"And as the moon from some dark gate of cloud
Throws o’er the sea a floating bridge of light,
Across whose trembling planks our fancies crowd
Into the realm of mystery and night,
So from the world of spirits there descends
A bridge of light, connecting it with this,
O’er whose unsteady floor, that sways and bends,
Wander our thoughts above the dark abyss."
-- Haunted Houses by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
October 31st marks the end of harvest and the approximate midpoint to the return of the light (winter solstice). In this time of long nights and short days, many believe that the 'doors between worlds' are propped open and ancestors, spirits, and faerie folks are able to visit more easily. Many people light candles and leave plates of sweet treats to help their ancestors find their way home. Bonfires are lit for their powers of cleansing and protection. It is said to be a time when divination games and rituals can give glimpses of the future.
A scent of magic, mystery, remembrance, childhood nostalgia, and sweet blessings for darker times - bourbon vanilla, tonka, black licorice, star anise, roasted marshmallows, hazel, coriander, pale amber, cardamom, smoked benzoin, sweet myrrh, and a touch of woodsmoke whisping on autumn air.
A little smokier and sweeter than previous years with a warming touch of spice.

What buyers are saying:
Literally smells so fricking good! I forgot the bottle at my moms house the day after I got it so unfortunately not currently enjoying it. But hey, good way to age it!
This is truly Halloween in a bottle!
The best Halloween perfume I own hands down. Wisp of smoke, spice, gingerbread, sweet treats and dark, naughty, tricky underlying tone. Perfection.
Beautifully complex, spicy and sweet -just like Autumn.
Too bad this one is just seasonal. A non perfumey friend smelled me wearing the sample and loved it. So dark and spicy. It’s a smooth it in your hair kind of a fragrance.
I really like this one! I can definitely smell the licorice and marshmallows. It settles into a warm sweet scent.
A warm, autumnal, vanilla, caramelly, slightly smoky scent; so cozy & warm.
This scent is so cozy for me. It reminds me of nights spent by the bonfire with family as the fire crackles and the kids toast marshmallows. The spices round out the scent nicely and makes the perfume have a cold weather feel.
