I am enamored of Gothic Rosary. This company knows its scents and knows its audience! I like to promote people doing what they were meant to do and giving products and services and art that we cannot get any other way than independently.
There are a lot of ways to use these scents in projects. I am taking one of the lucky scents and soaking a cottonball and putting it inside my business card holder. It makes all the cards hold a mysterious lingering scent that immediately evokes a feeling in the person who takes it. It is a subtle and subliminal way of being remembered and giving someone instant feelings of either comfort or curiosity.

After reviewing all these scents, I decided my business cards would smell like - "Can't Wait Demeter." Expect me to find lots of uses for the other scents. I tested them on my skin and I had no reaction, so this is exciting. I can be many characters with one tiny dot of scent depending on my moods.
