You remind me of the babe!
The babe with the power.
The power of voodoo.
Remind me of the babe.
Ummm so if you haven't figured out the pun on this one it's my FAVORITE movie ever, Labyrinth. If you have never seen it, please, stop everything now and put it on. You cannot leave this planet without having watched it.
I named this Adipocere after Dance Magic the song because in truth this scent has a magical witchy quality to it that deserves a fitting and magickal name.
The top two notes are this amazing woodsy scent with soft lavender. The scent description is a bit more in-depth and I love it. It's described as deep and sophisticated blends of rustic Amber with bold Parisian Lavender (which is what I smell too!). This is combined with a mysterious Black Myrrh, dulcet vanilla Tonka bean, and a splash of Egyptian Musk. The fragrance is rounded out with a surprising addition of raw Clary Sage resulting in an earthy concoction with hints of sweetness and pleasing floral notes.
Ok so just what the heck is Adipocere? Well, it is also referred to as corpse wax, grave wax or mortuary wax and is a wax-like organic substance formed by the anaerobic bacterial hydrolysis of fat in tissue, such as body fat in corpses.
In its formation, putrefaction is replaced by a permanent firm cast of fatty tissues, internal organs, and the face. Adipocere is formed by the anaerobic (bacteria that thrives in elements where no oxygen is present) bacterial hydrolysis of fat in tissue.
The transformation of fats into adipocere occurs best in an environment that has high levels of moisture and an absence of oxygen, such as in wet ground or mud at the bottom of a lake or a sealed casket, and it can occur with both embalmed and untreated bodies. Adipocere formation begins within a month of death, and, in the absence of air, it can persist for centuries.
My Adipocere is a little different.... Its a soft body butter and I love the name so much I couldn't help but name it after the waxy morbid substance.
It has a dense, fluffy texture that makes it irresistible and is chock full of skin-loving shea butter and cocoa butter. It glides on smoothly and also contains Safflower Oil, Certified Kosher Glycerin, Vitamins A, C and E and a botanical extract blend of Chamomile, Aloe, and Lavender. Not only is it bursting with quality ingredients, its Paraben free! The smooth consistency of this body butter will provide you with a moisture indulgent feeling that will last! The color is a soft lavender and although you cannot see it, there is a light snowflake mica along with fine irridescent glitter. It will give the faintest shimmer but nothing that is too 2001 overbearing if you know what I mean!
