Día de los Muertos is one of my favorite holidays in this vein. Day of the Dead is an ancient, sacred holiday celebrated primarily in Mexico, as well as throughout the Americas and in Spain. Traditional celebrations of this occasion are colorful, festive, and focus on building altars for loved ones who have departed from this Earth. I created my new Día de los Muertos perfume trio, and I know you will love it, my dear ones who revel in the celebrations of the dark parts of the year – Day of the Dead, All Saints’ Day, Samhain, Halloween, All Hallows’…or however you choose to celebrate this sacred time. There is nothing to fear here, you are held and protected as we journey together, deep into the unknown.
“At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.” ~ Frida Kahlo
This is a time of exploring darkness and shadow. It’s a time for us to touch that place within us where the silence resonates and echoes throughout the vast caverns of darkness which stretch into the infinite abyss of eternity. This place scares us at first, but as we begin to explore it, we uncover our own link to all that is and all that ever will be. This place is one of past ancestral connection, present integration of self, and endless possibilities of an infinite future beyond this physical realm. This perfume trio is meant to accompany you on this soul path journey that only you can walk.
The scents of the Día de los Muertos Perfume Trio
First I am so excited to offer you Frida perfume in honor of the beautiful and iconic Frida Kahlo. Frida is known for her wonderful self-portraits and her unfettered expressions of the female experience and form, both in her art and life. Frida was who she was, unapologetically. I love her for that. She was dark, she was real, and she was passionate. We can all use a little of her Divine Feminine strength as we embrace and integrate ourselves this shadow season. This blend has notes of tobacco, chocolate fudge, and moonlight, and is bottled with a moonstone chip stone.
Next I offer Calavera perfume. This blend honors the calavera – a traditional or artistic representation of the human skull. The calavera, which often appears in the works of Frida, is one of the most recognized symbols of Día de los Muertos, as it represents rebirth into the next stage of life. This blend has notes of tobacco, frankincense, and brown sugar, and is bottled with a picture jasper chip stone.
Then I offer Pan Dulce, a sweet and savory blend to remind you of your own divine sweetness through all your shadow work. Pan dulce translates to sweet bread, and was born of the blending of cultures when the Spanish conquerors introduced wheat to Latin America. The blending of French and Spanish baking styles, especially around breads and pastries, combined with the indigenous cultures gave birth to pan dulce, a favorite treat even here in Southern California. This blend has notes of sweetbread and pastry, and is bottled with a pink aventurine chip stone.
How to work with the Día de los Muertos Perfume Trio
May these blends assist you as you walk your path through the shadows. Anoint with Frida to channel your inner feminine power – the power that allows you to embrace who YOU are, rather than who someone wants you to be. The power that allows you to love yourself with all the mess and imperfections that make you who you are. Anoint with Calavera to guide you through your time of transition during this period of darkness. On the other side, the light returns and you will be reborn. Anoint yourself with Pan Dulce to never forget your own inner sweetness, regardless of where you have come from.
