Perfumer's Journey…

Perfumers’ Journey…

First, we want to ground to Gaia, our Mother Earth. The base notes of Vetiver Grass, the tree resin from Frankincense, the heartwood of Sandalwood, and the root of Iris are rich and grounding; all of these connecting us to the earth and manifesting the full-bodied notes from the spiritual into physical realm.

Creating the Centre of Being from the floral middle notes of Rose, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Osmanthus, Orange Blossom, and Neroli, we flesh out the aroma and give it heart. One by one, we drop them in to form the whole and find synergy as a group, creating something else, entirely..

Finally, those elusive head notes, which momentarily flicker before leading the way to spirit; teasing, frolicking, promising the Light touch of the Ethereal. Eventually, these are the ones that will make the first fleeting impression on the sniffer.

When the last drop is in, they react to one another forming alliances and taking the traveler to exotic destinations.

What do you want the wearer to feel? Where do you want them to go? … leading the willing deeper and deeper, note by note, into the depths of the scent. Journeying whiff by whiff to bygone and long forgotten times; except by the nose.
