London 1636

Made to invoke the scents of London in the Westminster district in the 1630’s.

 At that time it had become an area filled with luxury markets of which perfumers and apothecaries were very well represented. There was a huge inflow of exotic spices, woods, herbs and oils coming in from all over the world. Scent was an important part of many peoples lifestyle at this time and there were many vendors of scented wares for one’s person or household.

Made with a selection of florals, resins and wood essential oils and absolutes along with raw spices after maturing this has become a strong, room filling incense, best used on an electric heater. I have keep the animal ingredients out of this one as there was more than enough going on without them!

 If you start on a low-ish heat and gradually turn it up you will notice a progression of scents as the different materials release their “airs”. Finally, when most of the lighter scents have gone up one gets the lasting notes of the sandalwood powder which all this has been mixed into.

If you find yourself interested in these times you might want to read:
