My kind of exhibit!

NY Museum Stages First ‘Scent’ Exhibit

Chandler Burr calls his works ‘olfactory art,’ and says he’s not a freak—he just uses his nose more often and more carefully than the rest of us. Blake Gopnik reports.

What a fantastic idea! The very thought stirs my scent loving soul… I wish I was closer so I could attend. Although if I were making real wishes I would wish to share a bottle of red wine with Chandler Burr and talk scent for an afternoon.

I personally disagree with his idea that “a thing must be artificial; it is impossible to create art entirely with nature”—but I understand the point he is making.

I love all kinds of fragrance; traditional as well as all natural.

There is room in my world and my shop for both!
What fragrances move your soul?

For me this fall I am continuing my love affair with Cinnamon.

We want to celebrate this rare occurrence with limited time Blue Moon Fragrances!
OK…Are YOU ready for the BLUE MOON tonight? We are *SO* excited we are featuring these fragrances and having a great sale starting NOW!

Limited time fragrances:
Blue Moon: Only once in a Blue Moon will you find a fragrance this good! Custom Blended here-you will not find this exclusive candle ANYWHERE else! Strong, sweet, dark and smoky, perfect for fall nights. Rich sweet caramel, infused with a dash of cardamom and a hints of honeyed tobacco pipe smoke. Bellissimo!

Aqua Di Luna:Top notes of lavender, rosemary and menthe are freshened by bergamot. Middle notes of jasmine, geranium, sandalwood, iris and oakmoss lead to bottom notes of musk and ambergris.High Tide: Let the Moon’s pull lure you into this fantastic fragrance… Newly fallen coconuts halved to reveal creamy, sweet perfection!

Blue Mousse: The perfect decadent dark chocolate! Blended intense raw cocoa, a splash of sweet cream and just a hint of torched sugar… drool worthy!

The Blue Hour: The blue hour comes from the French expression l’heure bleue, which refers to the period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light at this time of day. Soft Sweet Pea, Blackcurrant for contrast and Bilberries for charm, the deep warmth of Rosewood, gentle Almondwood, richest Sandalwood and French cedar. Transformational.

Full Moon: Almost impossible to describe, this strong and complex fragrance oil has notes of resins, patchouli, vetiver, myrrh, herbs, woods grasses and anise. It has a smoky depth accented with a fresh and herbal top-note, and has unisex appeal. Perfect for dancing in the light of a full moon.

Celtic MoonSpice: A wonderfully fragrant blend of warm spices, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. This reminds me of being snuggled inside a cabin in front of a cozy fireplace on a cold crisp fall night.


What is a Blue Moon anyway?

“O, swear not by the moon, th’ inconstant moon, That monthly changes in her circled orb…” -Juliet, Romeo and Juliet, 2:2:115

The night walked down the sky with the moon in her hand.  ~Frederick L. Knowles

There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.  ~George Carlin, Brain Droppings, 1997

Moonlight is sculpture.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery.  ~Joseph Conrad

Look how the pale queen of the silent night
Doth cause the ocean to attend upon her….
~Charles Best, “A Sonnet of the Moon”

How like a queen comes forth the lonely Moon
From the slow opening curtains of the clouds
Walking in beauty to her midnight throne!
~George Croly, Diana

Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
~William Shakespeare

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!

“As for rosemary, I let it run all over my garden walls, not only because my bees love it but because it is the herb sacred to remembrance and to friendship, whence a sprig of it hath a dumb language.”

“The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it. You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.” 
― George Edward Moore

Check out our Night Spirit fragranced Candles & Perfumes:This mystical scent embodies the warmth of the communal fire, the dry sensuality of the dusty Desert earth, the piercing clarity of the bright evening stars, and the soft purple blanket of Winter night.

A well-balanced bouquet of nutmeg and cinnamon spices, black pepper, and chili, blended with warm amber, earthy patchouli, cedarwood, and soft, sweet vanilla.
