Welcome to a new and limited edition line of spray perfumes made exclusively in house at Sage Goddess. Designed to replicate the magic (albeit in a safe and synthetic form) of the family of plants known as the Solanaceae, the second in this series is my Limited Edition Nightshade Accord Collection: Belladonna Perfume. The root of the word Solanaceae comes from the Latin solare, which means “to soothe or comfort” and refers to the psychotropic properties of many of the plants in this particular genus.
Among the Solanaceae are Petunia and Tobacco, but for this perfume series, I chose to recreate the energy of my favorite nightshade plants: Datura, Belladonna, and Mandragora (Mandrake). The legends of these plants are deep and mysterious, their powers potent and unyielding. As a master perfumer, I undertook the task of creating perfume accords or formulas consisting of multiple notes and oils that replicate the energy of these plant teachers but in a way that is safe for topical application. As the nightshades are deadly plants, these perfumes are a fun and interesting way to experience their magic safely, translating their energy into scent you can wear.
The deeper magic of my Limited Edition Nightshade Accord Collection: Belladonna Perfume
The three Nightshade perfumes in this series are sold individually but are meant to be layered and worn together for optimal effect. I consider this a collectible series and chose the timing of their launch with intention. I cannot imagine a more sultry or seductive line of perfumes to offer you on the heels of Samhain and the darker months of the year. Even the bottles in which these perfumes are housed were custom designed as well as the labels to ensure that these bring a bit of gothic glam to your vanity or altar.
The second in the series is Belladonna. Belladonna means beautiful lady and she certainly is that! The plant itself contains Opium and was used in Renaissance Italy as a sedative and potion for beauty – but in wrong doses, of course, natural Belladonna is poisonous so in this perfume you enjoy all the benefits but none of the danger. Just her pure magic in a safe perfume created to mimic the magic and power of this plant teacher.
Belladonna was historically used in Rome as an offering to the goddess of war, Bellona. When used in a balm or unguent, European witches believed Belladonna was one of two herbs (the other being Mandragora, which is the next in this series) that could make them fly. Today we call this flying ‘astral projection’ and I designed this perfume to still support that practice but again, with all of the energetic intention but none of the harmful properties of the original plants.
In creating this scent, I chose four flowers and accords that recreate the experience of working with this sacred plant teacher. Those notes are amber, to soften your central nervous system and indulge your senses improving your connection to your deepest sensuality; Neroli or orange blossom for beauty and blessings; Ylang ylang, a natural aphrodisiac, to expand on amber’s capacity for passionate connection; and a Cashmeran accord to manifest your deepest experience of seduction. These four notes are blended with alcohol in this blend and all are fixatives, so this will be a long-lasting scent to guide and inspire you. Each bottle is infused with a carnelian chip stone for courage, optimism, and empowerment.
These fragrances are a limited edition for the season ahead. May all the secrets of this grand Universe be revealed to you in perfect and due time. And so it is.
