This Absinthium Perfume is one of the original line of all-natural botanical perfumes I released a year ago. It actually contains the essential oil of artemisia absinthium aka wormwood. Oil of wormwood has a beautiful dark green, bitter, herbal scent which I have sweetened with the essential oils of more sacred herbs and hand blended them into a perfume accord of fragrant artemisia plants.
It smells headily of undiluted, intoxicating absinthe. The distinct scent of crushed fresh wormwood leaves, light on the traditional anise note, but heavy on the herbal notes and sugar cubes.
Wormwood is protective and purifying, strongly so. It can repel many evils and protect from many others. It’s scent is cleansing and intoxicating and it is indeed related to the fragrant sages and wormwoods of the artemisia plant family. It is said to enhance psychic abilities, divinatory rites, dreams, communication with the ancestors, and to help draw upon the well of inspiration.
This fragrance can be used to align yourself with the divine via its divine scent. Use it to aid in trance work, divination, dream work, ritual, and soul flight. Perfumes have also long been an offering to deities and graves.
