designer fragrances

I used to design cosmetics for fun. I have sketchbooks full of different products, but I haven’t done them in a long time. Work took over, stresses settled in. Tonight I got inspired, so I made this thing.
A lot went into it. The idea is that the bottles would be different colors, scents, and the dangling charm would differ depending on the class. The scents were picked based on their aromatherapy/essential oil properties, and how that might help someone of that class when they needed it most. Went by the first listed scent, then picked two more that would enhance it.

in·i·ti·a·tive

Fighter: Lemon - Concentration, clarity, relieves muscle fatigue
Rogue: Vetiver - Centering, grounding, calms over-sensitive nerves
Barbarian: Cedar - Strength, endurance, calming rage
Bard: Coconut - Energizing, mental clarity, confidence
Paladin: Sandalwood - Courage, energy, and drive
Ranger: Sage - Clarity, grounding, resisting fear
Druid: Holy Basil - Clear thinking, compassion, one with nature
Cleric: Lemongrass - Clarity, calm, reviving, stimulating
Warlock: Rose - Security, intimacy, eases discontent minds
Monk: Frankincense - Meditation, prayer, easing agitation and anxiety
Wizard: Rosemary -  Memory, mental clarity, reviving
Sorcerer: Lavender - Composure, relieves tension, promotes calm
Artificer: Jasmine - Creativity, harmony, joy
Mystic: Chamomile - Soothing, calm, and acceptance

(This isn’t a real product, just an art project for fun.)

Hey guys! This took me so long to write and I hope you enjoy it! Wanted to make it as relatable and realistic as I could, so I would love to know what you think! This is also super long, you’ve been warned!

Oh and… smut ahead ;)



Toronto, 23:12 p.m.

It’s late and Jo is so tired she feels like passing out at the kitchen table. She stares at her textbook but the paragraphs seem to blur in front of her eyes and she frowns, trying to decipher her notes on public international law. Her eyelids are heavy and she stifles a yawn, rubbing her eyes.

Shawn is sitting across from her, a focused look on his face while listening to demos, one headphone in, nibbling on his bottom lip, looking at the screen of his MacBook.

Jo normally loves evenings like this. Her and Shawn working until the morning hours, engulfed in their passions.

She loved how they would bring out the best out of each other, supporting each other, staying up so late to get that song done or finish that paper for uni.

the lack of these two in the au is disturbing

  • his favorite times of the year are fashion weeks bc he gets to go to a lot of them and interact with likeminded people and get inspiration and exchange business cards with new companies
  • he’s notorious for his seoul fashion week outfits because he does the same color schemes every year but the outfits are always so,,,,,,,different,,,,,,,,from last years??? like how did he do that???? (a: jun is a genius)
  • there’s also tons of pics of him with other models/fashion ppl because he’s friends with everyone and likes to treat everyone to food or drinks

  • also likes to drag the8 around with him to premieres as his plus-one or to shoots as his hype-man
  • when jun’s backstage at shoots or runway shows, he’s usually perched in some place not meant for sitting in, (i.e., the floor, between clothing racks, the makeup counter, etc.) reading a book nonchalantly and eating one of the chinese snacks his mom sent him
  • and everyones like ??????wheres jun??????
  • usually if the8′s with jun they beg him to like,,,corrall jun,,,,,,,somewhere near the makeup artists and hairdressers,,,,,pls,,,
  • but today everyone on set is not so lucky 
  • bc when jun walks in, babysitter!the8 is not by jun’s side
  • u let out a small sigh bc
  • ur a makeup artist @ the company jun does ads for frequently
  • so you’ve worked with jun Quite a few times he knows u pretty well and plays with ur hair or looks thru ur makeup stash while he’s waiting
  • however ur usually the one that has to Track Jun Down™ when the8′s not there,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,luckily tho u know most of his lil hiding spots (he denies the phrase ‘hiding spot’ but lets b honest jun)
  • so everyone’s setting up and prepping the different shots and ur getting all the palettes and brushes and powders set out on ur half of the counter when ur like……………”hey kyulkyung,,,,ur hair stuff is all set up,,,,wanna go look for jun while i finish setting up” n she’s like “niCe trY nOpe……good luck.”
  • so ur Off
  • it doesn’t take u that long until u find jun sprawled out on two armchairs in the breakroom with a pepero in his mouth and the latest issue of céci in his hands
  • and ur like “jun cmon we gotta get ur makeup done” and he looks over his shoulder before being like “hEy it’s y/a looking as cute as ever” as he rolls onto the ground and ur like well,,,,,,,,he’s greasy. as usual.
  • u get jun in the seat and get to work and whenever u tell him to close his eyes he’s like “sorry i can’t help it ur s-” “jun i’m going to poke ur eye out next time if u don’t-” “oKAy continue”
  • jun and kyulkyung start chatting in chinese as usual and u don’t rly notice until kyulkyung starts looking over at you and jun keeps giving her looks and ur like ???????okay???????
  • u finish jun’s makeup and hand him the mirror and he’s like…..nice nice but can u like….make my eyes pop a bit more..
  • and ur hesitant like “jun if i do anything that the director won’t like he’ll like go off on me don’t u remember the time i gave u a light red lip tint because we were out of pink and he almost fired me”
  • juns like “i’ll take responsibility ok just dO it noob”
  • ur like ok fine u highlight the inner corners of his eyes and lightly line his under lash line but after that ur like ok thats it no more i like my job
  • jun thanks u before he moves over to kyulkyung’s seat to get his hair done and u go sit on the couch and go thru ur phone and kyulkyung is arguing with jun in chinese,,,,,,,,,,,,,nothing out of the ordinary tbh,,,until kyulkyung starts making kissy noises,,,,,and ur like ?????????????loser????????????
  • when jun’s finally ready the shoot start immediately and u and kyulkyung are cleaning up ur stations a little when kyulkyung’s like
  • “y/a wanna hear a secret~”
