Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heav'n. This is our song to Lucifer, Lucis Ferre, Heosphoros, the Morning Star, the Brilliant One and the Son of the Morning. He is equated with Samhazai, the Heaven-Seizer, and Azazel, one of the 200 Fallen Angels of Enoch. The essence of overweening pride and unearthly angelic beauty. A regal scent, glowing darkly, elegant and patrician, but unfathomably desolate. Cherubic white sandalwood and golden musk with a dark halo of amber, a breath of imperial florals, unbending woods, and the shadow cast by vetiver and violet.
An infusion of incalculable power and irresistible temptation. Truly an exercise in megalomania and self-gratification: frankincense and cinnamon, darkened by violet.
Thouroughly corrupted: amber, sandalwood, black patchouli and cinnamon.
An ancient blend, swollen with arcane power: galangal, high john essence, frankincense, cedar, and sandalwood.
The raw, untamable power of chaos. Rosewood, amber, red musk and a dribble of red sandalwood.
Grapefruit, red currant, dark musk, Roman chamomile, delphinium, and lavender.
Dark musk and black amber with frankincense, red sandalwood, neroli and bergamot.
A lazy, warm deep green scent with a thick aquatic undertone: Spanish moss, evergreen and cypress with watery blue-green notes and an eddy of hothouse flowers and swamp blooms.
A rich, bold blend of imperial rose, carnation, lush jasmine, lily of the valley, dark musk, amber, bergamot and gilded tangerine.
A gentlemen's blend, possessed of dignity, charm and refinement, but in truth masking a corrupted, hideous, soulless core. White musk, lime, lilac and citron.
Warrior, Trickster and Goddess of Magic and Poets, she is one of the Tuatha De Danaan and the Queen of the Faeries. A very complex scent, both shadowy and fierce: black orchid, sandalwood, night-blooming jasmine, osmanthus, Somalian rose, and Chinese musk.
Patron of the Aztec pantheon, he is the personification of light within darkness, warmth in the cold, and life in, and after, death. He is a creative and destructive God of Fire and Light, and is appeased only by sacrifice, trial, and the slaughter of his people's enemies. Copal, plumeria and sweet orange and the smoke of South American incense and crushed jungle blooms.
Ave Maria Gratia Plena
will wait for another sale, I think. Thanks for the opinions, guys. I really like lilac, sandalwood, rosewood, copra, nag champa, frankincense, dragonsblood, ylang-ylang, amber, and so forth, so we'll see how it goes. Based just on descriptions, I'm expecting to like Fallen, Faustus, Sin, Magus, and Fenris Wolf best.
