Odd and wondrous, these trinkets the suitors bring—astonishing flowers that look like paper birds, jasmine tea and black coffee, a costly box of chocolates with a red silk ribbon. You once saw a tiger in Bangkok, a riot in Paris, a machine at Coney Island that they said could really fly. The exotic butters in your fantastic hair, the livelihood you've adopted and the orchards you left behind. Your love is not a curiosity—it's a marvel. Make them earn it.

Circassian is a warm chocolaty fragrance with intriguing notes of black coffee and amber and blossoms. A multitude of different scent elements and weeks of methodical alchemy make Circassian no ordinary perfume blend -- it's a truly inimitable fragrance, part of my Calliope Crash line.

This listing is for a generously filled lovely little 1/2 ounce tin of Circassian solid perfume. It's made with pure beeswax from Honeyrun Farm -- http://www.etsy.com/shop/honeyrunfarm
Warmed on the skin, it's remarkably long-lasting.

The top labels on these tins are simply the representative images of the Calliope Crash family. The bottom label reads "DarlingClandestine solid perfume: in pure beeswax, rice bran & grapeseed oils". Also, the labels (like all DC's labels) are high-quality vinyl stickers -- so they're oil- and moisture-resistant and much slower to disintegrate in your bathroom or purse. :)

AS WARM WEATHER IS UPON US: If you're not familiar with the texture of my solid perfumes, they are QUITE SOFT compared with some other solid perfumes I've encountered. Don't expect them to be "waxy." I've deliberately made them soft because they're easier to apply and they're PACKED FULL of intensely scented oil. The texture is closer to that of lip balm (don't put them on your lips plz), so if they feel balmy, they're just fine!

If you find that they've melted enough to be actual *liquid* (I'm looking at you, Texas), then just set them upright in the fridge for a few minutes. They should revert to their original texture, which, again, is not hard, but "lip balmy." Again, they are NOT lip safe---please don't put them on your lips!

One more note: Because of the complexity of ingredients and the organic components of the solids, variations in color and charming little "swirls" are perfectly natural. Wherever possible, I make a point to photograph my most *imperfect* examples. Most of my pours are actually quite uniform in color, so don't be disappointed if you *don't* get swirls! ;)

Coming soon, by request of DC fans: solids in Serpentina, Step Right Up, Monstre Delicat, Falchion, Carny Wedding, Cloudswing, Tapadero and Inked. Pretty excited about it. :) Get updates on new products, exclusive offers and sweet discounts at Facebook.com/DarlingClandestine.
