Late Winter, early spring is perfectly encapsulated in this Neroli focused fragrance. Twigs with buds unfurling into the crisp blue sky mixes with nearby conifers. Powdery hyacinth and delicate violet leaf are suspended by black pepper.
“I travel to the coniferous forests of the Mogod Mountain Range on a bright morning at the end of a short but brutal winter. I'm surrounded by evergreens glistening with dew in the sharp sunlight; the spongy bed of needles and leaves beneath my feet squeaks with resistance. The air is crisp-sweet and sour with vegetal rot and bright green shoots, unfurling through the fertile soil. A sea breeze reaches me-honeyed with the bitter orange blossoms and the promise of spring.”
