SCENT NOTES: labdanum, vanilla, opopanax, copal, saffron, benzoin, cistus
DETAILS: In ancient times, goats were sent to wander through fields of rockrose to gather the precious sticky black resin of labdanum by catching it in their fur. The Egyptian god Osiris is often depicted wielding a scepter, but what has been interpreted as the scepter of Osiris was actually more likely a tool used to remove and collect labdanum resin directly from the goats who had gathered it. Even the beards worn by Egyptian pharaohs and gods which were known to be saturated with precious oils were meant to represent the beards of goats used to collect labdanum. It is from this understanding that we continue to honor the unending tradition of labdanum.
Exotic rays of radiant saffron swirl through the air. Ethereal wisps of opoponax blend with grounding African copal to create a sense of relaxing pleasantly between two worlds. Labdanum, the resin of rockrose, and cistus, extracted from the leaves of rockrose, combine to form the heart and soul of this resinous accord, enhanced and augmented by bourbon vanilla and tears of benzoin.
