Lavender, Wormwood, Petigrain, Artemisia, Geranium, Pine Needles, Vetiver, Patchouli, Leather, Castoreum, Styrax - A solid, muscular scent which stays close to the wearer and evokes shadows of worn leather, almost animalic  dustiness and wooded spaces. Like the cloakroom of an ancient hunting lodge lit by a hearth fire.


The presence of resinous pine needles and lavender is wrapped in the heavy animal scent of old burnished leather and the darkness of vetiver root. This is a rich and robust perfume yet there are subtle glowing details which emerge over time giving it a real quality and character.
