The Witch Queen Perfume Oil


On a rocky mountain pass, on the southernmost slopes of Mount Belly, the witch-queen reined in her goat-drawn chariot and stopped and sniffed the chilly air.

The myriad stars hung cold in the sky above her.

Her red, red lips curved up into a smile of such beauty, such brilliance, such pure and perfect happiness that it would have frozen your blood in your veins to have seen it. “There,” she said. “She is coming to me.”

And the wind of the mountain pass howled about her triumphantly, as if in answer.

Wild plum, red musk, tuberose, calla lily, heliotrope, pimento, ylang ylang and beeswax beneath a dark haze of sinister purple-hued incense smoke.

The Stardust Collection.
This series is based on the characters, locations, ideas, and dreams found within the pages of Neil Gaiman’s extraordinary, haunting fairy tale, ‘Stardust’.

Stardust, the motion picture based on Mr. Gaiman’s story, was directed by Matthew Vaughn and features Claire Danes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert DeNiro, and Charlie Cox.

A heartfelt thanks to Neil, and to the kind folks at Paramount, for giving us the opportunity to create these scents!

    Mysterious and heady, Witch Queen is sexy, epic “NOIR”, and quite possibly my favorite within the Gaiman collection. This reminds me of walking into a magick shop full of crystals, wind chimes and purple smoke. The drydown is haunting, sultry, and adds a bit of overall mystic to this twilight jewel.
    An Oriental fantasy, she is the beautiful Witch who tempts you with sweet smelling berries that after one whiff transport you into velvet lined caves with amethyst caverns.
    Perfectly balanced and stunning, the notes swirl together: you are either dancing inside the circle in unison with the Queen, or you are crushed by her spell. This fragrance makes me feel powerful and yet playful, glamorous, witchy and beloved.

    The florals and musk combine beautifully, seamlessly, to give a fresh lift to the incense and dark fruits, and mellow into a complex accord that is all at once her own woman. The drydown is soft, slightly powdery, musky, creamy, honeyed floral. I was worried about the pimento note, as my only experience with them is in olives, but there is no issue with that here. It fades quickly but don’t worry, I can slather! If it were a color it would be “plum stained antique white”. I am so happy to have a tuberrose/lily scent that I can finally wear! This feels light enough for warmer months but still has a lot of body.

    In a six-way comparison skin test of plum-musk scents on my skin, this scent came out the winner, beating even Mme Moriarty in a contest that also included Snake Charmer Resurrrected, Hellion, Giallo, and Earth Phoenix. The elegant floral and beeswax notes made it stand out over the beloved vanilla-musk impressions of La Madame and Snake Charmer.
