Archive: Metamorphosis


Recommended Posts



The English inventor and watchmaker John Nevil Maskelyne was also a magician who originated the art of Levitation as well as a trick known as Metamorphosis, made further famous by the most sensational escape artist of all time - Harry Houdini. The illusion involves the trading of places between the magician and his assistant, seeming to vanish in thin air and then reappearing on the other side of the stage. Variations often have involved an element of peril such as water tanks, locks and chains, but our ode to this bit of magical history is simply a celebration of a welcome metamorphosis in nature...the changing of Winter into Spring. Spring flowers of Magnolia & Peony are melded with a warm and delicate vanilla sugar and topped with the summery promise of ripe peaches and rich cream.


PEONY ~ Happy life, happy marriage.
MAGNOLIA ~ Nobility. Psychic enhancer; inspires peace and harmony; fidelity.
PEACH ~ Love. Promotes fertility, happiness, and abundance. A symbol of marriage. Longevity, wishes granted.
VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing.
CREAM ~ Nurturing, soothing, eases troubled relationships. Goddess energy.
SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing, wishes granted.

The Golden Age of Magic collection, April 2013


The Golden Age of Magic

This set of fragrances pays homage to the golden age of the stage magicians, which took place during the epoque of the Gilded Age right up to the advent of the Roaring Twenties (roughly between 1880 and 1920); when the creations of new technology were so astounding they indeed seemed indistinguishable from magic and its practitioners were among the first to take advantage of the harnessing of electricity, projection of images, and transmission of radio waves to enhance their performances and amaze audiences worldwide.

To give these potions a further mesmerizing aura, we have included a swirl of highest quality cosmetic grade glitter in each bottle, and the labels for this set feature depictions of the actual magicians and/or their vintage advertising artwork.
