Lovely Little Deaths
Venom: it’s more than just a mediocre Tom Hardy superhero movie; it’s also a deadly toxin that can easily kill someone. Those toxins can also be used to treat diseases (or wrinkles, if you’re into that kind of thing). That’s what makes it so fun: maybe it’ll kill you, maybe it’ll help you. You’ll never know until you try. And this woody blend with notes of coal and patchouli and highly-sought-after oud will get your heart racing like you were bitten by a cobra. But without the possibility of death, which is probably a good thing.
Scent notes: Oud wood, smoked patchouli, coal, freshly paved tar, cedarwood.
Ah, the witch’s favorite. In small quantities, the belladonna plant can help you sleep, or just let you relax. In large quantities, though, it’s downright deadly. Just stay away from the berries. That’s good life advice. Belladonna means beautiful lady, so its scent needs to be enticing, sensual, and a little bit deadly. We think this blend of rose, musk, and leather, is just that: a little sweet, a little deadly, and definitely sexy. Plus, it makes us think of Practical Magic, and there’s nothing wrong with that. And, you can confidently tell your coven: “The Belladonna is in my bag.”
Scent notes: A freshly picked red rose, old leather, white musk.
They always say that poison is the woman’s weapon. And they’re not wrong. If you want to smell like the main character in an old book full of deception, murder, and other cheerful things of that nature, then Arsenic is the scent for you. A blend of old, yellowed books, antique lace, fresh vanilla, and a sharp hint of gasoline, Arsenic is perfect for swanning around your gigantic Victorian house, enchanting all the neighborhood men before you… accidentally… slip a little bit of poison into their afternoon tea. Oops, how did that happen? No, officer, I would *never* hurt a soul! Never! Here, have a sip of tea, won’t you?
Scent notes: antique lace, gasoline, old books, fresh vanilla bean.
Wormwood has been linked to hallucinations, especially when consumed in absinthe, that delicious, witchy liquor. But, like many delicious things, wormwood in large doses is toxic. We’re willing to take that chance with this heady, spicy blend we’re calling Wormwood. Frankincense, sage, cloves, and anise come together to create a smoky cloud you can wear and feel like you’re a courtesan in a 1920s Paris nightclub, drinking absinthe, wearing a corset dress, dancing on a bar until you mistake a young, handsome poet for a young, handsome duke and fun mishaps occur! We’re gonna skip the whole “dying from tuberculosis at a young age” thing though.
Scent notes: anise, freshly ground cloves, dalmatian sage, frankincense.
Yes, okay, we know that nightshade and belladonna are basically the same thing. Belladonna is in the nightshade family and is usually called deadly nightshade. (You may remember this from the legendary film The Nightmare Before Christmas.) But, can you really blame us for using both terms as inspiration? Yeah, we didn’t think you would. Nightshade is a potent blend of whiskey, ylang ylang, amber, and sandalwood that’s guaranteed to intoxicate everyone who smells you and put them in a trace. Perfect for those days when you just need everyone to listen to you and obey your every whim.
Scent notes: a big glass of whiskey, sandalwood, amber, real ylang ylang.
