A new study has revealed the origins of tiger stripes and a subsurface ocean on Enceladus- one of Saturn's many moons. These geological features are believed to be the result of the moon's unusual chemical composition and not a hot core, shedding light on the evolution of planets and guiding future space exploration.
Tomoe Gozen: Red currant, golden amber, blackberry, honey, and pink pepper.
In bottle: Ooooh blackberry honey. *swoon*
On me: Blackberry honey and oooh, there's the currant. I am spiky-sweet delicious!
Zenobia: Orris, clove, costus storax, patchouli, hyssop, frankincense, balsam, and saffron.
In bottle: Ooooh. Interesting. Balsam and saffron with a sprinkling of clove. Orris like dry bone beneath.
On me: Mmmmm. The primary notes on me are the saffron and clove. Which sounds odd, but smells wonderful. Oh, I totally love this. Of course it's an LE. *headdesk*
