From her website: "An essential oil blend of precious Indian woods with a touch of Cashmere musk. Notes: Indian Sandalwood, Himalayan Cedar, Agarwood Silver Pine, Gaiac wood, Cypress, Cashmere Musk Mandarin tangelo. "
I'm still seeking the ultimate woods perfume. This is woods. Woods on nothing not-worthy as a base though..no chypre structure or oriental structure.... I feel I am a pile of fresh kindling here on a camping trip in August. A camping trip in the FOREST. I wait and wait for something to happen. Nothing develops. I just find these mid weight scents with no complexity or counter point a bit difficult to have a conversation with. I find it dull.
Wood, wood, and more wood. I can’t see the forest for the trees. At first the non-sandalwoods – the cedar and agarwood – come into play, not strongly, but with a quiet resolve that controls the opening. Eventually the sandalwood claims it own territory, and joins in the wood orgy with the rest of the varieties – pine and cypress. The sandalwood sort of forms the basis of the entire scent, it permeates its creamy essence into the far corners of the fragrance. The only notes available to ameliorate the woodiness of the accord are the musk and mandarin, both of which struggle to retain a tenacious hold on the background. The cumulative result of all this wood is a wonderfully contemplative fragrance. In addition to its ability to inspire, it is one of the most enjoyable wood fragrances I’ve experienced in a long time. It certainly has a place in my collection.
