Biblical Scents

All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia.
- Psalm 45:8

Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about 75 pounds. Taking Jesus' body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen.
- John 19:39-40

Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
- John 12:3

I really dig the concept of candle scents inspired by Biblical passages. How cool to see them turn to the darker side of the Bible - Job's Torment, Fallen Angel, Hades, Legion, Lucifer...
