~DH Lawrence, The Virgin and the Gipsy, 1930.
Inspired by my favorite DH Lawrence novel, "The Virgin and the Gipsy" is my new Fall/Winter 2011 scent.
A luscious, warm, passionate perfume with Oud, Labdanum, Black Pepper, Frankincense, a hint of Clove, and other resins and spices, it is the perfect scent to wear while waiting out wintery storms with a lover! (Even if you're not wearing anything else at the time!)

The Virgin & The Gipsy perfume was reviewed by the Haus of Waft scent blog in January 2012.
"The Virgin and the Gipsy- Exotic, rich,classic- If you are somewhat familiar with classic literature, then you may recognize this perfume;s name as the title of a DH Lawrence work from around 1930. Kirsten has dedicated a perfume to this work, and it meets the grade. This is a luscious composition, but there is a relaxing, thoughtful nature to this perfume. Resins, particularly a elegant frankincense, take you to 1930′s Egypt, and a very light trace of clove reminds you that you just came from India. Oud, ( a very soft, womanly oud to my nose), makes you remember warmly hosted dinners you attended across the East and black pepper still lingers as a home favorite of yours. Slow, but steady rockrose is the spine of this family. All this comes to you ( in a Egyptian marketplace) as you pick up a well bound DH Lawrence work called “The Virgin and the Gipsy”. This sits on the skin for a good long time, but is never forceful or invasive. Staying so pleasant and harmonious the whole time it graces your wrist ( or whichever body part you choose). I could see this becoming a nature perfumery classic."
