Marigold (Tagetes erecta)
Salt Water, Saffron, Rose Petals, Carnation, Tagetes, Cedar, Sandalwood, Musk
At the heart of this composition is an accord of sacred South Asian flowers that commemorate life, love and death — marigold, rose and carnation — notes abloom a base of sandalwood, saltwater, coastal pine and musk, recalling the river mouths releasing in the Bay of Bengal. Saffron threads, as iconic as marigold blooms, offer a wisp of Kashmiri spice to this watery, woody, floral summer monsoon perfume.
"Bound by a love of psychedelic color palettes, sensuous botanicals and inspirations drawn from their respective motherlands, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, this is the first collaboration between Tanaïs, a novelist and author of the forthcoming essay collection IN SENSORIUM. and the visual artist Shyama Golden."
