Sigil Eau De Parfum
A sigil is a magical symbol created to represent inherent mystical forces, a set of ideals, or to serve as a physical focus through which to stimulate the imagination and achieve a specific state of mind. Sigils are shorthand for one’s whole essence, imbued with special energy and intensity. They are “the art of believing,” according to Austin Osman Spare.
In 2015, Patrick Kelly founded Sigil with a line of long-wearing, complex, and 100% natural fine fragrances. Sigil perfumes are inspired by ancient perfumery techniques, re-interpreted through a contemporary lens. The result is singular eau de parfums that unite the sensorial with the intangible.
SOLUTIO: Solutio is the alchemical practice of purification and dissolution—a process of coming apart that leaves behind only the true essence of what began. Distilling precious and resinous plant materials into their essential components, Solutio is a green and buoyant blend of aromatic cypriol, bracing lime, and a handmade tincture of wild chaparral that releases the mind from the trappings of the ego. Like a hot coal hitting cool water, Solutio’s effervescent spirit wraps the body and the mind in a cleansing vapor of scent.
Key notes: Cypriol, labdanum, chaparral tincture, cypress
PRIMA MATERIA: In ancient times, prima materia referred to the formless root of all matter—a blend of stars and soil from which all things emerge, and an essential component in the alchemy of turning base materials into gold. Uniting the earthly and the heavenly, Prima Materia is a scent rooted in soot yet elevated by sparkling notes of fresh citrus. The creamy sweetness of neroli and the cleansing power of white sage embody celestial matter, while oakmoss and woody vetiver signify the spirit of the soil. As it melts into the skin, the alchemy of the scent begins—revealing a golden, resinous heart of pure amber.
Key notes: Vetiver, oakmoss, neroli, white sage
AMOR FATI: A philosophy beloved by ancient cultures across the globe, amor fati represents the belief that all experiences from birth until death—all the moments of bliss, suffering, and striving—are essential to the cyclical beauty of our existence. Symbolizing both the ashes of death and the new growth of birth, Amor Fati combines smoky essences of oud and opoponax with the fresh and lively scents of bergamot and green pine needles. Resinous galbanum and palo santo ground the scent with hints of sacred incense—a reminder that the spirit remains, even as the cycle of life begins and ends.
Key notes: Oud, galbanum, palo santo, opoponax
ANIMA MUNDI: Anima mundi or “world soul” represents the intrinsic spirit that connects all living things on the planet—a spirit that exists beyond our consciousness yet is present within each of us. Embodying the vital force of our universe, Anima Mundi balances masculine animus and feminine anima. Like petals floating through curls of smoke, luscious notes of rose and creamy jasmine mingle with spicy hinoki wood. The scent’s intoxicating essence shifts from moment to moment, revealing fragrant notes of tuberose and the candied smokiness of pure immortelle.
Key notes: Immortelle, hinoki, rose, jasmine
DETAILS: 1 oz
