  • The Queen of Earthly Paradise

    The Fruitful Mother of Thousands that rules over the House of Man: golden bulbs bursting through the ground at the first light of Spring: sun-bright golden petals of daffodil, gladiolus, tulips, crocus, aconite and jonquil gilded with amber.

  • The Queen of Love

    O Venus, beauty of the skies,
    To whom a thousand temples rise,
    Gaily false in gentle smiles,
    Full of love-perplexing wiles;
    O goddess, from my heart remove
    The wasting cares and pains of love.

    Red rose petals, benzoin, honey myrtle and ambrette seed.
