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

Serendipity

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!

Witch's Water



New novelty items specific to certain special occasions will be listed at The Scented Djinn soon. Our first listing is for Witch's Water, a lovely citrus and herb floral perfume water based on an old hoodoo Florida Water recipe. The Scented Djinn has taken the liberty of changing things up in this formulation, making it perfect for repelling goblins, ghouls, trolls, zombies, ghosts, vampires, and the occasional dragon. Not recommended for use on werewolves or Bigfoot(s) -- that's an entirely different water altogether.

Working On Perfume Oils

The newest, and technically first, in a series of oil based natural perfumes is being worked on ~ Yasmina, a gorgeous jasmine grandiflorum soliflore (which really isn't a soliflore at all since we add other elements to make the jasmine shine). Our new line of oil-based perfumes are made using organic jojoba oil and the finest essential oils, absolutes, concretes, waxes, and CO2's we can find.


Coming soon!

Etsy Did Something Funny

I was just poking around The Scented Djinn Etsy site, cleaning things up, updating stuff, and finally adding a credit card payment function, when I noticed that all my products were listed in CAD -- Canadian currency. So, without freaking out (too much) I did a little research and found out that sometimes when the credit card function is chosen, it temporarily changes the currency. I went into payments and currency and it was all in USD, so I saved it (again), then checked the site and it's back to USD. Very odd. I suppose I should watch these things in the future, yes?

New Shampoo Bar Readying for its Debut

Quite a few years ago, The Scented Djinn made and sold shampoo bars with such lovely herbs as amla and henna and beer. We've recently resurrected our shampoo bar notebook from the Bin-of-Many-Formulas, and created a new shampoo bar -- a cross between our famous Drunken Lout Shampoo Bar that was made with Guinness and honey, and one of our lovely herb infused shampoo bars, to bring to you (soon) Drunken Lout & Nettles Shampoo Bar. We also mixed things up a bit and made these using a hot soaping process instead of our usual gentle cold process soap making technique. This batch of Drunken Lout & Nettles Shampoo Bar is infused with coconut cream, pimento berry oil, and palmarosa, making it both masculine and feminine, which, as confusing as it may sound, actually works out beautifully scent-wise. We hope to have these on our Etsy site by early to mid-September.
