VIII: A Tudor Cologne Oil

30.00

 

Before he became the rotund, belligerent king of his twilight years, young King Henry VIII was a stylish youth deeply interested in the arts, education, sport, and was a devout Catholic called a Defender of the Faith by Pope Leo X. As the second son of Henry VII, he was never expected to become king, but when he did, he did so with lavish excess and cultivated an image of a Renaissance man. Henry VIII's obsession with producing a male heir (partly his own vanity, and partly a desire to avoid another War of the Roses) is what led to the two things he is widely known for: the English Reformation and his six wives. 

England's most famous king had a soft spot for the finer things in life and was said to wear a concoction of ambergris and civet, two of the finest scents of the time. This cologne oil inspired by the illustrious Tudor has notes of ambergris, belladonna, clovebud, tobacco, bay leaf, fire, and Peru balsam. 

*Belladonna, also known as Deadly Nightshade, is a poisonous plant and as such I use a fragrance oil for safety reasons*

Ingredients: Jojoba oil, fragrance oils, essential oils

Size: 9ml

Maker: Immortal Perfumes
Made in Seattle, WA
