The tree of life after Dr. Ellen Covey
Cool is the small temple you guard. Here you squat and meditate to your Manasarova through a window in the rock, singing Swami's mantra out onto the sacred lake of your plateau. There the swan Hamsa swims, bright and clear under the Hamsa of the sun, the lemon that is devoted to you, shining alive in the early frost. There you rise, Hamsa, as a free bird above the first orange colours of the fleshy sparkling apricot in the still lake You'll see through the hand-shaped hamsa that keeps dark djinn at a distance, through the magical defensive spell of the eye that reflects the evil eye. Like through a kaleidoscope of your power you look and close your eyelids. Soon the fruit of the earth has disappeared, the aromatically cool lemon, soon the earthy smoke of myrrh found as Sefirot's counterpart. If ethereal Palo Santo mists the ceremonies with sweetish cognac, bitter mastic resin grows like grass over amber tree avenues where tobacco you believe in its branches, which lean sweetly towards the earth. There bright incense envelops your small temple, dips it in thousands of drops of balm, which you direct against your inner devils, in meditation quite calmly. Now everything is in tense harmony, Jin and Jang, wood and resin, cool and warm, tart and sweet, fruit and smoke, ethereal and soft like the tree of life, before Hamsa, the path to the highest liberation, extends as a slightly creamy path of sandalwood and light fruity eagle resins into an almost invisible mist of incense.
"Hamsa" is Dr. Ellen Covey's contribution to the "Çafleurebon Talisman Project", for which she also created fragrances like "Antimony" (Christie Meshell, House of Matriarch), "Become the Shaman" (Dawn Spencer-Hurwitz, DSH Perfumes), "Guardian" (Angela St. John, Solstice Scents), "Figa" (Shelley Waddington, En Voyage Perfumes) or "Touchstone" (Amber Jobin, Aether Arts Perfumes), and which thematizes the fragrance as a magical talisman. Covey arranged the individual fragrances in it as contrasting pairs, in the style of Sefirot, the tree of life in the Kabbalah. The fragrance is not intended to act as protection in itself, but rather to remind us of our own powers against evil. After the clarifying freshness at the beginning, the grassy-green, balsamic-smoky, fruity resinous heart, "Hamsa" has a very meditative and calming effect on me, not only in the above described basis. "Hamsa" envelops me for about five to six hours moderately to skin-tight.
