Friend of Jack | A Halloween Perfume

Brand new for 2016, Friend of Jack joins the Limited Edition Halloween Collection at Wylde Ivy and is the epitome of autumn. Sweet pumpkins wrapped in a sinister spice sounds divine, but it doesn't end there!


The Story  
Have you ever been walking in the woods on a golden autumn afternoon and for no particular reason something just off the path and catches your eye?  A face, you were sure you saw, but disappeared the moment you looked that way.  Perhaps there was a peculiar rustle in the leaves that made you look back or a feeling on the back of your neck that there was just something beyond.  As the days shorten and the leaves burst into the colors of their swan song, he starts looking.  October marches on and as the nights deepen, the veil seems to fray.  The shadows seem to warn of something, something lurking.  Jack is searching.  He slips between the trees, dances in the shadows, and is quite partial to cornfields.   Don't be frightened though, he's only looking for a friend....or at least that is what he tells you when he beckons you to the edge of the forest.



The Scent:
A luscious autumn spice with a touch of foreboding.  Ripe pumpkin, dry grass, charred wood, black peppercorns, ambered musk,  dry tobacco leaves, and a hint of woodsmoke.



My Monsters in Love Collection is available through Halloween.  After that, it is retired until next year.  This fragrance along with all the other monster inspired creations are available in Perfumes, Hemp and Green Tea Lotion, Body Butter Cream, Silken Body Oil, and Shea and Sugar Body Polish at both www.wyldeivy.com and my Etsy shop.

A Touch of Brimstone | A Halloween Inspired Fragrance

My A Touch of Brimstone fragrance joined my Halloween exclusive Monsters in Love Halloween Collection in 2015.   It's a rich black vanilla woods spiked with nuances of spice and smoke.  It's warm and exotic, perfect for the cool fall evenings. 

The Story:
By chance she crossed his path.  By chance his eyes found hers. When the curtain fell, it fell silently.  The curtain of magic that hid him, the true him, from the world.   She saw him.  He saw  her.  In those few moments, seconds at most, she had seen him.  It was not the him that he presented to the world.  That slipped away when he looked into those deep blue bottomless pools of her eyes and the memory came flooding back.  What he used to be.  What she used to be to him.  Lifetimes ago.  They had come full circle, back again through impossible spans of time and place.  Yet here she was, face to face with a monster.  Face to face with him.  But still, she looked at him with all the knowing and and love of their past selves.  Looked into the eyes of a thing, a terrible demon, and still her gentle warmth rushed towards him.

No he could not have it.  It had doomed them before, it couldn't be.  He'd spent centuries wish mongering for filthy people as a punishment, as a sacrifice that she may be at peace.  Oh the pain of those granted wishes. What was that spell again?   What was needed for forgetting....the dust of a star, an unspoken hope, a splinter of a soul, and just a touch of brimstone.

The Fragrance:
 The sweet base of bourbon vanilla and warm musk mingled with crushed tonka beans and resinous amber, dried chapparal and sandalwood, and smoked vetiver and nutmeg.



My Monsters in Love Collection is available through Halloween.  After that, it is retired until next year.  This fragrance along with all the other monster inspired creations are available in Perfumes, Hemp and Green Tea Lotion, Body Butter Cream, Silken Body Oil, and Shea and Sugar Body Polish at both www.wyldeivy.com and my Etsy shop.

An All New Scent for October, Pumpkin Milkshake

Autumn to me here in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains means frosty mornings that turn into golden afternoons, trees ablaze with red and copper tinged leaves, pumpkins, gourds, and hay bales, and finally crisp starry strewn night skies. 

Normally I don't release a Scent of the Month in October because I have so many new fragrances hit the shop with the Fall and Winter Collection and the Halloween Collection. 

My girls are pumpkin crazy this year.  We've been having curried pumpkin soup, pumpkin muffins, and pumpkin cookies ever since the beginning of September.  I just had to bring some more pumpkin into my shop.

I wanted something a bit different than the traditional pumpkin spice scent.  Pumpkin Milkshake combines the creamy notes of fresh pumpkin puree and sweet cream ice cream and gives it a little kick with ground clove and spiced rum.

Pumpkin Milkshake is available while supplies last in perfume, bath and body products, and handmade soap.

Also, if you are pumpkin crazy like we are, you don't want to miss Friend of Jack, this year's newest Limited Edition Halloween Scent.

Stuck on You | A Halloween Inspired Fragrance

I'm so in love with my Stuck on You fragrance.  I love it because it is it is totally unexpected for a Halloween and monster inspired fragrance.  It is pure sweet sugary goodness.  Stuck on You is part of my Monsters in Love Limited Edition Halloween Collection. The particular monster that inspired this fragrance for me was none other than The Blob.  I imagine The Blob being pink and sticky so of coarse I had to make it a candy fragrance.

The Story:
You may not like The Blob at first. In fact, he can be downright annoying. But there is just something about his guy. He sort of grows on you after awhile. The Blob loves to cuddle, he’s a bit “touchy feely”. In fact this guy doesn’t know the meaning of the words “personal space”. While at first you may find the clinging a bit off putting, after a while you will start to relax into the arrangement. You will see that The Blob can be quite sweet once you give him a chance. He is one guy who will never stray far from you…or at least you will never stray far from him…ever.

The Scent:
Notes of: sticky, melted fruit candy, dried cotton candy, a touch of strawberries and sweet musk. Stuck on You goes on candy sweet and melts beautifully into a smooth, mellow sugar musk

My Monsters in Love Collection is available through Halloween.  After that it is retired until next year.  This fragrance along with all the other monster inspired creations are available in Perfumes, Hemp and Green Tea Lotion, Body Butter Cream, Silken Body Oil, and Shea and Sugar Body Polish at both www.wyldeivy.com and my Etsy shop.
