I loved the soild perfume of As Above so much the I decided to buy a larger oil version this time, when the sale was still ongoing. The scent is a bit different from the solid one, if I were to compare them, then I would say that the solid perfume is more rounded around the corners and softer, were as the smell of the oil version is more straightforeward (possibly from the difference in the ingrediens of the two). Both of them still smell amazing, it´s really up to preference to judge which one is better than the other. I like both, each for the quality that sets them apart.

As the last time, the shipping from the US to Sweden, was unbelievably fast and the package was also as beautiful. I don´t really know how to explain the perfume So Below (oil version) as well as Sheena has captured it´s essence in the text; "So Below is deep sweet earth, dark and yet it's also light; leaning casually against a soft fallen tree under a ray of light coming through the canopy. That dirt under your fingernails is a badge, and it is beautiful. " Quite an unisex scent, but it leans a but more to the masculine side, though I could also see females wear this (as I do), it´s a scent that you not think about much, but grows on you. Earthy and charming. Also, thank you Sheena for the gift, I appreciate it! :D

I love the packaging I got, it really shows the effort Sheena made in making it for me, from the personal note to the dried flowers and moss, and not to even mention the free perfume (Ghost Kiss). I also like the green wrapper inbetween the lid since it hinders the box from opening without any notice. Daughter of Swords smells straightforwardt, strong/powerful and also grounded. This description kind of sounds like a sword, which is kind of fitting to the name of the perfume. This perfume is not something I would wear alone, but together with another perfume. Not meaning that I don´t like it, but I love to use it with other fragrances that are to light, fruity and/or floral, to ground them, thus making them a bit more wearable for me.

My favorite of all the perfumes I bought, is As Above. The best way to descirbe it is already done by Sheena´s small story about it. It smells light, yet grounded, a tad floral but it has earthy notes. It´s such an intriguing smell since it´s like two clashing elements, yet they works so well together. The only downside with the solid balm versions is that you have to really rub it in to make the scent really come out.

What comes to my mind when I smell Cosmia is; dreamy floral. However it is not to overly floral, there´s something there that grounds not to much or to little, but just enough, so that you can smell the sweetness yet not feel like you´re being attacked. I like to wear this scent alone, or with a smudge of Daughter of Swords for a bit more earthy notes. Ghost Kiss (Free sample): Admittedly I haven´t tried my free sample of the Ghost Kiss since I´ve been experimenting with all the other perfumes, so I can´t say much about it, Oddly enough it remind me of the smell of freshly cut wood, a smell I hold dear to me heart because it´s a part of my childhood. It´s difficult to explaine the smell, it´s light, whipsy, it´s a tad bit strong at first but quickly fades away and leaves you with a linger.

About

the Background Check

For a chunkier story; please visit the Branch & Beak website!

The name Branch & Beak came from a poem that I wrote many, many years ago.

For Branch & Beak, it's all about plants, about the power of the mind and the spirit, and about reclaiming your power to heal and nourish yourself. I am just one lady within a beautiful and blooming community of lovely people. I spend my time studying plants, assembling altars, jewelry, writing poetry and working at a local apothecary among countless other things.

I work to create tools for practical everyday use, full intention ritual, ceremony, and/or to share with people you care deeply for.

Branch & Beak has had a store front on Etsy since the end of 2011 but I didn't really start listing products until February/March of 2012 and then didn't gain true momentum until just recently, so for the internet side of B&B it's just beginning! Outside of the internet I sell my products at different events locally and at an apothecary where I work.

To be true to myself, I am on the magickal path, working with intention and cultivating grace in energy. In my personal green/hedge witch journey I am getting to know plants a few at a time, first and foremost to respect and honor them, within nature and through out the process of use. I strive to project positive energy (with a side of sarcasm and sass), along side nourishment for mind, body, and spirit through plants.

Branch & Beak is a real labor of love, I strive to cultivate grace through positive focused thought and movement. I practice magick, including kitchen magick, so everything I use, especially the utensils, are thrice cleaned and handled with respect and integrity.

Organic ingredients are used when they are available, as for the herbs; I either grew them , purchased them organic, or wild-crafted them myself.

My intention behind Branch & Beak is to create practical spiritual tools that are used to nourish and empower the spirit body, the physical body, and the emotional body. I want to offer useful objects of beauty and strength to anyone and everyone, no matter what their path may be. A witch can be any gender, any color, any shape, any vibration. You also don't have to be a witch to enjoy or make use of the items I offer.
