The essence of joie distilled.
Balancing the tray on one hand, I picked up the glass from which he had drunk and raised it to my lips. With the tip of my tongue, I caught a tiny drop of pure joie clean and spicy, at once icy and burning. Watching him wind through the crowd, I savored the the taste of it and the secret sharing; then, quick and guilty, I replaced the glass and continued on my rounds. – Kushiel’s Dart, Jacqueline Carey
Perhaps, like Phèdre, you are an anguisette/courtesan/spy, ready to unravel international affairs while conducting your own sexy affairs and you need the scent of joie upon you when you are far from home. Perhaps, you are simply tired from being in the heart of the dark of winter and would like the scent of joie to revive you and remind you that while perhaps you aren’t going to large masked parties full of tableaux, intrigue, and flirtation, you are still worthy of having the oiled perfume of joie upon your breast to lighten your spirit and remind you that adventure is still possible. Even if it may not require a months long voyage by sea. Give yourself a moment to embrace your inner anguisette/courtesan/spy and see what doors the (Goddamn) Universe (Herself) will open for you when your heart is open. To the Longest Night! To the New Year! To you!
The headiness of honeysuckle and orange blossom, the sweetness and sparkling of your favorite champagne draped over the sharpness of pine boughs and cedar wood.
Suitable for would-be anguisettes of all genders.
Joie has been created in my enchanted workshop, Spare Oom. While Joie can simply be worn on pulse points as a fragrance oil, it can also be used in Venusian planetary work and setting intentions ritualistically for the new year.
Each oil comes in a 5ML glass amber bottle with a Euro dropper lid. For a visual reference, the bottles are the same size as the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab bottles.
