The Phantom Wooer

$4.50$19.50

A ghost, that loved a lady fair,
Ever in the starry air
Of midnight at her pillow stood;
And, with a sweetness skies above
The luring words of human love,
Her soul the phantom wooed.
Sweet and sweet is their poisoned note,
The little snakes’ of silver throat,
In mossy skulls that nest and lie,
Ever singing “die, oh! die.”

Young soul, put off your flesh, and come
With me into the quiet tomb,
Our bed is lovely, dark, and sweet;
The earth will swing us, as she goes,
Beneath our coverlid of snows,
And the warm leaden sheet.

Dear and dear is their poisoned note,
The little snakes’ of silver throat,
In mossy skulls that nest and lie,
Ever singing “die, oh! die.”

A lifeless love song: stargazer lily, bone dust, tomb mosses, buttonweed, moonflower, and honey myrtle.

    Wet, it’s damp moonflowers, freshly bloomed at nightfall: lemony, in a way, yes, but not at all sour…distictively moonflower…I grew them for years and they totally tug at my heart. I smell their pallid greeness and can hear crickets…feel the humid air…walking home, breathless…in love with the shadowy, dangerous night, and excited by my solitude. The other florals are a faded yellow, and honey sweet. This moss note is divine: so velvety soft, earthy, and wet. I love how alive it smells, how floral, yet is a believable skin scent. The powdery drydown is a earthy, musky lullaby.

    A very nice, soft “china rain” sort of scent. This lasts a long time on me and stays present but subtle. It does have a sort silvery quality to it, like a moonlit garden. The scent lives up to its name nicely.

    Wet: A beautiful floral scent! Light and delicate, I’m not sure what stargazer lilies and moonflowers smell like, but it’s very pretty. There’s a dry bite afterwards, I think maybe that’s the “bone dust”?

    Dry: I love this one – very pretty florals, a little bit powdery but overall a scent I would wear regularly.
