Lady's Essentials

Oils from Lady's Essentials are made for the real fragrance lover, aromatherapist, or magick practitioner.  They properly make the distinctions between a fragrance blend, a fragrance oil, an essential oil, and a resin oil.  For this reason, they are one of the top scent suppliers in Ebay, and are often a supplier for other scent specialists.

...and they have just about everything.  What they don't have, you can request.

I have bought the following oils from them, and was initially very pleased.  I could smell that they were freshly mixed, and closed them so that they could age and blossom.  Months later, I went from very pleased to EXTREMELY pleased by what I smelled.  They're beautiful and strong, and I still haven't used all of the few vials that I bought.


This was the subject of some controversy when people who hadn't smelled the real thing before, were confused when they openned their vials.  I can personally attest though, that it smells like the real thing even on the skin after some hours.  It also causes the...normal reactions.

What you get when you buy the oil is an oil-ambergris solution of consistent but unknown concentration.  There's no way to tell exactly how much ambergris to base oil there is, but it is strong enough that if you open the one dram vial, you'll be smelling it in the air for awhile.  There's no alcohol in the mix, so the cloud of scent is just coming from the amount of ambergris that's in it.  It's some good stuff.

So far, I've used it to make a few 50ml pots of lotion, a solid perfume, and an apathy curing aromatherapy mix.  All clients were very satisfied.

African Musk

Have you ever smelled a guy who you just had to be close to just to breathe the air around him?  Maybe he was wearing African Musk.  Different companies have different blends, but Lady's Essentials got this one on lock.  It's musky but it doesn't hit you over the head with it.  It has that sort of "ibex" tone that Egyptian musk has, but it's not as tangy.  It has an almost floweriness to it. 

When a woman wears it, it will make her feel very sexy, and when a man wears it, he smells very attractive.  This is a must-have for anyone's scent collection.  Use it alone or as a booster for other musk compatible smells.

China Rain

Lady's blend of China Rain is unique.  It is as pretty as the one most folks are used to, but it totally lacks the burn in the back of the nose.  It is very fresh, and very clean smelling.  It's more like a rainy day in spring than in fall...sweet, but not dank.  I find it very relaxing.

Opium Resin Oil

My signature scent is a combination of Opium and Egyptian Musk, so I buy them regularly.  I was and am still very pleased with Lady's version of Opium.  It's actually an improvement on the YSL one, in my opinion, because the ingredients haven't been killed by alcohol.  If you wear Opium, then this is a good layer to add to your regime.

White Musk

Another scent that smells totally different and exponentially better when it hasn't been mutilated by alcohol, Lady's White Musk is just fabulous.  It's subtle in the bottle, but very strong on the skin, so take care to dilute it into some lotion or use sparingly.

Because it hasn't been tampered with overmuch, it is an excellent booster for any musk compatible perfume.  My favorite mixer with this is Al Rehab's Full.  It turns a "nice..." into a "rrrrrowr..."
