Scentelligence: Frankincense and Myrrh
Posted on December 14 2018
We are pleased to welcome Myrrh to our extensive collection of fragrances this Holiday season!
It's impossible to talk about Myrrh without talking about its sister fragrance, Frankincense. You've probably heard of Frankincense and Myrrh, but if you aren't exactly sure what either one is, you aren't alone! Both are difficult to spell, associated with the birth of Jesus in Christianity, and perhaps a bit mysterious. But we are here to help unlock the mystery.
Both Frankincense and Myrrh are resins derived from the sap of trees. Both scents are on the bolder, stronger side. Frankincense is sweet, warm, and woodsy, while Myrrh is more earthy with slight licorice notes. If you are looking for a Christmasy fragrance that is a departure from the classic pine and sugary-sweet scents of the season, Frankincense and Myrrh just might be the scents for you!
Try creating your own custom scent blending Frankincense and Myrrh with other woodsy, earthy scents like Agarwood, Teakwood, Clove, Sandalwood, Patchouli, etc, or play up their sweeter side by blending with Santa's Pipe, Cedar, Vanilla Bean, etc. You can purchase Frankincense and Myrrh in candle, fragrance oil, reed diffuser, room spray, or wax tart form on our website or in any of our stores.
