Perfumes that Tell Stories Real

pre-Witches in Fiction Giveaway, 4:  Avalon Eau de Parfum, sponsored by Alchemy & Ashes

Descend to me, and soothe my disarray
And so it’s done
Hear my words Avalon
~ “Avalon”, by Sully Erna

I smell the myth before the apples start growing out of the page. My thoughts taste rubied roses, dancing out of words that are forests, enticing me to fly into fairy-told highs. This perfume tells stories real—reaching from dirt to clouds, plunging paragraphs through heart cages, ripping gasps from lips and tongues, giving imagination all the feels.

at night, story me
with the scented myths of fall
and Avalon mists

a wee note…
– From the Island of Avalon (via the crafty portals of Alchemy & Ashes), this perfume brings to you the sweet fruity aroma of Apples, entangled with the floral scent of Rose, deepened by the exotic spice Cardamom, rooted by the orchard woods, and enchanted with a hint of musk (½ ounce Atomizer with info card in black organza bag).

A Circle of Healing and Love

pre-Witches in Fiction Giveaway, 3: A Circle of Healing and Love, sponsored by Eliora

I call on the siren of crystals, of colors, of metals… she, who soothes mind and bone with the song of her craft. Would you cool the crimson scorching my hip? Would the chant of your art lull what pains me from skull to feet? There are teeth biting my spine, chills crushing the insides of my knee… Would you spell silvery circles to quiet the hurts stealing my sleep? I call on the siren of crystals, of colors, of metals… Would you smother agonies that won’t let me breathe?

heal my soul with moon-
stone. With bright love and baubles,
craft me magics… of old

a wee note on healing…
– Our Eliora has crafted a silver-plated bracelet, which holds gemstones, symbols and colors of healing and love… a circle that is brightened by Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Rainbow Moonstone, Turquoise, Garnet, and Lepidolite… plus Tibetan Silver healing charms—Caduceus, Triquetra, Triskele, Pentacle, Ohm, and Spiral—and Czech crystal bead baubles… in gentle healing colors. The bracelet is 7.5” in length, with a lobster-claw clasp. And I’m considering fighting you for it.

– Leave me a comment telling me about your favorite stone(s). Why do you love it/them? (I, for instance, love onyx, bloodstone, and amber—which isn’t really a stone… but hey, love is tricky)
