This is a Endearingly Intense Perfume with Long Sea Voyages
We wanted to create perfumes for some of Jane Austen’s most beloved characters. I was thinking- how best to do this and how to figure out what herbs the actual character would have preferred and what herbs would compliment their personality traits. I also wanted these to be made in the historical manner – if possible- meaning flowers and herbs and resins that would have or could have been used at that that time. As I was thinking about this I came up with the idea of looking to see if anyone had put time and effort into studding at these characters personality traits and assigning them a likely zodiac sign – meaning the date and month they would most likely have been born. Turns out the analisys has already been done… Some may not be so hip on zodiac signs and that is fine. Historically in various cultures they were really important from everything from marriage matches to treating your illness. They were especially used in the folk traditions. Something you many not know- many plants, herbs, and resins have been assigned a zodiac sign based on their healing ability or the time of year in which they grew or even based on their symbolism.
So we were able to put together these amazing perfumes that capture the essence of each characters personality.
With that Information I bring you: ANNE ELLIOT /LEO July 23-August 22.
Anne Elliot was persuaded, when she was 19, to break off her engagement with Frederick Wentworth, a promising young lieutenant in the Royal Navy but a commoner without fortune, and she has never married. Lonely, unloved by a stuck-up and pretentious father and older sister, little considered by a family circle incapable of recognising her value, she leads a dull life of an almost-old maid. And yet here it is that, 8 years after the naval war with France ended, in September 1814, the young man whom she has never forgotten returns to England, having earned epaulettes, prestige and fortune in the navy. The first contacts are painful. He has retained an image of her as a person too easily influenced and she sees clearly that he is still angry with her. But at age 27, she has matured and gained enough independence from her family and social circle to choose her friends and her future.
