As we move into fall, October brings about the changing of leaves, orange pumpkins, hot cider and the deep warmness of the stone representing this month: Amber. The Amber stone, which is actually not a stone but fossilized tree resin, which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times is said to have powerful healing strength given to the person who wears it. The lovely warm stone helps balance the emotions, clears the mind and eases stress.

The Tibatan culture has a rich history of decorative ornaments that play an important role in Tibetan families’ lives. The ornaments are passed down from generation to generation and announce the social status and event of the wearer. Their culture is very conservative about the type of ornaments favored: for thousands of years jewelry made from amber, turquoise and coral have been worn because the stones are believed to hold spiritual power.

” My Amber fragrance is one of my favorite in my entire line. I wear it at least 3 days a week. It is part of the original 5 fragrances upon the first launch of my collection, 15 years ago. It has maintained its status for over a decade as being one the top sellers within the (current)collection of 19 scents. It is an incredibly sexy scent that is unisex and attracts men and women alike. Personally I love a unisex scent, I think to find a scent that appeals to both women and men is quite rare and makes for a must have for any perfumista! “
Amber: (Birthstone for October) A fragrance of singular power and depth. Amber is inspired by those golden, light-filled stones formed from the resin of ancient trees. Its succulent blood orange top note streams like the sun’s rays through notes of labdanum, Tunisian Amber and musk. Legend states that Amber was used by sorcerers and magicians to promote strength, healing and protection. This fragrance is itself an emboldening yet profoundly calming talisman.
