Body Incense at The Scented Djinn's Etsy Apothecary ~ February 2015

Body incense isn't something new to the world. It is believed to have originated in India a few thousand years ago, and progressed from there to other parts of Asia, China and Japan in particular. Body incense in Japan is a traditional form of perfume as liquid perfumes were rare there. Japanese body incense is called zukoh and is primarily made up of just a handful of aromatics, which include cinnamon, clove, camphor, and sometimes star anise, all finely ground to powder. Body incense is used by pouring a small amount into the palm of one hand and rubbing the hands together while cupping the incense, then the incense is spread through the hair, arms, neck, on the earlobes, or wherever, simply by rubbing it on. Body incense works with a person's perspiration to create a unique scent profile, and it is also often used as a natural deodorant with some people rubbing their incensed hands under their arms.

Our incense is created using the finest aromatics we can get our hands on, and then finely ground into a base of Hawaiian sandalwood. Thus far we've created one finished body incense and have two in the wings waiting to be completed. 2015 is the year of sacred scenting at The Scented Djinn.

Customer Review of a Custom Perfume Oil

"An amazing experience resulting in a perfume of beauty beyond words! Justine is incredibly gifted. With a few exchanges about some ideas and directions for the custom perfume, she was able to deliver to me all I had hoped for and more that I didn't even know I wanted in it! This was an outstanding experience, a stellar perfume, and an overall joy. And talk about accessible! I don't know anywhere else you can work on a custom perfume for this price. It's worth 10 times the price, easily. If anyone is on the fence about trying this, I wholeheartedly encourage you to jump at the opportunity. You won't be disappointed. Thank you so much Justine! Once again, I am a very satisfied customer and look forward to many more purchases at your store. It is always a pleasure."

Review of a Custom Perfume Roll-On Oil

This is the latest personal note from a customer who received her custom perfume based on a floral theme:

"*My perfume* smells like a magic garden where the magnolias are always blossoming, the orange trees are always full of fruit, white peacocks strut among the carnations, and roses of every color climb the walls of a palace of rose quartz and silver. It has so many different layers that it gives the feeling of walking though this garden, experiencing all of its wonders in turn. I'm pleased to have inspired such a lovely fragrance."

Creme Parfum ~ New at The Scented Djinn

For this newest Creme Parfum, we dug deep -- into the box of rare and exquisite aromatics, the box with the oldest patchouli and frankincense, the richest and rarest floral absolutes, and the strangest and most surprising scents in the world and came up with this little gem ~ an incense inspired floral creme parfum we call Coeur de l'encens -- the heart of incense. We used a gorgeous (never used in our studio before) 13-year-old finely extracted frankincense absolute, a luscious and sweet jasmine sambac concrete, and a generous amount of our limited Uttar Pradesh steam-distilled organic rose essential oil. All together, blended with the raw unrefined super sweet beeswax and soft creamy shea butter, this creme parfum smells like a fine soft powdery floral incense. Stunning and not to be missed.

Recent Reviews of Our Scented Wares

On Lavender Kyphi Supreme Incense ~ "I ordered three incenses; all were works of olfactory art, and I'm reviewing this one because it's my favourite. The scent is so serene, quieting the mind for meditation, carrying away stress, or perfuming the room before sleep. I love my entire order and am so glad to have this wonderful incense that is obviously handmade with such care." Oct. 17, 2014

On Modhlim ~ "A wonderful scent - mysterious and exotic. Makes one feel special wearing it." October 17, 2014

On Pywacket A Black Cat Parfum ~ What a Halloween treat! If you're an anise lover, you'll be smitten. On me, the dry down is a gorgeous combination of anise and bitter orange. Mmm..." October 6, 2014


I love serendipitous meetings! Yesterday, after spending a bit of time wrapping and labeling two small batches of soap, I walked down to the tea shop (Wilwand) to deliver some of the soap. After sitting at the tea bar for an hour or so, and drinking down three cups of a magical blend that was out of this world beautiful, I opened the bag of goodies to show the shop keep. I had brought three Sarasvati soaps, and seven Lavender Kyphi soaps, plus a sample of Sarasvati for the owner to use, and a sample of the newest compounded incense resin and parfum, Thracian Rose ~ well, the incense parfum got worn and burned, and four bars of soap were sold before I left the place! I do have to admit, though, that these latest scent wares have come out stunningly fragrant and hit the spot olfactorily with a lot of people. The reason I brought only three of the Sarasvati soap? I held back about half this batch for myself because it's just that darned good! Normally I keep the end cuts and the 'uglies', but not this time. No. This time I treated myself to big hunking lovelies loaded with earthy scent. Just the way I like them ~ ha!
