The Spinky Kitten blogs about Bloody Strumpets Perfume!

Being a "business" I can't always vent about well... whatever I want, and so I must live vicariously through other Bloggers and Facebook friends. I do so appreciate honesty, and although one may be upset about this or that - that they are venting about, I find my self both smiling, and feeling a sense of relief for them. The Spinky Kitten is one of those endearing Blogs. She also reviewed my "Bloody Strumpets perfume. You can read about it here.
 I always wondered why this particular perfume oil got so little attention. It's one of the perfumes that when I fill up a bottle for someone, I say to myself, "Wow, that a great one", and wonder why it's sometimes avoided. Well Spinky Kitten had the answer! "It's the name" she said! She thought it was far too classy of a fragrance to have such a dirty, unappealing name. I however, like a bit of controversy and in fact, if not for my business sense (or lack there of) and my conscience, some of the names and concepts I come up with would be rated at least a hard core "R". I guess this is still why it's so important to never judge a book by it's cover, or in this case a perfume by it's name :)
Bloody Strumpets can be found here!

Newly released: "The Seelie Court" Fae Fantasy Perfume Oil

The Seelie Court Artisan Perfume Oil

The Seelie Court were considered the true aristocrats of the Daoine Sidhe. They were judges, dispensing justice to the other faery when it was required, and served as frequent arbitrators of the many faery quarrels. The Seelie Court was very political, complete with cliques, factions, gossiping, and rivalry. 

Sometimes called the ‘Blessed Ones,’ the Seelie were often depicted as a procession of brilliant light riding on the night air. The Seelie Court, as a group, would often use these excursions to find those in need of help. The Seelie were also prone to a great deal of mischief, especially when bored. However, their pranks rarely caused true harm, for the Seelie were really very fond of humans.

This perfume oil is a Fairy's nectar dream, made of a concoction with top notes of almond, swirling honeycomb, warm milk, sweet amber, Madagascar bourbon vanilla, and wild musk. Sweet and smooth all the way through, and dries down to reveal secret pheromones of a tribe unknown to most.  For the "home alchemist", this one mixes well with dry woody fragrances.

A few new perfumes out this year....a bit behind in posting

I've been so busy with trying to get the web site updated with proper shipping costs and such, that this poor blog has had to take a back seat. It's still nowhere near done but, I need to take a little break from it for a minute.

Here's what's new:

Nevermore unisex fragrance:
This one is particularly dark , dirty and has bunches of attitude.
Not to be ignored in this fragrance, either sex will stand out from the crowd. My husband is especially fond of this one on me. It's his opinion of "sex in a bottle" ;)

"Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
"Though thy crest be shorn and shaven thou," I said, "art sure no craven,
Ghastly, grim, and ancient raven, wandering from the nightly shore.
Tell me what the lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore."
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."
Edgar Allan Poe

Nevermore is a black as night fragrance for Men, blending dark, aged patchouli essential oil, Virginia cedar wood essential oil, green amber essential oil, caraway seed essential oil, black pepper e.o., nutmeg e.o., and a bit of musk swirling in the base.

Fragrance family: Wood - Season: Winter/Fall - Mood: Dark/dirty 
Currently available in my Etsy shop here and soon to be available in my Web Store here

Next we have a new gourmand from the KrAzY KaRnIvAl Collection called "The Carousel"  Carnival Perfume Oil

This perfume is a fun, bright blend of Pink Grapefruit, Pink Peppercorn, Pink Cotton Candy, a hint of cypress and some other happy secrets. Starts out with the top note of pink grapefruit and swirling cotton candy, a bit of pink pepper sneaks in behind the cypress, with a final dry down of slight strawberry scented cotton candy.
Perfect for the Spring & Summer Months.

It's available  here and in my web store here within the next couple of days.

Last but, definitely not least is my new personal favorite that I named Opiate.

I'm so in love with the smell of black currants. They have this wonderful raisin scent and  yet, it also smells a bit like a very deep, dark red wine. 
I adore blending this particular oil in more romantic and moody perfumes so, I chose my favorite sweet tobacco (Bulgarian tobacco) to play nicely with Bulgarian black currants, teak wood, sandalwood, and my all time favorite Madagascar vanilla.
The combination of these oils gives me a feeling of floating above the world, weightless, and in an opiate kind of high, hence this perfumes name.
This one works super well on either sex as the woods tend to be far in the background on women, and  on men it becomes super sexy and mysterious.
(Made with essential oils and absolutes)
You can purchase this one here

So, that's about it for the moment  More to come soon.
