This Virtual Scent-Trip is an Incense & Tea Ceremony that is inspired by Jules Verne's novel and the ongoing travel restrictions: an evening around the world through scent and aroma. We'll follow Phileas Fogg's route with his French butler Passepartout - enjoying French lavender, sipping English tea, exploring Calabrian Etrog, and exotic incense and perfumes such as Egyptian Kyphi, Ethiopean myrrh, Indian Attars and Nag Champa incense, Sandalwood incense from the Buddhist shrines of Hong Kong, rare aromas from the Japanese ceremonial bath and incense games, and we'll complete our round trip with North America's botanical treasures - Western Redcedar, White Sage, Tobacco and Sweetgrass, before returning to London for more tea and hot scones with jam.
Can be scheduled in person at a date and time that is convenient for you and up to 8 other discerning souls; or online via Zoom for up to 20 people, with an accompanying kit of all the incenses, teas and perfumes to experience that you will receive in the mail in advance when joining remotely, and a winning recipe for scones (the kit is included in the pricing).
P.s. This unique scent-trip is in loving memory of Ruth Moriel, who has circumvented the world more than once in her first 88 years of life. She lived on for another nine years traveling to shorter distances, not any less enjoyable and adventurous. She has survived WWII, escaped the Holocaust and countless wars and battles in her life, until she crossed over to the other realm peacefully in her sleep during the first COVID-19 lock-down in April 2020. Ruth will be forever remembered, loved and missed by her daughters, grandchildren and great-grand-children, and many other family members and friends for whom she has always been a source of inspiration and support.

Botanical incense pastilles designed for each one of the seven ancient planets.
This series of these resin-based, monastery-style incense pastilles is the result of close to 20 years of researching the botanical symbolism and alchemical traditions of each planet, and creating the best depiction of these planetary energies.
(Japanese Pastilles - for heating only)
Ironically, the harshness of reality hits when reaching the planet that is furthest away from earth. Saturn is often perceived as our challenges, burdened with rigidity and stiffness. On the other hand, it is through this strict form that our innermost intentions will manifest.
Saturn's incense is deep with dark myrrh resin, cedar, cypress, patchouli, cassia, vetiver, agarwood and a touch of honey to balance its heaviness.
Burn on Saturdays, or when you require grounding, material wealth, support as well as discipline to achieve your goals.
Please note: This is Japanese-style Nerikoh, which are honey-based and are meant for warming on a mica plate, aromatherapy lamp or a designated electric incense heater; they are NOT resin- pastilles for burning on charcoal.
