Year of the Snake - Lunar Amulet for 2-10-13

This post is a bit late!! So sorry - There are a few of the solid locket refills left in my shop for anyone else who wants to try it.

The Chinese believe that seeing a snake brings good fortune.

The new moon of February 10, 2013 marks the Year of the Snake, and I concocted this serpant-inspired perfume in celebration of the Lunar New Year. This limited edition scent features the dark and spicy South American Palo Santo (holy wood), in a smothering blend of 17 plant essences.

It only takes a minute for the black pepper and sage to give way to the deeper notes of amber, sandalwood, and patchouli. Balsams, resins, and grasses soften the sharp edges of the spiritually cleansing palo santo, conjuring the landscape of dry desert terrain to the senses.
