You’ve made it here. How splendid! Can you pause for a second and think about the series of events that transpired to lead you here, today? At this very moment? It truly is kismet! I would like to welcome you aboard this demystifying journey that you are about to embark on. Brimming with nuggets of gold. And sheer enchantment!

Aura Quotidian is an avant-garde lifestyle blog. Here you’ll find interesting and helpful research-based pieces relating to scent, candles as an art form and a number of cool, esoteric topics.

There’s something of inspiration and merit for everyone –– whether you’re simply passing through or have recently begun experimenting with scent. Even if you just happen to like perfumes and candles a lot, and not sure how to choose the right ones, this is the place for you.

Maybe esoteric things move you. Why you wished upon the Super Blue Blood Moon to discover a space where discussions were a thing in the first place. (And now here you are!) Could also be that you’re an expert in these realms.

Whatever your story is, I implore you to stay as long as you would like, spread the magic and help share your feedback!

Sincerest thank yous for reading. And I bid you a tender adieu (for now).

ENJOY!

Or poking through a house, in closets shut for years,
Full of the scent of time – acrid, musky, dank,
One comes, perhaps, upon a flask of memories
In whose escaping scent a soul returns to life.

Nothing revives the past so completely as a smell that was once associated with it. ― Vladimir Nabokov

Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it.
― Patrick Süskind, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery. There is always more mystery. ― Anaïs Nin

Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.       ― Anaïs Nin

Why You Should Care About the Hot Honey Strawberry Rose Moon

First things first, what exactly is a “Hot” “Honey” “Strawberry” “Rose” Moon? One might naturally pause and wonder amidst all the hullabaloo surrounding it.

About

Greetings and salutations!

Aura Quotidian is an avant garde lifestyle blog and community open to all. I attribute it to my love of esoteric things, and never ending fascination with olfaction, better known as our sense of smell.

Olfaction is the most powerful of all of our senses. It’s also beyond mysterious… Not a day goes by that I don’t discover something utterly mind blowing about it!

Our everyday life is influenced by its enigmatic ways. Sometimes beyond reason. Our thought, mood and behavior can suddenly shift between inhales with the magical waft of a single scent in the breeze! This awareness instilled within me an unwavering sense of curiosity. And drew me to urban gardening, perfumery and candle-making at a young age.

A lifelong lover of rituals, and a self-proclaimed alchemist wannabe, Aura Quotidian is a candid outlet where I share my researched findings and opinions.
