Hekate is the Goddess of night, the Goddess of witches, spells & magic. This fragrance captures the darker aspects of perfumery & draws inspiration from the fragrant materials of autumn. Dark & mysterious, full of resins, spices & woods, this perfume invokes the darker aspects of nature in a powerful way.
It opens with heady fir balsam, dried apricots & mulling spices. The heart then swells with notes of honey, cedarwood, cypress & patchouli. Base notes of Castoreum, Cambodian Oud, Myrrh, Orris root & Sandalwood lend to a long, luxurious dry down that offers changing nuance to explore.

DID YOU KNOW?
Natural Perfume may appear slightly cloudy at times or particulate may be visible floating in the bottle. This is normal for perfumes containing high quantities of natural resins & waxes. I filter my natural perfumes multiple times before bottling, but due to changes in temperature & aging, a small amount of sediment may appear over time. This does not negatively affect the performance of the perfume. In fact, these natural waxes & resins are highly scented aromatic materials that will melt into your skin when applied, giving the perfume an enhanced richness & longevity. Enjoy!

Complex, deep, rich, animalic, intoxicating, long lasting.
I consider myself a bit of a perfume connoisseur - I own over 60 fragrances from mostly Niche and Indie perfume houses...Companies like Zoologist, Etat Libre D' Orange, Killian, Imaginary Authors, Frederic Malle, January Scent Project and many more...I am telling you this because Darren Alan has very quickly soared to the TOP of my list of absolute favorite perfumers! Shout out to Chirs and Camille from Making a Stink on YouTube! They introduced me to Darren and now I am OBSESSED! I bought Hekate, Chypre No. 1 and many samples (I am debating on what I want to get next) But TRUST me - Hekate and Chypre No. 1 are sooooo fantastic! So unique, mysterious, RICH and intricately crafted! I am speechless...Thank You Darren, these are just breathtaking. You have a skill that I would say rivals most fragrance masters out there today - Please keep going - I cannot wait to smell more of your creations! These fragrances you have created are haunting - hauntingly beautiful to me - I am in love! With all Sincerity, Sara W. (Florida USA)
This scent is amazing! It’s dark and spicy. I feel both feminine and witchy when I wear this scent. Highly recommended!
I've never smelled a perfume like this before. When I spray it on, if I close my eyes, I'm literally transported to a deep, dark forest on a chilly autumn night. Pine trees, rotting leaves, pumpkin spice & some gorgeous woody, earthy base. The pine & cinnamon are a bit strong at first, but in a crisp, refreshing way. They quickly mellow out to reveal an elegant, soft woody & musky base. I also do smell the dried apricot & honey which oddly is not sweet. This is a dry, woody fragrance. I bought a 10mL but am ordering a full size before they are all gone. Such a unique & sophisticated scent!
