Country Air, Morning Dew, Verdant Fields, Trackside Buddleia Accord, Aged Honey, Steel, Red Brick Moss, City Smoke, Traffic
An olfactive journey, traveling from a countryscape to a cityscape; from fresh air and dewy, verdant fields, through to steel, granite chips and powdery aged honey, with red brick moss and city smoke. The Trackside Buddleia accord is the heartbeat of this fragrance - connecting these two atmospheres with a steady and consistent rhythm.
"Trackside Buddleia is a positive memory of traveling between countryscape to cityscape and existing between those atmospheres. Between familiar and unknown territories. There are some running parallels throughout - an open dewy grace, and green textures but also a brutalist, harder shape, that is the city, with a metallic, granite minerality. At heart there is also an enticing friction between honey and smoke. The rhythm of the scent is a consistent, solid beat, like a driving force, like the pace of a train. The Buddleia plant is a mundane, domestic, commonplace plant, that grows wildly along tracksides throughout the UK - an ‘invasive plant’ that connects these spaces. The fragrance seeks to re-examine a plant that is taken for granted, to highlight what surrounds us with double-perspective and to turn away from past notions of the ‘exotic’."
