Perfume Pomander 6 ml

Palimpsest  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: Fruity Floral
Palimpsest captures the feeling of being in the Garden of Eden at midnight: lush, wild florals, forbidden fruit, and majestic creatures in hiding. The perfume undulates down through florals to its ambergris-laced, other-worldly drydown, and the base notes shimmer up through the top and middle notes in a seamless, scented wave. A palimpsest is an old document on which the original writing has been erased and replaced with new writing. Sometimes the older writing can still be read under the new, resulting in a complex and beautiful layering. I wanted to evoke the richness that you feel when you experience the past as alive in the present, creating the gorgeous complexity of life.

1ml sample $7

Character: Fruity Floral, lush florals and ripe fruit, creamy and layered, leathery, lasting.

Fragrant Notes: peachy jasmine, fruity ylang, softly animalic, a smidge of vanilla, exotic fire tree.

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.
