Product Description:

Based on the rituals of the proto death cult of the 1200's, Mississippi Medicine is eerily attractive. Like the creaky charms of a 200 year old house, Mississippi Medicine cures us of a desire for an original or 'new' fragrance: instead, this D.S. & Durga provides the deep satisfaction that comes from exploring old, mysteriously familiar structures.

Masculine with medium body, our first waft of Mississippi Medicine is of a smoky, dry fire. The rich, burnt sweetness of red cedar is seared by the scintillating fizz of aldehydes. Frankincense distillate is both solid and vaporous, a thick resinous cloud that surrounds bitter, tough cypress root, like a film of moss. Cascarilla bark provides a crumbling, chalk like texture that solidifies the more fugitive elements of this forest-derived fragrance. Yet even as this bark encapsulates the the specter of preceding notes, cascarilla’s entombing potency is exploded by the fruity-herbal cool of Spanish cade and the oozing, black pungency of birch tar. Incense issues from this final action, a quiet signal that this scented journey has reached its conclusion: all elements are released back into the atmosphere, the narrative of this ghostly scent disperse.

Mississippi Medicine is an invisible tonic for the soul, a ghostly fragrance that grounds us, while enhancing our sense of the ethereal.

Mysterious The mix of earthy herbal scents in this is absolutely amazing and definitely masculine Fresh out of the bottle this is probably the best smelling cologne Ix27ve ever owned It really does live up to the mysterious description on the bottle the whole ancient Mississippian death cult thing Although itx27s kind of hard to judge this myself it seems to me that it fades faster than most colognes so thatx27s the reason for the four star rating
