Wild strawberries, strawberry flower, vanilla-infused sugar, early summer grasses, and milky dandelion sap.

Bright summer flowers, fresh herbs, and a bit of citrus rind dampened by the scent of morning mist and rain.

LITHA 2009
Golden honey, moss, honeysuckle, chamomile, parsley, white gardenia, frankincense, carnation, vervain, gum arabic, yarrow, liquid copal.


A summer bonfire, with frankincense and myrrh, bay rum, and white rose.

(Forum exclusive)
Jasmine, vanilla, cedar, moss, marigold, purple verbena, candied tamarind, lime rind, margaritas, Dorian, Snake Oil, mal de ojo.

Hmmm... this all sound lovely, fruiyt and herby and light, but... will the moon be too sweet? June Gloom is a resurrection and I've had a sniffy of it, but do I like it enough for a full bottle? Litha I have a bottle from '06, but being a delicate scent, is what I have still true and did I like it that much anyway? I'm most tempted by St. John's Eve, though the rum is a wee bit worrying, will it overpower the rest (and how many frankincense and myrrh scents does a resin girl need anyways?) And the forum scent... there's my beloved jasmine heading the herbed parade, and marigold!! but the citrus? Hmm. Hmm. Hmm.

The Warrior Queens, on the other hand, I want them ALL. (I think I've finally come to the realization that I like berries, the darker the better, but not necessary fruits, especially not the citrus. Fig, pomegranate, I'm all over. Lime and exotic fruits, not so much.)

Oh, yes, sorry, I did, and meant to tell you I'd touch base with L about it. We can do it here (might ease transport issues for le bebe) if you like. And I'm always up for breadmaking of some variety - do you have the entire day free?

And we can snif bpal, too!

I do have the entire day free, so we could very realistically make some bread...
