So, now that we have a winner, onto the perfumes! The Unseelie Court

I've come out with a couple more perfumes this year, and have a few on the "aging shelf" to see what they will morph into. Also in the works; someone contacted me and wanted to see what I could create by musing on a couple of "Yes" songs. 
One being based on the song "South Side of the Sky' and/or the other song base on "Heart of the Sunrise" Challenge accepted! 
I'm so in love with music from days of old, and especially anything "trippy". I'm on it. I'm leaning more on the side of "Heart of the Sunrise". Lot's of base driven notes (double entrendre's) and some wacked out "Yes" style riffs. No one said it would be easy.

So on to the current. Earlier this year I released "The Seelie Court" which was to be the other half of a Duo Concept fragrance couple. The other half of the duo to be named "The Unseelie Court". The dark and the light, the feminine and masculine, the sweet and the not so sweet but, when combined, the grey, the balanced, the sultry and the mysterious. 2 more personal favorites of mine, even more so when I layer the 2 together.The Unseelie Court being the masculine, dark, not so sweet based on Irish/Scotish Fae "Folklore" (will post more at that at the end of this post). Notice the word "folklore" in quotations. I do that to be straight as, The Fae are not a Fairy Tale but, could be best understood as "Shamanic earth energies'. That is to say that everything alive has energy, and sometimes these energies can not be seen. Almost always the case with the Fae.  On with the second half of the duo.

The Unseelie Court or Unblessed Court contains the most malicious, malevolent and evil of the faeries, and a number of monsters of horrible appearance and fearsome abilities as well. They comprise the Slaugh, or The Host, the band of the unsanctified dead who fly above the earth, stealing mortals and take great pleasure in harming humans. 
Often called the ‘Unblessed Ones,’ the Unseelie were depicted as a dark cloud riding upon the wind from where their unnerving cackles and howls can be heard. Though not necessarily evil, they were far from kind. These unsavory characters tended towards evil and were often malignant. Some Scottish legends claim that the Unseelie were fallen Seelie, those who could not live up to the strict standards of chivalry of the shining court. They have no method of reproduction, so they enslave mortals whom they think would never be missed and carry them along to become one of them. The Unseelie Court was almost always out to harm, or at least bedevil and trick, humankind.
Some of the members of the Unseelie Court included:
The sluagh (the Hosts of the Unforgiven dead, akin to the Wild Hunt)Shellycoat (a trickster of the coasts)Redcap (a vicious fairy who drenched his cap with human blood)

Although The Unseelie Court is a Unisex fragrance, it leans more towards the masculine, evoking a deep, hidden wooded forest. Dry woody notes of patchouli & black coffee essential oils, lush fir balsam essential oil, sandalwood, oud (agar wood) essential oil, oakmoss, and some other Fae secrets.
Fragrance Family: Wood/Green - Season: Any - Mood: Masculine/Sexy

Ladies, blend the 2 together. You'll smell unforgettable.
