There are several items at The Scented Djinn Etsy Apothecary that are on sale right now ~ Bitter Amber Parfum Body Butter at $8.80 for a half-ounce jar is more a solid perfume than a body butter, though the base isn't made with waxes, it is made with organic kokum butter and organic hemp seed oil. The scent, when rubbed on the skin, begins with high bitter-sweet notes of vanilla, benzoin and labdanum, then moves softly toward lush florals and ends sweet and warm and musky on the skin -- for hours. The perfume portion of this body butter began with a lush amber base of vanilla, benzoin, labdanum, clary sage absolute, ambriene and summer rose attar, then additions of tonka, rose, cananga, honey, lemon and fresh ginger were included; more was added to give the fragrance more of a floral heart, so in went jasmine sambac, an infusion of Brazilian jasmine grandiflorum, and lush, woody santal. Well worth the price of admission.
Other goodies on the chopping block are The Scented Djinn's Aliah Solid Natural Parfum made with key notes of cocoa and basil ~ sounds strange, but the scent combination is completely compatible and lush, like dark chocolate petit fours and fragrant honey infused tuberose tea; The Scented Djinn's Hemp Cocoa Patchouli Sandalwood Relaxation Butter made with the last little bit of our antique sandalwood, 65 years old, organic cocoa butter, bittersweet chocolate, organic hemp seed and sunflower oils, and a dollop of vintage patchouli oil ~ and there's Ever Green Yule Woods Parfum Pots up for grabs, Khamsa Solid Natural Parfum, and Jalali Solid Natural Parfum.
Go get 'em before they're gone.
