Telinum Fragrance Balm / Caesar’s Cologne / The Empress’s Perfume *LUPERCALIA COLLECTION*



  • Details
    Oils, balms, & powders were often used as fragrances by the Ancient Romans. They believed that fragrance was a direct connection to the gods & by having a trail of fragrance or smoke leading from this world to the cosmos, it would attract the gods’ blessings.

    Telinum was a greasy balm that was created with a mixture of an emollient (like, beeswax) & other oils derived from raw materials, particularly Fenugreek, Sweet Clover, & Marjoram. This was also said to be Caesar’s favorite scent to wear.

    Our take on Telinum is a gender neutral fragrance balm that is skin safe & can be applied on the neck, wrists, or anywhere else externally. This balm is hardened with beeswax for a long lasting fragrance balm. Just run your index finger into it lightly for a light scent or you can apply more pressure to release more balm & more scent. The scent is very alluring with sweet sugary notes, fruits, floras, & herbs. The more you use it, the more fragrant it will become!

    This balm contains:

    Organic Beeswax: Beeswax itself was used for its binding properties as a poultice, emollient, skincare & healing, & embalming the dead.

    Organic Grape Seed Oil: (carrier oil base) Representing the grapes that were utilized for their medicinal, culinary, & fragrant qualities. Grape seed oil is also a non-greasy carrier oil for safe application.

    Fenugreek: (sweet maple syrup scent) considered a sacred embalming, Fenugreek represents growth, fertility, abundance, prosperity.

    Marjoram: (herbaceous, sweet, & woodsy) often used for cleansing, attracting love, strengthening love, & protecting love.

    Sweet Clover: (sweet & earthy) an offering to deities, used to attract & honor the spirits.

    Comes in a 1/2 glass jar with brass twist lid sealed with our stamp of approval! It comes wrapped in a black gift box.

    This perfume oil is very fragrant with the scent of dragons blood & the sweet, fruity notes of pomegranate. It can be applied to the wrists & neck for high fragrance.
