Today I'm featuring the second of this month's six limited edition love inspired scents and the other half of my starcrossed lovers duo. Meet Isolde's Wish.
It was never easy for her. She never had power over her
love that grew for Tristan. She belonged to the king. She new her place,
yet some strange force took a hold of her heart along the way and it
was no longer hers to control. She lived for her secret moments with
Tristan. It was as if her heart only beat for him, yet it broke every
time they met.
She watched the flowers sway slightly by the
waters edge, their reflection danced in the water. Tristan wanted to
leave with her. He was expecting an answer. He should have been waiting
here already. A weight grew in her chest as she began to wonder if he
would come. Panic broke through the weight when she began to question if
she'd ever see him again at all. She felt her chest tighten at the
thought, her eyes burned. Could she even survive without her Tristan? As
she questioned this, a movement caught her eye and Tristan's form
stepped into the clearing. One look from him and she knew she would
never survive without him, yet she still didn't have an answer.
scent is the lingering warmth of Tristan on her skin, his love which
gives her hope and destroys, white flowers, moonlight, and love.
Notes of: dewy jasmine, cedar wood, sandalwood, faded rose petals, almond flowers, vanilla, saffron and musk.
Tristan and Isolde:
and Juliet's tragic love story is the most famous of all time and who
could forget about the tales of King Aurthur, Lancelot and Guinevere?
Before Romeo died for his Juliet, before Lancelot deceived his King,
Tristan loved Isolde. Tristan and Isolde's 12th century tale of love and
tragedy has been told and retold in countless forms from poetry to
operas and in many different versions. I am particularity fond of the
version that has Tristan and Isolde mistakenly and unknowingly drinking a
love potion and falling desperately in love while he is taking her to
marry his uncle and adopted father. It is a terrible love triangle. They
all care about each other, Tristan to his uncle who loves him as a son,
Isolde to her husband (Tristan's uncle) because he is such a good man,
and of coarse the unstoppable love between Tristan and Isolde that
destroys them all.
Isolde's Wsh is available in Perfumes, Lotions, Creams, Body Oils,
and Scrubs through February. Find Isolde's Wish along with the rest
