The Sacred Scent of ...


Res Ipsa Loquitur sent this over to me.

ORANGE, CA (April 3, 2007) – The world’s first spiritual perfume – Virtue® – was Premiered this week by IBI, a niche fragrance company in Orange, CA. Based upon an inspired Biblical formula, the perfume is designed to be a reminder of God, Christ, spiritual self and soul.

Smelling like Christ makes Jim Bob Duggar want to join the Mile-High Club.

Virtue®’s subtle blend includes top notes of apricot (the real “forbidden fruit”), pomegranate and fig that transition to a gentle heart of iris, warming to a golden base of rich, exotic woods of frankincense, myrrh, aloe, and spikenard.

Well, for some of us Apricot really is a forbidden fruit as I'm allergic. Apparently I'm possessed by the Devil. Which, if I was wearing Virtue®, would give a new, and unwelcomed meaning to the phrase, "get thee behind me Satan".

“The Bible documents that fragrance was associated with Christ and many of the ancient saints, including last century’s Padre Pio, gave off a fragrance that was associated with virtue,” explains Larimore. “Almost every religion and spiritual system worldwide acknowledges that many individuals of high spiritual attainment give off a fragrance attributed to their virtue.”

For example, in the King James Version of the New Testament, virtue is recognized as both, a power and a presence. When the lady touched Christ’s robe it says, “And Jesus, immediately knew in himself that virtue had gone out of Him, turned Him about in the press and said, who touched my clothes?” (Mark 5:30) Christ understood virtue’s power and presence – and knew when some of it left him.

Bad Touch Jesus?
