The Lord of All Waters, Master of Wealth, Keeper of the Secrets in the Depths of the Ocean, Lord of the Lightless Deep, God of the Unknown. This secretive and enigmatic Orisha is symbolized by the Seven Seas, and the vast riches and unplumbed mysteries of the ocean are His. Though His reach extends over three-quarters of earth’s surface, He concedes the right to rule to Obatala out of respect for the age, wisdom and discretion of the venerable King of the White Cloth. Olokun is the depth of the ocean at which the sun’s light fails to penetrate. He is perpetual darkness, incomprehensible pressure, and his abode is the birthplace of mythical monsters. The ocean floor is also a Land of the Dead: in its darkness, all will fall to rest, and in this darkness is the Home of the Spirits, souls that, in the cold and dark, rest awaiting reincarnation. Olokun represents all things that remain unknown to man, and all questions may be answered in the halls of His Kingdom. In this, he holds sway over the power of divination. Though decaying matter settles in His home, the Kingdom itself does not decay or erode. He is represented by the mudfish and his favor is shown through red coral and shark spines.

His ofrenda is the scent of the lightless deep: the glorious, unknowable gloom of the ocean floor.

    :

    Everyone keeps saying this scent is masculine, but for me it’s completely the opposite. It smells a bit like the most delicate of laundry detergents. Reminds me of sheets and crisp linens. Reminds me completely of my mother when we would visit our relatives in Virginia in the summer. Although I love the scent, it doesn’t match my scent profile. Light and a little bitter.

    In the vial: Flowery, bitter, soapy.

    On *my* skin: Much more bitter-smelling, though pleasant. Reminds me of bubbles and bubble-bath.

    Definitely a masculine scent, but it’s very soapy.

    in the vial. Very odd. Definitely a clean watery smell but with something musty hiding in the background. Oddly in makes me think a little of green apple smell but not sweet. On me, smells the same really with the musty smell a little more pronounced and definitely more salty. It’s not bad, just unusual. I probably wouldn’t wear it directly on me (not my usual thing) but I might add it to an unscented liquid soap or the like.
