“Why do you wait at your door, woman,
Alone in the night?”
“I am waiting for one who will come, stranger,
To show him a light.
He will see me afar on the road
And be glad at the sight.”

“Have you no fear in your heart, woman,
To stand there alone?
There is comfort for you and kindly content
Beside the hearthstone.”
But she answered, “No rest can I have
Till I welcome my own.”
“Is it far he must travel to-night,
This man of your heart?”
“Strange lands that I know not and pitiless seas
Have kept us apart,
And he travels this night to his home
Without guide, without chart.”

“And has he companions to cheer him?”
“Aye, many,” she said.
“The candles are lighted, the hearthstones are swept,
The fires glow red.
We shall welcome them out of the night—
Our home-coming dead.”
—Winifred M. Letts

A welcome for the home-coming dead: an incense of dried ivy and maple leaf with honeyed fig, black cypress, and grave dirt.

The skies have darkened, and summer’s last bright green leaf has turned. Halloween is here at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab.

    Yes. Yes. Yesyesyes.
    Straight out of the bottle is just bright green. Fresh leaves. On the skin wet, ivy all the way. As it dries the fig comes into play. Dry, something darker comes out, I assume cypress, but you’ve still got that sweet green in the background. A few hours later I get a smell that I’d relate to death, funeral homes, freshly dug graves with a wreath of flowers. It’s softer but somehow not any more subtle, still perfect amount of throw, I like getting a whiff of my perfumes as I go about my day.
    I really really love this, it reminds me of home, eating fruit with my best friend behind an abandoned house surrounded by trees that are covered in vines.
