ENDRIS NIGHT: "Thys endris nygth I saw a sygth, A stare as brygt as day." This is from a 15th Century English Carol that is rarely performed today. It is a beautiful song and the Old English lyrics reference the Virgin and Child with grace and tenderness. This blend is meant to evoke images of a long ago time, during a night of rare splendor and beauty. Sweet frankincense, Arabian sandalwood, a very rich deep red musk, orange blossoms, and kisses of cloves make this a magical scent for the holidays and year round also.

SILVER BELLS: I have made this oil in memory of my mother, who made every holiday a delight. The house would be filled with the wonderful aromas of foods and treats and every room would be decorated ever so magically. Her gorgeous and trained soprano voice filled the house with the sounds of the Holiday carol she had sung to me since I was an infant : Silver Bells. Savor your memories of the season as you enjoy this lovely perfume blend of rich rum, cinnamon, nutmeg, deep vanilla bean, delicious cream, sugarplums, and a touch of a very sweet and light mint. ...." And on every street corner you'll hear...Silver Bells."

VICTORIAN SLEIGH RIDE: Travel back in time to a winter wonderland of snowy trees, listening to the sounds of the horses’ bells and breathing in the crisp air as you are whisked away down snowy covered lanes in a sleigh full of gaily wrapped parcels. This is a crisp and delightful blend of Candy Canes, hollyberries, sweet spiced whiskey, cedarwood, sage, frankincense, and a touch of cream. Happy holidays!

WASSAIL: The old English wassail song, Here We Come A-wassailing (or Here We Come A-caroling) refers to 'wassailing', or singing carols door to door wishing good health and happiness. Beggars and orphans used to dance their way through the snowy streets of England, offering to sing good cheer and to tell good fortune if the householder would give them a drink from his wassail bowl and let them stand for a few minutes beside the warmth of his hearth. The wassail bowl itself was a hearty combination of hot ale or beer, apples, spices and mead. Today wassail is sometimes made with wine and other fruits. Sit by a warm fire and imagine the carolers of old England coming by to wish you cheer as you give them a drink from your wassail bowl...the aromas of red wine, apple wine, ale, sweet oranges, fruit and cloves, along with delicate touches of frankincense and myrrh... capture your senses.

SATURNALIA: Saturnalia was an ancient Roman Festival that took place between December 17th and December 23rd, around the time of the winter solstice. Catullus describes it as "the most joyous of festivals and the best of days during which normal business and many prohibitions were suspended, servants waited on masters, paper robes and masks were worn, gifts were exchanged, and there was a period of general relaxation and festivity." This scent evokes the feeling of ancient ritual and festivity with an earthy mix of Arabian sandalwood, Sudanese frankincense, and patchouli blended with the aromas of roasted chestnuts, almonds, and hazelnuts, and finished with cranberries and sweet cake.

THE HOLLY AND THE IVY: The Holly and the Ivy" is an English traditional Christmas carol. The carol contains intermingled Christian and Pagan imagery, both depicting the Ivy as feminine and the Holly as masculine. This is a slightly spicy and crisp unisex scent that has both feminine and masculine aspects: the scent of festive hollyberries is mingled with the beautiful and earthy greens of an inviting winter forest.

THE SUN KING: A popular ancient Winter Solstice carol is The Carol of the Unconquered Sun, as the Solstice celebrates the return of the growing sunlight hours now to come. A rich, warm, and deep archaic blend awaits you with dark frankincense, myrrh, spikenard, white amber, sandalwood, and a faint touch of eastern spices. A lovely unisex blend.

YULE LOG: A Yule log is burned in the hearth as a part of traditional Yule or Christmas celebrations in several European cultures. It can be a part of the Winter Solstice festival or the Twelve Days of Christmas, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, or Twelfth Night. The Yule log has been associated with having its origins in the historical Germanic paganism which was practiced across northern Europe. Plain and decorated Yule Logs are still burned in fireplaces today and the fire used to burn the log is always started with a remnant from the log that was burned in the previous year's festivities. The log's ancient symbolism is one of bringing prosperity and protection. Imagine a cozy fireplace hearth in a lovely log cabin, the comfort and warmth of the fire and the enveloping scents of buttery frankincense, oakwood embers, evergreens, and lingering cloves as you relax into the joys of the season. A great unisex winter blend.

YULETIDE REVELS: If you have had the pleasure of attending a Yule or Christmas Revels you will know how enjoyable they are. The revels refer to ancient tradition of dance, drama and storytelling rooted in ancient seasonal ritual and traditions. It is seasonal, celebratory, and participatory and oh so much fun to attend! This blend evokes the feel of the season and the joy of celebration with a base of warm chypre, stirred up with whiskey, sugarplums, cream, and a touch of sweet orange and cardamom. Cheers!!
