These natural botanical essences are olfactory interpretations of the Norse concepts of wyrd and orlog; fate and destiny in general.
Urd - earthy scent of wet moss, fresh herbs, soil and lasting, complex woody notes.
This essence is made with only the finest natural essential oils and ingredients, that are blended into a base of fermented alcohol and bottled in a handmade Czech glass vial with an atomizer.
Urd brings us back into our past, our roots and to “what has been”, where we come from. She is the foundation we are built from.
Imagine coming to Urd’s well, deep down at the roots of Yggdrassil. The wet moss crunches at your feet where the moist soil gives life and nourishment to deepest roots of the Tree of Life. It is also the tree of your life. As you stand there, asking for an audience with Urd, to gleam the path you have taken so far, your own feet sprout tiny roots to drink in gulps the waters of the Well of Destiny. These root show you the way to your own thread of the great tapestry and let you touch the places your thread had already been woven through. You see where it twines with the treads of your parents and even further back to their ancestors. You can see the heritage that has brought you to where you are now.
When you see your past, understand it, and learn from it, you will see and understand the paths that have lead you to the present. Choices that you have made and choices, that have been made for you long before you were born are what has build the foundation, your orlog and what will help you understand and influence your wyrd.
Urd, the essence, honors these roots and the fertile soil that has given us life. It’s substances are earthy smells; vetiver, patchouli and various roots intermingled with green mossy notes and herb leaves crushed underfoot as you yourself dig deeper. The string, stable and long lasting scent of labdanum, white sandalwood and sacred frankincense lingers long after the flower has outgrown it roots.
This perfume is made exclusively with natural ingredients of the highest quality - pure and rare essential oils, absolutes and hand-extracted tinctures and infusions.
