When the Sun sets and the Moon rises, the secret and unfamiliar nocturnal world is revealed together with our hidden passions, desires, expectations and character traits, which during the day we hide even from ourselves. Our true face, our real “me” emerge only when no one sees us. Only then we truly become ourselves. Sometimes it might seem like a sudden change, but it simply is the release of our deeply hidden essence. The Moon also symbolizes illusions, false hopes, fears and depressive thoughts. When the Sun is away, the whole world looks mysterious and unfamiliar, therefore it might seem to be frightening or even hostile. However, it is not the nocturnal world that is hostile towards us – we ourselves created fears in our minds.

Key Fragrance Notes
White Musk, musk is a classical aromatic substance of animal origin, used in perfume-making and extracted from male glands of certain animals (most often musk deers). Since in nature animals use musk as a pheromone to attract the attention of the opposite sex, this aromatic substance has a similar effect on humans as well. White musk is a synthetic substance used in perfumery as an alternative to the red musk of animal origin in order to preserve nature and animal population. The aroma of white musk brings in vitality and energy. It is believed to be a potent aphrodisiac that stimulates senses, arouses and opens the most secret desires and the depths of soul.
Sandalwood, its aroma harmonizes and calms, helps to reduce stress and turmoil, is a perfect mood booster for people suffering from depression, fears, and everyday problems, helps in cases of nervous breakdown or anxiety. Eastern cultures believe that this aroma is particularly attractive to various deities, thus sandalwood incense is often used during meditation, sandalwood is used to build temples and sculptures of gods and prophets.
Opium, the scent is cold, resinous, acidic and bitter, energizes and raises alertness. It awakens consciousness, induces conscious dreaming, creates a connection with one’s ow subconsciousness, evokes and pulls up the most secret thoughts, helps to understand deep problems by revealing them, helps to analyze causes and effects of various events and situations.
Fig, fig trees are one of the earliest cultivated plants. Maybe even the earliest. The Bible tells of Adam and Eve, who, after eating the forbidden fruit, felt ashamed and covered their nakedness with fig leaves. Since then, figs have been considered a link between conscious and subconscious, a certain intermediary between the conscious and subconscious worlds. The aroma of figs is believed to boost the powers of clairvoyance and ability to listen to oneself. In the magic practices the fragrance of figs is related to conscious dreaming, intuition and premonition.
Water Lily, the Latin name of the water lilies family, nymphaeaceae is derived from the name of the Greek nymphs living in lakes, rivers and streams, therefore water lilies contain a lot of water and moon energy. Water lilies symbolize tranquility, purity, spiritual glow and modesty. Their aroma helps to fight earthly lusts and soothes the soul. During magic rituals the aroma of water lilies enhances imagination and the ability to visualize your goals.
