Perfume List

Current fragrances as of 12/8/2022. Scent descriptions usually begin with the dominating note(s) or highest ingredient percentage, ending with the smallest ratio or least noticeable unless otherwise phrased. We do not use a "base" in our perfumes, and isopropyl myristate has no scent. Further individual notations may be found on each fragrance's or category page, and general perfume information is here, with more detail about ingredients here. There is no type of cinnamon in any currently available perfume, and we do not use lavender.

Historian's Closet

Myrrh dominates, swirled into four other resins: Benzoin, Amber (Pinus Succinifera), Frankincense, and Labdanum in that order, then a touch of Tonka bean, and just the slightest air of smoked vanilla. 
*Pinus Succinifera, the amber resin we use, smells similar to  baby powder & cosmetic powder alone, but that aspect is often obscured by other notes in a fragrance.


Cheeky Chipmunk

Burned caramel corn! Scorched caramel top notes gradually fade to reveal slightly sweeter caramel and warm popcorn.

  • Autumn 2022

Arachne & Athena

Creamy condensed milk, softly sweet and rich, swirled with a sizeable percentage of tobacco leaf absolute. Sounds like a strange combination, but the tobacco adds a warm caramel-like woody aspect without additional sweetness.


Dionysos Theoinos

A splash of white cognac, a few drops of red wine, gold brandy, and a speck of vanilla, dry ginger, a tiny sprinkle of brown sugar, golden Somalian myrrh, and just a bit of cypriol, and a drop of silver fir (to represent his thyrsus). This will be quite wine-sweet initially but fade to a more rustic woodsy fragrance as the top notes fade.


Lesvos

Soft, sensual amber, light caramel, a bit of honey and cashmere wool (vegan interpretations), the barest drop of bergamot, and a slight touch of old cedarwood.


Scent Of Dionysos

The softest frankincense entwined with sweet benzoin, black pepper, ambrette, cedarwood, a touch of amber (Pinus Succinifera), with just a slight air of helichrysum flowers and pear. Intended to be an ethereal "skin" scent, as in literally the scent of Dionysos.


To The Fairest

Sweet-tart apple (no spices), luxurious soft amber, ho wood, cashmere wool (vegan interpretation), the breeze over harvested fields.


Apollon Enamored

Tonka bean, bergamot, cypress (of course), late season yellow jasmine, crushed grape leaves, woody oud, and a touch of bitter amyris.


Sparks And Stars

Warm, rich oud, hinoki wood, Himalayan cedarwood, davana, aging leather, clary sage, and a drop of smoky vetiver.


Pandoramonium
On a blanket of warm, softly resinous benzoin rests bright bergamot, black pepper, and tart plum, over a hint of cedar and teak woods, with a drop of oakmoss absolute.


Khrysothemis

Freshly harvested fields of wheat, barley, and chickpeas, a few ripe figs, early Autumn's warm air through the olive trees, and as a play on her name, just a touch of chrysanthemums' bitter floral scent.


Storm Chaser

Misty, salty onshore winds, wet sand and soil, storm surge, broken branches, and gasoline. The gasoline note is because of chasers hurrying to the single station still with power in a small coastal town.


Lowrider

Fresh oil in the engine & hydraulic pump, chrome V8, premium grade gasoline, a whiff of new interior vinyl trim and reupholstered seats.


___________________________________________________

  Note: The nine perfumes below are not a specific collection, and with the exception of Mirthful Indulgence, Aliferous, and Under The Moonrise, were developed to be "masculine" leaning, though likely seem fairly neutral. No of course fragrance cannot be gendered, nor should be, however there are many in the world which distinctly seem to be one way or the other, depending on notes & ratios, and some people specifically seek either. Regardless of some being heavy on fruit, these are probably not going to seem very "feminine" or sweet.

Under The Moonrise

Mango is at the forefront; not candy-like but barely ripe fresh fruit, then the rich, deep fragrance of orange champaca, with a slight air of neroli and surrounding tropical greenery on a humid evening.


Mirthful Indulgence

Fresh pandan leaves crushed and steeped with just a tiny bit of ceylon, topped with sweet cream and sugar. Slightly sweet, but still very "green". Note: This perfume contains a high percentage of natural pandan, but not the same which we extracted in our studio for the old perfume Pandan Frosting. This is stronger and with a more stable lifespan.

Mediterranean Merman

Saltwater is strongly dominant, followed by sun-warmed rocks  intertwined with violet leaf, ambrette, sandalwood, wild orchid, and just a slight touch of pomegranate.  


Aliferous

The earthy, slightly sharp fragrance of Zedoaria (root, not flower, is used for fragrance) dominates, which is offset by sweeter sugar cane, red roses, with a tiny hint of passionfruit and strawberry, along with a drop of warm, syrupy benzoin. 


Scarlet Revelry

Bright, fresh Lychee (Litchi) is the star of this blend. The heavier fragrance of orange champaca follows, with vetiver and guaiac wood. Not a very "sweet" fragrance, but is very lychee-dominant. 


Andros

Italian jasmine, brushed leather, mahogany and ho woods, amber, a touch of rose petals, with just a drop of bergamot. Not a floral-dominant fragrance.


Satyrical

Tangy black pepper mingles with powdery amber resin, sandalwood, Ho wood, benzoin, a touch of vanilla, a drop of bergamot, and a hint of apricot.


Balcony Tryst

Tangerine blossoms! Sweet tangerines mixed with the heavier scent of their flowers, grounded by a bit of ginger lily, soft leather, and benzoin.


Mischievous Consort

Sliced mango is dominant, followed quickly by bergamot, Gurjun balsam, red cedarwood, violet leaf, and a slight touch of amyris. *Not available in oil form*

  • Winter 2021   (Mint is not in any of these; We never use mint  to represent cold)


Bobcat Kittens

The warm aroma of cardamom swirled into cold winter air. This perfume is very high in cardamom oil, and users with skin sensitive to spice concentrates may want to use sparingly.

Orca Splash

Salty, icy sea spray, hitting the forest at the water's edge like mist, enveloping you in the scents of a Pacific inlet, with old growth hemlocks, Sitka spruce, and cedar trees all towering above.


Black-Tailed Deer

Fresh cut Douglas fir wood! Sweet evergreen wood and fir needles the moment it is sawed into or a branch broken.

Spotted Skunk  *Discontinued*

Gooey, sweet vegan marshmallows as they are just beginning to melt under low heat.
Please note: it is not the same marshmallow as in any other of our perfumes; this is much more rich and sweet.


Elk Herd

Red cedar wood (juniper), guaiac wood, vetiver, bergamot, Douglas fir needles, an air of forest mulch & soil.


Winter Sound

Puget Sound, of course. Wet snow falling in silence as cold air takes over the shoreline forest, coating fir and hemlock needles, sticking to the cedar bark.

  • Halloween 2021


Danse Macacre

Slightly sweet sandalwood, amber, labdanum, and a hint of vanilla mingle with billowing woodsmoke and smoldering logs. Named for the 1874 composition by Camille Saint-Saëns.


Dream Of A Witches' Sabbath

A dark forest thick with the scents of fir boughs, pine needles, sticky sweet-smelling tree resins, snapped cedar branches, mingling with the warmer smell of cardamom. "Songe D'une Nuit Du Sabbat" from Hector Berlioz's 1830 Symphonie Fantastique.

Inferno  *Discontinued*

Rich, woodsy amyris, swirled around resinous dragon's blood and sandalwood, topped with a bit of oakmoss. The opening movement of Dante's Symphony by Franz Liszt.

Dies Irae

Sweet indulgent liqueur, heavy labdanum absolute, warm black pepper, a touch of rich vanilla. From Giuseppe Verdi's Requiem.


Isle Of The Dead  *Discontinued*

Sweet, syrupy benzoin dominates, followed by Siberian fir needle, Himalayan cedarwood, amber, and the barest whiff of leather. Named for Sergei Rachmaninoff's 1908 symphonic poem.


In The Hall Of The Mountain King

Warm resins enveloped by woodsmoke, a touch of arid mountain plants, and subtle unsweetened vanilla. A smoky, bitter fragrance. Named for the 1875 composition by Edvard Grieg, the title implies a mountain troll king from Henrik Ibsen's play, "Peer Gynt".
This fragrance was discontinued in 2018, and has been brought back reformulated in 2021. The notes are very similar, but it has differences to the original.

  • Storms

Thundersnow

A little cold, slightly electric and very industrial-metallic, somewhat earthy as the mix of convection and icy temperatures don't quite have the soft peacefulness of ordinary snowfall. Contains no mint.


900 Millibars

Subtropical saltwater, occasional driftwood, acrid hints of intense natural power.

Haboob

Warm sand and red dirt, pulled up off the surface in dry winds.


Mesocyclone

Thick-feeling humid air, and scents of harvested fields mixing with a hint of rain. 

The most "perfumey" of this collection, and is not supposed to be a realistic interpretation of an atmospheric condition. 


Convergence Zone

Late summer light rain on a cool day hits thirsty evergreen trees and dusty soil, bringing a comfortable slight dampness back to the northwest air, finally chasing away the haziness.


Southwest Monsoon

With a breeze of white sage, this fragrance was designed to parallel the scents of dry, cracked desert soil turning to mud while the rain it can't absorb runs toward roadways.

The Marshmallow Prince

Lightly toasted marshmallows and marshmallow creme, black pepper oil, deepened with benzoin & bittersweet dark labdanum resins.

  • Autumn 2020  (Discontinued not listed)


Aerobraking

The combination of warm machine oil, cold titanium, and the slightly stale scent of re-circulated oxygen.

Skiing On Europa

The atmosphere of a distant moon, not as habitable for mammals as Earth, the thin air reminiscent of high mountain elevations before snowfall. Cold, and ozonic like petrichor.

___________________________________________________


Serval

With a distinctive appearance and long legs for jumping high, Servals inhabit many countries across Africa, including Nigeria. Which is where you can find the popular treat, Puff-Puffs. Similar to western style donut holes, these can be found with various flavors and added ingredients (often spices or even onion). Yeast dough, raw and white sugar, a drop of vanilla, the scent of fresh cooking oil.


Just A Nip 

Fresh catnip from spring gardens (before it has been loved on and squashed by neighbor kitties), a little Ceylon tea, a splash of vanilla and just a touch of sweetened cream. Envisioned as a hot or chilled tea, this is very heavy on the (actual) catnip but neither minty nor sharply herbal.

Heirloom Tomato Leaf

Rows of tomato plants on a humid day, their unmistakable heavy green fragrance filling the air and clinging to your hands as you touch the leaves.

Ararat Honey & Apricots

Dark wildflower honey is served alongside apricot jam, rich with a slight bittersweetness. Assumed to be native to the fertile soils of Armenia, apricots are abundant in summer, widely grown in the Ararat valley. The "honey" in our perfumes is a proprietary accord consisting primarily of benzoin resin.

Armenian Rose

The fragrance of dark rose petals and sweeter pink roses with hints of the earthy scent of native lilies.

Arctic Foxes Having Cake

Airy angel food cake with a messy crust, just out of the oven with the barest background of various sweet kitchen scents.

Forest Grandeur

A forest just at the base of the mountains in autumn's first light snow, dominated by fir, hemlock, western red cedar (not a true cedar, but a cypress), and various pines. They grow so close together in some spots that in the first few light snows of the season, the ground is nearly dry under the branches, and walking through you still get the scent of warm earth and brown needles beneath the evergreen boughs and sweet wood scents.

Polar Bear: The Fragrance

Vanilla, vanilla, and more vanilla, creamy but not overly sweet, intertwined with just a bit of palo santo and sandalwood, then cooled with crisp peppermint.

  • Shipwreck  (Discontinued not listed)


Black Squall

Open waters of the deepest blue, eerily calm before the looming arcus cloud in the distance bears down, revealing the wrath of the storm behind it. There was little left to do now but watch and wait.

Cold and clean-smelling seawater, ozonic air, now and then a little olive oil from the lamps.


Smugglers' Tea
With inflated prices and high duties, thanks to the East India Company's monopoly on the trade, smuggling was a more profitable, albeit dangerous, avenue to bring tea from China to merchants in Europe.

Black tea leaves, a slight air of smoky green tea leaves, hints of tobacco, and local wood from the packing crates.

  • Autumn 2019  (Discontinued not listed)

Warm Contentment
Cups of hot Russian Caravan tea and thin slices of tart apples arranged on a carved oak tray make the increasing wind outside seem unconcerning.

Mistress Malediction

Rich, bright amber, sweet orange and a hint of vanilla blended with a slight air of honey and just a tiny touch of jasmine.


Barmbrack
Slightly sweet bread with a few bits of dried fruit and topped with fresh butter, traditionally baked with small divination objects inside and served at Samhain. Contains no sweet notes.

___________________________________________________



Maine Coon

Syrupy benzoin resin dominates, followed by sandalwood, a touch of cardamom, the barest hint of two vanillas, and a bit of amber to make a warm and welcoming fragrance.

Ragdoll
A blend of sugars and cream, livened up with a few drops of honey and bourbon vanilla (all vegan of course).


  • Autumn/Halloween 2017


Lucky Black Cat
A sensual blend of soft, sweet amber intertwined with quite a bit of black pepper, papyrus, a hint of sandalwood.


Aasgard Pass
Blackened Well-done marshmallow kabobs over a campfire skewered on a fir twig.


Marshmalloud
Singed marshmallows on a base primarily of oud, amber, and sandalwood. A rich but bright fragrance.


Snoqualmie Lodge
Crisp October mountain air, fir and pine trees, rocky soil, apples, fallen leaves, warmth from the hearth. We added some leather because you'll want a jacket.

Margherita

Margherita from 2017 has been recreated mid-2020 to have more fresh tomato & basil. Not the oily, hot melted cheese variety (contains no "cheese" type notes), but more like a true artisan pizza with fresh basil leaves over slightly sweet marinara sauce on a thick pan crust. A warmly herbal fragrance.


Kitten Tummies
Fluffy soft kitten, snuggled up on her favorite blanket. Actual notes: Marshmallow, sweet benzoin resin, white sandalwood, sugar, and a hint of myrrh. A light fragrance.

Prey
Four rich resins intertwined with just a slight hint of blackened vanilla and sandalwood, then the subtle sweetness of a dark flower, just enough to draw you in. As if you needed the push.

  • Ancient Rome  (Please read the category notation about this collection prior to purchasing)


Via dell'Abbondanza

Bunches of fresh basil atop bittersweet labdanum with an air of warmer herbs and roots, and just the slightest hint of lime. All fragrance components in this blend are natural botanicals.

Salacia's Silken Stolla

Thyme honey, a rich herbal and sweet-wood aroma reminiscent of honey made from the thyme flowers bees love (which is still produced in Sicily and Greece). An all-natural perfume. Very thick, like warm honey. All fragrance components in this blend are natural botanicals.


Nymphaeum

Slightly sweet citrus peels (mainly pink grapefruit is used in this fragrance, although it did not exist in ancient times), a hint of relaxing chamomile, honey-sweetness, and a sprig of holy basil. All fragrance components in this blend are natural botanicals.

The Grace Of Abundantia

Honey drizzled on oranges, sage from Hispania, with gentle touches of coriander, saffron, and sweet resin. All fragrance components in this blend are natural botanicals.


Sylvanus

Geranium and thyme make a slightly spicy, warm woodsy-floral aroma, with sharpness softened by sweet resins and labdanum. All fragrance components in this blend are natural botanicals.

Malachite Bracelet (new addition to the Ancient Rome collection)

Herbal, slightly sweet fresh basil with a bare hint of soil . Not minty or overly sharp, close to the scent left on your hands after picking the fresh leaves.    Please note: Originally formulated in 2017, but not released with the Ancient Rome collection as we deemed it too simplistic at the time. Since then we have had requests for a true basil fragrance. Which is a little tricky because there are many varieties of basil which all smell (and taste) somewhat different, many having a licorice/anise-like taste (Italian Large Leaf or Spicy Globe for instance). So the basil from your grocery store may differ from what you've grown, which may differ greatly from the basil(s) commonly used for its fragrant properties 2000 years ago well before use as culinary herb. Unlike the other perfumes in our Ancient Rome collection, this blend is not entirely natural botanicals, about 60%.
