•Top Notes: Rosemary, Bergamot, Lemon •Middle Notes: Lavender, Clary Sage, Rose, Rosewood, Cedar •Base Notes: Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Moss, Musk
Lavender and vanilla, tout court? Not quite; that seeming simplicity is deceptive. There is an ample cast of supporting characters here, all pulling their weight to make those two notes shine. Behind the lavender, there is bergamot for definition, rosemary to reinforce the green and herbal side of it, and lemon to brighten it; also rose and rosewood for a floral and spicy lift, and clary sage for a slightly green muscatel vibe. For the vanilla, an oriental trio of powdery musk, hay-like tonka bean, and a touch of bitter oakmoss. A bright head, a rich heart, and a lush base: a masterpiece of balance and support for a transparent simplicity as light (but as precarious to achieve) as a perfect meringue.
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.

Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
