I know I say that about everything I buy here, but this has gotten a lot of use. It smells wonderful and fresh, and really enhances my creativity (and productivity as well). I love it.
The smell of this perfume is VERY incense-y. When I wear it, I laser-focus on any creative project I’m working on. It’s almost like a combo of Mercury in Gemini and Mercury in Virgo - focused, yet delightfully witty and on point. This is not something I wear casually, more so for creative stuff or anything that requires me to generate original ideas.
this is my favorite bpal from this series, and actually I guess my favorite s+s perfume so far. its taken a long time to grow on me as it is really much more complex than I originally thought and wears on me SO DIFFERENTLY than the smell from the bottle. the drydown just gets woodier & spicier & more delicate. I find it oddly calming and a bit hypnotic, like its not great for task-oriented focus but it is *excellent* for daydreaming which is perfect for the place it calls me toward.
I have used this BPAL for band practice and on a few Thursdays as a general Jupiter attuning device. I really enjoy the soft boost in confidence, creativity, good will, and big picture perspective that this oil encourages.
This perfume has one of my favorite BPAL scent profiles and puts the wind in my creative writing sails. Refreshing and intriguing, sweet and spicy. Good longevity and a smooth, sexy dry-down. This, and Multiple Storm Interaction are tied for favorite in this BPAL series. I don't reach for it often, but when I do, it always surprises me. Good stuff.
Its scent is divine and always brings a fresh air of new ideas. I love to pair it with Quicksilver Tongue when it comes to creative writing.
I've been working through a lot of dense historical/philosophical reading and analytical writing lately and this oil has been my go-to. Rather than becoming overwhelmed by the sheer volume of work in front of me, I've found myself better equipped to process and distill complex or otherwise convoluted ideas, leading to better overall problem-solving and critical analyses in my writing. For bonus points, I like pairing this with oil from the Exalted Mercury series for the reading/writing 1-2 punch.
This is one of my go-to perfume oils for research and idea generation. It breathes new life into problem-solving through brain storming, abstraction, lateral thinking, root cause analysis, analogy, and method of focal objects. Apply this oil and allow oneself to creatively address a problem in your life. An idea. And let whatever problem-solving technique emerges naturally. This together with Reperio imbues my work with genuine invention. I've used them together at work (an engineering firm) with client negotiations and data handling as well as with my own research on the imagination and depth psychology. The vanilla notes of the meadowsweet combined with the honeyed floral notes creates an olfactory accident of blackcurrant for me. Maybe it's that feeling of having blackcurrant juice as a child while I dreamed of being an inventor: reading encyclopaedias and feeling inspired at human ingenuity.
This perfume is very Page of Cups to me - youthful, creative, pure inner child energy. Wonderful for making art and seeing the world in a new light.
I adore this oil! It smells divine and is so helpful for my painting AND getting inspired and creative at my job. Really helps me get through those 2 pm slumps at work and those creative slumps in the arts. I will probably get another bottle!
