Invidiana Posted November 1, 2010 Share Posted November 1, 2010 Verhext Men and women can be bewitching this Autumn with our vibrant layering of warm woods and fallen leaves, a trace of woodfire smoke, the piquant zing of a trio of spicy pepper EOs, sensuous dragon's blood resin and smoky patchouli infused with ripe fig. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: WARM WOODS & FALLEN LEAVES ~ Love, spreads an exotic aura, mystery, darkness. Enhances psychic powers, healing, divination, luck, protection. FIG ~ Wisdom, fertility, love, luck, protection, aids restful sleep, divination. Feminine sexuality. PEPPER ~ Protection, fidelity, dispels envy and evil, exorcism, breaks hexes. DRAGON'S BLOOD ~ Entices errant lovers to return, increases power of other ingredients. Love, protection, exorcism, potency. PATCHOULI ~ Soothes and uplifts; sensual, sexually stimulating, lust, fertility, money. Meditative and transforming. SMOKE ~ In addition to the attributes of whatever is being burned (resins, woods, etc), smoke is for cleansing, purification, renewal, consecration, concealment and celebration. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The description had me at "fallen leaves", and the scent is an amazing interpretation of this time of year. It's warm, woody, smoky and autumnal with just the right amount of thick sweetness in the background to balance everything out. I take it the sweetness comes from the fig, which lends a certain pleasant stickiness to it, and deeply sexy dragon's blood which has its sensuality amped up with the addition of patchouli. For anyone afraid of pepper, take it from someone who often amps spices; it really only adds a warming element to the blend and doesn't scream OMGITSPEPPERFROMYOURSPICECABINET, I promise. I feel it actually mixes flawlessly with everything else; I can't pick out "pepper" per se, just a certain overall heat. This is an awesome autumnal scent that knowing myself I'd probably wear year-round. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
