Review of Planchette via S. Elizabeth:
A divinatory object, a supernatural decoder spelling out secret and lost messages between the living and the dead, or the conscious and the unconscious. A dry, aged Oman frankincense with saffron and rare woods. On a personal level, Planchette is the most elusive of the three scents, and the message it communicates to me is mutable, mercurial. An undercurrent of sweet, fruity resin remains true, but apart from that, and in the span of five minutes, I catch alternating whiffs of honeyed cherry tobacco, dark, sugared confections, and lemony anise tea. I am reminded more of a lively, charged atmosphere wherein strangers sip and nibble amongst whispered chatter, and clasp hands excitedly, anticipating a custom, phantasmal communiqué from beyond–rather than the medium through which the ectoplasmic memo arrived.
