Invidiana Posted June 2, 2010 Share Posted June 2, 2010 Majmua Sultana One of the most fascinating forms of perfumery is the divine "mishmash" of Majmua: a luxurious and dense blending of dozens of ingredients to create a scent fit for royalty (though now they are available to all). The creation of such a treasure is much like a well-loved fable...numerous characters intermingle and their voices - at once separate and joined - tell a wondrous tale. Like all tales, the revelation is in the telling...be adventurous and allow this mesmerizing fragrance to bloom upon your skin...a story all your own will unfold in the wearing. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: MAJMUA ~ (a blend of woods, flowers and herbs) Peaceful, soothing, spiritual. MYSORE SANDALWOOD ~ Love, exotic, sensual atmospheric; aphrodisiac. Healing, spirituality, exorcism. AMBER ~ Fertility, love, luck, riches. VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing. HONEY ~ Enticing, seductive; use to bewitch a straying or hesitant lover. Happiness, fulfillment. BOYSENBERRY ~ Healing, money attraction, protection. Dreams, wishes, luck, good fortune, deflection of negativity. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This very much reminds me of a more "golden" version of Fade to Black, which I love dearly. I'd say it's the honey, amber and vanilla that make this more golden as opposed to dark, but still wonderfully heady and delicious. Those mixed with the resins give it an almost caramelized quality, and the warm sandalwood finish adds to the sex appeal. I get just a hint of sweet-tart boysenberry rounding it out. Now I have no idea what majmua on its own smells like, but this scent as a whole is very warm and highly sensual so I imagine it definitely does contribute to those qualities. Love!
