever I order from the temp site I get 2 emails one from Etsy (transaction@etsy) with the items I ordered and order number, and the second is from Mara’s Etsy (conversation@mail.etsy) account saying my package is being made, but the invoice link doesn’t work. I was notified by another member on another forum that the link shows you when your package will be shipped out. I’ve tried to open the link on several browsers, with my other two links as well, and it says “Ops page not found”. I’m not sure if my e-mail being different from the one on my Etsy account (on the actual site) has something to do with it... Any information on why this is happening and who to contact would be awesome. 🙏🏾 Thank you.
  3. I got my package a day early I’m too pumped. I skipped lecture because I knew it would come too! I feel like I can move on with life now lmao my week has been made!

    Mangelwurzel

    This is the first time (to my recollection) that I've tried a scent with an earth note, and I have to say I am liking it a lot more than I expected. It's funny, but the way the dragon's blood, patch and myrrh combines with the pumpkin puts me more in mind of richly spiced apples than pumpkins. There's a bit of a wicked edge to it... more like Snow White's poisoned apple than a sweet treat. It's really good, and definitely different. It feels like it's perfect for a late day or night time autumnal event or party.
  6. I never tried Allumette, so I can't make a comparison, but I love the dark vanilla smokiness of this one. The smoke element is really forward on me, but (at least to my nose) that's what makes it different and more compelling.

    Elume w/ Perfect Match

    I know I tried Allumette, but it was so long ago, I don't really remember it, so I won't make a comparison. On me, this is a beautiful vanilla sandalwood, with just a hint of smokiness. It's soft and understated, but has good longevity. I've worn it to work for the last 3 days, and everybody wants to be my best friend.
  8. Compromising position is a win win blend. It's a garantee giving me hit every time I wear it. The scent hides cops pretty good. At first right after you spray it-the smell is a bit weird to me but nothing like cheesy(or whatever I associate with cops). Then later, it turns into light vanilla scent with some spicies. I wear it everywhere and for me nothing wrong with that.
  9. The perfect way to take it easy… New Orleans is a place unlike any the world over: grandly cosmopolitan, tenaciously enduring, with a bounty of hospitality and good-time gusto for visitors and natives alike. We pay tribute to the city's iconic status with this perfumed interpretation of the traditional colors of Mardi Gras – purple, green and gold - which gives a whole new meaning to that famous sobriquet, in spray form so you can create a cloud of ease wherever you go. With comforting varieties of lavender (resinous and EO types), calming chamomile, and soothing clary sage and basil, this is a lavender herbal fragrance with a powdery flowery aura, both refreshing and relaxing. For further comfort and joy we've added a dose of our exclusive TEDDY POTION BB pheromone blend, which encourages rapt attention and camaraderie between men, and a comforting, placating and protective feeling in women. A fab unisex blend! LAVENDER ~ Soothes/ restores body and mind. Arouses sexual desire in men, loyalty, purification, protection, healing. Third eye chakra, spiritually uplifting. BASIL ~ Creates empathy between couples; love, fidelity. Invigorates, protection. Mends quarrels. CHAMOMILE ~ Prosperity, calming & soothing. Love, peace, meditation. CLARY ~ Enhances visions.

  10. Because we know you're crazy for cupcakes, we've created another fabulous gourmand floral especially for Spring! Our most deliriously delicious blend of vanilla cake accords: layer cake, poundcake, and birthday cake, topped with a scrumptious swirl of cotton candy buttercream frosting. We've added just a touch of Nepalese amber for depth and decorated it with a beautiful sweet pea, the flower which expresses the most delicate kind of pleasure in its lovely fragrance. SWEET PEA ~ Lasting pleasure, blissfulness, youthful attraction, friendship, chastity, courage, strength. VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing. BUTTER/CREAM ~ Nurturing, soothing, eases troubled relationships. Goddess energy. BROWN & PINK SUGARS ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing, wishes granted. AMBER ~ Fertility, creativity, love, luck, riches. Created by: Mara Fox Description: Julie (luna65) Label art: February 2014 You know the whole cupcake craze? You think it was some gourmet pastry chef or food writer who started it? Here’s the truth: it was the fairies. That’s right ,the Fae - why do you think they call them fairy cakes? The fairies love sweets, especially baked goods, and if you didn’t remind them to eat some vegetables once in a while, they'd rot their wee teeth with all the sugar they consume! But being so isolated in the Hollow Hills and all, with only a few humans ever seduced to come and dwell underneath, well, their culinary skills turn a mite stale. The Queen was most upset by this turn of events and so she sent some of her trusted advisors topside to find out if the mortals could do any better than her brownie cooks. I caught a couple pixies rummaging in the kitchen of my bakery one night and what do you think? They had combed through all my cookbooks and were testing my best recipes right there! “The nerve!” I cried, not particularly fussed that magical beings were sifting and sorting and mixing and pouring ingredients and generally making a mess of things until…I tasted one of the finished cupcakes, just plain right out of the oven. Wow. Even now, words cannot describe the sheer joy I experienced biting into that cupcake. And it was just your average vanilla cupcake, you know? None of these fancy newfangled trendy favors or anything, just vanilla. But vanilla which was so warm and light yet complex, with echoes of the bean ripening in the sun, the flower blooming full to reveal its secret bounty…I could smell and taste the place from where it has come, all in that one bite. “So, because I ate one of your cupcakes that means I have to come with you, right?” I asked. The pixies talked among themselves for a time, but their speech sounded like tiny bells to my mundane ears. They shook their heads in unison, and made off with several trays full of the same vanilla cupcakes of which I had tasted. Curious, I decided to make up a batch myself, trying to make sense of their tiny notations in my cookbooks, and because the utensils had been magicked by their very presence, those were the best cupcakes I’d ever created. So yeah, it was me…sorta. I’ve been written up in all the food magazines, interviewed on talk shows, received loads of publicity. I can barely keep up with the demand. But every so often a pixie appears and chatters at me in ringing tones, and I know it’s time to bake another large batch for the Fair Folk, to whom no one would ever believe I owe my amazing success. (You’re welcome, by the way.)

    Archive: Papal Purple

    That hue between red and blue known as purple has a fascinating history – it has long-been associated with royalty, given its' rarity and expense, but also symbolic of piety, adopted by the powerful "princes" of the Catholic Church, those considered the monarchs of their order. From mentions in the Bible and Greek epic poetry to the wardrobe of ancient Roman emperors to its fabulous modern-day expressions, love it or leave it but you simply can't ignore it. Purple is a shade to be reckoned with, and we acknowledge its power and prestige with a shower of wisteria blossoms framed by powdery frankincense, woodsmoke, and dry vanilla layered upon a smooth sweet musk. To ensure you will reign in any situation we have enhanced this fragrance with our exclusive pheromone blend HEART & SOUL, a social mix which strives to help ladies to really connect and resonate with people - whether it be with their loved ones, or just good friends. WISTERIA ~ Welcoming of new person into your life. Youth, eloquence. FRANKINCENSE ~ Purification, consecration, protection, exorcism. Associated with silver and the moon. VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing. MUSK ~ Self confidence and strength, sexual attractant, heightens passions and arousal.

It is also the foremost mode of communication from this world to the realm of spirits and the gods. Created by: Mara Fox Description: Julie (luna65) Label art: February 2014

Created by: Mara Fox Description: Julie (luna65) Label art: February 2014 from Hurricanes and Hoodoo: a Savannah Finch adventure by Julian Lune The heat of the city seemed a living thing, a caress lingering and lascivious as I moved through the streets of the French Quarter – my trip down Toulouse was riotous with the sound of barkers and street vendors and music spilling out of bars and clubs and redolent with the scents of the decadent cuisine always on offer in the Crescent City. I was on my way to meet famed stage magician Nicholas Flambe, who wasn’t a native, mind you, but he might as well have been, looking cool and elegant in a seersucker suit, sipping a Vieux Carre at an outdoor café at two o’clock in the afternoon. “Found your brother yet?” I asked without greeting. We were long-acquainted and it was well-known to all who would make it their business why Nicholas had appeared in their midst. Sebastian Flambe was equally adept at the occluded arts, but his specialty was more arcane. He told fortunes and conversed with spirits, but he picked his own clients. It was said he was working on a tarot to rival the Thoth and it had taken him a year to paint each suit thus far. The brothers were each uniquely handsome: both tall and dark, but while Nicholas’ eyes shimmered like the aquamarine seaglass one sometimes found on the beach after a storm, Sebastian had eyes like amber buried in the strata, centuries-long, until some enterprising paleontologist dug it up and discovered whatever piece of deep time it contained. “I know he’s here,” came the answer. “I can smell him all over the Quarter.” Nicholas never liked to let Sebastian out of his sight for too long, the other had a habit of getting into trouble with those familiar vices of wine, women, and other, more addictive pastimes. “Well sniff no more, dear boy, I saw him just last night.” Nicholas leapt to his shiny leather-shod feet and exclaimed, “Why didn’t you say so, damn you! What do you think I’m paying you for?!” “For a good time, one imagines, but c’mon then, we’ll visit the place now.” We strolled – for one never hurries in the Quarter, you see, it appears suspicious – to Dauphine Street and one particular establishment: part hoodoo shop, part café, and thoroughly spooky. The place was named after the owner – Nola – and she lounged indolently in the doorway to observe our approach, her dusky skin glowing with the afternoon’s humidity. She was truly lovely, I could see why Sebastian had sought her company. “Ah, I am honored indeed, The Great Flambe has seen fit to visit my humble shoppe,” she drawled, which imbued the statement with as mush irreverence as you might well imagine, much in the same way one louches a glass of absinthe with spring water. “Sebastian Flambe was here last night, I saw you with him, do you know where he is now?” “Even if I did know, Miz Finch,” she said, turning into the cooler recesses of her curio collection, “why would I break Sebastian’s confidence and tell either of you?” I’d never met Nola prior to that moment, but it didn’t surprise me that she knew who I was – any conjure woman worth her goofer dust pays attention to her surroundings at all times. Nicholas bustled in before me, all officious showiness. “Look here, er, um –“ “You may refer to me as Nola.” “- Nola, please. My brother is known for running away from the family, and always gets himself into a scrape which I then have to rescue him from. I’m attempting expedience before things get too awful.” “Sebastian is his own man, big brother Nicholas – or do you prefer your nickname, eh?” I snickered. Nicholas was also known as “Tricky Nicky” to those who knew him, or wanted to know him better. He wasn’t looking at me but I could tell from the set of his shoulders he was annoyed. “Savannah!” he snapped. “I’m ready to renege on your retainer if you don’t stop being obsfucatious!” “Nicky I did what you asked, I brought you a lead. It’s not my fault if you don’t know what to do with it.” Nola grinned. “Y’all want some gumbo? It’s been stewing three days now, should be tres delicieux.” She made a sort of kissing sound and winked at me. I managed to convince Nicholas that his questioning would go much better if he accepted some Big Easy hospitality and we followed her into the kitchen where she dished out big steaming bowls, along with cornbread and greens and sweet tea. But it only took a few mouthfuls of the stuff to cause him to…well, there’s no other way to describe it: he froze. “Well shut my mouth and call me Clarence!” I declared. “You done put a icing on him!” Nola shrugged, took another bite of gumbo, chewed and swallowed. “How can you endure such a person, chere? The most boring –“ “We’re not –“ “- officious –“ “ – involved.” “Savannah Finch gives her heart to no one,” I heard a voice behind me comment. It was plush and mannered, like a rococo piece of furniture you want to run your hands over to appreciate its surfaces. “Because I’ve already given it to you, Bast,” I answered, as Sebastian Flambe slid onto the seat next to mine. He flashed me his dazzling grin, as always full of mischief and the promise of pleasure. “Naughty man,” purred Nola, “you’re supposed to be sleeping.” “I’ll sleep when I’m dead,” the other replied, helping himself to my gumbo. “But likely not, the dead are such a noisy lot, you know.” “I’m hurt,” I pouted, “you slink into town without telling me?” “Because I knew Nicky would ensure you’d find me eventually.” He looked over at the still form of his sibling and clicked his tongue. “Whatever shall we do with you, brother mine?” “I say we fill him with Chartreuse, drape him in beads, and leave him on the doorstep of the Pearl,” Nola said, then giggled. Sebastian laughed as well, “Oh dearie me, he might never escape their clutches if we did that! So, my dear detective,” he continued, his tone full of affectionate mockery, “what were you planning to do with me when you found me?” “Certainly not what I’d like to do,” I replied, equally teasing. “Let’s go have a drink and you tell me whatever it is I’m supposed to tell your family to placate them, oui? Preferably a place that makes a good Bywater.” “Hardboiled to the last,” he said, leaning back in his chair. “But only if we really do dump my brother on the doorstep of the most exclusive demonic brothel in New Orleans.” “They won’t hurt him,” Nola added. “Much.” We all had a good laugh at poor Nicky’s expense.

    Archive: Esther

    The Jewish observance of Purim – celebrated in Spring – is related to the narrative in the Book of Esther, the deliverance of the Jewish people from a murderous plot devised by the grand vizier of Persia. This is a scented portrait of the beautiful and brave heroine, evocative of her storied history. Esther was selected as queen of Persia from every virgin within the boundaries of the kingdom, all of whom were given a full year of beautification before they had to appear before the king for consideration. Thus she is perfumed with the precious luxuries of myrrh and a Persian spice blend, with additional dashes of cardamom, clove and black pepper, then lightened with touches of apricot and fresh green fig and a dollop of spring honey. To further honor the feast day of Purim, the traditions of which include giving gifts of food and donating to charities, we are donating the proceeds from sales of Esther to Feeding America, the nation's leading hunger-relief charity. Their mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engaging the country in the fight to end hunger.

    It's been theorized that the tradition of Spring Cleaning dates back centuries, rituals to mark the passage of Winter to Spring, with households embarking upon a thoroughly cleaning of a domicile and everything in it. Many of these observances worldwide are tied to religious observances and feast days. When the weather turns warm and we can open the windows wide, we desire to give ourselves a fresh start for the new year. Always a fan of that which is refreshing and uplifting, our very own Le Wizard decided to capture this feeling in a bottle: a soapy-scented welcome to Spring. Nascent notes of iris blossoms twined with green leaves, pine, Hawaiian maile vine and leaf, then scrubbed with a trio of lavish soap accords, and given a gentle polish with a blend of vanilla oak and Arabian resins. IRIS ~ Friendship, faith, wisdom, valor and promise; purification, resurrection. IVY ~ Wedded love, fidelity, friendship, affection, protection, sex, divination, healing, stamina. PINE ~ Fertility, purification, strength, rejuvenation, calming and soothing, healing, protection, money, long life. VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing. OAK ~ A wood of masculine and projective energy. It symbolizes endurance, triumph, strength, power, prosperity, and heroism. Created by: John (Le Wizard) Description: Julie (luna65) Label art: February 2014

    A new love can often inspire intensity of emotion and extravagant gestures: skywriting, serenades beneath the full moon, recitations of bad poetry…well, it's the thought that counts, right? We desired to invoke the spirit of irrepressible affection with this passionately luxurious scent. A bouquet of three types of gardenia oil embodying the sweetness of newly-opened blooms, blended with tangy cassis and just a whisper of exotic nag champa in a base of rich fruity musk.

  18. Yesterday
  19. I put this on recently after not having touched it for quite a long time. It smelled sweeter than I remembered, not in a bad way, but after I put it on and it dried down, that beautiful smooth sandalwood that I was waiting for came out. Overall it's smoother than before (as to be expected with age), and still so elegant, and I loved catching whiffs of it on myself.

    Julie's Chupacabra

    This is so lovely! I am so glad I took a chance on a bottle of this one unsniffed. None of the notes are singularly overpowering, and the vanilla, tonka/oud, and licorice all come together in a soft, warm, delicious blend that just makes me want to curl up under some comfy covers and roll around enjoying it for a while. I will say I detect the licorice more than the other notes, but it's not sweet or candy like. The way the vanilla and tonka come together almost makes me think of some kind of lightly sweetened puff pastry. It's funny, and a little bit strange, but even though they're nothing alike for some reason it puts me in mind of the guava pastries I used to get at Porto's Bakery back in California. Overall, I think this is a delight and I'm really glad to have it in my LP collection. I only hope there will be a rebrew at some point, because given how much I like it and how much the mister did, I'm going to be wearing this one a lot!
  21. Life is like a box of chocolates....Valentine's chocolates, that is! You just never know what you’ll get until you penetrate the hard shell to the sweetness within. And what would Valentine’s Day be without that multi-million dollar empire which creates what we crave…CHOCOLATE! We’ve concocted the perfect calorie-free way to enjoy that heart-shaped box without the guilt, but please, don’t slather yourself in the entire bottle all at once though you will be tempted…because the trouble with truffles is that you can’t stop eating them…and those who give you a sniff might just devour you too! The absolute best assortment of chocolate truffles: a melange of rich truffle-type fudge, cocoa absolute, gooey caramel and vanilla bean blended with a light medley of nuts (peanut, hazelnut and chestnut) and topped with a sprinkling of shredded coconut. Be mine, Valentine (candy)! CHOCOLATE ~ Lightens emotions, evokes feelings of love. VANILLA BEAN ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing.

  22. Perhaps more than any other fruit, strawberries are associated with romance and Valentine’s Day, as a member of the plant family Rosaceae the connection is obvious! Strawberries bring one of the first signs of Spring, as the first fruit to ripen upon the season’s approach, and thus, as we find ourselves in the last days of Winter, the rufescent sweetness gives us hope for the blossoming of all things…especially love. A prized aphrodisiac and believed to encourage love and affection in those who share the fruit with each other, tempt your loved one with a whiff of our romantic-minded confection!

Created by: Mara Fox Description: Julie (luna65) Label art: Valentine's collection, January 2014 One of the endangered species of the Spookasem Veld is the Pongo Orangzipan. These candy-colored apes live in secluded communities which require two sources of sustenance: fresh water and almandel; which we know as the humble almond. The primates dwell within almond trees and have developed a complex society based entirely around the production of marzipan: the young harvest the almonds and shell them, and the adults, using sophisticated tools, crush the nuts into paste which they sweeten and then fashion into all manner of objects, often portraying other types of sustenance required by their diets, such as fruit and insects. But perhaps the most intriguing ritual is that of Orangzipan courtship: males spend weeks manufacturing and sculpting marzipan into intricate and ambitious designs, and prospective females will visit the male nests to decide who would make the best mate based on the intelligence and creativity of the design on display. Fathers teach their sons the basic skills of marzipan sculpture, with the hope that their progeny will develop the necessary artistic talent to attract the dominant female of their social group. The male deemed the best sculptor is awarded with a position as regent to the female head of the group, and his primary toil becomes that of producing ever more elaborate sculptures for his mate’s aesthetic pleasure and consumption.

Her gray eyes were considered evidence of this by the tribes of Slaarian, and the villagers all expected she would be initiated into the Hidden Cult of She Who Unveils The Night. The cult’s knowledge of lunar alchemy was valuable and revered. But all Selene desired was the notice of the mage who had appeared in their midst, the dark-haired one who had mystified and mesmerized them all with his acumen of ancient lore and arcane knowledge. But she knew she was not the only one who blushed to look into his dark eyes, to hear him speak in tones deep and honeyed, as he revealed the fortunes of those paying in coin, trinkets and other, more secretive, currency. She had naught to show him she was special…unless the Goddess would truly touch her. Upon the night of the Gibbous Moon, Selene made her way to the Temple, carrying a bundle of datura as offering, for to make her obsequence and ask for guidance, for notice and favor. But a difference sort of notice observed from a darkened side street. A long finger with talon-like nail pointed towards her hurrying form. “It is she! The moonchild.” A nod, from one with hair like the deepest shadows, who set off in pursuit. But the figure was quiet and subtle in movement, and Selene was unaware of the hunt. She approached the communal altar in the courtyard of the temple, the white marble pillars standing tall, veined with silver, the slab made of the same stone and already heavy with gifts for the one Selene was named for: her hewn likeness with a skein of stars for hair, crowned with a diadem of the Triple Goddess. She looked up into the impassive calm face of the deity as she laid the flowers upon the stone, her voice a faint whisper. “Mother Selene, how may I display the grace of your patronage? How may I prove your consideration to the one I desire?” Her pursuer stood just inside the gate, witnessing the petition with a smirk upon a lush mouth. The shadow stepped forward as she completed her prayer. “I have your answer, shining one,” he said, and she turned wide pale eyes to her desired one, startled. In the moonlight she appeared altogether as the appellation bestowed upon her. He held out his hand to her, and something sparkled upon his palm. “How came you to possess the sacred crystals?” she asked, her voice still a murmur, but one made hoarse with surprise. “Only –“ “Only those favored by Luna are given this gift, yes. And I have travelled, across the wastes and the seas, through the mountains and down into the valleys, through the sky and across the stars, just to bring you your inheritance.” “The stars?” she wondered. “So it is true, then, that they say you came from that realm beyond the heavens?” “I am from many places. But you, you are the living light of Luna, and I bear your treasure so that I may seek your favor.” “My favor?” Her heart felt as though it might burst forth and fly up to those stars which he spoke of, the jeweled net spread upon the fathomless dark. He came and knelt at her feet. “Touch me, so I might glow as you do, that I might pierce the heart of Mystery and reside in your lustrous embrace. And in exchange I give you back your magic.” He placed one of the crystals against her lips. She took it into her mouth and with the first hint of sweetness – a flavor so very cool and delicate – she felt herself becoming that which she had longed for, melting away into silvery shine and he gathered her up into his arms and bathed in her brilliance, his darkness melding into her light.
