Embers & Musk  EDP 6ml

An elegant dropper-bottle of eau-de-parfum strength fragrance for use with our Perfume Pomander balls, or you can simply wear the perfume on your skin.

Scent Family: Musk
Embers and Musk is a smoldering fire of a perfume. I couldn't resist the sweet smoky wildness of pine tar, and wanted to marry it to the clean musk of ambrettolide. I love the transparent etherealness of botanical musk derived from ambrette seeds recalling the scent of clean skin. The musk darts in and out of the smoky airiness of pine tar woven together with guaiacol -- the component of whiskey -- which lends a delicacy to the perfume's smoky facets. Pink pepper absolute, an essence that is no longer available, adds a bit of spice and berry. The narcotic red champaca absolute, which I buy from the grower, is one of the most extraordinarily gorgeous floral essences, boasting an equal measure of sweet spice and heady floral. I included just a smidge of red champaca -- to add a voluptuousness -- but not enough to register as floral. The dry, light freshness of Japanese yuzu paired with apple lends a sheer elegant brightness to the opening of the perfume.

The format is really a smile-enhancer - after just a few drops have been placed on the felt, within 10 minutes or less, you'll notice the space around you filling with a gentle, persistent perfume. It's the kind of soft, friendly talisman you can bring with you anywhere (in the pocket of a coat, in a bag or knapsack,) or left in a bedroom drawer, or tied to a hanger in a closet. It emits a soft but steady stream of fragrance. What I particularly love about scented objects like this is their longevity - felt emits the smell very gradually so it makes for a particularly sweet and pleasant experience. Having so many of Aftel's fragrances to choose from for the pomander also makes it wonderfully personalized.
