Lime, Mandarin, Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Cedar, Vetiver, Moss - This scent opens with almost crystalline clarity of limes and pink pepper which endures through the emergence of smooth dry woods. Like standing in a grove of silver birch trees with moss underfoot.


Bright, clear and precise. There is a direct but restrained balance between the spiciness of the pink pepper and bergamot and the lurking heart of moss and woods. This scent does not announce itself blocks away, instead it works by stealth and intrigue drawing the nose toward itself.
