Black Cat Posted July 25, 2015 Share Posted July 25, 2015 Jennifer's Six of Cups Ripe strawberries, sweet heavy cream, a dash of rich vanilla, and a pinch of sugar. Sweet and creamy and joyful! STRAWBERRY ~ Attraction, friendship, draws fortunate circumstances in all areas of your life. MILK/BUTTER/CREAM ~ Nurturing, soothing, eases troubled relationships. Goddess energy. VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing. SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing, wishes granted. This is so luscious!! Here is what I wrote to Mara: "While I am enjoying One True Love, I'd like a love potion with a slightly different slant.. . I'd like something to evoke a chivalric, generous, not necessarily romantic (but it's OK if it goes that way!) protective and loving response. This is actually the response I get from wearing Cuddle Bunny (which I'd love to pair it with). In Tarot terms, I'm thinking of the 6 of Cups in the Rider-Waite deck... open-hearted joyful innocence, child-like (but not childish, as per Cuddle Bunny!). I'd like to be able to come to people from that place (as opposed to paranoid, guarded, cynical, etc) and be met with a trustworthy responseI'm also desperately craving a strawberry scent. The problem I have with most strawberry scents is that (to my nose, anyway) they tend to smell like strawberry flavored candy, or strawberry jam, rather than the fruit. I'm longing for a strawberries and cream combo, and it seemed as if those notes might work magically as well." As far as the scent goes, this is home run! In the vial, the strawberry is most prominent -- juicy and ripe. When I put it on, though, the cream just blooms. It's soft, pink, creamy sweet goodness -- almost like strawberry ice cream! I had originally planned to do this in the spring, and I think I'm going to tuck it away for bit, because I have a hunch that if it's this delightful now, it's going to be gorgeous when it's aged a few months, and it's a bit sweet for the summer. I was hoping it might also work as a cold weather scent, and I think it might be a perfect sleep comfort scent when we get into the long dark nights. As for the intent... I'll have to report back on that one! But it has a lovely innocent air to it, as well as something indescribably comforting, and I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you Mara! PS. I mentioned 6 of cups in the email, but Mara was the one who had the brilliant idea to use it as the name. So perfect!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
