My Fall/Winter 2017 botanical scent was inspired by the mythology and symbolism of the ancient, beneficent Egyptian goddess, Isis. I was inspired by the beautiful, powerful wings with which she is sometimes depicted in ancient Egyptian art. She uses them to suggest blessings and protection; commonly with her beloved consort, Osiris.
Isis was a chthonic goddess, said to be so powerful and skilled in her magic that she brought Osiris back to life after his untimely death. Due to Isis’s connection to the mysteries of life, death, and rebirth, this Arabesque Aromas scent was designed to compliment the darker (but no less beautiful or magical) seasons of Autumn and Winter.
“The Wings of Isis” was blended with warm, sacred, uplifting essential oils including high-elevation Lavender (yes, pun intended) Cistus, Benzoin, Frankincense and other botanical infusions and resins. Whether worn as a simple perfume or used as an anointing oil when you are feeling low, “The Wings of Isis” was created to help nourish, soothe, and uplift the psyche.
“The Wings of Isis” is available to sample in 1 ml for $7.00, in the 6 ml anointing oil size for $40.00, or as a 15 ml botanical perfume in Arabesque Aroma’s minaret-style bottle for $120.00. Samples ship First Class Mail $3.50 Perfumes and Anointing Oils ship Priority Mail for $7.00 within the US.
I have three pre-blended 6 ml botanical scents still available at the $25.00 sale price.
Perfume descriptions can be found here for the three scents The Green Mantle, The Man of the Woods, and Drann. My white flower Eau de Parfum “Serafina” has sold out but there is still one last 1 ml sample remaining. What a great sale! Thanks everyone!
Samples of Arabesque Aroma’s three anointing oils, in keeping with the ongoing theme of ’emotional wellbeing’ are also available in a set which include 1 ml each of: the Magdalen Rose Anointing Oil for the (emotional) heart, The Song of Solomon featuring botanicals mentioned in the Songs (earthy/sensuous/romantic) and the Wings of Isis (uplifting/protective.) Makes a nice gift. Sampler is $21.00 plus $7.00 Priority shipping. Contact me for international shipping quotes.
