George Eliot


George Eliot's real name was Mary Ann Evans, but she wrote her wonderful books under the afore name to escape being thought of as a lightweight "silly woman writer."

Lightly educated, she completed her education and taught herself how to write well and even landed a job at the Westminster Review. Unfortunately, she was a very homely woman, and you might have thought that the rest of the story was about her being lonely and lovelorn. Not so. George Eliot seduced by the power of her mind and actually had an alarmingly active love life!

She lived with a man who was married to another woman and introduced herself as his wife to all and sundry, making her his common-law wife (unless you were going to get picky about things like bigamy). This lasted for a very long time until his death. Then she was married to a man 20 years her junior! So, you see that looks are not everything, and "George" had the habit of seducing with her mind, the most powerful aphrodisiac of all!

Her novels are still published and include Middlemarch, Adam Bede, and Mill On The Floss.

What is George Eliot made of? Two kinds of leather, sandalwood, an uncharacteristically sweet oude, and black seed. It's strong, aromatic, spicy, leather-like, and not for the faint of heart. Something of an iconoclastic perfume!
