CHLOE'S GROVE™ Perfume Oil:
Inspired by The Myrtles Plantation
Just north of Baton Rouge, the memorable and evocative Myrtles Plantation in Saint Francisville, Louisiana is said to be one of the most haunted locations in the United States. Built in 1796, the grounds feature lovely gardens, a sweeping veranda, and trees dripping with Spanish moss, as well as architectural and artistic features within the home that point to a past that mixed death, faith, suffering and superstition. Many slaves suffered and died in and around the grounds of the Myrtles, while deaths from shootings and disease took the lives of the home's residents. Rumored to be built on top of a Native American burial ground, the Myrtles is said to be home to at least 12 entities, according to ghost hunters. One such entity carries the name of 'Chloe,' a slave girl whose sad history and story involved desperation and betrayal, which lead to her death on the plantation grounds. Today, hauntings on the grounds range from ghostly images in photographs, footsteps on stairs, objects that vanish or move on their own, and a mirror which becomes continuously stained with mysterious handprints, even after the glass is changed out...
Main Scent notes are: Magnolia Blossoms, Lily of the Valley, Olive Leaves, Spanish Moss, fifteen year aged Dark Patchouli, and a little touch of the Spirit Accord.
The Haunted Inns Perfume Series™ has been my fascinating joint venture with "Granny Becky," a young step grandmother and great-grandmother, who loves to travel with her husband. She has a penchant for the historical, unusual and rustic and has gravitated towards "haunted inns" for their beauty, history and location. However, she cannot confirm, or deny, that these locations are haunted but they are indeed fascinating. We worked together on these ideas for almost a year, discussing perfume notes, names, and the aura and events surrounding each Inn. I have sincerely enjoyed creating perfumes embodying the historical and unique nature of each location, Haunted or not. Each scent has a tiny bit of an accord dubbed the “spirit accord” that I created to tie all the perfumes together. ---Cat Marx
