October 2017 Bastet Perfume Society: Avalon

In August I made a pilgrimage to the west country of England and visited Glastonbury, a place steeped in mystery and legend, said to have been the location of the ancient Isle of Avalon. When I was a young woman, I read Marion Zimmer-Bradley's The Mists of Avalon, in which she relates the Arthurian legend from a female perspective. This 800+ page story stirred something profound in me - like an ancient memory that was there waiting for my arrival. After perusing the mystical town of Glastonbury, I came upon a temple solely dedicated to the Lady of Avalon and lo and behold there was a room full of depictions of her, adorned with antlers, symbolizing the perfect balance between masculine and feminine. What an enlightening miracle this was for me and a huge confirmation that things come to us for a reason; symbols, dreams and visions all carry meaning and often a message from the unconscious that can lead us to new heights, awaken a dormant gift or uncover a truth that is ready to be known.

October’s perfume will be called Avalon, a scent that I formulated to evoke the immortal, sacred feminine energy of the Isle of Avalon. Avalon perfume features trance-inducing Jasmine melded with herbaceous Blue Tansy to evoke the healing Goddess energy of the Isle of Avalon. I also brought in a touch of enigmatic Clary Sage, known as the “woman's herb”, to bring spiritual growth, clairvoyance and align us with the high priestess within.
