Minimalist, intense, clear. A perfume built around the natural CO2 extract of Boswellia serrata, aka incense; this fragrance conveys the rough, semi-desert where Boswellia trees thrives. Translucent, Incense Extreme is like the first whiff of incense smoke from Boswellia resin on red gleaming coal. Simultaneously, it is crisp like a night in the desert.
Coriander sends a sparkling shimmer of light out and over the darker, smokier aspects of Incense Extreme, like a shooting star running across the night sky. Petitgrain, in turn, is as bright and luminous as a star stays put. Orris wood mimics the subtly defined dim of this desert landscape; rolling dunes and rocks and far-off mountains are barely divisible, yet each echoes a slightly different shade of dusky blue.
The dry, vibrant woods that populate this scent illustrate the arid, fragrant cool of the silent night. A rich, dense ambergris hints at some buried moisture, deep below the sands; a long forgotten remnant of the sea.
Incense Extreme, is a terse yet eloquent elegy for the simple, restorative power of silent spaces; in this case the desert at night. A clean, brilliant burn you’ll happily self-inflict.
