"Sanctum" - Palo Santo Perfume Oil with Myrrh and Cistus Ladanifer (Labdanum)
Top Notes: Honey Essence, Sweet Citrus
Middle Notes: Palo Santo, Benzoin, Labdanum
Bottom Notes: Frankincense, Myrrh, Sandalwood
Reminiscent of incense you would find in byzantine churches, both Orthodox and Catholic.
Palo Santo is a natural wood aromatic compound used by priests and shamans alike for spiritual remedy, and for purifying and cleansing. Myrrh is mixed with frankincense and is used in almost every service of the Eastern Orthodox, and traditional Roman Catholic churches.
Labdanum has a complex scent, described as sweet, warm, and balsamic. It has notes of the richness of leather and the sweet earthiness of musk and vanilla.
I feel like I entered a cleansed and purified home when wearing this. Initially hit by the Palo Santo note, which I like.
These perfumes were all a hit with my family. Thank you for making such a beautiful product and in trial sizes too!
Shipping was extremely fast, and customer service was amazing - I even got a free mystery perfume. Sanctum smells like what I imagine the inside of the church should smell like. I also love combining it with other fragrances (like Brimstone) to dilute the sweetness or add smokiness. Overall, I absolutely adore it and will probably purchase more as soon as I run out.
Suzy is the kindest person ever! I get CONSTANT compliments on how I smell and it's all thanks to her!
Incredible scent. Lasts all day without being too heavy. Bottle makes it easy to apply the right amount. Literally one of the best perfumes I've ever used.
