Heart of the Lion
One fine morning, in the country of a very gentle people, a magnificent man and woman were shouting in the public square. “My friends, I want her to be queen!” “I want to be queen!” She was laughing and trembling. He spoke to their friends of revelation, of trials completed. They swooned against each other.
In fact they were regents for a whole morning as crimson hangings were raised against the houses, and for the whole afternoon, as they moved toward groves of palm trees.
– Arthur Rimbaud

I love this perfume so much. To start with, the smell is amazing - warm, incensy, and a little bit green. It's also very effective. The first time I wore it was for a magical class I was co-teaching, and my co-teacher and I (both wearing it) got great reviews. When I wore it for a major presentation I got a lot of comments on how relaxed I seemed and how much I seemed to be enjoying myself. (I was!) I wore it while helping someone update their resume and change how they presented themselves to the world. It helped me give good advice for them to shine and also not feel depleted myself. It's great on it's own, and I've also layered it with the Mercury Cazimi or Jupiter's Lightning waters.
I often apply this to my "mane", as in my beard and the silver sides of my hair above and by my ears, as well as the hair on my sternum, along the heart center. This smells and feels amazing. I feel regal, confident, powerful, warm and compassionate all at once. Seriously wish I used this at my last job. It's one of the most magical sundries In have experienced here, yet. I cherish the bit of this perfume I have left, as it is sold out and no longer in production. This perfume has guided me to have visions of a stellar Lion that has willed its way into an enchanted art piece, an Eidolon if you will. I'm motivated to continue working with Regulus in the other manifestations offered here at Sphere & Sundry
To say this oil is powerful is an UNDERSTATEMENT. I have anointed myself (usually neck + wrists) on multiple occasions when I needed confidence + general badassery, and the results have been amazing. When I wear this, usually in combination with the Mercury Cazimi Oil, to film astrology forecast videos, I receive comments on how I exude authority on the subject. I've worn this to a yoga teacher audition, where I was told I commanded the room in a way that the students trusted me, which was quite a compliment being that I am significantly (decades) younger than many of the other teachers.
For anyone looking to amp-up their self-love and self-confidence... This is for you. :) <3
This oil is uplifting and powerful. I noticed a difference as soon as I put it on, and received compliments from many people on the complex and warm scent.
I wore it daily, applying to wet hair before blow drying and on pulse points/ heart, for over the course of one full moon cycle and during that time there was a definitive shift in energy both personally and professionally. My mood lifted after a period of deep depression, and long standing personal issues cleared up significantly.
The oil seemed to boost my personal positive energy and helped me feel generally powerful but in a very good natured and beneficent way.
I also noticed ALOT of attention and interest from cats and other animals in general when wearing this oil.
I love it and am trying to use sparingly but finding it hard to stop applying it because it smells SO GOOD!!
I purchased this oil hoping it would provide me with some of the grounded confidence that I've been looking for. More than safe to say that it has! Whenever I put on this oil, I feel strong, confident, and unafraid. It's cool because I feel it gives me a softer strength - not one that would come in a massive burst and fizzle away, but more like a strength that I can be rooted to, that I can be sure will last. My outlook on things has certainly improved since getting this oil as well - I just feel better. I'm so glad that I made the purchase and look forward to purchasing more of the amazing offerings from Sphere + Sundry!
When I first saw Sphere + Sundry products it was on social media through InstaGram. What drew my attention was the presentation of their products. You could tell careful thought was put into making their products. I love the details in the images on how these products were coming into fruition. I started reading other people’s comment on social media and waited to have the comfort to splurge on myself for a bit. I made my first purchase and bought several items from their website. Heart of the Lion was one of the items and personal favorite. My transaction was processed without problems. The company was great with communication from when my order was received and processed, notification of shipment via email, and to having a quick delivery of goods to my mailbox. The quality and presentation of their products when I opened my box was professional. Who can forget the thoughtful piece of chocolate candy found on the center when you open your box?
My family and I started using these products for the past 30 days. The results of using their products were seen immediately that we started to notice positive and empowering changes in our lives. I started to see it as great investment on my behalf on the purchases that I made through Sphere +Sundry. I highly recommend their products to others. They are definitely life changing in ways that the unfolding experience is hard to define via pen and paper but to be experienced by the individual when using Sphere + Sundry. It’s quite apparent of their products are put together by professionals, who have expertise and skills that is reflected in their products. The attention to details of the materials and the proper planetary energies used, and the beautiful aromatic smell of their products has made me a returning customer. I have gone back to Sphere + Sundry to make more purchases due to the satisfaction and illumination that their products have made me feel. Thank you.
Heart of the Lion has become one of my most treasured substances. Love!
In the halo of Regulus/H.o.t.L, I’ve been able to successfully self-promote (something I’ve historically been allergic to!) in the cleanest, most straightforward, non-neurotic way with not a second thought about it and fantastic results.
And we’re navigating grief in our family right now, and I’ve found the strong bright energy of Heart of the Lion to be an incredible boon for powering on, finding joy and caring for my loved ones when my being otherwise wants to sink onto the bed.
This perfume is the most beautiful ally and I hope to never be without it.
Stand tall, straighten that crown, and don't take any crap from no one - Heart of the Lion, speaking pineapple quotes to me.
This is more of a nimbus scent, it doesn't have a lot of throw, and it smells mainly amber, resins, whiff of rose and green. It's just more like you put on a blindingly golden tiara on, that lasers away negativity at 10 paces away before it can even touch the hem of your skirt, robes, pants, whatever the hell you decide to wear.
In aikido, when you step on the mat, you own that mat, it is your space. Well, HoL sort of creates a mat for you to step on, and that's your kingdom, and nothing but respect for your mat.
This perfume oil not only smells beautiful and regal, but it has also helped me to feel more confident and in control of my life, bringing a much-needed dose of healthy yang energy. The initial scent impression is a gorgeous champa that isn't overbearing or heady, with an astringent green herbal background. As with all BPAL x S+S offerings, the scent is incredibly complex the more deeply I study it, and the energetic charge is immediately palpable. This is life-altering magic, and I'm so thankful it exists.
