So I finally got around to making some Merlin inspired perfumes (I have a side business making perfume oils) and I thought I'd share the little 'blurb' here, along with some ....author's note as it were.

Camelot - Petitgrain, Cinnamon, Musk and Myrrh
Very old and regal smelling to me, with a hint of citrus and a touch of spice

Merlin - Pomegranate, Frankincense and Peach.
I wanted to make him slightly mysterious, with layers, but still light and playful, so he gets some fruity exotic smells.

Arthur - Orange, Bergamot, Cinnamon, Musk and Cedar
The citrus and spice theme shows up again with the crown prince of Camelot, with a bit of added 'woodsiness' and touches of nature and the old religion

Morgana - Pomegranate, Myrrh, Amber and Sandalwood
Morgana is full on mysterious, exotic. rich sandalwood and amber. Slightly seductive.

Gwen - Vanilla, Honeysuckle and Sage
Gwen, like Arthur hints back to Camelot, with homey, citrus, floral scents.

So, what does everyone think?

Do you have an online shop anywhere? These sound delectable, particularly Morgana's!

Ooooh, I <3 your shop! (Literally, I just added it to my favorite sellers!)

Please do let me know when you list them individually, I will definitely pick that one (...and some others I just saw...) up.

Absolutely beautiful idea and brilliant. Do you have any intention of listing Uther's as well to sale?

*adding you to favorite sellers*
