Contacting Conjure

Hey there!

I was trying out the new page style over at FB only to realize I had several inquiries posted to the page that I had never seen. One from July stating that she never got her order! This is horrifying to me. I value the communication I have with all of you. In fact, it's right up there with all of my favorite things!

So please, email me at vajra at conjureoils dot com with any questions or concerns and I'll blow your mind with some fantastic customer service. I promise!

Happy Leap Day! Don't forget to order Bissextile Curious? :D



Monday, February 27, 2012


Once every four years, a spectacular day is sandwiched snugly in between February 28th and March 1st. Most commonly known as Leap Year, February 29th allows for the alignment of human time with the chaos of the cosmos. More specifically, it was created in the Gregorian calendar to ensure that the Vernal Equinox is as close to March 21 as possible. This assures that the Christian holiday of Easter will fall on the full moon on or after the first day of spring. This is where the curious comes in - because that arrangement seems splendidly pagan if you ask me!

So, join me in celebrating the human desire to create order out of chaos and ride the wild waves of the cosmos - all so we can celebrate rebirth and resurrection by basking in the light of the full moon.

A union of time and space: A sky riddled with distant and dry vanilla stars set in a void of black musk, red dwarf myrrh, and deep sandalwood.

In other news...

NYX has been added to the Mythos collection in the general catalog. It was just too good to see go.

{Greek Goddess of the Night}
Nyx is the exceedingly dark, beautiful, powerful and unknowable Greek goddess of the Night who witnessed the birth of all of creation. She is Mother of the deepest mysteries that have haunted humanity since the beginning of time: The Mother of Moros (Doom), Styx (Hate), Hypnos (Sleep) & Thanatos (Death) and many, many others.

Egyptian myrrh, amber resin, opium tar, antique patchouli, moonflower, black tea and tonka bean.

Also, the Paczki series as well as Revolution 36 and Erzulie's Kiss are still available! Just look at the last two updates listed beneath this one on the website.

So, there you have it! Have a great Leap Year's Day and howl at the moon for me! See you again in four years with another installment...

Laissez les bons temps rouler! Pastry inspired perfume! LIVE!


Celebrate Fat Tuesday Conjure style once again with our Polish pastry inspired perfume oils! Growing up in Southeastern Michigan like I did, it wasn't hard to find a box of these delectable sweet treats! For those who don't know what a paczki is, (pronounced "poonchky") it's like a large huge doughnut stuffed to the brim with various intoxicatingly sweet fillings ranging from traditional plum and rose hip jam to more modern conventions like Bavarian custard, apple or raspberry. Though it's no typical doughnut - the paczki is sweeter and spongier. They can be topped with powdered or granulated sugar, or with icing. Truly, the mortal doughnut pales in comparison!

Paczki are a convenient way to get all of the sugar, fat and temptation out of the house before the sparse season of Lent rears it head. Fortunately, we've conjured a great way to get the paczki experience throughout whilst avoiding the calories as well! It's like magic! Indulge!

Conjure Paczki Selections:

Plum Jam Paczki
Sweet dough is filled with black plum jam and dusted with refined powdered sugar.

Bavarian Custard Paczki
Fried pastry dough filled with thick vanilla Bavarian custard and coated with granulated vanilla sugar.

Rose Hip Jam Paczki
Fresh paczki are served warm, overflowing with rose hip jam and drizzled with sweet honey sugar glaze.

Set of all three Paczki
Order all three types of Paczki in a set!

Paczki will available until March 21th, or we sell out! And I must say this: while these do indeed smell good enough to eat, they are not in any way, shape or form intended for consumption, human or animal. External use only!

Birthdays, Balms and More: Revolution 36, Erzulie's Kiss & Hypnos are LIVE!

Birthdays, Balms and More: Revolution 36, Erzulie's Kiss & Hypnos are LIVE!

For 36 years now I've had the privilege of spinning around the splendid sun upon this gorgeous blue-green marble, swirling and whirling through the blackness of space. During these 36 years, I've endured traumas so horrific that I was launched head long into the weary depths of sadness; a darkness so vast that I thought I'd never again see the sun rise anew in my soul. I've also been treated to wonders, thrills and to love so shimmering and pure that it coursed through the maze of my veins as if I were filled not by blood, but by an incandescent liquid joy.
As I witness each day rise, grow and then succumb to the night, I look deeply within myself and see an accumulation of wisdom and experience. As a child, I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up; I always figured the path would reveal itself to me over time. I now know that the path doesn't just appear. There may be hints, suggestions and clues about its whereabouts along the way, but truly, the revelation of my soul's purpose becomes this gentle yet profound realization: it's been underfoot all along. There is no destination after all. It's the love shared along the way that matters.

Celebrate my 36th revolution with me!

Antony & Cleo 2012
According to legend it was love at first sight between Cleopatra, the last Pharaoh of Egypt and Marc Antony, the Roman General and friend of Julius Caesar. The two would eventually marry, have three children and as a family, rule much of the region. 

The truth is lost in the mists of history, but some say that Marc Antony killed himself by falling on his sword when he heard a false rumor that his beloved Cleopatra had died. Others say that when the tides of war turned against the couple, they escaped together then, to avoid capture, Marc Antony committed suicide. When Cleopatra, who by this time was already imprisoned by Octavian and could no longer bear the grief of her dwindling empire, heard the news about the death of her dear Marc Antony she poisoned herself by snake bite. With the help of her sympathetic servants, she hid a small asp in a basket of figs, donned her royal robes, reclined upon her couch of gold and placed the venomous snake upon her breast.

A complex and ancient stymmata recreated to commemorate the general: juniper berries macerated in a base of sandalwood imported from the Far East, royal musk, cyclamen, sweet flag, blue lavender, myrtle, cypress, labdanum and victorious bay laurel.

Cleopatra understood the power of scent and utilized it to her advantage. It is said she first met Marc Antony upon a ship equipped with large billowing incense censers and perfumed sails that scented the entire port.
A legendary queen, seductress, mathematician and strategist, Cleopatra is remembered in this beguiling fragrance:  Egyptian sandalwood, myrrh resin, honeysuckle, orris root, serpentine cinnamon and black fig. 

The Breath of Isis & The Jewel of Osiris 2012
No other gods could boast of love as deep and pure as the love shared by Isis and Osirs. Out of jealousy, Osiris was murdered by his brother, Set, and his body was divided into fourteen parts and scattered to the four corners. Isis, stricken ill with grief and despair, frantically searched the world over for her lover's body parts. She discovered all but one, as the phallus of Osiris had been eaten by a fish! Undaunted, crafty Isis fashioned a new phallus for her husband out of pure gold. She then embalmed him and with one giant breath filled with love, passion, longing, grief and ecstasy, brought Osiris back to life to rule the Underworld.

The Breath of Isis
Lotus root, tonka bean, sweet pea blossoms, neroli, black currant absolute and an opoponax tear drop.

The Jewel of Osiris
Guiacwood, oakmoss, black patchouli, crimson plum, golden bergamot and cassia

Khosrow & Shirin 2012
Khosrow and Shirin are two lovers immortalized by ancient Persian poets. Khosrow is a handsome prince who is taken with tales of a beautiful princess living in a nearby kingdom. Khosrow, anxious to meet his future bride, can wait no longer and travels with his best friend to Shirin's land to meet her. Shirin is then courted with Khosrow's amazing feats of strength and daring until at long last, she's convinced that he's truly her soul mate.

Bold cardamom cream is exalted with scarlet carnation, golden frankincense and amber resin.

Sweet and seductive: silken jasmine, royal rose, gentle geranium, vanilla blossom, red musk, sweet patchouli and molten honey.

Sir Lancelot & Lady Guinevere 2012
Torn between their loyalty to King Arthur and their desire for one another, it can be argued that the love between Guinevere and Lancelot weakened the integrity of the Round Table. Truly star-crossed lovers from the start, Lancelot and Guinevere never had a chance. Even after the death of Arthur, Lancelot was denied a final kiss from his beloved as she'd joined a convent with the intention of never seeing the face of Lancelot again.

Sir Lancelot
Aged leather, almond, shining musk, nutmeg, black tea, vanilla sugar and smoked sandalwood.

Lady Guinevere
Tuberose, sweet cream, juicy apricot, cherry blossoms, rosewood and the softest blush of pink grapefruit.

Lupertine Resurrected 2012
5ml Brown Apothecary Bottles - $18
5ml Brown Apothecary Bottle Glass Roll-On -$19



A complex and mysterious melange of black musk incense, white sandalwood, spicy red carnation, oud, and Moroccan geranium with a sparkle of sweet orange.


This sultry Spanish libertine's seductive folly led him straight to the gates of Hell, however the magnetic allure of his eponymous fragrance is nothing short of Heavenly.

Saffron and sable Moorish woods are seduced by bundles of white lavender, masculine amber and black musk.


Biblically, harlots were devoted prostitutes who worked in service of the great goddess Astarte, the Syrian Venus.

Temple incense, dried blood red roses, labdanum, osmanthus, tuberose and oud.


Seduced by a scoundrel on the Seven Seas; a bodice-ripper in it's own right. Passionate pirate kisses plunder the depths of her black heart.

Sweltering Tahitian vanilla heat, a mahogany headboard, silken crimson sheets pulled tight and notes of golden honey ooze over mouth-watering coconut mounds.


She first appeared in the 11th or 12th century as a stone carving found on churches, castles and gates in Britain and Ireland and was believed to be an apotropaic charm – a true testament to the female mysteries.
Sheela-Na-Gig, often considered as a Goddess, is a powerful symbol of a woman's relationship with her sexuality, her body and the power that lies therein. She is depicted as a grinning bald woman displaying her exaggerated vulva for the world to behold. Imagine what would happen if we were proudly willing to share the most sacred parts of ourselves without reservation. Allow Sheela's bold defiance of misogyny to empower you!

A daring mix of enchanted herbs and flowers sacred to the ancient Celts of the British Isles evoke he feeling of watching the sun set behind the towering megaliths of Stonehenge: rolling green hills, dusky heather, the gossamer fruit of the Sidhe and sacred vervain.


Shunga were sexually explicit Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints produced in the 16th and 19th centuries. Men and women from all stations in life took great pleasure in these erotic "pillow books" as they were often given as gifts to newly-wedded couples. The lascivious images in these books were highly idealized, stylized and featured innumerable steamy situations with raw desire and opulent fantasy.

A suggestive blend of impassioned dark amber resin clinging to delicate white ginger lilies as tendrils of Asian opium smoke swirl about the charged atmosphere.


Irish Gaelic

An inspired scent that evokes swirling mists through ancient apple orchards, oak leaves, cool rain and emerald moss.
Mlle. Victoria's Lupertine Burlesque Cabaret, True Love Never Dies 2012 & Lupertine Resurrected 2012 will be LIVE until March 21, or until supplies are exhausted.
