Beccah Posted December 5, 2017 Share Posted December 5, 2017 Time Travel: 1942 The advent of World War II brought unprecedented change to the lives of women throughout the Western world, and specifically a more functional attitude in fashion. Trousers became an article of everyday wear for many women, and perfume houses began incorporating elements into women’s scents which were more traditionally associated with men’s fragrance, such as what became known as the “leather-chypre”, (an olfactory shove that signified the need of women to "show some spine"). In this era a woman had to carefully balance her core feminine values with the demands of the war-torn world to toughen up in times of sacrifice, and we salute both the beauty and the strength of their lives with a classically complex blending of numerous florals, spices and resins upon a base of animalic musk and suede chypre. Beautifully sophisticated and appropriate for both daily demands and nightly amusements...a woman’s work is never done! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ MAGICKAL MEANINGS OF INGREDIENTS: IRIS ~ Friendship, faith, wisdom, valor and promise; purification, resurrection.HYACINTH ~ Attracts love and luck; protection, playfulness, joy,relieves grief, eases childbirth.
