|Odin Perfume: BPAL Is Doing It Wrong
||[Sep. 12th, 2008|12:01 am]
Recently, someone gave me, or let me smell (I forget) a bottle of an Odin perfume from BPAL, and I smelled it.
The description of the scent is thus:
His scent is dry elm bark, amaranth, warrior’s musk, and Odin’s Nine Herbs of Power.
It didn't do it for me, although if it works for one of y'all, let me know in comments.
A Gentleman recently asked what ought to go in Odin incense--if I were doing it, it'd go like this:
If you could put the wind in a bottle--or the night sky, carelessly scattered with stars...
If you could get a blustery midnight storm from some time between Winternights and half-past Yule in a bottle, after the frost has come, once the last sheaf has been left out--and then give it a faint undertone of Eau de Draugr...
If you could somehow bottle the heady brew that, simultaneously, fuels the berserk, empassions the poet, and spurs the magician, inspires the scientist...
That is what should go in!
What smell(s) would do it for you, Gentle Reader?
