Scents of Wonder are six signature scents harvested from my own personal collection of thematic variations and layering experiments that simply turned into personal favourites from the TRNP range.
The inspiration for my Anjana natural perfume is derived from Cantabrian mythology. Here’s a little bit of background on this topic sourced from wikipedia.
Oral tradition provides different explanations for the nature of the Anjana. Some say they are heavenly beings sent by God to do good deeds, and they go back to heaven after 400 years, never to return. Others, however, indicate that they are spirits of trees who take care of the forests. Anjana are described as beautiful and delicate, half a foot tall, with white skin and a sweet voice. Some are like a nightingale when they are happy, and others are like a beetle stepping on leaves in autumn. Their eyes are slanted, serene and loving, with black or blue pupils as bright as the stars, and they feature nearly transparent wings. They wear long, jet black or golden braids, adorned with multicolored silk bows and ribbons; a beautiful crown of wild flowers on their head; and a blue cape on a long thin white tunic, and carry in their hands a stick of wicker or hawthorn which shines in a different color every day of the week. They are seen walking through the forest trails, resting on the banks of springs and on the margins of streams which then seem to come alive. They are able to talk with the water that flows from the sources and springs. They help injured animals and trees damaged by storms or Ojáncana, lovers, people who lose their way in the forest, and the poor and suffering. Whenever they wander in villages, they leave gifts at the doors of helpful and kind people. When summoned for help they accept if the summoner is good of heart, but they also punish the wicked. Traditions state that at night during the spring equinox, they gather in the fells and dance until dawn holding hands and scattering roses. Anyone who manages to find a rose with purple, green, blue, or golden petals will be happy until the time of their death.
This fragrance is a perfect Summery evening scent. A sunset dip in a rock pool of cool, clear, flowing water, where wild flowers and blossom scents drift on the warm breeze. An earthy depth in the composition is reminiscent of waterfalls, creeks, rivulets and ponds, where frogs and dragonflies dance with fairies in the twilight as the moon rises and night falls.
Anjana natural perfume is long-lasting and delightful; a floral chypre fragrance featuring cold-pressed Lemon, Mandarin, Hyacinth, Tuberose, Nutmeg and Vetiver.
