tsk, tsk, Concord--no wonder you failed as an occultist, Â*you're got your Sephiroths mixed up! Â* Tobacco should be used for Geburah, Â*when you're cursing an enemy, Â*Malkuth would be more of an earthy, Â*vetiver scent, Â*to ground you back fom your Â*astral Â*travels. Â*But really, Â*this whole Jewish mysticism thing is soo complicated! Â* Give me that old Â*time ( shaman) Â*religion Â*and let me dream of the winning lotto numbers.
Nevertheless, Â*you have impeccable taste and I wholeheartedly applaud your choice of Muscs Kublai Khan, Â*especially Â*for whenever one dons the black robe under a full moon . . .
As to Uncle Aleister, I believe he used a compound of civet, Â*musk, Â*ambergris and patchouli---but I could be way off, Â*since I haven't sacrificed a goat in months.
Now Â*then, Â*as to "Ruthva"--- Frankly folks, I'd e-mail the 'sorcerer's apprentice' site and ask for the notes first. Â* Just cautious, Â*ever since Blackphoenix and Gothrosary sites started getting middling toÂ*poor reviews Â*here on the forums. Â*Depressing, Â*really. Â*If you can't trust a sorcerer, Â*who can you trust?
Anyway, as to dark scents:
1 Bulgari Black ( common in the finding of it, Â*lads, not in the brewing, Â*so no snobbery, Â*please)
2. Salvador Dali PH----For all those satanic masses--- Just be sure to get the edt, Â*not Â*the lame aftershave lest the demons laugh at your conjurations.
( Â*Also, Â*I have it on good authority that the followers of Â*He Who Must Not Be Named, Â*before commencing another murderous attack on Mr. Potter douse themselves with a combination of Bandit, Â*Kuorus and Quorum. )
And Â*finally, Â*if you repent and manage to escape the forces of darkness:
3. Â*Acque Sante--Holy Water, Â*by Profumo, Â*available in the US athttp://store.perfumersapprentice.com/profumo.html
A ' tender, celestial aroma that opens the heart to angelic realities. ' Â*Created by an Italian Sufi mystic to heal wounded hearts and dispel negative influences.
So glad I get to leave behind the mundane world and spend a little time with fellow romantic/ lunatics on Basenotes. My friends, let us never forget the warning spoken by the lead in Jean Cocteau's classic film:
" My parents did not believe in magic, Â*that is why I became a Beast."
Always falling for Beauty,
