In Ancient Egypt, incense was used to bind the sense of spirit and prayer to the Gods, it was a form of speaking words through smoke and perfumed resin. The scent would lift from the offering in the Temple and seek the ears of that particular God or Goddess.
The Osirian Purnima is our ennead of Ancient Egyptian Perfume. Purnima is Ancient Sanskrit for Full Moon. The Moon, considered by the Ancients as the evening replacement of the Sun. A balance of darkness lit by the touch of the sun and then given to our planet, a place to walk with light above and Earth below. This collection resonates the aroma of wondrous per fumum (the Latin from which 'perfume', comes), and Osirian Purnima Incense Perfume. The Latin term incendere (to burn), is a method of lighting resins and allowing the 'holy' scent to clear passageways for ceremonial or spiritual content.
Each label was commissioned by artist Trista Musco of New Orleans and painted especially for this Collection. More OP are on the way!
