Warm spices intermingle with earthy Indonesian patchouli, Somalian frankincense, and Spanish labdanum to create a scent that transports you to someplace far away and perhaps in a different era altogether. I comprised this perfume using botanicals that were used in ancient perfumes and unguents. It is a celebration of the wisdom accumulated from our ancestors that walked this planet thousands of years ago.
One of the first perfumes I ever recall smelling was a bottle of my Maw-maw's (grandmother's) Opium perfume. I recall spritzing it and immediately being knocked off of my feet. It was spicy, warm, and overwhelming for my five-year-old tastes, but just right for her grand Sagittarian sensibilities.
Here I aimed to create something that smells bold, largesse, and deep. Sags are associated with travel, adventure, and philosophy. There is sometimes a desire for a life that is aligned with what we define as fringe or bohemian, but while others don that lifestyle as a trend, Sags choose the alternative because it aligns with their beliefs and philosophies.
This fragrance is for Sags who are strong in their Jupiterian energy. Those who are unafraid to explore where others fear to trespass. In the words of T.S. Eliot (who had his Mars and Jupiter in Sagittarius), "The end of all our exploring, will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." This is the ultimate mission for Sagittarius.
This one transports.

Perfumes are offered in four bottle sizes. They are all spray bottles; none of the bottles are roll-ons.
2 ml / 0.06 oz Sample Size
This is a standard sample size bottle that contains enough perfume for a few wears. This size is best if you are buying for yourself and you are unsure if you will appreciate the perfume. It's also a great size to start with if you want to try a few different perfumes before comitting to a larger sized bottle of your top choice.
10 ml / 0.33 oz Travel Size
This is a great travel size bottle. It contains about 120 sprays. This size is perfect if you are pretty sure that you will like the perfume based on the listed fragrance notes or you aren't a very picky perfume collector who has an idea of what works and what doesn't based on descriptions. Great for party favors or modest gift-giving.
30 ml / 1 oz Medium Size
This is a medium sized bottle that contains about 360 sprays. This size is perfect for gift-giving or as a personal buy if you want a bottle that will last for a few months.
60 ml / 2 oz Large Size
The most economical option, this is a large bottle that contains about 720 sprays. This size is also great for gift-giving if you are familar with the recipient's tastes in fragrance or you just want to go big and wow them. As a personal purchase, this size is recommended if you are already familar with the perfume and are in love.
Made with essential oils, each scent is gender neutral. There is no reason why feminine energy cannot appreciate woods and masculine energy cannot appreciate florals. That being said, care is given to balance the ingredients so that each scent appeals to each gender, based on general programming and beliefs in regard to what constitutes a masculine versus a feminine scent.
However, due to each individual's preferences, some may consider certain perfumes to be too masculine or feminine. For the most optimal experience, it is suggested that you relieve yourself of any programming that obstructs your ability to enjoy a fragrance due to limited beliefs regarding gender.
Made with clean ingredients. No parabéns, phthalates, synthetic dyes or toxic ingredients. Contains alcohol.
Replace fragrance after 12 months. Expired perfumes more than a year old lose the integrity of the original scent.
