Win Strange Invisible Perfumes Taurus Frag By The Full Moon

Filed in Zodiac Fashion

Leonora Carrington

I got totally behind on my Strange Invisible Perfume reviews/competitions during the recent disrupt but here we are and you can win a beautiful bottle of their Taurus fragrance just by sharing what YOU think of as the Tao of Taurus.

As you may recall, i cover the SIP frags as they are (1) astrologically linked and (2) ethno-botanical, super-herbal and not a single paraben or synthetic essence in whiff. Literally. Which we approve of for the environment, for our immune systems anda all. But they’re composed by a Virgo Nose following old-school composition rules.

So the Taurus fragrance has main notes of geranium, oakmoss and vetiver…There is more (neroli and so on) but those are what my not-a-Virgo nose detects and i love it. If you like GREEN scents (i love them so much i nearly fainted with delight when i smelled a vintage Vent Vert) you will love this.

It smells like a Taurus should smell – of the Earth, grounded, sensual and totally together. It’s very grounding. It is a scent you could conceivably wear to yoga and it would be supportive, not obtrusive, augmenting your zen without being LOUD. If this was a woman, she would be the sort of chick whom at first glance looked like a normcore hippie but then you realized she was in fact extremely beautiful – so much so that no artifice or brashness was needed nor employed. The sort your partner fancied but it was irritating as she was so new age about it.

Strange Invisible Taurus also brings to mind the fantasy quick roll in the hay if it was impregnated (so to speak) with grapefruit.  Or like Lady Chatterley coming home from consulting with her gardener about the coriander crop.

I love it and maybe it’s because i have Jupiter in Taurus but this makes me feel more at one with nature – like i see the auras of trees and all.

The below images are what i think match this fragrance and YOU can have your own bottle of Taurus fed-exed to you on Monday by sharing (in the comments) what you think the Tao of Taurus is…ideally. We are talking haute Taurus here. Or if you want to share tales of those hardcore haute hippie stealth seducers in yoga pants, go there.

Anyone can comment but the actual competitions are only open to subscribers as it is YOUSE who keep all this going without advertisements/promoted content and for that you have my undying devotion.

Competition closes by the Full Moon in Aquarius and the winner will be announced, by me, in the comments.

Listen to vinyl–it is not only better sound quality–it is also more relatable as a physical object–we can easily understand how it is made as a disc with notches. Make your own food and drink, especially wine and beer. The physical process is tangibly rewarding as we love to work with our hands–and the reward is we get to eat/drink the result. Physical work is generally very rewarding. Woodworking, gardening, and did we mention baking? You can always trust us to know how to properly lift a heavy thing. We get ready at our own pace. Don’t even try to… Read more »

I have to say as a Taurus I find a lot of these posts leaning more towards Libra/Pisces mindsets than Taurus, lol. We’re a romantic herd but not very flowery with language – less is more, show us the actions is more our overall steez, lol. Regardless, was nice to see so many folks gunning to win some Taurean SCENTuality and celebrating what’s awesome about the magical cow vibe. Congrats to the winner – enjoy!!! 🙂 <3

Ooooh Madame Taurus sun here First pic is SO moi, I mean I have a crystal glass cbinet of 3 levels filled with my beauties. All recharged by the light of this silvery moon. And then, the bedroom ambience…not lush enough for me, add more texture and colour, too nunnish but still v Taurus. Ah, flowers and woods, the look into the microcosms in Nature to enchant and sustain…YES! But nothing like trees and mist and solitude and the smell of humous/decaying leaves which makes one search for edible mushrooms… Well done. But you left out the food..and the scented… Read more »

My 7 year old son is a Taurus. It’s quite fascinating to learn the natal charts of your children and see them grow into their own. Yesterday he bought his first video game with money from his piggy bank. He was confident and excited beyond belief, and he did everything himself but count the money. The sales guy thought he was so rad, quite unlike the children who are usually overly shy or excruciatingly entitled. He wants to be a ninja when he grows up. To him that means he gets to wear cool costumes, carry fancy swords, and fight… Read more »

Smoking a cigarette from a an engraved, gold box, post-yoga class. Saying, I can’t decide which dress: this or this? And choosing the one you didn’t pick. Eating candy for dinner, slowly, out of a bag, while reading a novel dense in words and plot. Having people throw themselves at your feet in undying devotion. Searching for The One while keeping a few Someones in the back pocket. The last one to arrive at the party, but who always leaves before things get messy. Is that drama calling? LA LA LA I can’t hear you…

i only know taurus when i go past crossroads with a heavy key ring on my belt and not much else on. it is where i go to school to train to see. lesson one, once my eyes adjusted to the darkness i could see water on moss at the balsamic moon. i’m usually barefoot and i know which berries are safe and which aren’t. my teacher doesn’t have to speak but i’m lucky when she does.

Pushing. Plowing.

So many descriptions of the happy taurus life I would love right now. Taurens have stressful times too, and if couse ride right through the middle proud and calm like Lady Godiva. Taurus is the rock, while others come and go, we’ll be here for another thousand years. We take on great responsibility and never bail on a commitment. We can spot a rip off at a mile away, we can pick the liars and the fakes with ease. We speak up; we have the difficult conversations. We know our value but our ego is backed up with hard work… Read more »

That bed. In that forest. With those flowers. I would sleep forever. And sleep some more. Eventually I would need food, delicious food, maybe a giant protein-filled salad, to be brought to me and tea as well. Endless giant mugs of tea. Yoga also — the best yoga is just luxurious cat stretches and slow dancy movements. And dream weed, of course. I would lie in that bed forever — I would be the lady from True Stories — and I would feel no guilt, ever. There would also be lovely soft-lipped, long-eyelashed, long pullable (and oh there would be… Read more »

Oh but a bath! There must be a large clawfoot tub surrounded by even more flowers close to the bed. Daily hour-long scented baths are a necessity. Poo, there goes the whole narrative!

I want this bed-fantasy especially strongly as I put my bed in storage two days ago and have been sleeping on my couch. Granted, it’s a proper (and so comfy) brown leather couch, but still. Not a bed. This half-taurean is all about the bed.

“…quick roll in the hay if it was impregnated (so to speak) with grapefruit. Or like Lady Chatterley coming home from consulting with her gardener about the coriander crop.” Oh my goodness this sounds spectacular. Luscious earth with a hint of is-that-legit? sleaze, topped with clear, austere herbaceous scent. I don’t really have a lot to offer for the Tao of Taurus , except to say that once I am in bed with or at the dinner table with one, we are having a total-body conversation where words are not required. Mind you, toros are also wonderfully articulate.. I think… Read more »

Mind you to a Taurus, sleaze is not in the vocab. The Body wants what the body wants. You do not question or second-guess the body. The Body is Always Right.

“Lush earthy notes of geranium, maté, oakmoss, vetiver, and frankincense encourage flexibility and optimism without compromising shrewdness. Neroli, rose, and grapefruit court the senses and lighten the mood, allowing Taurus to shine even more brightly.”

it sounds divine.. think that their scents are unisex? my man would *kill* this.

The Tao of Taurus:

The highest virtues are to be sensual, slow, accessible, uncomplicated and unpretentious. To live loving trees, gemstones, delicious homey food. Good-looking and presentable at all times. Knows intuitively how to finish things off, whether it be a work project or a lover’s orgasm, and prides themselves on this. To live as an aligned, grounded person and to be loyal to those who help them do this. Taurean loyalty is practical, nor sentimental. They are deeply trustworthy if you are someone who enriches their lives, especially in the way of bringing them beauty and softness.

Taurus rising/Scorpio sun… and I love, love, love beautiful perfumes, but I’m a floral/oriental girl all the way. The green scents don’t work for me. By Kilian Beyond Love, Amouage Lyric Woman, Frederick Malle’s Carnal Knowledge, Guerlain L’Heure Bleue, Aftelier Secret Garden, DSH Beach Roses – these are in heavy rotation for me right now. Of course they’re not cheap, so I rely on tiny sample vials!

Tao of Taurus? Quietly munching salad nicoise with glass of white wine in a city park during lunch break, admiring the breeze and the faint smell of blooming flowers as it comes and goes with the oscillating swirl of fanning leaves. Standing serenely; steadily with both feet firmly planted on the earth with a tilt to one side. Waiting in a busy subway station watching people whirring past talking on their phones and glaring into smartphones. This is how Taurus meditates. Eyes open with gaze on nothing in particular. No distractions but the distractions of what is around. Home laying… Read more »

Taurean Tao winks through the eyes of the Spirits of the Vine, Hearth and Bedrock. Green Goddess of body healing and earth dreaming. She arrives part way through your Ayahuasca journey, in the middle of the Amazon, Glittering stars bright in her green hair. When the light of the stars becomes one She shows you her black face. And kisses you with stern kindness. In that moment all of your weaknesses are exposed. Without hesitation she peels back your lives, your selves to their core and gives you the choice: to be a better person. The consequences are dire to… Read more »

Wjen you wear Taurus, you feel all things at once, soft, sensual, fresh but knowing this is based in the depths of Mother Earth. This fragrance will surprise you with its ability to appear light and fresh but due to the clever combination of vetiver and subtly of oak moss Taurus will last the passage of time. For those of you who live in the tropical climates (like me)this sounds just perfect – can’t wait to sample her green depths.

I have 7 planets in Taurus (9th house) including the sun. Virgo rising. Yesterday I went shopping in soho and discovered an amazing new store — Cos, maybe you know it, new to NYC– and tried on stuff for 2 hours. Great fabrics, lines, colors. Went home, made chicken curry, cleaned up my daughter’s toys, brushed the dog, exfoliating scrub, sesame oil applied, went to sleep on a horsehair mattress. Tao of Taurus. I’m not making this up.

The tao of Taurus ? I am remembering the very best of my first love…Some 4 decades ago. The feeling of being at home with another for the first time. And later, much later, when I had a long term boyfriend but he seduced me again, gentle love-making by the banks of the Hawkebury river. Feeling safe and protected by his loyalty and love. Our bodies seemingly made like lock and key. How he would hold my hand, and miraculously it would not get sweaty. Snuggling up to him on the lounge at his parents place, where the only photo… Read more »

It’s so lovely to read these comments, Mum does so many of these things. Big bank account (she’s a financial planner so very savvy with the moolah). Bird baths always full, gardens, clean sheets, love loyalty (she’s been married to my father since she was 19 – she’s now 54). She’s also sensitive to fragrance and can only wear certain types so goes to great lengths to find ones that she loves but don’t give her a reaction.
Makes me appreciate her idiosyncrasies. Thanks guys xox

My own lovely mother with earth in Taurus. Now returned to our universal earth mother. Not always gentle, but essentially kind and knowing. Welcoming, with a sense of the absurd and slightly eccentric. Garden dirt under the fingernails, fragrant coffee brewed in a beautiful pot, hearty bread, lashings of butter, wine and a warm hearth. Gemutlichkeit.

on another page she talks about that too, you can chow down on VC for 10 days between ovulation & menstruation, but don’t overdo, i.e. longer.

I should research this. I watch my ovulation closely and do not use contraception and it has worked but there is always the feeling that we are playing with fire.

My Mother is a Taurus, thus I will base the Tao on her. The ritual of smelling the sheets from having been dried in the sun, not to smell that it’s clean but to smell the sunshine – take note of the intangible beauty around you. Tend to your garden as often as you can, working with the nature of the plants and trees, allowing them to grow wild (in the Taurus’s organised fashion of course) – work with the nature of things to garner the desired results not against them. Do whatever it takes to have a clean kitchen.… Read more »

Haute Taurus understands we are spiritual beings incarnated to have a physical experience. She embraces material reality, revels in it, amasses it, uses it. She can happily toil away to create her Earthly Eden. Luxury is a form of communion, and it doesn’t have to be decadent excess – a hot chocolate moustache, fresh sheets on bare feet, the wash of cool beer against a hot tongue (or a hot tongue against a hot tongue). Taurus isn’t simple, but doesn’t overcomplicate. “Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty – that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”

The Tao of Taurus craves rivers and mountains. She knows the names of the birds and the trees are her friends. Speaking of friends, she keeps them forever. She makes a stable and safe home for her family, filled with music, books, food and laughter. She will usually be growing something, whether it is a sacred herb garden or a fragrant shrub in a pot. Creativity and following her heart’s desires are not luxuries. She did not come here to suffer and grind but to flourish and bloom. She is the practical mystic, knowing deeply that everything is sacred. Sun,… Read more »

Soft rain falling on freshly mowed grass;
Sweet strawberries in dark chocolate fondue;
The full moon shining above the salty seas;
Love-making on a sunny afternoon beneath crisp, linen sheets;
The tango danced with passion, grace and eyes entwined;
The crunch of twigs and gum leaves beneath steps through the bush;
Snowflakes settling on a baby’s eyelashes,
Naked yoga beneath coconut trees on a tropical island;
The voluptuous cleavage of Mother Earth is the Tao of Taurus

I have been absolutely SCHOOLED in the ways of Taurus this past year due to my guy……., but I’ve always had lots of Taurean peeps around me, they help me feel grounded and safe. (I’m Aqua Sun, Pisces Moon, Kataka rising……plus any Toro completes a grand trine for me as I have a Virgo Jupiter trine a Cap Venus) Anyway….. I’m not commenting to win, I have nothing clever to say, it would be a nice consolation prize for putting up with Toro guy, but really he is lovely, I think I just feel outdone by his stubbornness, because my… Read more »

Through a series of circumstance I found myself renting a room in a nice house with older professionals in a college town. The other girl moved out and another subleased for a spell and I was left in said very nice home with Three, 3, III, Taurus men at the same time. Me being a Pisces and single female I was inclined to treat them all like my brothers as I did deep investigation and collected intel. Maybe you think I should have systematically seduced them with magical Piscian wiles……which I did I suppose subconsciously using food, playing the piano… Read more »

A Haute Taurus maintains a stable, persistent Lunar ease through her daily practice of gratitude for Mother Nature’s bounty. Regular body work, strolls through nature, nutritional input, and monetary evaluation reinforce the textures, tastes, scents, sounds, visuals, and vibrational connections that ground the body, mind, and soul. Stoicism, beauty, endurance, and stability is the Tao of Taurus.

The path is strongly bound to the deepest need to provide the security in all earthly matters of the corporeal and visceral. To shelter, to feed, to protect and provide.
When you have this, the universe is yours to explore with all other senses, ethereal, spiritual and auric.
That makes Taurus the springboard to acknowledging dark matter, the all and everything.

I’m Taurus Sun Moon Mercury opposite Uranus. This is Taurus illuminations, feelings and thinkings 24/7 to combat untold forms of surprise shit and unexpected depth-turns of life. My Tao : I worship nature as mother and God. The embrace of the tree and the support of the grass are my home. Animals are messengers of sacred ancestors and spirit guides. My sense of smell is honed to a snobby state of self righteousness. Morning ritual is a deliciously drawn out offering of patchouli suds, rose oils and sandlewood smoke. I practice meditation surrounded by chunks of crystals collected by my… Read more »

Put quite simply, if the Tao of Scorpio is to see a beautiful flower and dig down to analyze it’s roots, learn about it in the deepest way possible. A low Scorpio would overturn the land around it and maybe even destroy the bloom itself…the Tao of Taurus is to see a beautiful flower, stop, let your eyes, nose and skin make love to the bloom. A low Taurus might try to take the bloom without its roots…therefore killing the poor flower.

My bedroom is dedicated to the Gods, I ask their help in all things dedicating to love, may they live through me and my passions will be their passions. My bed is chunky wood with black silk sheets, an ancient Chinese cupboard with amethyst geode, selenite lamp and salt lamp too. Two Indonesian kris, antique well worn blades. Gold mermaid carved wood mirror and another altar with Chinese carvings..this Taurean has dedicated herself to love, I have tasted a piece of heaven and it’s my drug, my addiction..

Haute Taurus:
That vintage coat find that flatters you like nobody else. Yeah, you checked what it was made of. We go for fibres first and foremost.

Makeup? Rarely.

actually I have some more words on the taorus:

discernment? as in a preference for quality and beauty, but not out of indulgence, rather, in honour.

In honour of ourselves, of each other and the earth. A choice in every thing you do that says, I value you, I value myself, and I value the source and the process. Let us do this (whatever it is) in a way that adds to the general stock of well-being.

The power of the Bull. Years ago I had a series of dreams about white Brahmin bulls and so powerful and at the fore of my waking mind. I even wrote them down. (I am nearing my mid century) When I was 8 years old, I lived for a short time with my Aunt in a mining town near the red desert of Australia, and I awoke one night in the middle of the night, looked out my window and saw in the moonlight outside the flats we were in, lying and grazing on the grass were many silvery white… Read more »
