THE OSTARA STORY
BY THERAPEUTIC PERFUMER KATE BECKER
March 2022 Bastet Perfume Society Perfume of the Month
Ostara was composed in honor of the Spring Equinox. Ostara, or Welsh Alban Eilir, signifies “the light of the earth,” is the second fertility festival of the year and marks the midpoint between the Summer and Winter Solstice. Ostara gets her name from the folkloric Germanic goddess of Spring and Dawn, Eostre. She represents the awakening Earth, the first warm breeze, blossoming flowers, bird songs, nests, eggs and hares. Ostara beckons the animals to venture out from their Winter shelters, encourages buds to sprout and flower, and emanates life-force throughout the land.
Scent Profile: Delightful Honeycomb and tender Cedarwood provide the fertile ground for a floral delight of illuminating Neroli and sophisticated Geranium Absolute. A dash of sunny citrus ignites Ostara and the aroma of Springtime’s fresh green glory, sweet flowers and infinite potential. Allow Ostara to reawaken, support and empower you from now until Litha, the Summer Solstice.
