It’s so wonderful when you find work that you love so much that it is truly a passion. So many artisans embody this and Cat Marx most definitely does. Cat Marx to me is an artist, a dreamer, a visionary, a master perfumer. She puts so much love, care and brilliance into each and every creation!
I think imagination is one of the greatest gifts we have! So, I was thrilled to be able to sample some scents from Catrianna’s Deep Midnight Perfumes Etsy shop. Each one has a story behind it and you can get happily lost in a world of dreams, mystery and magic.
CHILDREN Of The NIGHT: shades of Gothic Victorian and Steampunk. A nice blend of dragon’s blood, silky champas, deep vanilla, dark black fig, and the haunting faint breath of heliotrope.
I love the blend of this one. It’s sweet without being cloying and the champas give it a mystical sensual appeal. The children of the night dance in alleyways, run wild in the streets and listen to no one.
CATRIANNA’S CAULDRON : Gothic, Halloween perfume oil
This one blew my mind!
Catrianna’s Cauldron: A little of this, a little of that… there’s magic in here!
Sweet Sudanese frankincense, rare spices, a deep warm luscious vanilla, and a pinch of sage, all topped off with a whiff of magic cauldron smoke.
This is just so lush and the smoky essence intrigues me. How does she get that into a scent? I love this one and wear it often.
Some more treats:
SANGREAL PERFUME OIL: Gothic, medieval, Legends of the Grail Perfume Series
Comprised of the word San and Graal, Sangreal has come to mean: Holy Grail, and also Blood Stone. The Holy Grail, long sought after in legend by Arthur Pendragon and his Knights of the Round Table. This perfume blend is a rich floral and resin blend that will sweep your senses into the time of legends of kings, maidens, and knights and make you feel as though you have walked into a medieval chamber.
Three very different red and black roses, enigmatic dragon’s blood, and a magical combination of other sacred resins and woods make for a scent that is rich and long lasting. The perfume tips towards the feminine side of the scale, but it is a deep enough rose scent that it can be worn by both sexes.
This is a deep darker rose blend with an earthy, Renaissance feel.
VIXEN VENOM: GOTHIC Amber, vanilla, patchouli
The model here is Cat!
