Beowulf-The Water Burns Perfume Oil
$20.00 – $85.00
A few miles from here a frost-stiffened wood waits and keeps watch above a mere; the overhanging bank is a maze of tree-roots mirrored in its surface. At night there, something uncanny happen: the water burns. ---Beowulf (lines 1362-67)
A bitter, sexy, cold scent perfect for a hot muggy summer day. A sort of attractive dankness, very much reminiscent of Angelina Jolie's Portrayal of Grendel's mother...not what you were expecting. It's soothing but disturbing, dry yet cold/moist. Like burning water... the mystery of what can't be, or can it? The essence of earth and high greenery--a hint of smoke but smelled from far away, boxwood, galbanum, and a light hint of Mysore sandalwood. Green, dry, herbal, smokey.
