HAUNTED BAYOU ™ Perfume Oil:
Inspired by the Jefferson Hotel
Resting near the Big Cypress Bayou, and not far from the eerie Caddo Lake, is the memorable and haunted Jefferson Hotel. Its namesake, the east Texas town of Jefferson, is considered to be the most haunted town in the state, if not the entire country. Originally built in 1851 and used as a cotton warehouse, the Jefferson Hotel grew as the town was developing as a major port city in the years leading up to the Civil War. The economy of Jefferson collapsed when plans to clear a log jam backfired, and the tragic ensuring loss and despair may account for this town's mysterious and ghostly heritage. In the 1920s, the building became a hotel known as the Crystal Palace, and many a couple danced the night away to the sounds of jazz and ragtime.
Today, the hotel staff welcomes guests with a genteel manner. While the lovely décor and antique furnishings welcome those who stay at the hotel, it is the supernatural which leaves guests with memories, and incentives to stay. Many who have visited have reported noises (including music), sightings of full body apparitions, loud banging, voices and orbs in photographs. The beautiful staircase seems to be a hot-spot of paranormal activity as well, although each room in the hotel has its own specific stories of the supernatural. It's unlikely any one who stays there will not come away with an unusual story of their visit.
Main scent notes are: Cypress, Oakwood, Jasmine, Creamy Vanilla Pods, Clove, Dried Fruits, 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
