Christi's latest Liquid Music track embodies the broody and melancholic overtones of that epic urban hymn with an unexpected, bitter opening of henna, dong-quai and spikenard. As the lyrics scream "I can change" so does the fragrance, from bitter to sweet, breaking out of the mold of today's cloying mainstream chocolate themed fragrances.
A chorus of blended teas, bittersweet Dutch process cocoa and alluring spices invite the sharp tones to linger, and they lend a very special magic to the bitter chocolate accord. Bourbonesque charred woods, hints of warm amber and a touch of oud create a velvety, harmonic drydown that takes a full five hours to develop on the skin and lasts overnight.
Created as a bespoke gift for one who cherishes this song, it develops in such an extraordinary way, we decided to offer it as part of our ongoing Liquid Music collection.
