Nocturne Alchemy / VApothecary July 2016 Decant Circle

Henchmen
~~~~~ CLOSED ~~~~~


Witness if you will a sunny clearing in the woods. Enter six weary travelers on their way home, taking what they’ve been told is a shortcut. But this clearing is more than it seems. It has four standing doors. No rooms, just doors. Intrigued, one of the six opens a door only to find himself looking into the past. A past filled with dinosaurs. Dinosaurs whom are now looking back at him. Hastily closed, he tries another door. The landscape beyond the door seems to be in black & white. Storm clouds swiftly hide a full moon only to illuminate the night with lightning. He looks to the others in wonder. Two wooden doors remain. The choice is theirs but whichever door they choose leads them into the NAVA ZONE.

You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of scent and sillage but of fragrant pleasure. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop, the NAVA Zone!


Get your decant circle notifications on Facebook! Join my group Nocturne Alchemy & VApothecary circles.


*A RAFFLE*
The end of July to mid August is a bittersweet time for me. I celebrate my late husband’s birthday as well as my own. In honor of our birthdays I have a gift for one of you. All members of the July Nocturne Alchemy / VApothecary decant circle shall be entered into a raffle for a full, unwrapped bottle of a past Limited Edition… Zodiac: Leo!
* Zodiac: Leo ~ Bay Rum, White Nectarine, Arabian Sandalwood, Aged in Summer Teak wood; with Kobalt Vanilla.
The names of all circle members shall be placed in a bowl & one shall be drawn just before the July decant packages are packed up to be mailed. I’ll reveal who it is in the Facebook group. So, choose some wonderful scents & get a chance to win a bottle of Zodiac: Leo, a long gone limited edition. :-)

Four years in the making, using Agarwood trees owned by Nocturne Alchemy, these are very special oils indeed. Each batch of Oudh oil is one of a kind, unique to its particular Agarwood harvest.

Aged Black Honey, Balsamic Honey, NAVA Honey accord infused into Madagascar Vanilla Beans and left to age - then pressed (like grapes or olives) releasing the perfume inside and blended into a smokey Indian Oudh with hints of our originally named: Arabian Oudh (more of this blend is added in Eclipse) and Egyptian Temple Oudh (from the original ICONS series).

Smoking embers and tendrils of wood and the liquid incense you've come to know and love from the Osirian Purnima perfumes.

An aged true earth Indonesian Black Patchouli wood oil, viscous and sweet and only gets better with aging; blended into a deep Indian Oudh with hints of our originally named: Arabian Oudh and Egyptian Temple Oudh (from the original ICONS series) and a drop of California Redwood Absolute.

Samar II - 0 decants, 0 half-bottles available ~ Spiced Vanilla Wood Oudh.

ICON Bottles ~ These are the fancy marble-esque bottles with crystal screw caps & glass wands that are used for the Oudh based ICONS oils. Usused, still wrapped in their boxes. Various labels.


Studio Limited ~
I AM decanting from the Studio Limiteds this month but ONLY the Woods. This is a one time only offer. As for the other Studio Limiteds, I would be happy to include any 5ml bottle or even half-bottle purchases in your circle order. Eventually other Studio Limiteds will be decanted but for now only the 6 listed below. You can find the entire list here: Studio Limited.

Amethyst - 0 decants available ~ A sweet Egyptian Sandalwood and a beautiful earthy Egyptian Teak. The teak I found in Luxor myself has a clean incense scent that will blend with your chemistry so give it a moment and the Sandalwood was imported from Alexandria and one of the most purest beautiful Sandalwoods I have ever come across. Blending the two with a touch of Arabian Sandalwood gives it a grounded mood like no other.

FULL - Diamond ~ Collecting specimen of Redwood and Cedar on my journeys in Egypt came to a few conclusions that the better redwood oil is outside of Cairo and more potent in the areas of Aswan and even near to Abu Simbel. Here I have chosen three redwoods with a touch of Egyptian Frankincense to bring forth a dichotomy of travel into a scent aura of standing inside the room that holds the Cheops Solar Barge and transporting you there where it stands in front of you built in the 4th Dynasty Kingdom around 2600BC and discovered in February 1954.

Santalum - 0 decants available ~ This is the beautiful Sandalwood imported from Alexandria infused with all Egyptian components: coconut husk, golden amber accords, golden Sandalwood resin, deep fossilized amber, golden Himalayan Cedarwood, gold Patchouli and a teardrop of golden Frankincense. Beautiful on its own or layered, this will age beautifully and become richer and more beautiful. The heart of this perfume is Sandalwood, the other components are minor players and only used to enhance and enrich the perfume scent.

Santalum White - 0 decants available ~ A rare beautiful Egyptian White Sandalwood that offers similar embodiment of Indian endangered Sandalwood while being original in scent all by itself and being self-sustaining along the Nile in the reedy parts of Alexandria and opposite the region of the original Santalum Sandalwood that we offer. This white (clear) sandal 'wood' represents the clean heightened embodiment of what is good about the scent of this delightful wood.

Santal Ombre - 0 decants available ~ Perfume of Egyptian Sandalwood, Indian Sandalwood, Arabian Sandalwood, with Ambre Ombre (Rare Black Amber, Black Patchouli Amber, Black Frankincense).

White Santal Ombre - 0 decants available ~ Perfume of Hungarian White Sandalwood, Indian White Sandalwood and Australian Sandalwood with Ambre Ombre (Rare Black Amber, Black Patchouli Amber, Black Frankincense). Soft ethereal nuances of coconut husk blend into the White Sandalwood from the coconut cask that the perfume ages in.

Half-bottles will come in a 5 ml bottle (the same type the NAVA Studio uses) but I can not guarantee that it will be their original bottles.

No LJ account? No worries! You can email your order to me at salixnoir@gmail.com. Please put NAVA circle or something similar in the subject line.

*ALSO* Missed something from one of my previous circles? I have some extras. (Updated 7/8/16), click the link. Buying my extras & leftovers helps me to continue running these decant circles. Thank You! Note: PayPal fees will not apply to anything bought from the leftover thread even when you combine them with the circle. :-)

I print out my shipping labels through PayPal using the address that they give unless you tell me otherwise. You’ll get a CnS at your PayPal address. And lastly, unless other arrangements are made, please have your payments to me before the order is placed, which I would like to do no later than the night of July 14th. If I do not receive your payment by the order date & an additional bottle is dependent upon that payment, I reserve the right to cut that bottle & send you a new total without that scent.

Bottles will be thoroughly mixed before decanting to ensure a well blended decant to all. As for shipping, I have lots of bubblewrap & I’m not afraid to use it! :-)
