So why not make them yourself?

Moon Priestess Perfume:

1 Drop Queen of the Night Oil
3 drops rose oil
1 drop lemon verbena oil
4 fl. oz (120cc) white spirit
Blend the three oils in a bottle. Add the white spirit, and shake vigorously. A cologne can be made by adding another 1 FL. oz (30cc)of white spirit and 3 fl. oz (90cc) of distilled water.

Moon Priest Cologne :

1 fl.oz (30cc) lemon verbena or Lime oil
2 fl.oz (60cc) coriander oil
1/2 fl.oz. (15cc) camphor or myrrh oil
1/4 fl.oz. (7cc) white spirit
3 3/4 fl.oz. (105cc) distilled water
Blend the oils in a bottle, add the spirit and water and shake vigorously. Increasing the myrrh oils gives a darker perfume; increasing the camphor, a lighter and more spicy one. All perfumes 'behave' differently on different skins, so it is worth experimenting to find your own balance.

Athene Oil and Incense:

The olive is sacred to Athene. Use pure olive oil as an anointing oil in particular, rub between the palms of your hands and anoint your feet, forehead and lips. For the Incense:

7 drops musk oil
Female sweat (as much as possible)
6 olives un-stuffed and preferably black

Blend the first four ingredients well, at the full moon, and add the olives. Put in a jar and leave for one month to mature. Then remove the olives (Which will have imparted their essence to the rest) and throw them away. Stuffed olives, both black and green, are an obvious food fora ritual of Athene, also stuffed vine leaves, a very Athenian dish.If possible, of course, the wine should be Greek - especially retsina, though that is an acquired taste.

Put a sachet into your bath five minutes before you get in, to give the aromatics time to work.
