Hmmm, something to layer with my Ancient Resins? Aftelier Frankincense Face & Body Balm: "This calming, anti-inflammatory healing balm is non-greasy and absorbs quickly. Made from two kinds of whole frankincense oleoresin (not the essential oil), boswellia neglecta and sacra -- extracted by me; both are rich with boswellic acids that are so supportive to health. These two varieties of frankincense are blended together to create a beautiful relaxing aroma. Includes organic beeswax and frankincense CO2 extract." $35 for a 15 ml tin at Aftelier, and also available in rose.
It’s not the cozy scent of a soul-warming hearth, Mr. Kurkdjian said, but a cold, marble fireplace after the flame has been extinguished. The soot and ash left behind is meant to help the audience “feel the sourness” of a conversation between a son and his father, whose sins this son disclosed to the entire family.
