Lothlorien - Golden Wood

$22.00

Who has not dreamt of entering the Golden Wood , Lothlorien….

 

Lothlorien Incense is my attempt to capture the green and golden beauty of this mythic paradise. The scent is verdant and earthy but with unusual arboreal aromas and unique herbal notes.

 

Lothlórien was the vast woodland realm of the Galadhrim elves located near the lower Misty Mountains in northern Middle-earth. Scholars have noted that Lothlórien represents variously an Earthly Paradise; an Elfland where time is different, reflecting the traditions of European folklore; and a land of light striving biblically with the darkness of evil.

 

"That is the fairest of all the dwellings of my people. There are no trees like the trees of that land. For in the autumn, their leaves fall not, but turn to gold. Not till the spring and the new green opens do they fall, and then the boughs are laden with yellow flowers; and the floor of the wood is golden, and golden is the roof, and its pillars are of silver, for the bark of the trees is smooth and grey."

—Legolas

 

Mellyrn were similar to beech trees in that their bark was smooth and silver-grey, but their leaves, which were green above and silver beneath, were much larger and longer than those of beech trees and turned a clear gold in autumn. The golden leaves did not fall like those of other deciduous trees; they remained on the tree throughout the winter. They fell only in the spring, when golden flowers bloomed on the branches and new leaves sprouted, turning the entire forest a bright gold. Mallorn trees exuded a greater presence than other trees. Frodo Baggins explained that he could feel the "life of the tree" when he touched a mallorn in Lothlórien.
