A mysterious sweet and earthy aroma. Resin, Amber, Patchouli, Rose, Sandalwood and a hint of citrus brings out subtle spice undertones. A classic scent that will take you back to the first time you smelt it. 
A great degree of confusion exists in regard to the source and identity of dragon's blood. The resin of Dracaena species, "true" dragon's blood, and the very poisonous mineral cinnabar (mercury sulfide) were often confused by the ancient Romans. In Ancient China, no distinction was made among the types of dragon's blood from the different species. Both Dracaena and Calamus resins are still often marketed today as Dragon's Blood, with little or no distinction being made between the plant sources. The resin obtained from Calamus has become the most commonly sold type in modern times, often in the form of large balls of resin. Resins that come from different species and different continents have been given the name “dragon's blood”.
Some medieval encyclopedias claimed its source as literal blood of elephants and dragons who have perished in combat.
Blended to smell exactly like the old Sanctuary store off Whyte Ave in Edmonton.
