Very complex on the nose. Fine dry woods, soft leather & aldehydic florals. "Good things take time..."
This fragrance was bobbing along quite nicely but was missing ‘something’ - & quite a lot of it at that!
We knew it could be really special but couldn’t put our finger on how to do it - until one day we had our noses over a Galbanum sample. That moment when you know you’ve found the missing link is nothing short of joyous. So off we scampered to our unfinished samples - in went the Galbanum - & Ta-Dah. It was done.
Galbanum adds both a muskiness but also an intense green. It is mentioned in the Book of Exodus 30:34 where it was used an an incense; Hippocrates worked with it as a medicine. - & the ancient Egyptians called it the ‘Mother Resin’!
We think we’re in good company!
All Hail Galbanum...
