The Golden Sovereign

The Golden Sovereign

$45.00

In memoriam of the much beloved Heart of the Lion, Elizabeth Barrial of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Twilight Alchemy Lab ritually crafted a limited edition perfume oil during the Golden Sol series election. Of it, she shares —

There’s a quote that floats around the internet periodically, attributed to Gianni Versace: In the past, people were born royal. Nowadays, royalty comes from what you do. Whether or not this is a legitimate quote, the sentiment perfectly encapsulates the essence of the Golden Sovereign. We are all born with access to our own kingdoms, and it’s up to each of us to expand that kingdom to the benefit of all, to rule benevolently, and to use our power to not only lift ourselves up, but to lift up those around us – especially those who are not empowered to help themselves.

This is an oil of power, but specifically it is an oil of power accumulated and wielded benevolently. It amplifies charisma, heals while providing healing to those in your sphere, amplifies authority, and brings opportunities for you to use your personal power to commit acts of true generosity, kindness, and compassion.

The Golden Sovereign helps you to accumulate a bounty of resources and reserves to sustain and enrich you, so you can comfortably share the bounty of your good fortune with others.

This is your kingdom; govern it with kindness and love. Be royal – not only because of who you are, but because of what you do.

    This oil is my new favorite S+S product. (I have several now). This is truly so uplifting. I was diagnosed with anxiety during my Saturn return (Saturn in 12th, imagine that) and I’ve done a lot of work to try to be mindful of how it manifests or what triggers it. When I apply this oil and pray or meditate with it, I literally feel like I’m standing in the Sun – so wholesome and healing. I use this on myself during my Solar devotions and that bright, hopeful energy carries me through the entire day.

    On a Sunday, within 8 hours of the Full Moon in Leo, I arrived at a daylong dance + art retreat. I anointed myself, including on the crown, with this delicious scent and wow! I’m deeply in love with it.

    Cold and wintry outside, the sun streamed in through one easterly window, in which I danced for nearly 2 1/2 hours. It took effort to move away and allow others to dance in the sunshine, the pull was so strong.

    Inside, I felt uncharacteristically free – not in a wild way, more in a free-to-be-me sense. An idea I’ve played with for years suddenly dawned with a new approach and even though the point of dancing for me is to get out of the head and into the body, I enjoyed the unfolding of creative inspiration as the vision formed more clearly.

    At the lunch break, several attendees commented on my bright energy and one spoke to how the sun made my blonde hair shine like a summer wheat field.

    When time came to make art, which I’ve been resisting for years despite a cabinet full of supplies, I had no self-judgment or holding back… I just flowed with the exercises.

    As I experiment with your different creations, what I’m most pleased with is the energetic imprint… so that once I try something, I have a new reference point for what’s possible in how I feel. This is everything,

    This oil is like bottled Sunlight.

    It’s like stretching out in the sun on a warm day, beneath a gigantic tree, with a beloved book in hand. It’s a hug from your Grandfather, or Grandmother. It is a cup tea for your soul.

    Magically, it is healing, provides energy, just as if you were a plant receiving photosynthesis.

    It smells of amber right out of the bottle, all golden and rich. It’s definitely good for taking the edge off of heavier days, just to get through them! Can’t wait to see how far this goes.

    This was my first S+S purchase, though I’ve bought BPAL perfumes for years. After finding S+S I figured a BPAL crossover purchase based on a Leo placement (I’m a Leo rising) would be a good place to start and wow!!! I wasn’t wrong – speaking just about the scent: this is one of my favorite perfumes ever, it’s light and honeyed but still has a deeper amber scent that makes it a little sexy. It gives me such a feeling of joy, warmth, and happiness that I kiss the bottle when I close it because I adore it so much.

    I’ve worn it pretty regularly since my purchase; however, when I first bought it I did so because I (very luckily) landed a job at a big time publishing house. I was in a position where I had to learn a lot fast and I wanted something to help give me an aura of confidence and charisma. This perfume has certainly helped me to do just that. The first day that I wore it, my supervisor absolutely praised my work on an important project that I completed. Since then, I’ve been regularly complimented by my supervisors – my coworkers have even noted that I seem like I’ve been at the company for much longer than a few months. My supervisors also pushed for me to receive an end-of-year raise even though I’ve only been working there a short time, and they’ve already discussed plans to help promote me to a higher position in the next year. A good part of this, of course, has to do with my own effort; however, Golden Sovereign has helped me gain the confidence and charisma that I definitely did not have earlier on. I love this perfume dearly and I will wear it for as long as I can.

    I’ve never had oil like this in my life! The depth, layers, qualities and sheer ‘aliveness’ of it are exceptional. I feel wonderful wearing it; like the entire spectrum of the warming sun enfolds me with wings of protective amber and settles a royal crown on my head. Highly recommend this product for connecting to our own sovereignty.

    I have always admired the BPAL scents, but this is the second S+S series oil of theirs i have used regularly. Every time i open it, the scent leaps forth like a glorious unbridled beast of light surging against the edge of night and vanquishing all the shadows with it’s warm rich notes. It lifts and lightens my day in the work of days in these dark mines on the edge of collapsing empire. Like light the aromas persist tickling the senses at the turn of the head, or sudden gesture of the hands, even when it’s worn at and warms the heart. Powerful medicine for a Saturn swaddled fish in the depths.

    I’ve been using BPAL and TAL oils for almost a decade now, so I’m very familiar with the high caliber of Beth Barrial’s art. I have to say, her collaborations with S+S have been especially exquisite and TBH Golden Sovereign is a masterpiece.

    I’m a mother of two teen boys, and I also work at a high school. This oil is one that I find myself reaching for almost daily. It smells amazing, but beyond that I find myself interacting with the kids – my own two included – in a much more patient and kind manner. Applying it to my heart center makes me feel instantly calmer, more grounded, and yet somehow elevated. It comforts me. It expands me.

    Golden Sovereign is a blessing. I love it so, so much. Thank you, Beth, and thank you Kaitlin!

    As someone who experiences “winter blues” I wanted to begin preparing for the dark half of the year by working with sol energy more. This oil was such a perfect way for me to start! It smells incredible, a little spicy and very warm; I apply it over my heart chakra in order to channel strength of heart. Strength is my lifepath tarot card, so really this oil has offered me numerous inroads to spiritual growth–not only by keeping my heart and mind open, but granting me the ability to be confident in what I know. If you are like me and worry about pleasing other people, finding yourself doing and saying things you don’t agree with just because you want to keep the peace, I recommend this oil; it will greatly aid you in standing your ground without making you feel guilty for disagreeing/ pushing back.

    This perfume is absolutely divine! I have been applying it before major outings and teaching classes and I find that it helps me exude confidence and feel radiant and joyful.

    The fragrance smells heavenly and is long-lasting. It has assisted me in embodying my authentic self and with healing childhood wounds. I cannot recommend it enough. I love it!

    This perfume makes me feel amazing! Not in a false sense either, more like reminding me of all my good qualities. I feel luxuriant (thought not excessively so) and radiant when I put it on. I have found I actually like putting a bit in my hair.

    Scent-wise, it layers very nicely with many of my other perfumes. It partners up nice with my more expensive stuff (Marc Jacob’s “Decadence”) as well as my cheaper roll on perfumes and solid perfumes (with scents including dragon’s blood, cinnamon+cardomom, etc). It’s not too overwhelming, and it’s not too light. The scent lasts throughout the day, and even longer.

    Overall, this perfume has been very fun to explore. The scent and the qualities have been a fun, unfolding experience, like flower petals taking their time to reveal the beauty you know they can radiate. I suspect the perfume has caused me to do the same thing.

    I just received this oil and I am in love! I have seen a change in my mood and overall confidence in only a few days! I plan to use this along with my Regulus oil and watch the magic happen! XO

    This perfume feels like a sunrise when applied on the chest, and is at once calming and empowering. I recommend it to anyone wanting to experience more fullness and strength from the inside-out. Has a very interesting, exalting effect for meditations.

    To me, The Golden Sovereign codes to Heart of the Lion, but with a smidge of Jupiter’s influence from The Fulfiller Who Whispers Words of Wisdom. It’s this golden robe, more than a golden crown. It’s powerful, golden, and solar. So much solar. It’s about stability, generosity, and embracing the bounty that is life. To me, it smells like frankincense, herbs, amber.

    I wore this to a work retreat to bolster my sense of generosity, and also ability to be in a space with lots of people for several hours. It worked well for me.

    The smell of this perfume is amazing! Not too overwhelming, but carries a definite presence. I have put in on a few times when I was going places where I feel my confidence will be shaken. I’ve found that it largely makes me feel immune to the way others may be thinking of me. It’s not necessarily that I suddenly feel like a 100% boss, but I feel unbothered if I know that the people around me don’t agree with what I’m doing or don’t think I belong where I am. It is very calming and I love putting it over my heart space!

    A truly amazing fragrance experience! The first time I wore this perfume oil, the scent of frankincense was overwhelming. I actually wondered if I would be able to handle smelling it all day. But!! Every time since then that I’ve applied it, the scent has been gentler, more softly balanced, and more subtle. Vanilla emerged, and a glimmer of citrus. The warmth of amber and cedar. It’s quickly become one of my favorite fragrances, and I look forward to seeing how my experience of it continues to evolve and develop.

    Magically, this oil bolsters my confidence and aplomb noticeably, making me both *appear* and *actually be* more competent — a sort of soothing me out of my own way. There’s a sense of comfort and also of a deep, peaceful assurance that accompanies the fragrance, which has made it very valuable to me in stressful work situations and performance Testimonials already.

    The scent is incredible, a combination of candied orange peels, an Egyptian temple, and something foresty or musky. I smelled it and immediately was overwhelmed by happy childhood memories I hadn’t thought about in years, and started to cry. Putting it on made my heart feel lighter. I wore it to class and afterwards a classmate came up to me and gushed about how valuable my contributions to class discussion were. That day I had mostly spoken about how intergenerational trauma is used to maintain oppressive systems of power, which sparked a realization in me that healing one’s trauma is essential to the rightful use of power, so of course these things work together in magical intention. I also have been getting a lot more positive attention on Twitter since purchasing the oil. Love it!
