19th Century Literature Based Scents

I'm toying with new fragrances based on some of my favorite characters. So far I'm looking at doing two counterpoint fragrances: Elinor and Marianne as well as a Sherlock Holmes scent.
Elinor will be more earthy, Rosewood, Eucalyptus, Ivy, maybe a touch of Orange. Marianne will be sweeter, Vanilla, Lavender, Rose, Cinnamon. I'm still playing with blends currently.
For Holmes I'm looking at a masculine blend of Tobacco Flower and Cedarwood.
I'm also working on an Absinthe soap called "The Green Muse." That will be in honor of the romantic poets.

I have to make up anther batch of my Captain Wentworth soap, I've just sold the last bar.
I've also just listed a new soap, "Summer Stroll" to match my solid perfume by the same name.


  1. That is a great idea; scents based on writers and literature :). And "The Green Muse" sounds lovely, too.

    Did you come up with a name for the exotic scent you mentioned on your blog post on Jan 15?

    Best rgds,

    ps. I sent you e-mail...

  2. Yes, I'm now calling it "Elusive." I think it fits pretty well.
    Thanks for visiting!
