Eau de Parfum
I aimed to create an olfactive experience that conjures up the illusive and inebriated moments that create and perpetuate addictions. Intoxication is enticing as it allows the psyche a temporary escape from reality, in essence, an absent mind. It releases the endless anxieties and ruthless rumination that revolves around everyday life.
The fragrance begins its journey with a boozy and dissociative opening, signifying a liquid overindulgence, containing notes of absinthe, wormwood, anise and sweet fennel.
The transitive middle notes of orange blossom, patchouli, cashmere musk and woods attempt to induce the wearer into a comforting, disinhibitive state.
Sobering base notes of oakmoss, amber attempt to ease the consciousness back into the material world, however, this reality is short lived due to the compelling and impulsive nature that is addiction. – Ali
