Jack the Ripper Perfume Oil Collection
A set of five unique natural oil blends, each representing one of the five Ripper victims, each one inspired by the women themselves. The oils all share a base of patchouli and oakmoss, to evoke the foggy thoroughfares of Old London, and to each is added scented oils which evoke the lives of these five women, who like thousands before them could have faded into history, but are now remembered because of their brutal murders. The scent of these oils and the inspiration behind them is a reminder that these women led full lives, had wants, needs, hopes and dreams, and were not just dispensable prostitutes.
POLLY NICHOLS : Perhaps the first victim, her scent is inspired by London smog and sweet feminine flowers. Her oil is a blend of Patchouli, Oakmoss and Geranium.
ANNIE CHAPMAN : Annie, like many Victorian ladies, sold flowers, she also liked a drink, her favourite was rum. Her oil is a blend of Patchouli, Oakmoss, Rose and Sweet Rum.
ELIZABETH STRIDE : It is thought that perhaps Liz bought grapes moments before her death. She was found with a red rose in her blouse. Her oil is a blend of Patchouli, Oakmoss, Rose and Black Grape.
CATHERINE EDDOWES : On the night of her murder, Catherine wore a skirt printed with asters(chamomile) and lilies. Her oil is a blend of Patchouli, Oakmoss, Chamomile and Lily.
MARY JANE KELLY : Mary, who may have been born in Ireland, was heard singing on the night of her death ‘A violet from mothers grave’. Her oil is a blend of Patchouli, Oakmoss, Deep Violet Musk and Irish Cream.
Like the women, each oil is connected, but also unique. The oils have been blended with sweet almond oil, and will arrive in 10ml amber glass roll on bottles inside a hand made cotton pouch.
