Häxan is a tribute to the silent film of the same name by the Danish director Benjamin Christensen which was produced in Sweden in 1922 and also appeared. It's a mixture of feature film and documentary. In Germany he appeared in 1924 under the name Hexen. Pryn Lomros of Parfum Prissana has dedicated a fragrance to this ancient masterpiece with Häxan. Häxan is intended to remind us of all the occult places and mysteries where witchcraft and black magic were performed. It is also said to contain many of the ancient ingredients needed for black and white spells, elixirs and potions. And there are tons of them in Häxan!
Häxan does not only smell of witchcraft, he is also true witchcraft. To anticipate one thing, Häxan is basically a Fougére. He doesn't smell like a witch's brew of a hundred fragrances that brings tears to one's eyes and burns in one's nose. Rather, it revolves around three very noble and fine lavender notes. They serve as the basis for everything that comes. And there's a lot more to it! A soft bed of moss continues to serve as the basis. Aromatic woody notes of
Fir, pine needle, wormwood, styrax, birch, sandalwood and guaiac appear first. Then it gets a little more herbaceous and spicy with
Rosemary, thyme, nutmeg, tobacco, cinnamon, violet leaf, vetiver, marjoram, basil and mushrooms. Animal tendencies gently beat through beeswax, civet, castoreum, leather, hyrax, musk and what I personally find most interesting is the smell of algae. There is a phase in Häxan where you think you are standing by the sea or you look deep into an ancient algal well. Very exciting! Resinous notes of Galbanum,Olibanum,Opoponax,Labdanum and Patchouli are also included.
There are so many notes and chords that it's hard to believe. And I only mentioned a fraction of it. You always smell something different. The scent is constantly in motion and changes the scent color and the notes as if it wanted to transform itself constantly, but can not decide in what. It is like light and shadow or like ebb and flow. A good spell and an evil spell. A spirit or demon that constantly takes possession of a new body. You want to think he's alive!
Prin Lomros has created a miracle in my eyes, which even I had not yet got to know in all my years. Häxan is really like an enchanted elixir. It is like a black, magical mirror out of which shapes try again and again to come to light, but which are withdrawn again and again into the darkness. Faces made of scents that look at you constantly and briefly say their names before they have disappeared again. It is incredible how quickly this fragrance changes again and again. Häxan is an extremely light and portable perfume despite its immense accumulation of dark and dense tones. If you have it on your skin, it looks almost weightless and floating. It is in no way oppressive or heavy, which is probably due to the existing lavender tones and the Moss which is constantly present in some form. The fragrance also has an extremely good adhesion and longevity of 8 to 10 hours loosely on the skin. On the clothes you can still see it even after days.
Häxan is magic, alchemy, shaman magic and witchcraft in its most beautiful form. A portable, beautiful curse, love spell or spell. Fascinating, mystical and mysterious. But the true sorcerer is Pryn Lomros who in my eyes is an absolute exceptional talent and in my opinion has outdone himself with his witchcraft.
