Archive: Elementary, Chapter 4


Recommended Posts



The fourth edition of one of our most popular male fragrances!


Since 2004 we've been honoring our very favorite detective, Sherlock Holmes, with a scented interpretation of this enduring literary creation. All versions are based on the same concept and core ingredients, but each variant is unique. This year's brew features a woody base of Oak resinoid, pine and woodsmoke, with accents of suede and tobacco, the warmth of steeped white tea laced with a touch of brandy, a clean breath of Asian paperwhites, and a special 7% dilution of buchu EO, sourced directly from the Cedarberg Mountains of South Africa. We finish it with a dusting of dry manly spice, and the resulting acclaim when you wear it...why, it's Elementary, my dear!


PAPERWHITES (NARCISSUS) ~ Egotism, formality, sweetness.

OAK RESINOID ~ A wood of masculine and projective energy. It symbolizes endurance, triumph, strength, power, prosperity, and heroism.

PINE ~ Fertility, purification, strength, rejuvenation, calming and soothing, healing, protection, money, long life.

WOODSMOKE ~ In addition to the attributes of whatever is being burned (resins, woods, etc), smoke is for cleansing, purification, renewal, consecration, concealment and celebration.

SUEDE ~ The musky scent of leather inspires feelings of lust, personal power, and provides a hint of danger.

TEA ~ Invigorating, refreshing, mentally and physically uplifting, lust. Riches, courage, strength.

BRANDY (FERMENTED ALCOHOLS: WINE, BEER, HARD LIQUOR, ETC) ~ Intoxicant, used as an offering or appeasement for Gods, used in love spells, and celebratory spells.

SPICE ~ Luck, health, prosperity, money.

BUCHU ~ The indigenous people first introduced buchu to the European settlers at the Cape in South Africa. The use of the plant subsequently spread to Europe and America where it was used extensively as a medicine. In 1821 buchu was included in the British Pharmacopoeia.
