scourger Posted January 20, 2008 Share Posted January 20, 2008 A Tribute to Mother Christmas ~ Sugared fig with sweet musk, benzoin, labdanum, and more. Magickal Properties include love, passion, wisdom, fertility, prosperity, luck, protection, divination, astral projection, purification. This one starts off with a hint of cake, with the figs keeping it moist. As it blooms and dries on the skin, it becomes this fascinating blend. I'm afraid I don't know most of the notes that are in this one, and therefore can't pick them out. It's like a house scent. Not a scent you would spray or otherwise scent your house with, but that scent which is unique to each house, and is a combination of all the people who live there, the meals that are cooked there, and that something else, which defines the character of the house apart from its family. That scent which seeps into your clothes and hair, and lingers with you long after you are done visiting. In the house of Holle, yellow cake is cooked, herbs are crushed, and animals are cared for. It's a very cosy house, where you will always be offered tea, and where any beast on four legs or two can go when they have broken bones and wounds to be healed. After several hours, this becomes a soft, sweet muskiness, which stays close to the skin and is impossibly lovely. This one is reminiscent of Portunis, but softer, sweeter, and more feminine. As for magickal properties: Despite having a killer headache, I felt safe, and reasonably happy while wearing it. (Don't seem like they could go together, but they did.) I had lovely conversations with both mothers (birth and in-law) and felt the warm touch of Holle causing those conversations and making them flow in useful directions. I will not be testing the fertility aspect of the potion any time soon. ;-) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
