Product Description:

A journey into the deep ambery core of the forest, expressing the essences of wood and amber with a darker shade. The scent of Nature.

Incense initiates Black Amber, a grey-ish, cool breeze that blows over and sweeps up thornbush, red seaweed, davana and Spanish labdanum to make one floral, briny, lush and smoky whorl of scent. As this complex air dissipates, Javanese vetiver emerges; a spicy, earthy, unctuous green it invigorates us and urges a deeper peer into the depths of this ever-shifting, mysterious scent.

Tobacco flowers captivate us with their woodsy sweetness, while a resurgence of incense simultaneously conceals and reveals the arid, sap infused burn of cedarwood. Cypriol is a brilliant burst of bittersweet, a mineralic heat that is pleasantly singeing. Patchouli is a rich portrait of green, an expansive semi-solid incarnation of itself that shimmers as it diffuses its hard-edged, fruity burn.

Black amber is reminiscent of the past, a fossilized, buried treasure, as precious as a truffle, unearthed from deep within the earth. Its chipped, spiky cleavage perfectly conveys its complex, prickly, capricious nature as a note, and just as we think we’ve begun to truly experience its smell, black amber recedes back into the cacophonous fog of this self same fragrance. Madagascan vanilla tempers some of the acrid tendencies of notes herein, while styrax and Indian sandalwood engineer an uplifting, illuminating finish that keeps this dim, mysterious scent aloft and free from any dour dry down possibilities.

As green as a freshly cut sapling and as intractable as sap, Black Amber is an enigmatic treatise on the infinite, unconventional, irrefutable beauty of the natural world.
