4th Dimension: A man who could surely be said to be our preeminent futurist – in that his fictional creations were explorations of future realms often prescient in their portrayals – was the English novelist H.G. Wells. Often referred to as “the father of Science Fiction,” he approached his writing from a distinctly scientific and socialist viewpoint, which is evident in such works as The Island of Dr. Moreau, The War of the Worlds, and The Time Machine. The latter novel is one of the very first portrayals of time travel, and a classic devising of Wells’ philosophy combined with his quest for plausible depictions of potential technology. We constructed our very own tribute to the novel with a journey both back in time and to those native regions which surely inspired the author in his imaginative names! A dusty, antique bouquet of Rose Geranium with hints of honeysuckle and rose and a drop of sandalwood is placed within the Moors and Lochs of the British Isles: dried marsh grasses and mosses and a wisp of marsh orchid.
Amazonia Zee: Numerous stories exist of intrepid explorers, but only a few inspired other stories which would then take hold in popular culture. One such personage was Colonel Percy Fawcett: solider, sportsman, surveyor and explorer. From his first visit to the Amazon in 1906 he was enchanted and obsessed with the region, believing it not only an area of enormous potential to the Empire, but full of arcane mystery. This was a man who could survive the deepest darkest jungles with True Brit, using anything he had to hand…such as bringing parlay to a remote aggressive tribe with the use of an accordion. Up until his disappearance in 1925 the world's knowledge of the Amazon was forever enhanced by his explorations, and his theory of a ancient civilization in the Amazonian Basin - a lost world he referred to as "Z" – was a legendary quest and would serve as fictional inspiration for many an adventurous tale. In salute to the impervious Percy, we've created a scent comprised of ingredients from the Amazonian rainforest, and perhaps that lost world which still calls to those longing to experience their own adventures…vanilla pods and coconut butter and cream brightened with lemongrass and mango upon a base of smooth rainforest teak and musk with a touch of goat’s milk.
Amphitrite: The underworld beneath our ken…fathoms deep, it murmurs in the motion of the waves, of violent storms and calm surfaces…the ocean is a vast region irresistible to those desiring to discover its secrets. The sea is forever feminine: the cradle of life and cache of treasures awaiting recovery. And many have been found, thanks to the efforts of explorers such as Robert Ballard, discoverer of many significant wrecks such as the RMS Titanic and the battleship Bismarck. To capture the intrigue of this liquid space we present an aquatic potion comprising aspects of water magic: cleansing, purifying, life-affirming. The blooms of waterlily, Bird of Paradise, freesia and delphinium are strewn upon fresh-cut greenery and enhanced with an ozone accord and a light resinous musk. Lovers of our Nymph fragrance will desire to be drowned in the depths of Amphitrite.
Anthea: The world all around us is filled with living entities which are just as potentially mysterious to us now as they have been since before recorded history: plant life. Plants preceded us, sustain us and our habitats, provide beauty and bounty, but they are also a source of continual discovery in regards to their myriad uses and sources. At London's Kew Gardens – which houses the planet’s largest collection of living plants - the study and appreciation of botany has been in continual attendance for over 200 years. The staff works to protect and repopulate endangered and extinct species, and retain numerous varieties with their seed bank. To celebrate the abundance of vegetative life we’ve crafted a lovely floral blend fit for a goddess (and thus we have named it for the goddess of gardens)…two types of Lily of the Valley entwined with pink lotus blossom, blended with rich amber and buttercream and a drop of cedar.
Ectoplasm: The chronicling of the presence of ghosts is nearly as old as human history, but the Spiritualist movement which emerged in the 19th century and spread worldwide was an exploration into those purported realms beyond the veil of mortal understanding, spearheaded by two sisters from the Hudson Valley region of New York, Maggie and Kate Fox. At its height the field was rife with pseudo-scientists and other charlatans attempting to quantify the phenomena with questionable experiments and terminology. We say "Boo!" to all those who sought to understand what exactly does goes bump in the night with our ghostly unisex fragrance which is delicately mysterious….a blend of classic old-fashioned musk and earth is haunted by the shadow of dark spooky basements and finished with a breath of flowery aquatic and a wisp of ectoplasmic ozone.
Galapagos: An amazing tale of exploration and groundbreaking discovery into the origins of life itself is contained within the journals of the famed naturalist Charles Darwin, whose five-year voyage upon the HMS Beagle led to a unifying theory regarding the diversity of life on Earth. This fragrance is based upon the field research Darwin undertook while investigating the Galapagos Islands, a formation relatively new at the time, geologically-speaking. A beautifully primordial coastal scent comprised of ingredients found only in that region, we've blended Purple Prickly Pear fruit with a brine accord, as well as top notes of Morning Glory and salty Mangrove leaves.
Mayberry ~ w/Mother's Little Helper: The best kind of motherly love is straight from the oven! During the month of May we celebrate the nurturers of us all and so harken back to a simpler time and place…though it may only be mythical in origin, it is a place where many wish they could dwell, an Arcadian idyll of quiet streets, friendly people, and wonderful down-home cooking. As this particular fictional hamlet was said to reside in North Carolina, we thought we'd whip up a cobbler with fruits native to the area tasty enough to rival any from our favorite pop culture auntie…three types of blueberry and a hint of elderberry are stirred into a creamy vanilla batter with just a grounding touch of sweet amber. And to provide comfort to all those who care for others, we've added the soothing aura of our exclusive MOTHER’S LITTLE HELPER pheromone blend, a blend for women to help create a sea of peace and calm, pleasant interactions, warmth, coziness, friendliness and helpfulness...while secretly exerting a little authority too.
Rihla: The length of a journey often depends on the desire of the traveler, and the 14th century Muslim explorer and scholar Ibn Battuta was a most resolute soul, considered one of the greatest and wide-ranging travelers of all time, visiting North Africa, the Horn of Africa, West Africa and Eastern Europe in the West, and to the Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and China in the East. His thirty-year odyssey is recounted in the Rihla – an Arabic word for "journey" - and in it he reflected upon the many things he had never before seen, including such exotica as plums, watermelon, silk, and paper money. Having covered even more ground than Marco Polo, we thought he deserved a scented tribute to those travels: a lovely enticing fragrance with a heart of juicy plum framed by Indian sandalwood, frankincense, two types of Oud attar and a precious dusting of Arabian spice.
Wink at the Moon: Sic itur ad astra…from the ancient Greeks to the present day, humans have looked up into the vastness of the sky and longed for a way to leave the bounds of Earth…and none were perhaps as inspiring in this endeavor as those who first ventured into outer space in the 1960s. From numerous discoveries, technological advances, and capturing the imagination of every generation to follow, the space programs of the US and USSR stand as the vanguards of discovery of the wonders of our solar system and beyond. With this fragrance we pay whimsical tribute to those astronauts who braved the unknown and traveled out of the blue and into the black. In this variation on the recipe for Moon Cakes, a Chinese/Vietnamese festival confection, dried apricot and figs are chopped together with a sweet-roasted medley of chestnuts, pecans and sesame in brown sugar syrup, swirled with vanilla and amber and lightened with just a touch of Freesia – a flower sacred to goddesses of the moon.
Wonderful Things: Ancient Egypt…the very definition of mystery and astonishing wealth to history buffs the world over, and its evolution into a cultural mania began with the discoveries of archaeologist Howard Carter, who entered the profession at the tender age of 17 and immediately proved himself an innovator in regards to field work methodology. But Carter is most well-known for his excavation in 1922 of the nearly-intact tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamen in the Valley of the Kings. In that fateful moment when upon the precipice of a life-changing discovery, he was asked by his patron Lord Carnavon if he could see anything beyond the as-yet unopened doorway of the tomb and Carter replied, "Yes, wonderful things." This is an olfactory portrait of that famed land in fertile times: a fresh floral with Blue Lotus blossom and Pink Lotus absolute ornamenting a crown of numerous varieties of myrrh and cardamom with accents of balsam of Gilead and the golden glow of light honey and a pinch of cassia.
Bedeviled: Many of the classic magicians liked to play act that they were assisted by devilish creatures from beyond the veil and harnessed supernatural powers which allowed them to create their "miracles." There's also a legend, or folk superstition, which states when a person sneezes, the act of taking that abrupt inhalation before the sneeze is a perfect opportunity for a devil to sneak right up your nose. This is why the custom of saying "bless you" has arisen and continues today...the act of the blessing foils the devil's plan. You might require such information, Ladies & Gents, if you dare to wear this most enthralling fragrance. Concocted from three types of devilishly spicy black pepper varieties, blended with smooth Havana tobacco and exotic molten resins, it is a darkly mysterious sleek and sensual unisex blend. But just remember: with all that pepper in this potion, should someone sneeze while you’re wearing it don’t forget to say “BLESS YOU!”
Blackstone: An ode to a courtly and elegant master of the ancient arts. He drew from the secrets of the beyond and combined them with technology so new, his audiences were astounded and confounded. Many of the well-loved illusions of today's magicians are directly from the repertoire of The Great Blackstone. Our fragranced tribute to him is much in the same vein, so unique and mesmerizing, you too will be convinced it is made of magic...the blackest of exotic ingredients with a cherry stone core: deeply sweet black cherry and black currant swirled with the Devil’s Food of bittersweet chocolate and finished with strong black coffee and dusky resins.
Dance of Passion - Phero Enhanced: The image of the artwork for magician Horace Goldin's "Tiger God - Dance of Passion" inspired this most passionate of scents, a "dirty" sexy blend, heavy with naughty honeys and Egyptian and animalic musks, then lightened with a whisper of delicate feminine orchid and a sprinkling of powdered sugar. Use this one carefully, for there is no doubt it is a potion of power and conquest, made for the kind of animal passion which only comes out at night. Its seductive allure is further enhanced with the pheromone power of copulins and feminizing estratetraenol.
Ionia: The supremely glamorous Ionia the Enchantress was one of the few female magicians of her time, the youngest daughter of magicians Charles and Julia de Vere. Her specialty was Grand Illusion and she had a famously beautiful trick where she filled a room with a shower of glittering confetti by first starting with a lump of wet paper. The mechanics of her illusion involved filling an eggshell with dry confetti and crushing it while producing an ornate Chinese fan to send it swirling in the air, concealing the wet paper beneath in her palm. Our potion is an ode to her mysterious ways and includes an egg as well...a dessert recipe which was popular in her day: a pastry crafted of a spiced almond paste and egg mixture, swirled with raspberry jam.
Levitation - Phero Enhanced: Levitation was a trick practiced by many of the classic magicians, and is still considered one of the greatest illusions of all time. The methods are many - and closely-guarded secrets - so we can't promise we can make you fly like Superman, but we can provide you with a potion which will make you feel lighter than air, and lift the spirits of yourself and those around you in the bargain...a whipped meringue shot through with tinges of airy orchid and pink grapefruit blossom and sprinkled with strawberry sugar. We then add the happy magic of our mood-elevating OPEN WINDOWS pheromone formula and an extra splash of giddy DHEAS.
Metamorphosis: The English inventor and watchmaker John Nevil Maskelyne was also a magician who originated the art of Levitation as well as a trick known as Metamorphosis, made further famous by the most sensational escape artist of all time - Harry Houdini. The illusion involves the trading of places between the magician and his assistant, seeming to vanish in thin air and then reappearing on the other side of the stage. Variations often have involved an element of peril such as water tanks, locks and chains, but our ode to this bit of magical history is simply a celebration of a welcome metamorphosis in nature...the changing of Winter into Spring. Spring flowers of Magnolia & Peony are melded with a warm and delicate vanilla sugar and topped with the summery promise of ripe peaches and rich cream.
Mysteries of the Orient: In an era when most of the populace did not have recourse to travel, people flocked to performances featuring exotic personages, sharing marvels from distant parts of the globe. Chung Ling Soo was (and still is today) much admired for his showmanship, daringly dangerous feats and amazing magical inventions. He never spoke during his performances, relying on his beautiful wife Suee Seen to speak for him in English since he seemingly did not know the tongue. The truth of the matter is that they were really both Americans. She, a Kentucky gal by the name of Dot, and he, Billy Robinson from New York City. But their "cover" was a convincing one and hardly anyone knew the truth of their genuine identities. With this ode to the couple, we crafted the kind of fragrance that may have been part of Suee Seen's wardrobe of transformation from Kentucky gal to exotic Asian beauty...soft pink cherry blossoms scattered upon silken musk and vanilla chiffon with hints of exotic fruits and flowers and a droplet of Asian teakwood.
Radium Girl: The Radium Girl was one of the original names (circa 1919) given to the classic "big box penetration and restoration trick", wherein the magician's lovely assistant would be placed (or chained) in a box and then subjected to impalement by spears, sawing in half, and seemingly, various states of bodily part displacement. This astounding feat of stage magic is credited to turn of the century British illusion designer Val Walker - known as the “Wizard of the Navy” due to his service in the Royal Navy - an electrical apparatus maker, who also designed a straightjacket for Houdini! Don’t we all wish we could remake ourselves so easily? So we concocted an island vacation in a bottle which is sure to leave you feeling relaxed, restored and positively glowing! A beautifully breezy mix of bright pineapple, lush orchid, island gardenia and deliciously smooth coconut cream.
Sands of the Nile: Stage magic is a venerable tradition; it's interesting to note that the earliest written record of magic for entertainment purposes goes all the way back to 1700 BCE, Egypt, which is a written account of stories dating back to the 20th century BCE; 4,000 years ago! And a trick acknowledging those ancient origins is Sands of the Nile, last made popular by illusionist Doug Henning, involving the mixing together of various colors of sand into a bowl of water, which are then miraculously extracted and restored dry into separate piles of their original colors. This is our ode to this trick and the magic of ancient Egypt...a mixture of ingredients sacred to the Egyptians, most of which could be found in the Nile River Valley. A mesmerizing mingling of smooth oakmoss and sandalwood, with refreshing accents of bamboo, Egyptian mint and neroli. The scent is polished with a sandy aspect, and smells absolutely magical on both women and men.
Seer - Phero Enhanced: American-born magician Alexander billed himself as "The Man Who Knows", stunning his audiences by reading their thoughts as well as his displays of crystal seeing, soothsaying, and paranormal manifestations. But what The Great Alexander actually had was an assistant with a transmitter speaking into his ear under that great turban. Our potion reflects the magic of our modern age...composed of fragrance ingredients known to put your subject at ease: a dry, soft and powdery Victorian-style vanilla blended with the resinous accents of a trio of myrrh EOs and Indonesian balsam EO as well as soothing Roman chamomile and Ylang EOs, while the addition of our True Confessions phero formula encourages your subjects to share their innermost secrets. This is a soft and cozy scent that both sexes can wear.
Love Potion®: Gold: A much-loved Love Potion variant recreated just in time for the sunny days of Spring! Our delicious signature base of vanilla, amber and patchouli is blended with the golden sheen of honey and glittering with bright citrus notes – pink grapefruit, orange and lemongrass – plus a luscious slather of cocoa butter. Seek your heart's desire with this playful, upbeat yet thoroughly feminine fragrance which always leads to that greatest of treasures…LOVE!
Baby Chicks: It's just not a celebration of Spring without sugary gooey confections shaped like cute fuzzy baby animals! Our version of the Easter Basket classic is sheer pink fruitiness – courtesy of a mixture of cherry, strawberry and berries – blended with our favorite marshmallow flavoring and a cream filling accord for extra fluffiness. You will peep with pleasure to wear our candied creation!
Bonnie: Fresh and natural and thoroughly beautiful! Crafted of wild heather with accents of sweet fresh hay and an earthy amber resin, plus just a kiss of sweetness provided by a bushel of Aberdeen dewberries.
Emerald City: A tribute to the Emerald Isle from a denizen of the Emerald City…Our very own Le Wizard has created a unisex fragrance which mingles his memories of living in Seattle with an evocation of the shores of Eire…fresh and verdant as a lush landscape of emerald hues…a blending of musky, misty and mossy green notes with the chill breath of the sea and a tangy glimmer of lime.
Leprechaun Luck: It's no wonder we ladies love leprechauns…they are cobblers after all – that's how they amassed their fabulous fairy wealth – and who doesn’t love a good pair of magical shoes? But let's focus on the important part: the gleaming pot of gold they hoard so carefully. We've created a very special prosperity potion indeed, not only in terms of bringing the gold (and green) to you, but granting the hope of succeeding in all endeavors, because a positive attitude is half the battle!
Pixie Dust: An ethereal gauzy floral, perfect for Spring: a floating base of transparent musk and soft fuzzy vanilla frames a delicate arrangement of wisteria, lilac and heliotrope.
Ruby Red: A bevy of berries is magickally transformed into a sophisticated scent! A riot of red raspberries, strawberries and currants are blended with rich resins: white patchouli, frankincense and myrrh and…presto! Tart and sweet with a layer of elegant powdery smoothness.
Scotchies: Who could have ever guessed that oatmeal is sexy? We did! This is one of the most scrumptiously sensual blends ever concocted and you'll have to wear it very carefully lest you be devoured once the scent slithers into the nose of your desired one...YUM! A mix of five oatmeal and three butter accords, sweetened with just a touch of maple and honey, this fragrance is reminiscent of those famously delicious cookies - oatmeal scotchies - but also sweet and warm in a decidedly erotic sort of way.
Tease - Phero Enhanced w/ Lace: A smoky-sweet marshmallow musk – sprinkled with powdered sugar and dry vanilla – with just the tiniest tease of delicious shiny red apple, like the slightest blush upon lips heavily-kissed, and what lingers is faintly sugary, lacy and sheer. And because this scent is a perfect tease, we've enhanced it with the feminine charms of our exclusive LACE pheromone mix, which contains a "woozy" amount of Alpha-Androstenol (mood elevator, attraction amplifier) plus the precious ultra-feminizing pheromone Estratetraenol. Effects are reported as making the wearer feel extra girly and even a bit ditsy...a "Marilyn-esque" aura that is highly attractive to men.
Wicked: Surrender (Dorothy), to this blend of pitch black resins - Nag Champa, Patchouli, Dragon's Blood and Amber - combined with devilishly spicy pumpkin, brewed with "spiritual" assistance thanks to a splash of brandy and rum.
