My Review (+ Competition) of Strange Invisibles Capricorn

Craig McDean

So in case you have not been following this, i am going through the whole Zodiac Collection of Strange Invisible Perfumes astrological perfume array, reviewing each one and offering up a bottle as a prize to the most cool-resonant commenter.

The reason for my interest in this company is (1) that the scents are all natural, plant based, ethno-botanical – non chemical and that (2) it was started by a Virgo Nose who is a bona fide astro-fiend. So there is some Pseudo Intellectual Astro Bitch sensibility behind the range.  Even the name – Strange Invisible – is a reference to Neptune which, of course, rules perfume.

Scorpio is here. Sagittarius is here. But lets get on with Capricorn, our lady of Saturn, chrome and steel.  The blurb:

 Ruled by Saturn, Capricorn is famous for a nearly heroic sense of commitment, patience, and drive. Iris, frankincense, and Tahitian vanilla speak to Capricorn’s earthy, sensual side and strong need for stability. Neroli, jasmine, and white Cognac invite Capricorn to let go of routine and enjoy the rewards of spontaneity.

Right off i have to say that this is not my favorite S.I.P. scent but it’s the IRIS.

Iris is like tuberose – it is very singular scent vibe and you’re either aligned with it or you are not. Iris is the Goddess of the Rainbow – the iris of the eye refers to her.  The old gods and goddesses are still everywhere. As a flower essence, she is said to provide psychic protection and dissolve limitation.

SO far so good, but it’s a fragrant note that does not work for everyone.  The frankincense adds a fantastically Borgia note to the whole deal. Lucrezia in the confession box trying to get someone taken out so she can dissolve limitations lol.

BUT Capricorn is my 12th House so maybe i have some odd insecurities around Capricorn themed essences?  We so often repress our 12th House energies.

This scent is brilliantly composed though and actually reminds me of what the perfume critic wrote about Chanel No 19: “Haughty and immune to sweetness, with a somewhat antiseptic air, this extraordinary perfume appeals to anyone who has ever wished to know what it is to be heartless.” 

Its how Jean Patou’s 1000 – a scent supposed to evoke wealth and patrician power – should have smelled. It would have made F Scott Fitzgerald swoon, it smells so of money. It’s urbane, witty and informed like Michael Lewis books.

It’s what Kate Moss probably smelled like when she swanned out of her house past the media – it’s always zero comment with her – after that cocaine scandal.

Or Tyra Banks (Lilith + Venus in Capricorn) going to Harvard Business School to wrest back control of her brand. It’s a structured, don’t fuq with me fragrance. It’s not a power scent – too subtle and well-bred – it’s a Strategy Scent.

Put your thoughts on all this and/or your take on the Tao Of Capricorn in the comments to win a bottle of this juice!   I will pick the winner by the weekend!

I live in LA, so I thought I’d go to the actual shop on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach. I think you’d love it. Minimal esthetic. Very chic. Everything in its place. They also have non-toxic skin care from Odacite, and Mia Lindstrom, and Flower Remedies from Alexis Smart. Highly recommend all of their products. They asked how I heard about them, and I told them you were a huge fan. The two lovely sales people said they’d look you up. I got the sample sizes for Leo and Taurus. I wanted one for Aquarian Rose, but they were out.… Read more »

Cap sun at 0 cap ascendant and merc all in the 12th. Where does one begin…constant reinvention since 2008. Nothing dramatic all steps on steps – a manageable reinvention. What i love about perfume and i was drawn to a new scent just last week – it is decadent, frivolous and layers me up when everyhing has been about losing layers these past few years. I am so very aware of what I carry these days. I choose simplicity and am ultra aware of carrying more that i can need. When i don my new scent I am reminded of… Read more »

F. Scott Fitz. would indeed swoon over any woman wearing the Capi fragrance. As Venus in Capricorn, it bears a signature of luxury worn and adorned by the air of an sophisticated peep like the photo image above suggests. But I don’t believe the facial semiotics of the model are of a Capi sun/rising.

The fragrance delineates its air de wealth through its earthly sensual with fresh notes of spiced vanilla and neroli lingering to entice like a Venusian enchantress.

All best,
The Venusian Capricorn (aka Venus in Capi)

Honestly, whenever I think of capricorn I hear a sound, a deep ring that isn’t quite om- and then shortly thereafter a to do list 🙂 I feel like being a cap is sometimes like being a shaman- everything has a purpose, a message, a place where it can be it’s happiest! You just have to reach beyond your myth and into the part of you that is only light, and every answer is swirling around just waiting to be plucked. After a very intense 2008, I have decided to embrace myself and create a life that is truly a… Read more »

Capricorn wont play until the stats are laid out, so lets get this started right: 1. Ive got Venus in Capricorn conjunct Karma, Destinn, DC and South Node. As a woman, Venus makes up so much of who we are. The Sun represents our ego and actualized identity and is masculine. The Moon is our deepest emotions, but are not always indicative of who we are as a Woman as there are masculine-oriented moons. I believe the Moon is more indicative of our inner, deeper Soul, which transcends gender. But Venus is where, I believe, our concentrated, primal, female identity… Read more »

Capricorn Sun and Venus in the 4th house. Mercury in Capricorn in the 3rd house.

Here is my Tao of Capricorn-

Authentic perfection no need to explain. My cheek bones radiate my air of knowing what, how and when. I have agonized,internalized and worked relentlessly until I know the truth, then and only then will move on. Quit never but find a new Mountain yes. Perfume must be subtle with a scent of sophistication.

Having a Cap Asc, I have an instant affinity with the entire ‘legend’ written around this Essence of Capricorn scent above… sans actually experiencing the fragrance itself. Ever more beguiling for me however, is the ‘PRACTICALITY’ of it being ‘natural, botanical, non-chemical’… I am multiple chemically sensitive to the extreme after all, so only such a scent would rate with me. More importantly Mystic, what degree of Capricorn is your 12th house cusp? Having spent 14 years with Pluto transitting my 12th house, I’m REALLY interested to hear your experience of it, if it’s anywhere remotely close to being there… Read more »

My Sun & Chiron are in Capricorn & the description of this fragrance is so true of how I feel in the ‘ways of strategy’ & I do need to let go of routine. I’m curious about this aroma of earthiness as after a breakup last year I’ve lost my sensual side, or maybe buried it for the time being. Getting rid of limitations for this year, yes, and moving on.

May I share with you my story of my Capriconessa friend? She is of two very different cultures, a frigid cold mother from the North, the father from the raging heart of the Middle East. (Saturn in Cancer opposes her Sun) Her beautiful face is also the perfect poker face. (I often have wondered if she is Aspergers, but in the end, believe she is just a Capricorn). A judicious judge of character a ruthless business woman, she taught me much about generosity, leadership and strategy. She was a cocaine addict. She dumped it. She was a smoker, she quit.… Read more »

P.S. Re perfume:
A doctor came to her apartment to check on her leg post op. This useless imbecile had the cheek to ask us for some perfume to spray on her leg as he had no disinfectant with him.
We were aghast at his request.
He was aghast that she had no perfume in her house. 🙂

Neroli, rose, and grapefruit court the senses’ I adore vetiver and green chypres and my current fave essential oil for summer is neroli. It smells like orange blossoms on the French Riviera in the 1920s… My day to day perfumes are Prada Iris and Violet Verte from L’artisan Perfumiers.

Sun, Moon, Saturn, Jupiter in a crowded 4th House Cap. Grew up in a crowded house as the eldest of 8 children and yeah, mum and dad both Caps. Whatever the scent, for a Cap, it needs to Last. And it must be subtle. A perfect Cap fragrance will disguise the discomfort we have about winning, rather than achieving. Honours, awards, recognition only make us nervous. They are passing, transient moments that actually disorientate us. We get a bit confused by it all…well most Caps I know are a bit like that.

“this paper is poorly written”..See what sticks in one’s mind?

Whoa, tough for Saturn sq Mercury…but over it now…Mars in Gem saw to that.

It’s just because what was “expected” of me(Saturn) in school as it was not spontaneous and not my truth…

The Tao of Capricorn: This is an ordinary woman about to go into a meeting/event/occasion/gathering: she has paused at the entrance before joining the room to appraise the scene that awaits her. She’s assessing the scope of things to come, as though at the start of a marathon she’s trained for and knows what it will demand from her. A study of composure, she’s evaluating the objects, politics and players in the room to work out who is the soundest and most cogent, who is the most vulnerable and in need of support, who is the the worthiest adversary, who… Read more »

Interesting thought re: 12th house repression.

My 12th house is Virgo and I interpret it as my soul-work. Like I literally feel soothed by doing Virgo like functions, appointments booked, laundry folded and put away, clutter reorganized. That could also be my 6th house (Aries) moon talking too.

Two of my best friends, my mother, my godmother, and my Aries son’s ascendent/moon/mars are all Virgoan too.

I have my Sun at 18 degrees in Cap (reinforced with a sextile to Saturn) and my Mercury there too, at 1 degree. My Cap works me hard and I work it hard. A warm scent is most appropriate for a Capricorn. It is like a fire by which we warm ourselves in the dead of winter. Physiologically, Capricorns are bony/sinewy. They need something warming and steadying – something to pacify their striving energy and keep it grounded – to return them to themselves. And there needs to be something very ample about a Capricorn scent: it’s good feng shui… Read more »

Very interesting to see that No 19 is trending in the comments. My father just surprised me a very large bottle of Chanel no. 19 for my birthday. On reflection this was SO appropriate! Here’s something I just found about iris which perhaps correlates to the Cap ethos: “Talking about iris, the perfumer pointed out it is a very demanding ingredient. First of all, it’s hard to source, because anything can affect the final quality of the oil, including climate and soil. Secondly, processing of iris is very time and labor-consuming process, which lasts a couple of years.” Time and… Read more »

CirceBaby, you may enjoy Carnal Flower by Fredrick Malle. It’s my #1 favorite tuberose. First you smell the flowers, then you smell the stems and then the dirt emerges. Use your imagination and you might detect a hint of earthworm, before it all backs up into a bouquet of velvet and cream. Sexy, mature, timeless and expensive. Tuberose might note be the first flower one thinks of when matching scent to Capricorn, but this particular juice is as earthy as it is lunar. Utterly beguiling and likely to appeal to your Leo rising.

If If anyone is qualified to speak Capricorn, it’s me: Cap Sun and Ascendant in first house (within a degree of each other) and Lilith to make things interesting. To add to the burden, Mars, Saturn and Moon in Scorpio in the 10th H. Just a month ago, Saturn return on natal Saturn exact in Scorpio/10th H. Chanel 19 is one of my favorites, and its Iris is tamed by musk, so perhaps SIP’s Iris is tamed by the Frankincense. But I will say, you had me at Kate and Tyra.

Really want to smell the Cancer one (leather, patchouli, maté). Next time I am in LA I will stop by the Venice boutique.

You’ve aaaaaalmost sold me on the Cap one just because of the brilliant descriptive text. My Venus in Capricorn trine Taurus moon loves the idea of a “strategy scent”.

My boyfriend is a freak for frankincense and myrrh – he wears it every day and often selects incense with one or both. I am currently hooked on a fragrance that contains jasmine and white tea. I am curious what the frankincense and jasmine would smell like together.

I adore jasmine and iris! The same 2 notes in my long time favourite perfume – which – sadly is no longer available. First premiere bouquet by Van Cleef & Arpels Such an amazing scent, fresh, classy and subtle but with some spice from bergamot and vodka. It worked really well on my skin. Perfumes and scents are powerful memory evoking stimulus. One minute your in the dried pasta isle of Coles wondering why penne isn’t on special this week and then bingo – someone walks by wearing a fragrance that instantly takes you away to another time and place.… Read more »

Cap Moon in the 4th house…moon on moon relations. South node Capricorn….I have dad issues. Lilith in Cap…as MM says, “I’m a bitch in business.”

Some years ago, in property mgmt., worked with a Pisces Sun/Cap Moon..she was the mgr., 27 yrs old., I was 42. Someone who interviewed with her said “I don’t work for cold women”. Maybe because she had not gotten the job? Anyway, she is the one who said “I imagine you go home at night and unzip yourself and become someone else”. Of course I wondered “how did she know?” There were a series of dreams on my part. Most probably on her part too. She used to look at her broken out face in the mirror and say “I… Read more »

The first thing I did was head to the perfume counter and buy a bottle of Chanel No. 5. I understood that even if I got the clothes and hair wrong, if I smelled right I’d be fine.

Yes! No. 19 is not my fave for everyday or seduction, but it IS magnificent, I agree.
It is understated class and competence but decidely not haughty or heartless unless the wearer is such.
I keep a tiny bottle to wear expressly for job interviews or serious meetings/presentations, as it always makes me feel serene, confident, worth a million bucks.

In fact, we are divine. We are Arke and Iris – the twin Goddesses of the Rainbow.

For almost 3000 years, we have been scent makers. We made scents out of plants and beasts of the land and sea; and sold these to temples where humans worshiped our relatives. Over the centuries, the temples changed, and so did the gods – but not the demand for our rich and holy scents. Our clients are… well,… Read more »

I so wish you Rainbow Twins could redo “Joy” by Jean Patou, using your humanely – er sorry, DIVINELY extracted musk. They have befouled it with chemical pretend animal musk in the new formula, and the burn off – which was so delicious and funky in the original parfum, is now as vapid as stale candy floss.

Her work is her life and it makes her glow. The other quit her job just over 20… Read more »

I really enjoyed your post because as a Quad Cap I deeply relate. Must locate ‘path’, as in path to contentment/wellbeing, defined by you as, “having a mission, purpose and focus to work towards, create, build and dedicate oneself to every single day,” stay on path, when taken off path things get.. murky. It’s a constant, rigorous yet delicate balancing act. Every single day. Could articulate further but not in the mood- too many items on the To-Do List beckoning my attention. Another time! 🙂

So far mine too seems like the unrealisable dream, but I guess it’s where my life’s work is (I am a poet & artist, Leo rising). Men who ping off my Neptune are always muses or perfect yet impossible, never-quite-happening, this-could-be-my-soulmate kind of vibe. Le sigh.
