TONIGHT @ 6 p.m. EST: Edge of the Night and Black Mallow

Black Vanilla, Soft Spices, Red Musk, Chypre Base

Use caution if applying the products near cuts or broken skin as the spice oils may sting.  If you are sensitive to spice oils, use caution when using the Burnishing Glace in the bathtub.  This blend contains only a small amount of spice oils but they could be aggravating to those who are very sensitive to them.

Edge of the Night is inspired by dark sensual perfumes for Women such as Guerlain's Shalimar and Yves Saint Laurent's Opium.  It is an elegant yet edgy blend best suited for evening wear when you'd prefer something a little more daring and sexy.  This is a perfume that loves to be paired with a bold red lip, stilettos and a leather mini.  It's beautiful, mysterious and fearless.

Edge of the Night is a blend of amber, oakmoss, aged patchouli, bergamot, black vanilla, a touch of red musk and buddha wood and a delicate blend of organic clove EO, star anise EO and cinnamon.  This fragrance also contains a nominal amount of lavender absolute and agarwood which are not a detectable notes in the blend.  It is well-blended and difficult to pick out individual notes but the drydown smells deep, ambery, musky, sweet and a little spicy.  On initial application, all of the notes are vying for attention at once with the bergamot top note emerging to the forefront.  The bergamot dissipates rather quickly as it makes way for the other elements with the focus on a generous spike of amber.  The spices lend an exotic quality to the composition without being dominant or overpowering.  It takes some time on the skin before the undercurrent of black vanilla becomes apparent.  It will manifest with a rolling sweetness and a touch of powder but will not overtake the other deeper notes.

Edge of the Night has become one of my personal favorites!

Offered as Perfume**, Burnishing Glace and Ganache*.  

**The perfume is pretty concentrated and therefore strong on initial application.  Apply sparingly the first time you try it so that you can gauge how much you prefer.  I've found a heavier application places emphasis on the deeper notes, oakmoss and musk in the blend for longer, while a lighter application encourages the soft powder element to come out faster (within about 15 minutes).
*For best results when purchasing the ganache: layering the Edge of the Night perfume on top of the ganache is recommended for the full experience of the scent and longevity.  Select it as your free sample at checkout if you don't wish to purchase a full bottle.

Marshmallow Infused With Star Anise Essence & Vanilla

Our beloved marshmallow infused with star anise essence and vanilla. Black licorice has a very distinct, dark, slightly spicy and very unique taste. The aroma of anise essential oil mirrors the taste experience of sinking your teeth into black licorice candies! For fans of our Warlock soap, this is not to be missed! On cold sniff, the anise is most detectable. On initial application, the anise is the strongest note but the mallow and vanilla adds a creamy sweetness that keeps the anise from being too sharp. As the perfume evolves on the skin, the anise melts further and further into the vanilla mallow so there is a true infusion of all components. Eventually the anise will wear almost completely away but its presence doesn't entirely recede. It lends itself for the life of the blend to morph the vanilla and mallow so that they aren't flat but rather a whole new and uniquely wonderful fragrance. It wears closer to the skin which means your nose will be glued to your wrist because it is so delicious. Black Mallow does contain volatile anise essential oil which does not have the staying power of some of our synthetic components, however, this scent is so enjoyable that we don't think you'll mind touching up to refresh! (It lasts a few hours on me, especially when I rub some on the tops of my arms instead of just my wrists). This scent is ultimately very smooth, creamy, rich and wicked all in one stroke.

Offered in perfume only.
