Full Scent Description
Welcome to the Maine Moon Drive In. For the month of October, Maine Moon will be hosting Midnight Marquee, late night double-features on Fridays and Saturdays. Lot access begins at 11:30. Join us this Friday as we debut “Parlor Trick”, which explores a mystery that has captivated the area for decades.
Midnight Marquee is a dark and mysterious fragrance featuring notes of black musk, gasoline, supple leather, rich Earth, raw tobacco and a touch of moss, crunchy leaves, Foxcroft air and a tiny touch of vanilla musk. If you enjoy our darker, full-bodied fragrances like Devil’s Tongue or Full Dark, don’t miss Midnight Marquee.
Opens with a touch of autumnal Foxcroft air, leaves, gasoline and raw tobacco leaf. The gasoline is definitely detectable and is obvious upon initial application. After a few minutes, it does settle down and blend with the black musk, leather and more. An elegant supple leather and black musk quickly follow the initial opening.. Wafts of Earth and fine aged patchouli are softened by the lightest vanilla musk and a pinch of moss. Rich, moody, atmospheric, dark and smooth. Midnight Marquee seeks to combine the atmosphere of a mysterious film and the late night October drive-in experience. This is a very different scent from our other drive-in perfume called Maine Moon. Maine Moon is another atmospheric which features concessions of root beer, popcorn, caramel and chocolate combined with a strong fall air, dirt, leaves and leather car seats. Midnight Marquee captures a different perspective and atmosphere of this concept.
Ingredients: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Fragrance (may include essential oils).
Size: Approx 5ml packaged in a glass vial with protective box.
Other: Our Perfume oils are all Vegan with the exception of Inquisitor, which contains beeswax absolute.
Application tip: If your roller ball runs dry during application, remove black cap, hold your bottle vertically with roller ball pointing to the ground and forcefully shake/thrust the bottle down one time to replenish the oil in the well. Now it is ready to reapply to your skin.
Storage and Shelf Life
Most of our perfume oils are good for several years. We use rice bran oil as a carrier oil. Due to rice bran’s high anti-oxidant content, it has a very good shelf life.
Storing your oils appropriately will affect the shelf life. Be careful to store your Solstice Scents products, especially perfumes, out of direct sunlight and in a cool place as heat and light can age the products.
Safety Precautions for Pregnant or Nursing Mothers
Solstice Scent’s opinion is to avoid all fragranced and/or essential oil products while pregnant or nursing, especially in the first trimester. You may do your own research on the safety of using perfumes and fragrances while pregnant or nursing. Essential oils, fragrances and absolutes may pass into the bloodstream and may even cross the placental barrier. Not all oils are of concern, but Mothers should be cautious, especially in the first tri-mester. Some essential oils stimulate menstruation, are abortifacient, lower blood pressure and produce a myriad of other effects internally and externally and it is advised you exercise caution and be informed. Products which contain oils that we are aware should not be used while pregnant or nursing contain a warning at the top of the listing, above the description, though we still feel that unscented products are better for pregnant or nursing mothers. You may also wish to spray your perfumes conservatively on clothing instead of wearing them directly on the skin or try a few sprays of Glace combed through your dry hair or a little of the perfume oil rubbed in your hair.
About Solstice Scents
Solstice Scents started serving the local Gainesville, FL area in 2004. We originally sold soap, lotion, salts, candles, body oil, loose hand blended incense powders, dream pillows, eye pillows and neck pillows. We took our orders on order forms printed on parchment paper, hand wrote all of our tags and attached them with satin ribbon and
affixed our familiar mastic tree labels to bottles with rubber cement. Customers were able to select ala carte fresh made items directly off the order form, including customizing candle color or fabric choices. Bath salts were offered in upcycled Monin syrup bottles from the coffee shop Angela used to work at, topped with corks ordered from a wine supplier.
The business has evolved significantly since that time, though the same spirit, inspiration and aesthetic is infused into each item. While we no longer offer custom made items, all products are made with the same attention to detail and in small batches to ensure freshness. Our labels are designed in house with the original mastic tree
logo. The labels are applied by hand to the products. Each fragrance is still handwritten on the product label to this day.
