1929: Powdered Incense: Large Jar
During the summers of 2016, I visited two shops, Sword & The Rose in San Francisco & Enchantments in NYC and fell in love with powdered incense. Although the incense in these shops is more geared towards meditation, devotion & ritual work, I sought out to create my own that was mainly scent oriented. I met with Christina of Three Ravens Co. and expressed my desires and encouraged her to conjure our own blends. She undertook the task and toiled away learning all the details and came back with an amazing powdered incense that can be used to enhance the scents cape of one's personal space, or for use in magical work.
Paris, 1929 is based on the idea of a time period that was turbulent for people in the U.S., but was a time of potent creativity for people abroad. It was the year Salvador Dali meant Gala, a fertile, early time for the Surrealists. This scent is inspired by what this time what would have been like for these artists in Paris, while also holding a bit of moodiness for the same time in U.S. history.

Review via S. Elizabeth:
1929 exudes a profound gravitas; perhaps it’s that solemn shade of purple that appeals to both lofty ideals and melancholic musings, but the scent itself–both in the jar and whilst alight and wafting in twisting, tufts of smoke–is simultaneously clear and dreamy, soft and piercing.
