Aroma palette is earthy, gourmand, and floral. Highlights include oak moss, blooming geraniums, light patchouli, and almonds.

Magdalene is a soft, haunting blend that combines earthy, woodsy, and floral aromas with a heavenly almond accord. This blend begins with almonds and geraniums set softly upon agarwood, oak moss and patchouli. This blend is soft, feminine, unexpected, and intoxicating evoking visions of ancient gardens and sacred ointments.

This blend is an iteration of our Magdalene perfume which was originally launched in 2010 and remains near identical to the original.

    What Are Perfume Oils?

    Please note that these are not fragrance oils; they are perfume oils (artisan perfumes presented in oil format). They are meant to be worn on the skin and are not suitable for wax warmers, oil burners, or aroma diffusers. The only difference between our perfume oils and Eau de Parfums is the oil format. Many people prefer perfume oils because they wear close to the skin and unfold a bit more non-linearly than Eau de Parfums. For a more in-depth look at perfume oils, please peruse our knowledge base articles.

    About Perfume Oils

    Perfume oils do not unfold their complexity when experienced directly from the bottle. If you attempt to gauge the aroma of a perfume oil by smelling it from the bottle, your experience will not be accurate whatsoever. Always test perfumes on your body for the full experience.

    Apply first to your pulse points (the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, and the inner elbows) where it will warm with your body heat to unfold the fragrance.

    Perfume oil, unlike alcohol-based perfumes, wears close to the skin. It warms on your body, adapts to your body chemistry, and creates a halo of scent on the body. As it fades, perfume oil can be applied throughout the day as a personal aromatic ritual.

    Not recommended for those who are pregnant or nursing, children, or pets. Always patch test for potential allergies before applying liberally.

    This perfume makes me feel like I just woke up anew in a bed of geraniums, covered in gossamer and sweet dew. If I look closely, I can almost see a faint golden glow radiate from my skin. Fate guides me to the nearest building – a cottage warm and sacred, and the house welcomes me in as if it knows me well. The scent of warm almond pastries fills the air, perfect for breakfast. I don't know where I am, but I know I belong. I don't know who I am, but I know I have a destiny to fulfill, and I intend on doing so.

    Magdalene is my second favorite of the permanent collection, and the perfume I'm complimented on most. The almond accord in it is absolutely gorgeous, and I now love geraniums in a way I never have before. If I were to describe it in color I'd choose powdery pink, ethereal gold, and creamy white. Wearing it, I feel like someone dearly beloved. It makes me feel like the best version of myself. I wish I could share this treasure with everyone, because I simply don't know how anyone could ever dislike it.

    Magical and Sacred

    I adore this scent. I feel as if I'm in a cathedral where incense has been burned kneeling at an altar of a goddess, Magdalene, her hair is falling down around her shoulders and in motion, one strong leg steps forward out of her robes and her arms are outstretched, in one hand she holds an anointing oil and in the other a ruby egg. Bouquets of flowers envelope her and candles smolder around her. It is ethereal. The almond takes the stage a few minutes after dry-down , but the florals, oak moss and patchouli are definitely in there too. After an hour the almond steps back and the oak moss and florals come out more. I don't like geranium eo, so I was worried about the geranium note, but it really is more a general floral to my nose and not geranium specific, thank goodness. It has a pleasing weight to its scent. I bought a dram, but am already itching to buy more.

    This has fast become my second favorite scent to wear. Not generally a patchouli fan (on myself), this light, yet deep oil evokes thoughts of walking in cemeteries by moonlight. Faint hints of floral pull you in to the deeper musk and a slight hint of baby powder. All day long I can’t stop myself from smelling my wrists. My mate loves this scent on me as well, pretty sure it has aphrodisiac properties:)

    Soft and unique

    One of my favorites from the sample set. I’ll be buying a full size soon. There are so many beautiful things happening in this perfume and people are constantly asking me what I’m wearing.

    I’m thrilled with every perfume from the sample set, but this one really stood out for me.
