~~~~~ 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!

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.

Love is in the air!
Why? Because the NAVAlentines are here at the NA / VA February 2016 Decant Circle.

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

Victorian velvet ghost-like Jasmine, vespers of Vanilla bean, soporific musk all weave the scent of Eternal Ankh Vanilla Absolute (note not the other components of Eternal Ankh, only the vanilla that makes E Ankh what it is), only the haunting notes and then by adding specific blend techniques the main caricature personifies each of the velvets. Dusty, sensual and haunted.
