Scorpio For A Day – My Review Of Strange Invisible Perfumes Scorp Fragrance – AND Win!

Ava Gsrdner

My Moon is in Libra and i have Neptune (the original “strange, invisible” planet) in trine to Venus. In Pisces and the 2nd house, So i have always been mad for scent.  Once upon a time i adored the classic French fragrances – the old juices stunk of real jasmine, rose, green things. Chanel was always synthetic, i believe, but so brilliantly composed. Then accountants redesigned the formula so they were more cost-effective and maybe (?) safer, not so magic.

Then I read Slow Death By Rubber Duck – How The Toxic Chemistry Of Everyday Life Affects Our Health and freaked the fuq out.  Slumped on my carcinogenic couch,  my face moisturized with poison, i got to read how my favorite scents were not enveloping me in a protective aura of elegance but rather more like a fug of petro-chemical pure evil d.n.a. and hormone disrupting  fuquery,

Obviously i was not impressed but you can’t be a perfume nut from puberty and suddenly switch to smelling of jojoba oil and lemon myrtle soap. Or worse – when i tried some of the natural fragrances available, no names – like an “insipid old hippie.”

So i first read about Strange Invisible Perfumes a few years ago, gathered that they are entirely ethno-botanical ingredients and yet classically formulated with proper composition values (this is important) AND that the company is run by Alexandra Balahoutis, a Virgo nose and astrology obsessive, who describes herself as being “happily tormented by perfection.”   She sounds like a P.I.A.B. for sure.

I have been stalking them ever since and recently they agreed to (a) let me review their epic new range of zodiac scents and (b) give some away to you for prizes.

So, as part of a series, here is a my review of their Scorpio scent AND the person who can muster up the most Scorpionic credentials in the comments below will win one for themselves.

You can be a Scorpio, pretend to be one to win (this will appeal to Geminis, no?) and/or pay out on the Scorps in your life. I don’t care. I am looking for wit and/or pure, raw Scorpness.

So i spritzed myself with Scorpio for a day and these are my notes, transcribed directly from my phone.

*  Smells a bit like the original Y.S.L. version of Opium – when it was amazing – if it was redesigned by someone with an Ancient Egyptian fetish. It’s like something Hatshepsut would have worn.  Or omg, the idea behind the very Leo Opium but cleaned up by a Virgo.

* Cats and gay ladies definitely both like me more in this fragrance.  Super-chic Venus-Pluto-in-Scorpio boxing teacher at gym insisted on writing down name of it after saying “what’s that?!” several times. Cats followed me, meowing melodically.

* Official fragrance notes are frankincense and cinnamon with some vetiver – would not be surprised if it secretly contained mugwort or catnip as it vibes a bit magic BUT real essential oils ARE magic. That is the whole point of them. Nicholas Culpeper, the famous Libra  herbalist and astrologer said that every plant, every flower had its own spirit.

* Cinnamon is an aphrodisiac and (another ingredient) Palo Santo is a euphoric.

* This is the scent that Lestat (the rock star vampire from Interview With A Vampire) would wear, for sure.

* It made me turned onto my Scorpio aspects:

– I kept seeing 8s everywhere, like the 8th House?

– I grimly noted the hiring of Kendall Jenner by Estee Lauder as spokesmodel as the end of that era, goodbye gigantic cosmetic empires and hello niche.

– I created a schizz list – specifically New Age Bogans and sceptic Muggles who have just discovered Richard Dawkins.

–  I had to get big, black sunglasses – it felt compulsive but necessary. I could not bear anything flimsy around my eyes – windows to the soul. They needed architecture and a barrier. They had to cover the Third Eye.

– i reflected upon the power of being enigmatic and vowed to apply just such a policy. Like a science experiment, i would note the findings and apply double blinds, placebo enigmas, the whole damned deal.

Basically the Scorpio scent from Strange Invisible (1) smelled excellent in a way that is like Opium beofre they fuqed it up or the old Robert Piguet Bandit designed by the legendary Germaine Cellier but (2) did not/could not poison me as entirely natural and (3) enhanced my Scorpionic attributes.

If you would like to win a bottle of this epic perfume, go for it and Scorp out in the comments!

I just got my testers as well. I bought the Aries (my sun), Cappy (my moon), Leo (asc), Scorpio (his sun) and Gemini (his moon) and we share the same asc. I put the Scorpio on and it just smells like sex to me. I can’t wait to see him while wearing it and see what transpires. I like them all actually but I gravitated towards Scorpio immediately. Maybe when I get my income tax refund I will splurge on a full bottle.

The photo is of Ava Gardner (Capricorn) in “Pandora and the Flying Dutchman”. Her co-star was James Mason (Taurus) and the movie was written, produced and directed by Albert Lewin (Virgo). Despite all the Earth power, the movie itself is very Scorpio. The story is a supernatural mystery across time, and Gardner’s character, Pandora, is a real Scorpio – sexy, witchy and powerful.

Hi MM! Looking at all the epic comments, I don’t have a chance in hell (lol) of getting a bottle of perfume, but oooooh MY! Do I want one! I must say, my Moon is in the 7th in Libra as well ; ) I adore perfumes.So I’m just like you! (Identification and flattery will get you… Somewhere. Hopefully…) Actually, my 7th house is LOADED so my Scorpio Sun and Uranus get overrun by team Libra most of the time. Which is not the natural order AT ALL. So I really need that perfume.

The flicking tongue of the Snake, It’s tail half-eaten.
Way of the Dragon, the Scarab, the Scorpion.
Death is vibration. Life is vibration.
Scorpio sound drags, catches, flutters.

The warm dirge sung under Yggdrasil, drawing out the dragon-wyrm and the Unnamed Eagle.

Scorpio tones speak of the elusive, velvet, dark valleys
Where biofilm form in the damp hollows of the earth.
Sticky beginnings.

Persephone shouldering flower buds through
Hade’s rotting, compost roof,
Alive and crawling with earth-worms.

Maenads, their glistening red-slick bodies
Thrilling to the drum of Dionysius’ thudding Heart.

A surgeon’s knife,
The carnelian amulet pressed against the dying woman’s thigh.

This Scorpioness has Sun, Bast, Mercury & Venus in Scorpio.
She regularly loses her keys. I found them in the fridge once.
We have no idea what she thinks about.
It might be God.
But she forgives our transgressions quickly, we think her profound understanding of evil might be the reason for her compassion.

As a child, I wrote supernatural thriller stories. At 9, my father left. My tears and endearments didn’t stop his exit. The crustacean shell began to form.

Sun, Chiron, Mercury, Pluto in Scorpio fifth house, square Moon, Uranus, Jupiter in Aquarius eighth house. When I was 3, I nearly drowned to death in my family’s backyard swimming pool. I almost broke my neck when walking down our staircase when I was 10. Got into a toxic love triangle where someone threatened suicide when I was 17. Strange 7-year intervals, and I’ve always disliked the number 7. I am expecting another such incident soon since Pluto is currently on my descendant. I have very thick black hair, solid bone structure (cheekbones+ jawline), and a rather pale complexion afflicted… Read more »

It’s funny. I learnt not to share my secrets with anyone slightly Scorpio after the libran scorp frenemy shared something extremely personal (about me) with two friends of hers. Absolute disrespect. Guarantee whatever she thought she was getting revenge for was entirely a product of her own insecure, jealous imagination. She now lives in the refrigerated isolation chamber of my mind: give ’em nothin’. It will be used against you and probably not in a court of law.

I would think the Libra would cause the ‘frenemy’ aspect, but there are always less evolved Scorps slithering around. I personally have never told anyone the secrets I’ve heard- it’s less drama anyways. I conserve my energy for what’s more important, not petty revenge scenarios.

The only Scorpio I have ever loved/love zombied: We have mutual friends. We were already “friends” on social media because of said friends. We’d engaged in a few conversations via the facebook. We both new we liked the way the other one thought and looked. I’m set to come to his city for three nights as a last-minute speaker at a conference. He invites me to join him and his friends at a bar the night I get in so that we can be friends in real life and so that I’m not alone in the city. Butterflies. I get… Read more »

While I’m not a Scorpio (Taurus sun), I certainly feel the Scorpio vibe. I have Pluto rising in Virgo (at the apex of a T-Square with Venus conjunct Mars and Jupiter at the other end) and an 8th house Moon/Chiron & Mercury/Vesta conjunction (these are sextile to my Mars/Venus conjunction).

I love making one-off scents for people, from my own scent library, infusing oils and conjuring sentiments.

It’s a joy to smell and see scents by people who are doing it professionally.

I’d use this potion to douse and ignite my own Saturn & Psyche in Scorpio.

I think it would positively activate my First House Pluto.

Looking at the Strange Invisible range, the only perplexing thing is whether to buy for your Venus, AC, Eros, Sun or Moon… Or Jupiter… Or … what you lack…

Ok, I’m posting as a Scorpio Virgin.
Despite having Moon and Neptune in my 8th house of Scorpio, I’ve always shied away from the Scorpy 8th house kind of seduction/attraction/power kind of thing.
I blame my Aquarian sensibilities for this.
I freak out when I get lustful glances and yet have no problem pontificating in front of a crowd.
Yes, maybe for just one…or two days I’d like to have a crack at being able to try out that side of me. Or perhaps the Leo one……….

My Sun sign’s ruler, is also placed in the sign of Scorpio. Ive got Lilith conjunct Sun. My Pluto lives in the deep regions of my chart, near the IC. He shares his space with Ceres and Persephone.

I entered the the world in an unsatisfyingly small body. People cooed at me like idiots and I hated them. As a small child I was prone to running very fast until I hit a wall- often literally- and then crying bitter tears at the unfairness of a world that would hinder my velocity. Adults that I scared were also amused by my inability to experience shame. I would fondle store mannequins to provoke uncomfortable laughter. I would masturbate in angry isolation. In the schoolyard a child broke her fingers slapping me in the face. I felt sorry for her,… Read more »

I am an intense sexual person–even as I type this, a man just honked his horn and waved at me–even though I am just business attire and a raincoat. I basically am down for sex all the time–the cultural idea that women are less sexual than men is laughable to me.

Sounds like the ‘go’ for me with my Venus in Scorpio. I’ve always been in love with the deep, dark notes in perfumes – frankincense and myrrh, black pepper and cinnamon. These nicely counterbalance my other perfume love of the florals, jasmine and, in VERY small amounts lilly, and above all rose. Who knows a bottle of this might be just the thing to break my four year-long ‘action’ drought 🙂

Apart from the coincidental use (though we know there are no coincidences) of the glif of my favourite surrealist movie, I just know i need to have *Scorpio*. I may not be a Scorpio Sun, Moon or Rising – that would be too obvious for my liking. I even feel the need to keep my Plutonic base notes clandestine, and only pull them out unexpectedly for that surprise death lunge – easier and less mess. My Lilith in the 8th House prefers it that way. She’s been and still is in hard aspect to 5 planets transiting my Scorpio 1st… Read more »

Hmm. You know, I typically avoid movies about romantic love but I think you’ve talked me into seeing this one, lady of the isle…

I’ve found a light spritz of gasoline works when I’m in that mood, scorpio_rising. Pull out your lighter & it’s like cockroaches when the lights go up.

Very Scorpy here – with Sun conj Neptune, Mercury conj NN, all in Scorpio, and a lifetime of Pluto conjunctions to almost every planet. My great love, who worked with herbs and essential oils, made me a perfume when we first began. He called it Dalliance (he had Sag rising) and I informed him that you don’t give a Scorpio a perfume called Dalliance, with all that that implies – they might hurt you. He renamed it. We argued about blood diamonds on our first date. His Mars was conj my NN in Scorpio, his Pluto trine my Venus. In… Read more »

Now I feel like I need this fragrance for an upcoming holiday party, to go with a long sleeve thigh-length black velvet dress and dark spine-length curls. My usual scents are Gardenia or Hawaiian Ginger via essential oil (and hey, I share a Libran birthday with sir Nicholas Culpeper), but I crave something darker for slinking walls and corners at parties. I have Mercury, Venus, Pluto, and Vertex in Scorpio in the 5th. I find it hard to get into a creative mood, and maybe this scent could be just the trigger? I need silence and transparent air, I need… Read more »

My draconian chart is all scorp, with my moon-Venus-etc directly on my natal Pluto. I almost only wear black (maybe with small dashes of red), plus skull, hematite, and copper bracelets. Sunglasses always. I failed to kill my 5th grade teacher with the force of my hatred, but everyone I’ve wished dead since then has died, so I’ve learned to just not. Except the evil patriarchal cult at my parents’ – they are possibly crumbling under the weight of internal discord! I seem to be quite fond of invoking demons and never banishing. I have no self. I have a… Read more »

As an Aries I don’t care about Scorpio scents. But I went and checked to see what is in the perfumes for Aries and my rising sign (Aquarius) and moon sign (Cancer), since Mystic’s advice to dress for your rising sign was so helpful…

Verdict: I would wear the Aquarius scent ANY day, would have to smell the Aries scent before buying and probably wouldn’t wear it every day, and can’t stand most of the smells (patchouli and vanilla: yuuuuuck!) in the Cancer perfume.

Fixating. Must have. Though now I am buzzing to have the wittiest comment and this is like a boulder to the creative juice-fall. Waterfall. Get it? Essie makes a nailpolish called wicked. Chem fuqery try me. Do anything for them cleo nails. Cleopatra. I put it on for a wedding because i wanted people to find my silence edgy. Silent bc i had a gazillion essays to write this month for school. Wasn’t sleeping bc couldn’t get them all done before i went to sleep. Happened each night. Kinda thing that you have to chip away at one day at… Read more »

Edit:: not Recovering. Persephone on Ostara. Know she’s seen some shi down there with her BF, but he’s a good dude so it’s all cool, warming up and getting sprightly. Shield of Skathach

I’ve been accused of being a Scorpio. The intensity of pheromones, if not my gaze, and jet black hair. I guess it’s the aura of I’m my own person, I compete with no one, and I don’t let anyone close enough to mess my vibe. My fragrances are floral around the boys, when I want to flirt; musky when I’m feeling feral; and vanilla when I’m wanting sex; and oud or spicey (like the Amouage line) when I want to be mysterious.

Amouage Lyric Woman is a gorgeous, gorgeous perfume – one of my favorites – I think my Taurus-Rising-Venus-ruled chart has a razor-sharp instinct for the most expensive and exquisite perfumes.

the amouage line is amazing. its too strong at first, but when it dies down, it’s absolutely unique and gorgeous. it takes me to arabian nights. i’m always looking for the perfect oud, feminine.

oh my. your writings about this perfume are incredible. i love that you noticed more 8s, that ladies were more attracted to you, and that you had to buy big sunnies. i want that. so i majorly scorp it up, with my leo sun and virgo merc in 8th, midheaven at 0 scorp, and pluto in scorpio. as someone else had said, i totally vibe “i know something you don’t know” and it’s not just that i vibe it – it’s damn TRUE. i’m simultaneously easily approachable and super mysterious. which works in my favour because only people who are… Read more »

Give up Chance by Chanel? I wont. Given the poisons all around us I choose to morph with it. Triple down on the caffeine and Monsanto corn! Massive downsides of failing organs and manzanita bones, but there could be upsides of seeing in the dark and growing a carcinogenic exo-derma that’s no longer needs the sunscreen hassle for my bullet stopping skin. Sure, I may be mistaken for a para-military chupacabra but all will say, “but the bitch-monstra smelled amazing.”

Mystic, I imagine applying this lovely sounding scent while lounging in front of a fire on a fur-skinned rug, in black lingerie, while drinking a spicy shiraz. Perhaps my younger boyfriend will be there, but perhaps I shall be alone, thinking and laughing about past lovers, former friends and smiling at my current place in life because a true Scorpio knows the best revenge is to live well.

Sun in Libra conjunct Pluto/Mercury in Scorpio. Saturn in Scorpio conjunct my Scorpio Ascendent. The raw deal childhood. Emotional abuse and abandonment. The early exposure to sex murder and death- but also passion, power and deep spirituality. At school I was an outcast, but at the ashram I was a star, with huge smokey eyes I almost looked Indian. I was voted to be the princess at the play every time. I shared my deep 8 year old thoughts with masses of people and they murmured to themselves. The Guru Mayi glided down the lushly decorated hall and grabbed my… Read more »

Oh, YSL’s Opium was my spooky topaz cloud of olfactory accessory once upon a good time… mmm… Felines, snakes, slinky black mini dresses, my American History teacher… Like a phermone-fueled pied piper in my Opium. And speaking of opium, *once* I smoked some with some girlfriends in the middle of a wood in the middle of a summer night, and I’ll never forget the way that smelled… So mysteriously sublime to me, this gold lavender smoke combined with the smell of the trees, owls hooting & girls cackling… Euphoric recall: I’m having it! I saw this the other day &… Read more »

VIDEO GIRL. Most scorpionic/plutonic/kaliesque psychopomposity I’ve ever seen. Came out on the Scorpio eclipse, I think.
Ooh the smell of opium! Like nothing else. Mmmmmmmmm

🙂 Yes, the (Scorpio) Force is strong with this one! She has one video I couldn’t watch all the way through… the one with her & a dude, a lot of choking/gagging happening… ? Nope. Made me ill. But that’s how intense she is. Love her hairdo in this vid!

Funny you posted this, as I watched this movie Short Stay 12 (I think it was called) today & my mind was on the whole 12th house/institutional theme when I found you here. Guaranteed we always check out/move on, one way or another… xx

Scorpio in my bones
In my blood
In my bed
Horizons ablaze
From my flaming arrows
My humble tributaries
To the Gods that
Manufacture my lust
My concealed fate
Rule the house that seethes
With black cloudy smoke

We breathe deeply in the 8th.
