Inspired by my 'Owl Talon' jewel series from my Blood Milk line, this perfume oil blend was created by hand by Elizabeth Barrial in Los Angeles of much beloved scent conjurers Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, exclusively for this project.
From Beth: " The Owl Moon is my good luck charm, and is the pendant I wear almost every single day. I’ve invested it with a tremendous amount of personal symbolism, and it has, in a strange way, sort of evolved into a part of our family crest. The scent I created for it is a dark, rooty, sweet patchouli swirled with honey."

Review for Owl Moon via S. Elizabeth:
A symbiosis of the moon and the magnificent night owl. A dark, rooty, sweet patchouli swirled with honey. A scent steeped in mythology and magic, Owl Moon opens with the blackest, earthiest patchouli (before learning of the notes, I actually thought it was vetiver!) and calls to mind cool, moist soil at the base of a pine tree through which all of the busy little night creatures slither and crawl, the pale, ghostly light of the moon glinting off their scales and wings. A yellow-eyed owl, perched overhead, meditates briefly before silently embarking on his nightly hunt; the sour, screechy scent of his nest, littered with rodent bones and pellets, serves as a warning nearby. This is the fragrance of potent night magics, rich and ripe with darkness and feral mysticism. The sharpness of the patchouli streaked with high-pitched honey combine to form an aura that is both graceful and grotesque, sacred and profane. It dries down to a spellbinding, narcotic musk within an hour or so, and I predict many a darkling will fall rapturously in love with this bewitching nocturnal perfume.
