AEDES DE VENUSTAS Grenadille d'Afrique
This product is currently sold out.
A tribute to ancient African Blackwood and its majestic home.
From crackling sap to balmy resin. Smoky wood to sun-seared stone. Purple dusk to ink-black night. GRENADILLE D’AFRIQUE expresses not only its namesake tree, but also the primal landscape in which it grows.
“It is a surprising, uncompromising and emotional scent”, perfumer Alberto Morillas explains. “The materials are simple, stark and unadorned. It is through this density and simplicity that the fragrance turns into art."
Alberto Morillas describes his creation as “fossilized wood rubbed in a vanilla accord,” a strongly contrasted composition that sets its dark heart off with luminous notes. GRENADILLE D’AFRIQUE explores a new region in the scent-map, where woods and resins meet ink and stone.
Notes: African blackwood accord, vetiver, cistus labdanum, juniper, vanilla, bergamot, lavender, violet.
