Coyote handsome
his coat the same brown
as the dust from which he rises

Missing Left Sock Beast [userpic]

I just splurged a bit (okay, I bought something instead of buying yarn, so I suppose that's not much of a splurge) and bought a set of six Sample Scents from Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs.

These are the six scents I've ordered:
Coyote, Elegba, Pele, Black Rose, Blood Kiss (not for me), Loup Garou

Descriptions:

COYOTE
The Native American Creator / Trickster God of Chaos and Change. The warmth of doeskin, dry plains grasses and soft, dusty woods warmed by amber and a downy, gentle coat of deep musk.

ELEGBA
The Spirit of the Divine Messenger, the Lord of the Crossroads, He Who Owns All Doors and Roads in this World. He is the intermediary between the Orishas and mankind, and stands at the intersection of humanity and the Divine. He opens all paths of communication, both mundane and Heavenly. His ofrenda contains coconut, tobacco and sweet, sugared rum.

PELE
Whimsical, temperamental, radiant and ravishingly beautiful Goddess of Volcanoes, Fire, Lightning and Dance. She is the Mother of Eruptions and the personification of destructive power. Volcanic eruptions are said to be a side-effect of her jealous rages and her epic quarrels with her siblings are legendary. This perfume embodies her gentler, benign aspect as the capricious Goddess of Dance: muguet and Hawaiian white ginger enveloped by warm, damp tropical blooms.

BLACK ROSE
Exquisitely melancholy. The background scent to an ancient exequies. Heavy, dark and floral: a blend of roses, with a touch of amber and musk.

BLOOD KISS (Purchased to give as a gift.)
Lush, creamy vanilla and the honey of the sweetest kiss smeared with the vital throb of husky clove, swollen red cherries, but darkened with the vampiric sensuality of vetiver, soporific poppy and blood red wine, and a skin-light pulse of feral musk.

LOUP GAROU
The wild, untamed essence of lycanthropy. Primeval in its raw power and insatiable hunger: juniper, cypress and galangal with the barest touch of eucalyptus.

This company's fascinated me for a while. I'll let all y'all know what I think when I get them and can check them out.

I don't wear a lot of scent, BTW, nor do I wear it often, but I'm getting a little bored with my usual and decided to try something a bit different.

Feeling:: amusedacquisitive

Please let me know how you like them. I'm very interested in the Dragon collection!

Yes, please do report on them! Some of those sound quite intriguing! Especially Coyote and Black Rose... :)

I will have to check out the web site.
