I need a "If you come near me, I may slice you to pieces" scent. It'll be my RHB scent. I'm leaning toward Bluebeard, but I want other options. What is it in the Bluebeard I like? (subbes?) Is it the Vetiver or the Lavander? It smacks me.
I looked at Wrath and those like it and the scent stuff she puts in it don't seem to fit this particular mood so well. I don't *want* to smell like cinnamon when I'm about to kill people! *singsing*
I want metal, iron, sharp. (the ozone would be nice, except it always smells like lemon to me.) It's ok for it to mellow some, I *do* have to live with myself.
I'm also looking at Black Anise : "The blue faced hag of the British Hills. She lives in the Dane Hills, Leicestershire, in a cave called Black Annis' Bower Close, which she dug out of rock with her own iron-strong claws. Dozens of huge cats prowl the Bower with her, and it is guarded by a great pollarded oak in which she hides so that she may catch lambs and small children to eat. She carries her victims back to her cave, where she flays them alive before devouring them. She drapes their skins on her guardian oak to dry. Her skirt is fashioned from the skins of her prey, and her bed is a high-piled bed of their bones. Black Annis' perfume is a mixture of damp cave lichen and oak leaf with a hint of vetiver, civet and anise. "
