A Higher (Altitude) Power

Phi is a luxurious scent, inspired by a natural extract of roses produced in Afghanistan's rose region, Nangarhar. This rose oil is extremely rare and of highest quality. Inspired by these roses, growing in a dry and rough land, Phi is a rare gem, complementing contrasting lines, rich in natural raw materials that add depth and authenticity. A pungent, multidimensional scent of ruby-red intensity, Phi is a vibrant testament to the feminine power of rose. (Due to the limited amount of the rose oil, une rose de Kandahar is not guaranteed to be available all the time.) Phi starts with the rich ripe tang of apricot: all natural apricot extract surprises and enchants as it blends into/absorbs cinnamon and hints of bitter almond. Bergamot softens and undercuts the sweetness of the preceding notes, controlling a developing gourmand flourish. The woody heat of cinnamon bleeds into the sumptuous cool of voluptuous roses at the heart of this fragrance: extremely rare rose essential oil, with its unique scent of spices, plums and flower petals is paired with Bulgarian rose absolute, and then zapped by a hit of Bourbon geranium, which clangs like a loud, green bell, suddenly and succinctly in the middle of Phi. This blend of rose melts into skin, while it simultaneously embeds into a rich collage of tobacco leaves. The animalic, leathery and woody tobacco leaves ground Phi, before a final verdant jolt, a generous dose of patchouli. Here, woody and gourmand notes melt into hints of animalic lines. Vetiver, vanilla, and tonka engender a dense brilliance, a pliant base on which Phi begins to settle. A generous dose of musk and ambergris rounds and smooths the body of the fragrance and encircles roses, allowing these blooms to glow, perpetually, from the heart of Phi. A vibrant, powerful, rose fragrance, Phi is a dynamic fragrance, full of contrasting textures (powdery, terse, and dense) and a variety of synesthetic variety (ruby-red florals, a tawny, nutty gourmandism, a soil-like crumb of brown). Phi enables: don't be surprised if you find yourself running to center stage, seizing this rare power of this elusive rose. (apricot, cinnamon, bitter almond, bergamot, rose essential oil, Bulgarian rose absolute, Bourbon geranium, tobacco, patchouli, vetiver, vanilla, tonka, musk, ambergris)
