Agarwood & Oakmoss, Fire Embers, Bathtub Gin
Forest and agrestic notes predominate. Fossilized Amber provides an unfettered smoke and tar. Juniper Berry sparkles on top.
Wildwoman/man Archetype, Ley Lines, Tracking Raw
Deepest Oak Forest with barefeet on the ground whilst tracking your feral soul. Hints of yesterday’s fire pit. A liberating teacup of bathtub gin.
The creation of this perfume involves the magical little village of Three Oaks, Michigan, ley lines, and yes, Sasquatch aka Woodwose.
The Sasquatch archetype represents a driving and mystical animal force within us all. Contemporary tales of Sasquatch are similar to “old ways” traditional tales of the Woodwose - a strange woodland creature who rampages in crazed rapture through the Greenwood. It was told the Woodrose was once a man who took to the forest and lived wild until he learned the ways of the shaman. You may also have seen him illustrated as the Greenman with leaves and flowers growing from his wisened face. But he may also be purely supernatural.
Three Oaks is the sort of place the Woodwose might raid for its free loving spirit. An unassuming little village surrounded by woods and farms and near to the glorious sandy shores of southeast Lake Michigan. Something about the place (ley lines maybe?) seems to historically attract a variety of artists, entrepreneurs, gangster bootleggers, and varietal free spirits.
This Perfume hearkens and honors these spirits.
"...this beast is gorgeous (as I am sure he is no matter where he lives). The oakmoss is turgid with life, gilded with nuances of bergamot but then dusty with lichen as well. I simply love a good oakmoss. Threads of smokey fire and oud ruffle the edges and lend the suggestion of warm fur that holds the ghosts of campfires and cave fires where succor can be found. In the heart the gin adds a clarity that speaks of burbling cold creeks and juniper sap."

This perfumed oil goes on light and sheer yet is surprisingly rich. It wears intimately, close to the body and will not overpower others nearby, merely enchant them. Longevity is 3-8 hours depending on skin type and activity. During that time the scent will open and transform.
The perfume arrives tucked in a sachet bag filled with spanish moss, dried roses, and a genuine Faerie.
For external use only. Do not ingest.
