WITCH Archetype Botanical Perfume
A collaboration between Alexandra Schueler & GATHER Perfume
The WITCH archetype is an adaptable, mystical force that comes in many forms.
Tools for prayers and ritual smell of mysterious plants, the steam of sacred herbs over a slow flame, and the scent of enchanted, smoldering wands. The seasons inform, the earth is a compass, and the cycles of nature are the heartbeat.
Focus is the real magic here. Concentrated intention, the conjuring of energies for a meaningful purpose; to release, to heal, to cultivate, and bless. These signatures of the witch energy are not to be damned, but are to be embraced, welcomed, cherished and honored.
The WITCH archetype botanical perfume honors the many facets of this energy.
It anoints with sacred herbs, enchanted essences, and bewitching alchemy. Mysterious, complex, and magnetic, this 100% natural plant perfume is a spell in a bottle.
Blended by the incredible Ananda Wilson of GATHER Perfume, WITCH opens with a ritual of healing camellia leaf and osmanthus flower tea, garnished with delicate citrus, fine spices, and spiked with a splash of gorgeous bourbon.
Blooming from your warm skin is a garden flourishing with myriad fragrant roses; vintage roses with voluptuous floral complexity, sweet beach roses, and grassy heirloom tea roses growing from sweet, well nourished earth.
The moonflower spirals in and out to the tide of the moon, and rich, semi-sweet tobacco leaves hang along the wooden beams emanating the power and transformation of hundreds of years of plant ceremony.
Oaky Tahitian vanilla bean warms the spirit, and threads of sophisticated fine saffron bless the drydown.
True fossilized amber resin, rock rose, tonka bean, and precious agarwood anchor the composition with a sensual and magnetic ambery soft incense.
Adorn your skin for pleasure or purpose, this mysterious magic potion wears beautifully day and night, or can be reserved for anointing at sacred times.
Perfume comes in a 5 ml. cylinder glass bottle with a silver atomizer.

About Ananda Wilson
I am continually inspired by nature, trees, water, art, rhythms, dance, music, myth, and life phases.
Working with plant aromatics is my devotion and specialty; with a knack and nose for blending unique and highly praised, sacred, therapeutic perfume blends - both perfectly simple and evocative ones as well as deeply complex, sophisticated, and rich compositions. They are designed to elicit pleasure medicine, amplify intentions, catalyze sensory bliss, self care ritual, emotional support and seduction, and to ignite your imagination with a powerful terrain of scent imagery and narrative.
Natural perfumes' sillage and story varies widely depending on the blend. It may be strong, soft, last long or short, change over time, and respond to your body temperature and hormonal cycle. It is incredibly alive and responsive to each individual. Know that when you purchase a natural perfume, it is an intimate engagement in the wild natural world and will not offer the predictable, cloying, or forceful type of experience that commercial perfumes often do.
I invite you to anoint yourself with a fragrant prayer to your beautiful Self.
