ALL SAINTS 2010
Based on a venerable French pontifical incense blend: monastic frankincense and myrrh, Damascus rose, Russian gardenia, cassia, and lily of the valley wafting on a chill Autumn wind. A celebration of the glory and suffering of the saints and matryrs of the Church.
ALL SOULS 2010
An incense blend that invokes the higher qualities of mercy and compassion, mingled with the soft, sugared currant scent of offertory soul cakes.

Puffy clouds of pumpkin candyfloss with a trickle of blackberry juice.
Eerie billows of spun sugar, fluttering white cotton, and sheets of cream.

DIA DE LOS ÑATITAS
Hydrangea blossoms and rose petals, cigarette smoke, cocoa leaves, and chichi.
FLOR DE MUERTO
The orange marigold, or zempasúchitl, has been one of Death's symbols since the pre-Columbian era. The yellow and orange petals are believed to represent the rays of the sun, bringing joy and light to the souls dwelling in the realm of the dead. These flowers surround Day of the Dead altars to guide the spirits to their offerings.
This season's Ridiculous Scent! Creepy like Creepy and as spooky as Spooky, this is the scent of a black cherry and coconut amaretto confection gently laced with saffron.
Black musk, bay leaves, galangal, bourbon vetiver, blackcurrant, and rum.
A circular pastry glazed with pink sugar that symbolizes the sweetness of life and the certainty of death.
HUESOS DE SANTO 2010

PUNKIE NIGHT 2010
To this day, that night of foolishness is still celebrated! This is a light-hearted scent: apple orchards, bright cranberries, and a touch of warm cider.
Truly the scent of autumn itself -- damp woods, fir needle, and black patchouli with the gentlest touches of warm pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, allspice, sweet red apple and mullein.
SUGAR SKULL 2010
Vibrant with the joy and sweetness of life in death! A blend of five sugars, lightly dusted with candied fruits.
THE WILD SWANS AT COOLE
October twilight. Falling leaves breaking the stillness of cool water, with sweet autumn clematis, feather-soft orris root, luminous white chypre, and muguet.
++ HALLOWEENIE: MNEMOSYNE
Flowering dogwood, weeping cherry, Korean pine, camellia, moonflower, Alberta spruce, arborvitae, and crab apples.

+ HALLOWEEN: GOTHIC FICTION, VOLUME 1
THE BYRONIC ANTIHERO
An aristocratic cologne of titanic passions, moody and brooding. This scent is dark with disillusionment and cynicism: a Victorian fougère and a dashing carnation boutonnière tainted by a cloud of khus, yew, and patchouli.
THE CREEPING MIST
A muculent, brumous, ill-omened scent: orris, yuzu, white ginger, linden flower, petitgrain, and lotus.
THE DECREPIT HOUSE
An architectural doppelganger reflecting a ruined soul: dilapidated planks of mahogany and cypress wood perched feebly on a grim foundation of long-dead leaves, black musk, patchouli, galbanum, tobacco absolute, fragonia, and oakmoss.
A HOWL IN THE DARKNESS
A scent evocative of a forest at midnight, with animalic brown musk, wild sage, Terebinth pine, black oak, and a chilly shock of terror personified by kunzea, cistus labdanum, verbena, juniper, metallic ozone, and white mint.
THE INFERNAL LOVER
A creamy, sensual, honeyed red musk.
Faustian depravity: daemonorops, rose-infused frankincense, vetiver, mate absolute, and clove bud.
A yellow smell. Old foul, bad yellow things. Honeysuckle, chrysanthemum, balsam, hydrangea, and helichrysum.
THE SHADOWY AND THE SUBLIME
A sudden and shocking insight into the vast, ineffable, overwhelming power of Nature, stirred by a vision or experience of perfected beauty and perfected terror, that changes the soul irretrievably.

Dusty white sandalwood, ragged cloth, and a dry, long-dead bridal bouquet.
Black rose, olibanum, dark musk, myrrh, blackcurrant, lavender buds, bourbon geranium, and amber incense.
