January 2020 Bastet Perfume Society: Krishna

The Story of Krishna


As we approach the final hours of 2019 and the days leading up to my very first trip to the motherland of India, I am honored that this sacred perfume for Lord Krishna came through me like a sweet melody. 


Krishna is the Hindu God of compassion, tenderness, and love and one of the most revered among Indian divinities. He is typically depicted with a flute in his hand and portrayed with dark, or blue skin. This divine hero and enchanting lover can be a strong guide for us on our spiritual path of wisdom, devotion and discernment. 

Krishna is one of the major deities of Hinduism and has a passionate and devoted following. He is the eighth avatar or incarnation of the god Vishnu and is worshipped as the Supreme God, the author of all creation. “The literal meaning of the word avatar is “descent,” and it’s usually understood to mean divine descent. Avatars are savior forms of a god that descend to earth to intervene whenever help is needed to restore dharma (moral order) and peace.” 

 Krishna, often depicted with a dark blue-black complexion playing the flute, is the god of love, compassion and tenderness. Krishna’s mythology is the Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita, the Harivamsa, and the sacred collection of texts known as the Puranas. Krishna is known to his devotees as a delightful, charming, playful prankster. He is considered a teacher, leader, hero, protector and friend. 

Mysore Sandalwood, deep Indian Jasmine and rich, balsamy Cardamom absolute are the aromatic gems of this highly spiritual and divinely comforting Perfume worthy of a supreme God. May Krishna be our spiritual guide as we enter a new decade. 

2020 here we come!
