Surrealist Darling: Fini Powdered Incense
Over the summer I visited two shops, Sword & The Rose in SF and 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 only 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 compliments the candle scents of the same names.
'Surrealist Darling: Fini is a scent homage to Paris in the early 1900's as well as to artist Leonor Fini with notes of Aged Patchouli, Rose, Leather, Vetiver & Musk. Wildly independent and a true cat lady in later life, Leonor Fini made stunningly surreal paintings and truly lived deliciously. Included in the incense blend: dried rose petals, patchouli leaves from India, ground rose hips, and frankincense.
