luna65 Posted January 8, 2012 Share Posted January 8, 2012 A Treasure of Aquamarine Because the color aquamarine is a blending of blue and green palettes, thus its scent is a mix of those same hues. Combining a cool pure evocation of spring water with fresh-cut green stems along with grounding mineral-like touches of resins and a soft dusting of dry vanilla it embodies the clean calming mood of this stone, named for the sea and bringing an aura of courage and clarity to its wearer, swirling with iridescent aqua mica. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: AQUATIC ACCORDS (WATER) ~ Cleansing, purifying, fertility, feminine energy, rejuvenation, rebirth, elemental magic.

As I've noted, this is highly ironic for a Piscean such as myself. And this gem - whose very name is derived from water - needs such a scent to portray it.And I need it, of course, because it's my birthstone and I love "blue" scents although of course not all of them are aquatic-based.But I really like this one, no foolin.' Trust me, no one is more suprised than I. (Although I am equally a fan of Embody the Tarot: Temperance, which is also a water scent.)There's something about this which does evoke the clear clean feeling of water on first application and yet evolves to a deeper layer of flinty sweetness. I know...what? But Mara, connoisseur of water, knows the inherent sweetness mineral water can possess and she captures it perfectly. That quality remains on my skin and lasts and I keep sniffing myself happily. But still that freshness is there just below the surface.Finally, a Piscean fragrance for a quirky Fish like me.
