luna65 Posted February 10, 2012 Share Posted February 10, 2012 Encens de Café A place where dalliances and assignations are a la mode...shadowy and smoky and deliciously-scented...a place where one may encounter one's desire at any moment, in an avant-garde setting...a place of shadows and of mystery. Duskily sophisticated, enter our bohemian café, redolent with Turkish black coffee, cocoa and vanilla bean absolute and a heady dark resin incense blend of nag champa, black amber and sandalwood. We further enhance the environment with a dash of rum, a kiss of sweet vanilla, and a whisper of clove tobacco smoke. This scent is suitable for wear by either sex. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: TURKISH BLACK COFFEE ~ Focus, stamina, concentration, determination. COCOA ABSOLUTE ~ Lightens emotions, evokes feelings of love. VANILLA ABSOLUTE & VANILLA BEAN ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing. AMBER ~ Fertility, creativity, love, luck, riches. TOBACCO ~ Healing, purification, spiritualism. An ode to the Gods. CLOVE ~ Money attracting, deflects negative and hostile energies SANDALWOOD ~ Love, exotic, sensual atmospheric; aphrodisiac. Healing, spirituality, exorcism. CARAMELIZED SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing, wishes granted. SMOKE ~ In addition to the attributes of whatever is being burned (resins, woods, etc), smoke is for cleansing, purification, renewal, consecration, concealment and celebration. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I was most looking forward to this one, as I thought it was a great idea on Princess Fiona's part. It IS exactly coffee incense, so you have to be an incense/resins lover to like it (or at least to try it), and I think it's beautiful and delicious and sexy and exotic and mysterious. The coffee is strongest in the vial and then when wet; as it dries down some of the other notes come forward with the base of that dark incense blend. It's very potent but not overwhelming. And although there's just a subtle touch of sweetness, this is absolutely unisex. I don't think I could get Quince to wear it unless I dab him and run (because the coffee note is very obvious), but much like Voracious and LP Homme I would love to smell this on a man. *purr* Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
