Ginger - Red

  • Countess Willie Perfume Oil

    Sophisticated, dramatic, well-traveled, glamorous, and worldly, Countess Willie V. Piazza, owner of the French Studio, was a trendsetter in style and fashion. Countess Willie was an educated woman, a patron of the arts, and possessed an impressive library of rare volumes. She featured many historic jazz musicians in her House, including Tony Jackson and Jelly Roll Morton. Unlike many of her counterparts, she was known for having a kind heart and a generous, loving nature. She was fiercely protective: when a patron of her establishment, the nephew of a prominent New Orleans cleric, committed a heinous act of sadism against one of her ladies, Countess Willie shot him dead.

    Chocolate plum musk, red musk, amaretto, candied fruits, and red ginger.

  • National Emergy (sic) Perfume Oil

    A new form of presidential power was granted by the National Emergencies Act in 1976, and as you can see in this list provided by ABC News, nearly all of the Emergencies declared by U.S. Presidents over the past decades have related to international affairs, usually in response to crises that arise beyond our borders.

    We could argue for the next eight years whether each of these instances was truly warranted (this is certain scholars’ full-time occupation). What’s clear is that the so-called Emergency being declared this week is a nothing but an autocratic attempt to circumvent the healthy checks and balances established in the U.S. Constitution a document our President has sworn to uphold.

    Our government was specifically devised this way to keep power from concentrating in any one area, formed in response to life under monarchical control. This administration has done everything in its power to blur, erode, and reach beyond these limitations. This abuse of the National Emergencies Act is just the latest example of a President deliberately entering a legal grey area to further his own racist, xenophobic, and unpopular political agenda.

    Please take the time to contact your elected representatives, regardless of party affiliation, so they understand just how aware American citizens actually are when it comes to the issues of immigrants and asylum-seekers at the U.S./Mexico border.

    In the meantime, we offer this: the rising haze of American unease in the face of autocracy, fanning the flames of our activism and renewing our vigilance against the erosion of civil rights our own, and those of others whose situation grows more precarious with every passing week.  

    Climate change is a national emergency.

    Gun violence is a national emergency.

    Homelessness is a national emergency.

    The constitutional crisis that this administration is inflicting on the United States is a national emergency.

    Building a multi-billion dollar monument to racism is NOT a national emergency.

    NATIONAL EMERGY (sic)

    A four-alarm fire made of bold faced lies: bullshit-brown patchouli aflame with red ginger and pimento, sugared with the poisonous false promises of a racist autocrat, soured by hazard-yellow lemon rind.

  • War Perfume Oil

    She finished the drink, hefted the sword over one shoulder, and looked around at the puzzled factions, who now encircled her completely. ‘Sorry to run out on you, chaps,’ she said. ‘Would love to stay and get to know you better.’

    The men in the room suddenly realized they didn’t want to know her better. She was beautiful, but she was beautiful in the way a forest fire was beautiful: something to be admired from a distance, but not up close.

    And she held her sword, and she smiled like a knife.

    Red ginger, black spices, patchouli, honeysuckle, and three blood-soaked red musks.
