Invidiana Posted October 7, 2011 Share Posted October 7, 2011 Beyond the Veil Step right up, if you dare to see what lies beyond our mortal coil… Experience the otherworldly vibe of a rich and rare blend of Indian and Arabian attars and resins (amber, sandalwood and nag champa among others) with a spicy sprinkling of roasted cinnamon, cardamom and clove, which is then given a deep Autumnal evocation of dry leaves and woods and a haunting whisper of bergamot. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: AMBER ~ Fertility, creativity, love, luck, riches. NAG CHAMPA ~ Self-confidence, anxiety reduction, prosperity; powerful love attractant, spiritual love. ROASTED CINNAMON ~ Male sexual stimulation, passion, lust, healing, protection, energy, creativity, psychic powers. CARDAMOM EO ~ Lust, love. CLOVE BUD EO ~ Money attracting, deflects negative and hostile energies. VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing. BERGAMOT ~ Relaxant, confidence builder. Uplifts emotions, protection, attracts riches, attracts spirits. Mental alertness, energizing. SANDALWOOD ~ Love, exotic, sensual atmospheric; aphrodisiac. Healing, spirituality, exorcism. FALL LEAVES and AUTUMN WOODS ~ Renewal and cleansing, birth, healing, Lunar energies, and protection. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The best way I can describe this is spooky incense. I mean "spooky" not in terms of a musty old basement but rather bewitching, alluring, a tad dangerous. It's like a smoky veil of incense intertwining with warm spices, which don't amp to infinity on me here, and the scents of autumn woods and dry leaves, all sweetened a bit with vanilla. It makes me think of one of those woods-witches George R.R. Martin describes in Song of Ice and Fire (FTR I finally finished the entire thing or at least what's written of it so far), an evocation of a sorceress swathed in diaphanous fabrics emerging through a curtain of incense smoke into a moonlit autumn night. Just smelling it makes me feel all mystical and mysterious. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
