The wild seduction of a full moon night. A luxuriant bed of moss, crushed wet ferns, earthy calamus roots, piquant cedar tips, galbanum, balsam pine, lichen, disturbed autumnal leaves, and aromatic incense woods.
Moss Maidens were wild women of the Forest Folk who were known for seducing hunters and charcoal burners. If a Moss Maiden was pleased with the lovemaking, she would charm a hunter's weapons never to miss or keep a fire burning all night to allow a charcoal burner to sleep. Members of the Wild Hunt were favored prey of the beautiful Moss Maidens, who often took Huntsmen as their ghostly lovers. The wild seduction of a full moon night in a northern forest.
