And so is the cat-a-mountain,
The ant and the mole sit both in a hole,
And the frog peeps out o’ the fountain;
The dogs they do bay, and the timbrels play,
The spindle is now a turning;
The moon it is red, and the stars are fled,
But all the sky is a-burning:
The ditch is made, and our nails the spade,
With pictures full, of wax and of wool;
Their livers I stick, with needles quick;
There lacks but the blood, to make up the flood.
Quickly, Dame, then bring your part in,
Spur, spur upon little Martin,
Merrily, merrily, make him fail,
A worm in his mouth, and a thorn in his tail,
Fire above, and fire below,
With a whip in your hand, to make him go.
There’s magic afoot: fiery red musk, luminous elemi, East Indian patchouli, champaca flower, cedar incense, ho wood, and hemlock accord sweetened with a peculiar sweet honey.” -BPAL.org
Oil Color: A fired cherry wood color.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard glass 1/32 ml imp decanted by Mystery213. The label contains the scent name on the front with the company name and decanting information on back. While I can’t find the original label art, the collection image is as follows:
- ITI: Oh, that’s…interesting. As soon as I open the bottle, I’m met with a rather unusual musky honey note, greened with hemlock perhaps, followed by patchouli and champaca flower. The honey almost has a tequila tone to my nose before the other notes shift it to more traditional musky sweetness.
- Wet: While the round almost vanilla’d ho wood is stronger on my skin after immediate application, the scent retains that odd musky greened or tequila honey tone before the red musk and chamapca warm to add a fiery exotic floral to the scent that is most welcome.
- Dry: Red musk and soft honey, now more like a body powder honey tinted with a touch of sweet patchouli and champaca. It’s much more balanced and harmonious once dried.
Other Impressions: None.
