This fresh, pure tonic washes us of our nightly sins. In Tom of Finland, clothing becomes secondary, an exterior ornament that merely cloaks the true, erotic power of the flesh.
Aldehydes and lemon express the sparkling promise of a new day--or of shower fresh skin. Birch leaves and pine speak to a detailed, genteel process of self-care, the anointing of our selves with enlivening essences. Safraleine and pepper instigate a new narrative. The electric heat of these spices resemble the brisk, vigorous motions we employ to awaken our bodies, and the shocking, pleasing prick when our consciousness is awakened by the first, new idea of the dawning day. Cypress is a refined yet wild note (accompanied by the green musk of galbanum and the spicy, luminous intensity of geranium), which inspires us to spring to our feet and embark on our desires.
Vanilla and tonka bean afford us an almost immediate preview of the sweet smell of success, a suggestion of relative ease and possibility of achieving our wildest ambitions if only we’ll start. Iris and vetiver speak to a growing sense of confidence, the dusty buttery floral interweaving with this spicy, earthen green to begin the fully embodied finely wrought animalism that comprises the final stages of Tom of Finland. Styrax is a nutty, rich interlude before the supple textures of suede and the savory, pleasing stink of musk and grey amber.
Tom of Finland inspires us to play, to love, to ravish, and be free of all inhibitions.
