Christian scholars in the 5th century made the connection between the twelve gems in the Breastplate of Aaron, twelve months of the year, and twelve signs of the zodiac. They theorized that each gem was connected to a certain month or astrological alignment and that they would receive therapeutic benefits for wearing one during that time.
To receive the full benefit, people took to wearing one stone for each month of the year and attributed a different meaning and value to them. Eventually this practice was modified so that a person would only wear the stone for the month they were born in (hence the term birthstone). There was a great amount of disagreement over which stone should represent a calendar month until 1912 when Sears published an “official” list of all the birthstones and the months they represented. Since then there have been a few modifications here and there but the list remains largely unchanged.
I decided to try this scent, and was pleasantly surprised, it is spicy and warm. I found that i kept smelling my wrist all day and enjoyed the compliments I received. I received even more compliments layering with different perfumes. It layered well with the Lavender Noir and Woodsmoke, and another vanilla perfume.
I am Totally enamored with this shops unique perfumes, this watermelon basil is outstanding I wore it all summer. These perfumes are much more complex and interesting than anything you could purchase at Sephora for a $100.00+. These are an A++ on the uniqueness factor and they are real head turners and compliment getters. The silage and longevity [8-10 hours] is remarkable. I am back today to purchase more.
Based on the sampler I got, I could probably close my eyes and pick any scent from the list and be happy with it. All three samples smelled great, light natural scents (Saltwater, Citron and Fig, Plays with Fairies). Plan on getting another sampler before I pick a favorite (which might be tough!).
I have not worn this one yet, but based off the other 2 I purchased, I know I will not be disappointed! Every sent I have purchased has been decadent, long-lasting head turners. I will definitely be a repeat customer! All the bottles were carefully packaged and arrived intact. Thank you for these great products!
