Base Notes.

Base perfume notes are typically the most important of the notes in a perfume because they tend to be the ones that last the longest. There are a number of different types of base perfume notes, but there are some that seem to be more popular than others. Most perfumes, colognes and fragrances are comprised of top perfume notes, middle or heart perfume notes and base perfume notes. The base notes are going to be the heaviest and the strongest notes, and they will be the ones that linger long after the other notes in the fragrance have faded off.

Base notes are typically chosen because they have strength, fixative properties and a solid scent. The base notes will generally dictate which of the fragrance families the perfume fits into. Base notes are typically heavy, heady, strong, woody, smoky, exotic, spicy, mossy, sensual or warm, or a combination of these characteristics.

Many base perfume notes have been used for a number of centuries, and so they are now considered to be rare and exotic, and they are only used in expensive and exclusive scents. Some perfume notes are also seen as being politically incorrect because they were derived from animal sources, and so they are much harder to come by in this day and age. Luckily, many of these original base notes have been recreated in the form of synthetic versions. There are a number of other base perfume notes as well, many of which are derived from plant resin and tree resin and other natural sources.

Here are some of the most common types of base perfume notes:

Amber - Amber is a good fixative that most people like, and is derived from the fossil resin of a fir tree.
Ambergris - This used to be derived from sperm whales but now is a synthetically produced note for obvious reasons.
Opoponax - This note smells like sweet licorice and comes from a plant resin.
Patchouli - This is an earthy and sweet note that is well known for being in incense.
Tonka Bean - This note smells like marzipan and caramel and comes from the Tonka tree's pod in South America.
Musk - This is one of the most commonly used of all base notes, and is synthetically created.
Sandalwood - This is a widely used note from the sandalwood tree.
Balsam - This is a sweet smelling resin from some plants.
Benzoin - This is a resin from the Stryax tree and offers a chocolaty base note.
Courmarin - This base note smells like marzipan and comes from the tonka bean.
Labdanum - This is a resin from the Cistus plant.  
Leather - Leather offers a smoky and warm scent and comes from birch trees and fir trees.
Oakmoss - Oaky and mossy in nature, this base note comes from a lichen that is commonly found on the oak tree.
Olibarnum - This is a spicy and strong base note from the boswellia tree.
Vetiver - From India and the Caribbean, this is a green and earthy base note.


Astroscentology: 22-28 November

By: Hieronimuss

It's a week of wisdom. As big words fly and dreams seem to be more within reach than ever before this year, the wisdom for this week is to seek out the authentic in our efforts and understand better our origins, including our parents. This can solidify our creative spirit and growth. We look this week into some wise proverbs and wonder if their wisdom can be applied to perfumes.

Eau de Sisley 2

his is a review of the Eau de Sisley 2 perfume, a perfume intended both for men and women that was recently released in a group of three by the Sisley design house.

The Eau de Sisley 2 perfume is the second scent in the three scent series that Sisley recently released. The Eau de Sisley 2 perfume begins with a lively feel to it, as it offers ample quantities of both basil and cardamom, combined with rose, cyclamen, patchouli, sandalwood and cedar. Each of these notes is splendidly balanced in the most perfect combination that you can imagine. There are woody and musky undertones in this Eau de Sisley 2 perfume, giving the scent just the right amount of masculine edge to take some of the edge off of an otherwise feminine scent with plenty of sheer florals. This Eau de Sisley 2 perfume is intended to be a unisex perfume fragrance, as it has both a masculine edge and a feminine one, making it perfect for any occasion and any gender.

Notable Notes - The most notable notes in the Eau de Sisley 2 fragrance include Iris, Basil, Sandalwood, Jasmine, Vetiver, Patchouli, Rose, Cardamom, Cyclamen, Cedar and Bergamot.

Recommended Use - The recommended use for the Eau de Sisley 2 fragrance is daytime use, though this scent is fresh and clean enough that it can be taken pretty much anywhere and is well suited for both daytime use and night time use as well.

The Eau de Sisley 1 is one of three fragrances that were recently released by the Sisley design house. They are both simply and sparkling in the elegance that they offer. These three fragrances were all created together, to behave as if they were three sisters or three faces of a single woman, in that they are quite similar and yet very unique in nature, and so they are marked with the numbers Eau de Sisley 1, Eau de Sisley 2 and Eau de Sisley 3.

The Eau de Sisley 2 perfume is the fresh and clean of the three sisters. It begins with a sonata of green scents that comes from basil, cardamom and bergamot and then it slides into a floral middle with aquatic iris, cyclamen, Egyptian jasmine and rose. The base notes in the Eau de Sisley 2 perfume include a nice woodsy and chypre combination marked by vetiver, patchouli, cedar and sandalwood.

The Eau de Sisley 2 perfume comes in a 100 ml or 3.4 oz Eau de Parfum, and it originally was released on the market in April of this year, 2009. The flacon is glass and features a unique stopper that was designed just for this trio of perfumes by a Polish Sculptor named Bronislaw Krzysztof.


L'aimant PerfumeThis is a review of the L'aimant Perfume, a fragrance by Coty for women.

The L'aimant Perfume, which stands for "the magnet" in the French language, is a Coty perfume that is designed to be both luxurious and purely romantic at the same time. The L'aimant Perfume is a beautiful blend of rich and stunning florals that has become a timeless classic since it was originally introduced in the year 1927. The design of this L'aimant Perfume was done by Vincent Roubert for Francois Coty, and it includes a stunning combination of accords including jasmine, lavender, rose, carnation, cedar, lily of the valley, tonka, sandalwood and musk.

Notable Notes - The most notable notes in the L'aimant Perfume include Sandalwood, Musk, Tonka Bean, Cedar, Lily of the Valley, Carnation, Rose and Jasmine.

Recommended Use - The L'aimant Perfume is a romantic perfume, through and through, so it is best indicated for romantic wear use.

This particular perfume, L'aimant perfume, is a little bit sweet but there is something really nice about it. In fact, it reminds me of being a teenager again, with a simple mist on my body, which is really nice sometimes. This is a truly romantic perfume, it has the right amount of sweetness but it is not at all overwhelming, which is really appreciated. I really love the carnation, jasmine and rose notes wrapped up in the lily of the valley.

Coty's L'aimant perfume is an old favorite that is sometimes difficult to find, but a really nice surprise when you do manage to find it for sale. The notes that are offered in the L'aimant perfume are absolutely wonderful, with the perfect combination of woodsy notes like Tonka Bean, Sandalwood and Musk combined with delicate florals in Carnation, Lily of the Valley, Rose and Jasmine. If you are looking for something that is romantic but natural and clean feeling, then the L'aimant perfume is definitely a good fragrance for you to consider trying.

Finding a romantic perfume fragrance that is not overwhelming, too mature, or too musty can be really difficult it not completely impossible for some people. This is why I was so surprised to find L'aimant perfume, which I fell in love with instantly. It only makes sense that I would fall in love with this truly romantic fragrance, as it has so much to offer and my partner and I both love it when I'm wearing it. Not only do I love smelling it on my own self all day long, but smelling it on his clothes the next morning is also incredibly nice. If you are looking for something sweet and romantic without being overstated, or understated for that matter, then L'aimant perfume is the fragrance for you.

Genesis 37:25 "Myrrh of Bible"

Gen. xxxvii 25, Ladanum, the Gk. Xf]5ov. This word is of more doubtful origin. In the Arabic it appears as ladhan and might very well be derived from the root ts6, to be sticky. It has also been derived from the Persian and appears to represent a fragrant and sticky resin gathered from the leaves of the Cistus Creticus SchrofT (J. A. O. S. Oct. 1920) calls it the Rock rose, Cistus villosus. The Semitic derivation of the name is favored by the fact that the Cistus is produced in Canaan, at least in the region of Gilead.


Holy Incense : Labdanum

herbal name:“Cistus creticus” or  “Cistus Incanus”

also known as “Rock Rose” or “Onycha”

Astrological sign: Cancer

Elements: Water and Earth

God/dess associations: Minoan Snake Goddess, Cretan Britomartis, Artemis, Pan

Perfumery: sweet amber base note

Labdanum is the resin extracted from the Rock Rose, a small shrubby plant that grows in Southern Europe and northern Africa. The most famous labdanum comes from Crete.

It is a soft, black/brown substance with an interesting earthy, balsamic sweet scent. In it's raw form the sticky substance isn't something you could imagine wearing as a perfume, (in fact one of my daughters reckons it smells like rotting fruit) and it isn't until you combine it with other ingredients that it begins to show it's true magic. As an essential oil or absolute extraction, it becomes a greeny, yellow liquid that has a much lighter, higher note to it...it retains it's soft, ambery warmth, but adds a higher floral note to it.
Goats with labdanum.

In Cyprus, Labdanum was traditionally collected off the fleece of goats that collect it by brushing through clumps of the cistus bush while grazing. Nowadays it is mainly harvested from May to June (When the resin is soft and sticky) by brushing the plants with leather thongs. There was a traditional perfume salve that Cretan women made from Labdanum, Lily, jasmine and quince which they would use to anoint their chests above their low cut dresses (This is where those of the Minoan Serpent Goddess who is always shown with her beautiful naked breasts open and proud originates) and it was burnt as incense on hot coals in their homes to bless them. Labdanuit was exported all over the far and middle east and used in perfumes and incense of many kinds and is widely mentioned in old texts including the bible.

In fact, the bible has one of the first recorded incense recipes:

Exodus 30:34 ( BTW this is the plain English translation...the older versions were the usual badly translated hard to understand stuff, so I'm quoting the modern translation here...the older ones also originally translated the labdanum as a kind of mollusk shell extract....took decades of controversy before an arab translator pointed out that the word “Shecheleth” actually meant onycha, which was widely used at that time as incense...though there is still a fair bit of controversy about the word “Onycha” too....my latest research has unearthed a number of sources that reckon THIs is actually a powder made from those funny little door closing muscles of certain shellfish....but I digress)

“ And the Lord said to Moses, Take sweet spices, stacte and onycha and galbanum, with the best frankincense, in equal weights; And make from them a perfume, such as is made by the art of the perfume-maker, mixed with salt, and clean and holy. And put some of it, crushed very small, in front of the ark in the Tent of meeting, where I will come face to face with you; it is to be most holy.“
Tool: ladanestirio.
The recipe itself is similar to many Egyptian temple incenses. The famous Egyptian Kyphi incense also contains Labdanum. Perfumers in the middle ages used it as a base note together with Ambergris and Patchouli in Chypre and Leather note perfumes. Like most of the natural perfume ingredients, Labdanum has been replaced by synthetic versions in most modern perfumes for cost reasons, but some more traditional perfumers still use it as it has a depth of scent that no chemical copy can rival. It is an incredibly soothing scent, soft, warm, earthy, fruity and floral all at the same time. And in Aromatherapy it is used for people in need of it's calming, deeply spiritual effect. In Magic it is used for all things related to the starsign of Cancer, which is ruled by the moon. So it's a great ingredient in all kinds of full moon rituals, gentle Love Magic, Healing broken hearts and the like.....

It would also be a good incense for any rituals invoking the Cretan Serpent Goddess or , Artemis the virgin huntress who is said to be the same as the Cretan Goddess Britomartis. It would also be appropriate to use it in blends to honour Pan, as it grows where he comes from and was collected from the beards of his sacred animal: the goat!

Medicinally it was used as a stimulant expectorant for cattarrhs and to treat dysentery. It was also used in plasters for skin infections. And there are some references that both the seeds and the resin were used in foods as well. (I only found one reference for this so I'm not sure I'd be game to experiment).

It's main usage has always been in incense and perfumery though.


Chypre perfume.

A beginner's Guide to Chypres
This sample packe will help guide you through the world of chypre fragrances & its sub categories.
The sampler will include 1 ml sample vials of the following perfumes named in the discussion below. Pure parfums will be 1/2 filled sample vial.

The word Chypre is French for Cyprus. It was first used in perfumery by François Coty, who created an influential perfume of that name in 1917. Consisting of a bergamot top note, classic floral heart, and a rich mossy base note. However, perfumes of a similar style have been created throughout the 19th century & have had variations on this theme & Modern chypre perfumes have various citrus top notes, herbaceous, floral and animalic notes, but all tend to have a "warm" and "woody" theme, and contain oak moss and usually amber. Further common notes include patchouli, bergamot, rose and rock rose (Cistus - labdanum)

1) Traditional Chypre ~ Coty chypre the original Chypre fragrance

2) Floral Chypre ~ More floral notes are added & often patchouli is added to the base along with the oakmoss. Miss Dior is a wonderful floral Chypre.

3) Fruity Chypre ~ Heavy with a peach-like fruitiness. Fruity Chypres use dark & heavily sweet & fleshy fruits such as plum, peach & apricot – which highly complement the dark earthy base notes and the sparkling citrus top notes. Guerlain's Mitsouko was the ground breaking fragrance of this category. the first to combine chypre with the Peach acchord.

4) Chypre Leather ~ Characterized by the addition of Dry, smoky, leathery notes often considered dark and masculine. Tobacco, castoreum, cade and birch tar are the notes that lend a smoky, leathery feel to a perfume. Chanel's Cuir de Russie was one of the first to combine leather & Chypre notes.

5) Aldehydic chypre ~ Groundbreaking in its day for combining chypre & aldehydes is Cabochard by Gres

6) Aromatic Chypre ~ Also a modern take on chypres with a fresh feel. Guerlain's sous le Vent would fit this category perfectly

7) Green Chypre ~ Also a modern Chypre sub category. The lightest of the chypres – usually with leafy-green notes or, at times herbaceous and coniferous notes. Chanel No. 19 was one of the first green chypres created.

8) Citrus Chypre - Citrus is added to the heart as well as top notes The most innovative Citrus Chypre is Dior Eau Sauvage Created by top perfumer Edmond Roudnitska, Eau Sauvage (1966) is a citrus chypre fragrance that broke the mould in its use of scientific innovation. Top perfumer Roja Dove says, "It is one of the most important creations of the second half of last century." Eau Sauvage is groundbreaking in its simplicity, From today's perspective, the scent is classic and refined.

9) Rose Chypre - Adding more rose to the heart The most well known & probably the best Rose Chypre ever made is Lancome Magie Noire

10) Dark Chypre -A dark Chypre is one that forgoes the citrus & uses deep dark florals such as dark rose & heavy on the leather. the most well known dark chypre is Robert Piguet's Bandit


The Ecomuseum of Rhodes


The “journey through time and place in the rural environment of Rhodes”, comprises the main part of the idea for the creation of an ecomuseum, which focuses on at least 15 villages in the central, mountainous regions of the island. This rural area, which has been wholly left out of the hectic tourist development of the rest of the island, is defined by its great wealth in natural ecosystems and as a result sections of this entire district can stand on their own as museums. As well as presenting folklore and historic elements, these areas can also provide a multitude of topics and themes that can be introduced into an ecomuseum.

The project anticipates the creation of activities within a museum-type structure that are based on the agricultural life and cultivation activities, but also plans to introduce the special character of the communities that will participate in this project with sensitivity and respect.
Through these communities, the visitor will be able to learn about the history, the civilization and the culture
of the various villages of Rhodes.

More specifically, the museum will be supported by an interesting network of itineraries, within the natural environment and from which the visitor will have the opportunity of learning about the ecosystem and
the cultural identity as well as the heritage of each village. Gradually, the quality products of these regions, that of nature and the landscape, the ancient and cultural sites, the villages, the traditional craft workshops, will be presented as “elements of civilization”, which will be offered to the visitor of Rhodes as further enrichment elements to the specific tourist product.

The aim of this project is the sustainable development of a small agricultural region through the promotion and presentation of its agricultural history and the exploitation of her natural cultural and folklore sources and the development of facilities and services that pertain to alternative tourism.

Networking and co-
Co-operation between the Ecomuseum of Rhodes and its international counterparts could possibly involve the following departments:

• One of the immediate priorities of the coordinators of the project is for its integration with other similar online museums of Europe and its collaboration with them.
• Educational and research institutes for the Scientific Museologic approach regarding the artifacts of
the Ecomuseum, as well as the establishment of a control info centre.
• Organisations and movements involved in the protection of the environment and cultural heritage.
• The rekindling of sources of energy and the creation of green energy parks in the region of the ecomuseum (15 villages i
n central Rhodes) which will supply the energy needs of the villages (photovoltaic modules and wind turbines).
• The protection of aquatic sources and the development of new forms of cultivation, which are said to save on water.

The above suggestions basically represent the initial areas of interest for which we would like to e
ngage international collaborators and investors, particularly for the purposes of funding this project. We believe there are enough eco and agro elements present for us to start working on with your help।


Labdanum : A history 10.000 year

Labdanum has fascinated people for many centuries. It is said to reach deep into our subconscious and bring back memories, pictures, feelings and moods. Labdanum originates from the rockrose bush, which emits a resinous dark brown mass from its leaves and twigs. To this day it is still gathered by driving goats into the thick forests overgrown with labdanum bushes. The goats eat their fill from the branches and the sticky resin gets stuck on their beards. When they return, their owners carefully comb the resin our of their beards. Also used is a rakelike instrument with long strips of leather attached to it, which they drag across the bushes to collect the resin. Labdanum strengthens the body and provides warmth and sensuality. It is very grounding. The fragrance of Labdanum is very complex. This waxy resin produces a balsamlike, woody, earthy, marshy, smoky, ambergrislike, leathery, flowery, honeylike, mintlike fragrance with hints of plum or oakmoss after a rain. The Japanese use Labdanum in their Neriko mixtures, which are used during tea ceremony. Egyptians used it in their Kyphi mixtures and the Hebrews burned it in their temples. Today the perfume industry uses labdanum to add a note of moss and leather to its products. Labdanum is an excellent medium for making fragrant incense pellets.


Rose of Sharon Essential Oil and its Use

For more information, please visit Rebecca’s website http://HealWithOil.com.

In ancient times, the Cistus Creticus (Cistus grows up at East), also known as the “rock rose,” was believed to be the Rose of Sharon.  As goats and sheep roamed through the brush, this flower became entangled in their coats.  While caring for their sheep, the shepherds would collect it from their wool and rub the resin on their cuts and wounds to soothe them.
Coats with labdanum in Labdanum area northern Crete.  

This multi-petal flower is found in the fertile plain called Sharon between Jaffa and Mount Carmel in Israel.  It has a honey scent from an aromatic gum that exudes from the plant.

The Hebrew word sharon means “meadow-saffron, crocus, and rose (place of pasture).”   It is a derivative for Sarai, which means “princess.”

Think of how the thornless Rose of Sharon beautifully mirrors Yeshua’s tender love, as spoken of in Song of Solomon 2:1: “I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.”   The Scriptures tell believers that they are the sheep of His pasture and feed among the lilies.

Cistus Creticus - Rose of Sharon
Therapeutic/Medicinal Uses

Rose of Sharon has been studied for its therapeutic effect on cell regeneration according to Dr. David Stewart, author of “Healing Oils of the Bible.”[1]

Rose of Sharon has been used for bronchitis, respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, wounds, and wrinkles.  It is also known to be anti-infectious, antiviral, and antibacterial.  Rose of Sharon helps to reduce inflammation and acts as a powerful anti-hemorrhaging agent.  The Essential Oils Desk Reference reports that it also helps strengthen the immune system.[2]

Rose of Sharon helps to quiet the nerves and elevate the emotions during prayer.  Studies revealed that people taking antidepressant drugs found this oil to be mood-elevating by rubbing it on their bodies or just inhaling it.[3]
