Aries: Cardinal fire: the essence of identity.
Black pepper, honeysuckle, opoponax, dragon’s blood, and wild ginger.
In bottle: All pepper and opoponax!

Ostara: Our springtime celebratory perfume is crafted with orris root, bergamot, frankincense, daffodil, orange pulp, attar of rose, jonquil, strawberry leaf, benzoin, violet leaf, copal, honey cakes, sweet cream, and the blossoms of springtime.
In bottle: Hm! Light green.
On me: Something in here smells starchy and artificial to me. :(
Delirium: Non compos mentis, indeed! A contrary, conflicted scent, bubbling with merry madness. Contains apple, rose, and lemon.

Danse Macabre: An allegorical expression of the ineffable, indisputable triumph of death, generally expressed in medieval artwork as a violin or flute-wielding skeleton leading a procession of dancers to their graves. Black cypress with oakmoss, frankincense, oude, and a sliver of toasted hazelnut.
In bottle: Frankincense, with the tiniest edge of moss.
On me: Hey, there's the moss! And the cypress. Mmmm, that's dark and woody and nice.
...now I go lie down.
