Spicy Quincunx with Collector's Presentation


Part II of our sacred tobacco collection is a racy unisex perfume that balances the whimsy of a concept fragrance with the refinement of a Matriarch High Perfume creation.  Noble aromatics and extrait concentration offer a fragrance that wears for 24 hours on the skin.

Top Notes:  Hints of white ginger, ruh gulab (an attar style rose oil) Edward Rose and Rose Bourbania twinkle in the opening.  

Heart Notes:  Rose Apothecary Concrete Tincture, Rose Otto  (very special French process using petals only: a boutique Robertet product. ) White Rose India, Wild rose (alchemical rose with corolla) small batch distillation of red cedar heartwood wildcrafted in USA.  The unexpected X factor in this perfume emerges here: Green Heart Wood from Kenya.  Exceptionally rare, this oud-like note is hardly detectable to most noses, yet imparts it’s magic for an amplifying and softening effect that is dreamy, ancient and spacious.

Base Notes: Opoponax resinoid is sweet, and smells vintage, hinting at suede.  The accord is made possible with generous amounts of natural Oakmoss. Our house blend of Oud is apparent but never overpowering - oud has been a constant companion to rose throughout the history of perfume making.  Africa stone and Ambergris ground the perfume with a cruelty-free, yet animalic, musky patina.  Exotic spices are present during the entire drydown, providing interest without dominating.

The smoky eye in fragrance form.  Anointing yourself with ANTIMONY is akin to the ancient protective ritual of rimming your eyes with kohl. This talismanic incense perfume draws from the noble history of cosmetica and the aromatic materials which have been used throughout time to create "eye shadow" - the most magical cosmetic of all. 

Our sex magic perfume contains a blend of thirteen varieties of cedar, exotic sandalwood, and a touch of oud. Unquestionably vivid and sonorous, these woods sing with the ancient resonant voice of the aboriginal didgeridoo. These aromatics hearken back thousands of years and their smoky venerable tones play upon the collective unconscious of the wearer. They feel distinctly tantric in their power. Gandhi root and leather add drama, depth and offer great sillage.

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.
