Scent Description and Notes: “ THY GODFATHER’S PRESENT
When the boy had grown up, his godfather one day appeared and bade him go with him. He led him forth into a forest, and showed him a herb which grew there, and said, “Now shalt thou receive thy godfather’s present. I make thee a celebrated physician. When thou art called to a patient, I will always appear to thee. If I stand by the head of the sick man, thou mayst say with confidence that thou wilt make him well again, and if thou givest him of this herb he will recover; but if I stand by the patient’s feet, he is mine, and thou must say that all remedies are in vain, and that no physician in the world could save him. But beware of using the herb against my will, or it might fare ill with thee.
A bruised purple bundle of herbs with hyssop and life-everlasting.” – BPAL

- ITI: Hmm, there is an aquatic note in here somewhere. I also can pick up the herbs and slightly sweet florals.
- Wet: Hyssop, light herb, and fainter aquatic. It’s nicer on my skin than it is in the bottle.
- Dry: The hyssop is stronger when dried, but part of the notes remind me of early 90’s Glade air freshener.
